Caron My Ylang & Piu Bellodgia ~ new fragrances

Caron My Ylang and Piu Bellodgia

Caron has launched two new fragrances for women: My Ylang and Più Bellodgia. Both were developed by house perfumer Richard Fraysse.

My Ylang ~ a 'radiant' powdery fruity floral with cassis, mandarin, jasmine, ylang ylang, muguet and green vanilla.

Più Bellodgia ~ a 'romantic' fresh floral flanker to 1927's Bellodgia. The notes include carnation, rose, jasmine, cinnamon, clove, cedarwood, sandalwood and musk.

Caron My Ylang and Più Bellodgia are available in 100 ml Eau de Parfum.

  1. These sound nice. I liked that modern rose Caron did a few years ago.

    Of course, the store that started carrying Caron in Austin promptly closed, so I no longer have access to Carons at all! ha.

      I have not liked anything from them in ages. I’d like to try these, but not very hopeful.

  2. JolieFleurs says:

    Well, a new Caron is always a good thing, so two is even better. New bottles, too?

    I have to temper my enthusiasm (thank you IFRA) but I”ll be trying them for sure.

    Any idea how Piu is pronounced?

    • Robin says:

      In Italian, it sounds like it looks — would be like the English expression pee-yew except that the vowels are shorter. Don’t know how it is pronounced in French.

      Looks like Caron is adopting that as their standard bottle.

    • sullapelle says:

      it’s pronounced pew. Like a church pew. It means “more” in Italian. More perfume!

    These both sound lovely, and I’d like to try them – but I have no idea who – if anyone – carries Caron around here. I’ll have to wait for a decant, I guess.

  4. lizziemarian says:

    I just ordered a sample of Bellodgia (a recommendation from weekend poll – open thread). I’m a bit intimidated by the older Caron’s but I’m hopeful my nose has matured/developed since I last tried any. I do love carnation! So if the original doesn’t work for me I’ll definitely give this one a try if I get the chance.

  5. Joe says:


    I guess there’s always room for hope to spring eternal, but I can’t say these inspire much in me, for whatever reason. (Maybe I can blame one of the stages of perfumistahood?)

  6. Kerry says:

    I have been trying to locate Bellodgia Perfume for over 2 years. Does anyone know where it can be obtained? I live in British Columbia. No major stores or perfumeries carry Bellodgia here. No success on line. Thanks

    • Robin says:

      No idea, sorry. It’s long discontinued now.
