Cabotine is a daughter of Cabochard, a younger cohort perfume, which has preserved the style and distinction of Cabochard. It was created with love and passion, with a very limited budget, and it became a classic of the 1990-ties. It was created by Jean-Claude Delville from IFF, and he was predicted to make a light but lasting perfume, what this was a hard task to do. The perfumer found its formula in floral-aldehyde accord and presented a transparent fragrance with green floral and sharp aldehyde notes. The perfume is very light and easy to wear and at the same time tenacious. It achieved achievement regardless of very limited publicity and promotional support. The composition is created around the ginger lily, also recognised as a butterfly lily, a Himalayan large-petalled white flower. Growing in harsh high mountains climate, this plant blooms for only a few weeks in the spring time, and each flower survives only for a few hours, this is what makes it difficult and almost impossible, to extract the oil. An IFF pioneering researcher, Dr. Braja Mookherjee, found a way to analyse the oil structure using the 'living-flower' technique, and to copy the perfume of the ginger lily, what enabled the industrial production. Cabotine is the first perfume which contains ginger lily in its arrangement. The top notes contain blackcurrant buds, pear, plum and corriander. The heart is composed of rose, tuberose, ylang-ylang, ginger lily, hyacinth, heliotrop, fresia, violet and iris. The base notes are cedarwood, vanilla, tonka bean, cybet, musk and amber. The perfume was created in 1990. The bottle, whose stopper was turned into a form of flower, was created by Thierry Lecoule.
