Aurélien

Aurélien

Aurélien

2ml eau de parfum

FAMILY:  FLORIENTAL
TOP NOTES:  orange blossom, jasmine
BASE NOTES:  benzoin, myrrh, opopanax, patchouli, black amber

 

Aurélien is the character for whom Paris is home; Paris with all its romance, enchantment and innate style, captured in this fragrance of opposites. White heady florals mingle with dark and mysterious resinous notes to create a scent that is truly beguiling, sensual and, of course, utterly chic.

George

George

George

2ml eau de parfum

FAMILY:  CHYPRE GREEN
TOP NOTES:  cannabis, galbanum
HEART NOTES:  violet leaf, jasmine, rose, iris
BASE NOTES:  woody notes, oakmoss

 

And so, to London, the second destination in Roitfeld’s collection. George’s spirit is captured in this mercurial combination of an unexpected resin-infused cannabis note billowing around timeless powdery violet and iris, which lead into a classic rose and jasmine heart only to shape-shift once more (and lingeringly) into something entirely more earthy, immediate and visceral. X

Carine Roitfeld Parfums

Kar-Wai

Kar-Wai

Kar-Wai

2ml eau de parfum

FAMILY:  WOODY FLORAL
TOP NOTES:  bergamot, cardamom, smoked Longjing tea
HEART NOTES:  osmanthus, jasmine, rose
BASE NOTES:  musks, vetiver, Saffiano leather

 

This is Hong Kong, and its character Kar-Wai, addicted to sensory exploration, pleasure and overload. Like the neon lights that illuminate the city, more is more – sultry spices, fizzing flowers and sensually charged skin-like notes are all muddled together for a full-throttle, technicolour olfactory experience... one for those who like to live life on a knife-edge. X

Carine Roitfeld Parfums

Lawrence

Lawrence

Lawrence

2ml eau de parfum

FAMILY:  ORIENTAL SPICY
TOP NOTES:  cumin, coriander, saffron
HEART NOTES:  jasmine
BASE NOTES:  oudh (agarwood), musk, tolu balsam

 

The spectacular, seductive sensorial experience that meets you when you enter a Middle Eastern souk has been captured so perfectly in Lawrence – your guide through the mysterious and meandering streets of Dubai. A cacophony of sultry and exotic spices greets you, weaving their way into every pore, softened and subdued by evocative Egyptian jasmine. X

Carine Roitfeld Parfums

Orson

Orson

Orson

2ml eau de parfum

FAMILY:  FLORIENTAL
TOP NOTES:  pimento peppers
HEART NOTES:  hawthorn, tuberose, ylang ylang
BASE NOTES:  sandalwood, benzoin, opopanax, tonka bean

 

The creative melting pot of a New York City artist’s studio is where Orson started out, energetic pimento pepper bounces around ideas, while dreamy gauzy florals whisk them off to another dimension and turn them into something beautifully fantastical. A grounding of woods, resins and creamy tonka then bring these ideas back down to earth, manifesting them into the most inspiring artworks imaginable. X

Carine Roitfeld Parfums

Sebastian

Sebastian

Sebastian

2ml eau de parfum

FAMILY:   WOODY SPICY
TOP NOTES:  immortelle, aqua flora
HEART NOTES:  tuberose
BASE NOTES:  sandalwood, vanilla

 

Sebastian, who spends hot summer nights dancing in a café, is an expert in Tango, so as you spritz, be prepared to be whisked off your feet and experience passion, bottled. From the outset, the combination of energetic, heat-fuelled floral immortelle and seductive, heady tuberose tells of strength and sensuality in this scent; the black and the red always associated with the Tango. X

Carine Roitfeld Parfums

Vladimir

Vladimir

Vladimir

2ml eau de parfum

FAMILY:  ORIENTAL AMBER
TOP NOTES:  bergamot, grapefruit, sage
HEART NOTES:  geranium, cedarwood
BASE NOTES:  orris, incense, amber, woody notes, vanilla

 

Named after Roitfeld’s son, and paying tribute to her Russian heritage, Vladimir is arguably the most personal perfume in this collection. Icy grapefruit, fresh bergamot and powdery cool, soft iris riff off the warmth of cedar, vanilla and amber in a manner that mimics the rigour and fluidity of ballet itself; of the cold with the hot; the dark with the light; complex yet simple. X

Floral Street

Chypre Sublime 10ml

Chypre Sublime 10ml

Chypre Sublime 10ml

10ml eau de parfum

FAMILY:  CHYPRE WOODY
TOP NOTES:  pink pepper, incense
HEART NOTES:  geranium, rose, violet
BASE NOTES:  patchouli, olibanum, benzoin, labdanum

 

Like the grown-up, golden-era Chypres – perfumes that smell like actual perfume and leave a trail of sophistication in their wake – this fragrance is unapologetically glamorous, captivating and knowing. After a little wink of an introduction from pink pepper and incense, the electric floral heart of Damask rose, violet, and geranium sets in, running wild, telling tales of a life lived... X

Lalique

Les Compositions Parfumées Glorious Indigo

Les Compositions Parfumées Glorious Indigo

Les Compositions Parfumées Glorious Indigo

1.8ml eau de parfum

FAMILY: WOODY SPICY  
TOP NOTES:  ginger, cinnamon
HEART NOTES:  cistus, Javanol, woods
BASE NOTES:  papyrus, guaiac wood, patchouli, black amber

 

A bold and energising opening of ginger and cinnamon grabs our attention, but this fragrance is self-assured and doesn’t need to shout to be heard; its initial introduction is swiftly tempered by the warm softness of woods and Javanol, while a powerful yet mysterious combination of patchouli and black amber underscores a quiet, contained strength. X

Lalique

Les Compositions Parfumées Imperial Green

Les Compositions Parfumées Imperial Green

Les Compositions Parfumées Imperial Green

1.8ml eau de parfum

FAMILY:   WOODY AROMATIC
TOP NOTES:  lavender
HEART NOTES:  orange blossom
BASE NOTES:  patchouli, vetiver, Ambroxan

 

The lavender note that opens this scent promises late spring gardens abundant with purple sprigs; those dreamy days when you’ll walk past bushes of lavender, inhale deeply, and feel sublimely relaxed as you watch the bees go about their work. We then meander into blossom – the sweetness of orange blossom to be exact – its scent matched only by the beauty of looking up and seeing delicate white petals against a blue sky. X

Lalique

Les Compositions Parfumées Woody Gold

Les Compositions Parfumées Woody Gold

Les Compositions Parfumées Woody Gold

1.8ml eau de parfum

FAMILY:   WOODY ORIENTAL
TOP NOTES:  bergamot, mandarin
HEART NOTES:  neroli
BASE NOTES:  Cashmeran, tonka, vanilla, amber wood

 

The genius perfumers at Lalique have achieved this with the most perfect balance of notes: fresh and sunny bergamot, mandarin, and neroli bring to mind sun-warmed blossoms and botanicals, which take us by the hand and gently lead us to the snuggly softness of cashmere woods, and the warming glow of amber, tonka and vanilla. X

Tocca

Giulietta

Giulietta

Giulietta

5ml eau de parfum

FAMILY: FLORAL
TOP NOTES: rose, ylang ylang, green apple, pink tulip
HEART NOTES: lily of the valley, iris, vanilla orchid, lilac
BASE NOTES: cedarwood, musk, amber, sandalwood

 

The fantasy and romance not just of a Federico Fellini film but of his own personal love story was the inspiration behind Giulietta. Specifically, Giulietta Masina, film-maker Fellini’s muse and wife of 50 years. Her optimistic loveliness, pretty and vibrant, is captured with a stunning floral accord that offers by turns bursts of freshness, powderiness, and full-bodied fragrant floralcy. X

Versace

Crystal Noir

Crystal Noir

Crystal Noir

5ml eau de toilette

FAMILY:   FLORIENTAL
TOP NOTES:  cardamom, pepper, ginger
HEART NOTES:  gardenia, peony, orange flower
BASE NOTES:  sandalwood, amber, musks

 

Slipping into Versace gowns turns the wearer instantly into bonafide superstar – but if the frock is beyond your reach, that spirit has happily been bottled in Crystal Noir. Peppy and beguiling spices ensure that her presence is felt the moment she walks into a room – self-assured. Then, as we get to the heart – grown-up, elegant, full-bodied florals – she exudes confidence and grace, giving way to a dreamy soft, comforting base accord, which tells of intrigue, sensuality, and kindness. X

Vine House Parfum

Love Story

Love Story

Love Story

7.5ml eau de parfum

FAMILY:  WOODY SPICY
TOP NOTES:  violet leaf, pink pepper, raspberry
HEART NOTES:  jasmine, Damask rose, geranium
BASE NOTES:  cinnamon, clove, tonka, saffron

This Love Story begins with dreamy powdered violet leaf, juicy raspberry and a frisson of pink pepper that captivate us; alluring to the point of intoxicating. And when we follow its trail, the feeling is compounded further by a perfect floral heart and spicy-sweet undercurrent, intriguing and bewitching in equal measure. X

Ancient Frankincense

Ancient Frankincense

Ancient Frankincense

50g Candle

FAMILY: ORIENTAL BALSAMIC
TOP NOTES: pink pepper oil, elemi resin
HEART NOTES: frankincense resin, myrrh resin, labdanum resin
BASE NOTES: pine resin, cypress oil, patchouli oil

 

Close your eyes, inhale deeply, and you are instantly transported to winters past; to a time in which life was simpler, when ancient incense, spices, woods and resins were burned to ward off the dark, the cold and provide a beacon of hope and light. And in doing so, the most magical and enduring of wintry scents came to be – resins and spices that, to this day, are associated with this time of year. X

Ruth Mastenbroek Perfumer London

Rebel County

Rebel County

Rebel County

50g Candle

FAMILY: AMBER ORIENTAL
TOP NOTES: lemon balm, wild herbs
HEART NOTES: hot amber
BASE NOTES: driftwood, Irish oak, white musk

 

Rebellion, freedom and passion are the three key ingredients in this candle’s scent, inspired by the tales told by Mastenbroek’s grandmother, May. A proud Irishwoman, May would tell a young Ruth stories of how County Cork, her beloved home, was the last stronghold against the Vikings and later, its people defiant in the face of the English, earning Cork the nickname Rebel County. Mastenbroek has deftly interpreted this with freely fresh and wild herbs, hot headed, fiery amber, and oceanic notes that pay tribute to Cork’s spectacular coastline. X
