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.

THE NOTES

Top Notes: 
Bergamot Essence.

Heart Notes: 
Rose Essence, Rose Absolute, Rose water, Jasmine Infusion, Jasmine.

Base Notes: 
Patchouli Essence, Cedar Essence, Vanilla Extract.

MIU MIU FLEUR D'ARGENT // EAU DE PARFUM

FLEUR D’ ARGENT EAU DE PARFUM

The new Miu Miu Fleur d’Argent Eau de Parfum is all about preciousness and elegance: the Miu Miu family grows by exploring a more feminine and sensual facet of the Miu Miu girl.

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.

Honeysuckle & Davana Cologne // Jo Malone London

HELLO HONEY

Jo Malone London celebrates British style with unexpected fragrances and the elegant art of gift giving. Today, Jo Malone London introduces Honeysuckle & Davana, a new happy floral.

Hedgerows hum with bees and bugs. The sunny yellow and soft peachy shades of untamed honeysuckle climb through the English countryside. Brightening the day and scenting the night. A burst of happiness, bottled in Honeysuckle & Davana. Perfect worn alone or paired with another – through the art of Fragrance Combining™.

Jo Malone Honeysuckle & Davana

THE FRAGRANCE

The wildness of honeysuckle, winding through the English countryside. Climbing. Twisting. Ever more alluring after dark.
Fresh with rose and the aromatic, fruity twist of davana. Woody with moss. Warmed by sunshine. Fluorescent. Sunny. Happy.

For an extra hit of sunshine, spritz after showering with refreshing Grapefruit Body & Hand Wash. Or, for something a little more daring, spray over a rich layer of Oud & Bergamot Body Crème. Either one a fragrant match.
