First, the first olfactory set from Van Cleef & Arpels
Van Cleef & Arpels was initially one of the greatest Parisian jewelers. Then, in September 1976, the brand decided to sublimate women with an invisible but fragrant adornment. For the first time in the world, Van Cleef & Arpels marked the alliance of jewelry and perfumery.

It carries with it all the grace and elegance of Van Cleef & Arpels and has been part of a kind of timelessness since its creation. Van Cleef & Arpels claims to have, through him, offered women “the requirement of the best for eternity”.
