Givenchy Dahlia Divin Le Nectar de Parfum

Givenchy Dahlia Divin Le Nectar de Parfum

Givenchy launched the third addition to the Dahlia Divin collection, an intensive version named Dahlia Divin Le Nectar de Parfum, Le Nectar follows the Original Eau de Parfum from 2014 and the lighter Dahlia Divin Eau de Toilette from 2015. The collection follows the theme of Dahlia Noir launched in 2011.

Givenchy Dahlia Divin Le Nectar de Parfum

It is in my opinion, a younger, more playful take on the original scent but still possesses the same enchanting and feminine aura. Dahlia Divin Le Nectar de Parfum represents the luxurious, haute couture version of the fragrance, a symbol of gold and femininity, announced as ‘the elixir of divine potency’. The composition is developed by François Demachy who focused on golden flowers of mimosa which brings their unique signature to the scent. Sambac jasmine, present in all the Dahlia Divin creations, is complemented by sensual and elegant rose. The floral heart is supported by the woody base of almost creamy vetiver, sandalwood, tonka bean and lavish vanilla musk.

Top notes: Mimosa
Heart: Jasmine, Rose
Base: Vetiver, Sandalwood, Tonka bean, Vanilla, Musk

This beautiful perfume is stunning both outside and within. Housed within the same rectangular bottle as the original, the bottle is made of lacquered glass in shades of gold, adorned with gold thread around its neck and with an engraved gold plate that bears the name of the perfume. The transparent bottle holds fragments of gold leaves.

Dahlia Divin Le Nectar de Parfum

She’s a goddess of our time – an icon.
An apparition so luminous, so fascinating and charismatic that her presence feels like radiant sunshine – her absence, an eclipse.
She is the woman with the dazzling aura, celebrated by Dahlia Divin since its creation.
More precious, more legendary than ever…

Model Candice Swanepoel replaces singer Alicia Keys as the embodiment of a Dahlia Divin woman in the new campaign. The promotional video is directed by Gordon von Steiner, with the visual campaign shot by Peter Lindbergh.

It is undeniably feminine and I adore its subtle, delicate sweet undertones. The fragrance is available in three sizes, a 30, 50 and 75 ml Eau de Parfum Intense.

 

 

 

 

Tiffany & Co Will You?

Jeweler Tiffany & Co is featuring a same-sex couple for the first time in its advertising history

Tiffany & Co Same Sex ad

Eric Bourne (right), a Midland, Michigan native, and his husband Thomas Trube were the models for Tiffany & Co.’s latest marketing campaign. It’s the first ad for the famed jeweler to feature a same-sex couple.

A highly publicized advertisement for famed luxury jeweler Tiffany & Co featuring a Michigan native and his same-sex partner has been named one of the top LGBT-themed advertisements ofthe year. The two men depicted in the ‘Will You?’ campaign are a real-life couple. The new campaign comes at a time when public support for gay marriage has reached a new high.

The campaign was shot by fashion photographer Peter Lindbergh and features six other couples. The ads are meant to broaden the 178-year-old jeweler’s portrayals of marriage, Tiffany & Co said. For example, another pairing shows a couple with their child during their wedding, a nod to people who have children outside marriage.

Nowadays, the road to marriage is no longer linear, and true love can happen more than once with love stories coming in a variety of forms. The Tiffany engagement ring is the first sentence of the story that a couple will write together as they create a life that is deeply intimate and exceptional, which is the message we hope to convey through this campaign.

Tiffany & Co

The ad, which features the men sitting on the steps of a New York City brownstone in the West Village, went public in January. The black-and-white ad shows Bourne and Trube with arms linked together and reads:

“Will you promise to never stop completing my sentences or singing off-key, which I’m afraid you do often? And will you let today be the first sentence of one long story that never, ever ends”

Set of Tiffany & Co Platinum Wedding Rings

Eric Bourne and his partner were the only actual couple in the entire campaign, which featured seven different couples, covering the gamut of marriage.

The campaign is all about the nontraditional marriage and how love and marriage follows its own journey. To be part of that is really exciting

Eric Bourne

In recent years, several other major fashion companies have also featured same-sex couples, including Benetton, Gap, Banana Republic and J. Crew. I think this Tiffany & Co ad really promotes the beauty of marriage, no matter the gender. I hope this ad encourages other companies to support same-sex marriage. I think it’s great that a huge, iconic and traditional company like Tiffany & Co is recognizing homosexual couples.  Also because no other brand embodies the emotion and trust that Tiffany & Co does for those who are committed to one another.

 

 

The little black bottle of goodness : Lancome Advanced Genifique serum

 

Lancome_Genefique_Concentrate.jpg

From its latest All Stars campaign to its iconic status as the ultimate beauty product in every skin ritual, here’s why we love Lancôme’s Advanced Génifique.

When French Maison Lancôme released its first anti-aging serum that paved the way to scientific research in cosmetics, the Génifique flew off shelves so quickly that it soon became an emblem of their skincare line. With four bottles sold every minute, the serum became Advanced Génifique in 2013 with an optimised formula and self-loading dropper. Here are a few good reasons why it’s on our anti-aging products must-have list.

The empowering All Stars campaign behind this serum

With Hollywood starlets Penélope Cruz, Lupita Nyong’o (photo), Kate Winslet and Lilly Collins as the Maison’s newest ambassadresses, the campaign, shoot by Peter Lindbergh,  focuses on the ‘Aura of Youth’an intangible personal glow that emanates from within, transcending age and ethnicity. By advocating the beauty of being yourself, the campaign draws attention to Lancôme’s Advanced Génifique as a symbol of universal beauty beyond surface level.

 

The comprehensive scientific research on skin’s radiance

After analysing the outcome of the skin’s visible light, Lancôme found that the skin’s radiance and visible luminosity is a result of a complex relationship between light and the different skin tissue structures. Research has found that the backscattering of inner light decreases with age, playing a key role in the skin’s radiance.

 

What’s it’s secret?

The serum’s active ingredients include antioxidant vitamin C which is known to help improve your skin’s collagen production while minimising the look of pigmentation. It also contains bifida ferment lysate, a type of yeast, that also has antioxidant benefits; hydrating glycerin; skin-plumping hyaluronic acid and adenosine, a good anti-inflammatory.

 

Advanced Génifique’s effects on the skin

Expect an increase in your skin’s luminosity month by month after using this anti-aging serum, according to a study done on a group of 37 people for two months. With a lightweight, (very) fast-absorbing texture, the concentrate leaves your skin softened with a plumped sensation.

Bvlgari Man Extreme

Bvlgari Man Extreme ad

Italian jeweler Bvlgari launches a new extremely sensual and classical masculine fragrance, Man Extreme. Bvlgari Man Extreme is the new flanker to Bvlgari Man released in 2010. The new fragrance will bring an air of elegance and precious moments. Also, it aims at modern men appreciating lavish and expensive things. Man Extreme by Bvlgari will make any man noticed and charming.

Bvlgari_Man_Extreme_Fragrance_Snake

Bvlgari Man Extreme will have a long-lasting, truly elegant and seductive aroma composed of luminous accords of pink grapefruit and Calabrian bergamot. The middle composition ideally balances top citrusy notes with cactus zest, freesia blooms, cardamom from Guatemala and warm amber along with base notes of Haitian vetiver, Laotian benzoin and balsa wood. Man Extreme’s delicate smell is created by perfumer Alberto Morillas, to leave behind a warm woody/citrusy aroma.

Bvlgari_Man_Extreme_Fragrance_Eagle

“I found Rome of brick and left it of marble”. This is what Caesar told Augustus in the last period of his life and such landscape Bulgari wants to evoke for its Man Extreme campaign. A landscape with a hero on the background on a quest to get in contact with strong emotions, face them and overcome them. As a matter of fact the set chosen is Rome, at the Museum of the Roman civilization and the hero opted by the italian brand is Eric Bana, who will meet three different enemies defeating them, embodied by the snake, the eagle and the lion.

Pictures where taken by Peter Lindbergh, but Italian director Matteo Garrone, acclaimed in 2008 for his Gomorra movie by critique and public, directed the 60-second ad, which features actor Eric Bana. Watch the beautiful video above.

Bvlgari Man Extreme will be available in two sizes, 60 and 100ml Eau de Toilette.
