Repetto EDT: As Graceful As A Ballerina
I believe every little girl's dream is to be a Ballerina or participate in a Ballet class, at the very least. It was a dream of mine, but a Ballet class meant spending a fortune on my mother's part that time. I was a very understanding kid so instead of Ballet, I joined a theatre workshop to express my artistic side-it was cheaper, but I've come to love it because it involved more than dancing-there was acting and singing too! I loved it so much that I chose it as my course in college.
Still, I remain a fan of Ballet. I am always left in awe whenever I watch a Ballet performance: bodies gliding through the stage in sheer grace, hands and feet that flutter and float lightly in the air like a strand of satin ribbon, and the way a Ballerina gets lost in the music until she becomes it-Ah, Ballet is an art that plucks at your heart's chord strings and leaves your entire being swaying in delight.
What's all this Ballet nostalgia? Well, it is because Repetto, a world- famous fashion brand that started making Ballet shoes and dance footwear (and the rest is history) since 1947 is launching something grand, an important milestone in the fashion house's artistic history. In 1947, Rose Repetto created the much- coveted dance shoes made in cousu-retourne (stitch and return method) for his choreographer son, Roland Petit. In 1956, Madame Repetto created the famous Cendrillon Ballerina for dancer-turned-actress Brigitte Bardot for Roger Vadim's film "And God Created Woman". In 1970, Madame Repetto created the Zizi Shoe for her daughter-in-law, Zizi Jeanmaire and later on became singer Serge Gainsbourg's favorite shoe that he amassed a collection every single year.
In 2013, Repetto came back, bringing with them a bit of high art history with a modern twist through Repetto EDT, the first fragrance of the iconic French label.
A fragrance inspired by no other than Ballerinas, Repetto EDT is a smooth, elegant fragrance that sends you spiraling into the world of Ballet. Première Danseuse, Dorothée Gilbert, is Repetto's latest ambassador and the face of this new graceful elixir.

"I sought to achieve a hand-sewn effect by combining a selection of luxurious and authentic raw ingredients. A musky powdered rose, a real quintessence of femininity. It's a refined formula for which I had the real pleasure of using essence of rose and vanilla"
-Oliver Polge, master perfumer, Repetto EDT
The Top notes open up to an ensemble of Pear and Cherry Blossom. Heart notes reveal an orchestra of Rose and Orange Blossom, and the Base notes close the performance with Woody Notes, Amber, and Vanilla Pod-it's the beauty of a Ballet performance encapsulated in a curvaceous, airy bottle adorned with Repetto's signature Pink ribbon and an 'r' pendant.
Don't you just love how effortlessly elegant French products are? I must've been a French woman in my previous life as I appreciate their culture and anything made by them so much!
