Let desire lead the way with New Wonderlust from Michael Kors

Michael Kors unveils a striking evolution of style and spirit with his new fragrance for women, Wonderlust. The new scent introduces a fresh perspective to the Michael Kors world of beauty, one as inspired by the journey as it is by the destination.

“Wonderlust is an infinite desire for adventure, romance, and discovery,” says Michael Kors. “It’s for the woman with the curiosity and passion to trust in herself and follow her heart.”

World-renowned model Lily Aldridge is the free-spirited face of the campaign, capturing the sense of luxe spontaneity that lies at the heart of the new fragrance.

Captivating, confident and always sexy, Wonderlust evokes a life where beauty, impulse and sensuality set the tone. Deeply romantic, it’s a fragrance inspired by the unexpected, the unknown and the exotic. Anything is possible in this passionate world.

THE FRAGRANCE • A blend of luxurious blossoms mingle with delectably spiced notes in this Oriental Floral Gourmand. The fragrance begins with the freshness of Italian Bergamot and a tantalizing pop of Pink Pepper, soothed by the refined gourmand of Almond Milk.

Bright florals bloom from a captivating signature that is deepened with the provocative spice of Dianthus and the sheer, vanilla-like touch of Heliotrope. An exotic and creamy finish of Benzoin Siam, Sandalwood Sri Lanka and Cashmeran Wood completes the intoxicating embrace.

Top Notes: Italian Bergamot, Sicilian Mandarin, Almond Milk, Pink Pepper

Mid Notes: Jasmine Grandiflorum Absolute, Dianthus, Jasmine Sambac Absolute, and Heliotrope

Gucci Guilty: a new dawn, a new chapter.

Behind the Gucci revolution, a new vision. Eclectic, contemporary, romantic—creative director Alessandro Michele is telling a different story about the brand. Celebrating individuality, the allure of the undefined, Gucci maps an emancipated sexuality. Designed with passion and authenticity, the House’s attitude is a feeling of freedom. Beginning on the runway, this story has flourished in every piece of the brand, and now it transforms Gucci fragrances.

Inimitable, unapologetic, the generation that inspires Alessandro Michele is characterized by a celebrative anarchy. They don’t believe in conformity, submitting to labels or to gender rules, breaking free from common social boundaries. They express themselves however they want, with whomever they want and passionately explore whatever they want. They are hedonistic: indulge in life’s pleasures, experiment and enjoy without the feeling of guilt. This modern declaration of self-expression and sexuality ignites the new chapter of Gucci Guilty. It sparks the campaign’s powerful statement: #GuiltyNotGuilty.

Under the #GuiltyNotGuilty light, the Gucci Guilty fragrances embody the new edge of the brand. They signify freedom, by sharing traditional male and female fragrance ingredients. In both scents, pink pepper, a warm, sweet peppery berry incites excitement while Patchouli, a complex green, woody and earthy note creates a sense of mystery.

The Reviews…

Ginger_Talks: Jean Paul Gaultier ‘Classique’ EDT & EDP Intense The Review

The History of Jean Paul Gaultier ‘Classique’

“Classique” made its début in 1993 in a body shaped bottle with voluptuous curves, armed with a satin corset. The woman it embodies stands tall like a conqueror, asserting both her powers of seduction and her unabashed femininity. As the antithesis of how the femininity is portrayed in traditional perfumery, the Classique woman is sensual to the extreme.

In 2013, “Classique” Intense pours her wasp waist and sculpted hips into a golden corset. With black liner on her eyes, a scandalously red mouth and sky-high stilettos, Classique Intense is a femme fatale who knows how to manipulate the codes of seduction. A beauty who enthrals anyone who dares to glance her way.

Now, here in 2015 the icons are developing into divas… In the privacy of their dressing rooms, the two stars slip their stunning bodies into glittering sheath dresses: pink for “Classique” and gold for “Classique” Intense.

Just before going out onto the stage, they glance at themselves in the mirror… They are sexier and more glamorous than ever, radiant and ready to unleash their charms. Shown in the new bottle design, which catches your eye from afar. 

The Review

We tried out the ‘Classique Intense’ – The fragrance comprises of, tiare flower which nestles in an overdose of gourmand notes. Wafts of orange blossom, vanilla and patchouli then make their entrance, playing the role of irresistible sensuality. We think this is your perfect evening scent for your glamorous night out; with an eye catching bottle & that deep night-time fragrance. Great to finish off your outfit for that effortless night out.

“Classique” Eau de Toilette Glam, £73 (100ml) and “Classique” Eau de Parfum Intense Glam’ Edition, £81 (100ml) by Jean Paul Gaultier will be available nationwide from 5th October 2015
