Les Zazous by Keiko Mecheri Perfume. In World War Ii, French Zazous refused to follow the Nazi line, instead choosing to dance to forbidden jazz
music, live for today and party all night. To honor the character and rebellion against oppressors, Keiko Mecheri Les Zazous was created in 2010 to celebrate this vibrant and near-mystical culture as they defied convention and detested authoritarianism. Fresh aromatic notes start the scent in an indefinable and mysterious manner. Romantic and
head-strong rose soon joins in and provides a bit of intoxication. Animalic suede keeps the fragrance connected to Earthly pleasures, while Peru balm adds a bit of green pine. Smoky sandalwood and slightly damp vetiver are a lively and eclectic mix, and amber provides a warm, familiar sweetness in the dry-down. The impact is sparkling and elegant, glowing at night but more classic and sophisticated in daylight. Undertones of lavender, balm, ambergris, mahogany, honey, iris, blonde tobacco, incense and vanilla may be detected by those with a more subtle palate.
Keiko Mecheri creates perfumes that don’t hesitate to question society and promote free expression. Finding your own path can be difficult but the journey is always rewarding – if perhaps in surprising ways.
