• Unapologetically British: CLIVE CHRISTIAN New Noble VII

    By Thursday, January 5, 2017 0 Permalink 0

    Inspired by “exquisite gardens that surround Clive Christian’s own magnificent Queen Anne residence built in the grandest tradition nearly 300 years ago in 1730”, his brand new unisex fragrances Cosmos Flower and Rock Rose are the designer’s very personal homage to “to the most celebrated periods in English architectural history”.

    COSMOS FLOWER (flower with Mexican roots, also called the flower of love)

    The sumptuous, sensual scent opens with rum, mandarin, pink pepper and apple notes, the irresistible mix of notes also include natural bittersweet cocoa, a seductive blend of plums with a bouquet of ylang-ylang, violet, jasmine and osmanthus, and caramel.

    The opening notes combine the intense power of Rock Rose with citrus, bergamot, black pepper and neroli. The heart consists of violet, herbs and lavender, and the base notes include patchouli, amber and cocoa.

     

    “Inspired by a place that is deeply precious to me, exquisite perfumes of noble birth, they are truly extraordinary and yet unapologetically British”

  • New fragrance in the house: Versace DYLAN BLUE

    By Friday, October 14, 2016 0 Permalink 0

    The new charismatic fragrance by Versace, in a deep blue flacon with gold-tone Medusa head seal and matching cap, brings a touch of Mediterranean sensuality.

    Dylan Blue opens with Calabrian bergamot, grapefruit, fig leaf and fresh aquatic notes. Has black pepper, violet leaves, patchouli, woody ambrox and papyrus wood in the strongly pulsating heart. And closes with a blend of mineral musk, saffron, frankincense and tonka beans.

    “I love how Dylan Blue captures such an evocative world of Versace masculinity. I have always believed men should be strong, passionate, proud, expressive, unafraid”, Donatella Versace shared with WWD: “I love that in today’s world, men feel able to reveal their true natures, to share their passions and their beliefs. It’s there in the fragrance, which is strong, fresh, seductive. It is there in the bottle design, which is powerful, distinctive. It is there in the beautiful, individual young men who feature in the campaign. It is there in the martial arts fighters who appear, and who prove their strength every day”.

    The campaign film was directed by Bruce Weber.

    Today we want to take you to a sensory journey with our latest perfume addition, the recently launched (right in time for summer!) by Fath’s Essentials.

    The unique collection of four unisex fragrances was created by Jacques Fath Paris in collaboration with perfumer Cecile Zarokian, and it’s a “sensory voyage through new olfactory territories and rare emotions”.

     

    GREEN WATER

    The aim was to re-create the original timeless and fresh Green Water fragrance composed by perfumer Vincent Roubert back in 1946.

    One of the most important elements of the formula of the mythical scent was the noble Neroli, that together with Bergamot, Mandarin and Orange remains among the top notes. The heart is a blend of different types of Mint, with Basil, Tarragon, Clove and Caraway seeds. The long lasting dry-down is a fine mix of Vetyver, Oak moss, Musks and Grey Amber infusion.
