Product details

Two types of women from the Twenties mingle in the same space without ever really meeting. The first is ‘la maitresse de ces messieurs’, a mistress in the tradition of the Second Empire (such chic kept women were among Jovoy’s first clients) and the ‘garçonne’, a term for the emancipated woman, whose look may have been androgynous at times, but who was the first in the history of women’s fashion to reveal her legs.
Soon, brassieres would replace corsets. Thick stockings vanished in favor of silk ones worn rolled over a garter above the knee. It was at this time that the first lipsticks appeared. Rouge Assassin pays tribute to those fearless, unstoppable women who upended the established order and broke all the rules.
While the garçonne look is sometimes considered masculine, femininity is what came through in the way women wore their hair and makeup, in their attitudes, their hunger for freedom and the insatiable desire to love without regard for social codes and conventions.
Thanks to the collaboration of perfumer Amélie Bourgeois (Flair), Rouge Assassin is an homage to femininity that blends lipstick notes (iris butter), with the scent of skin (rice bran, musk, powdery floral accords) and echoes of Parisian cabarets.
