The New Classics

The New Classics - fragrance

Shining a light on new olfactory blends, scent design has come full circle. A return to fragrant roots, from reinterpretations of time-honoured notes to familiar ingredients deconstructed and reformed, this is the new-gen of scent icons – the classics-in-the-making…

Annick Goutal
Les Absolus Rose Oud

The Oud

Taking the exotic and mysterious charm of an Oud and beguiling it with Turkish rose, perfumers Camille Goutal and Isabelle Doyen at Annick Goutal present an enticing, Oriental chapter of their Les Absolus collection - the sensual Rose Oud Eau De Parfum. An alluring, modern reinterpretation of the traditional resinous scent, with spiced notes of cardamon and energetic coriander, infused into agarwood and incense, it’s an elegant unravelling of the well-known into something altogether new and uncharted. A must for those in search of a new olfactory journey.

  • The Minimalist

    An unmistakeably understated approach to fragrance, at Byredo, the focus is on raw materials and the elegance of interactions. An exploration into twilight, Cuir Obscur plays out through oppositions, opening with amaretto, given depth by nutmeg, while the heart reveals floral notes of ylang-ylang and rose balanced by lemon, sinking into a sensual base of leather and patchouli.

  • The New Classics - The New Minimalist
Dolce & Gabbana Parfums
Velvet Pure

The Floral

Taking the key note of the precious Mediterranean Reseda flower, for Dolce & Gabbana with Velvet Pure, the hallmarks of a fresh, green scent make way for a crystalline floralcy where nostalgia mingles with newness and the past plays into the present and future. Crisp accords of galbanum, jasmine and fig leaf open into the sweeter and richer notes of narcissus, neroli and geranium, with an earthiness to balance the scent provided by the lushness of the vetiver and luxuriousness of orris butter.

  • The Destination

    Few do destination scents better than TOM FORD, and one of its most captivating has to be Neroli Portofino Forte. With its jet-set nuance and emboldened attitude, it opens with citrus notes of bergamot and blood orange, infused with lavender and basil. Bitter orange rests at its heart, unfurling to reveal undertones of coastal wood, oakmoss and suede

The New Classics - Stella Pop

The Playful

With the iconic STELLA - a rose-based scent proving such an enduring classic, it was always going to be a tough act to follow, so for her newest fragrance, the fashion designer looks to the new generation of Stella girl for something way more playful and fresh. Step forward POP, vividly optimistic, its core note of tuberose is a bold burst of fluro-floralcy, wild and unfettered, infused with the deeper, grounding element of sandalwood - the perfect pairing to capture the ultimate vivre l’instant (live for the moment) effect.

The Series

For Tomas Maier at Bottega Veneta, the Palladian gardens of the Veneto region where classical Renaissance architecture mingles with nature is a veritable fragrance feast, giving rise to six exquisite scents each an olfactory trompe l’oeil, the capturing of a different moment both in space and time. One – infused with magnolia and bark, Two – deepened by the beauty of the cypress tree, Three – pear tree energised by mint, Four – azalea and chestnut, Five – aromatic and green, Six – rich, spiced rose infused by woody accords, each distinct in their sensibilities, yet together evoke an exquisite sensory journey.
