Yesterday saw the global launch of Christian Louboutin‘s debut trio of fragrances and a new beauty boutique in London’s Selfridges.
The new boutique in Selfridges features the brands largest application station. Louboutin says “I wanted to create an ‘ecrin de la beauté’, inspired by ecrin du bijoux or a jewel box for beauty, where women can discover beauty in a precious and intimate environment. I wanted to create a space where women could enjoy themselves and feel empowered to take ownership of their image.”
The three fragrances are: Bikini Questa Sera, Tornade Blonde and Trouble in Heaven.
Bikini Questa Sera, with notes of white night flowers, jasmine and tuberose, “evokes the heat of the day, sun on hot skin, the voluptuousness of the beach that doesn’t let go, even as the moon gives way to the stars”
Tornade Blonde is a rose fragrance described as “the scent of love and adventure” and is a “feminine and potent scent”. Other notes include cassis, and sweet violet.
Trouble in Heaven is “a fragrance that lights the fire, like a second skin of perfect iris, patchouli and tonka absolut. This is a scent that is both intimate and overt, it intrigues and raises heart beats.
“I wanted these fragrances to enhance an aspect of a woman’s personality, or perhaps reveal something about her that no one knew before. I want to give women the means to express themselves and to delight in their femininity.” said Louboutin.
The bottles were designed by architect Thomas Heatherwick, who amongst other things, designed the Olympic Torch for London 2012.
