Abstract:[Names of perfumes: A semiolinguistic analysis]
The identity of a perfume is most often built by means of its name. The various perfume houses make use of an unconventional element when “baptising” such a beauty product. There are perfumes that, as a result of metonymy, bear the names of a flower whose fragrance is part of their composition: Muguet, Gardénia, Jasmin, Jardins de Bagatelle; other perfumes are named after their creators: Cardin, Armani, Gucci, Channel. There are also perfumes that display a strong exotic image (Kokaï, Fidji) or that evoke a certain state of mind (Complice, Câline, Interdit, Passion, Magie).
This study aims at highlighting the semiolinguistic aspects that are involved in naming a perfume and that assign this artefact to a specific sociocultural framework.
Key words:names of perfumes, semiolinguistic, sociocultural
