Liam Payne stars in Hugo Now fragrance campaign


A new fragrant adventure is awaiting us with the newest Hugo Now edition launched at the beginning of 2020; a limited edition inspired by the power of Now! The scent is a symbol of this free-spirited and young-at-heart attitude, and Hugo partners with artist Liam Payne to inspire his peers to seize the only moment they own: Now. #MyTimeIsNow

Hugo Now follows the success of the Hugo line started in 1995 with the pillar of the collection: Hugo The collection grew over the years, offering various flankers, limited editions and art editions, of which we’ll mention Hugo Iced, Hugo Reversed, Hugo Urban Journey. The newest creation is presented and created under the license of Coty, while being signed by perfumer Frank Voelkl.


This Aromatic Watery fragrance opens with a hit of Cardamom, a spicy and fusing note combined with the biting energy of Lemon zest, bringing light and freshness to the composition. This cutting-edge freshness carries through to the heart, softened by the aromatic notes of Lavender and paired with the cooling sensation of Mint and watery Aquozone, a frozen accord providing a cold aquatic freshness. It’s a fresh, masculine dose of confidence to seize your moment, now! At the base are the elegant notes of Haitian Vetiver, both rough and soft, cold and warm, earthy and smooth for an urban masculinity. The olfactive composition of Hugo Now encourages those who wear it to discover the unknown, now! Because Now is the only time.”

Jason Wu’s first fragrance


From New York Fashion Week to creating a signature Pantone colour, Jason Wu is now entering the olfactory world with a new must-have scent.

Taiwanese fashion designer Jason Wu is set to start a new journey in the olfactory industry with the launch of his first Eau de Parfum.

This project is so close to my heart and I am so excited to finally share this. The key ingredient is the rare jasmine sambac — it’s a smell I remember from my childhood in Taiwan when I used to pick them from a neighbour’s wall full of these flowers.

Available this fall, the namesake fragrance bottles Wu’s creative vision into the ultimate scent with blossoming notes of jasmine sambac, peonies and lilies – a reoccurring floral theme which is also seen in the designer’s ready-to-wear collections, was created by Frank Voelkl (of Firmenich) with Parlux.


The bottle, co-created with architect Andre Mellone, is similar to Wu’s Fragrance Box Clutch, first captured at the 10th year anniversary, Fall 2017, runway show in the shape of a fragrance clutch.

The Eau de Parfum will come in two sizes and will also be accompanied by shower oil and body cream, both perfect for – vèry – dry skins, wrapped in beautiful bottles.


The new scent is set to be fronted by American model Lily Aldridge, who also wore a custom-made Jason Wu dress – in the hue of the fragrance – to the 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards  earlier this year. 

The fragrance will be availble exclusive at Saks Fifth Avenue for three months starting August 17th, and for the same period in Hudson Bay starting August 23rd. Then Jason Wu’s debut fragrance will be available at other leading beauty counters.
