Ralph Lauren

Considered one of the premier designers in American fashion today, Ralph Lauren has revolutionized the fashion industry and managed to make casual and slightly sporty stylish and elegant. From his humble beginnings in men's ties, the Ralph Lauren empire now includes every category of fashion, from ready-to-wear collections to fragrances. His collections have inspired men and women in the art of style with his sophisticated approach to simple elegance and his fragrances for men and perfumes are no exception. Each is effortlessly chic, refreshing and enhances the wearer's natural beautiy, whilst also being unmistakeably a Ralph Lauren creation.

Roberto Cavalli

Roberto Cavalli was born in Florence, Italy, in 1944 and attended the Florence Art Academy, where he learnt his craft and develped his design flair. For 20 years Cavalli has been making sensual and sexy garments, which have been very successful in Italy and other European countries. He has recently superceded this success in America and now Roberto Cavalli is a firm favourite designer of show business celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Mary J. Blige and Lenny Kravitz. Cavalli's unique, colourful, strong and sexy approach has earnt him this claim because of his whole strong approach, his colour, sexuality and following. Roberto Cavalli fragrances are equally as daring and exciting, with a unashamadely sexy approach and style that will captivate.


Marcel Rochas was one of the most talented and successful designers of his age. In the 1920's, with French haute couture at its zenith, he created feminine designs for Hollywood stars like Joan Crawford, Jean Harlow, and Carole Lombard. In 1944 he launched his first perfume, Femme, dedicated to his wife Helene. After his death in 1955, the company kept his creative inspiration alive, launching such legendary fragrances as Madame Rochas, Byzance, and Eau de Rochas.

Roger Gallet

Roget Gallet fragrances are a traditional range of fresh fragrances that are both youthful in essence but traditional in the way in which they are constructed and made. Each Roget Gallet fragrance offers a brighter side of life and a sporty approach to perfume.

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.
