Perfumes have been offered by Balmain since the 1940s, with the introduction of Elysées 64-83 (his phone number) in 1945. 1947's legendary scent Vent Vert, still in production today, was one of the best-sellers of the 1940s and 1950s. Balmain's Jolie Madame was iconic in its representation of the new post-war 1950s woman.
The composition is created by Emilie (Bevierre) Coppermann as an oriental floral. The initial accords include crystalline rose, nashi pear and osmanthus. Sharry Baby orchid that smells like chocolate dominates the heart, accompanied by sexy and dark iris and night jasmine. The scent ends with amarys, sandalwood and cashmere wood with a touch of Barenia leather.
