Peut-être proclaims nothing at all. It is both question and answer, a non-committal promise, tinged with hope; it is a word symbolic of youth,” explained Armand Petitjean, founder of Lancôme. Launched in 1937, just two years after the brand’s creation, Peut-être is a celebration of moments suspended in time. The fleeting freshness of spring and syringa petals form its top notes, halfway between heady scents of jasmine and capricious lilac. Bulgarian rose essence then offers a lively melody of middle notes, playing alongside powdered and resolutely chic iris. With a playful spirit and a resoundingly floral heart, Peut-être draws inspiration from the delicate, refined scents of a French garden. This fragrance encapsulates raw materials of eminent quality. A careful balance impossible to reproduce on a large scale. On skin, the milky, almond and vanilla-tinged balmy musk harmonies cocoon the fragrance’s floral bouquet in a halo of softness. As the hours pass, Peut-être swathes skin in an addictively tender, amber-toned sensation. A truly unforgettable experience.

The bottle is a pared-down, contemporary reinterpretation of the early 1960s glass bottle designed by artist Georges Delhomme, a key figure in the creation of Lancôme’s first fragrances. Transparent and refined, it allows the preciously coloured elixirs encapsulated within to be exalted by light. A most precious case dressed in fine golden lines, an object of luxury and signature French refinement.
