Women of the 60s are looking for light perfumes that exalt the joy of living. Bohemian trend obliges, the so far masculine Eaux de Cologne are reworked to be feminine and natural essences like the pretty Ô of Lancôme. Citrus but present, chypre but fresh, Ô de Lancôme quickly established itself as one of the absolute best-sellers of the venerable Lancôme house.
An unexpected source of O for women in search of purity
After giving pride of place to flowery perfumes for many years, the end of the 1960s marked the big comeback in perfumery of feminine Eaux de Cologne. It is clear that this winning comeback is closely linked to the international success of the masculine Eau Sauvage three years earlier, a fresh and powerful fragrance that opened the door to the citrus desires of these ladies.
The first to dare the feminine Eau de Cologne will be Ô de Lancôme followed very closely by the Eau de Rochas, conceived on the same very aquatic, very hedione inspiration. Ô de Lancôme is therefore going to offer women in love with wide open spaces and nature a tonic and “healthy” fragrance totally in tune with the times, fields of flowers and romantic waterfalls à la David Hamilton or Sarah Moon .
Ô de Lancôme will therefore be presented under very fresh visuals and advertisements where nature is the main star. Sometimes the beautiful illustrations of waterfalls or greenery will be put forward by “very natural” muses but rarely big stars, except Cristiana Reali in 2000.
Lancôme’s image of Ô changed little between 1969 and the new millennium. However in 2010 a first variation of this beautiful Ô will see the light of day under the name of Ô d’Azur then in 2011 it will be joined by Ô de l’Orangerie . The theme remains the same, communication has been modernized, nevertheless the flagship values of the original perfume remain the same.
“Sensually fresh and invigorating, deliciously spontaneous and natural, Ô de Lancôme is inimitable in its lightness and cheerfulness. Pierced with light, its beautiful water-green color is an invitation to soar through the grasses pearled with early morning dew. »Lancôme for Ô de Lancôme.
Ô de Lancôme: an original fresh chypre!
The Ô de Lancôme bottle was designed by the great specialist in perfumed bottles Serge Mansau. The slender glass column, which will remind us strangely that of Eau de Rochas a year later, is intended to represent a powerful nature that is adorned with a bright and joyful green juice, very vegetal in short. The glass of this beautiful bottle is engraved with geometric grooves created to recall the movements of water in the sand, which again inspired many of the following perfumes.
Ô de Lancôme opens with ultra tangy notes of petitgrain, lemon, mandarin and bergamot. Then the heart will light up with precious and delicate white flowers of jasmine, lily of the valley and honeysuckle while marrying with a powerful aromatic accord (basil, rosemary and coriander). Finally, oakmoss, sandalwood and vetiver bring their deliciously chypre nervous sensuality to this beautiful plant.
“Combine freshness and sensuality with Ô by Lancôme. This fresh and invigorating Eau de Toilette, deliciously spontaneous and natural, embodies lightness and the joy of living. »Lancôme for Ô de Lancôme.
