Giorgio Armani CODE
Giorgio Armani Beauty has unveiled a new, avant-garde Armani Code perfume, for which Master-Perfumer Antoine Maisondieu (Givaudan) rewrites the olfactory signature of the Armani Code fragrance, retaining its woody aromatic, sensual identity. Crafted as a statement with a unique, rounded-square shape, the new fragrance has a focus on sustainability with a refillable bottle, and sustainably sourced ingredients including Bergamot Heart from Calabria, Italy, and Clary Sage Heart from Provence, France.
Acqua di Parma Magnolia Infinita
The newest addition to the Signatures of the Sun universe collection Acqua di Parma’s Magnolia Infinita fragrance is an artistic combination of two olfactive sensations: the infinite floral scent of Magnolia and vibrant luminous citrus notes. The elegant and floral scent of this powerful flower is combined with top notes of Calabrian Bergamot, Orange, and Lemon to introduce vivid rays of light to the fascinating and fresh appeal of the Magnolia flower.
Celine Bois Dormant
Created by Hedi Slimane, Bois Dormant is the new opus from the Celine Haute Parfumerie collection. It joins the nine perfumes conceived for the launch, in addition to Rimbaud from 2021. The series upholds the tradition of the “couturier perfumer” and speaks to the excellence of French Haute Parfumerie. Bois Dormant has been created as the daytime pairing to the Black Tie evening fragrance.
Creed Wind Flowers
The House of Creed recently introduced a new fresh and floral fragrance for women. Wind Flowers was brought to life by Master Perfumer Olivier Creed over a five-year journey. He was inspired by the grace and strength of a dancer’s flowing movement through the wind in the air. He created a sparkling floral fragrance with magical undertones of woody nougat. It opens with sweet jasmine, wrapped around the zesty scent of Tunisian orange blossom and a fruity peach note. A flurry of warm sandalwood is twisted around the floral heart of a delicate jasmine flower, tuberose petals and a sweet rose extract which adds depth and texture to this fragrance. A haze of iris and musk deepen the base, as a fragrant note of orange blossom and creamy praline offsets the dusky floral scent.
Ex Nihilo Xmas Musc
In honour of the holiday season, French fragrance house Ex Nihilo has introduced a limited edition concept. Xmas Musc celebrates the festive season with a focus on three personalised creations from the brand’s SIGNATURE Collection selected by Master Perfumers. These three perfumes (Fleur Narcotique, Gold Immortals and The Hedonist) are reinterpreted with Musk to enhance their scent and bring a new brightness, an enveloping veil on the skin and an intoxicating sillage. Available for a limited time.
Gucci Alchemist’s A Garden Reason To Love
Gucci has introduced a new Eau de Parfum to its Alchemist’s Garden collection. Capturing luminosity and intensity through a Damascena Rose and Oud composition A Reason To Love is a union of Damascena Rose, Oud Accord, and Tolu Balsam that delivers sensuality and warmth. Honeyed top notes of Damascena Rose, Peony, and Cardamom light up the senses with a combination of florals and spice. Oud Accord’s precious woods reveal a rich, ambery heart, while Tolu Balsam adds a resinous vanillic base. Housed in a chic black bottle the scent is a symbol of passion, vitality, and the promise of everlasting fire.
Gris Dior is a signature fragrance that is now more than ever closely tied to the history of Dior Couture. The fragrance is the olfactory expression of the Dior grey, the iconic colour Christian Dior loved to celebrate: the couture grey, the sentimental grey of the couturier’s family home in Granville, Normandy, and the pearl grey of the shopfront on Avenue Montaigne. It’s a fragrance that unfurls with citrus top notes enveloped in a floral accord and set against a backdrop of ambery moss. An intense scent that makes a strong, recognizable statement, always with elegance, and leaves a compelling trail.
