In September 2016 Gri Gri Parfums – the latest project of talented French perfumer Anaïs Biguine, also known from her Jardins D’Écrivains and Les Cocottes de Paris lines will introduce Sideshow, the fourth “Eau de Parfum For Tattooed Skin” . Persefume already presented news article about the first trio and we had also brief occasion to smell preview sample of Sideshow during last Esxence – it was definitely unique and imaginative creation!

Both sweet and animalic Sideshow is inspired by American gatherings full of curiosities.

When sideshows still performed throughout the United States, tattoos were a real attraction in 19th-century circuses. While tattoos are considered an artistic statement today, at the time, they were the subject of curiosity.
This parade of scents brings to mind carnival sweets and treats. Cotton candy and candy apple blend with the fantastical fragrances of hyraceum and leather, evoking the exoticism of the traveling circus. A freakishly attractive enchantment.
