THE NAME OF THE ROSE

Niche fragrances are different from other perfumes because they are created with fine, rare ingredients, with much higher concentrations compared to the average of other fragrances. The branch of art perfumerie counts parfumers and independent producers not aligned with market rules and therefore free to experiment. Theese type of fragrances are like a Chanel dress, they never go out of fashion, indeed, as years go by they become true icons like Rose Noir by Byredo. Jus which belong to the family of flowery fragrances, was created in 2007, but remains a novelty in the olfactory field. Starring the Rosa Damascena that in this particular olfactory pyramid takes a decadent aspect: the flower character is obscured by earthy agreements of oak and musk. One of the so called rare perfumes that do not betray the quality of this uncompromising raw material.

BYREDO-AlessioNesiInterpretation of Rose Noir by BYREDO

Le fragranze di nicchia si differenziano dagli altri profumi perché sono creati con ingredienti pregiati, rari, in concentrazione più alte rispetto alla media delle altre fragranze. Il ramo dell’arte profumiera conta parfumeurs e produttori indipendenti non allineati con le regole del mercato e quindi liberi di sperimentare. Questo tipo di fragranze, sono come un abito di Chanel, non passano mai di moda, con il passare degli anni diventano vere e proprie icone, come Rose Noir di Byredo. Jus appartenente alla famiglia delle fragranze fiorite è stato creato nel 2007, ma rimane, in campo olfattivo, una novità assoluta. Protagonista la Rosa Damascena che in questa particolare piramide olfattiva assume un aspetto decadente: il carattere del fiore è oscurato con accordi terrosi di Quercia e muschi. Uno dei rari profumi così chiamati che non tradiscono la qualità di questa intransigente materia prima.

CK ONE GOLD: PARFUM OF A WINNING GENERATION

CK One Gold is a tribute to young “Re Mida” that do not make mistakes and everything they touch turns to gold. The new fragrance by Calvin Klein captures the allure of the jeunesse dorée in a limited edition, expertly mixing the energy of both sexes in a bold unisex jus, gold and scratchy. It starts in the top notes with juicy notes of Fig which imprints to the whole overture a burst of energizing freshness. Neroli bright heart and a base of vetiver which leave a hot and vibrant trailon skin. The perfume is an indelible memory. CK One Gold keeps what it promises: a drop of gold to everyone. A trace of lasting emotion through gold, the unifying element of a permanent aesthetic theater, ripe fruit of a capitalism in which epic of products and fetishism of their passions predominate.

ck-alessionesiCK One Gold Eau de Parfum by CALVIN KLEIN

Il profumo si apre a percorsi creativi originali. Gli odori sono un linguaggio con il quale si può raccontare il contemporaneo.

Materiale duttile, alchemico e imperiale, d’indole chiassosa per i toni lucenti, è il colore della società dello spettacolo.

La nuova fragranza di Calvin Klein coglie l’allure della jeunesse dorée in un’edizione limitata, amalgamando sapientemente l’energia di entrambi i sessi in un jus unisex audace, aureo e graffiante. Esordisce nelle note di testa con la nota succosa di Fico che imprime all’ouverture una sferzata di energizzante freschezza. Cuore luminoso di Neroli e una base di Vetiver lascia una scia calda e vibrante sull’incarnato. Il profumo è un ricordo indelebile. CK One Gold mantiene ciò che promette: una goccia d’oro a tutti. Una traccia d’emozione duratura attraverso l’oro, elemento unificante di un teatro estetico permanente, frutto maturo di un capitalismo in cui predomina l’epica dei prodotti e il feticismo delle loro passioni.

PUNK ESPRIT

Provocation and formal rigor. Boldness and elegance: to seize the two souls of fashion a new and irreverent creativity declined on accessories, perfumes and make-up starting from next spring. Halfway between underground irreverence and café society.

NEIL BARRETT’S CONSTRUCTIVISM

Direction NEIL BARRETT Interview and Beauty Consultant ALESSIO NESI Make Up Artist MASSIMILIANO DELLA MAGGESA Photography CAROLINA AMORETTI

Neil Barrett’s aesthetic provides a taste of dry and minimal lines. The cut follows principles of abduction and summary in oder to find the absolute form in the outline of the figure, severe and essential. This same way, even the search for make-up, status symbols of every fashion-house, identifies a DNA made of detached purism. Elegant, not improvised, Neil Barrett’s neo grooming is a semiotic system of pure and “constructivist” geometric forms.

neilbarrett-1

Simple signs, interpreted through monochrome black, saturated and opaque, express an independent soul, synthesize a unique body of work condensed into a visual story made of six images, which, in this global area, resets the differences between male and female and do not abandon themselves to the ghosts of the past.

neilbarrett-2

How would you describe your work in purely aesthetic terms? Graphic blocking, neutral colours plus one accent only.
 How was  the make-up of Neil Barrett realised ? Which the developments? To take specific graphic images that we use in our prints, interiors and packaging and apply them to another canvas, the face.

neilbarrett-3

Which is your relationship with colour and how do you approach the relationship with make up? I like to achieve impact without using colour to see all trough monochromatic black and white lense and still have the strenght of the image. Otherwise when I do use colour, I use one colour only or many tones of one colour.

neilbarrett-4

Your definition of beauty? Purity of line, balanced imperfection.

 How did your relationship with Video develop? It’s a backstage of this work, as we would do with a fashion show… but recorded spontaneously with an Iphone.

CHRISTMAS GIFTS – BLACKPEPPER: THE MODERN ENIGMA BY COMME DES GARÇONS

Per leggere la recensione in italiano apri il link di ELLE.IT

BlackPepper is an electric collision of molecules, a clash between spicy, pepper grains suspended in an endless darkness“. This is the way to describe the new unisex fragrance by Comme des Garçons. The cult brand for fashion victims, after revolutionizing the fashion world, destabilizes the rules of perfumery by creating olfactory compositions known for the continuous research of material expression into the unknown. In the latest fragrance called Blackpepper, black Pepper from Madagascar becomes the key ingredient of a sillage similar to a carom of molecules: a myriad of black Pepper grains soar in total darkness.

cdg-alessionesiEau de Parfum Blackpepper by COMME DES GARÇONS

Agreements of Cedarwood, Hagar, Patchouli and the caramel resin of Tonka Bean that gives to its harmony an hypnotic coté, are added to spicy notes. Blackpepper is a subversive and convincing experiment because it reproduces in a metaphoric key enigmatic odors and the dynamics of underground reality in an olfactory crash.

CHLOÉ LA VIE EN ROSES

Per leggere la recensione in italiano apri il link di ELLE.IT

Just when we gave up hope of smelling something different from the usual advertising slogans there we go, Chloé Fleur de Parfum arrives in perfumeries to produce an immediate poetry, romantic and evocative as a flag. The Rose, olfactory signature of the parisian fashion house, just after eight years since its creation has been the protagonist of various interpretations, exploring the different aspects of this flower.

chloe-alessionesiCHLOÉ FLEUR DE PARFUM

Today Chloé garden is enriched with a new voluptuous version. The olfactory pyramid, created by noses Michel Almairac and Mylène Alran, was built straight from the heart of the Rose and mixed with Cherry flowers and Almond milk, to give roundness to the fragrance, maintaining that indistinguishable light caress on bare skin. Ten seconds are more than enough to project ourselves in the golden light that illuminates an autumn evening. Essential.

INTERCHANGEABLE FRAGRANCES BY PRADA

Per leggere la recensione in italiano apri il link di ELLE.IT

Two new perfumes enrich the perfumery world of Prada; created by the nose of the fashion house, Daniela Andrier, these two new scents are the quintessence of the brand. Studied to delineate and define two sides of the same coin: the feminine world and the masculine one, of the brand of course, both combined in an osmotic dialogue. Interchangeable fragrances, to accompany the wearer on a journey through time and space in a continous flow just as contemporary fashion, closed within itself, made of frictions and rigorous contrasts but always perfectly immersed in an upper middle class atmosphere.

prada-alessionesi LA FEMME PRADA Eau de Parfum

La Femme by Prada, in particular, is a fragrance from the eastern floral group, created with spices agreements, beeswax, Frangipani, Tuberose, Iris, Ylang Ylang and a base of Vetiver and Vanilla. Miuccia Prada thinks of a fluid feminine identity, changing, and she does it by evoking multiple female identities. In contrast with the male counterpart. The result? Anyone can identify with it and make it their own.

THE NEW CHANEL N5: PRAISE OF PURITY

Per leggere la recensione in italiano apri il link di ELLE.IT

Chanel N ° 5 is not just a perfume, but an olfactory heritage: a precise idea of elegance and femininity from generation to generation. In 1924, only three years after the creation of the extract, Ernest Beaux introduced the Eau de Toilette version. In 1986, Jacques Polge created the Eau de Parfum. Today, his son Olivier Polge, enfant prodige of contemporary parfumery, has literally reinvented and reshaped No. 5 with a reductionist approach and with detached purism.

n5-alessionesi N°5 L’EAU CHANEL

With the same meticulousness of a swiss goldsmith, Polge has studied and revised the entire olfactory pyramid, reducing to minimum grade all raw materials, assigning the greatest degree of expression creating light and changeable agreements: Rose mingles with Jasmine along with Vanilla and a new fraction of Ylang Ylang, increasing the vibrations of various zest, while the aldehyde smells of orange peel, abandoning the metallic notes. The result is an unprecedented olfactory variation, prais of purity and essentiality. N 5 L’EAU is the new N 5 of today.
