NA­TURE ’S GRANDEUR Pre­cious as gold and as­tound­ing in its anti-ageing pow­ers, the Vanilla plan­i­fo­lia con­tin­ues to trans­form women’s com­plex­ions with the new Sublim­age L’Ex­trait. By Li Ying Lim. G O L D

low­ing in pu­rity and in­tense light, the “green di­a­mond,” or Vanilla plan­i­fo­lia, is at the very core of the Chanel Sublim­age. Har­vested in the harsh­est en­vi­ron­ments – the wild precipices in Mada­gas­car, to be ex­act – this par­tic­u­lar species of Vanilla is the anti-ageing war­rior of this skin­care range pre­cisely for its re­silience and thriv­ing force in the face of ex­treme con­di­tions. ut of all the cre­ations that ex­ist in this skin-re­gen­er­a­tive col­lec­tion, the new L’Ex­trait is specif­i­cally cre­ated for in­tense re­cov­ery. Tak­ing from the en­tire Vanilla plan­i­fo­lia – fruit and flower – to ren­der “sub­lime skin,” L’Ex­trait is an in­ten­sive treat­ment for se­ri­ously rav­aged skin. The for­mula works on the “life fac­tors” of the skin that are re­spon­si­ble for all the ageing signs such as wrin­kles, un­even skin tone, and the loss of firm­ness, ra­di­ance, and mois­ture. The En­riched Plan­i­fo­lia PFA awak­ens the dor­mant cells in the skin to stay ac­tive and vi­va­cious – all es­sen­tial to a firm, lu­mi­nous com­plex­ion. ast but not least, plant stem cells from the Vanilla plan­i­fo­lia leaves churn out ac­tive mol­e­cules that will kick-start the skin’s nat­u­ral heal­ing prow­ess. Through biomimet­ics tech­nol­ogy, the tex­ture of the plant stem cells change into one that is akin to epi­der­mal cells, and are able to fuse seam­lessly with the skin to make ab­sorp­tion ef­fort­less. An in­fu­sion of flow­ers en­velopes all th­ese incredible ex­tracts and cells. Th­ese vanilla flow­ers are ex­tracted through a process in­spired by the clas­sic en­fleurage tech­nique – dry­ing the flow­ers and then stir­ring in an oil bath for three days, dur­ing which the essence of the flow­ers are then trans­ferred into the oil. etails mat­ter at Chanel. Not quite like fluid, and nei­ther does it feel as em­balm­ing as a cream, the L’Ex­trait de­fies all no­tions with a very orig­i­nal for­mula as well as tex­ture. Of course, apart from the il­lu­mi­nat­ing and co­coon­ing re­sults, the scent – a del­i­cate sym­phony of pow­dery vanilla notes ex­tracted from the fruit – is just as pam­per­ing. It is the fi­nal touch that makes your skin feel and smell, sim­ply put, sub­lime. Chanel Sublim­age L'Ex­trait re­tails at RM1,580 at Chanel coun­ters na­tion­wide.
