CHANEL LES EAUX

LesEauxdeChanel-CA

You’ll adore each of Chanel’s new yet already classic fragrances that were of great importance to Gabrielle Chanel: Paris, Venise and Biarritz. Paris-Deauville. In 1912, Chanel opened her first boutique in Deauville. Located between the sea and countryside, the green, bucolic landscape of the city inspired perfumer Olivier Polge to create this radiant, woody-aromatic scent with fresh notes of basil and citrus. For our favorite, Paris-Venise, Polge evokes the rich Byzantine and Baroque splendors, which fueled Chanel during her visits, in this luminous, fresh yet sensual fragrance. An amber accord unfolds with notes of vanilla and tonka bean for a soft, enveloping trail. And last but certainly not least is Paris-Biarritz, Polge pays homage to the strong waves and fresh winds of the dynamic seaside resort town with a crisp, invigorating composition featuring citrus and lily-of-the-the-valley notes.


TOM FORD SOLEIL BLANC

o.37757Tom Ford‘s radiant Soleil Blanc is like summer in a bottle. The solar, floral amber lingers on your skin for hours, leaving a seductive hint of scent in your wake thanks to notes of bergamot, cardamom oil, orpur, pistachio, ylang ylang, Comores Islands, benzoin extract and coco de mer.


DOLCE & GABBANA LIGHT BLUE ITALIAN ZEST

o.54031Dolce&Gabbana‘s limited Italian Zest reincarnation of Light Blue is made with limoni primofiore, extracted from the tree’s first bloom for their more intense taste, are added to the fruity and floral signature scent of Light Blue, flourishing in a rich olfactive experience. Both the zest and pulp are sensitive to the heat and need to be squeezed according to an ancestral cold pressing technique called “sfumatrice”, producing a true-to-nature essence with gourmand facets. The fragrance opens with Light Blue’s signature notes of Sicilian cedar and Granny Smith apple brightened by a generous dose of tangy primofiore lemon, with a heart of white rose with tender jasmine petals and an amber and musk base. Close your eyes and imagine you’re on Capri.


DOLCE & GABBANA DOLCE GARDEN

This sweet, fruity fragrance is just as beautiful to look at as it is to wear. In the sun-kissed top notes, juicy mandarin, bright neroli and airy magnolia express its radiance; its heart is coconut essence, a unique natural extract of the fruit’s white flesh, which accents the creamy freshness of the frangipani blossoming petals and its base is completely alluring thanks to a silky almond milk accord that evokes the traditional sweets of Sicily. Enriched with vanilla absolute and sandalwood, it extends the exquisite sensuality of the frangipani note into the drydown.


PROENZA SCHOULER ARIZONA

proenza-schouler-arizona-eau-de-parfum-90ml-18344254-1000x1000
The first perfume from Proenza Schouler masterminds Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez, Arizona eau de parfum, evokes the vast desert landscapes, colorful sands and sunsets both creatives stumbled across on their travels to Mexico, the Southwest and (obviously) Arizona. Notes of orris, cactus blossom, jasmine, orange blossom, solar accord, musk and cashmeran pay homage to the state in an endlessly chic way.


AERIN HIBISCUS PALM

2.w710.h473.2x
Journey to a palm-fringed, tropical island with Aerin Lauder‘s Hibiscus Palm, which captures the island scent of brilliant sunshine on a lush beach with enough coconut milk, vanilla and musk that you’ll feel like you’re enveloped in the most luxurious of suntan oils, but better. Accords of lotus flower and hibiscus palm mingle with ylang and exotic ginger, while frangipani blends with a heart of fragrant white blossoms for a totally Endless Summer vibe.


BY KILIAN MOONLIGHT IN HEAVEN

MOONLIGHT_IN_HEAVEN_CROISIERE_W
By Kilian’s Moonlight in Heaven is best summed up with word: addictive. The new fragrance opens with a sunbeam of lemon and bergamot to the unique accord of a juicer mango and addictive coconut milk that captures the core vacation vibe. Sambac jasmine, mixed with the gourmandise of Tonka bean for—yes—an indubitably heavenly scent.


PRADA CANDY KISS
