Portrayal embodies an artist’s ability to reconnect fragments from different times and places. When society is barren, they are able to transport themselves and immerse in the freedom of rebellion that can be compared to London’s Roaring 1920’s and New York’s grooving 1980’s. With the flamboyant, glamorous and often disaffected companionship of Bright Young People, the artists lose themselves. Desperately seeking something to fill the void, they synergise with art, culture and themselves in order to recreate something infinitely indefinable.
At the heart of Portrayal Woman is a smoky yet sweet mélange created by the fusion of Craven, a Tobacco with a dusting of Vanilla. Brought together with Jasmine at its top and Elemis at its base, it recreates 1920’s liberation. The floral fragrance is for the poised and playfully refined woman who dares to defy. It is heartened with an undertone of the sensuality of Tuberose that together radiates a sultry trail of seductive sillage.

A childhood interest in science and psychiatry may not have predicted Annick Ménardo’s rapid ascent to fragrance stardom, but it certainly presaged the fierce intellect and exacting commitment to perfection that characterizes her creations. After studying in Versailles at ISIPCA, she joined Créations Aromatiques, where she refined her craft under the guidance of Michel Almairac. From 1991 on, she has been employed at Firmenich, where she has created bestselling fragrances for top lines such as Boss for Hugo Boss and Dior Hypnotic Poison. Annick’s composition style is described as precise, exacting, and slightly rebellious, with each note judiciously chosen for memorable, unexpected scents that avoid the clutter that plagues many modern perfumes.
