The photographers Morelli Brothers capture a shared moment between The Only One, actress Emilia Clarke, and her loved ones in a timeless black and white shot in an authentic trattoria in Rome.
For the video campaign, Italian director Matteo Garrone renewed his collaboration with actress Emilia Clarke. Set in a traditional trattoria in Rome, the film opens with Emilia surrounded by her friends. Encouraged by them, Emilia starts to sing the classic Italian song “Quando, Quando, Quando”, alongside a group of local musicians. Cheered on by the crowd, her natural aura and intense femininity draws the fascination of all around her.
The Only One Eau de Parfum Intense builds on the floriental legacy of The Only One line with a captivating new scent. Like the woman it represents, the fragrance is an intricate combination of intense and solar sensuality. Alluringly feminine and irresistibly seductive, its signature lies in the surprising combination of dazzling gold orange blossom contrasted with hypnotizing black vanilla.
Maintaining the graphic architectural form of The Only One, the bottle is now reinvented in black, the iconic colour of Dolce&Gabbana, which reflects the hypnotic intensity of the fragrance within. The gold ring detail evokes the radiant elegance of The Only One woman, while the sinuous cursive script conjures her seductive silhouette.
Top notes of sparkling Italian mandarin, crisp green apple accord and golden neroli essence illuminate the radiant floral heart of the fragrance.
Dazzling gold orange blossom mingles with the heady sensuality of jasmine absolute, and are softly enveloped by creamy, lush coconut essence, which lends a warm and sunny aura to the scent.
Smooth, sweet notes of dark vanilla in the base amplify its addictive quality, underpinned by grounding cedar and cashmere woods.

How to build an empire? She dictates her rules. And reigns without sharing. Power girl. She is daring. At all times. And wants destiny. Right now. Critics, she mocks. Diamonds: she crushes them.
Lady Million Empire perfume. Brilliant magnolia flowers on a cognac addiction. A deliciously insolent fragrance. The thrill of success…
Paco Rabanne Lady Million Empire Eau de Parfum Spray is a deliciously bold floral chypre fragrance for women that blends sophisticated fruity sweetness with a smooth cognac accord.
This is Lady Million like you’ve never seen her before. Almost ten years since the original Paco Rabanne Lady Million launched, this time around she’s taking risks and taking over. Just like the first fragrance, creamy notes of patchouli and orange blossom, are present, but take more of a backseat. For Empire, perfumers Anne Flipo and Jean-Christophe Herault have taken this celebration of femininity to the next level. The perfume intertwines the original notes with candied facets of currant, mirabelle plum, osmanthus, and a cognac accord to create a moreish Eau de Parfum with a slightly more heady and intoxicating feel. The result is a syrupy-floral perfume that promises to turn heads.
Holding the Lady Million Empire bottle in the palm of your hand will make you feel important. Its diamond-shaped deep pink glass bottle, and metallic pink lid are finished with gold detailing that exude luxury while still making a bold statement.
WHO BUILT HER OWN EMPIRE
Believe in yourself. Think Big. Dare.
Success is in your hands.

Dare to be MILLION …

Initially created in an eau de parfum for women and an eau de toilette for men, this olfactory story has been infused with new energy in a new duo of extraits de parfum by Francis Kurkdjian.
Playful elegance (L’elegance est un jeu) encapsulates the modernity of the latest creation by Maison Francis Kurkdjian, Amyris Extrait de Parfum, a whirlwind of the senses for both women and men.
To illustrate the energy of the new fragrance, Maison Francis Kurkdjian, has premiered a film featuring a young couple on a passionate escapade through the streets of Paris.

Dolce&Gabbana Beauty introduces K by Dolce&Gabbana, the brand new fragrance for men, which celebrates a new era of masculinity. It captures the essence of a man in his element, a man who is the king of his everyday life. He follows his own path, cherishing his family and loved ones above all else. Effortlessly charming, and not afraid to show his vitality, he remains true to his roots, respecting tradition while embracing modernity.
K by Dolce&Gabbana embodies this charismatic and generous spirit.
It is a fragrance that inspires and captivates, blazing a trail of lingering masculine seduction. Instantly conjuring the Italian countryside and the Mediterranean midday sun, its warm enveloping embrace evokes the fresh earthy scent of wooded Tuscan hills.
The sublime and majestic scent boldly creates a vibrant crescendo of citruses, ignited by fiery aromatics and underpinned by sophisticated and sensual woods.
This scent was a collaboration between two renowned perfumers – Daphné Bugey and Nathalie Lorson – each bringing their own quality to the finished fragrance.
The fragrance opens with zesty citruses that invigorate the senses: an energetic fusion of sparkling blood orange and pressed Sicilian lemon. Their effervescence is tinged with the fresh bite of juniper berry and warmed by amber accents of calming clary sage, blended with crisp geranium and restorative lavandin.These notes are ignited by an arresting spark of spicy pimento essence, an ingredient seldom used in perfumery, which adds a touch of heat, kindling the heart of the fragrance and amplifying its masculine energy. The scent then unfolds to a base of warm woods, sensual cedarwood merging with earthy vetiver, before yielding to the sweet spiciness of patchouli. Magnetic and unmistakably masculine, the scent both reflects and intensifies the innate charisma of a modern day king.

Many years in the making, the flacon fuses tradition and modernity. The chiseled geometric bottle is offset by the crown of intricate artistry which tops it. Each handcrafted cap is unique, the crown overlaid with particles of 24-carat gold and then individually aged to a distinct patina.
This modern day crown is encircled with blue stone-like orbs, set beneath a blue lapis dome – each also unique, resulting from a process that recreates the natural marbling of the stone. On the bottle itself, the crowned letter K evokes the traditional symbol of royalty, but with a bold simplicity that is strikingly contemporary. Strong, confident, and meticulously put-together, the K by Dolce&Gabbana bottle mirrors the character of the fragrance within, perfectly capturing the spirit of modern masculinity.
For the launch of this new pillar, Dolce&Gabbana Beauty has partnered with Italian influencer Mariano di Vaio. Husband, father and entrepreneur, Mariano is the king of his everyday life and an indisputable choice to embody the new masculine fragrance.
To capture the essence of K by Dolce&Gabbana, the photographer Mariano Vivanco chose to set the story in the heart of Italy, in the picturesque village of Montepulciano and the perfect vineyards that slope up to its medieval walls.
In the spot, a man with his motorbike is roaring down a sun-drenched avenue lined with cypress trees. He arrives through the ancient gates and cobbled streets to the modern vibrancy of everyday life – to the laughter and embrace of his family, and the companionship of his friends. He is a king of everyday life, he owns his crown.
The soundtrack, by world-famous composer and Oscar winner Ennio Morricone, empowers the modern time hero as he wanders around the historic city.
Today, the adventure continues with L’Interdit Eau de Toilette, which is
just as vibrant and liberating as the Eau de Parfum. The forbidden has
been entered, leaving an exhilarating echo. The thrill has given way to elation. While the Eau de Parfum invites you to break the rules, the Eau
de Toilette releases a liberating breath of fresh air and highlights the
unapologetic dark side of every woman.
Created by the trio of master perfumers, Dominique Ropion, Anne Flipo and Fanny Bal, L’Interdit Eau de Toilette is an intense and airy fragrance that elicits a shudder of exhilaration on skin. A lighter version, the new fragrance reveals a diaphanous Pavot flower with a dark core that unsettles the composition.
This dual flower brings a floral radiance to a narcotic white bouquet
(orange blossom-tuberose) and stirs up the black depths of a subversive vetiver and patchouli accord.
Paying tribute to the 1957 original, the L’Interdit Eau de Toilette bottle
combines timelessness and modernity. Its rounded corners carved out of
a square base magnify its pure and delicate lines. An elegance based on
strength and understatement, with a transparent effect that reveals the
luminous shade of the nude-coloured fragrance. The grey satin ribbon
laced around the neck, sealed with the House’s emblem, a silver 4G
logo, conjures up the radiance and freshness of the Eau de Toilette.
The sleek white box is adorned with a coppery gold logo. Once opened,
it reveals a surprising and unusual colour, a bold scarlet red bearing
Monsieur de Givenchy’s signature.
The face of L’Interdit, Rooney Mara invites you to break the rules and
experience the thrill of freedom. Daring in her cinematographic choices,
this talented actress has always sought to push beyond her limits in
numerous stand-out performances, from art house films to Hollywood
In the advertising film created by Todd Haynes, Rooney Mara crosses
the forbidden threshold with grace and impertinence. Dressed in a
Givenchy Haute Couture gown with black lace, in contrast with the
underground world of the Paris metro, she emerges at dawn, exhilarated
and intoxicated by the memory, still fresh, of a night of transgression.
The campaign visual, created by David Sims, captures the confidence
and radiance of this mesmerising actress
