WHIFF OF FREEDOM: Luxury perfumer Caron is marking its 110th anniversary with a new fragrance called Lady Caron. Inspired by the Statue of Liberty, the scent is a tribute to the French company’s founder, perfumer Ernest Daltroff, who left Paris during World War II for the safety of New York. The scent features notes of magnolia, rose, jasmine, raspberry and peaches with an oak moss base and is based on Caron’s perfume creator Richard Fraysse’s namesake fragrance from 2000.

The perfume is priced at 105 pounds, or $179 at current exchange, and will be sold starting in the fall at stores including Fortnum & Mason, Harrods and Les Senteurs in London.

“It is an homage to the Caron’s founder Ernest Daltroff, who fled Paris and the Nazis for New York,” Fraysse told WWD. “Lady Liberty was the inspiration behind Lady Caron, an elegant floral chypre with notes of magnolia, rose, jasmine and a fruity punch of raspberry and peaches.”

Founded in 1904 by Daltroff, Caron produces men’s and women’s fragrances, powders and accessories and has three boutiques in Paris and one in New York.
