Jean-Charles Brosseau Ombre Azurite a fragrant tribute to a vibrant gemstone

Jean-Charles-Brosseau-Ombre-Azurite-Banner

The French Côte d’Azur is the inspiration for the new Ombre Azurite women’s fragrance from Jean Charles Brosseau. Azurite, an azure-blue soft copper mineral, has been used for thousands of years as a pigment, a gemstone, and an ornamental stone.

The azurite color also recalls the deep blue hues of the French Côte d’Azur and all the wonderful scents that blow all over this unique region of France.

Created in collaboration with perfumer Thomas Fontaine, Ombre Azurite is a floral, ozonic and green fragrance. The notes of jasmine and lily blend with the spicy iodine of the Mediterranean Sea. The fragrance’s sensuality comes from mixing sandalwood with tonka bean.

Mauboussin In Red

Mauboussin-In-Red-Banner

French Maison Mauboussin was founded in 1827 by the French jeweler M. Rocher and his cousin Baptiste Noury. They established a retail store in Paris. After the Great War, the sense of equality was stronger than ever. This was a time when the Maison flourished providing ample attention to women’s jewelry.

From the ‘Reflections’ line started in the 1930’s up to the contemporary designs, Mauboussin jewelry remains a highly desired brand by many collectors. Over the years, there have been many exhibitions with different themes organized by Mauboussin. While the 1920s and 1930s were the best era for the promotion of emerald, ruby and diamond themes, the 1940s and 1950s asserted the style of the French Maison which resulted in the creation of beautiful pieces in a completely new style. The 1950s, on the other hand, marked the arrival of the Naturalist themes and the sense of movement and dynamism.

Mauboussin opened a boutique with display windows on the famous Place of Vendôme and started offering high-quality jewelry in a more moderate price range. In the 1980s, the focus was on the contrast between light and shadow. All of the shapes were created to suggest sensations which appealed to their clientele.

A new area began when, in the same decade, the Maison started to design and manufacture exquisite watches for men and women. It was the year 2000 that that saw the launch of the jewelers first fragrance, the self-titled Mauboussin for Women. From its launch, this fragrance is the Maison’s signature and has been loved by many women.

The celebration of 20 years since the launch of the first Mauboussin fragrance has been marked with a new creation that honors the iconic flacon and the most popular fragrance of the French Maison. The first Mauboussin fragrance, composed by perfumer Christine Nagel, is still known today for its fantastic, dense, and intense, dark-oriental, plum-spicy composition, with its famous cabochon diamond-shaped flacon that was created by Thierry de Baschmakoff.

Created by perfumer Ilias Ermenidis, Mauboussin in Red is a brilliant and poetic creation that, with its fruity aromas, creates an additive effect using a blend of red apple, sparkling black currants, and sparkling bergamot. The heart pays tribute to the red and passionate signature of the new creation with a mixture of Bulgarian rose and red peonies, slightly sweetened with a fruity touch of nectarines. The warm, lightly gourmand and milky wooden signature is created of ambrox, sweet pralines and milky wood. As the brand states.

The new creation is joyous, addictive, and absolutely feminine. Mauboussin in Red will be available as a 100ml Eau de Parfum. Come into the beautiful world of Mauboussin.

 

 

 

 

Gucci Bloom Ambrosia di Fiori

Gucci-Bloom-Ambrosia-di-Fiori-02.jpg

Gucci Bloom, an intense floral scent of tuberose and Chinese honeysuckle, is one of Gucci’s bestselling fragrances at the moment. It was created by perfumer Alberto Morillas in 2017. Then Acqua di Fiori and Nettare di Fiori followed in 2018, and early this year Gocce di Fiori arrived.

Ambrosia di Fiori is a new chapter of Gucci Bloom’s story written by Alessandro Michele and was, like the other Bloom flankers, created by Alberto Morillas. The Italian fashion house invites you to take a peek at a Greek god’s feast and taste some ambrosia. Like the original, Ambrosia di Fiori consists of jasmine, Rangoon creeper notes (Chinese honeysuckle), and tuberose. Vanilla of the original was replaced with Damascus rose and orris root.

Top notes: Jasmine bud, Rangoon creeper
Heart: Indian tuberose
Base: Rosa Damascena, Tuscan orris

Invoking a banquet of an ancient world, ambrosia was the sustenance of the Greek gods, thought to give immortality to those who drank it. The name of this precious nectar and the magic it evokes is woven into the scent’s vibrant bouquet. The blend begins with the original Gucci Bloom Eau de Parfum – a trio of Jasmine Bud extract, Tuberose, and Rangoon Creeper – combined with new ingredients that intensify the floral fragrance: the rare Velvety Orris – derived from Iris resin – originally used by ancient Greeks and Romans as an essential oil, and Damascena Rose – harvested in the early morning to give the powerful rendition of the flower. The perfume is more intense version of the original with an addition of sweet, rich and dense smelling rose.

 

Gucci-Bloom-Ambrosia-di-Fiori-05.jpgGucci Bloom Ambrosia di Fiori is available as a 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum Intense and comes in a lacquered burgundy red glass flacon. Gucci Bloom Ambrosia di Fiori is available at selected stores worldwide.

Louis-Vuitton-Cœur-Battant-01-min.jpg

Louis Vuitton launched a new edition of the women’s Les Parfums Collection. Invite yourself to the journey of the unknown with the French Maison’s latest perfume.

The idea of the ‘Art of Travel’ has always been in line with Louis Vuitton, which made its way into every corner of the fashion industry from strong beginnings in luxury luggage. Thus, it’s no surprise that the French house’s latest fragrance has the power to ignite the wanderlust of everyone who encounters it.

Louis-Vuitton-Cœur-Battant-02-min.jpg

Cœur Battant (Beating Heart) magnifies the grandiosity of nature and joins nine other perfumes in the collection: Rose des Vents, Turbulences, Dans La Peau, Attrapes-Rêves, Apogée, Contre Moi, Matière Noire, Mille Feux and Le Jour Se Lève.

Louis-Vuitton-Cœur-Battant-03-min

The idea for the new fragrance came to Jacques Cavallier’s mind when he was working in his creative atelier in the historic French perfume town of Grasse, just a stone’s throw from fields of flowers. The heady yet fresh floral-woody composition is inspired by floral fields of Grasse and scents of summer. His interpretation of his surroundings translated to notes of crisp pear and rich jasmine, sparking freshness and sensuality.

Top notes: pear, ambrette seeds, Cascalone®
Heart: Egyptian jasmine, ylang-ylang, narcissus
Base: moss, musk

A combination of fresh pear and rich jasmine offers the signature of contemporary women’s perfumes, along with pure undertones of ambrette seeds. Accords of narcissus, moss and patchouli round out the perfume and give it a touch of nostalgia. It is ‘a perfume with a compelling character, suspended somewhere between freshness and sensuality’.

Ô Hira

777-O-Hira_01516717-d215-4396-8e32-fae37b79b272_1024x1024.jpg

Stéphane Humbert Lucas, synesthesic perfumer, ventures into a new form of expression in a high–end perfume. The creation relies on the purity of the elements, their refinement a product of constant observation of what is perceptible. Fond of slogans and keywords, Stéphane Humbert Lucas makes them sharper. His perpetual quest of the absolute has led him to search for the symbol, the banner, the crest.

A pure, primitive scent for amber lovers, rough and warm. The perfume of experts, it is often called ‘the diamond of the collection’. Ô Hira is named for the mountain located northeast of the holy city of Mecca where the Prophet Mohammed is said to have received his first divine revelations from God through his angel Gabriel. Also known as the Mountain of Light, this fragrance takes its cues from this holy place’s most ancient rock-strewn, tough terrain.

Topnotes: Ambra, Leather, Benzoin, Woody notes
Heartnotes: Earth, Saltpetre, Amber, Cinnamon
Basenotes: Vanilla, Musk, Tonka bean,

Fossilized amber resin, labdanum, and ambergris are the ancient materials of the old world harnessed for use in this purest of amber fragrances. If Stéphane Humbert Lucas’ goal was to create a pure amber, then he most assuredly has succeeded. Briny, salty minerals from the ambergris add a subtle, refined marine aspect to the amber accord, and labdanum a dark, raw leathery heartbeat. Together, the amber, leather, rock minerals, and subtle spice wind around each other like serpents, creating an overall aroma that is as smooth as saltwater taffy and just as appetizing. Although the fragrance is rugged rather than sweet, there is some appealing softness in the base arising from the clever use of silky, chocolate-like tonka bean, earthy vanilla, and a feathery musk.

 

777-O-Hira_Flacon.jpg

The Odyssey of Stéphane Humbert Lucas. A cap of honeycombed metal, vaulted dome, pointing sharply. A crystalline artifact with limpid curves. A crown forged of a triple 7 pierced with an aigrette of refinement. A small multi-faceted stone. Extracts of perfume with vertical fragrances.

Stéphane Humbert Lucas 777 Ô Hira is available as 50ml Eau de Parfum, and available at very selected stores.
