In Sanahunt, the Luxury Department Store brought the flavors of old French niche house perfumes Dorin, founded in 1780. The editors of Vogue UA met with aromas of Dorin and tells about his impressions
To represent the flavors in Kiev arrived the owner and President Dorin Bashar Nasri. Brought his son Mazen, heir to the Empire Dorin and successor of the family business. Bashar 75 (looks about 60), he was born in Syrian Damascus, and arrived in Paris a student to obtain a phD in Geophysics. Your degree and career, everything went much more interesting. Creative, fascinated by the Bashar initially were decorated – furnished palaces and villas for Qatari families who settled in Paris.
Less than five years, as Bashar al-retrained – started to produce movies and television series. As the producer knows it, and Google: is listed on IMDB, including his finest film, drama “blood” based on the novel by Simone de Beauvoir with jodie foster in the lead role.
Engage perfumes Bashar started the case, but Dorin quickly became his life’s work. Has developed a passion Nasri to the colors and forms, and also – to the beautiful stories. “To succeed in creating the fragrance, it is necessary to know life,” he says.
Brand Dorin was founded in the XVII century, perfume, lipstick, blush – innovative for those times compact makeup (both male). Special popularity enjoyed by the theater actors. From 1780 he became a supplier to the court of Marie Antoinette. In the twentieth century it ceased to exist – until it was bought by the Bashar. Nasri Dorin intends to return to its former glory.
The editors of Vogue UA met with all the fragrances of the brand and shares his impressions.
“For me is a continuous inspiration. As all-important integrity of the product, and the people who create it, is entirely beautiful. Didn’t know the brand before, but after the presentation it is simply impossible to forget. Monsieur Nasri very accurately spoke about the luxury industry: “the success of the product is only 10% of the product, the rest is marketing”. Marche Dorin marketing is certainly not necessary.”
“My favorite flavor of Dorin Un Air d’amour Pour Madame with notes of tuberose, vanilla, peach, Magnolia, ylang and frankincense”. The fragrance was originally created for the Sultan of Oman and was intended for men.
“Dorin has been for me the scents you want and need to enjoy life. This is not surprising, because the brand was founded in 1780 and was the official supplier of the court of Queen Marie-Antoinette, and this girl knew how to have fun and relax like no other.
For example, the perfume Versailles in 1780 reveals top notes of almonds, violets and bergamot, heart note he has a peach and rose, which gradually becomes a not less seductive musk and raspberries. It seems to me that such odors is simply impossible to think about something serious.”
“I was not familiar with the brand, and now in love with – still a family business, which, unlike commercial brands that are just saturated with love. It is impossible not to be inspired. And then there’s this story – once you feel involved in the Royal court, the gilded boudoirs and gardens of Versailles.
And, although it is not quite my scent, but “Dorin Un Air d’amour Pour Madame” would be in the mood with great pleasure.”
“Bashar Nasri talked a lot about how popular the brand was in the days of Marie Antoinette. Fragrances is living proof. I decided that the main epithet for them is “courtly”. They remind me of cakes pasta, the gardens of Versailles, the crinolines, the flies whipped hair and curls, about flirting and courtship. Impressed that despite the playful nature, they are made by all the canons of the perfume: sound is beautiful, and beauty does not turn into a monster any moment of disclosure.
With your favorite flavor I’m undecided. But battery that I took, put in the clutch all together they smell so dizzy. Shrub roses, lollipops, jam of plums, exotic bouquets – fire.”
