ARPÈGE by LANVIN 100ml is a Floral Aldehyde fragrance for women. Arpege was launched in 1927 and was created by Paul Vacher and Andre Fraysse. This perfume is the winner of award FiFi Award Hall Of Fame 2005.

This famous perfume was made by Andre Fraysse for Lavine home in 1927. The name was chosen by the daughter of the perfumer. Since she had been involved into music she chose name “Arpege”, i.e. music term arpeggio. The original 1927 formula incredibly corresponded to its musical term – the notes of perfume play their theme alternately. In 1993, the perfume was reconstructed and that was a successful work. The composition was mostly well preserved, but still that was second great perfume. The bottle is lovely, too. The beautiful figures on the black misted background representing mother and daughter (wife and daughter of the perfumer), who are getting ready for the ball. In October 2009 the house of Lanvin presents Arpege 120, their popular fragrance created back in 1927, reformed in 1993. The fragrance is composed of such notes as aldehydes, peach, bergamot, orange blossom, honeysuckle, iris, rose, jasmine, ylang-ylang, coriander, mimosa, tuberose, geranium, sandalwood, vetiver, patchouli, vanilla and musk.
New package is work of art director of the house of Lanvin – Alber Elbaz, whose main theme was mother-daughter relation, i.e. sketches of Jean Lanvin and her daughter Margaret, dressed in gorgeous violet dresses created in Parisian style. Lanvin celebrates 120 years of the house with sketched black flacon with golden details and pink hearts around mother and daughter.

We offer NZ’s best prices for a discerning market. Enjoy prices that are a cut above bargain basement and well below department stores. Our fragrances are the genuine article, but it is the integrity or quality of the perfume that matters. There are many reasons why perfumes spoil, often well before they are purchased by the consumer. Heat is the biggest culprit (that we term baked, like wine).


Many perfume discounters use sea freight for a month or so without climate control in a metal container ( New York to Auckland) plus however long they sit on the dock. At Designer Direct we only use Air Freight. Costly but your nose will love you.


The cheaper the fragrance, the less of a bargain you’re getting, and the more likely it was stored with a lack of climate-controlled warehousing. Both our NZ stores where we ship orders from have climate control.
