Shiseido’s new perfume Ever Bloom available at International Duty Free shops

Diegem, Belgium, 2015-10-1 — /EPR Retail News/ — Shiseido has created a new perfume endowed with the marvelous power of revealing the inner feminity and beauty of the woman wearing it.

The musk and floral notes (orange flower and gardenia) fashion a new, sensuous airiness, leaving a precious imprint and intoxicating floral wake on the skin.

It stems from the magical hands of its creator, Aurélien Guichard. It is not exactly a perfume but more of an impression, a gracious aura made of light and grace, a floral scent suggesting a new feminity: softer, more incarnated and more authentic.

Ever Bloom is nothing less than your aura. Your presence. Your new scent.

Take advantage of your passage in our perfume shops to discover this magical fragrance.

Molton Brown Launches ‘Navigations Through Scent’ Collection

Molton Brown has launched a new artisan fragrance range – The ‘Navigations Through Scent’ Collection.

The range includes five varied and distinct unisex fragrances to be equally enjoyed by men and women. To mark the brand’s debut into the artisanal fine fragrance arena, this collection was exclusively available at Harrods from August 2011 and is now available in Molton Brown stores nationwide.

Taking a timely journey into the world of fine fragrance, Molton Brown has created a collection which surprises and seduces through its promise of intriguing stories and ingredients.

The ‘Navigations Through Scent’ Collection delves into the heritage of perfume, tracing its influences back to the ancient spice route, where rarity and the high value of the ingredients made trading along this trail both exhilarating and perilous. Following key focal points along the route, the journey starts in the Ancient World, the birthplace of fragrance – Egypt, China and Indonesia, then over to England for trade, before entering the New World in Canada.

The floriental-spicy scent of ‘IUNU’ (30° 12’N, 31° 32’E) starts the journey, transporting the mind to the Nile, echoing strength, power, seduction and majesty with its lead ingredient, Egyptian white jasmine, giving an elegant opulence. ‘LIJIANG’ (25° 16’N, 110° 16’E) leads to China, with its floral-musky scent capturing the light, delicate softness of silk and crisp tea. Its lead ingredient, osmanthus absolute, brings a fresh delicacy and sophistication to the fragrance. Next to Indonesia with ‘SINGOSARI’ (07° 91’S, 112° 65’E), drawing its inspiration from the beauty of the spices and memories of tropical weather, with patchouli perfectly capturing the essence of the country, producing a spicy-woody scent.

The journey continues to England for trading with ‘APULDRE’ (51° 02’N, 0° 47’E) which, through its lead ingredient of juniper berry, conjures images of green lawns, English mischief and gin & tonics, perfectly capturing its green-aromatic quality. The journey ends in the New World, Canada, with ‘ROGART’ (45° 33’N, 63° 9’W) a juxtaposition of continental ices and heat, civilization and wilderness with fir balsam and maple making up its woody-fresh scent, inspiring the warm feeling of being inside, with the cold weather outside.

Jennifer Jambon, Molton Brown’s Principal Perfumer, spent a year travelling to these destinations and uncovered a host of unusual scent ingredients, all of which had a powerful influence on her creation process, evoking emotions and memories.

“It was my dream to develop an artisanal collection, that not only captured the essence of the Molton Brown brand, but also inimitable fragrances which resonated with the wearer, in a unique and very personal way. The ‘Navigations Through Scent’ collection has been designed to appeal to niche fragrance lovers everywhere. Each fragrance note has been beautifully and painstakingly crafted, using the finest, rarest ingredients. It took me a year of careful research, exploration and discovery to prepare these five unique scents, which I feel perfectly echo the essence of the spice trade, and the wonderful role of perfume through the ages.”

Molton Brown’s Navigations Through Scent Collection offers sensuous anecdotes of worldly destinations, unraveling personal memories and senses to capture a truly timeless experience.

The Make-Up Time Bomb In British Women’s Cosmetic Bags

Debenhams has revealed that the average British woman’s cosmetic bag is out of date by a worrying four years.

The new research highlighted that many British women are using cosmetics well past the use-by date, unaware that products can be a magnet for germs which could cause damage to their health and looks.

Sara Stern, Director of Cosmetics at Debenhams said, “British women are famously loyal to make up brands and products, however, their reluctance to throw away old products is a risky business.”

Beauty essentials such as foundation, concealer, blusher, eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, lipstick and perfume all include a ‘period after opening’ indicator, denoted by an open pot with the number of months of safe use written inside.

Despite European Union guidelines meaning brands have to state product shelf lives, 89% of women are unaware that such information exists, do not understand what the symbol means or are unable to read the often tiny writing. Make-up, perfume and skincare products used after the expiry date carry a risk of irritation and infection. This is due to air and bacteria infiltrating the products. Multiuse products carry an even higher risk as they can spread germs from eyes to skin to lips.

The study also found that 68% of women only replace make-up and skincare when they run out, however long that might take. 72% of women never wash their make-up sponges or brushes, even though they should do at least once a week. 81% of British women also regularly (at least once a week) go to sleep without removing make up.

Bevis Man of the British Skin Foundation said: “It’s not always obvious when make-up has passed its prime, so it may not occur to people to replace their products. It is best to err on the side of caution and if a product looks or smells strange, it is worth throwing it away.

“Cost is probably a major factor in why people do not replace out-of-date cosmetics. However, products can dry out and become less effective as they age.

“Your eyes are one area of your face you need to be particularly careful with, as eye infections can be painful and long-lasting. Make-up sponges are a particular haven for bacteria, especially if they are kept for a long period of time and are not washed. Again, it is best to keep them clean and replace them after a few months’ use.”

As a result of the findings, Debenhams is exploring ways in which the ‘best before’ date of products can be better communicated to customers. Staff members are being trained to point out the importance of regularly replacing products and a ‘make up’ amnesty is planned nationwide. Debenhams has also written to the Secretary of State for Health to push for further legislation to cover the safety of consumers.

Sara Stern concluded, “Hopefully this call to action will encourage women to have a ruthless spring clean of their cosmetics collections. All our Beauty Hall staff members are on hand to advise customers of the use-by dates of their current items and help replenish any empty cosmetic bags”.

Boots Has Become The Exclusive Dealer Of Fragrance House Girard

In the early 1920s it was the French fine fragrance houses that dominated the market, especially once Chanel No.5 was launched in 1921. However, a British fragrance house, Girard, had been popular since the turn of the century, and now approximately one hundred years after it first went on sale, the brand has been revived with Boots becoming the exclusive stockist of Girard.

The original Girard was a modern brand, sitting alongside contemporaries such as Chanel, Floris and Penhaligons, with some of its advertising illustrated by Gladys Peto, a member of the legendary Bloomsbury Set. At its height, Girard offered fifteen different fragrances and now some of these original recipes have been reconstructed to form part of the new range.

Two original recipes from the 1920s have been reinvigorated and will be launched as a celebration of the brand’s heritage. Bouquet d’Orient is a rich spicy oriental fragrance with top notes of Bergamot, Lemon and Neroli giving way to a floral heart of Rose, Ylang Ylang and French Violet Leaves to name but a few. These all rest on a warm resinous mélange including Madagascan Vanilla, Tonka Bean, Myrrh and a hint of Patchouli. In contrast Lysval is a floral perfume with a cascade of flowers including Ylang Ylang, Indian Jasmine, Rose petals and Orange blossom, supported by a particularly French base which contributes to a Springtime floral essence.

The lead perfumer on the project was Beverley Bayne at CPL Aromas. She said of Girard: “The challenge was to update the fragrance, keeping as close to the original signature as possible whilst still appealing to the modern nose. These fragrances are like fine French wine – the charm of them is that they are meant to be savoured and have great depth.”

Because Girard was always such a contemporary fragrance house, it is only fitting that some new fragrances enter the fold on its relaunch. Three additional fragrances have been created to accompany the original recipes, all evoked by some of women’s favourite destinations around the world – Bali Sunrise, New York Nights and Provence Spring. Bali Sunrise is a luscious green, floral and fruity fragrance, New York Notes focuses on a citrus top note with warm base whilst Provence Springs is a fresh floral perfume.

Girard Brand Development Manager, Helen Tarver said: “The beauty of archives is that you never know what you’re going to find. When I found a whole batch of original recipes and marketing materials in the archives I felt instantly excited that I had found some “buried treasure” that was worth resurrecting.”
