Reading Time: 4 minutes

Every new year comes with many new things. And of course the Fragrance industry also provides its contribution. Here is our Fragrance review on the most interesting New launches you definitely do not want to miss!

Hermes Bel Ami Vetiver

Bel Ami Vetiver Hermes

This new fragrance belongs to the “Classics” collection and it is a reinterpretation of the original Bel Ami fragrance launched in …
The originality of this new creation is not really on the smoky-woody part, for us is definitely in the top notes. A perfect alliance between the sparkling of Citrus notes and the sharpness of spices. Jean-Claude Ellena presents a very elegant signature for this fragrance. Aligned with the extraordinary quality of Vetiver in the heart of the fragrance, there is a strong yet subtle leather note that wraps the olfactive structure in a glove of timeless refinement. The Bel Ami flacon gets a new label, this time in a beautiful mahogany color. Another interesting fact is the Hermes logo embossed on the label paper. Super elegant.

Rose de Chloé

Rose de Chloé
Sometimes you do not need to invent the wheel to propose an amazing fragrance. And this is the case of Roses de Chloé. By rediscovering one of the most emblematic perfumery themes, Chloé presents a beautiful Damascena Rose dressed up for sophistication and modernity. The Rose theme is one of the most difficult theme in perfumery as it was used and re-used thousand of times. Here, a very beautiful Rose plays with the richness of Magnolia flower and the clean-cut of White-musks and dry ambery-woody notes. A very parisian elegance with a Cosmopolitan twist.

Patou pour Homme

Patou pour Homme
This new fragrance by the legendary French House deserves to be highlighted for two magnificent reasons. First because it is Jean Patou. When Patou launches a new fragrance, all fans get highly enthousiastic. It is an event. The news of a new creation is a promise for unexpected delights. And this is the second reason for which Patou pour homme deserves this highlight. The first minutes of this fragrance reveal an amazing Green Galbanum note. Being one of the hardest ingredients to work with, Galbanum requires bravery and true knowledge of the perfumery creation. When a master perfumer dares to explore this kind of note, there is no middle of the road. Either is bad or it is truly great. And here, Jean Patou successfully delivered the dream.

Balmain Extatic

Extatic Balmain
Balmain got in the past years a true creative revival in terms of fashion. We were wondering when it would come to Fragrances. And here is the answer: Extatic. Between Glamour-Rock and timeless elegance, the new feminine fragrance by Balmain captures the edge of the Fashion House. The first notes are surprisingly water-mouthering. A modern juicy Rose splashed with a Nachi accord set the stage. Modern textured woods with a hint of leather signs the fragrance with depth and richness.

Laine de Verre

Laine de Verre Serge Lutens

New opus in the series Eaux de Serge lutens, Laine de Verre plays with extremes. If you would have thought about the most extreme combination of notes, you would probably pick up this one. Laine de Verre is a contrasted fragrance. The Metallic combination of Aldehydes and Citrus notes clashes into the soft aura of white Musks and soft woods. It is minimalistic in the approach but you will get a true olfactive explosion of senses. Serge Lutens is a creator as no one and he proves it once again.
