Naf Naf

In 1991, NAF NAF associated with l'Oréal launched its first fragrance "Une Touche de NAF NAF." Distributed in department stores and mid-sized retail outlets, the perfume became number one in its sector. NafNaf fragrances are as wearable, touchable as their clothing lines. Each Naf Naf fragrance has been devised with their wearer in mind and as a result are casual yet sexy and affordable but fabulously made.

Naomi Campbell

Born in 1970 in Streatham, South London, Naomi Campbell has been described as the "first black supermodel" and was arguably the biggest name on the catwalks at the end of the Nineties. Her perfume lines were an number amongst a number of business ventures for the super model and star. To accompany the perfumes Naomi also launched a book, a singing career and an acting career.

Narciso Rodriguez

Narciso Rodriguez draws his inspiration from women and designs his perfumes and clothes for the women that inspires him. His creations are designed to celebrate female beauty and sensuality and form and each piece of couture and perfume aims to set off their body and aura. Narciso Rodriguez has a unique, timeless style that combines the rules of American ready-to-wear fashion, the traditions of European Haute-Couture and the sensuality of his Latin heritage. Other than the dress, what could be more natural than to clothe a woman with a fragrance, a fragrant aura, and the tangible and moving expression of feminine gracefulness and this ethos is evident in his beautiful fragrance collection.


Famous female clothing designer Nikos launched a range of female and male perfumes and aftershaves to compliment the simple sophisticated and streamlined clothes that the house was renowned for. Nikos conjured some of the most enchanting fragrance designs that graced the skin and added the a splash of greek god and goddess to any outfit.

Nina Ricci

The House of Ricci's tradition of excellence began with its founder, Nina Ricci. One of the great couturiers of France, Nina Ricci established the House of Ricci in 1932. Ricci knew with a woman's instinct how to enhance each client's personality with extraordinary designs combining classicism, femininity, simplicity, and sophistication. Today, from haute couture to fragrance, the House of Ricci is a woman's natural partner in making life more beautiful and her fragrance collection is a simple and sensual means of communicating this ethos.

This is the extract or extrait of a fragrance and represents the scent in its purest form. This often creates a smooth and round texture, which is hard to achieve with the dilution represented in the other concentrations of fragrance.
Eau de Parfum or EDP is one of the most popular forms of fragrance. Eau de Parfum contains between seven to fourteen per cent of fragrance oils and perfume elixirs and is the second strongest, and longest lasting means of wearing a fine fragrance.
Eau de Toilette or EDT is fast becoming the most common means of wearing a fragrance or perfume. EDT’s are not as highly concentrated in oils and elixirs as an EDP or Perfume would be and contain one to three per cent of fragrance oils. This impacts the ability of the fragrance to last and around eighty percent of the oils in an EDT fragrance will evaporate within three hours of application.
Eau de Cologne’s or EDC’s were first popularised by Napoleon. These fragrances are often constructed in a different manner to the traditional French Model and are formulated in one single burst. As a result of this process, EDC’s or Eau de Colognes last the least amount of time on the skin and can dissolve within a couple of hours. EDC’s should be worn as a invigorating spray.
