Created by Christophe Raynaud, the composition of Missoni Wave offers a bursting freshness of citruses and a sea note splash at the opening, leading us to a well-nuanced heart of aromatic herbs, which plays on contrasts of piquant, calm, and spicy accords. The base offers a masculine yet sensual hint of woods combined with blue vanilla orchid.

JOOP-WOW-Campaign.jpg

JOOP! WOW! Bottle

The German fashion house has even gone to the lengths of having a short film / ad made by Olivier Dahan which encapsulates the raw, wild man spirit that lives in us all, behind the charming smile and expensive tuxedo.

Discover the new TV campaign starring Swann de Falco and directed by Olivier Dahan, renowned for his oscar-winning film La Vie en Rose.

It also looks a bit like they borrowed some perfume marketing advice from Anchorman, but I’ll let you be the judge of that. Despite what your film critic sensibilities may think, we like this one and think that you will too.

Joop! Wow! is availble as 40, 60 and 100ml Eau de Toilette in a wiskey-like flacon with an accompanying body care line.

Tribute to the English spirit: Penhaligon’s Portrait Collection

 

gif2

Penhaligon’s presented their new Portrait Collection. The new line which includes four fragrances with such dramatic names: The Tragedy of Lord George, The Revenge of Lady Blanche, Much Ado About The Duke and The Coveted Duchess Rose is a tribute to the English spirit; between establishment, humour and provocation. In fact… it reveals the secrets of the British aristocracy.

Penhaligon’s The Tragedy of Lord George (for men)

 

penhaligons-portraits5-768x480

Lord George is a wealthy and respected man, the archetypal patriarch. He seems to embody the noblest values of the aristocracy: virtue, respect, loyalty and faithfulness.

Deceptively traditional Lord George. Lord George is a perfect reminder that one should be aware of appearances. He himself maintains that one should never be able to divine what a man is thinking. This ability being, of course, the key to a happy marriage. Honourable, to a tee, his fidelity to King and Country is resolute. His penchant for muttering ‘the flesh is weak’ over the breakfast kippers is entirely without explanation.

Top notes: Brandy
Heart notes: Shaving soap
Base notes: Tonka Bean

His fragrance reflects his essence; seemingly traditional, yet with hidden secrets. A woody amber fougère from perfumer Alberto Morillas, with rum, tonka bean and ambrox.

 

Penhaligon’s The Revenge of Lady Blanche (for women)

 

penhaligons-portraits4-768x452

A darling of London Society, and one of the most influential ladies in Britain. Her aloof beauty, mysterious past and blazing passions are scrutinised by all from shop-girls to Royalty. She would do anything to climb the social ladder still further. Her latest scheme is to poison her husband, Lord George, inheriting his wealth and burying his secrets for ever!

Lady Blanche is a picture of devotion, charm – and criminal intentions. A social butterfly with a dangerous bite one might say. Shakespeare did try to warn us ‘hell hath no fury like a woman scorned’. Indeed, a woman does always know. Lady Blanche wishes, oh how she wishes! that she did not. The real crime you see is the inelegance of not having kept all of this where it belongs – in the dark, with the lights off! (Cross her at your peril).

Top notes: Powdery orris
Heart notes: Narcissus flower
Base notes: Hyacinth

Her fragrance reflects her very essence. A green floral narcotic, created by perfumer Daphné Bugey. – Charmingly dangerous.

 

Penhaligon’s The Coveted Duchess Rose (for women)

 

Penhaligons-Portraits3-768x458.jpg

Daughter of Lady Blanche and Lord George, Rose married a Duke to escape the stifling rigidity of her family and to become the Coveted Duchess Rose. At first, naively romantic, she has now become disillusioned and frustrated in an unsatisfactory marriage.

A fresh, sweet Rose – ready for the picking. Ever since her recent marriage (anything but a bed of roses) our demure Duchess is urgently desirous of desire. Her bosom is aching for release from the corsets of Victorian life, she dreams of nothing but Paradise Regained, again and again. When one’s husband is at the theatre every evening, one does become terribly bored…

Top notes: Mandarin
Heart notes: Rose
Base notes: Musky wood

Always looking for fun and frivolity (and perhaps love affairs), her fragrance is a not so innocent fresh rose. A woody rose from perfumer Christophe Raynaud.

 

Penhaligon’s Much Ado About The Duke (for men)

 

penhaligons-portraits1-768x445

Conforming to the expectations of his class, Duke Nelson married the most coveted girl in London: the Duchess Rose. Yet the Duke is eccentric and unusual, his whimsical airs set society tongues wagging. Rumours abound that his marriage is yet to be consummated!

Who could say if it was the evenings spent at the theatre that gave the Duke his ravishing, ravished air. A slight perfume of intrigue engulfs him nevertheless. Exquisitely ubiquitous, a decadent dandy, an utterly charming chap, virulently ambivalent, a thoroughly ambiguous first son-in-law – hearts throb wherever he goes, but not the ones you might think. His wife agrees that the theatre is no place for a Duchess. Sometimes she longs not to be a Duchess…

Top notes: Peppery rose
Heart notes: Gin
Base notes: Leathery wood

His perfume is as ambivalent as he is: a floral yet masculine woody fragrance. A spicy woody rose from perfumer Daphné Bugey, with rose, gin and cumin.
