Tsarevna Lebed (Swan Princess)

 Created By

Tsarevna Lebed is a poetic image a fine young sorceress from old legends conveying a symbol of Russian maidenly modesty, chastity, greatness and mysterious charms of fairytale beauties. Her refined northern magnificence inspires great painters, poets and composers. Alexander Pushkin’s great work ‘The Tale of Tsar Saltan’ narrates about the power and fragility of a mysterious sorceress. The ballet by Tchaikovsky reveals her femininity. Ephemeral colors in Vrubel’s painting ‘Swan Queen’ reveal the secret of her unearthly beauty. Weightless wings glide across the dark surface of the sea. Splashes of brine freeze solid in the gem-studded crown reflecting the shine of distant stars. Swan queen whirls around on the border of the worlds.

The fragrance of Tsarevna Lebed is an olfactory interpretation of an image of a graceful and wonderfully beautiful lady. The inspiration for creating this fragrance came from Russian arts. Drawing the harmony of strength and tenderness from the works by Alexander Pushkin, the beauty of the image and the vibrant colours from the dancers’ dresses in ‘The Russian Seasons’ by Dyagilev, and mystical tinge from the paintings of the Silver Age. This fragrance is something between dream and reality, a swing of wings between the clouds and the sea foam, an allegory of fine subtlety and exclusive gracefulness. The fairytale aroma envelops you in a fragrant cloud of powdery sweet petals of jasmine, magnolia, and orchids, invigorating notes of hawthorn, sandal, musk and balsamic vanilla.

Bertrand Duchaufour

Bertrand began his perfumer career in Grasse in 1985. He learned from the senior Master Perfumers at Florasynth and Symrise and shaped during all these years his own approach to Perfumery.

“I had acquired a very specific approach to perfumery, which is that of all the perfumers in the big labs. By becoming independent, by working in my own lab, directly on my formulas, by weighing them, I’ve developed a different approach to perfumery, another way of building my perfumes. My control over raw materials is getting better and better”. - Bertrand Duchaufour.
