Can you cancan…? 1889 Moulin Rouge by Histoires de Parfums The Perfumed Dandy’s Scent Today 

The lights, the music, the girls…. the legs!!!

High kicking its way through history the Moulin Rouge is the seedy legend on the banks of Montmartre

The smell of greasepaint and powder and spicy cocktails, the faintest hint of illicit absinthe.

Surely this scent has the whole Grand Bal captured and bottled, n’est-ce pas?

The opportunity remains to choose other perfumes to be placed on The Dandy’s skin when The Hit Parade returns in the autumn.

If you would like to thrust forward a fragrance for future fame simply visit ‘Suggest and old scent or recommend a new one’ and leave your recommendation there.

Have an especially fragrant day!

Yours ever

The Perfumed Dandy.

    Moulin Rouge is a fun scent. It really does smell like face powder and lipstick and spangled dance dresses, and I got a whiff of horse stable in there, too (must be some patchouli in the base). I have an old souvenir porcelain dish decal’ed with Lautrec’s “Troupe de Mlle Eglantine”, I just remembered that looking at the image above. 🙂 Enjoy, Mr. D.

    Well, I’m game for a little fun and frivolity and as for horses its been a while since we’ve had any animalics other than leather.
    Let the cabaret begin!!
    Yours ever

    PS Oooh, I do like the sound of that porcelain dish, takes me back to the ones I saw at Hermes…
