K by DOLCE&GABBANA // NEW FRAGRANCE FOR MEN 2019

K BY DOLCE&GABBANA

THE NEW MASCULINE FRAGRANCE

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.

THE FRAGRANCE

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 INGREDIENTS

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.

THE NOTES

TOP NOTES: 
Blood Orange, Lemon Torchio, Grapefruit, Juniper

HEART NOTES:
Clary Sage, Pimento, Geranium, Lavandin

BASE NOTES: 
Patchouli, Vetiver, Cedarwood

THE PACKAGING

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.

THE ADVERTISING CAMPAIGN

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.

Rooney Mara x Givenchy L'Interdit Eau de Toilette 2019

THE NEW L’INTERDIT BY GIVENCHY

GO BEYOND THE FORBIDDEN

In 1957, Hubert de Givenchy turned this into a fragrance originally intended for his faithful friend Audrey Hepburn. In 2018, the House began a new chapter by creating a powerful and memorable Eau de Parfum.

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.

Rooney Mara x Givenchy L’Interdit Eau de Toilette

THE POWER OF THE PAVOT FLOWER

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.

THE BOTTLE

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

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
blockbusters.

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

Jo Malone Poppy & Barley Cologne // Model

POPPY & BARLEY COLOGNE

A NEW LEADING LADY

Jo Malone London has a new addition to their inline fragrance palette. Originally part of the limited-edition English Fields collection, Poppy & Barley has been plucked from the harvest and spun into a supersized badge of beauty. 

THE STORY

Iconic, vibrant poppies. Dancing in colour across England’s meadows. A lively floral scent enhanced by rose and violet and topped with juicy blackcurrants. Borrowed from the succulent cereal fields, where grains and flowers mingle, the poppies are cocooned by bran and cotton-soft barley. This inviting scent is a living landscape: where colourful poppies emblazon the rich gold harvest.

THE PERFUMERS

“Poppies seem so quintessentially British, and to me this fragrance represents a living landscape where poppies add dashes of colour to golden grains. It’s a colourful character – I can’t think of an English field without picturing the poppies bursting through in their unruly way.” Celine Roux, Global Head of Fragrance, Jo Malone London

 

“Poppy & Barley has an element of the unexpected and unusual – a contrast between the vibrant poppies and the nourishing grains, rounded by hints of violet and fig. It was an exciting creative challenge and new territory for me – exploring the potential of the ingredients and their combination.” Mathilde Bijaoui, Perfumer, Poppy & Barley

LAYERING SUGGESTIONS

Layering fragrances to create a tailored signature scent is part of the Jo Malone London DNA, so it makes sense that Poppy & Barley has been impeccably crafted to pair perfectly with other scents.


Poppy & Barley with Honeysuckle & Davana for a vibrant floral combination.  

Poppy & Barley with Wood Sage & Sea Salt for a colourful scent with a mineral freshness.

Poppy & Barley with Myrrh & Tonka for an addictive combination with added opulence and warmth.

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?
