Poison Girl is intended for younger lovers of the iconic brand, which comes in a pink bottle in the classic shape of Poison. The new fragrance is announced as a bitter – sweet floral, scandalously delicious, made for rebellious young women, pop – feminists who follow their dreams.

Created by perfumer Francois Demanchy, the composition consists of precious raw ingredients. Sicilian bitter orange leads to the heart of roses, which consists of May rose from Grasse and Damascus rose. Venezuelan tonka bean, sandalwood from Sri Lanka, tolu balm, almond and vanilla end with a warm, oriental sweetness.

I heard a lot of negative things about this fragrance around me. Words like ‘tacky’, ‘boring’, ‘a product made in a few hours’ and ‘aimed at making a quick buck’. -but hè, wasn’t that also with the original Poison in its time?!

Oké, its not the greatest Dior scent to come out in recent years. But please… Don’t blame Dior people. Take a look in the advertisement. No one can say that the Poison line wasn’t unique. This time is GIRL people, not woman! Girls love sweet perfumes, they just labeled the perfume under the name of Dior and then good luck. Always have a look in the advertisement of the perfume you like. They are not incidentally made. What do you think? That a man will smell your rose/floral/whatever perfume and say Oh my god, I want her? It’s a night time perfume, clubbing you know? It means that your skin will come in contact with smoke, alcohol etc. So a strong sweet/almondise perfume combined with smokey clothes will be seductive for a man compared to a classy, more complex perfume that will become awful in this situations. If you want to go to a tea party, friends coffee òr a date, choose a more romantic perfume. So simple. Now something really important.

Christian Dior Poison Girl

The scent is fronted by French – American model and actress Camille Rowe; the tag line is “I am not a girl I am poison”.

The fragrance is available as 30, 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum.

 

 

Dior’s Glowing Gardens

Dior S Beauty9springlook016_visuel

Dior’s makeup collection for the upcoming Spring 2016 is radiant and brimming with elegant, floral colours.

Entitled Glowing Gardens, the suite of beauty products evoke a bouquet of light that evokes the charm and springtime luminosity of gardens in bloom, inspired by the techniques of professional makeup artists and the products they use backstage, like Lip Glow, the Colour Reviver Lip Balm.

springlook16_slideshow_07From the 5 Couleurs palette, Dior Vernis, to the new Diorshow Colour & Contour eyeshadow-liner duo, this season’s makeup is fresh, joyous and profoundly Dior.

This spring, Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Makeup, reinterprets the art of a gorgeous glow with a luminous makeup collection that teams new Backstage Pros essentials with eyeshadows and lipsticks in colours inspired by the flower gardens of Granville.

The makeup designed by Peter Philips for this season is an alliance of pastels tones and light and luminous textures. To create a perfect glow, Dior Addict Lip Glow Pomade lends delicate shine to lips, before they are then subtly enhanced using Dior Addict Lip Glow Lilac which reacts to the skin’s pH, causing them to pinken naturally. Diorblush Glowing Gardens gives cheekbones a light pearlized shimmer to highlight the natural skin tone and mirror the eyes. Then to make eyes sparkle and optimise the freshness of the look, Dior Addict It-Lash Platine mascara lengthens and intensifies lashes, giving them an iridescent shine. Makeup has witnessed an influx of color. The shades of the 5 Couleurs Glowing Garden palette which come in sky blue, peach and pearl gray for Blue Garden or in pink, iridescent brown, anise and pale yellow for Rose Garden – are applied as a gentle cloud on the eyelids. They make reference to the colors of the garden at Granville where Christian Dior grew up, and which can be found right down to fingertips accented with Dior Vernis in blue or soft green, pink or peony red.

Artist Edition of Dior’s J’adore L’Absolu

christian-dior-jadore

Dior: “A magical name that blends the words God (Dieu) and gold (or)”, said Jean Cocteau to qualify Christian Dior’s last name.

Christian Dior loved gold, festive and luxurious, and incorporated it in his creations. Today, gold still has a privileged place in the Maison and Parfums Christian Dior pays tribute to this iconic color.​

A special hand made edition of Christian Dior’s J’adore L’absolu will be launched. With a flacon to fit the exceptional contents, the new look of the fragrance has been made public by Delphine Arnault, member of the board of directors of LVMH, and world-renowned French artist Jean-Michel Othoniel.

Inspired by the Kayan Lahwi tribes, the flacon flaunts thin gold lines in the shape of a necklace. The look comes from the tribe’s women’s tradition of individualizing themselves by elongating their necks by the use of neck coils stacked upon each other.

Jean-Michel Othoniel came up with a fascinating way of expressing a woman’s freedom to wear whatever she pleases. The loosened constraints of the necklace, featured on the flacon in the shape of an unraveling glass thread, symbolize lack of limits, love of life and infinity.

diors-jadore-labsolu-by-jean-michel-othoniel-9

Othoniel’s Artist Edition is limited to only 300 pieces and is available at the price of $3,500.

Each flacon that will be made is going to be truly unique, as it will be hand-made by the famous glassmakers of Murano. Gold leaf flecks will be melted into the molten glass of the bead and the wire that adorn the flacon. The symbolism and beauty of the flacon makes it a veritable jewel, precious and able to make a statement, as the designer himself said.

With Indian tuberose, Damask rose and Arabian Jasmine, the scent of the fragrance is floral, sensual and intense. The three hundred of the Othoniel’s Artist Edition handblown Murano glass flacons are available world-wide can be acquired for $3,500 (which also includes three 15-milliliter refills).
