The scent was re-released in 2013.
The perfumer Jean Carles lost his sense of smell while he was still actively producing fragrances. It appears he hid the fact that he was completely anosmic in order to continue working, multiple sources report this due to personal conversations with him. His odour memory and imagination were good enough to continue to create great perfumes - like Beethoven who continued to compose music despite deafness. Ma Griffe is the fragrance most notably affected by Jean Carles' anosmia, though in 1947 he went on to work with Serge Heftler Louiche and Paul Vacher on the original Miss Dior.
Furthermore rumour has it that Ma Griffe was introduced to Parisians in 1946 by hundreds or even thousands of tiny, white and green parachutes, each containing a sample of the scent, that were dropped all over Paris. As a result, for the next few days the smell of Ma Griffe lingered through the entire city.
