Van Cleef & Arpels Enchants With Oud Blanc N°1584400

Creating the most beautiful and precious jewelry and watches, French Maison Van Cleef & Arpels was founded by Charles Arpels and his brother-in-law Alfred Van Cleef in 1896. The pair opened their first boutique at the prestigious Place Vendôme in 1906. They gained notoriety for their use of precious stones and their expertise and innovation in stone-setting techniques.

Parisian jeweller Van Cleef & Arpels is a pioneer in its field, with a subtle mix of knowledge and experience. Maison Van Cleef & Arpels is built on strong and specific values of elegance, femininity, creativity, excellence and style. The Maison’s fragrances mirror the philosophy of the jewellery collections, bringing together an array of rare ingredients in compelling scents, which are presented in perfectly crafted flacons that possess their own Van Cleef & Arpels magic.

Beautiful Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry has adorned the bodies of royalty, prominent political figures, socialites and numerous actresses and entertainers. The Maison’s first foray into fragrances came with ‘First’ for Women, in 1978, a classic timeless floral aldehyde scent. ‘First’ has remained a popular choice and inspired a number of flankers over the years. Other notable releases include men’s classics, ‘Pour Homme’ (1978), ‘Tsar’ (1989), and the ‘Collection Extraordinaire’, a luxury line whose first fragrance was introduced in 2009.

Next month, Van Cleef & Arpels will launch Oud Blanc, a new addition to the Maison′s Collection Extraordinaire. The Maison revisits the legendary Oud Wood with Oud Blanc. Oud Blanc, offering an extraordinary reinterpretation of that legendary wood that we mistakenly thought no longer had secrets.

To approach the Oud in a different way, I was inspired by what happens when it is burned during ceremonies. It releases a blazing, enveloping smoke, laden with mystery and opulence. I tried to recreate the scent of this smoke,which is both warm, soft and translucent.

Anne Flipo, master perfumer

Oud Blanc is not a reworked version of the Oud: it’s a rediscovery. Enclosed within a white flacon, this woody oriental offers a surprising and crystal clear view of that tempered wood. Those men and women who flinch violently at the keyword ‘Oud’ may still be able to relax with the latest Collection Extraordinaire offshoot.

Although this Eau de Parfum noticeably contains eaglewood, according to master perfumer Anne Flipo this is more like burnt oud, which is supposed to be quite intense, but here it is warm and soft and has been steamed down to a translucent level. The result was an oud note that is present but absolutely soft.

There are also some gourmand notes, such as date and vanilla, whereby the latter, together with frankincense (perhaps rather benzoin), makes it look as if some light chocolate has been used. Vanilla gives the composition its sweet and creamy trait, while incense causes a whirlwind of emotions in spreading its structured and smoky facets. It also goes very well with white, light musk.

The date in turn gives the whole composition a fine, delicately fruity-sweet underline, whereas the rose appears more as if breathed in. Oud Blanc remains, as could not be expected otherwise, quite linear. And it’s no surprise that the date runs out first and oud with white musk remains most consistent.

Well – this is all done quite well, even if the wheel is not reinvented here. What we have here is an extremely pleasant autumn scent that brings together the components of soft oud with unobtrusive gourmand notes in an exemplary manner. For hardcore oud aficionados rather uninteresting – for beginners a welcome opportunity.

If a color could symbolize this research, there is no doubt that it would be white: a bright and timeless white whose purity is enhanced by a perfectly balanced, elegant and refined flacon.

Van Cleef & Arpels Oud Blanc N°1584400 is available as 75ml Eau de Parfum at selected stores worldwide. Come into the beautiful world of Van Cleef & Arpels.

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.

Despite the risks, we stand at the brink of dizziness on the edge of a cliff weathered by salt water. At this moment, we entrust our fate to what awaits us. Whether we tread on dangerous ground or lose sight of the way, rose stays true to itself and oud overpowers all else!

Serge Lutens

Serge-Lutens-Périlleusement-Vôtre-Flacon-BoxA fragrant psychoanalysis. An uncompromising creation which reflects the need to take great personal and creative risks and to seek the singularity which society perceives as dangerous. The moment to embark on a personal journey. What defines us, our uniqueness, or our destiny? At what moment of the journey does the artist bloom? An intimate and personal olfactory creation which lays its creator bare.

Dominant notes
Oud – rose

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.

 

 

 

 

Precious Chopard Black Incense Malaki

Swiss watchmaker and jewelry house Chopard was founded in 1860. Founded in the small Swiss village of Sonvillier, Chopard’s initial focus was on precision timepieces, in the Swiss tradition. In 1963, the company sought a buyer who could continue the family’s rich heritage of fine timepiece production, and the company was sold to Karl Scheufele, from a noted German watchmaking family.

Chopard experienced tremendous growth under the Scheufele family, who modernized the company and expanded its expertise into fine jewelry. In 1989, Chopard launched its first fragrance: Happy Diamonds. Creative director of the Maison, Caroline Scheufele, wanted to create a connection between a precious stone and a perfume.

In the years that followed, Chopard has launched a beautiful collection of iconic fragrances, like the Casmir Collection (from 1992), Heaven (1994), the Wish Collection (from 1997), the Malaki Collection (from 2012), the 1000 Miglia Collection (from 2013), the Gardens of Paradise Collection (2018), and the Garden of Kings Collection (2019).

Follow Jo Malone London to Lavenderland

Journey to an enchanted world of violet visions, where English lavender meanders in purple pathways across the countryside. Discover a trio of takes on this timeless note, each offering a different presentation of natural lavender. One strikingly aromatic, the second fresh with a cool woodiness, and the third cascading with soft florals. Fall out of the ordinary and into a new lavender story.

In perfumery, we mainly use French lavender. It is such a familiar, popular scent, so we wanted to explore it in ways that you might not be used to. We’ve taken natural English lavender and gone in three different directions with the other ingredients, to give it that Jo Malone London twist.

Celine Roux, Jo Malone Global Head of Fragrance

The Lavenderland themed line is modeled in the same style as the previously presented English Fields Collection, Wild Flowers & Weeds Collection and The Herb Garden Collection. In its purple hues, the new Lavenderland line promises relaxing and subtle compositions in which lavender shows her different faces, facets and characters.

Jo Malone Wisteria & Lavender

Cascading wisteria frames a characterful house, creating a nostalgic purple picture. This soft floral presentation of English lavender is entwined with sweet wisteria and powdery heliotrope. A picturesque trio, cocooned in clean and delicate white musk. Jo Malone Wisteria & Lavender is available in a 30ml flacon.

Jo Malone Silver Birch & Lavender

Morning light across a rambling garden, framed by silver birch trees.
The air fresh with a crisp coolness that cuts through the iconic scent of English lavender. Refreshed with a squeeze of grapefruit, grounded by a woody, charismatic base of silver birch and a compelling note of roasted oak. Jo Malone Silver Birch & Lavender is available in a 30ml flacon.

Jo Malone Lavender & Coriander

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.
