The Paris designer, famous for his red-soled shoes, unveiled three new scents this week.
In 2014, famous shoemaker Christian Louboutin stepped into the beauty space, launching vibrant nail lacquers inspired by the scarlet soles of his famous shoes. His beauty line then expanded to include super-luxe lip sticks and glosses. And now, Louboutin is fully plunging into the fragrance world, launching three scents at once to make a major splash.
“I want to give women the means to express themselves and to delight in their femininity”, says Christian Louboutin and so he does. He never misses the chance to celebrate women and their desire in everything he creates and his three newly launched fragrances are no exception. Whether you choose Bikini Questa Sera, Tornade Blonde or Trouble in Heaven, they are all irresistibly feminine.
Christian Louboutin testing out fragrances.
To portray these olfactory marvels, he tapped the one and only model, actress and film director Elisa Sednaoui. “For me Elisa is one woman who is many women”, he explains adding: “I needed someone close to me, someone capable of expressing the many nuances of the fragrances”.
Christian Louboutin working with designer Thomas Heatherwick on concepts for the fragrance bottle.
And it shouldn’t surprise you that the design of the bottles was as important to the shoe designer as the scents themselves;
Color was fundamental to the bottle design; each fragrance has its own symbolic colorway.
He worked with designer Thomas Heatherwick of Heatherwick Studios — the brains behind the cauldron for the 2012 Olympics and buildings in Singapore and Cape Town — to create the beautiful sculptural glass bottles.
The scents come in a hypnotizing bottle worthy of an objet d’art. Created in collaboration with Heatherwick Studio, the undulating glass bottle captures the light to reveal the vivid colors of each fragrance.
Christian Louboutin Bikini Questa Sera,
Each of the three Christian Louboutin perfume is different from the others, but they are all United by the same idea behind their development. Christian Louboutin Bikini Questa Sera is an intense scent, heat inspired by sunset Egypt, showing notes of jasmine and Tuberose and came to be arrested in the fire-Golden warm yellow and resembles a bottle that mimic the Sun.
Christian Louboutin Tornade Blonde,
Tornade Blonde is the golden light and luminosity that a woman leaves a man she hypnotized with. More than being a fragrance, it is a state of mind that puts together gorgeous red rose, sweet violet and cassis. The bottle reflects its iridescence through a combination of warm garnet and light gold.
Christian Louboutin Trouble in Heaven,
Trouble in Heaven is a fragrance that lights the fire. Mysterious and sexy, for the woman who wants to provoke and is at ease with her provocation. It is both intimate and overt, an intoxicating fragrance to wear close to you, to be loved by others. A second skin of perfect iris, patchouli and tonka absolut, resonates with the dry heat of oriental amber, makes Trouble in Heaven.
It should also not surprise you that, like the shoes, the fragrances don’t come cheap. But if you’ve got $275 and want to make your vanity that much more fancy, the three fragrances are available now on ChristianLouboutin.com.
