Sous Le Manteau

£19
 

Have you ever dreamt of creating a real love potion? Where would you begin? Well for Olivia Bransbourg founder of Sous Le Manteau it all started when she discovered a 19th Century book of actual French love potions in a Parisian flea market. Fascinated by the centuries-old recipes and with the help of perfumer Nathalie Feisthauer, these potions were reincarnated into FIVE divine fragrances.

Sous Le Manteau is a French Niche perfume house we can’t stop obsessing over; steeped in love, history, modern aesthetics and divine fragrances (sorry, love potions). Now immerse yourself in the ENTIRE COLLECTION at home. (The big question: who will you beguile with these…?)
