March 31, 2009

Elle Perfume YSLLike Young, Sexy, Lovely, this perfume is designed for the younger fragrance user and it full of oomph and pizzazz! Created by perfumers, Oliver Crespe and Jacques Cavallier, it’s a modern, sophisticated fragrance, quite in tune with today’s trends. It debuted in 2008 and quickly gained a following. It is unique and will appeal to those who like something a bit different.

When you first apply Elle perfume, there’s an exhuberant burst of bright peony with a tang of citron, moderately sweet rose, and, then, softer notes of jasmine and freesia, with a crush of pink berries and a bit of lychee. As the fragrance warms on your skin, it mellows and earthy patchouli and soft amber blend with the woodsy notes of vetiver. This fragrance lasts for hours and gradually becomes more sensuous and languid. Excitable at first, it quiets slowly to an inviting purr. It can be worn for daytime activities and is intriguing for the office. As it slowly develops, it will become a perfect evening companion.

Elle is attractively captured in a striking bright pink and gold container. Tall and sleek, it is perfect for this unique and a bit unpredictable fragrance. The YSL logo is pink and is inscribed on the golden middle of the container. Bright and urbane, it will be an attractive addition to the dressing table of any hip young sophisticate.

One fan says “…It usually takes me a while to decide on a new fragrance. This one was INSTANT love! I controlled myself long enough so that I could see how it smelled after a half hour and it just kept getting better. I love the cedar notes…”. Another comments, “I just tried this fragrance and was immediately hooked. I love the warm woody notes with the floral. My husband …says I smell fabulous wearing it.” This sexy, sultry fragrance really is a turn-on for some men and one recipient of the masculine attention it brings says, “I like wearing this to bed…I won’t use it full force at work – it could be a little too sexy.”  Another fan says”…it’s so unique. Thick and spicey, yet feminine and sweet. I wear it when I what to feel sultry.” Recalls one young man dreamily, “It reminds me of a morning in Maui, a breeze blew over us, warm and moist, with a faint scent of flowers, …and, then, there was that night…” and his voices drifts off, remembering. Elle is full of mystery and romance – something intriguing that will always bring him back for more.

Love and Luck Perfume – Ed Hardy

March 30, 2009

The creative art of tattoo icon Don Ed Hardy is immortalized by designer Christian Audigier. Inspired by Ed Hardy’s craft, Christian Audigier collaborated with New Wave to put together a suite of fragrances that brings out a unique essence that is distinctively artistic and deep – a playful contrast of culture and a perfect balance of casual elegance. The Christian Audigier brand has a remarkable roster of licensing agreements for a multitude of items ranging from fragrances, casual wear, intimate apparel, fashion accessories, remote control planes and even energy drinks!

The Ed Hardy fragrances were launched in 2008. It bested top fragrances in the market shortly after its release. According to Market Research Group, NPD, the Ed Hardy perfume collection topped the sales charts in 2008 with combined revenue of $10.3 million for the men’s and women’s scents. Following the success of Ed Hardy, a new line of fragrances was created – the Ed Hardy Love & Luck for Women and the Ed Hardy Love & Luck for Men. The new scents were designed by Adriana Medina and Olivier Gillotin, respectively.

Ed Hardy Love and Luck PerfumeEd Hardy Love & Luck Women’s Fragrance is a floral fruity gourmand that features the notes of bergamot, blood orange, red sake accord, black currant, pink peppercorn, nectarine, jasmine, forbidden plum, sensual musk, cedar wood, sandalwood and patchouli. It opens up with heady notes of citrus blossoms and a generous helping of pink peppercorns. The cocktail of scents is sprinkled with aromatic essence of Japanese sake wine that releases a burst of candy flavored air. It gradually fades into a nondescript smell of florals topped with musky undertones which is a tad arid on the dry down. The abundance of woodsy sweetness dominates in the early stages but doesn’t hold long. An avid perfumista commented, “I love this perfume it has a subtle sexuality and is so fresh! Perfect for going on an evening date, too nice for daytime wear and may be too light for a night out, but definitely gets noticed by people close by and is long lasting. The gift set with the 100 ml bottle, lotion and purse spray an exceptional buy.”

Ed Hardy Love and Luck Cologne for MenThe counterpart, Ed Hardy Love & Luck for Men is reminiscent of the night life in Tokyo – bold, lively and urbane. This contemporary scent is citrusy at first smell. It combines the notes of bergamot, citrus fruits, cardamom, absinth, sage, cypress, violet, musk, cedar, dark vetiver and agar wood. The smorgasbord of prolific bright scents radiates throughout. This summer-y fragrance is not at all mysterious and sexy but rather youthful and delicately soft. Further, the sillage is not as intense as the top notes. It leaves a subtle trail of masculine scent with hints of light fragrance that is comparable to a baby lotion.

The Ed Hardy Love & Luck fragrances are geared towards the young market. Its scent evokes the dynamic lifestyle of the youth. The packaging features Ed Hardy’s tattoo work: geisha art for the women and a stack of cards for the men.

Ed Hardy Love & Luck perfumes are available in .25 oz and 2.4 oz eau de parfum spray.

Paris Pont des Amours Perfume

March 27, 2009

paris-pont-des-amoursReign endless, Rose! For fair you are, Nor Heaven reserves a fairer thing.” These lines are from a poem, “A Rose Or Two”, by Herman Melville. The beauty of roses inspired Yves Saint Laurent when he created the fragrance, Paris. Eventually, the House of Saint Laurent began releasing a new fragrance every Spring, whose floral beginnings were rooted in the original Paris. Each scent is different but there are still lingering memories of the parent, with its huge bouquet of roses, violet, mimosa and jasmine.

Each fragrance debuts in the traditional, dimpled glass bottle with a gold or pink cap. If you are not well-versed in the creations of the House of Yves Saint Laurent perfumes, you may mistake one fragrance for another as they do have a similar appearance. Some of the perfumes are clear or pale golden in color, while others have a delicate pink or pale green tint. Each fragrance is based in flowers but just like the variety of bouquets in a florist’s shop, the arrangement and type of blossoms used will vary.

Paris Pont des Amours is a newcomer, just appearing in March of 2008, inspired by lovers and their rendezvous  near the River Seine. It whispers of romance, holding hands in the moonlight, laughing together in the rain. When first applied, there is a burst of roses with soft violet and muted jasmine. As it’s warmed by the sunshine, soft notes of amber and musk appear with a delicate spice of carnation.

This fragrance can be worn everyday but it’s wonderful for special occasions; like a wedding or an outdoor party. Its flowery tones and sweet, fresh fragrance whispers of romance and tender moments. Says one admirer, “I was so happy to find this…Pont des Amours is …mostly rose. That’s fine with me. I wanted “a mostly rose” fragrance that didn’t smell powdery, jammy, cooked, or sickeningly sweet. Like the original, I get fresh rose, along with those pretty violets, right from the beginning. The jasmine is quite subdued (again, the way I like it) and the carnation is the merest hint of spice to this sweet, summery pink rose. Drydown is very gentle and enjoyable…”

Most women, who enjoy theses fragrances, have adored Paris and usually compare the later scents to their flashy precursor. Comments one, “…It is lovely and very true to its name of  Springtime. It is reminiscent of the original Paris but lighter and not so sharp. A softer, more floral version. Not overpowering at all but noticeable.”

Men also enjoy the light femininity of Paris Pont des Amours and are intrigued by the fragrance. Says one, “Fresh, sweet, sensual. My girlfriend has this; she has a craze for roses. She has the classic version of Paris and when it came on the market, she got it. When she wears it, she smells like roses and I love her more. Obviously this Paris Pont des Amours is a fragrance of romance, emotions, passion and desire. For me this is a fragrance of love.” Now who could ask for more?

Paris perfume Yves Saint Laurent

March 24, 2009

Paris Perfume Yves Saint LaurentYves Saint Laurent dedicated Paris to the city he loved in 1983. Inspired by the City of Eternal Love, this perfume is a romantic symphony, a perfect orchestration of 232 different fragrance notes. It’s like a lavish bouquet of pink roses and delicate violets, whose buds unfold with a burst of fragrance. The rose notes are followed by softer tones of iris, mayflower, and mimosa with a touch of orange blossom and bergamot. The rose bouquet mellows a bit and you’ll notice the honeyed fragrance of ripened peaches and fruit, with complex, mellow notes of amber and musk.

There’s a tale that persists about Russian perfumer, Sophia Grojsman, who was working on this extravagant fragrance. Hurrying home, late one night in Paris, she noticing that she was being followed by a man. When she increased her pace, trying to elude him, her pursuer called out, “Hey lady, I am not following you: I’m just trying to smell your perfume!” She often retold this story saying, “That was the moment I realized that I had it.” Saint Laurent always associated this perfume with pink roses and the city of Paris. Reportedly, he had chosen the name before the scent was even developed.

When it was introduced, Paris became an immediate hit. Mothers, daughters, and grandmothers wore it and the fragrance of roses was everywhere. It is a very vibrant, feminine fragrance but it is not a ‘girly girl’ scent. It is daring and romantic, effusive not retiring,  bold and not shy. It’s a bright pink coat which stands out in a gray crowd; it shouts, “Look at Me!’’ A little of this fragrance goes a long way – this is not a scent to bathe in or it will knock everyone over the first hour or two. Paris puts real meaning in the saying, A little bit goes a long way!’

The rose-violet tones of Paris are based on ionones and damascones which are aroma substances, which were discovered in 1893. They were isolated in 1967 and were first used in a rose fragrance, Guerlain’s  Nahema. The damascones were used heavily in the legendary fragrance, Nombre Noir, and along with other ionones contributed to the numerous rose fragrances of the 1980s. Violets contain natural ionones and along with their woodsy, fruity undertones add a great deal to this perfume.

The fragrance is captured in a rounded, clear, dimpled glass bottle with the elegant logo of Yves Saint Laurent and ‘Paris’ inscribed in gold. It’ sealed with a black and bright pink cap. This is a perfume that’s both dynamic and complex –the essence of romance.
