Fragrance of love Lancôme Idôle Edition Limitée

Love is ours. Together, we are unstoppable. The classic Idôle smell you love adorned in a beautiful limited edition flacon.

To celebrate Valentine’s Day, Lancôme launches a limited edition flacon of its latest pillar fragrance of the French Maison, Idôle, that won over its audience with the new concept of a tiny flacon and a modern composition that gathers musky, floral, and chypre accords. 

A lot is said about the Idôle flacon. The flacon, designed by architect and industrial designer Chafik Gasmi, is the fitting tribute to the industry’s technical advances and innovations. The Idôle flacon being arguably one of the slimmest in the world at just 15mm thick. The same flacon is now decorated with shiny rose gold letters sharing the important message of love, encouragement, communion, and determination to the future goals in front of all of us.

Three women perfumers from three continents – Adriana Medina-Beaz, Nadege le Garlantezec and Shyamala Maisondue – have joined forces to create this unique fragrance of rose, jasmine, and chypre. Together, they created a universal fragrance. Idôle Limited Edition repeats the same formula of the original edition from 2019. The fragrance is described as clean and luminous, with ingredients from a sustainable sector.

Top: pear and bergamot
Heart: Turkish rose, May rose, Indian jasmine
Base: chypre accord, white musk, vanilla

Championing the power of love, Lancôme’s Idôle Eau de Parfum inspires you to be just that – your own idol. Marrying fresh top notes of pear and bergamot with the sensual and feminine rose that sits at the heart of the fragrance, the scent is at once romantic and full of life. Petals are blended with musk for a sophisticated chypre accord that envelops the skin in a lingering blanket of confidence.

Lancôme Idôle Edition Limitée is available in a limited number as 50ml Eau de Parfum at selected stores worldwide. Come into the beautiful world of Lancôme.

Lancôme La Vie Est Belle Soleil Cristal

French Maison Lancôme has expanded its La Vie Et Belle Collection with a new edition that will surely attract the attention of many fans of this popular line. Although it comes as this year’s flanker of the original, it seems to me that this new creation will arouse the desire of many others who have not favored the La Vie Est Belle line so far. The composition is different, a little less sweet, and more exotic and subtly powdery.

The radiance of the sun has been captured within Lancôme’s newest launch of 2021. La Vie Est Belle Soleil Cristal truly welcomes in the Spring/Summer season; a dazzling, solar energy, illuminating happiness. 

Lancôme La Vie Est Belle Soleil Cristal will offer juicy notes of mandarin oil and its solar sweetness mixed with bergamot and bright pink pepper in the opening. The goal is to emphasize the tropical flowers of ylang-ylang in the heart, which is embraced within white jasmine and orange blossoms, sprinkled with a delicate powdery veil. A flirtation  between fine elegance and mild exoticism is achieved by adding a blend of vanilla and coconut at the base, deepened by the warmth and earthy shade of patchouli.

Housed in the iconic La Vie Est Belle flacon, in you hand, the La Vie Est Belle Soleil Cristal perfume flacon reveals its infinite holographic shades, like a crystal enchanted by the light that passes through it. From its warm golden heart to the tip of its iridescent wings, light radiates from the perfume flacon like a halo of happiness. The flacon is a physical depiction of the name, Soleil Cristal.  

Lancôme La Vie Est Belle Soleil Cristal is available as 50 and 100ml Eau de Parfum at selected stores worldwide. Come into the beautiful world of Lancôme.

Iconic Ô de Lancôme

 

 

o_de_lancome_visual-min.png

French Maison Lancôme was founded in 1935 by Armand Petitjean, a former coty employee. The company’s name was inspired by the ruins of a castle, Le Chateau de Lacosme, and the Maison’s rose symbol was inspired by the roses that surround it.

Lancôme orginated as a perfume compagny, launching five fragrances – Bocages, Conquete, Kypre, Tendre Nuit, and Tropiques – in time for the 1935 World’s Fair in Brussels, Belgium. The company later expanded its offerings to include cosmetics and skincare products. Lancôme joined the L’Oréal family in 1964, after which many of their classic and best loved fragrances were created, including Climat (1967), Ô de Lancome (1969), Sikkim (1971), Magie Noire (1978), Trésor (1990), Poême (1995), Miracle (2000), and La Vie est Belle (2012).

Honeysuckle is native to China. This delicate shrub produces small, white jasmine-scented flowers that bloom in late winter or spring. It delivers a sweetly floral scent with jasmine, orange, herbal and honey notes.

Lancôme Advanced Génifique Serum new formula

Lancôme-Advanced-Génifique-Youth-Activating-Concentrate-01.jpg

From next month, Lancôme’s Advanced Génifique Serum will be available in a brand new formula, which is a product of 15 years in microbiome research. The launch of the new serum overlaps with the 10th anniversary of the bestselling original Advanced Génifique, which has sold over 25 million bottles around the world and has over 10,000 five-star reviews! Renowned for its ability to activate 10 key signs of youth, the serum has won more than 170 awards.

A face serum suitable for every woman: all ethnicities, ages, and every skin type – dry, combination/normal and oily.

Now is the time to innovate. According to Lancôme, the microbiome research is the future of skincare. The new formula relies on a groundbreaking discovery of an entire symbiotic living ecosystem of microorganisms in human skin. When the microbiome is balanced, the skin is able to protect itself from pathogenic organisms and environmental hazards. When it is disturbed, the skin’s natural defenses and regenerative qualities are also compromised.

Lancôme-Advanced-Génifique-Youth-Activating-Concentrate-05.jpg

The new Advanced Génifique Serum is formulated with seven prebiotic and probiotic fractions, including sugars, amino acids, and lipids that provide a vital source of nutrients for the good bacteria (prebiotics). It also contains three plant or biotech-based prebiotics: Mannose, α-Glucooligosaccharides and β-Fructooligosaccharides.

The formula specifically targets the microbiome, which is normally compromised by external aggressors, aging, and a stressful lifestyle. The patented self-loading dropper releases 30 million prebiotic and probiotic fractions with each application. The serum is weightless, it absorbs instantly, and delivers immediate results. A new holy grail. This new serum is a powerhouse: patented until 2039.

How tot use: Use it morning and evening after cleansing and before your favourite day and night cream for radiant, healthier-looking and smother skin.

Lancôme-Advanced-Génifique-Youth-Activating-Concentrate-06

Lancôme-Advanced-Génifique-Youth-Activating-Concentrate-04Lancôme’s new Advanced Génifique Serum drops at the end of the August. It will be available in three sizes 30, 50 and 75ml, at selected stores worldwide. Come into the beautiful world of Lancôme.

 

 

 

 

Lancôme Idôle, worlds thinnest perfume

Lancôme-Idôle-Banner-01

French Maison Lancôme was founded in 1935 by Armand Petitjean, a former coty employee. The company’s name was inspired by the ruins of a castle, Le Chateau de Lacosme, and the Maison’s rose symbol was inspired by the roses that surround it.

Lancme-Idle-Banner-01.jpg

A new pillar fragrance from Lancôme always constitutes hot news. Besides the endless flankers of Trésor, Miracle and La Vie est Belle, and the more exclusive line Grand Crus, the brand rarely launches a brand new concept. So, rejoice, all Lancôme fans, for there is a new streak of creativity waiting for you to be discovered. You just have to wait until August 22.

Idôle is a name that was previously used by Lancôme in their makeup line, but also we have seen the same name in a perfume by sister company Armani (2009), not to mention Lubin’s Idole (2005). I don’t like new perfumes who has stolen somebody elses name. Isn’t it ridiculous how Idôle d’Armani flawlessly disappeared and reincarnated in Idôle de Lancôme thanks to L’Oréal marketing machine. It can be compared only with LVMH’s acquiring of Jean Patou with following launch of Joy by Dior like the legendary Joy from Jean Patou never existed. And recent news, it’s turned into Patou now with a new logo, all the history forgotten and ‘brand new start’ for the Maison. No more legacy and more respect, just juggling with names and brands with some hype added.

Lancôme-Idôle-Banner-02

The flacon even has a case designed like a smartphone case! Is Lancôme trying to compete with Paco Rabanne now ? And that image with the text behind the bottle is so very Chanel L’Eau. Let’s see if this Idol defeats all other Idols. We just have to wait a little more than a month to smell it and see what it brings to the game.

Idôle is a modern musky, floral chypre fragrance, created by three female perfumers: Adriana Medina, Nadège Le Garlantezec, and Shyamala Maisondieu. A sustainably sourced Isparta Rose Petal Essence from Turkey exclusively made for Lancôme, along with a Centifolia Rose grown in France, shine among notes of bergamot, accords of pear, India Jasmine Grandiflorum, and a new ‘clean and glow’ accord.

Lancôme-Idôle-Ingredients

As part of L’Oréal’s (who own Lancôme) socially productive purchasing program ‘Solidarity Sourcing’, which supports social inclusion and maintains sustainable, Fairtrade and eco-friendly supply chains. The rose petals, for instance, are harvested by a family-based cooperative with Fairtrade working conditions that helps women employees to be recognised for their contributions. But for such a ‘revolutionary’ perfume, I wish they had used some more unique notes.

Lancôme Idôle, embodied by the new face of the brand, American actress, singer, and fashion authority Zendaya Coleman. Zendaya Coleman has been fighting for women’s rights, WOC inclusion, non-gender-stereotyping and media bullying since 2013, when she ripped apart the role Disney prescribed to her for K.C. Undercover. She insisted her character was socially awkward, smart and skilled in martial arts, instead of miraculously gifted in singing and dancing. She demanded to be a producer and changed the show’s name (from Super Awesome Katy – cringe).

Lancôme-Idôle-Banner-03

I am thrilled to be the face of this new Lancôme fragrance. Idôle is a perfume that has meaning. I like the fact that it’s fresh and light. I am very particular about perfumes, and Idôle smells absolutely beautiful and I love it.

Zendaya Coleman

Since then, she’s been a professional boundary-pusher: on style (hello, Met Gala cyber Cinderella), on stage (her speeches remind young people of their responsibility and power), on social (she’s openly shamed publications that digitally slim down and manipulate her body) and on screen (the majority of her stunts in The Greatest Showman were her own). All this at just 22.

With this scent, Lancôme is another brand that joins the strange trend of making political and feminist statements with just a perfume. Françoise Lehmann, Lancôme Global Brand President, said, “We are excited to be able to create a fragrance for a new generation of women questioning the status quo, breaking free from tradition and re-defining the meaning of success. Collective and beneficial for all women, this new confidence is inciting them to raise the bar a little higher every time. Idôle is a strategic launch for Lancôme and we are delighted to present it with Zendaya to the world”.

Lancôme-Idôle-Flacon-GIF

The Idôle flacon, designed by Algerian architect and industrial designer Chafik Gasmi, is the fitting tribute to the industry’s technical advances and innovations. The Idôle flacon being arguably one of the slimmest in the world at just 15mm thick. is made to lay down flat, not stand up. I bet Lancôme decided that a perfume designed to attract millennials should look like a touchscreen.

I am personally extremely curious about the bottle design and will definitely run to the perfume store to look at it as soon as it arrivés. I already can sense the flankers to come: Idôle Fleurs, Idôle Tendre, Idôle Fraiche, Idôle l’Eau….

Lancme-Idle-Flacons.jpgLancôme Idôle will be available as 25 ml, 50 ml, and 75 ml Eau de Parfum. Like ‘the old days’ Idôle will be accompanied by a perfume fountain – ‘La Recharge’ – to refil the flacons.

Lancôme Idôle will be out in stores starting from August 22nd, 2019. Come into the beautiful world of Lancôme.
