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.

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.
