The "Singing Cafés" of the Belle Époque- renowned venues of theatre, song and drink that played a major role in the revitalization of Paris in the late 19th century. Artists, socialites and revelers of every social strata flocked to these magical establishments in droves, cultivating an optimism and cultural explosion of unparalleled energy. With Café Chantant, Nobile 1942 pays tribute to the unique atmosphere of the Singing Café, from the elegant chypres worn by fashionable ladies, to the rich tobacco smoke of their gentleman companions, and even the delicacies on the tables and in the cocktail glasses, for a fragrance of rich, creamy, aromatic depth.
Café Chantant opens with a juicy burst of sweet black cherry and mouthwatering spice, immediately enveloping us in a world of heady liquors and exotic delights. A powdery floral heart of heliotrope and iris recalls the exquisite cosmetics and larger than life fragrances of years past, while a base of deeply creamy vanilla and rich, musky patchouli and benzoin swoons with an atmosphere both sultry and gourmand. The overall effect is complex, evocative and dreamlike- a window into an incomparably glamorous past.
