Rouge & Noir by Christian Lacroix {New Perfumes}

Flamboyant baroque designer Christian Lacroix is preparing to launch two new perfumes called Rouge (Red) and Noir (Black). The first one is for women and the second one for men. The perfumes were created in partnership with Avon as the company wishes to develop their credentials in the fashion world and Christian Lacroix is interested in reaching the mass market and developing its brand image in the broader market......

"Both scents were created by International Flavors & Fragrance perfumers. Laurent Le Guernec and Carlos Benaim created Rogue, and Pascal Gaurin and Yves Cassar produced Noir.

Described as a "floral chypre," Rouge features top notes of white pepper, orange and red peony; middle notes of osmanthus flower, Japanese plum blossom and Amazonian water lily, and bottom notes of cashmere woods, patchouli and musk.

Retailing for $32, Rouge will be launched in the U.K. in Septem­ber, followed by a full rollout to all markets, including the U.S., the following month. The gift-with-purchase will be a cosmetic bag designed by Lacroix. The fragrance's red and black packaging will reflect Lacroix's passion for bullfighting.

Noir, which retails for $28, is a "fresh, woody" blend with top notes of ginger and saffron; middle notes of cardamom and orris, and bottom notes of white cedarwood, driftwood, vetiver and musk."

I love Christian Lacroix's style and am thrilled to see that he is making his vision of fashion and art more widely accessible.
