Bikini Questa Sera, Tornade Blonde and Trouble In Heaven are the names of the brand new Christian Louboutin fragrances for women that are described to be “irresistible” and “pure magic” by the brand’s official note released. Already available for purchase at Saks Fifth Avenue, Selfridges and Bergdorf Goodman, the three new Christian Louboutin perfumes are going to blow your mind instantly, and chances are you’ll have them on the brain until you finally get your hands on your preferred option.
After having been titillating us with his glamorous nail lacquers and lipsticks for over two years in a row, the shoe emperor is venturing out into the perfume industry now, expanding his beauty empire that’s as fascinating as his footwear designs with shiny, red-lacquered soles. It was back in 2014, when the French fashion designer dipped his toes into the beauty industry, instantly winning everyone’s hearts and souls with his high-end Rouge Louboutin nail varnishes that quickly managed to gain the status of elegance and luxury.
Exactly one year later, we were treated to his range of iconic red (and not only) lipsticks, and now 2016 marks the start of a new era for the house, letting its devoted followers literally wear Louboutin from head to toe. Launched just in time for the beginning of the fashion month, the three Christian Louboutin fragrances come to wrap you up in a distinctive scent that will imprint you on the minds of those surrounding you forever.
“I wanted to celebrate woman and her desires. I wanted these fragrances to enhance an aspect of her personality, or perhaps reveal something about her that no one knew before, maybe not even her, tell a secret, a story. I want to give women the means to express themselves and to delight in their femininity,” stated the designer, and we bet he knows how to enhance a woman’s personality and femininity.
Each of the three Christian Louboutin perfumes is different from the others, yet they all are united by the same idea behind their construction. “I want you to experience the fragrance in the same way as you experience a piano note being played. So there is the “ping”, the first burst of the scent like the striking of the piano key, followed by a beautiful resonance as the note echoes its sound. There is one present moment, and then there is the trace, le sillage. I think of it as its memory,” Christian Louboutin explains.
The Christian Louboutin Bikini Questa Sera is an intense, hot scent inspired by an Egyptian sunset, featuring jasmine and tuberose notes and coming captured inside a flame-resembling amber and warm gold bottle that mimics the sun.
Tornade Blonde, on the other hand, is a red rose-based sweet scent, complemented with notes of violet and cassis to evoke love, sensuality and desire. Its bottle has the same design as the previous scent, but different colors with a warm garnet meeting gold ombre.
Housed in a royal purple and gold ombre bottle inspired by the perfect iris that’s at the heart of this scent, the Christian Louboutin Trouble In Heaven is the most mysterious and sexiest scent of the three, mixing intoxicating patchouli and tonka absolut with the dry heat of oriental amber.
British architect Thomas Heatherwick is the mastermind behind the Louboutin fragrance bottle, which is innovative and mysterious just like the liquid housed in it. The design concept brings forth the idea of folding surfaces and twisting glass that also manages to create the impression that the “liquid is alive”.
From the bottle design to the unique blend of fragrance notes, all the three Christian Louboutin perfumes scream opulence and drama, and it’s really hard to resist the temptation of owning one.
