SCENTSATIONAL

Re-en­ter­ing the per­fume world af­ter 15 years, sto­ried fine jew­eller Tif­fany & Co. has in­tro­duced an epony­mous fra­grance that em­bod­ies the beloved brand’s strong trade­mark and her­itage. A sparkling flo­ral musk housed in a glass fla­con carved like a sig­na­ture Tif­fany di­a­mond, the rich juice fea­tures the slight­est tint of blue and mixes notes of man­darin, patchouli, and musk with a pre­cious iris-flower heart. The iris’ as­so­ci­a­tion with the jew­ellery house dates back to the turn of the 20th cen­tury: It was an ex­trav­a­gant iris-shaped di­a­mond brooch that earned Tif­fany the grand prize at a world’s fair held in Paris in 1900. At the house of Gucci, cre­ative di­rec­tor Alessan­dro Michele has put his stamp on his first-ever fra­grance for the lux­ury Ital­ian la­bel, Gucci Bloom. Blos­som­ing notes of In­dian tuberose and jas­mine play with Chi­nese hon­ey­suckle for the ul­ti­mate pow­dery-flo­ral ol­fac­tory ex­pe­ri­ence. As for the bot­tle, Michele’s sig­na­ture, granny-chic aes­thetic is re­flected in the retro square shape and lac­quered vin­tage-pink porce­lain. Last but not least, de­signer Gior­gio Ar­mani has pulled in­spi­ra­tion from his own per­sonal love story for his lat­est Em­po­rio Ar­mani fra­grance en­deav­our, Be­cause It’s You. The ad­dic­tive, fruity-flo­ral un­folds with tan­ta­liz­ing rasp­berry, neroli, and rose ab­so­lute, and se­duces with a mag­netic trail of vanilla and musk. Two in­ter­twined rings on the bot­tle cap, the same ring de­sign that Ar­mani him­self still wears to this day, seal this fra­grant tale of amour.

Tif­fany & Co Eau de Par­fum is avail­able at Tif­fany stores, Gucci Bloom Eau de Par­fum is avail­able at Sephora, and Em­po­rio Ar­mani Be­cause It’s You Eau de Par­fum is avail­able at ar­mani-beauty.ca.

DE­SIGNER FO­CUS

Lancôme has once again called on Paris-bred de­signer Olympia Le-Tan for a lim­ited-edi­tion makeup col­lec­tion. Known for her red-car­pet-sta­ple, ar­ti­sanal book-cover clutches, the fash­ion dar­ling has brought her play­ful, colour­ful aes­thetic in full force to her se­quel col­lab­o­ra­tion. The vin­tage-lov­ing Le-Tan was drawn to ex­plore Lancôme’s archives, and be­came charmed by the beauty house’s orig­i­nal logo, the Chéru­bin, an an­gel fig­ure cho­sen by founder Ar­mand Petit­jean in 1935. Now re­belled out in 1950s pin-up fash­ion (very à la Le-Tan), the nos­tal­gic sym­bol sits front and cen­tre. Aptly named Olympia’s Won­der­land, the 16-piece of­fer­ing is a oneof-a-kind makeup play­ground with an off­beat Parisian chic: a multi-pur­pose palette sheathed in em­broi­dered cot­ton that could eas­ily be mis­taken for one of Le-Tan’s minaudière clutches, three cult-clas­sic L’Ab­solu Rouge lip­sticks re­shaped as lips, and much more. The Lancôme x Olympia Le-Tan col­lec­tion is avail­able at lan­come.ca
