The New Classics
If we take a look of whichever of the logos engraved in any of these bottles, we can tell that they are all-time great and highly respectable in fashion -and beauty- world. The scents that we chose for this still life are classic -and classy- but with a contemporary twist, just like their brands they belong.
1.Solo Loewe Esencial. Loewe. J.W. Anderson decided to give a new look to all bottles in the aromatic collection, redesigning a modern aesthetic replacing the classic ones. In this particular fragrance, the slim metallic strips match perfectly with the light herbal and citric aroma which gives allure to this perfume.
2.Aqua Kenzo Pour Homme. Kenzo. The ancestral woodwork illustration of ‘The Great Wave off Kanagawa’ works as an inspiration for this aquatic deep aroma. This Kenzo’s scent stands out from the other watery fragrances due to the intense spiciness of tonka bean and cedar notes.
3.For Him Bleu Noir Eau de Parfum. Narciso Rodriguez. Like some pret-a-porter pieces made by the American designer have been considered timeless, this fragrance perfectly evokes this concept. The blend of musk with the woody family of cedar and ebony provides a sharp and clean aroma that goes beyond time.
4.Gentleman Eau de Parfum. Givenchy. Color black always has been the best way to describe the elegance of something, and Givenchy knows that very well. The reinterpretation of the original one -in the 70’s- shows us an intense and thick black bottle, contrasting with the modern notes -lavender, patchouli, and black vanilla.
5.41 Burlington Arcade. Atkinsons. Evoking the English classy refinement, the mix of so many notes -grapefruit, transparent flowers, nutmeg, just to mention some- resulted in a modern fragrance with one-of-a-kind aroma that surprisingly fits well to every occasion.
