Luca Turin describes Gia as ” … a fragrance uncannily close to Paul Parquet’s epochal Parfum Idéal (Houbigant, 1900), which I found in a Moscow antique store, unopened, 90 years later. I cannot improve on Hendley’s own description of Gia as a ‘sumptuous, spiced perfume evocative of nights out in the finest makeup and furs.’ J’allais le dire.”
