The new fragrance, called Repetto, promises to be as iconic as the lines signature ballet slippers which debuted in 1947 and gained worldwide fame when actress Brigitte Bardot asked for her own pair of ballet flats to be worn for casual use in 1956.
Primarily scented with a powdery-musky rose, Repetto’s notes of cherry blossoms and pear juice is bright and optimistic coupled with essence of rose, orange blossom, soft vanilla and amber-wood. Delicate and warm the scent is created to be memorable like the perfect dance of a ballerina and to envelop the wearer like a delicate satin ribbon.
Today, Repetto still creates ballet essentials and in my opinion ‘the ultimate’ ballet flat developed for the first ballet shoes which is a”cousu-retourné” technique using a stitch and return method. You can even purchase the  ‘Cendrillon’ ballerina which was created especially for and dedicated to Brigitte Bardot.
While the line has many beautiful options, I always have a pair of the Ballerina Bolchoi in black, which remind me of my early days as a child in ballet class.
You can find Repetto products online and in certain select stores.  I recommend purchasing your pair at the boutique found on the Rue de la Paix near the Opera Garnier in Paris.
