Shalini Kumar – New York-based fashion designer, and owner/creative director of Shalini Parfum – is about to launch her fourth fragrance, Paradis Provence. After Shalini (2004), Jardin Nocturne (2017), and Amorem Rose (2018), the new opus features the Provence region in France, and the focus of the composition is around aromatics like lavender and thyme.
Where the solar energy lights your soul. The golden sunshine warms your skin, and soft breezes caress your senses… A feeling of deep relaxation prevails. Paradis Provence is the fragrance of the eternal summer – of our youth, our imagination and our passion. A happy summer of blue salt and crystal
Created by Master Perfumer Maurice Roucel, who who is also responsible for all of the other perfumes of Shaline, Paradis Provence is a solar composition of lavande absolut, thyme and orange blossoms. It carries you to the days of blue and gold and warms your soul with it’s sunlight. Lavande absolut is the purest essence of this blue flower that is the heart of Provence. The sight of rows of endless blue in the summer is magnificent. The parfum captures the essence of lavender that insights courage and encourages you to share your True self with others. Thyme with it’s golden beam of light, cleanses and heals. It opens your heart to receive love. Orchards of orange blossoms laden by the bees, swaying in breeze, scent the air. The orange absolut carries the glorious energy of joy and abundance.
Fields of blue lavender, thyme, orange blossoms, and sunflowers following the golden sun, ancient olive trees, the sky that turns pink as it touches the azure of the Mediterranean and amorous nights drenched in jasmine.
Overall, the evolution of Shalini Paradis Provence takes a rather therapeutic character: its intense, highly energizing opening awakens body and mind, moving then on slowly towards cleansing, relaxing and soothing the wearer.
Like the three previous fragrances, Paradis Provence, comes in the limited edition Lalique crystal flacon. This time in an iconic design of René Lalique: ‘Deux Fleurs’. René Lalique used the symbol of ‘vesica piscis’ in this exquisite flacon representing the creative life force from which everything begins.
Shalini Paradis Provence will be launching this autumn at select luxury retailers worldwide. Beauty doesn’t come cheap. The parfum is available in a limited edition Lalique crystal flacon for $2700. It is also available in the Cubique glass bottle with a black bulb atomizer for $500.
Come into the beaiutiful world of Shalini.
