Baby Doll: The woman child of Cécile Matton
In order to create this romantic composition, Yves Saint Laurent called on Cécile Matton. His long studies in perfumery took him to a love of perfumery and to exceptional know-how. Because she lived in Zaire, Cécile Matton developed very powerful sensory skills. Cécile Matton embraces life to the fullest and her dynamism is felt through her olfactory compositions. She particularly enjoys instilling a fruity, sensual and sparkling energy into the scents she creates. She also likes to work with orcanox, musks or even materials filled with sensuality.

Baby Doll, cheerful and sparkling scent notes
Cécile Matton therefore wished to start her composition with ultra fruity and sweet notes, namely that of pineapple, apple, blackcurrant and orange. Originally from Paraguay, pineapple migrated little by little thanks to the Indians who carried it everywhere, calling it “nana”, which means “the fruit”. It was then Christopher Columbus who brought him back from Guadeloupe, and pineapple made its appearance in Europe. Louis XIV demanded that his gardeners grow pineapples in the greenhouses of the Château de Choisy-Le-Roi.
In perfumery, pineapple gives off very sunny fruity tones. Then, the heart of “Baby Doll” then evolves towards ultra flowery notes thanks to the presence of freesia, heliotrope, lily of the valley and rose, enhanced by the spicy tones of cardamom and ginger. Native to South Africa, freesia is the symbol of unconditional love. The freesia is a flower bulb made up of a flexible flower stalk that bears flat, linear, sheathing flowers. In perfumery, freesia is what is called a silent flower, that is, it cannot offer aromas. These are then reproduced in the laboratory using synthetic molecules. The freesia gives off flowery, soft, suave and jasmine tones. Finally, the base of “Baby Doll” evolves towards an exacerbated sensuality and combines vanilla, white musks, cedarwood, sandalwood and tonka bean. The bottle of “Baby Doll” is shaped like a spinning top. Its glass is entirely faceted, like the stopper, which gives it an ultra chic look. The candy-pink colored nectar nevertheless contrasts with the opaque black collar ring, playing on the contrasts one last time.
