"IVOIRE. It is the name I have given to a dream. The name of a woman of cool slender beauty draped in pale silk, whom I saw for only an instant descend lightly the stairs of the Opera, and disappear into the night. Ivoire is the glow of this fleeting vision, which struck me with the force of a revelation. There will always be a mystery about Ivoire. An unfinished story. The feeling there is another world to know...emotions to touch...feelings beyond the civilized. And so it came to be. Inspired by her. Ivoire is a tribute to beauty and to woman. Cool and savage as ivory itself. I dedicate this perfume to all those woman in the world who understand the dream of Ivoire so very well.
