Valentino Valentina Blush – a modern interpretation of a classic, yet stylish woman of today. It is delicate and mystical at the same time – a fragrance totally feminine and intriguingly different.

Valentino Valentina Blush is said to be a bright, radiant signature, filled with contrasts. It is supposedly sweeter and more upfront than the original. The composition begins with ‘soft yet sharp’ notes of Morello cherry and pink pepper. Orange Blossom is revealed in the heart, laid on the sweet praline base, to make this perfume lingering and sensual.

By Kilian Black Phantom

By Kilian has released a new oriental unisex fragrance in the Memento Mori series called Black Phantom.

A ghostly pirate treasure-ship which forever silently cruises the Seven Seas without wind or air, but with her empty sable sails drenched in perfume – and the eerie clash of spectral cutlasses still resounding from her decks. Kilian Hennessy intrepidly explores these dream-like visions in a unique, surreal & supremely sophisticated new gourmand-woodsy fragrance. He weaves in, too, the dark and ancient concept of the Memento Mori: the death that sits unseen beside us in this life.

Created by Sidonie Lancesseur, By Kilian Black Phantom features notes of rum, sugar cane, dark chocolate, coffee, caramel, almond, heliotrope and sandalwood.

 

 

 

Baldessarini Cool Force

BALDESSARINI_COOL_FORCE_Keyvisual_horizontal.jpg

Powerful, full of character and contrasts

Werner Baldessarini, formerly chief designer for Hugo Boss and founded the Baldessarini fashion label in 1993 has launched Cool Force, a new woody aromatic fragrance for men.

Baldessarini Cool Force is created for the modern men whose unique character is an inspiration to others. They are fully in command of their luxurious, forward-looking lives, and they always meet the challenges of our times. The fragrances by Baldessarini embody uncompromising elegance and have a strong character. They are all united by a distinctive fragrance signature with an unmistakable patchouli note. Nothing describes the essence of the brand better than the singular claim ‘Separates the men from the boys’.

The fragrance was developed by perfumer Vincent Schaller. Top notes of the composition blend rosewood with bergamot, cardamom and myrtle, adding central notes of neroli, aquatic chords, sandalwood and musk. Aromatic opening makes the composition revitalizing, dynamic and very elegant, while woody notes provide an impression of tranquility and strength.

Top: bergamot, cardamom, myrtle, rosewood
Heart: neroli, aquatic notes, clary sage
Base: patchouli, cedar, sandalwood, musk

I imagined the fragrance to be fresh and watery. Natural aromatic ingredients such as clary sage, cardamom and the marine water accord calone distinguish this special freshness. I also wanted Cool Force to be masculine, sensual and warm, since it is a Baldessarini fragrance. For this, I used precious woods such as cedarwood, sandalwood and rosewood, combined with aromatic sweet myrtle. Just as an elegant suit completes a man’s outfit, musk, patchouli and Sicilian bergamot add a certain something to Cool Force and complete the fragrance.

Vincent Schaller

Baldessarini Cool Force is availble as a 50 and 90 ml Eau de Toilette accompanied with an after shave lotion 90 ml, shower gel 200ml and stick deodorant 75 gr. It arrives in a bottle of frosted glass and a box which is decorated with a rough concrete texture.
