Sous le manteau at Pierre Hotel

February 8, 2017 | By French Culture Arts

From February 6 to March 14, 2017, French perfume House sous le manteau takes residence at The Pierre Hotel, offering guests its collection of scents based on XIXth Century French love potions.

In the gardens of the monasteries and convents of the Middle Ages, monks and nuns cultivated medicinal plants and herbs. After their decoction, some of the herbs were distinguished by their aphrodisiac, and anaphrodisiac qualities. The resulting recipes were preserved within the religious order, and were later transcribed in the nineteenth century for pharmaceutical dispensaries. The revival of these secrets conceives inspiration; the creation of desire from essences that one cannot resist. Ancient formulas and centuries-old legends, rediscovered in the pages of yore.
