What makes a perfume quintessentially French? Classical construction, top level ingredients, and a tightrope balance between boldness and restraint, inspiration that pulls from the head and the heart, peut-etre? When I first sprayed the Parfums Volnay fragrances on my wrist and inhaled, I could have been blindfolded in a dark room and locked behind a solid lead door, and I would still have known their provenance: Ils incarnent la parfumerie francaise.
