Summer fragrance launches: Jennifer Aniston, Comme des Garçons, Thierry Mugler
Monday 24 May 2010
Here are the summer's biggest upcoming perfume releases, sorted by retail category.
Puma's new fragrance, the Usain Bolt-fronted Animagical scent will hit stores in June. Inspired by "the magic of Africa," the floral and fruity perfume will be available for men and women.
Thierry Mugler, the maker of the iconic Angel and Alien perfumes, will introduce Womanity in July, a scent that the New York Times described as "a commingling of figs and caviar, a sweet-salty combination as treacly as a chocolate-covered pretzel." Prices range from $58 to $98.
Lancôme will introduce a variation of its Ô de Lancôme scent, called Ô d'Azur in June, with summer notes including lemon, rose, and peony.
Dior has added a third fragrance to its Escale series, due out in June: Escale aux Marquises is based on the tiare flower, combined with notes of blood orange, pink pepper, cinnamon, ginger, coriander,lemon peel, and vanilla.
Comme des Garçons will launch its latest perfume, Wonderwood at London's Selfridges and Dover Street Market on June 24. Described as "wood gone mad" by the avant-garde makers behind the brand, the scent will include notes of Madagascan pepper, bergamot, incense, nutmeg, cedar, sandalwood, and vetiver. A short film, shot by the Brothers Quay for the fragrance, can be watched online.
Hollywood actress Jennifer Aniston is introducing her first fragrance, Lolavie. Set to go on sale exclusively at London's Harrods department store this June, Lolavie will become available in other countries such as the US later in the year, priced from $46.50. According to the actress, her scent will be "sexy and clean" and "floral, but not too flowery" - a discreet "nonperfume perfume."
A much more unlikely candidate for a fragrance launch, Bruce Willis is also releasing his first signature perfume. Little is known about the ingredients, price, and availability, but we do know it will become available somewhere in July.
A fragrance 'veteran,' Antonio Banderas will present The Secret in August, an oriental scent for men.
R'n'B star Mary J. Blige will launch her first fragrace called My Life - just like her 1994 hit album - with beauty brand Carol's Daughter in July. Featuring notes of gardenia, pear, tuberose, jasmine, lily, apricot blossom, and praline, the perfume will sell for $46.
Hotel heiress Paris Hilton will release her tenth fragrance, Tease in June. Miraculously, the scent is both "based on her fascination with Marilyn Monroe" and "more evocative of who Paris Hilton is." Notes include Fuji apple, white peach, bergamot, white flowers, amber, blonde woods and warm sand, and prices start at $45.
Singer Jessica Simpson also has a new scent in the starting blocks: Fancy Nights, the second follow-up to her Fancy perfume, will launch mid-summer. It will feature notes of patchouli, rose, and jasmine and sell for $49.
