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.

Ten seconds are more than enough to project ourselves in the golden light that illuminates an autumn evening. Essential.

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.
