Almost 100 years ago, on August 21, 1911, Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa was stolen right off the wall in the Louvre museum. In the same period, during the decadent Belle Epoque, Brocard created a special perfume inspired by one of the most famous paintings. La Joconde was a luxurious creation for the Russian aristocrats but WWI has started and ended with the 1917 Revolution. The perfume had not the time to bloom and disappeared too soon in the history leaving almost no trace. The painting was found but the scent of Mona Lisa imagined by Brocard not. Like the smile on the face of the mysterious Renaissance beauty, the precious perfume has vanished leaving some some puzzles to solve. Today the painting in the Louvre is sealed in glass like a mummy in a crystal coffin. You cannot come too close to Mona Lisa and nobody could ever smell her presence, if by any chance there would be a drop of life in her smile, a drop of perfume on her neck.Profumo.it created in the past a bespoke perfume called Mona Lisa, very sensual, musky, civet and white floral, all natural.
