Acqua di Parma reinterprets the bottle of its iconic fragrance, to celebrate the new boutique in Piazza di Spagna.

Beauty Acqua di Parma celebrates the new Boutique in Piazza di Spagna in Rome with a highly prized special edition of Colonia. The unmistakeable Art Deco bottle of the iconic fragrance is adorned with unique decorations, based on the Boutique concept. Bright elegant spaces designed in the manner of an authentic Italian house of contemporary design.     In a limited edition of only 300 numbered bottles, Colonia Edizione Speciale Roma (Colonia Special Edition Rome) is a small masterpiece of Italian craftsmanship. Every detail echoes the interior design of the Boutique, where furniture, objects and coverings are distinguished by the combinations between materials, the basic shapes and the attractive play of light and shade. The glass bottle has irregular geometric shapes running through it, in Parma yellow and black tones, colours which are the symbol of the Maison. The overall effect, essential and uid, is conjured up in particular by the Boutique’s chandelier setting, comprising numerous handmade glass items.     Acqua di Parma entrusted the production of Colonia Edizione Speciale Roma to the most highly skilled Tuscan craft makers. Every individual model, painted entirely by hand, shows slight differences making them unique. A matchless expression of that imperfect perfection which is at the heart of all genuine craft work. A vital tradition which characterises all the Maison’s creations. Attention to the smallest details is also found in the bottle top, on which the model number and the city to which this limited edition is dedicated are engraved by hand. The label, attached by hand on the bottle and on the cylindrical box in bright Parma yellow, bears the mark of the emblem and the wording “Colonia Edizione Speciale Roma” (Colonia Special Edition Rome). In the 100ml version, Colonia Edizione Speciale Roma is available exclusively at the Boutique in Piazza di Spagna. An edition combining art, design and craftsmanship, in line with the values of the Maison. An original creation, giving the pleasure of discovering the light radiant aromas of Colonia. The natural perfume of the Italian spirit with the sparkling opening scents of the bright Frutti d’Oro lemon, orange and bergamot of Calabria. At the heart of the fragrance, the subtle freshness of the aromatic essences of lavender, verbena, rosa bulgara and rosemary.     The background closure is perfect, with the warm tones of rich wood, such as vetiver, sandalwood and patchouli. The delicate nature of the hand-decorated surface requires special care. To preserve the beauty of the craft work and keep its appeal, we recommend cleaning the glass using just a damp cloth. Do not wash it in hot water or use solvents and detergents in general.

Introducing Island Water Scotch & Soda’s new fragrances

Introducing Island Water Scotch & Soda’s new fragrances

Beauty A celebration of freedom and adventure, Scotch & Soda launches Island Water, two new fragrances for women and men this summer. Vibrant and uplifting, the scents evoke the feeling of endless summers and escapism. For women, sweet jasmine and coconut are combined with earthy patchouli, and punctuated with blackcurrant. The eclectic mix of floral, woody and sharp fruit notes results in a distinctive fragrance that is feminine and breezy. The men’s edition fuses fresh bergamot and Brazilian mango with warm sandalwood, clary sage, amber wood and musk to create an original fragrance that surprises with its unexpected energy and lightness.     Housed in minimalist bottles that mirror the contemporary mood of the fragrances, the women’s comes with a burnished gold round cap, the men’s with an oversized black stopper – finishes that nod to the brand’s love of playful detail. The perfumes have been created by Firmenich. Philippine Courtière and Amandine Clerc-Marie are the noses behind the women’s fragrance. Hailing from a distinguished family of perfumers, Courtière is an emerging star noted for her bold concoctions with woods and spices, while Clerc-Marie is renowned for her virtuosic way with new and unconventional ingredients. The men’s scent was created by Fabrice Pellegrin. Born in Grasse, the innovative spirit of the world’s perfume capital inspires his unusual blends, which were lauded by the industry when he was crowned Perfumer of the Year 2017. The campaign captures the free spirit of the fragrances, catching the moment a couple spontaneously decide to swim in the sea. Shot in Lanzarote, the infinite clear waters conjure a sense of limitless exploration. Starring rising models Indiah Lavers and Coco Roussel, the images have been taken by Sebastian SabalBruce, whose emotionally driven, cinematic portraits have featured in Vogue Germany, W Magazine and The New York Times’ style magazine, T. The New York-based photographer previously worked with the brand in fall 2019.     Available in 40ml (€39.95) and 90ml (€59.95), Island Water is launching in stores at selected retailers on May 20th and online on May 25th. Island Water joins a family of fragrances: the now iconic Barfly, introduced in 2010, and whose scent first defined Scotch & Soda stores; and Scotch & Soda ‘With Love’, which launched in 2019.

California Dream by Louis Vuitton

California Dream by Louis Vuitton

Beauty California Dream, the new creation by Jacques Cavallier Belletrud, is an olfactory marvel. The Master Perfumer gave himself no less a challenge than to capture the resonance of a sunset. Seizing the incandescence of the sun’s last rays, glorifying their seemingly in nite shades of pink and, nally, recasting the serenity of summer’s blue, evening sky.   “My starting point was to create warmth that envelops coolness,” explains Jacques Cavallier Belletrud.   There’s always that contrast of how to blend explosive freshness with softer notes that will allow the paradox to express itself fully on the skin. The mandarin has as many facets as the sky at sundown. There’s citrus, but also a oral aspect in addition to the pleasure of the fruit. It creates a horizon that musks elongate with warmth. Ambrette has accents of moist earth and pear. Benzoin has a soft, crackling heat. It’s the last light of day that heralds the delights of the night to come.   California Dream harmonises with the polychromatic marvel of a setting sun. It corresponds with the day’s last moments, in the same melodious polyphony of chords. As ardent as the star that sinks below the horizon, mandarin has the incisive energy of its fruity and oral charms. While it is consumed by joyfulness, the musks of diaphanous ambrette extend its subtle warmth. And the evening gets underway as graceful, vanilla-tinged benzoin envelops the skin in an a ectionate balm, as light as a summer night.

Le Nobili shimmering oils a gift of light and perfume for Mother's day

Beauty On Mother‘s Day Acqua di Parma offers a new way of making her feel even more beautiful, Le Nobili shimmering oils. A gift of light and perfume, perfect for Mother’s Day, to be chosen in her favourite fragrance: Rosa Nobile, Magnolia Nobile and Peonia Nobile.     The oils are very light and silky in consistency, and satisfying at rst touch. The brightening effect, immediate and long-term, is extraordinary. In a few moments, and almost by magic, it will feel like wearing a thin luminosity-boosting veil on the skin. The oil is enhanced by a set of multi-re ecting pearls which wrap the body in in nite re ections and last a long time. Along with the lightness, the oils release the perfumed tones of the fragrances based on the noble owers of the most magni cent Italian gardens. The soft, re ned tones of Rosa Nobile, the lively sillage of Peonia Nobile or the elegant magnetic composition of Magnolia Nobile. The oils are like beauty accessories to make you feel even more unique and enhance the make-up, clothes and jewels at an event, a dinner or a party. They can also heighten the radiance of the free and sun-tanned skin on summer evenings. Along with the brightening action, the cosmetic formula is designed to leave the skin smooth and velvety, thanks to the synergistic effect of jojoba oil, with its emollient properties, pomegranate seed oil and karité butter that have a pleasant conditioning action. The shimmering oils, perfect to combine with the Bath Gel, Body Cream and Hair Perfume from the Collection, complete the ritual of Le Nobili. Their sensorial embrace allows to experience the most beloved fragrances in a different form, while taking care you of one’s beauty. The precious oils are encased in a luxury packaging. The iconic Art Deco bottle, taken from Colonia and embellished with the gold satin top, has a special dispenser to distribute the formula better on the skin. The clear glass makes it possible to see the re ections of the luminous pearls, drawn in the nuance of the fragrance: soft pink for Rosa Nobile, bright pink for Peonia and ivory white for Magnolia. A luminescent cascade also covers the box, in embossed paper in the sun- lled tones of Acqua di Parma trademark yellow, nished at the base with a thin outline in the distinctive colour of the fragrance.

At Home with Maggie Maurer

Fashion During these crazy times and being at home quarantined we had a delight speaking and creating an exlcusive story with top model Maggie Maurer.   Who are you (the long answer, no cheating by just giving your name!) and what is your profession (as in, how do you define it, rather than just the job title it has)?   Joy is my middle name.  I am from a small town in Northern New York state called Potsdam. I was born and raised there with my 2 brothers and 4 sisters . We were all home schooled. I never went to college , I started modeling when I was 25 , after a friend sent some photos of me to an agency without telling me.  I am a Model and I believe my job in to bring to life the idea from the minds of all the different creatives I have had the pleasure to work with.   How do you think Covid-19 will effect the fashion industry both long-term and short-term?  How do you see the impact of Corona crisis on the general perception of fashion? Do you believe everything will just go back to normal after Covid-19, or how do you see it will be?   Let's wait and see , shall we ?   How do you spend your Quarantine time and are you still able to create while being quarantined?   I feel like I have just moved into my flat in London , even though I have lived here for 5 years. The slow pace has been very welcome on my end. I am with my boyfriend ( Scott Archibald ) and we have been working on some really amazing stuff. Thankfully for me he is a photographer and I have not had to succumb to  a "Zoom " or " Facetime " shoot. The voyeuristic nature of it I find disturbing.     What is in your planning for this year and how will Covid-19 effect that?   I  did plan to split my time half here (London ) and half in the states. Proved to myself yet again not to make plans.    What is your daily beauty routine like?    Same as it ever was! Apple cider vinegar mixed with water for toner, rose water, aloe vera, coconut oil with 2 drops and lavender essential oil. In that order.     What is the coolest new thing you have learnt since being quarantined?   I am in the middle of my first batch of Matza ball soup. It's my favorite soup. And the mere thought of it could bring a tear of joy to my eye.   What's your work-from-home style like during these times?   Do you mean what I wear ? When I shoot at home skin is always better, so I guess naked.  Any other time I'm always in a hoodie.   Tell us something about yourself that isn't on your resume (a secret skill, a hobby, a previous job or fun fact about you).   I hate to cook the same thing twice.      What's the first place you'd want to go when it's safe again to travel and go out of our homes?   Local meaning London? I guess the pub with my mates. Travel wise I really miss LA .   What inspired you to start working in the fashion industry? And what are you most proud achieving of thus far?   Nothing really inspired me but when the opportunity came along I saw it was something that could change my life. The Years I spent working at CÉLINE will always be the thing that shaped me and gave me the understanding of the industry as a whole. You have to know what you do to be good at what you do.    What is your favourite song at the moment and why? Do you have a playlist that you would like to share with us?   I do yoga to my Friend Mona Matsuoka's DJ sets ( find on soundcloud )  April 8  Spring mix is a fav.  Where is the cool playlist on spotify , Anderson Paak  Malibu , Childish Gambino " Awaken , My love! " Nirvana Unplugged and Etta James Radio. Most of the time though I listen to whatever my boyfriend is playing.    What is the first thing you like to do when you wake up, and last thing you like to do before going to bed?   This is going to be super cringy but I never get up or go to sleep without a cuddle from Scott , human contact is so important. Second thing is a cuppa tea and cigarette out on the front steps, in the sun or rain.   PHOTO CREDITS: model: Maggie Maurer @d’management  Story Title: P(L)ANTS.

Hermès launches L'ombre des Merveilles

Beauty   After catching the scent of the drifting seawater in Eau des Merveilles Bleue, Christine Nagel went looking for the shadow of the Miracles. She has designed something rich in contrast, between light and dark: a tantalizingly light touch of incense emphasizes the hesperidé notes of Eau des Merveilles, the dark-colored tonka bean enhances the perfume, while a pinch of black tea fringes the wood and reveals new bright spots. Lembre des Merveilles changes every moment into something special, the wearer is enveloped in a voile of soft, soft cashmere on which mysterious incense curls emerge. A truly magical texture that looms at the edge of the day. A fragrance that makes you swoon and whose shadow emphasizes the deep shine of the world. For the temptresses who are in charge of the day and night. The semicircular tilting acon "culbuto" designed by Serge Mansau has two flat undersides. It is a star-studded loupe that reveals the poetry of the world. The "clou de selle" seal of the House Hermès is engraved on the cap.   After catching the scent of the drifting seawater in Eau des Merveilles Bleue, Christine Nagel went looking for the shadow of the Miracles.

In conversation with Victoire Versluys from Molton Brown

Beauty Molton Brown have built the reputation as London’s fragrance experts since 1971. The brand grew from small-scale artisans into an international luxury brand as it is today, known for its award-winning fragrances, bath and shower gels, home and hand care luxuries. In addition, Molton Brown is a proud holder of a Royal Warrant for the supply of toiletries by appointment to Her Majesty the Queen Elisabeth II.   Initially, the brand started as hair-care salon and the basement of the salon served for blending natural hair-care products by hand. The herbal formulations and captivating fragrances of those first products laid the foundation of the Molton Brown philosophy. In addition, with their origin in the freethinking seventies, the brand established a strong preference for non-conformist creative freedom – this is still embodied by the brand.   To create original and unique scents, Molton Brown work hand-in-hand with visionary perfumers from a variety of ages, backgrounds, and experiences. In this way, they marry their expertise with the creative originality of the perfumers. All scents are created without a marketing brief, panel testing or demographic restrictions to ensure it is the creativity of the perfumer that can flourish. It is this way of working that enabled Molton Brown to formulate their statement:made by individuals for individuals.   What are your favourite ingredients to use in creating fragrances? Where do you source inspirations for ingredients in particular?  How does Molton Brown work with perfumers?    Molton Brown does not work with in-house perfumers; we choose to work with various perfumers all with personalities and levels of experience. From Master Perfumer Jacques Chabert, and his daughter, the acclaimed Senior Perfumer Carla Chabert, through to New Gen rising stars such as Jérôme Di Marino. It is this mix of individuals, which enables us to keep delivering authentic scented stories and to make.    We ask our perfumers to express their individuality through their fragrances compositions taking inspiration from an ingredient or color that we provide, but build the scented story they wish to author. We launch new blends multiple times per year; the blends that are selected from the multiple submissions are the polarizing creations, the ones that evoke a strong emotive connection.   The diversity of our blends also ensures that a diversity of ingredients is being used. The ingredients that are coming back in multiple of our fragrances are: bergamot, cedar wood, cardamom essential oil, elemi, musk, patchouli oil, pink pepperpod, black pepper essential oil, black peppercorns, neroli oil, sandalwood and vetiver.    Since the very beginning, the quality of our fragrances has been very important to us. Only by using the highest quality ingredients, we can deliver optimal fragrance experiences. We use natural ingredients as much as possible and only where needed we incorporate synthetics (eg because an ingredient is protected or using the pure ingredient is not the best way to convey a certain smell).      Can you tell me more about the new fragrance Milk Musk? What makes it unique and different to your other products?    Describe the perfect fragrance for Spring with your own words. [Why is Milk Musk the perfect fragrance for Spring?   Our new Milk Musk fragrance is a precious addition to our portfolio as it is our first floral-musky fragrance! This fragrance is, just like all our other fragrances, a blend that challenges the norm. It is a unique interpretation of a musk fragrance, combining the unusual lead ingredient milk with sensual musk.    The fragrance notes: Even though the niche ingredient milk is rarely used and polarising in fragrance, Molton Brown advocates for using it. Milk evokes poignant and emotional memories; as one of the earliest scents discovered as a child, it alludes to a universal nostalgia of intimacy. In the heart of the fragrance, you will find musk. Ordinarily, musk is used as a base note, not as a main ingredient. It is powerful yet subtle and its earthy and animalistic qualities are perfect for balancing other ingredients, helping to create an enduring trail. Enlivening top notes of luscious pear and peach balance its powdery depth. Warming white cedarwood and spicy tonka bean linger at the base, like the delicate touch of timeless affection.   Why it is such a good Spring scent: Spring is the period of time that we are all longing for flowers and freshness, but even though we are welcoming the sun with open arms, it is still quite chilly. The delicate creamy scent of Milk Musk is one that combines the fresh and flower aspects whilst still making you feel cocooned and warm, almost like being wrapped in cashmere. The beautiful white bottles perfectly tie to this craving for light and freshness.        What is the story behind the bottle of fragrances, from the design perspective?   Our Eau de Toilette and Eau de Parfum are housed in iconic glass bottles created by designer Vincent Villeger. The bottles are handmade by artisans in England with a contemporary take on the brand’s seventies heritage. The Eau de Parfum are completed with exquisite spherical resin caps.  Molton Brown have built the reputation as London’s fragrance experts since 1971. The brand grew from small-scale artisans into an international luxury brand as it is today, known for its award-winning fragrances, bath and shower gels, home and hand care luxuries. In addition, Molton Brown is a proud holder of a Royal Warrant for the supply of toiletries by appointment to Her Majesty the Queen Elisabeth II.   Initially, the brand started as hair-care salon and the basement of the salon served for blending natural hair-care products by hand. The herbal formulations and captivating fragrances of those first products laid the foundation of the Molton Brown philosophy. In addition, with their origin in the freethinking seventies, the brand established a strong preference for non-conformist creative freedom – this is still embodied by the brand.   To create original and unique scents, Molton Brown work hand-in-hand with visionary perfumers from a variety of ages, backgrounds, and experiences. In this way, they marry their expertise with the creative originality of the perfumers.
