Imagined as a manifesto of an inclusive and supportive generation advocating diversity, the very first fragrance of ValentinoBorn in Roma, is an ode to self-celebration. A trio of jasmine flowers redefines the olfactory archetypes of femininity. This floral haute couture, blended with bourbon vanilla, has been modernised with a touch of a woody overdose.

Masculine yet feminine, creating an innovative tension between rigor and opulence: Free by Yves Saint Laurent shakes the codes of cool and sexy. Built on contrasts, this new creation by perfumers Anne Flipo and Carlos Benaïm revisits the masculine gender of the fern aroma to make it irresistibly feminine. Lavender heart, orange blossom absolute, Madagascar vanilla, and classic ambergris create an unusual couture twist.

"With Gabrielle Chanel Essence, I wanted to get to the essentials and heart of the perfume to reaffirm it with a more voluptuous wake," Olivier Polge talks about Chanel’s newest perfume. In 2019, the Eau de Parfum Gabrielle Chanel has been reinvented as Gabrielle Chanel Essence. Familiar yet unique, this new olfactory variation is even more vibrant and opulent.

Inspired by Gabrielle's intense radiance and energy, the perfume invites every woman to fulfill and reveal herself by following her instincts, expressing her freedom and asserting herself. It luminously and warmly reveals the identity and radiant charisma of its wearer.

"I imagined this new version of JOY around an idea of gushing, a burst of flowers as bright as fireworks. I wanted to accentuate its sensual side, give it a new light, highlight its footprint by giving even more volume to the woods, a 'thickness' more sensual," said François Demachy, perfumer at Dior. The new Joy Eau de Parfum Intense is a luminous fragrance that fuses, hangs, and thrives in the thunder of a colorful myriad. A vibrant joy in which we dive without reserve, which delights the senses without waiting.

Since 2004, Giorgio Armani has been translating the essence of his Armani / Private Haute Couture collections into fragrances. Distilled from rare raw materials, each fragrance expresses a balance of uncompromising perfection.

After LES EAUX, inspired by the beauty of nature, THE COLLECTION, an ode to the history of perfumery, THE PRECIOUS LANDS, ode to the desires of escape by Giorgio Armani, and THE COLLECTION OF THOUSAND AND ONE NIGHTS, imbued with infinite splendours from the Orient, the house unveils MUSC SHAMAL, inspired by the intense and enveloping oriental wind from which it has taken its name. Amber and cedarwood have been combined to create sensuality and a powdery passion, amplified by subtle vanilla notes. A combination of rose and jasmine gives lightness to the perfume, while the Noreenal, a contemporary aldehyde with fresh and fruity breath and with citrus notes, gives volume to the cloud of musks.

The iconic bottle of the Loewe Aura family has adapted a new silhouette that reinterprets the fragrance and embodies the brand's values. A blank canvas on which the artist drew a golden line, enhanced with a sycamore stopper in tribute to nature, has become an inexhaustible source of inspiration for Loewe.

For the first time in the history of the house, 20% of this Eau de Parfum is essential oils, including magnolia, the star ingredient of the fragrance. Musk, sandalwood, and red fruit accompany the notes of magnolia, making this fragrance immensely evocative and feminine.

Aura Pink Magnolia, LOEWE, 100ml, 130 €.

Carolina Herrera launches a new collector's edition of Good Girl Dot Drama Eau de Parfum, inspired by the iconic polka dot pattern and signed by Karlie Kloss, the perfume's muse. Malicious and versatile, this new aroma puts dots in the spotlight, a motive dear to the house since its inception in 1981.

As for the fragrance, the mix of jasmine and tuberose (enhanced by bergamot, damask rose, lemon, and lily) contrasts with the darkness of the gourmet accords of Tonka bean and cocoa (highlighted by vanilla, almond, cinnamon, and cashmere).

Good Girl Drama Dot, Carolina Herrera, 80 ml, 133,72 € exclusively at Ici Paris XL.

The bottle with red and blue spots splashed on a white surface with golden touches resembles a sculpture. In 2019, Sisley offers an explosive and colourful version of the Eau du Soir, inspired by the "Action Painting" movement born in the 1950s. The perfume is a tribute to abstract expressionism.

"Dripping Fantasy" limited edition evening water, Sisley, 100 ml, 237 €.
