Nearing two centuries of fragrance creation, Guerlain recently released their latest in the Aqua Allegoria family, Nerolia Vetiver — a sparkling scent inspired by the Italian island of Ischia and its sun-drenched landscape. As if this glorious fragrance wasn’t enough, the Maison has taken things up several notches by now making these scents refillable … and that’s just for starters.
When I received these latest launches from Givenchy to try out, and I immediately dove in. First of all, as a long-time fan of this brand, I had a gut feeling that I wouldn’t be disappointed and spoiler alert: I wasn’t.
Autumn Vibes is the latest addition to the Maison Margiela Replica range, and with a provenance hailing from Montréal (my home base) plus its description of ‘woody trail & red leaves‘ (the forest is one of my happy places), my connection with this fragrance becomes somewhat personal. But even without that, I’m definitely here for the scent …
CHANEL’s iconic N°5 is celebrating 100 years of celebrity and is the inspiration behind this year’s 2021 Holiday Makeup Collection. The classic golden-yellow hue of the fragrance has been transformed into makeup for face & eyes, while red — the very colour of life — adorns lips and nails. Of course, there’s a little bit of sparkle thrown in as well to help you “zhuzh” up your looks … done in CHANEL’s inimitably elegant style, naturally.
“L’Art & La Matière is a collection of olfactory masterpieces for true lovers of all things beautiful, crafted by the hands of the House of Guerlain Perfumers”
Guerlain began with perfume and continues dominating in that field to this day; to rebrand their Haute Parfumerie Collection for 2021, the House drew inspiration from within their own archives and in the process created a beautiful union between fragrance & art … while adding two new scents to the range, since they were at it. I recently had the pleasure of attending a private preview of this new collection and I can sum it up in one word: exquisite.
