Amorino x Nina Ricci Les Sorbets

THE INSPIRATION

For the release of Nina Ricci Les Sorbets, the designer’s house collaborated with the ice-cream maker Amorino to create an authentic sensation. Each year Amorino presents new flavours and this time, they have created three wonderful delights exclusively for Nina Ricci.

Amorino was established in 2002 by two childhood friends, Cristiano Sereni and Paolo Benassi. The excellence of its ingredients, the focus on organic products, and the respect for tradition and Italian ingenuity, are Amorino’s values set at the heart of its philosophy. They all contribute to the flavor of their craft-made ice-creams which are now extremely popular in major cities, vastly surpassing the region of Italy.

The variety of three delightful frissons make it difficult to choose.
Nina, Luna, or Bella? All three are deliciously indulgent. Let your heart sway between them. They are colored like so many tasty dreams. Just let yourself fall into their cool temptation. This year’s hashtag, #MyRicciSplash will be the single impulse for the lovers of freshness.

LES SORBETS DE NINA

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?

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.
