Description

After the Ondée: A painting perfume signed Jacques Guerlain …

After the Ripple is a perfume composed by Jacques Guerlain and adored since 1906 for its rare flowery delicacies, its instant emotion, its floral and airy grace. Après l’Ondée is considered one of the perfumed masterpieces of the Guerlain house.

After the Ondée or when Guerlain paints perfumes to better retain the moment

Little known today to the general public, Après l’Ondée is a benchmark in modern perfumery for all connoisseurs of this art. However, this marvelous perfume has the sole ambition of painting “an olfactory picture of a country landscape once again bathed in the rays of the sun, just after the rain” as Jacques Guerlain affirmed.

A simple dream but a grandiose achievement by a “painter” of perfumery who exercises his talents both in the selection of natural raw materials of choice and in the sublimation of synthetic notes still unheard of in perfume, such as anisic aldehyde, heliotropin or even ionones.

Thanks to Aimé Guerlain and his famous Jicky released a few years earlier, perfumery now dares to portray atmospheres and stories to us. Sometimes it is an impossible love story, sometimes quite simply the magic of an instant, which moreover will become the signature of the perfumes that Jacques Guerlain will later sign such as L’Heure Bleue, another great perfume-emotion.

As Sylvaine Delacourte nose Guerlain describes: “It is a perfume [Après l’Ondée] full of nuances, delicacy, in communion with the elements of the earth, a perfume that celebrates fine weather after the rain, a perfume that makes you want to walk barefoot in the grass. “

After the Ondée a floral fragrance composed like an ode to nature

The original Après l’Ondée bottle was inspired by the love of the famous Marie-Antoinette for very” country ” basketwork and therefore appears in the glass of precious ornaments. As for the clover cap, it simply symbolizes the flower of the fields. Today After The Ripple is presented in the traditional bee bottle of Guerlain’s first great success, Eau de Cologne Impériale.

The top notes are fresh and tangy thanks to lemon and bergamot, sprinkled with the aniseed and slightly exotic delicacy of ner oli flower. At the heart it is violet, carnation and hawthorn which offer their precious scents in contrast with the powdery notes of overdosed iris root. The iris, present in quantity, moreover leads one to think that After the Ripple would be an “iris wet with dew pearls”. 2The oregano accord (in common with the future Heure Bleue), embellished with a few cloves, prolongs the f reshness and the bewitching fragrance of the lovely mimosa. Finally, this bucolic walk ends in a wake of heliotrope, vanilla and benzoin reminding us that the Guerlinade was subsequently developed by the same perfumer.

“Guerlain creations each have their own history and sometimes have great similarities. This is the case with Après l’Ondée and L’Heure Bleue, two landscape scents that draw their inspiration from the beauty of a moment and a photograph of nature. If Après l’Ondée were a painting it would be a delightful and colorful watercolor of the future Blue Hour.

Released in 1906, “ Après l’Ondée ”tells the story of a thunderstorm on a beautiful spring day. When the storm comes to an end, the sky clears and rays of sun, still timid, appear. “Après l’Ondée” is a perfume that could not be more poetic. Impressed by the smell of this shower, Jacques Guerlain has chosen here to transcribe it olfactively and to capture this very particular smell composed with delicacy. Mixed with wet roses, damp grass, rain and sun, “Après l’Ondée” is a dazzling natural fragrance. < / p>

After the Ripple, Jacques Guerlain captures the smell of the ripple with magic

Jacques Édouard Guerlain was born in 1874 and died in 1963. He corresponds to the third generation of Guerlain perfumer. Very influential, Jacques Guerlain has no less than 80 perfumes to his credit. He is therefore the grandson of the brand founder, Pierre-François-Pascal Guerlain. He succeeds his uncle Aimé, who taught him everything about the art of perfumery. It was Jacques Guerlain who opened the boutique on the Champs-Élysées in 1912 as well as that of the Place Vendôme in 1935. “L’Heure Bleue”, composed in 1912 was one of his first successes, followed in 1925 by the mythical “Shalimar”. Jacques Guerlain can boast of having contributed to the international success of the Guerlain house. We owe him great perfumes such as “Mitsouko, Night Flight” or “Russian Leather”.

Guerlain Après l’Ondée and its bucolic olfactory notes

The beginning of “Après l’Ondée” is as bright as it is fresh and combines lemon, bergamot and neroli. The geographical origins of lemon are between China and India, 2,500 years ago. We will then find the lemon on the “Silk Road” and it will travel to the Middle East. The lemon will continue on its way to Asia Minor and Italy. At the very beginning, lemon is only used for its therapeutic virtues, it is even prescribed by some doctors to fight against fever. Lemon became known in Europe from the 12th century and in Florida, which would become a major producer in the 16th century. In perfumery, lemon essential oil is obtained by cold distillation of the zest of the fruit. Lemon offers very fresh, tangy and zesty tones. Then, the heart of “Après l’Ondée” is both floral and powdery and combines iris, mimosa and violet. Mimosa is an association of curly and golden flowers of an ultra-bright bright yellow, which one cannot help admiring. In the language of flowers, the mimosa symbolizes elegance, tenderness and delivers a message of friendship. Since 1931, the city of Mandelieu-la-Napoule (Alpes Maritimes) has been the capital of mimosa. Each year, the mimosa is at the center of a great popular festival that lasts 10 days. In perfumery, mimosa gives off tones that are both powdery, green and slightly honeyed. Finally, the base of “Après l’Ondée” is ultra sensual, even carnal thanks to the presence of styrax, white musks, heliotrope and vanilla.
