Eau de Parfum | Le Galion

L'Astre - a perfume inspired by the epitome of glamour, decadence and refinery - Ava Gardner.

Monsieur Vacher, the founder and perfumer of Le Galion, introduced to and dazzled by her, made her the face and ambassador for "Sortilege", the top selling high society Perfume of the 1950s.

Following this hugely successful campaign, Ava asked if Vacher would create her a bespoke artisan creation, like an olfactory jewel that radiated distinction, femininity, and opulence.

Fast forward 70 years, and we are introduced to a cleverly balanced, contemporary re-working of the original formula; previously private and closely guarded by her estate and heirs, this brilliant and shimmering composition of opulent florals with a hint of spices and plush amber undertones is now available to experience.

Perfumer: Rodrigo Flores-Roux

Rodrigo describing the composition and the inspiration as "An elixir of opulence that sweeps away inhibitions and abolishes hesitations. A perfume that seeks - and certainly finds - the most complete attention. L'Astre is a large, exuberant and magnetic floral. Its catchphrase is made of aphrodisiac spices to symbolise the burning gaze and maddening beauty of Ava Gardner. Then I worked on a spectacular floral accord - especially white flowers - to underline its impressive aura and wink at the grand bouquets of that era. Finally, the seductive number continues in the amber background, warm, enveloping and in my opinion borderline licentious…"
