Created by Hedi Slimane, Celine launches the Haute Parfumerie Collection. A collection that draws its know-how from French high perfumery, in keeping with the tradition of the Couturier Parfumier.
The collection consists of 11 perfumes, with the first nine launching this month and the last two, early next year.
The perfumes are designed to be worn by both men and women, something that is becoming increasingly common today and also fits in with the vision of Hedi Slimane. The accords and compositions in each scent harmonise masculine and feminine notes.
The spirit of Paris is at the core of this project and each of the fragrances is aptly named after something related to the city or another experience in Slimane’s career. Ranging from Saint-Germain-Des-Prés to Dans Paris to Parade and Le Peau. Each fragrance has its own name and unique identity.
For Hedi Slimane this project was about once again raising the question of French taste and its meaning within our era. The starting point was his Olfactory Journal, where each perfume relies on a specific memory.
All the perfumes feature a powdery note, preferred by Slimane. This powdery note provides sophistication and elegance.
The perfume bottles were designed in keeping with the tradition of French glassmaking. It is decorated on two sides with sharp-edged fluting and topped with a faceted black lacquered cap. The bottle has a distinct feel of Art-Deco.
The first Haute Parfumerie boutique is now open in Paris in parallel with the launch of the perfumes. Designed by Hedi Slimane the boutique was created in line with the brand’s aesthetics.
