Lui, Guerlain’s new scent feminine and masculine at once

Guerlain-Liu1

Guerlain LUI. A famous fragrance in perfume history. Because of the unique scent, and because of the unique bottle.

Now Maison Guerlain is launching a new perfume version of LUI, which will satisfy both men and women. From French language, LUI means she/his.

Feminine. Masculine. Why choose? LUI is a perfume that loves to stir up trouble. Neither totally feminine nor truly masculine, it is both at once. Guerlain is inspired by a generation that is free from the norms of the genre, and has the idea of a decidedly universal perfume.

Guerlain LUI is announced as a floral, woody and spicy scent. The creation is signed by the perfume duo of Thierry Wasser and Delphine Jelk. The two of them wanted to surprise with an unexpected scent that mixes genres and creates a new one; LUI strives to be ambivalent and complex, but unique and singular in its “alchemy” that is revealed on the skin.

Top notes: pear, clove
Heart: benzoin, carnation
Base: leather, vanilla, musk, smoke

The composition focuses on an accord of benzoin, in its complexity and its different facets. It opens with pear, cloves along with benzoin and spicy carnation notes. The base calms on a woody layer made of leather, vanilla, musk and smokey leather.

 

LUI - Guerlain's New Scent Feminine And Masculine At Once

 

The beautiful Art Deco bottle is elegant, black and lacquered, reminiscent of a Chinese tea box from the 18th century. It relies on the aesthetics of the Guerlain legacy and lends the style and anagram of the name of the floral-aldehyde fragrance LUI, which was created by Jacques Guerlain in 1929.

Guerlain LUI is available as 50ml Eau de Parfum.

 

 

 

A New Noir: Tom Ford touts latest fragrance

Tom Ford Antharcite 2

I consider Tom Ford perfumes one of the most unique and glamorous that define time. All Tom Ford fragrances are quality… Now the very talented fashion designer is launching a new fragrance within the sophisticated Noir collection, named Tom Ford Noir Anthracite and announced as the latest icon of seduction as well as a reflection of the light in the darkness. The Original Tom Ford Noir was introduced in 2012 as a woody and spicy oriental, followed by the 2013 Eau de Toilette flanker that offers a fresher interpretation, the 2015 spicy gourmand Tom Ford Noir Extrême and the feminine version Noir Pour Femme.

This autumn, the new masculine perfume is described as woody/spicy with an intense and daring aroma. Tom Ford Noir Anthracite carries the name of anthracite, a coal of dark gray color with a high gloss. The new composition, which is expected to portray a contrast between ‘brighter’ notes such as citruses and ‘dark’ woody ones, begins with fresh bergamot and spicy accords on a background of dark woods, including sandalwood from Sri Lanka, cedar wood and macassar wood, a sort of ebony endemic to the island of Sulawesi in Indonesia, to evoke the impression of warm skin.

I will definitely sniff this one out when it is released…. Tom Ford Noir Anthracite is available as 50 and 100ml.
