Van Cleef & Arpels will launch First Love in April:
The women’s scent is a floral oriental developed by Christophe Raynaud of Symrise. Its formula is composed of a blend of grain of paradise, osmanthus and mandarin at the top, and notes of peony, ylang-ylang and orchid at the heart. Notes of amber crystal and vanilla sap feature in the base.
Van Cleef & Arpels First Love will be available in 60 and 100 ml Eau de Toilette. (via cosmeticnews)
More on the Summer Splash trio from Marc Jacobs, which will be released in 10 oz bottles. Despite the name, the fragrances will come with spray atomizers:
Rain, concocted by IFF's Laurent LeGuernec…opens with top notes of wet cut grass, wild strawberry, clementine zest and dewy cypress. Its heart is of tropical passion flower, sunshine flower and white orchid, and its drydown is of beech amber, tree moss, teak wood and musk.
Grass, with a juice by Annie Buzantian…[has] top notes are of freshly snapped snow peas and lush green accords; its heart is of wildflowers and white muguet, and its drydown is of soft woods and dewy musks.
Cotton, by Carlos Vinals….[has] fresh linen breezes and liquid oxygen mixed with white peach, citrus mandarin, orange and bergamot; its heart comprises the proprietary Marc T Signature Accord, cotton flower, lavandin and lily of the valley, and its drydown is of cotton musk, smooth white suede, rich sandalwood and blond woods.
Tom Ford's next fragrance release for Estee Lauder will be a body oil spray that reinterprets the original Azurée:
That new creation is built around a tiare milk accord that comprises Tahitian gardenia petals mixed with coconut and orange blossoms.
And look for the freestanding Tom Ford collection, including a new fragrance, in the fall. (both above via Women's Wear Daily)
Lancôme will launch two new rose fragrances this year: La Collection Mille et Une Rose and Tresor Sheer Rose. (via Women's Wear Daily) I have spoken to a Lancome rep and I am 99% sure that the correct name is not “Mille et Une Rose” but the lovely and currently very hard to get “2000 et Une Rose”, especially since the other “La Collection” fragrances have all been reissues…stay tuned! Update: per a reader who was recently in the Lancome Institut in Paris, it will be called “Mille et Une Rose”, but is definitely the same fragrance as “2000 et Une Rose”. Update 1/07: see a review of Lancome Mille et Une Roses.
