Happy in pink! The beauty launches in May 2021 are inspired by cherry flowers in blossom, sweet figs, bouquets of blooming magnolia, candied citrus fruits, cedar wood essence, and orange blossom corollas. From pastel pink to candy pink – embellish your bedroom, bathroom and living room with those amazingly beautiful fragrance bottles, soaps, tubes and pots.
Two years after the launch of the scented dry oil Huile Prodigieuse Florale, Nuxe presents a new blossoming love affair: Prodigieux Floral Le Parfum. For this new olfactory composition, perfumer Irène Farmachidi infused the delicate scent of Huile Prodigieuse Florale with some even more refreshing tones. Citrus head notes of grapefruit blend with lemon and calabrian bergamot. The heart of the scent rests on a bouquet of blooming magnolia and orange blossom corollas: a real floral firework. In the base, a voluptuous white musk adds depth and tone to create a sensual harmony with the skin.
From pastel pink to candy pink, the graduated spectrum of hues on its bottle (see picture below) increases in intensity, like the rising pleasure that brings a glow to our cheeks.
For a more intensified fragrance, start the day on a happy note with Prodigieux Floral Scented Body Gel. Its rich texture and fine foam cloak the body in a feel-good scented aura. Its botanical-origin cleansing base (coconut and wheat) is infused with sweet almond oil and botanical glycerin to gently cleanse the skin and leave it feeling soft and supple.
NAPOLEON’S FAVOURITE PERFUME HOUSE
Acclaimed master perfumer Francis Kurkdjian created the luminous and fruity Fleur de Figuier Fragrant Wellbeing Water for Roger&Gallet, a Parisiam perfume house founded in 1862. It was the official perfume supplier of French emperor Napoleon I. With sunny accents from natural distilled essences in the South of France, the sweet fig, fresh grapefruit and white musk create a floral fruity perfume, with a positively relaxing wellbeing benefit.
Each Roger&Gallet product is developed with distilled precious essences derived from natural ingredients around the world, evoking positive energy and happiness. The Fleur de Figuier collection also features a soap, a shower gel, a body lotion and a hand cream.
A POETIC AND JOYFUL FRAGRANCE
Nearly 30 years after Issey Miyake released L’Eau d’Issey, the brand is opening a new chapter in its story with a new fragrance for women. A Drop d’Issey invites you to dive into a new, imaginary dreamscape, providing a joyful interlude of poetry.
Lilac jealously guards its characteristic aroma, which can only be used in fragrances as a reconstitution. Perfumer Ane Ayo chose lilac and recomposed it as if the flower had been picked apart to deliver its subtle secrets. Lying at the heart of a wildly feminine composition, this lilac is in good company. Almond milk in the top notes sets a soft tone while a botanical accord reinforces the natural feel. To magnify the recomposed, sunny lilac, Ayo paired delicate orange blossom with rose to create a radiant bouquet with an uplifting floral heart. A touch of star anise echoes the anise-like facet of lilac. Jasmine lactones enhance the lilac’s solar, enveloping facet. The bouquet rests on a base of creamy musks, with vanillin and Ambrox amplifying the sensation of softness. The fragrance is musky, cozy, and reassuring, like a cocoon of comfort.
Todd Bracher designed the drop-shaped bottle by combining the simplicity of a perfect, poetic shape with the deliberately tactile facet of the bottle. His vision was to create a drop of water in a single piece.
NATURAL GREEN TEA EXTRACT FOR BODY AND MIND
With Rêve de thé (Tea Dream), a new body care line that focuses on a holistic treat, French beauty brand Nuxe gives you a moment of sensorial well-being. The moisturising effectiveness and the revitalising scent of green tea are combined in ultra-sensorial textures that beautify and nourish the skin. All the products contain a 100% natural green tea extract, a rich source of anti-oxidants. The scent of the six Rêve de thé products is both energising and revitalising: a fresh harmony of green tea, lifted in the head by sparkling and zesty notes of rhubarb and softened by a velvety base of musk and light wood.
The Revitalising Moisturising Milk (400ml) contains green tea enriched with a complex
of 7 sugars of 100% natural origin and diffuses 24-hour moisturising. Its silky texture is rapidly absorbed and its subtle scent gives you the revitalising kick-start for a good day.
The Revitalising Granular Scrub is a refreshing cocktail combining green tea extract with exfoliating bamboo grains. Massaged onto damp skin, this scrub removes dead skin cells and leaves the skin soft and revitalised.
The delicately scented Toning Firming Cream combines extracts of green tea and rye. Its “ice cube effect” texture creates a delicious shiver on contact with the skin, providing an immediate toning sensation. Skin is moisturised and gains in elasticity day after day.
The new body care line Rêve de thé also features an Exalting Fragrant Water, a Revitalising Shower Gel and a 24-h Fresh-Feel Deodorant.
STELLA MAXWELL GOES ON A SPACE MISSION FOR MOSCHINO
Photographed by Jeremy Scott, Moschino’s creative director, the model is the face of the new fragrance Toy 2 Bubble Gum. Wearing a silver space suit, Maxwell poses with the scent’s signature teddy bear-shaped bottle, this time rendered in a flashy pink tone that matches her manicure and bubble gum balloon.
A floral and fruity eau de toilette, Toy 2 Bubble Gum has a blend of candied citrus fruits with a bubble gum accord on top; peach flowers, Bulgarian rose and ginger powder at the heart, and musk and cedar wood essence in the dry down.
IS THIS ERBORIAN’S NEW CULT CREAM?
This Spring, Erborian introduces a new version of its number one best selling product, the CC Crème (one is being sold every 90 seconds): CC Water, an ultra-fresh, ultra-light product, a mix of skincare and make-up with a consistency that’s between gel and water.
CC Water, which is available in three shades, beautifies the skin, blurs and flatters, and enhances and revives the complexion. It has a translucent gel texture, in which thousands of micro-pigments burst onto the skin and makes it subtly coloured without a plaster-like, chalky effect. Apply a fine layer on your skin, just like your daily moisturizer.
Skin Hero, the second beauty launch 2021 by Erborian, is a non-tinted cream, which smoothes and refines the skin’s texture. It contains exfoliating enzymes, which eliminate dead skin cells and illuminate the complexion. Glycerin moisturizes and protects the skin from dehydration, while hyaluronic acid maintains the skin’s natural moisture.
Moreover, Skin Hero features a precious ingredient: white ginseng, the most prized ginseng of the emperors. In 200 B.C., Ginseng was traded for its weight in gold. It has moisturizing, antioxidant and smoothing properties.
FOR BEAUTY QUEENS WHO LOVE ITALY
Freshly in Beauty, the new spring/summer make-up collection by Italian beauty brand Naj Oleari, is inspired by light and by those simple joys we find in everyday moments.
The Sweet Bouquet Eyeshadow Palette, the star of the new collection, features four easy-to-blend eyeshadows with a fine, adherent texture. It includes warm, golden shades, alongside bolder tones with a touch of magenta. The sections are decorated with iconic bees, while the elegant rose-gold case features pastel accents and a magnetic closure.
The Lovely Cheek Blush is a luminous blush with a soft, silky sensation. It’s available in six shades, e. g. in Desert Rose (see picture). The cosmetic case with magnetic closure and mirror comes with a velvet pouch and a professional brush.
The Water Love Lip Tint & Lip Oil gives you soft, glossy, colourful lips in two easy steps. The lip tint creates a light, buildable layer with a satin finish, whereas the emollient lip oil combines the comfort of a treatment with the brightness of a gloss, for an ultra-shiny, transparent look. The two products can be used together or separately.
CLEANSE YOUR HANDS WITHOUT WATER
Formulated with softening glycerin and botanical-origin alcohol, Rêve de Miel Cleansing Gel by Nuxe envelops your hands in its comforting texture and a delightful rich honey scent lifted by citrus notes. Thanks to its very practical mini format, you can take it with you wherever you go.
The Rêve de Miel Cleansing Spray is the perfect ally for soft and clean hands. It diffuses a light mist with a delicious rich honey scent lifted by citrus notes. An essential product to keep within easy reach at all times, whether at home or in the office.
