Mainstream Monday: Sniffing a Popular Perfume
Grès was a French haute couture fashion house by Germaine Émilie Krebs, later known as Madame Grès. This fashion house is the epitome of decades of Old Hollywood drama – drapery, hoods, capes, dramatic sleeves… Cabochard, the house’s first perfume, was inspired by trips to India – sandalwood and salt air. It may be inspired by India but it’s evocative of French perfumery and fashion of the time. It’s more like a casino in Monaco.
