Resolutely dedicated to contemporary, spontaneous and modern women, “Ô Oui” is the emotional fragrance of the 2000s.

Optimistic and liberated, the Lancôme woman fascinates, she is just an exceptional woman. “O Yes” is a hymn to life, to youth, to the beauty of women.
Ô Yes, a scented Yes signed Harry Frémont
To create the fragrance symbolizing the beauty of life, the Lancôme brand called on the perfumer Harry Frémont. Born in Cannes, Henry Frémont graduated from the prestigious Versailles school of perfumery, ISIPCA. In 1984 and 1985, Harry Frémont won the Prix de la Société Technique des Parfumeurs de France. In 1990, Harry Frémont joined the Firmenich company in New York. Harry Frémont has a precise idea of what a perfume should be and a journalist explains “He is convinced that an excellent perfume must have character, a signature and a recognizable aura. It must surprise without being overwhelming. Harry does not believe in compromise when it comes to beauty and quality… For him these are equally important aspects of his work that he strives to experience in each of his creations ”… We owe it to Harry Frémont of great perfumes such as “CK” by Calvin Klein or “Mon Paris” by Yves Saint Laurent.
The fruity freshness of the Ô Oui perfume by Lancôme
Very optimistic, ” Ô Oui ”begins with fresh and fruity notes thanks to the presence of bergamot, clementine, tangerine, nectarine, orange combined with the floral and green touch of hyacinth. Clementine was born in the 20th century thanks to Father Clément, a religious from the Oran region (Algeria). Clementine comes from a hybrid between bitter orange and mandarin and will therefore be called clementine in reference to its “founder”. Corsica will cultivate the clementine from 1925, but it will be necessary to wait until 1970 so that the clementine occupies the aisles of the French markets. In perfumery, clementine gives off green, fruity, tangy and sweet tones. Then, the heart of “Ô Oui” is a wonderful combination of flowers and fruits and combines honeysuckle, pineapple, pear, green apple, rose, lily of the valley, white flowers and freesia. Honeysuckle comes from temperate regions of Europe. The honeysuckle is actually a fragrant vine, the leaves of which are attached two by two, face to face. Honeysuckle has been known since ancient times for its antibiotic and antiseptic powers. In perfumery, honeysuckle is what is called a “mute flower”, meaning that an essential oil cannot be extracted from it. It is then reproduced identically in the laboratory. Honeysuckle gives off fresh, green, jasmine and sweet scents. Finally, the base of “Ô Oui” is loaded with sensuality thanks to musks, cedarwood, water lily and amber.
