However, the most unexpected attraction is towards the grave of Victor Noir. There is something unique about how the statue is built. Let’s dive into the story of Victor Noir and what is so special about it.

Victor Noir: The Man Behind The Myth?

Victor Noir’s life story is as touching as it is tragic. An apprentice journalist for “La Marseillaise,” his career and life were cut short in 1870. He was just 22 at the time of his death. Engaged to be married, his untimely death added a layer of romanticism to his legacy. Yet, it’s his grave that continues to fascinate and mystify.

At that time, the owner of the newspaper he worked for, Henri Rochefort, and the editor, Pascal Grousset came to a conflict with Prince Pierre Bonaparte. Pierre was the great-nephew of the famous Napoleon Bonaparte, and cousin of the ruling Emperor at the time Napoleon III. Victor was sent to resolve the issue with another employee. An argument soon broke out between the two parties and Bonaparte shot Victor to his death. 

The murder of Victor outraged the public. On the day of Noir’s funeral, over 100,000 people gathered at Noir’s home. To add more fuel to the fire, Pierre Bonaparte was charged with murder.

 The Creation of The “Sexiest Tomb” | Statue Gives Strangest Benefits! 

Crafted by sculptor Jules Dalou, Victor Noir’s life-size statue captures the journalist in a moment of eternal repose. For some unknown reason, Dalou gave the statue a bulge under the belt, which is of course noticeable.

He is lying with his coat open and hat by his side. The statue’s partially unbuttoned trousers have sparked a legend, leading to its reputation as the “sexiest tomb” in Pere-Lachaise. Around the 1970s, a myth started that kissing his lips, rubbing the crotch, and touching his feet would bring strange benefits. Visitors, particularly women, are drawn to the grave. They believe that touching the statue can enhance fertility and help in finding love.

The legend surrounding Victor Noir’s grave has grown over the years, with many attributing powers of fertility and love to the statue. Touch his right foot, if you wish to get pregnant, and touch his left foot if you want to have twins. According to the tale, a baby will soon approach for mothers-to-be and a man will soon follow for single ladies. This belief is so strong that you can even notice how shiny Noir’s lips and groin are compared to the rest. The rest of his body has the usual greenish tone of oxidized bronze. 

Fifteen years ago, authorities built a protective around it to save the statue. However, a public outcry—especially from Paris’s female population—led to its removal.
