Oribe to enter the beautiful world of fragrance

Back in 2008 when hairstylist Oribe Canales, who can count on Karl Lagerfeld and Gianni Versace as mentors and who has Anne Hathaway and Jenifer Lopez as client – to name just a few – first launched his haircare line, which featured a memorable striking scent, co-founder and president Tev Finger thought the fragrance would have a negative effect on sales… oh..boy was he wrong!

Fragrance was never intentional in hair care. It was technically a generic second thought

Daniel Kaner, cofounder and president of Oribe

The luxury haircare brand are taking the beautiful scent that has come to be known of their opulent hair products and bottling it – quite literally. The debut unisex fragrances have been created alongside Jerome Epinette and Pierre Wulff of Robertet and consist of the already iconic Côte d’Azur scent – which permeates the majority of its shampoos, conditioners and styling products – along with Silver Pearl.

I always felt that fragrance was a major ingredient that was missing in luxury hair care. Scent is such an important aspect of who we are and how we respond to things.

The citrus floral Côte d’Azur fragrance features top notes of fresh lemon, blackcurrant, Calabrian bergamot, plum and Sicilian orange; over a heart of tuberose, white butterfly jasmine, blue cyclamen and a drydown of sandalwood, vetiver and crisp amber. Silver Pearl, which is described as ‘a green fougère’, consists of top notes that include green fig, bergamot, and fresh mint; atop a heart of lavender, geranium, bamboo accord and water lily, with a base of black amber, dewy violet and leather accord.

Swedish fashion house Gant launches a new masculine fragrance with a pleasant freshness and a lovely aroma, Gant. Gant by Gant is meant to convey the fresh and airy sense of the ocean, melded with the dark woods and tar smells of nineteenth century clipper ships.

Gant by Gant was created by famous perfumers Pierre Wulff and Jerome Epinette. It blends coriander, cinnamon, lemon, lavender, Virginian cedar, marine accord, suede, sandalwood, cypress and amber. Perfumer Pierre Wulf assured that Gant by Gant would have a unique staying power, saying “If you wear this fragrance, no one will mistake it for something else. People will ask what it is”.

Gant by Gant fragrance comes in a dark-blue color bottle with a shape reminding of ‘wicker baskets that cargo ships in the old days used to transport fragile good’.

Gant by Gant will be available on the markets in 50 amd 100 ml Eau de Toilette from October 2011.
