Parti Pris - By Terry
Manufacturer: By Terry
Olfactory family: Floral Woody.
Parti Pris delivers its ‘Haute Féminité’ in seconds.
Instantly recognisable, the tuberose is exquisite and compelling, revealing its power of seduction in a precious floral bouquet.
The sweet, absolute orange blossom melts into the richness of the absolute Turkish rose together with a hint of an exceptional ylang ylang, created exclusively by the Maison Robertet.
At the base, a surprising vintage accord through smoked vetiver and sandalwood together with Vanilla and Tolu balm.
Incense, Turkish tobacco absolute, rockrose and labdanum echo ancient perfume accords.
The resulting scent is the aura of chicness swathed in silk.
Top notes: Tangerine and orange blossom.
Middles notes: Tuberose, ylang-ylang and Turkish rose.
Base notes: Vetiver, sandalwood, vanilla, tolu balsam, incense, snuff and labdanum.

As one of the star noses at Robertet, Jacques Flori has been a highly sought-after perfumer by major and exclusive brands alike. Often known for his mastery of complex, beautiful incense scents, Flori has worked for ultra-high end brands such as Amouage, Xerjoff, Etro, and other prestigious and historic brands such as Jovoy and Balmain.
Karine Vinchon Spehner
After 2 years studying at ISIPCA, Karine Vinchon Spehner started her career at Robertet alongside master perfumer Michel Almairac before becoming a junior perfumer in 2006.
Nature plays a key role in Karine’s inspiration and memories. She loves to work with woody and ambery notes as well as natural essences such as patchouli and vétiver.
Childhood family vacations in the French countryside introduced Sidonie Lancesseur to the beauty of the scents of the natural world, and an internship in Grasse solidified her ambition to become a perfumer. After completing her studies at ISIPCA, she began work at Robertet, and was mentored by Michel Almairac. Known for her elegantly simple, natural-heavy fragrances, Lancesseur has been responsible for several very well-received niche fragrances, from By Kilian’s Straight to Heaven, to Frapin’s 1270 and L’humaniste, and Olfactive Studio’s Lumiere Blanche.
Captivated by the intricate work of Haute Couture embroideries, excited by the contemporary art masters that she has been collecting for years and fascinated by plant science and it’s botanical mysteries,
Terry was looking for her perfect fragrance “fit”. Just like a vintage couture dress, a precious stone or a sky-high stiletto.
Her scents are infused with the paradoxes of a woman who loves the extravagance of a breathtaking décor, as much as the easy beauty of a garden in May.
