India Agra Taj Mahal

Four centuries ago, in India, Emperor Shah Jahan fell hopelessly in love with Princess Mumtaz Mahal. He had the enchanting Gardens of Shalimar built for her and dedicated the Taj Mahal to her as well, one of the seven new wonders of the world. This incredible tale sparked the imagination of Jacques Guerlain, who created Shalimar, the first oriental fragrance in history, in 1925.

Launched almost 100 years ago, Shalimar is since then probably the most feminine and sexy fragrance ever. It is a timeless fragrance with an outstanding history, as well as reviews. Today, Guerlain Shalimar Souffle de Lumiere is more about a modern interpretation with a classic and elegant aroma. Guerlain Shalimar Souffle de Lumiere is composed by in-house perfumer Thierry Wasser as a citrus/floral perfume sweetened with delicious vanilla accords lend a gourmand touch to this sun-filled fragrance..

Calvin Klein Names Margot Robbie Face of Deep Euphoria

Calvin Klein Deep Euphoria ad

The original Euphoria launched in 2005, with a follow-up, Endless Euphoria, nine years later. Russian supermodel Natalia Vodianova was the face of the first Euphoria campaign and model Vanessa Axente the face of Endless Euphoria. Now Calvin Klein has tapped Margot Robbie as the face of its Deep Euphoria women’s fragrance. Calvin Klein presents the new fragrance Deep Euphoria as a variation on the theme of the original Euphoria, which, although a flanker, is allegedly bringing a completely new composition of clear chypre-floral character to the table. Unlike the rest of the collection, Deep Euphoria will stand as a separate pillar within the line, side by side with the Original, as the ‘more modern, empowered sister’ to the existing two fragrances.

It’s the first time Robbie has fronted a fragrance brand. The 25 year old actress, will appear in the global print and television advertising campaign for Deep Euphoria. She perfectly embodies the modern femininity. It’s a big summer for the actress who rose to star status after appearing in ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ in 2013. Robbie will star as Jane Porter in this summer’s highly anticipated ‘The Legend of Tarzan’, as well as ‘Suicide Squad’.

Imagining an elevated and sophisticated woman was the idea behind the original Euphoria. The Deep Euphoria woman is still elevated and sophisticated, but she’s also empowered and slightly younger. Calvin Klein women are confident, provocative and released, and Deep Euphoria woman embodies all these aspects with an additional layer of adventure.

Guerlain Terracotta

 

TERR16-500-1024x668

In the 1980s, tanned skin was seen as a sign of idleness and abandon, but also of action, success and a relaxed nature. A healthy glow was synonymous with all the pleasure of living. It evoked sunshine, space, freedom and sensuality. By observing the reflections of the sun’s rays on the desert dunes, an idea was born: to bring together the sky and the earth, the sun and the sand.

From the earth, Guerlain Terracotta borrowed its warm and ochre tones. From the sun, it borrowed its golden rays as they shimmer on the joyful ripples of the desert. Close your eyes, breathe in the delicate scent of ylang-ylang, and take your senses on a journey….

TERR16-502A

Guerlain Terracotta. A unique, vèry fine and silky texture. A distinctive scent, like no other. An ultra-natural result, able to reproduce every nuance and intensity of a tan on th skin. From the moment it was launched, in 1984, Guerlain Terracotta immediately became a beauty essential, a must-have for many make-up artists and women around the world..

Often copied but never equalled, and enriched with a moisturising agent, the Terracotta formula doesn’t dry the skin and provides (vèry) long-lasting comfort. Its success has never faltered. Somewhere in the world, a Terracotta product is sold every… twenty-five seconds! Its name has become synonymous with bronzing powder, with an instant tan, and has slipped into everyday language. Incredibly easy to apply, for a perfectly natural make-up result, Terracotta reveals all the glory of a sun-kissed, healthy glow. Beauty enhancing, sheer, luxurious and gentle, true to values dear to Guerlain, it creates a stunning complexion.

00 CLAIR – BLONDES.jpg

02 NATUREL – BLONDES

03 NATUREL – BRUNETTESTerracotta, Guerlain’s legendary ‘Holy Grail’ bronzing powder. A sunny motif marked with the double G (more colors availble).

The palette of Terracotta shades is evolving. The shade 00 Clair Blondes is particularly suitable for very fair skin, while 04 Moyen Blondes, with its rosy hue, is ideal for blondes who already have a tan, to heighten their golden glow. The shade 07 Foncé Doré is beautiful on mixed-race skin, while 09 Intense gives a glow to darker skin tones.

I love the texture and colours very much. You may apply Terracotta with a thick brush alone or after your foundation, by sweeping a light veil all over the face in a 3-shape on the right side of the face and a mirrored 3 on the left side. It gives a healthy, but very natural color. It’s also perfect as a blusher, or even eyeshadow.

The Terracotta collection also features a Guerlain Terracotta brush, the Guerlain Terracotta Joli Teint, a healthy glow fluid foundation. And: the Terracotta Perfume 

Guerlain Terracotta, the fragrance,

This is the third fragrance of this collection, following Voile d’Été (1999) and Eau Sous le Vent (2009).

Guerlain Terracotta Le Parfum

Terracotta Le Parfum – The Allure of the Sun, in a Bottle

Guerlain’s in-house perfumer Thierry Wasser interprets the legendary powder as a fragrance. An irresistibly sensual composition, exotic and luminous, inspired by the radiant realm of Terracotta.

The fragrance’s intricate harmony opens on captivatingly fresh notes of bergamot, before developing into a heart of tiaré flower and ylang – ylang. One of Guerlain’s emblematic ingredients, ylang – ylang infuses scents with its warmth. Its sweet, sensual signature finally reveals a delicious vanilla-tinged dry-down. Leaving now for an exotic paradise… and the promise of voluptuous sensations.

The composition comprises of solar floral tones. It opens with accords of bergamot, coconut and tiare flower. Its heart includes white florals such as jasmine, ylang-ylang and orange blossom, laid on the sultry base of musk and vanilla.

Enriched with a moisturising agent, so the Terracotta formula doesn’t dry the skin ot hair and provides long-lasting comfort.

Russian topmodel Natalia Vodianova features in Guerlain’s Terracotta 2016 ad campaign. She looks stunning, as always.

 

VIDEO: The legend of Shalimar by Guerlain

Guerlain-legend-of-Shalimar

French Maison Guerlain has released a short film exploring the inspiration behind its iconic Shalimar fragrance. The video stars Natalia Vodianova in the role of an Indian princess.

When creating the Shalimar fragrance in the early 1920s, Jacques Guerlain drew inspiration from the legendary love affair between a princess, Mumtaz Mahal, and the emperor Shah Jahan. As a testament of his devotion upon the death of his wife, he built the most splendid of tombs: the Tai Mahal.

This legend is at the heart of the new short film directed by French filmmaker Bruno Aveillan, who has also directed a much-buzzed about short film for Cartier in 2012, L’Odyssée de Cartier.

The Guerlain film depicts Natalia Vodianova as a sublime princess languishing in the Shalimar Gardens. The supermodel alternates between sensual scenes of royal luxury, in which she is barely clothed, and touching scenes of tenderness, in which she wears a delicate and flowing sari with gold embroidery.

The end of the short film shows the princess floating across a lake in a lovely boat. The music stops, and the Taj Mahal rises majestically from the still waters.

The beautiful full-length version of ‘The Legend of Shalimar’, at 6 min 32s, may be seen on Guerlain’s Facebook and YouTube pages. A shorter version of the video is expected to air on TV.

Four centuries ago, in India, Emperor Shah Jahan fell hopelessly in love with Princess Mumtaz Mahal and had the enchanting Gardens of Shalimar built for her. Inspired by this passionate love story, Jacques Guerlain created the legendary Shalimar in 1925.
85 years later, Shalimar Parfum Initial reinterprets the legend in a new modern and luminous creation. An initiation into voluptuousness, sensuality, an initiation into Shalimar. It is the moment when it all begins, like the freshness of the first time, like a captivating new emotion.

Shalimar Parfum Initial has been crafted on the basis of four ingredients particularly favoured by Guerlain creators: rose, iris, vanilla and tonka bean. These four ingredients are also inseparable from the legendary Guerlinade, the sensual seal of Guerlain creations, the je ne sais quoi that gives Guerlain fragrances this very identifiable style.

Created by Thierry Wasser, Shalimar Parfum Initial mixes citrusy accords with flowery and woody notes. Perfume opens with bergamot and orange notes and melts on skin with rose flowers, jasmine, vetiver, patchouli, vanilla and musk. Shalimar Parfum Initial is also featuring green notes that add a fresher air to this outstanding perfume.
