Azzaro Chrome Aqua

Azzaro-Chrome-Aqua-Visual

Some designer fragrances are standards, but can fall out of favor. Our friends and fathers wore them and perhaps we did as well. In 1996 Azzaro Chrome was a favorite of many men. Azzaro has been the base of many flankers over the years, but Azzaro Chrome Acqua is the fragrance to own if you want to rediscover modern aquatics.

Waves crash against the rocks. An aromatic freshness fills the air, the breeze caresses the foam… The call of the sea leads Chrome Aqua to take the plunge.

The new chapter of the Chrome saga evokes the Mediterranean with a brand new aromatic freshness. Chrome Aqua is presented as a smoother version, a new vibration, such as one that’s reminiscent of a pure breeze mixed with sea foam. The scent is a citrus aromatic woody fragrance, created by perfumer Jean-Christophe Herault.

Azzaro Chrome Aqua reveals the legendary freshness of Chrome with a new interpretation that reflects lively aromatic notes and aquatic freshness through three main accords:

Dawn – grapefruit paired with green apple and violet leaf.
Zenith – essential oil of basil and spearmint enhances aromatic marine notes.
Dusk- woody texture of vetiver essential oil and cypress add a bold and masculine signature and strengthens the citrus character of the fragrance.

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.

 

Karl Lagerfeld reveals details of upcoming fragrances

karl_model_duo_adv_065

Yakymour previously highlighted that Karl Lagerfeld had far more up his sleeve than fashion design, when we reported that the creative genius is set to release perfumes for both men and women in March. Now we can reveal the advertising campaign as well as details of the fragrances themselves.

Two of Karl’s favourite models, Kati Neischer and Baptiste Giabiconi, have been used to front the campaign telling a story of desire, irresistible attraction, magnetism, sensuality, between a seductive rock-and-roll duo. A renowned photographer, Karl shot the campaign, which he imagined in black and white, himself.

In the photos, Kati and Baptiste are shown embracing, their torsos bare and bodies becoming one, with Kati clinging to Baptiste with hands wearing studded gloves, exactly like the ones that Karl is never seen without.

I love perfume. I have worked with fragrances in the past and I’m thrilled to be launching new ones again today. I love women’s fragrances and I love men’s fragrances. They make life more beautiful. Perfume is like fashion for the nose…

Karl Lagerfeld

The scents are distinguished by the wake they leave behind, by their bottles, and by the images that embody them; with Karl’s signature being evident in the use only of high-quality raw materials, the use of black and white in the elegance of the design, the modernity of the metal used in the design, the aesthetic of the bottle’s body, and the fragrances’ attractiveness to men and women alike.

Karl is the edgiest designer in fashion and his two new fragrances echo this while conveying sophisticated elegance and classicism with a bold, modern twist.

Karl_Model_Women_ADV_065.indd

Karl Lagerfeld Eau de Parfum for Women is an elegent green floral, the creation of perfumers Christine Nagel and Serge Majoullier. The fragrance thrives on contrasts, opening with a burst of fresh lemon, enhanced by a velvety peach before flourishing into a full bouquet of roses, immaculate magnolias, and plumeria. Karl Lagerfeld Eau de Parfum for Women takes a contemporary approach to traditional perfumes (another signature in Karl’s fashions) with the addition of musks and powerful, dark, ambery woody notes in the base.

Karl_Model_Men_ADV_065.indd

Karl Lagerfeld Eau de Toilette for Men is a timeless, ultra modern aromatic, a creation of perfumer Jean-Christophe Hérault.  Featuring lavender and mandarin zest enhanced by crispy apple and violet leaves Karl Lagerfeld Eau de Toilette for Men is alluring and sensual. The scent ends with the woody, spicy notes of sandalwood and an amber blend, giving the fragrance a vibrant and elegant feel.

The bottle’s aesthetic is both high-tech and classic. I think now is the right time for it. A touch of high tech and a touch of classic glass for an exquisitely-formed bottle.

Karl Lagerfeld

Karl desired a perfume bottle that was a work of robust, streamlined art. The clear glass used for the women’s eau de parfum and the black glass bottle used for the men’s eau de toilette are both geometrically exact and feature Karl’s name stamped on the side in silver letters. This symmetry is only interrupted by graphic beveling at the base of the bottles. Like the collar of Karl’s favorite shirts, a large metal ring sits beneath the caps, which are engraved with the designer’s iconic silhouette. The etched steel ring is a nod to the brand’s accessories.

A dazzling fusion of organic and mineral, of freshness and depth.
An astounding blast of green energy, the creation of the ultimate green fragrance, Amazingreen.

Comme des Garçons Amazingreen is created by perfumer Jean-Christophe Hérault as a modern and daily fragrance with a nice aroma that is not over intense nor too freshly. It blends palm tree leaves, green pepper, dew mist, jungle leaves, ivy leaves, orris, coriander, silex, gunpowder accord, vetiver, smoke and white musk.

Comme des Garcons Amazingreen Video

This ‘blast of green energy’ starts out cool as a tropical shower from bouncing shiny leaves the size of umbrellas. Moves on to a slightly sulfurous gunpowder accord (think of how the air smells after fireworks) as guerillas skulk through the undergrowth. Is that something burning? The ice-cold sear of green pepper on the tongue, the wisps of smoke of a campfire in a secret clearing…

Tough and lush, exuberant but slightly dangerous, the vegetal and mineral elements unfurl their various facets side by side. Trouble’s clearly brewing in the jungle.

Comme des Garçons Amazingreen will be available as 50 and 100 ml Eau de Toilette.
