"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.
