L’Air Barbès is a cold, light and fresh scent for him or her that is a tribute to the city of Paris, capital de la mode. Evocative of Paris’ different personas such as concrete alleyways, le banlieue and the area of Barbès – Rochechouart.

    I love the idea of a fragrance discovery kit. A great way to sample many fragrances and then choose the one or more that you love. I love that each fragrance has a theme and story. One of my favourite albums to listen to back in 1970 was Woodstock Live. Thanks for taking me back to that era. The 70’s was sex, drugs and rock in roll.
