The golden figure on Arpège’s perfume bottle depicts Jeanne and Marguerite attending a ball. It stands a symbol of maternal love, becoming the House of Lanvin logo 1954. Lanvin became known for mother-daughter outfits. Since 1993, it has focused on luxury ready-to-wear, accessories and perfumes like Eclat D'arpege, L’homee, Vetyver, Oxygene and Rumeur.
