Former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris, Carine Roitfeld, steps into the world of fragrances with Carine Roitfeld Parfums
This fashion guru spent decades influencing our style and outfit decisions, and now, she is taking on the world of beauty with the launch of a luxury fragrance collection. Carine is due to receive the Founder’s Award by the Council of Fashion Designers of America at the CFDA Awards, and previously won the French Institute Alliance Française Art de Vivre Award to honor her contributions to the promotion of the French art of living, which was presented to her in 2017 by Carolyn Murphy.
The 64-year old is taking her brand to the next level with the launch of Carine Roitfeld Parfums; a seven-piece collection inspired by her seven favorite cities around the world and the “unforgettable lovers” she equates with each: Aurélien for Paris, George for London, Kar-Wai for Hong-Kong, Lawrence for Dubaï, Orson for New York, Sebastian for Buenos Aires, and Vladimir for St. Petersburg.
Heady florals, amber ouds, rich leather, and pungent and bold notes are noticeable amongst the genderless perfumes. Roitfeld collaborated with three different perfumers to create the scents: Aurélien Guichard, Pascal Gaurin, and Yann Vasnier. Each fragrance is an eau de parfum concentration, which means it will linger on your skin into the wee hours.
Carine Roitfeld Parfums is available for $285 on Net-a-Porter and www.carineroitfeld.com
