Moulin Rouge: New Aromaleigh Collection

French Can-Can dancers in action
Aromaleigh is rolling some big dice! The new Moulin Rouge collection comprises 35 colors in shades and finishes to suit every taste bud you have! For those of you who are not familiar with the Moulin Rouge (French for "red mill" [there is a large red windmill on its roof]), it is originally a cabaret in France (the movie came much later) and the birthplace of the modern can-can dance. Opened on October 6, 1889, it was "originally introduced as a seductive dance by the courtesans who operated from the site, the can-can dance revue evolved into a form of entertainment of its own and led to the introduction of cabarets across Europe" (Wikipedia quote). The Moulin Rouge is associated with beautiful women and the gorgeous colors and textures of the their costumes.

 And here is the new beautiful LE collection

What colors do you fancy? I'm eyeing full sizes of the following: Dentelle (French for "lace"), Crinoline, Blanche, Can-Can, Knickers, Frou-Frou, and Frisson ("chill")! You can get color descriptions at the link above; swatches to come soon. Miss K. comes up with the best collection themes, doesn't she? :-)


  1. Great post. I had a quick look at the collection online yesterday and I think that 35 is not so much a collection but a full range! I personally prefer 10 or so in a collection, particularly LE's as I think that one is more likely to buy the sample set and perhaps find a gem which you wouldn't have discovered otherwise. I do however like the themes. I await the swatch pics Lisa!!
