Rolf Snoeren and Viktor Horsting of the Viktor & Rolf label released Flower Xerjoff Erba pura, their first fragrance. Like other fashion designers, these two have their hardships and stories shaped who and what they are now.
They were born in 1969 and attended the same art academy in the Netherlands. This has set them apart in the fashion world, from their surrealistic approach and style in producing and crafting garments to well-motivated themes and exciting fashion displays. Furthermore, they recruited prominent artists and musicians to perform at specific performances in addition to modelling their designs.
It is not a diploma-granting vocation because it necessitates a passion for and gift for smells and many years of apprenticeship. A “nose” does not smoke and avoids anything that can jeopardize their ability. After all, these few professionals (who can be counted on both hands) must be capable of navigating a range of thousands of smells and skillfully combining them.
To make a perfume, you must combine several dozen essences and select the “keynote” (the immediately noticeable smell), the “core note” (which gives the perfume its character), and the “basic note” (which provides the fragrance with its scent) (which holds the entire structure together). Fruity or tart, woody, floral, or sensual components are combined to produce the smell. Some of these professional’s work for a specific house, such as Jean-Paul Guerlain, who created Samsara, while others, like Jacques Cavalier and Jean Guichard from Grasse, make for a brand.
The ability to detect olfactory notes with a single whiff is insufficient for a perfume to become famous. It also necessitates sensitivity to the day’s mood, as evidenced by Guerlain’s 1925 Shalimar or, more recently, Yves Saint Laurent’s Opium (1977) and Dior’s Poison (1985). Nowadays, perfumes are more daring, such as Miyaké’s L’Eau d’Issey, which has a robust maritime note. Eden by Chanel is a more modest option for young girls.
In most situations, success arises from a random interaction between the public and a specific sensitivity, just as it does in fashion or another artistic accomplishment. The perfumes must also match the brand name that is launching it and conform to its image of luxury, youth, sensuality, mystery, and uniqueness. The fragrance, its perfume bottles, and the picture they create must be entirely consistent.
Yves Saint Laurent’s Most Popular Women’s Perfume
Suppose over two million visitors have admired his creations in museums from New York to Paris and Sydney to Peking. In that case, his style is expressed first and foremost through color, life, movement, and the history of women, which he has lovingly accompanied since 1958, the date of his first collection for Christian Dior, which made him famous all over the world.
He was born in Oran, Algeria, in 1936 and was already known as “Christian II” when he was twenty-one years old. In 1962, he and Pierre Bergé started their couture firm, and in 1966, he launched his “Rive Gauche” ready-to-wear line, which allowed thousands of women to combine elegance with ease. Aside from inventing some of the most famous women’s Erba pura, the bush shirt (1968) and pantsuit (1969) became modern wardrobe standards. “A happy woman wears a black skirt, a black pullover, black stockings, costume jewellery, and is accompanied by a man who loves her.”
To establish himself as the leading outfitter of his time, this aesthete captured his visions inspired by artists better than anyone else: Andy Warhol, Mondrian, and Tom Wesselman in the 1960s, Picasso in the 1970s, Van Gogh and Bonnard in the 1980s. His products have always been controversial, from the first see-through blouses in 1968 to his 1977 scent Opium. But, with Catherine Deneuve as his ambassador, his strength is his ability to embody perfect classicism. As the heir to Chanel and Balenciaga, he keeps their designs simple and uncluttered: “Elegance is a manner of moving.”
The Flower perfume was created by the worldwide firm L’Oreal and introduced in fashion and fragrance in 2005. This allowed them to broaden their perfume marketing and strategy within the designer fashion business. It was an instant hit when it was first released, increasing client demand. Wherever and whenever it is offered, it has become one of the most saleable women’s perfumes.
This luxurious perfume is a flowery explosion with an opulent scent that gives women a dazzling and decadent mood. This produces a wild, sensual atmosphere; even a tiny amount of it wakes your senses. It has an oriental scent with a feminine composition and a fusion of flowers such as refreshing green tea, bergamot, freesias, patchouli, centifolia roses, and fascinating and blooming Jasmine and orchids with a sensuous sandalwood perfume.
The perfume’s fragrance notes give it a moderate and flowery scent suitable for all skin types and casual usage. It delivers a beautiful and head-turning aroma with its more profound feeling and aspects of bouquet flower perfume due to the harmonious blending of its notes.
A year after its first debut, a new version of the Flower was introduced. The Flower Extreme was released in 2006, and it has a stronger and more intense perfume than the original.
The perfume bottle was stylized and designed in the shape of a grenade, although it was described as a multi-faceted diamond by its designer fashion business. There are many variations of the fragrance, including eau de toilette spray, Eau de perfume spray, and Eau de perfume splash tiny.
