In the time of Napoleon’s armies, generals communicated by drumbeat. There was a particular drum roll, called La Chamade, which meant to beat a retreat. Who can say that their heart has never capitulated and beat a retreat to the rhythm of La Chamade?
Created in 1969 by Jean-Paul Guerlain, Chamade is a perfume created in homage to this exceptional moment, when the heart surrenders to love.
The Heart Surrenders
A heart that beats La Chamade is translating the effervescence of love, the moment when the heart capitulates in the face of emotional intensity. This perfume is a hymn to love that unfurls like the spring with equal grace, femininity and attraction. With flowers in a thousand nuanced shades, this perfume speaks of romantic and audacious woman who serenely accepts the inclinations of her heart. A concerto of flowers mixed with fruit, orchestrated by the softness of vanilla and oriental notes. The heart turns upside down to form a bottle capped with a stopper inspired by, you guessed it, Cupid’s arrow.
Oriental fruity floral Dynamic, assertive, seductive. For the first time in perfumery, Jean-Paul Guerlain introduced to a formula the green and fruity accent of cassis buds, freshened with a green harmony of hyacinth. Lastly, this symphony is embellished with Guerlinade, in which vanilla, iris and Tonka bean reign in majesty.
Spray a few drops of Extract or Eau de Toilette on neutral body milk or cream so that each inch of skin can be delicately perfumed.
