Do you remember all of these?
The end of a year is the perfect time to reflect on the last 12 months. To enjoy our achievements, laugh back at the bad times that we couldn’t chuckle at before and simply reminisce on everything that happened. Here at The Fragrance Shop, we’re doing the same, and looking back at the iconic fragrance launches of the previous year. Which of these do you remember?
Remember when Harry Style stole our Gucci hearts all over again?
For Gucci Mémoire d’une Odeur fragrance for both him and her, scent becomes an explorer of the power of memories and brings them back to life. Skipping back and forth in chronological time, the past and present are linked by a passage that projects straight into the future.
Gucci Mémoire d’une Odeur has taken gender out of the equation and made this scent universal for all, whoever, whenever, wherever. The individuality of the scent reflects the eccentricity of the person who wears it. So unique that a novel olfactive family was established, Mineral Aromatic. Mineral is a combination of elements; airy, musky, transparent and authentic. Collective with Aromatic essences, it becomes the heart of Gucci Mémoire.
Dua Lipa was revealed as the face of YSL’s brand new women’s fragrance. Libre, the scent of freedom.
Libre is the French word for ‘free’, and so this fragrance pays tribute to YSL’s most defining and enduring value of freedom. Freedom to be confidence in yourself. Freedom to make choices. Freedom to ultimately live your life to its fullest. No reason to compromise, play completely by your own rules.
Libre is a grand, floral perfume for women with an unpredictable YSL twist. The burning sensuality of orange blossom is woven into the aromatic boldness of lavender. Lavender is traditionally used in male fragrances, but is made significantly feminine culminating a couture-infused scent with a uniquely androgynous YSL attitude.
Inspired by Gabrielle Chanel, Gabrielle Chanel Essence is the fragrance of a woman who is attentive to her needs and speaks her mind. A radiant woman who truly shines as she fully expresses her personality. The fragrance seems to hover weightlessly within the square bottle crafted of ultra-thin glass. The label and the stopper flaunt a shade of gold that is deep and rich, just like the fragrance.
Before it was the name of a fragrance, Gabrielle was the name of a woman: Coco Chanel. A woman who made history by writing her own rules and encouraging others to follow her. She was passionate about what she wanted, and what she wanted was to be free and be the woman she wanted to be. Wearing Gabrielle Chanel Essence is to portray your own identity and revel your intensity; following your own path, pushing your own ideas forwards, feeling alive and radiant.
Gabrielle Chanel Essence is a solar and voluptuous composition. Like a fragrant nectar, the Essence is a floral concentrate composed around four flowers: exotic and intense jasmine, radiant and fruity ylang-ylang, fresh and sparkling orange blossom, and creamy, highly feminine Grasse tuberose. Considered to be the most bewitching flower of all, Grasse tuberose is magnified, radiating throughout the fragrance to create a warm and enveloping trail.
Lancôme Idôle is an ode to the women of today. It comes in a bottle that was made for a future without limitations. It’s devoted to the women who dare to be dreamers and defy all expectations in life. A scent for the leaders of today and the future, the innovators of the world. For those who hold their own power and are outspoken. This is for the women who are their own inspiration, the new generation of icons. Your time is now, be your own Idôle.
