Lanvin is known as a high-end, luxury fashion house today, but it was founded in 1889 as a small boutique by a lady called Jeanne Lanvin. Jeanne’s daughter, Marguerite became a beautiful inspiration for her to design dresses. She made dresses for Marguerite as well as her dolls. It was in 1924 that Jeanne Lanvin decided to launch her range of perfumes in the attempt to create global dynamics. She considered it an important part of her conceptualization of fashion and lifestyle. My Sin was the first perfume launched by Lanvin and was formulated by a Russian lady called Mary Zede.
