Serge Lutens New Fragrance Launches

Serge Lutens is an extraordinary designer, a true artist. A director of beauty in all its forms, he has initiated many revolutions in the field of beauty and perfumery. Serge Lutens collaborated with the most prestigious fashion newspapers before becoming the head of beauty image for Christian Dior, then artistic director of the international image of the Shiseido cosmetics group.

In 1992, he launched ‘Femininity of Wood’, the first female/male fragrance. A revolution! For him, “perfume is an illumination, an affirmation, the point on the I”! Building on this success, he created his own brand, in 2000, ‘Serge Lutens’. A brand in the image of an authentic and daring designer who imagines his fragrances, draws his flacons and thinks every detail of his creations without concessions.

As a perfumer, he is the author to date of about 70 perfumes in collections all more timeless, The Black Collection, table bottles, gold section, skyscrapers, etc. Its perfumes for men and women reveal the character of the wearer and affirm their true identity. Now he launched two new fragrances. Two special creations that I don’t want you to miss. Poetic, eclectic – just as their creator himself.

Serge Lutens Fils de Joie

Serge-Lutens-Fils-de-Joie-Banner

A laugh awaits a sentence, a word or a situation to proclaim itself. A laugh may burst forth or be stifled by a hand that tries to contain it. But if it is sincere, it cannot be contained. On the skin, its fragrance is Lady-of-the-Night, a paradoxically radiant scent!

Serge Lutens

Serge-Lutens-Fils-de-Joie-Flacon-BoxThis nocturnal and sensual fragrance plunges us into the exhilaration of laughter. A rare and intimate, yet significant side of Serge Lutens’ personality. Childhood memories of the surreal atmosphere in a bar in northern France leave a lingering taste of excitement tinted with disillusionment. Loud hoarse voices and ‘making ends meet upstairs’. This mundane yet murky and boisterous life finds its reflection in mesk ellil, or night-blooming jasmine. A profound and haunting fragrance.

Neandertal New ‘Us’ and ‘Them’ Fragrances

Andree-Martis-for-Neandertal-01

As a way of artistic response to ontological questions and the history of mankind, Neandertal was conceived by the artist Kentaro Yamada as a platform to think and express beyond our everyday. Neandertal is a result of collaboration among thinkers such as artists , filmmakers. Neandertal images the life of this mysterious being while raising questions of the past and future of modern humans.

The results are contemporary, highly original, and experimental fragrance structures, free from conventional perfumery standards. Now the London-based interdisciplinary platform has unveiled its latest work, two new fragrances called ‘Us’ and ‘Them’, as well as a complementing candle.

neandetal-perfume-fragrance-01

Since its launch in 2017, Neandertal has made waves in the fragrance industry thanks to its unique aesthetic and boundary-pushing scents. Created by perfumers Chris Maurice and Euan McCall, the imprint was previously spotlighted as one of Yakymour’s must-have fragrances for fall 2019, and has now introduced two new scents releasing later this year.

As noted by the company, ‘us’ and ‘them’ come together to as a visual and conceptual pair that elicits a thought-provoking, olfactory experience, which speaks to our ancestral sense of belonging while addressing the tension created by one of mankind’s oldest and simplest understandings of identity.

neandetal-perfume-fragrance-02

Keeping to its raw aesthetic, Neandertal’s new 30ml glass flacons and the reusable, handmade porcelain container for the candle replicate 3D-scanned flint-knapped stones originating from Norfolk in the United Kingdom.

‘Us’ has a top note combination of bergamot, orange, elemi, pink pepper, black pepper and eucalyptus, heart notes comprising rose, cardamom, frankincense and geranium, and base notes combining vetiver, hyraceum, labdanum, myrrh, cypriol, cade, oud, tree moss absolute, sandalwood oil, and, lastly, musk.

neandetal-perfume-fragrance-them-candle

‘Them’ is equally complex with its top notes of grapefruit, lavender, carrot seed, sea kelp and iris, heart notes of neroli, hinoki and magnolia, and a base note of sandalwood, ambrette, styrax, musk, and ambergris. The candle has the same scent.

In celebration of the new launch, Neandertal has enlisted the London-based visual artist and photographer Andree Martis to capture the essence of ‘Us’ and ‘Them’ in a campaign, which you can see above.

Andree-Martis-for-Neandertal-04

Both fragrances and the candle will launch exclusively at Dover Street Market in the U.S. in September, and will then be released worldwide in October at selected retailers and on the Neandertal website. Come into the beautiful world of Neandertal.

Louis Vuitton Coeur Battant

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.

After a trio of fragrances (Sun Song, Cactus Garden, and Afternoon Swim) that truly captured the essence of summer, Vuitton seems ready to take its dreamy scents into the next season, helping the world to get excited for chic adventures sure to happen.

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’.

Louis-Vuitton-Cœur-Battant-04-min

 

The new perfume, much like the rest of the collection, shines within a sophisticated and minimalistic glass bottle engraved with the LV logo. Catch us spritzing it and dreaming of a trip to the Côte d’Azur as fall sets in.

Iconic Ô de Lancôme

 

 

o_de_lancome_visual-min.png

French Maison Lancôme was founded in 1935 by Armand Petitjean, a former coty employee. The company’s name was inspired by the ruins of a castle, Le Chateau de Lacosme, and the Maison’s rose symbol was inspired by the roses that surround it.

Lancôme orginated as a perfume compagny, launching five fragrances – Bocages, Conquete, Kypre, Tendre Nuit, and Tropiques – in time for the 1935 World’s Fair in Brussels, Belgium. The company later expanded its offerings to include cosmetics and skincare products. Lancôme joined the L’Oréal family in 1964, after which many of their classic and best loved fragrances were created, including Climat (1967), Ô de Lancome (1969), Sikkim (1971), Magie Noire (1978), Trésor (1990), Poême (1995), Miracle (2000), and La Vie est Belle (2012).

Maison Christian Dior Spice Blend

Maison-Christian-Dior-Spice-Blend-Flacon-Banner-01.jpg

Mr. François Demachy delivers another masterpiece. A bold, dense and a pure concentrated amalgamation of spices get added to the Maison Christian Dior Collection.

The name of Christian Dior’s latest Spice Blend fragrance says it all but its scent is not quite what you might expect. The aromatic-spicy juice, described as one that sits at the crossroads of spices with a powerful signature, is one that is simultaneously fresh and fiery. The inspiration? An exotic image, from Christian Dior’s perfume-creator François Demachy’s childhood, of a bottle of the famous Bay Rum lotion sitting in his father’s pharmacy.

While I don’t recall the scent of Bay Rum, that famous lotion, I do remember the bottle in my father’s medicine cabinet piquing my curiosity. Spice Blend is the olfactory translation of an exotic image gleaned from my childhood. The warm signature of this fragrance is highlighted by a surprising multitude of intertwining spices in dialogue. Like a gust of wind, Spice Blend leaves us wondering if it fans the fire or cools it down.

François Demachy

The opening of the composition offers the intoxicating and sugary rum aromas in which the exotic spicy blend reveals its own character. The spiciness of Madagascar black pepper, pink pepper, and ginger essence delivers fresh, piquant, and fiery nuances while Chinese cinnamon provides its irresistible fruity sweetness. This special, spicy creation also includes very fragrant bay leaves, clove extract, nutmeg, and coriander, all layered on a strong, woody, elegant base.

Maison-Christian-Dior-Spice-Blend-Box-Flacon.jpg

This unisex fragrance is definitely one of the fragrances you’ll have to experience in the flesh. Christian Dior Spice Blend is available as 125, 250ml, and a 450ml Eau de Parfum from 1 August 2019 at Christian Dior Boutiques and online at Dior.com.

Gucci Mémoire d’une Odeur fragrance film starring Harry Styles

Gucci-Mémoire-d'Une-Odeur-01.

After Gucci’s wonderful fragrance Flora Emerald Gardenia, in the opaque green bottle, the Italian fashion house launches another fragrance, again dressed in the color green but this time in a transparent glass flacon and with a green box decorated with golden stars. The composition is announced as mineral-aromatic.

Master perfumer Alberto Morillas composed this new unisex Gucci fragrance, named Mémoire d’une Odeur, and this time enriched it with a chamomile accord reflecting memories of the past and very nostalgic moments.

Gucci-Mémoire-d'Une-Odeur-04

Presenting Gucci Mémoire d’une Odeur, the universal fragrance by Alessandro Michele, lead by singer, songwriter and actor Harry styles, depicting a free-spirited family, who embrace life without inhibitions, making memories together.

For this new scent story, the Creative Director of the Italian fashion house has imagined fragrance as an explorer of the power of memories, bringing them back from the past and making them live in our present.

Gucci-Mémoire-d'Une-Odeur-05

Master perfumer Alberto Morillas was selected to compose an unusual creation in vintage style, emphasizing mineral notes, the smoothness of musk, and delicate chamomile accord reflecting memories of the past and very nostalgic moments. Gucci Mémoire d’une Odeur is an elixir that transcends gender by its individuality, to establish a new olfactive family, Mineral Aromatic. The transcendent accord features unexpected and enigmatic ingredients, and is defined by a note of Roman chamomile.

I had to think quite carefully about why Alessandro chose chamomile. When I started to work with the scent of chamomile itself, then I understood; no one had done it before. Chamomile is known all over the world. Everyone has smelled it at some point, but as a dream, a memory of childhood, something timeless, and never in a fragrance. This flower is very underestimated and it’s a plant with an exceptional olfactive signature. The musky mineral accord is the keystone of the fragrance; it links all the other olfactive elements together with pure softness.

Alberto Morillas

In the opening of the composition, Roman chamomile is combined with bitter almonds. The heart develops the floral aromas of Indian coral jasmine and jasmine petals embraced by musk, which gives depth to the creation, followed by an accord of noble woods built from warm sandalwood and airy and transparent cedar facets, enriched with some subtle vanilla softness.

Gucci-Mémoire-d'Une-Odeur-06

Roman Chamomile has grown around Rome in terraced gardens since the 16th and 17th centuries. Giving a green aromatic scent, the sunny and hardy flower has an unparalleled character, radiating with joy, and precedes a sweet aromatic dry down with honey and green apple.

A note exclusive to Gucci, collected in India, the star-shaped flower emits a more powerful scent and colors at night, remaining lighter and fresher during the day. Referred to as Queen of the Night, the official flower of Bengal, this unique quality of jasmine has a honeyed temper and an orangey coral-colored heart.

Gucci-Mémoire-d'Une-Odeur-Flacon-01

The Gucci Mémoire d’une Odeur’s campaign shot by Glen Luchford is a concept by Alessandro Michele that is inclusive, genderless and ageless, reflecting the spirit of the perfume. For the advertising campaign, singer, songwriter, and actor Harry Styles leads the cast of the family, which includes an eclectic and universal mix of talents and models: Zumi Rosow (designer and musician), Ariana Papademetropoulos (artist), Stanislas Klossowski de Rola (actor and musician), Olimpia Dior (artist), Leslie Winer (model and musician), Thomas Riguelle (model), Tex Santos-Shaw (model), Tessa Bruinsma (model), Olga Zapivokhina (model), Oleg Ulrich (model), Matïss Rucko (model), Mae Lapres (model), William Valente (model), Katea Gramma (model), Unia Pakhomova (model), Ellia Sophia (model), Elibeidy Dani Martinez (model), Cheikh Tall (model), and Aaron Sirainen (model).

The cast is shown in diverse settings in the countryside of Rome, dancing, picnicking at sun kissed ruins of Canale Monterano – a village with ruins from the mid 17th century, including a fountain with a lion statue said to be designed by Gian Lorenzo Bernini – and in and around their family home, the medieval Montecalvello Castle.

Gucci-Mémoire-d'Une-Odeur-07

The Gucci vintage flacon served as an inspiration for the flacon of the new Mémoire d’une Odeur, created as a ribbed column in an elegant green color. The flacon in heavy glass is crowned with a golden cap.

Symbolizing a starry night sky and the earthly world that gazes up at it in marvel, the perfume’s green box is decorated with Celestial firmaments inspired by the paintings of Roman and gothic churches of the Middle Ages and Renaissance in Europe.

Gucci-Mémoire-d'Une-Odeur-Flacon-02

Spritz it onto your pulse points and to make every moment memorable. Gucci Mémoire d’une Odeur will be available in stores as a 30ml (Rollerball), 40ml, 60ml and 100ml Eau de Parfum starting August 1st, 2019, at Macy’s, Saks Fifth AvenueSephora, and Harrods.

Come into the beautiful world of Gucci.
