Prada Reveals Prada Paradoxe Fragrance Film Campaign

Italian fashion house Prada announces the worldwide launch of Prada Paradoxe, the new women’s fragrance that celebrates the multi-dimensionality of a woman impossible to frame. The campaign features Emma Watson, who plays both the starring role in the film short and makes her directorial debut in realising the film.

The campaign celebrates the myriad unique elements of every woman that come together to create an authentic, ever-evolving whole: a woman that is never the same, yet always herself.

Starring award-winning actor and UN Women Goodwill Ambassador Emma Watson as the conductor of her own symphony of dimensions – the performer, the activist, the actor, the woman – in a dynamic, revelatory short capturing the empowered spirit of Prada Paradoxe.

I think it was serendipitous that Prada came to me with this project. It was around the time when I had really made a decision in my heart and my head that I wanted to direct – and I found the concept of being a woman who is a paradox so compelling. I hope that the values behind Prada Paradoxe give women a little more space to celebrate themselves, to know that it’s ok to be complex and to explore the different facets of themselves that make them the fullest expression of who they are.

Emma Watson, Actor, Director, Activist

“It is an honour to work with Emma Watson, not simply in the capacity of her acting talent, but in her directorial debut. Prada Paradoxe is inspired by the infinite and empowering facets that make every woman unique and Emma wholly embodies this. Her multiple dimensions and ability to speak to highly engaged generations make her the perfect embodiment of Prada Paradoxe.” – Yann Andrea, Prada Beauty International General Manager.

Composed by Paul Guerlain of IFF, a grandson of the famous Jean-Paul Guerlain, Rochas Girl Blooming is an ode to nature and joie de vivre, this vegan, 90% naturally derived Eau de Toilette is gifted with the ability to awaken the senses and spark joy.

Top: blackcurrant bud, bergamot, mandarin
Heart: orange blossom, jasmine, neroli
Base: musks, sandalwood, cedarwood

It all begins with a burst of optimism. It gives an all-new initial impression that still manages to retain an air of mysterious familiarity. Your mind recognizes the invigorating crunch of blackcurrant bud at the start, with a new twist: the sparkle of tangy bergamot paired with juicy mandarin. Quickly, very quickly, a smile graces your lips. Say thank you to the gush of a thousand immaculate petals of orange blossom, jasmine, and neroli, flooding your soul with wellness and light. This is radiant florality at its peak; the sensation of elation is irresistible. On a cloud of musks, sandalwood and cedarwood lay a warm, sensual aura on the skin for a feeling of plenitude that lasts all the way until the evening.

An eco-conscious flacon

A partly recycled plastic cap sits on top of a bottle made in France from 40% PCR recycled glass, obtained from collected household glass, to reduce the carbon footprint of production and lower water usage. Its water-based lacquer and ink stamping generate energy savings of 30% and 50% respectively.

The tender green colour of the packaging and flacon blossoms and bursts with delicate white flowers. Yet, the delicate floral pattern still leaves a strong impression, promising a palette of positive sensations.

Rochas Girl Blooming is coming next month in two sizes Eau de Toilette, 100 ml and 40 ml. and will be available for a limited time at selected stores worldwide. Come into the beautiful world of Rochas.
