For over 10 years Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb has been an exploding sensation of floral delight for passionate, energetic, independent and stylish women all around the globe. They asked us to create a Cinemagraph for this special anniversary evoking the power of rose and the release of that intoxicating scent on a warm summer rain shower they have managed to capture inside a bottle for us to enjoy day after day.

The scent which conjures up provocative femininity and a creative spirit is a modern interpretation of a female warrior, sweet but theatricality strong. A floral dance of freesia, jasmine, and centifolia rose balance with amber and patchouli make this perfume forever iconic.

NARCISO Eau de Parfum Poudrée

In a delicate skin toned bottle, fashion designer Narciso Rodriguez created a new perfume inspired by sensuality. The sensuality of skin, the delicacy of fragrance, the seduction of memory evoked through scent. True to the designer’s cosmopolitan and minimalistic style, the perfume has a mature femininity. It’s a sophisticated confidence which to me is above all things, sexy.

NARCISO Eau de Parfum Poudrée is velvety, powdery musk. A floral bouquet of Bulgarian rose and white jasmine balanced with a woody vetiver and cedar.

“With the original NARCISO fragrance, I wanted to create an extremely sexy fragrance. NARCISO Eau de Parfum Poudrée captures feminity and its core in an even more seductive way. It is both tender and powerful – and immediately addictive.”

– Narciso Rodriguez

Discovering the world of Diptyque

Celebrating 34 years of the french perfumer Diptyque.

Candles are a nightly ritual for me in our home. It not only perfumes the air into a story of that moment in time but it creates an ambiance that soothes my soul. Everyone looks more beautiful bathed in candle light and no room is complete without it. One of the best gifts I love to receive is that of a beautifully scented candle. Like in the above photograph, Kevin slipped this Fig Tree Diptyque candle under the Christmas tree for me, which I have saved to burn in June when figs are in season. It smells of summer and her grassiness, reminding me of my happiest moments in France each time I light it.

I recently had the opportunity to interview their very French and chic creative director, Myriam Badault, at a pop-up Bazaar at The Invisible Dog Art Center in Brooklyn. 34 is a signifiant number for the brand I came to learn. It is the address of the starting point for Diptyque, the original store in Paris at 34 Saint Germain founded over 50 years ago and which still stands to this day. The name Diptyque actually derived from the structure of this store’s two facing windows. Voilà! But that’s not all – I came to find out that this brand is so much more than beautiful perfume candles.

Founded in 1961 by three friends: a painter, a set designer and an interior designer, they originally created printed upholstery fabrics. Soon after opening the shop they expanded their wares to become a sort of stylish Parisian bazaar, selling found objects from around the world with amusements of discovery from their artistic endeavors. It wasn’t until 1963 they began producing candles and perfumes in 1968 which the house is so known for today.
