Jill Stuart Crystal Bloom Eternal Dazzle

06/06/16 09:25:30 (4 comments)


The collection Crystal Bloom by Jill Stuart will be supplemented with a third fragrance, Crystal Bloom Eternal Dazzle, in June 2016, launched after the editionsCrystal Bloom from 2014 and Crystal Bloom Snow from 2015. The collection is inspired by the beauty of diamonds, their irresistible glow and cutting light effect. For the first fragrance, Crystal Bloom, perfumer Christine Nagel used notes that provide freshness and a floral-icy effect. The second fragrance, Crystal Bloom Snow, was created in the same direction, and accentuated gentle and icy powdery floral notes.
It is a diamond-shaped flacon crowned with an unusual cap decorated with Swarovski crystals that shape a bouquet of three flowers, in which one can find the new fragrance Crystal Bloom Eternal Dazzle. The body of the bottle has a golden-yellow color which leaves the impression of bottled sun light. Bathing in the sun, the new edition retains a floral-fruity composition by accentuating bright yellow chords (lemon, mimosa, ylang-ylang, buttercup, osmanthus, sunny/solar notes).
The composition of Crystal Bloom Eternal Dazzle opens with citrusy flavors of lemon, bergamot, cassis, along with sweet pea, snowdrops and edelweiss. The heart of the composition is accentuated with solar notes combined with mimosa, magnolia, dahlia, buttercup, rose and peach, resting on a base of ylang-ylang, osmanthus, cedar, moss and lace chords.

Chanel Allure Homme Sport Cologne - Advertising Campaign by Jacob Sutton which Pushes the Limits!

by: Sandra Raicevic Petrovic

CHANEL pushes the limits in directing video clips and promoting their perfumes by offering a new type of interaction with fans of fragrances. At the same time they invite us to enjoy a special advertising campaign under the motto OWN THE EXPERIENCE in which besides three video ads, versions with 360° scope were created in which we can choose the corner of observation during the commercial.
"Step into the Allure Homme Sport universe with director Jacob Sutton who shares his vision and interpretation of an extreme fragrant experience."
Chanel also presents short films from the filing of all three commercials where we have the opportunity to hear the director, Jacob Sutton speaking about inspiration, visions, regions where he filmed the ads, and about actors of the advertising campaign. The focus lies on dynamics, fantastic shots showed in black and white technique and a dose of extremism, where the actors of the campaign test their limits and strengthen their spirit.

Special attention was paid to the men’s fragrance Allure Homme Sport Cologne from 2007 by launching the new advertising campaign in which Brazilian professional diverHugo Parisi, American professional skateboarder Adam Crigler and American actor Luke Grimes participate. The campaign offers three video clips (three ads) directed by director and photographer Jacob Sutton.
The main idea was to connect dynamics, danger, agility, speed and water as an inevitable part of each commercial. An accent is also placed on beautiful regions and nature which enrich each of Sutton’s shots.

INTERVIEW: HUGO PARISI
Hugo Parisi is a diver from Brazil. He states that diving is everything in his life, that he truly enjoys it. For the needs of the Chanel ad he dove for the first time from high rocks and in that way he pushed his limits. In the beginning it was very difficult for him, but the professionalism of the team encouraged him. Diving and shooting the ad campaign were an exceptional experience for him where he did his best and really enjoyed it.

INTERVIEW: LUKE GRIMES
Luke Grimes is an actor from Dayton, Ohio, who now lives in Los Angeles. He shot the campaign for Chanel in South Africa. He enjoyed the regions that he saw for the first time in his life, as well as working with the film crew. During the shooting, locations often changed from mountainous regions to the beach, so he is convinced that the campaign will look fantastic because of the variety of shots and beautiful nature.

INTERVIEW: ADAM CRIGLER
Adam Crigler has been a professional skateboarder for eight years. He enjoys extreme skateboarding and relay races. The advertising film was shot in Cape Town on the hills of Steenbras Dam. He enjoyed coming to this gorgeous place and excellent cooperation with the crew. 
ALLURE HOMME SPORT Cologne. Slide 360° Experience - CHANEL
Three talented men in this campaign present and convey the spirit of Allure Homme Sport Cologne. The campaign takes us through three different sports - diving, horse-riding and skateboarding - by accentuating masculinity and energy in an elegant and modern way. Allure Homme Sport provides the feeling of temptation and attraction in a dynamic manner. Allure Homme Sport Cologne is more than perfume. Its composition is an encouragement of well-being according to Chanel.
The perfumer of the composition is Jacques Polge who combines extremely dynamic and sunny citrus scents of mandarin, lemon, grapefruit and bergamot, warming them with Manila elemi resin and spicy-green shades of lovage, leaving a sophisticated and elegant signature of cedar and white musk in the base. It was created as a citrusy interpretation of woody-spicy Chanel Allure Homme Sport.

CEDRO E VINHO de Charne Essência

Perfumista : Fabiano Js


Diminui o ritmo de aquisições e comecei a tentar entender meu gosto ou desgosto por perfumes. Durante essa jornada , que começou aos meus quinze anos, época em que.descobri que seria um amante dos liquidos preciosos e seus lindos frascos, per durando atė hoje, passando por uma faculdade de farmacia em que foquei cosméticos e perfumes, passou pela especialização e culminou  no que sou hoje, nos meus conceitos. Nao acho interessante destacar aspectos cientificos mas, o amor pelos preciosos deu-me pequena bagagem para opinar sobre as.produções da perfumaria mundial.  Hoje quero dar minha singela indicação a esse precioso da foto. Cedro e vinho da Charme Essência que me encantou e me encanta cada dia mais. Quando o perfumista Fabiano me mandou a amostra eu me deletei logo de inicio porem sou do tipo que amostra tem que ser de grande quantidade , ver o comportamento em cada uma das ocasiões, climas e fatores que fazem a diferença. Fui presenteado pela empresa, que criou minha linha exclusiva e que posso.afirmar, de cátedra, fizeram um trabalho exímio. Pensei, logo que usei C&V "sera que só eu sinto esse aroma que me anima e alegra?". Entao, com dor no coração fui mostrando a amigos e colegas, colhendo impressões, me informando. Em um caso especifico a pessoa nao se agradou, infelizmente ele é acometido de uma doenća que muda o cheiro da pele e , realmente, nao colou! As impressões me deixaram ainda mais intrigado. Cheiro de suco de uva? Cheiro de madeira molhada? Cheiro de incenso? AMADEIRADO OU ADOCICADO? Como essa composicao pode ser tao simples e tao enigmatica ao mesmo tempo? 
Um dia ,comentei com esse perfumista que ,suas fragrancias eram apuradas e nao facilmente cairia no gosto popular. Ele me respondeu, resumidamente, que nao buscava a popularidade e sim o ato de criar, algo concepcional, algo que sempre terá apreciadores por ser "diferenciado". Divagações a parte, fiz três aplicações dessa maravilha  em tempos diferentes para entender as fases desse oriental amadeirado masculino com detalhes quase frutados.
É inevitável perceber o aroma de vinho tinto suave, diria de boa safra, se entendesse do assunto. Ele se mistura com uma fruta que me lembrou muito mesmo umas laranjinhas que eu comprava na feira pra comer, saboroso, gustativo, simplista.
É uma fase que evolui rapido, nisto entendi os homens que provaram e perguntaram se a fragrancia era feminina. A saída é convidativa, fala de alegria , de vontade de viver, de estilo e festas regadas a salto alto e homens bem vestidos. A segunda fase é algo que deixa C&V enigmatico, ele fica com aquele vinho leve e parece incensar, um incenso doce amadeirado e sensual. A mirra grita em meio ao amadeirado e o vinho que, agora, lembra algo mais maduro, seguro, determinado. É soberbo o adentrar no amadeirado de um aroma inigualável de patchouli. Um dia perguntaram, nesse grupo, como eu poderia descrever um perfume por notas. Pra a pessoa em questāo, o uso do eu científico se sobressai aos costumes e ao conhecimento adquirido na vivencia. Reconheço patchouli ,âmbar, almíscar e vetiver  em qualquer fragrancia que conte-los e que tenham como objetivo um destaque dos mesmos. Nesse ponto eu digo que chegamos ao jeito Fabiano de criar. Um coração que é puro mistério,  oriental no sentido amplo da palavra. Imagine-se em um local místico oriental, onde a mirra exala em meio a bancos rústicos de madeira de cedro e taças cheias de vinho em cada mesa. O aroma do arranjo de sua mesa exala um adocicado das.folhas secas que servem de base para uma vela perfumada onde voce identifica a.deliciosa presença de uma fruta. Esse é o coração de C&V. Um convite às noites agradáveis em um local único. Em seus ultimos suspiros C&V acha um espaço especial para mesclar um toque de madeira que sempre esteve lá mas resolveu ser coadjuvante no gran finale. Termina assim, amadeirado envolvido entre um  patchouli e resquícios de mirra. Imagino-me saindo desse elegante local que descrevi, com o.casaco impregnado do aroma da mirra e da vela frutada. Caminhando, sigo por um arboredo outonal com folhas secas e a madeira orvalhada. 
 Só nao vou descrever o beijo por que vai ficar gay de mais.
Amei, recomendo conhecer... parabenizo o criador e a casa pelo tao fino bom gosto.
PS. Longevidade  e projecão. moderadas

OUD & BERGAMOT BY JO MALONE (2010)



Nose: Christine Nagel

Christine Nagel at her finest, no surprise she’s been chosen to inherit Ellena’s throne. A charming whiff of sophisticated, mellow, androgynous, hyper-modern, clean yet somehow “mysterious” and moody spiced Oriental orange-infused woods. This is Oud & Bergamot by Jo Malone, a refined, minimalist, very well conceived experiment around the contrast between the aromatic, luscious smokiness of oud and cedar (and suede, I think), and the graceful, pastel, zesty and slightly floral touches of bergamot and citrus, with a hint of cinnamon-like touch of sweet – just as in Fendi Theorema for women, also composed by Nagel. All done with an amazingly well-engineered weightless texture taken to the very extreme – basically, pure thin scented air. It feels like a perfect olfactive rendition of some abstract watercolour featuring harmonic drops and brush strokes of pale orange, pale brown, pale black. All smells even, smooth, airy and pale, yet totally “there” under your nose. It’s like smelling a linen shirt previously sprayed with a hypothetical “true” substantial version of Oud & Bergamot – this is how the actual Oud & Bergamot smells. It’s there, and yet it isn’t. Like the suspended memory of a scent, more than an actual scent, and yet it’s there materializing under your nose. Fascinating to say the least. And it’s all done so terribly right, as all notes manage to smell crisp, smooth and clear, yet subtle.

The scent is very simple actually, basically a fairly linear and “white-ish” sort of musky-suede rendition of (synthetic) oud and cedar tinted with some orange and cinnamon. It’s the way Nagel made it that makes it so special. It takes some guts and skills to take these notes and turn them into an impalpable whiff of watercolour mist (I mean, it takes some guts to do it right and not end up with an ephemeral fart of a constipated princess). More than compelling and more than a scent, a little piece of minimalist art. Obviously not a “bomb”, very subtle but quite persistent, more than one may assume: somehow you smell it around yourself for hours and hours even if it seems disappearing from your skin soon. This close to smelling just dull and weak – and maybe it is, and I’m just overestimating it – but I find it just lovely.

NOIR EPICES BY FREDERIC MALLE (2000)





Nose: Michel Roudnitska

Noir Epices effortlessly fills the last spot on my personal chart of Malle’s fragrances - I mean the worst spot. The bottom of the barrel. I don’t get the “black” and ultimately I don’t even get the “spices” that much as well, or not as I would assume at least. I don’t want my spices laid on a corpse, and instead that’s basically how Noir Epices smells. “Carnal”, overdosed nuances of metallic rose-geranium and a nondescript sultry musky note blended with a ridicolously loud concoction of spices and waxy floral-citrus notes, finally infused with a really bizarre and discomforting sort of sugary-watery vein, almost musty and milky. Sounds messy, eh? That’s how it smells, too. It’s loud, vile, ultimately a bit cheap as well, as besides being cacophonously blended, the materials don’t really seem that top-notch either. As hours pass it gets a bit better as it tames down a little at least, becoming slightly sweeter and smoother, but still remaining basically the same awkward and screechy mishmash of musk, soap, wax, spices, expired citronellol candles and blood-stained rusty metal bars. I’m genuinely sorry to sound so tight-butted and unable of getting the magic here, but I find this blatantly atrocious on every level.

4/10

PENTACHORD VERDANT BY ANDY TAUER (2011)



Nose: Andy Tauer

Pentachord Verdant shares the same issue I personally detect in many fragrances by Andy Tauer. They’re intellectually very fascinating and thrilling, they’re exceedingly evocative and realistic, they succeed very well in keeping a decided, peculiar sort of artificial vein well combined with a truthful organic nature; but they don’t smell like something I would wear. Ever. Or that I think anyone would want to wear. Tauer hasn’t admittedly a formal training, and while that is surely a plus when it comes to creative freedom and composing “out of the box”, it sometimes turns into a disadvantage for him. And that is the case for Pentachord Verdant in my opinion.

Pentachord Verdant is basically a tremendously intriguing “smell” which brilliantly evokes the smell of damp grass, wet soil, freshly-cut branches, all with a sort of dark, cold, sharp feel, brilliantly combined with an artificial sort of quite heavy oily-gasoline greyish note that smells basically like someone pouring fuel on grass – You and Your Lawnmower, a Romance by Andy Tauer. As usually with most of Tauer's fragrances, the smell is quite sharp and almost harsh at first, stuffed with cold salty ambroxan and a thin, cutting layer of nondescript metallic spices giving the natural side of the fragrance that peculiar “artificial trim” which characterizes many scents by this nose. I don’t get any tobacco actually, to me it’s all a cascade of nose-tingling spicy sharp greenness seasoned with steamy gasoline. The evolution is just more about the volume decreasing, but I detect no particular transitions or movements – just the same identical thing losing strength and projection as hours pass (but that’s fine, and it actually gets almost pleasant after a while).

And, well... you may guess my conclusion (there’s not much else to say about the notes or the evolution, so we can skip to the end). I can’t help it, call me a tight-ass “classicist”, but this is too much on the very extreme fence between a perfume and a smell – not a stink, just an experimental smell which has little to do with perfumery. I mean, it’s not that any smell can automatically turn into a perfume just by a linguistic transition. It’s just too edgy, unstructured and crude to work as a fragrance in my opinion. It’s great to spray it and smell it, it’s amazingly realistic and it’s fantastic how it evokes the combined smell of wet grass, soil and gasoline, truly a hyperrealistic portrait of Mr. Smith’s Sunday morning mowing the lawn. But why on Earth shall I want to smell like that?
