Givenchy-L'Interdit-Banner-1

Created by Hubert de Givenchy in 1957 as a tribute to Audrey Hepburn, L’Interdit has been reinvented in 2018. An addictive composition with bright luminosity infused by ‘black’ notes, this bold new perfume is an invitation to cross the line and elegantly embrace individuality.

Forbid yourself nothing. Allow no rules. An invitation to defy convention and embrace your singularity.

Givenchy L’Interdit celebrates the story of an exceptional friendship, that between trendsetting fashion designer Hubert de Givenchy and his muse, actress Audrey Hepburn, a symbol of elegance and audacity. More than 60 years after the original creation, Parfums Givenchy writes a new chapter for this iconic fragrance with a resolutely modern Eau de Parfum.

Givenchy-L'Interdit-Banner-2

French maison Givenchy re-launches its iconic L’Interdit perfume for women with a new modern version and with a more calmed and sensual aroma. The original Givenchy L’Interdit perfume was launched in 1957 and got its inspiration from one of the beautiful women of all times, Audrey Hepburn.

An homage to the original L’Interdit from 1957. This new version is a tribute to bold femininity. An invitation to defy convention and embrace your singularity. A white floral cut through with dark notes unleashing a bold luminosity that flirts with obscurity. The shocking side of chic.

The fruit of a collaboration between master perfumers Dominique Ropion, Anne Flipo and Fanny Bal, L’Interdit is a subtle play of contrasts – orange blossom, jasmine and tuberose are paired with vetiver and patchouli – to better deploy its intense notes and underline the emancipating force of the fragrance.

Top notes: Strawberry
Heart notes: Freesia, Jasmine, Violet,  Bulgarian rose, Sunflower, Ylang-Ylang
Base notes: Sandalwood, Musk, Incense

It is a very feminine and very softly/floral perfume for women with a touch of French vibe. Givenchy L’Interdit is a classic, powdery and romantic fragrance with hints of spicy notes, but not overwhelming. Both timeless and innovative, the new L’Interdit bottle is a tribute to the 1957 flacon.

Hapiness bottled: Jo Malone Honeysuckle & Davana

 

Jo-Malone-Honeysuckle-&-Davana-Banner3.jpg

Sadly, the summer is coming to its end, but many perfume brands still create warm, hot, sunny/florescent perfumes to prolong us more in the summer. This late summer days, Jo Malone releases a new unisex perfume Honeysuckle & Davana.

Jo Malone Honeysuckle & Davana is based on honeysuckle, composed in a different way from the predecessor Honeysuckle & Jasmine from 1999, again dealing with the sweet honeyed aroma of this lovely flower and the wild nature of England.

Jo-Malone-Honeysuckle-&-Davana-Banner4

Honeysuckle is a quintessential English flower, and it’s not a flower we talk about a lot in perfumery. In England, it’s very rare to not have a story about honeysuckle. It always brings you back to a happy moment. It grows wild and almost surprises you. With a rose, you go to smell it in your garden. With honeysuckle it surprises you on your walk.

It was very important for me to capture the bucolic feeling – that pleasant feeling of countryside life – as well as all the facets of the honeysuckle flower. Honeysuckle is a complex, particular flower, there are a lot of facets, and it’s the creamy, addictive part of the honeysuckle that we use.

Anne Flipo

The sunny creation of Honeysuckle & Davana is based on a floral theme, sweetened with a vibrant, fruit-green aroma.

Jo-Malone-Honeysuckle-&-Davana-Banner5

Jo Malone Honeysuckle & Davana is a happy new floral, winding through the English countryside. Created by perfumer Anne Flipo, Jo Malone Honeysuckle & Davana in its opening seduces with the green an fruity sweetness of davana which leads to fresh roses and wild honeysuckle layeredon an accord of moss.

Jo-Malone-Honeysuckle-&-Davana-Notes

Climbing. Twisting. Ever more alluring after dark. Fresh with rose and the aromatic, fruity twist of davana. Woody with moss. Warmed by sunshine. Davana is a green plant with hints of liquorice that brings vibrancy to the fragrance and a touch of a fruity note. English honeysuckle, with a radiant floralcy, brings a rich character to the heart of the fragrance. Evocative of undergrowth damp with fresh rain, the verdance of moss cushions the base of the fragrance in earthy, woody warmth.

Happiness bottled. Jo Malone Honeysuckle & Davana is available as 30 and 100ml Cologne along a 200gr. perfumed candle.

Paco Rabanne has launched Pure XS, a new flanker to 1993′s XS. In 1993, the XS fragrance paved the way and claimed sexual desire, free of taboos. Now, Pure XS announces the comeback of sex, or rather eroticism. With excess in its very genes.

Paco Rabanne Pure XS is fantasy embodied by an excessively perfect and perfectly indecent man. An unattainable heir who oozes sex and desire. Pure XS is excess in its pure state, implicit, explicit and pure fantasy. Pure XS is the duality of a man with a noble upbringing and sexual power. He merges decency and daring, vice and virtue with magnetic results.

The creator of the fragrance, Master Perfumer Anne Flipo, was surprised to notice on a business trip to Shanghai that, amongst all the tall buildings, the city was filled with large green open spaces, and in early March the pure white daisy clusters of the Magnolia trees perfumed the air with their soft, crisp, petal fragrance. At that moment, the concept of Star Magnolia was born.
