Givenchy Gentleman Eau de Toilette Intense

Born in Beauvais, in northern France, in 1927, Hubert James Taffin de Givenchy left his hometown for Paris at the age of 17 to take an apprenticeship at a couture house. He began at Jacques Fath while also studying drawing at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts, the French National School of Fine Art. He moved to Robert Piguet in 1946 and, briefly, Lucien Lelong in 1947 before joining Elsa Schiaparelli later the same year. Quickly, he became the Artistic Director of the Schiaparelli boutique the Place Vendôme.

In 1952, Givenchy founded his namesake house on Rue Alfred de Vigny in the 8th arrondissement of Paris. For his first collection, he presented “Separates”, looks composed of elegant blouses and breezy skirts that blended architectural lines with the simplicity of the materials. This original point of view marked the resounding debut of a four-decade career at his own house. In the summer of 1953, the couturier met Audrey Hepburn, who borrowed several looks for her film Sabrina. It was the beginning of a long collaboration and profound friendship between the actress and the designer. The same year, in New York, Givenchy met his idol, Cristobal Balenciaga, with whom he became close friends.

In 1957, Audrey Hepburn lent her face to Hubert de Givenchy’s first perfume, L’Interdit, which was dedicated to her. In 1969, the designer created his men’s ready-to-wear line ‘Givenchy Gentleman’. Five yoars later, in 1974 the french designer launched its first men’s fragrance: Givenchy Gentleman.

The now iconic men’s fragrance Givenchy Gentleman received a new, modernized reinterpretation with Gentleman Givenchy in 2017, showing what this fragrance would have looked like if it had been made today.

The now iconic Gentleman Givenchy collection is now expanded with a new Eau de Toilette Intense edition, which redefines seduction with a natural elegance and crystallizes the very essence of a gentleman.

Gentleman Givenchy Intense is an aromatic-floral and woody fragrance that brings a touch of freshness and powder to the collection, and represents a balance between tenderness, sensuality and intensity.

Top: bergamot, basil, cardamom
Heart: blue iris, cypress
Base: cedar, coumarin

The composition is a contrast of delicate floral notes and powerful woods. Created by perfumers Olivier Cresp and Nathalie Lorson, Gentleman Intense is a green, aromatic and spicy notes lead to a heart of gentle blue iris, with woody and warm, resinous tones.

Gentleman Givenchy Intense is available as 60 and 100 ml Eau de Toilette Intense at selected stores worldwide. Come into the beautiful world of Givenchy.

Nina Ricci Nina Rose Garden

Nina Rose Garden is Nina Ricci’s latest fragrance that is incorporated into Nina’s successful Les Belles fragrance collection, a series of perfumes that begins in 2006 with the launch of the magical, cheerful and emblematic perfume ‘Nina Eau de Toilette’, an aroma that begins a modern, romantic and fanciful universe, maintaining the philosophy of the brand: feminine, poetic and romantic.

The success of Nina makes it a very important reference in women’s perfumery, managing to record more than 20 variations to date, exploring multiple facets of the woman Nina Ricci, but sharing something in common: all, absolutely all mix innocent flowers with sweet provocative something, highlighting versions such as ‘La tentation de Nina’ of 2014, ‘Les Monstres de Nina Ricci Nina’ of 2018 and ‘Nina Rouge’ of 2019.

Nina Rose Garden now comes out as a limited edition that celebrates sparkling, radiant femininity, and indulges in a hint of irreverence consistent with the codes infused by Rushemy Botter and Lisi Herrebrugh, the artistic director duo. The new Eau de Toilette encompasses the sweetness of a beautiful moment and the carefree joy of a day filled with sunshine, as well as an irresistible breath of fresh air, as is stated in the press release.

Nina Rose Garden is a green floral-fruity scent. Nina Rose Garden uses some ingredients present in Nina Rose such as the juicy fruity aroma of pears, the fresh floral sensations of neroli and a citrus, bitter and somewhat mellow impression of orange blossom, but in this new version temptation is imminent when unpublished ingredients such as the intense touches of vanilla, pear, and green hues of grass. The longevity is above-average.

Top notes: grass, pear
Heart: orange blossom, neroli
Base: vanilla, white musk

This fun scented campsite is created by the master perfumer Olivier Cresp, who has created all the perfumes of Nina’s Les Belles collection – Nina Ricci’s ‘Nina’, participating again in the creation of Nina Rose Garden, in it cresp contrasts the natural aroma of grass and citrus flowers with the provocative aroma of vanilla, a mixture of ingredients a little risky although…. reading her raw materials brings me a slight memory of Bella perfume from the Maison.

What makes Nina Rose Garden more attractive is its magnificent matte bubblegum pink apple-shaped flacon, adorned with a large cotton bow on the neck of the flacon that evokes French elegance and the atmosphere of a spring picnic.

Dutch fashion model Estella Boersma model is the face of Nina Rose Garden, after in 2018 the Maison chose her as the main face of Nina perfume and of course all its new editions as is the case of Nina Rogue.

Nina Ricci Nina Rose Garden will be available as a 30, 50 and 80ml Limited Edition Eau de Toilette at selected stores worldwide. Come into the beautiful world of Nina Ricci

Finally, the warm almond notes of Tonka Bean are enveloped by the caramelised sweetness of sensual Vanilla and Patchouli.

Behind the scence, the making of….

The choreography:

A sensual and impromptu dance that is unique and poetic, shot spontaneously by the filmmaker Bérénice Rapegno.

Who is she, deep down? Undoubtedly a modern woman. Instinctive, driven by her enthusiasm and passions.

Graceful and pure, her movements are quite simply an expression of freedom. Her energy is a declaration of life.
