A New Fragrance Bottles Up the Scent of the French Riviera
A lingering aperitif, a refreshing breeze soaked with salt water, the slow rise of jasmine at night—late summer along the French Riviera is redolent of relaxed sophistication. As the season draws to an end, Le Méridien Hotels & Resorts relied on its French heritage to create an exclusive signature scent by Malin + Goetz for its hotels.
Named LM002 to resemble an airplane tail number, a nod to the Golden Age of Travel, the fragrance is a heady combination of Atlas cedar, Neroli, black amber, musk, sandalwood, fig, freesia, and star jasmine.
The olfactory ode to warmer months accompanies Le Méridien’s new program, Au Soleil: Summer Soirées, nightly parties that “chase” the sun across both hemispheres at its various outposts with rosé, French Bossa Nova, and games, all of which serve as an excellent antidote to the post-Labor Day slump.
For those who are still desk-bound, an LM002 candle will be available in Malin + Goetz stores this October.
