A Rivière is a classic necklace comprised of gemstones that are of identical size or seamlessly graduated.
One of the most famous Rivière necklaces belonged to Queen Mary and consisted of 34 old cut diamonds. She gifted the necklace to her granddaughter, Princess Margaret, and it was sold at Christie’s for almost £1 million in 2006. Like its namesake, our Rivière fragrance is dedicated to balance with a flawless progression of rare and sparkling ingredients combined to adorn the skin.
Shimmering at the top, spiced notes of Indian black pepper and Persian saffron meld mellifluously into cinnamon from Ceylon and a luminous lemon blossom accord. This dazzling opening segues into a deep, faceted heart of Russian clary sage over Turkish rose and carnation, polished with a warm, burnished patchouli from Indonesia. The iridescent base of golden amber and oud, infused with soft, opulent Indian cypriol and a sun drenched leather enrich this jewel with a dark resinous glow. Rivière conveys a sophisticated brilliance – its elegant simplicity disguising a meticulous construct. An olfactory masterclass for perfume perfectionists.
