Idôle the new feminine fragrance by Lancôme

IDÔLE: THE SCENT OF FEMININITY

CELEBRATING FEMALE EMPOWERMENT

“Here’s to the ones who dream big. A new generation of conquering women. Strong. Outspoken. Empowered. Here’s to the leaders of tomorrow, daringly reaching for the sky and opening new horizons. Here’s to the new idols, paving the way for others. Declare the time is now, be your own Idôle.” – Lancome

On July 2nd, Lancôme launched its new feminine fragrance, Idôle, embodied by the new face of the brand, American actress, singer, and fashion authority Zendaya Coleman. 

Zendaya is a role model for her generation and uses her voice to promote education and positivity. At the same time, her involvement with charitable causes ties in with Lancôme’s philanthropic commitment as well.

I am thrilled to be the face of this new Lancôme fragrance. Idôle is a perfume that has meaning. I like the fact that it’s fresh and light. I am very particular about perfumes, and Idôle smells absolutely beautiful and I love it,” said Zendaya Coleman.

 

ZENDAYA IS THE NEW FACE OF LANCOME IDOLE

THE INSPIRATION

Idôle, is a fragrance made by women for a new generation of women. 
Three female perfumers, Shyamala Maisondieu, Adriana Medina and Nadège Le Garlantezec joined forces to create this luminous fragrance and the result is a scent that turns women into inspiring leaders – one spritz, and you’re your own Idol – strong, outspoken and empowered.

THE FRAGRANCE

A new musky chypre floral fragrance. A sustainably sourced Isparta Rose Petal Essence from Turkey exclusively made for Lancôme, along with a Centifolia Rose grown in France, shine among notes of bergamot, accords of pear, India Jasmine Grandiflorum, and a new ‘clean and glow’ accord that is set to re-write the white page on which every woman starts her story.

Verdant and tender, fresh and voluptuous, Idôle is a fragrance which speaks volumes, and sparkles in light.

THE BOTTLE

Idole has the world’s slimmest perfume bottle to date at just 15mm thick. Its sleek and purposeful design has a modern touch that fuses geometric structure with gem-like presence and chic rose gold touches.

Idole’s contemporary design is the brain-child of Algerian architect Chafik Gasmi. His vision was to create a fun, easy-to-handle bottle that would fit into the palm of a hand. An industrial designer, he envisaged being able to lay it flat, slip it into a pocket, handbag or suitcase. He wanted to create a design that was discreet yet chic and the result is an Eau de Parfum that radiates elegance and sophistication every time you spritz.

Run Wild fragrances // Davidoff Parfumes // Ad Campaign 2019

RUN WILD BY DAVIDOFF

EMPOWERED BY NATURE

Exploring the world, rediscovering its beauty and magic is empowering. It allows us to regroup, find balance and reconnect with ourselves. For those who know how to listen, Nature is an incomparable guide, an endless source of strength and confidence. Davidoff Parfums reminds us that the way back to our inner nature goes through Nature itself.

THE CALL BACK TO NATURE

The new Run Wild fragrance reaffirms and expands Davidoff’s vision. If Cool Water celebrates the power and magnificence of the ocean, Run Wild explores the untamed confines of the world, tapping into an entirely different natural energy. It is a raw and mysterious power that stems from wild forests and the green waters of untouched waterfalls.

The Run Wild men and women are fully aware that they live in two complementary realities: the fast and thrilling rhythm of our urban world and the deep and mysterious depths of savage wilderness. They value their inalienable right to disconnect, to break free from everyday constraints. They express their profound connection to Nature through their travels and explorations.

Their bond with the Wild runs deep. More than a simple getaway from the city, a momentary urban detox, it is a true quest for freedom. It infuses their whole existence, inspiring a renewed relationship to food, physical activity, time management or beauty rituals. It becomes a way of life, an unprecedented form of coolness and fulfillment.

Run Wild by Davidoff

A FRESHNESS FROM WILD

Fully embracing the evidence of gender equality, Davidoff Run Wild fragrances were simultaneously developed for both men and women. The design of these perfumes was entrusted to two teams of master perfumers endowed with the gifts of imagination and creativity. Blending carefully selected noble ingredients from remote corners of the world, they crafted unique fragrances that express premium naturality and a new olfactory identity:a freshness from the wild.

 

RUN WILD FOR HIM

Blending more than six natural ingredients, the Run Wild men’s fragrance is an ode to a wild and authentic Nature. At its heart, wild lavender from the American Southeast delivers the incomparable freshness that constitutes the perfume’s signature scent. This ultra-resilient plant perfectly illustrates what Run Wild is about. In the most extreme climatic conditions, in arid soil, it manages to grow and thrive. Slightly salty and very fresh, it completely renews the concept of coolness.

This amazing essence is facetted with precious cinnamon from Madagascar. Collected deep in the bush from carefully selected trees, this rich spice is characterized by unique overtones of amber. Warm, almost incandescent, its rich aroma perfectly highlights the freshness of the wild lavender. Cinnamon also imparts a highly delectable quality to Davidoff Run Wild. Powerful base notes of fir balsam add an unabashedly virile touch. The precious golden resin symbolizes the raw strength and vital energy that the Run Wild man draws from Nature.

RUN WILD FOR HIM // DAVIDOFF

RUN WILD FOR HER

The fragrance was inspired by the mouth-watering memory of a pistachio cream. This unlikely but brilliant accord offers a truly unique top note. Very creamy, highly delectable and slightly mischievous, the scent evokes freedom and sensuality. This green nut is facetted with ruby red pomegranate. The generous and juicy fruit creates an intense explosion of flavors, adding to the appetizing quality of the pistachio cream.
This intense fruity overture is contrasted by blossoming floral heart notes. Among them, jasmine takes precedence as its lush and carnal scent infuses the Run Wild women’s perfume. The mesmerizing white flower seamlessly blends sensuality and sophistication, fittingly reflecting the fragrance’s premium naturality.

RUN WILD FOR HER // DAVIDOFF

SHADES OF GREEN

The bottle of the Run Wild men’s fragrance pays homage to Cool Water’s heritage. It retains the sleek and architectural lines of the iconic blue bottle. The heavy facetted glass and engraved metal cap are a token of premium quality and unrivalled elegance. The vivid and lively font of the logo recalls Davidoff Run Wild’s attachment to its instinctive nature. The bottle of the Run Wild women’s fragrance is a variant of its male counterpart. Their similitude reflects a sense of equality that leaves room for diversity. The lines are softer, more rounded and delicate.
The transparent bottles of the men’s and women’s fragrances reveal slightly different shades of green.
The choice of this color, seldom used in perfumery, was deliberate. Beyond the obvious allusion to Nature, it is a sign of unconventionality and freedom, a token of creativity and sophistication.

The men’s fragrance displays a deep green shade, with rich blue overtones.  The women’s perfume exhibits a lighter lime green.
The outer boxes match this distinction. Both proudly exhibit the common Run Wild signature.

Are you ready to break free?
Will you dare answer the call of the wild?

Sparkling with contemporary energy, Miu Miu’s Fleur D’Argent Eau de Parfum serves as an indulgent twist on the enduringly classic fragrances for which the label is renowned.  

Miu Miu Fleur d’ Argent Eau de Parfum

THE PERFUME

Last-born of Miuccia Prada and perfumer Daniela Andrier, Miu Miu Fleur D’Argent (“Silver Blossom”) is the first fragrance of the brand to introduce a new top note.

The sensual, sophisticated Tuberose is a thicker, more mature white flower. A balanced composition with an overdose of musk accord and akigalawood trails provide an enveloping roundness. Miu Miu Fleur D’Argent is like the layering of an elegant jacket over a sexy dress: the scent starts with a refined arrival, followed by a dazzlingly sensual expansion.

THE BOTTLE

Faithful to the Miu Miu matelassé glass, Fleur d’Argent bottle is now magnified by an internal silver lacquering reminiscent a medallion caught in ice.  The distinctive lid, decorated in a pink pastel color, is both minimalistic and playful.  Playing with the light reflections and the mirror facet of the silver bottle, Fleur d’Argent is now a jewel.

Tom Ford White Suede Collection

THE WHITE SUEDE COLLECTION

Tom Ford presents the TOM FORD PRIVATE BLEND WHITE SUEDE COLLECTION. Three distinct fragrances inspired by the endless possibilities of one of the most important elements in perfumery: the musk. 
Packaged in a similarly lighter fashion, the White Suede Collection is bottled in clear glass with white lids, a stark contrast to the dark glass lids used for Ford’s other scents. The limited-edition collection also includes three lipsticks and an eyshadow squad.

“My intention was to rely on the true beauty of musk, which is not heavy or ‘dirty’ at all, but does have a deep, imposing softness. The scent of pure musk is reminiscent of the scent of bare skin, ” says Tom Ford. “What I have found is that there is such a range of shades and tones in the musk family that a single fragrance cannot express its character.”

The White Suede Collection symbolizes the many facets of musk expressed by three fragrances; White Suede, Jasmine Musk and Mask Pure – contemporary interpreting the strong yang energy of the South with harmonious balance and atmospheric softness. Inspired by its history in the highlands around China, the luxuriously addictive musk in these three fragrances evokes the texture and feel around their notes in their lightest composition. The result is three distinct fragrances, each of which has its own unique character by sending a powerful message of bold desire.

WHITE SUEDE

Wild, charming and irresistible; for Tom Ford Leather and Suede have a powerfully addictive pull. In this elegant musk fragrance, he captures the primal essence of these supple, sensual materials, giving them beautiful new dimension with a surprising musk medley that is heightened with velvety rose and warm amber.

TOM FORD LOST CHERRY // EAU DE PARFUM

LOST CHERRY

Luscious. Tempting. Insatiable.
Lost Cherry is a full-bodied journey into the once-forbidden; a tempting dichotomy of playful, candy-like gleam on the outside and luscious flesh on the inside.”—TOM FORD

THE PARFUM

A decadent combination of fruity and indulgent scents, the enticing fragrance captures the essence of the forbidden fruit.

Innocence intersects indulgence with an opening that captures the classic perfection of the exotic cherry fruit – Black Cherry’s ripe flesh dripping in cherry liqueur glistens with a teasing touch of Bitter Almond. 

The heart bursts forth in cherry waves of sweeth and tart. Griotte Syrup expresses the textured maceration of voluptuous fruits while breathtaking florals Turkish Rose and Jasmine Sambac penetrate the senses and soul. 

Peru Balsam and Roasted Tonka at the drydown suggest a new portrait of an iconic symbol. When blended with an unexpected melange of sandalwood, vetiver and cedar, the finish reaches fantasy-inspiring levels of insatiability. 

Centred on black cherry, it’s accented with voluptuous fruit and breath-taking florals: Turkish rose and jasmine sambac for waves of sweet and tart. Peru balsam and tonka are juxtaposed with sandalwood, vetiver and cedar – giving freshness to the dry down.

AN ORIENTAL JOURNEY TO NAMIBIA

“Namibia, with its sand dunes and warm desert colours, conjured up the romance of faraway lands.”

— Céline Roux, Fragrance Director

Myrrh & Tonka is the latest unisex addition to Cologne Intense Collection.

Developed by perfumer Mathilde Bijaoui this creamy yet sensual fragrance is addictive, captivating and mesmerising.  It combines the potent sap of the Namibian myrrh tree with a little dose of warm almond and lush vanilla from the tonka bean. The final fragrance is deep and gives a real sense of richness, travel and escape while it stays true to Jo Malone’s philosophy of simplicity and clarity.

TASTING NOTES

“Both the myrrh and the tonka have a decadent and addictive quality that chimes with the concept of rarity and opulence. I felt that the collection was missing a fully warm, sensual and rounded Oriental feel.”

Right at the top there is a hint of lavender and a little floral to make the opening effect comforting and voluptuous. The big, rich heart and base note of myrrh is sensual and balsamic, with hints of amber and licorice. And the tonka brings generosity. There is also a touch of vanilla, cypriol and gaiac wood, which together deliver a smoky tobacco note to the perfume.
