Jean Paul Gaultier: Classique
This one’s gone wild. JPG is heading into the heart of an urban jungle, with the body-bottles displaying exuberant foliage and exotic blossoms in this edition. Fresh and floral with a hint of vanilla… bliss!
Shay Rouge: Anfasic Dokhoon
Inspired by Emerati Art and French elegance, the perfume is launched exclusively for Galleries Lafayette, Dubai. The new age master perfumer, Tabbach of Anfasic Dokhoon (meaning breathing incense), is an Italian-Syrian national who was brought up in France where she gained experience of perfume making.
I had the opportunity of attending the private launch last night and must say the perfume is a rare blend of Middle East’s rich attar tradition and Western Europe’s sophistication- A one off for my fragrance collection this summer!
Truth Or Dare: Madonna
Love her, hate her but you just cant ignore her. One might argue that controversy’s favorite child, is past her prime but everything about this pop culture icon is still intriguing: from her fashion line to her new boyfriends to her world tours- The woman is here to stay.
She says, “I have always been obsessed by fragrance and for years wanted to create something personal that was an expression of me, but that other people could relate to as well. Something classical and timeless and yet modern. My oldest memory of my mother is her perfume. I carry it with me everywhere. She always smelled like gardenias and tuberose, an intoxicating mixture [that was] feminine and mysterious. I wanted to re-create this scent, but with something fresh and new about it as well. Something honest and yet daring — hence the name Truth or Dare”.
4) Pulse: Beyonce
Man I love this woman! The new Pulse is reflective of her energy and powerful feminine charm. Now who wouldn’t want a bottle of that? Main notes include citrus and floral gourmand, anchored by Beyonce’s favorite flower, the orchid.
5) Love Fury: Nine West
The fragrance opens with Rose Bud FirNat, mimosa absolute, mandarin and red berries pulp. If that doesn’t sound tempting, perhaps the uber chic stiletto shaped bottle top does! Since Mandarin is the top trend in fragrance this summer, it can well be the hottest new addition to our closets this summer!
