Salvador Dali

Salvador Dali perfumes are inspired by the great artist's pictures. Each Salvador Dali perfume is abstract, unusual and very extraordinary. Salvador Dali are meant to be worn and are created as a statement. They are constructed as an proclamation of sensuality, an exclamation mark on the nose. Salvador Dali perfumes are also an object of beauty housed in boxes and bottles that are directly taken from some of his famous and beautiful paintings and prints.

Sarah Jessica Parker

Sarah Jessica Parker is much more than the average Hollywood Celebrity, she is a style icon and a woman who has managed to move and influence women across the globe. Sarah Jessica Parker perfumes are an extension of her style and are a direct result of her need for a traditional, unashamadely feminine fragrance that graces the skin and provides the wearer with an alluring and gentle elegance. Try Sarah Jessica Parker perfumes as an elegant statement.

Serge Lutens

Serge Lutens is one of the most respected and revered perfume makers in the world. Since he began constructing perfume when he was 26 (he is now 63) Serge Lutens has been the name on everyone's lips as the premier perfume artist. Serge Lutens is a perfumer who creates and embellishes, his creations are neither reconstitutions of formula's and are not dependent on ancient formulas. Serge Lutens captures the spirit of perfume by masterminding scents that combine, harmoniously, the rarest, most authentic essences with modern sensual aspirations and technology. Through this method Serge Lutens constructs a universe of perfumes that is liberated from conventions and explores forgotten territories that are often abandoned by contemporary perfumery.

Sonia Rykiel

Sonia Rykiel was born in Paris, France in 1930 and began creating modern and innovative garnments from a young age. One of her first creations was the Poorboy Sweater, which made the cover of Elle fashion magazine, and brought her fame. She later became the first designer to put seams on the outside of a garment, and to print words on her sweater. This beginning is evident in the Sonia Rykiel perfume collection as most of her perfumes and aftershaves are housed in bottles shaped like this famous garnment. Never willing to be understated or go unnoticed Sonia Rykiel fragrances are a olfactory representation of this aspect of her personality and are outlandishly beautiful and feminine.

Stella McCartney

Stella McCartney's style, combining sharp tailoring with humour and sexy femininity, was immediately apparent after she graduated from St. Martins College in 1995. Stella McCartney has a unique vision of contrasting the outrageous with the sublime in a beautifuly feminine and modern manner, an expression that is now manifested itself in a line of fragrance products scented with soft, classic flowers, spiked with amber.

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.
