When Hedi Slimane took over the reins at Celine, we knew he’d shake things up. And, just as promised, the designer is delving back into the fragrance game with a new line of Paris-inspired scents.
The fashion house’s Haute Parfumerie collection features 11 perfumes with eight designed to wear during daylight and three to rock at night. The fragrances are unisex, mixing both traditionally masculine and feminine notes, but they all have Gallic accents, from chypre accord to flowers like iris and rose. Nine of the 11 fragrances debuted over the weekend at Celine’s perfumery at 390 rue Saint-Honoré in Paris. The other two are expected to be released next year.
Between the fun names (Reptile, Black Tie, Nightclubbing…) and the sleek glass bottles that are basically little works of art, this new endeavor is bound to pay off big time for the brand. Sadly, the new perfumes are a little hard to come by, for now.
The scents are currently available at Celine’s three Parisian boutiques plus its new perfume store and its New York City flagship on Madison Avenue. Later this month the fragrances will find their way to Celine shops in Europe and Japan before finally being sold to the masses online at the end of the month (just in time for holiday shopping, of course).
In the meantime, take a virtual tour of the new perfumery below.
