Marie-Louise Carven founded her fashion house in 1945, specialising in producing outfits for women as petite as herself. Well received by Paris’s post-war fashionistas, it went on to expand in both popularity and artistic ambition, as Marie-Louise incorporated exotic textiles like African wax and Indonesian batik into her designs.
Today, that same willingness to push the envelope is evident in the brand’s unique range of eau de toilettes and aftershaves. Ambitious and striking, yet always underpinned by exquisite craftsmanship, the collection brings an infusion of energy and glamour to any look. Although Madame Carven herself is long retired, the brand has been placed in the hands of creative directors who are committed to producing impeccable formulations. Each bottle distils swathes of artistry into a single bottle, every individual drop leaving skin exquisitely fragranced.
Not that the collection limits itself to aroma alone. You’ll also find several expertly formulated shower gels and body creams, which combine the brand’s sensory excellence with proven dermatological effects.
