Chopard Casmir

Yesterday I saw old friend Annelore and we talked about fragrances and our favorits. Hers was Chopards Casmir. In the 90’s a true bestseller, and even now it has many ver loyal fans.

Mysteriously and exotic. Chopard’s Casmir Eau de Parfum is an oriental vanilla fragrance for women. Chopard Casmir is a perfume that is named after Chopard’s famous Casmir jewel range and inspired on the lotus flower. The lotus flower is seen in India as a symbol of strength, virtue and abundance.

Chopard Casmir is lush, rich and warm and it kidnaps you into the far, mysterious world of the Orients. The nose behind this fragrance is Michel Almairac, and it was launched in 1992.

One of my most loved perfumes of all time and one that I never get tired of. Fits my personality like no other. Love it love it love it.

Casmir is a very warm, fluffy vanilla fragrance. The refine sensual base note with the esssences vanilla, musk and amber. lends its long continuing, harmonious smell to the parfum. Casmir Eau de Parfum presented in a beautiful refined bottle in form of an eastern palace with a golden roof catch.

The not seizable fruity head note introduces the heart note, which consists of a chord of white exotic flowers such as jasmine, rose and ylang ylang. In every level it reminds me of my travels through India where you can smell the most fantasics scents on almost every corner.

And I do have to mention the body products about this one because it is one of the few that are true to scent, and believe me, once you have tried the shower gel and the body lotion, you will search the earth for them (sadly, they are so hard to find!). The body cream is simply to die for, it’s so good! It treats even the dryest skin perfectly, whole day! And then that scent…. heavenly!

Notice: I can’t say it enough times (so I’ll do it again): Using this fragrance like this, spray it on your skin from a 25 – 30 cm distance! Give it a little air. Don’t spray it from to close. Otherwise it can take up to 4 hours before it smells like it should smell… In those 4 hours, a lot happens, mostly not positive… Using it in the right way, and it’s perfect!

Using the shower gel, put a little in your handpalms, warm it up, and spread it over your ‘wet’ body… and let the magic happen.

Use the bodylotion or bodycream, instead of your other bodycare. It treats your skin more then perfect. They also have a very good concentrate of perfume, so most people who are using the bodycare, spray a little Eau de Parfum at the end of the day for the evening…

Amira D’Amour Happy Spirit by Chopard

happy-spirit-amira-damour

The last rays of light caress the golden dunes. The sky is melting into a velvet curtain of deep purple. Night slowly descends on the desert and a soft breeze brushes against her skin, arousing a shiver of anticipation down her spine.

Scented with the sweet flowers and honey, the wind is full of untold promises, carrying a stirring feeling of joy and delight. It speaks of a romantic meeting still to come, of the melding of two hearts. It calls to her, whispering her secret name, Amira…

Amira D’Amour Happy Spirit, Chopard’s new Eau de Parfum, is a celebration of everlasting love. This rich and sophisticated scent was conceived as a distillation of emotions, an intense concentrate of passion. A luminous ode to romance, it weaves a spell of tenderness and desire. It’s an is an invitation to surrender to the magic of this moment, somewhere between the mesmerizing golden light of reality and the purple depth of your most secret dreams.

Master perfumer Jean-Christophe Hérault (IFF) blended the most exquisite essences into a refined love potion, a unique woody floriental scent. The opening note of pink pepper is a piquant attention-catcher, bound to captivate the senses. It offers a perfect prelude and contrast to the accord of Jasmine absolute and Orange Blossom that follows.

This delightful flowery combination brings a dimension of opulence, an entrancing sense of seduction and femininity. Rich dry-down notes of warm honey and velvety Tonka bean prolong this sensual odyssey, leaving behind a lingering trail of sheer voluptuousness.

Chopard Amira D’Amour Happy Spirit Eau de parfum, 75ml

Amira D’Amour Happy Spirit’s bottle is a tribute to Chopard’s jewelry-making tradition and know-how. Conceived by Patrick Veillet, it perfectly symbolizes what Amira d’Amour is about. Shaped as two interlocking hearts, the unique flacon is made of heavy glass. Its vibrant, intense purple tint evokes the fragrance’s nocturnal sensuality.

The matching faceted stones on the stopper were inspired by the shape of a Chopard Toi et Moi ring. Their velvety depths are artfully emphasized by the surrounding golden band, a symbol of eternal love.

The folding box echoes this colour code through the delicate lace of oriental pattern. The traditional lattice-work motive alludes to the fragrance’s oriental inspiration. Wrapped in a purple-bordered gold ribbon, it provides an ideal case for Amira D’Amour Happy Spirit’s enchanting flacon.

 

Chopard 1000 Miglia Extreme: the longer the road, the deeper the pleasure

Chopard 1000 Miglia ad2.jpg

Since 1988, the house of Chopard has been a partner to the Mille Migla prestigious Italian race of vintage cars. 14 years ago, for this occasion, Chopard had launched a watch collection of the same name, that is still vèry populair. Then in 2013 it was time for the 1000 Miglia masculine fragrance…. And now there is 1000 Miglia Extreme!

More than a mere race, the Mille Miglia is a ritual gathering that brings together car aficionados from all over the world. On scenic roads winding through the most breathtaking Italian landscapes, they celebrate a common passion for these classic vehicles that combine technical precision, mechanical performance and timeless elegance.

Precision, performance and elegance have always been cardinal virtues for a watchmaker like Chopard. And since 1988, the company has supported the Mille Miglia race, celebrating each meeting through a limited edition ‘Mille Miglia’ watch. Last year, Chopard launched the Chopard 1000 Miglia perfume, a seductive and sophisticated fragrance that reflected the spirit of this unique event.

The new Chopard 1000 Miglia Extreme is inspired by the tension of the race, the feeling of speed and the rush of adrenaline. It reflects all the intensity and excitement of the competition. Chopard 1000 Miglia Extreme was designed for daring men who are not afraid to take risks – calculated risks. For winning such a race is both a matter of self-confidence and perfect mastery. It requires all the concentration and ability of a consummate pilot to remain in the zone, to find this delicate balance between abandon and control. It is the most exhilarating feeling.

Chopard 1000 Miglia ad

It takes a very specific mindset to appreciate this kind of tension and thrive on it. Chopard 1000 Miglia Extreme was conceived for such free spirits. It is an ode to this dizzying sensation of speed, thrill and liberty. Chopard 1000 Miglia Extreme is a vibrant and addictive woody oriental. To convey the sudden rush of adrenaline experienced during a car race, Bruno Jovanovic (IFF) created a striking contrast between a fresh and vivifying floral top note of lavender and a powerful base note of leather. It perfectly symbolizes the mix of extreme intensity and unwavering assurance that characterizes a good pilot.

Top: Lavender
Heart: Asphalt accord
Base: Leather, Cedar wood

This unique olfactory effect is sustained by a strong heart chord composed of Chopard 1000 Miglia’s iconic asphalt accord facetted with precious cedar wood. Combining a rich and smoky evocation of the road and the timeless elegance of cedar, this blend is totally in synchronization with the fragrance’s universe.

Chopard 1000 Miglia Extreme’s appearance is a tribute to the automobile and watchmaking savoir faire. Underlining the intensity of this fragrance, the bottle is uniformly black. Its lacquered mat finish is a token of sobriety and elegance. The black rubber cap is reminiscent both of the Mille Miglia watch bracelet and of the Dunlop tire that inspired it. As for the red lines that appear on the flacon and the black outer box, they imitate those found on the race cars’ crew stickers.

Precious Chopard Oud Malaki

Chopard Oud Malaki 1

In 2012, the world-renowned jeweller and watchmaker Chopard launched a new fragrance designed to celebrate the fertile meeting of western craftsmanship and eastern inspiration. Based on the noblest components, this perfume was called Malaki, from the Arabic word signifying ‘royal’. And Chopard Oud Malaki soon became a symbol of elegance and refinement. Oud Malaki means ‘Royal Oud’ in Arabic, a fitting name for the most luxurious interpretation of this noble accord. To give it the greatest possible balance and radiance, Chopard has collaborated with French master perfumer Dominique Ropion, who has signed countless bestsellers and is renowned for the meticulous care he takes in crafting his formulas.

The idea was to create a mastered and precise construction around beautiful qualities of materials. It could be compared to the extreme quality and the attention to details brought into Chopard’s products.

Dominique Ropion

His interpretation of the note, he adds, ‘offers a more refined, structured and complex sensuality than traditional oud fragrances’. Oud Malaki opens with luminous and aromatic top notes. The sunny burst of grapefruit, the cleanliness of lavender and the slight herbal bitterness of artemisia contrast with the addictive smoothness of heart notes, a warm accord of tobacco and spices with leather undertones. To enhance the most elegant facets of this oud accord, its deep, liqueur-like sensuousness is conjured with a vibrant accord of dark woods and suave ambergris. These upscale ingredients are reflected by the rich amber colour of the juice.

Powerful, seductive and passionately masculine, this connoisseur’s blend expresses the sensual personality of the Oud Malaki man, a lover of life’s finer pleasures and of beautiful objects. To showcase his regal scent, the precious glass bottle is adorned with a gold cap reprising the codes of the Chopard watch universe.
