1950: Henri Matisse won first prize at the Venice Biennale. Cristobal Balenciaga hired Courrèges. Pierre Cardin set up his fashion house. Baby Doll lingerie is invented. Les Trois Suisses publish their first lingerie catalogue. Lycra is invented and Mother’s Day is introduced.
Le Galion created La Rose, and dedicated it to all women. Paul Vacher used to smell more than 70 species of roses every year in order to elect the one to be used in the composition of this elegant and subtle fragrance, re- interpreted today with delicacy from the original formula. La Rose is not a true single flower fragrance since the main theme is enriched with sensual floral and refreshing aquatic notes. To finish, the patchouli and cyprus leave a bewitching trail.
