Christian Louboutin has launched not one, but three different fragrances. As you would expect, the scents are just as luxurious as the shoes and the makeup. The fragrance collection is made up of three fragrances with amazing names: Bikini Questa Sera, Trouble in Heaven and Tornade Blonde.
In true Louboutin form the scents have bold, distinct personalities. Bikini Questra Sera is rich in amber notes, for rose fans there is Tornade Blonde with a blend of cassis and violet, and the final fragrance Trouble in Heaven offers more of a warm musk. It’s highly likely that you’ll only be drawn to one of the scents, but this is exactly what Louboutin wanted when he worked on the scents.
What separates the Christian Louboutin fragrances from others is the way they are formulated. The fragrances have a formula that Christian himself likens to touching a piano key. Confused? Let him explain:
“I want you to experience the fragrance in the same way as you experience a piano note being played. So there is the “ping”, the first burst of the scent like the striking of the piano key, followed by a beautiful resonance as the note echoes its sound. There is one present moment, and then there is the trace, le sillage. I think of it as its memory.”
What also separates the scents from the others on your vanity is the bottles. They were crafted by Heatherwick Studio, aka the geniuses behind that famous cauldron at the 2012 London Olympics. They’re referred to more as objet arts instead of simply bottles. Little masterpieces, that’s what they are. And yes, they are made of twisted glass and looped to give the illusion that the liquid is constantly moving.
“I want to give women the means to express themselves and delight in their femininity. I wanted these fragrances to enhance an aspect of their personality, or perhaps reveal something about them that no one knew before,” explains the designer Christian Louboutin. “This is what I try to evoke with shoes and now with the alchemy of fragrance.”
The Christian Louboutin fragrance collection is available to shop now on the brand’s website.
