Isabella Rossellini Return to Lancôme

Isabella Rossellini for Lancôme, 2016

After growing up in Italy, Isabella Rossellini, the daughter of international film royalty, came to the United States when she was 19 and studied at Finch College and the New School for Social Research in New York City. Rossellini made her first movie appearance in 1976, with a small part in her mother’s film A Matter of Time. She then appeared in several European TV dramas before her first big-screen starring role in 1979’s The Meadow. Since then she made over 50 other films, including Blue Velvet, Wild at Heart, Big Night and Cousins

Now Isabella Rossellini joins Lancôme as the muse of the French house that has spread its vision of luxurious beauty worldwide. But as we all know, this is not their first collaboration, as it was in 1983 that Lancôme and the Italian-Swedish cinema icon began their journey together. We all remember her on the covers of such magazines as Vogue, Marie Claire, Harper’s Bazaar, Vanity Fair and Elle. And: ..her famous Tresòr ads….

More than three decades after she became its first face, then 31, still three years shy of her star-making turn in David Lynch’s Blue Velvet, Rossellini projected a fierce femininity that’s only grown more sure-footed with time. Her appointment back at the company now, at 63, promises to offer a more expansive definition of beauty, one that’s not limited by age.

I am overwhelmed with emotion to come back to Lancôme. Our collaboration meant so much to me in my life. Continuing it fills me with immense joy and great expectations. I am also well aware that this decision goes well beyond me: it’s a strong indication of Lancôme’s inclusiveness and celebration of all women

Isabella Rossellini.

But then Rossellini has always been a rule breaker in her own right. As a young model and actress, the daughter of Italian neo-realist director Roberto Rossellini and Swedish screen siren Ingrid Bergman seemed determined to shake her legacy and make a unique mark on the industry, thanks in large part to her fearless spirit, which led her to unorthodox roles, and a sharp tongue that spoke candidly on her passion points.

If you look at most beauty advertisements, you would think that makeup is only for beautiful women in their early 20s, but older women like seeing older women in ads, and younger women do, too, because they see them and are not frightened of growing older

Isabella Rossellini

Modern, unique and free of constraints, for fourteen years this inspiring woman has embodied the spirit of the Lancôme woman through her values and at the age of 63, Rossellini is still infallible in reflecting the image of the intelligent, accomplished and beautiful woman.

The Noses: Francis Kurkdjian

Our regular reader, has heard the name ‘Francis Kurkdjian’ sevaral times on Yakymour. He is not only the man behind Elie Saab’s exclusive fragances, but worked also for some prestiges houses like Jean-Paul Gaultier, Lanvin, Carven, Acqua di Parma and Guerlain. But he also opend his own Maison Francis Kurkdjian.

Francis Kurkdjian

Francis Nourhan Kurkdjian was born in Paris, France, in (14 May 1969) to Armenian parents. The Kurkdjian family had at once fled the Ottoman Empire during the Armenian Genoicide and had settled in France after being deported and relocated to Aleppo, Syria. Having been exposed to music and dancing at a young age, Francis Kurkdjian wanted to be a ballet dancer during his youth. However, he failed passing the competition to study at the Paris Opera School of Dance in 1983. Kurkdjian, who already had an interest in perfume making since he was thirteen years old, decided in 1985 to become a perfumer. In 1990, Kurkdjian entered the Institut Supérieur International du Parfum, de la Cosmétique et de l’Aromatique Alimentaire (ISIPCA), a perfume school located in Versailles, France.He graduated from ISIPCA in 1993 and joined Quest International in Paris the same year. Kurkdjian continued his studies and obtained a masters degree from the Paris Institute of Luxury Marketing.

Francis Kurkdjian is one of the most prolific, and acclaimed perfumers of our time. At just 25 years old, Francis created Jean-Paul Gaultier Le Mâle, which remains a global timeless bestseller today; others include Iris Nobile for Acqua di Parma, Lanvin Rumeur, multi-award-winning Elie Saab Le Parfum, and recently, a duo of fragrances for the newly-revived Carven perfume house. Since he first began as a perfumer Francis has been taking risks, delighting our senses, and winning awards, too.

The ‘day job’ of creating some of the world’s best-known fragrances, however, has enabled French-Armenian Francis to fulfil his dream, building one of the most interesting perfume houses around: his signature Maison Francis Kurkdjian. Under his own label, Francis has had absolute freedom to express his boundless creativity through a portfolio of fragrances that range from the most luminous and airy, Cologne Pour Le Matin, with its Sicilian bergamot and lemon, Moroccan thyme and Tunisian orange flower, through to an exploration of oudh’s moods:
OUD Silk Mood (Bulgarian rose, papyrus, chamomile), OUD Cashmere Mood (labdanum, benzoin, vanilla) and OUD Velvet Mood, spiced with cinnamon, saffron and copahu balm, and each tethered by a base of the highest-quality Laotian oudh. Today, there are more than a dozen fragrances in the collection.

But Francis Kurkdjian‘s artistry goes beyond what’s simply in a bottle. He has worked on many artistic projects.  With Sophie Calle, he created ‘the scent of money’ (2003), that of a dollar bill that’s been handled, thumbed, and passed from hand to hand, for one of her exhibitions. He also created fragrance-focused installations for the Foundation Cartier and at Versailles, transforming the fountain in the Orangerie with wafts of orange flower, propelled into the air by jets of water. For the Lille Europe Pavilion party at Shanghai Expo 2010, Francis created bubbles scented with violet, released against the backdrop of a Taoist temple in the very centre of the city. (He is surely the only perfumer to offer scented bubbles in his collection!).

His Parisian flagship store, one of his most famous clients, Catherine Deneuve though Maison Francis Kurkdjian can be found in many of the world’s leading perfumeries… (Click photo to enlarge).

Francis also set about making scented candles for an exhibition of paintings by Jacques Émile-Blanche, a turn-of-the-century French painter, using only the ingredients available at that time, rather than the synthetics that Francis so loves to blend with naturals, a challenge he found pretty fiendish. ‘Synthetic notes are the backbone of a structure, the longer-lasting notes or the steel beams, if you like, in the building you’re making. If you use only natural products, in two hours they will die on your skin and you will have no aura, no power. The chemical acts as a foundation, but you should use the natural notes to wrap around it, making the end result look and smell completely natural, even though it’s not.’ In 2009, as a recognition for his artistry, Francis was awarded one of France’s highest honours ‘Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres’ by the French Ministry of Culture.

I am a Huge fan of Francis Kurkdjian‘s irreverence; who else would offer bottles of scented laundry detergent (albeit a rarefied version, scented with sparkling Sicilian lemon) alongside a limited edition exquisite handmade Louis Crystal bottles to celebrate 10 years of custom-made perfumes: 20 numbered and decorated bottles, capped with platinum or gold? (They’ll set you back $11,000, though just $2,200 for a refill, and are unnamed:  each purchaser can choose the name, which will be engraved upon their bottle…) And yes: if money’s no object (or you can get your hands on at least 15,000 euros), or the Limited Edition (only 5 made) and bottled in a 24k Gold Crystal Flacon by Maison Saint Louis ‘Queen Marie Antoinette Fragrance’. Francis Kurkdjian creates bespoke fragrances, too.

Last year Francis Kurkdjian brought Versailles to the Grand Palais, at the Biennale Des Antiquaires. For those who have visited the Grand Palais, it seemed as though the scents of Versailles had drifted all the way to Paris, but how?

To unravel the mystery, begin by approaching the fountain beneath the glass dome. Somehow, the water gives off the olfactory impression of walks through castle gardens and the Grand Trianon. Now consider the fact that scenting an indoor fountain is a worldwide first, and you might guess (correctly) that the man responsible is master perfumer Francis Kudrkjian. For the 27th edition of the Biennale des Antiquarires, interior designer Jacques Grange paid homage to French gardens, filling the space with flowerbeds and foliage. He left it up to Kurkdjian to translate sight into scent.

(Click photo to enlarge).

I do know this, however: if you venture out to Maison Francis Kurkdjian’s 5 rue d’Alger boutique in the 1st arrondissement, you can pick up a box of his dinner candles and take that same scent to-go. The limited edition Côté Jardin tapers come three to a set for €28, and if the design on the box looks familiar, you’re likely recalling the patterned flowerbeds that André Le Nôtré created for King Louis XIV.

As for the scent: gorgeous! A single candle fills the surrounding air with visions of hornbeam hedges and ancient statues, conjuring up the grandeur of Versailles wherever you choose to light it. Perhaps a simple creation compared to the Grand Palais’ impressive fountain, but one you could enjoy long after the Biennale.

As Francis himself greets visitors to his website, ‘Welcome to a world of refinement and sensuality. Maison Francis Kurkdjian houses a unique collection, with a rarely matched quest for sophistication and elegance. Our luxury is a commitment to quality and authentic know-how, from the selection of the purest and rarest essential oils, to the infinite attention to every detail.’

And we’ll leave (almost) the last word to Francis, too. He explains: ‘Maison Francis Kurkdjian is my way to express what I think about the world of fragrances, it is my take on luxury. It is nurtured from my background as a perfumer and a composer, my artistic sensibility and sensitivity.’

Not Only In The Dark, Lancôme La Nuit Trèsor L’Eau de Parfum

Lancome La Nuit Trèsor L'Eau de Parfum Penelope Cruz

Penelope Cruz for Lancômes La Nuit Tresor 

Earlier this year, Lancôme added a new scent to the Trèsor family, called ‘La Nuit Trèsor’. A seductive and bewitching fragrance housed in a multi-faceted diamond rose bottle, this fragrance boasts notes of black rose, vanilla orchid, incense, patchouli, and lychee praline.

Lancômes La Nuit Tresor comes in a gorgeous multi-faceted diamond-shaped bottle, so it needs to be rested on its side. The rim of the glass is tinted black to represent the black rose element of the scent. The perfume itself is tinted a warm shade of pink abricot, which contrasts nicely with the black. Tied around the neck of the bottle is a ribbon made into a rose bearing the La Nuit Trèsor logo…

lancome-la-nuit-tresor-l'eau-de-parfum-review-1

Upon first whiff, La Nuit Trèsor smelled very familiar and after another long, deep whiff, I realized that this fragrance smells like Thierry Mugler’s Angel and Chopard’s Wish (that ‘diamond’)!  La Nuit Trèsor bears very similar notes as Angel, like: patchouli, praline, candy notes, vanilla ao.. And as Chopard’s Wish like: patchouli, vanille, orchid ao.

Top notes: Pear
Heart: Vanilla orchid, Black rose
Base: Patchouli, Incense, Vanilla, Praline, Papyrus

For those people who like these two scents, they have a new one to love! I also think that a lot of people will call it a much more demure, or lighter version of Angel, thus making it a lot more pleasant… For sure yoy don’t have to wait ’till dark. You can use it all day long. A true new Lancôme classic!

lancome-la-nuit-tresor-l'eau-de-parfum-review-2

Important tip: Like Thierry Mugler’s Angel and many others, I can’t say it enough times (and I will repeat it here over and over again!), when you use this fragrances: don’t spray it for to close! Keep a distance from around 30cm…. at least! Walk through it… Give it some air! And notice the difference!!!

 

 

 

 

 

Lancôme Absolue turns 50 with Arthus-Bertrand

 

 

lancc3b4me-absolue-turns-50-with-arthus-bertrand-e1532521384521.jpg

To mark the anniversary, Lancôme is launching a new Absolue Precious Oil and also, in collaboration with famous French engraver and jewelry maker Arthus-Bertrand, a special edition of Absolue L’Extrait.

Lancôme is launching, in collaboration with French engraver and jewelry maker Arthus-Bertrand, a special edition of Absolue L’Extrait.

It was 1965 when Lancôme introduced the first Absolue skin cream, a product formulated to fight the signs of aging, nourish the skin and rejuvenate it to reveal its underlying “Golden Glow”. Fifty years later, the French brand has presented the latest item in the Absolue range, Absolue Precious Oil Nourishing Luminous Oil, which is made with rose essential oil and seven other essential oils and plant oils.

The new product is formulated to moisturize the skin and to protect it from exterior stressors by repairing its outer defense barriers. And to celebrate this landmark anniversary in style, Lancôme called upon Arthus-Bertrand to create an exceptional case for Absolu L’Extrait, produced in a limited edition of just 500 units worldwide. All in gold, with cutwork allowing light to shine through, this exclusive case is something of a nod to Lancôme’s ‘Golden Glow’.

Lancome L’Absolue Precious Oil Nutrition Lumière will go on sale from February 2 for €169 (around $206). Price is available on request for the Arthus-Bertrand Limited Edition of Abs.

 

 

 

Behind the scenes with Lupita Nyong’o and Lancôme

Lupita Nyong'o

Lancôme releases its behind-the-scenes film featuring new ambassador Lupita Nyong’o on set of her ‘joyful’ new campaigns…

As previously mentined, Hollywood darling Lupita Nyong’o is the latest beautiful face to front French beauty authority in the field, Lancôme. The Oscar-winning actress has brought a certain ‘joie de vivre’ to the project, made clear by the release of a behind-the-scenes film – shot on the sets of Nyong’o’s two new advertising campaigns.

Working with photographers Mert and Marcus was a lot of fun. They did it with such a joy and you want nothing but to help them accomplish what they’re doing, and it’s so easy to trust them.

Lupita Nyong’o

A girl after my own beauty heart, it’s the subject matter that Nyong’o seems pretty thrilled by too: “make-up for me is like a frame of an art piece”, she says.

It concerns two campaigns; L’Absolue Rouge lipsticks (the campaign which she shares with fellow actress Penelope Cruz) and Teint Idole Foundation (the campaign which she shares with Daria Werbowy, and currently displayed in the US only but soon to be revealed worldwide), and the actress was keen to share her personal beauty tips for both.

Lancôme has a reputation when it comes to mascara’s. The Maison is often called ‘the best mascara maker in the world!’. Lancôme’s Mascara Grandiôse is the first of its kind, as the French beauty brand unveils its new mascara which has been in the development for 3 years! The wand is what makes the mascara so unique, curved at a 25 degree angle, making it easy to get even the most distant lashes.
