1935’s aromatic world tour

What do Lancôme’s five legendary Tropiques, Bocages, Conquête, Kypre and Tendres Nuits fragrances all have in common? Escape of course.

In 1935, Lancôme founder Armand Petitjean paid hommage to five continents close to his heart, mixing spicy, leather and woody notes within an array of sunny perfumes, The range not only proved to be a real first, but it also won Petitjean the medal of excellence at the 1935 Brussels Universal Exhibition.
