Le Deuxième Parfum is the second fragrance created by Pauline Rochas and Carole Beaupré. ;Delicate yet mysterious, Le Deuxième Parfum is a sensory articulation of love. ;Like a lover’s hand that gently brushes your skin, Le Deuxième Parfum embraces your senses, transcending the spiritual while awakening the physical.
A gentle floral balance of essential oils — Peru balsam, Bergamot from Calabria, Tunisian Orange Flower Absolute, Ylang Ylang from Madagascar — activates Anahata, the Heart Chakra, an energy center nestled between the breasts along the central vertical axis of the spine.
When engaged, Anahata — Sanskrit for "unhurt, unstruck, unbeaten"— opens the body and soul to the radiating life energy of love. The heart blooms like a fragrant flower — a harmony of passion, devotion, and sensuality.
Like an alluring glance, Le Deuxième Parfum is ethereal but potent, fusing the spiritual and the sensual in a tender embrace.
After a successful collaboration on Le Premier Parfum, Pauline Rochas and Carole Beaupré once again tapped renowned nose Patricia Choux to create Le Deuxième Parfum. ;Their shared French heritage and deep appreciation for grand noses and classic perfumes made for another seamless partnership. ;Like its predecessor, Le Deuxième Parfum does not have traditional top, heart, or base notes. Choux embraced the opportunity to once again work with a minimal palette, creating an elegant and immaculate formula from seven raw ingredients.
Creative Director Marc Atlan designed the fragrance’s packaging. ;Rochas and Beaupré wanted the design to be powerful, minimal, and unisex. ;The bottle they choose has soft curves and clean lines that evoke sensuality. The outer packaging is made of heavy matte black paper with a soft touch that is reminiscent of skin, balancing the softness of the bottle inside.
