Reading Time: 4 minutesAs a child you probably watched your mother put on makeup. The process looked elegant, sophisticated and grown up. You longed to brush and shade your face in the same manner, but when you bravely decided to give it a shot yourself, the result was not the flawless, beautiful look your mother got.

Louis Vuitton is launching its fragrance activity in September 2016. At last!

Reading Time: 4 minutesHere is probably the longest and the most awaited fragrance project of all: Parfums Louis Vuitton. I do remember the first time a fragrance project was mentioned to the malletier, it was almost 10 years ago. At that time, everybody would say that Louis Vuitton did not need a brand territory extension such as fragrances. The context at that time tend to push certain brands to a massification of their offer, and fragrances represented for some of them a way to reach critical mass.

They hired François Demachy, former technical perfumer at Chanel. With his know-how and mastery of raw materials, LVMH would…

In 2016, 17 later, Sisley reinvents Sisleÿa Global Anti-Aging to become the new Sisleÿa L’Integral Anti-Âge. Why this  evolution? Sisleÿa does not only fights the visible signs of aging (natural process and external conditions) but now it also includes a way to fight the causes related to behavioral aging. Basically, all the choices we do (smoking, alcohol…) the stress at work, over-exposure to the sun, etc, etc… are also major causes of aging….
