Latest Le Bolshoi fragrance is Guerlain’s prized Russian creation


Guerlain’s Le Bolshoi line, dedicated exclusively to the Russian market, has a new family member to its bouquets – the Carmen Le Bolshoi. This is the fourth edition, which follows the Black Swan (2014), La Traviata (2012) and Le Bolshoi (2011). Like the entire line of Le Bolshoi fragrances, the Carmen too is an idea taken out of the books of the famous Russian operas and ballets.

This year’s release of the Carmen Le Bolshoi is special because it marks the celebration of a good long 240 years of the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow. The name Carmen also happens to be the namesake of George Bizet’s opera that also celebrates its 140th anniversary. The signature aroma was composed by expert nose Thierry Wasser, who is responsible for many of the best-selling fragrances put out by the brand. This jasmine, citrus, cedar wood and musk mix is designed to create an air of extravagance right from the bottle design to the time the cool spray leaves its spout.
