French niche perfumery Divine with its roots on the Emerald Coast in Brittany has launched its ninth perfume called Eau Divine. It is presented as a "new eau de parfum [which] unites in symbiosis man and woman around the first unisex fragrance for the brand". Like for Annick Goutal, special care has been taken packaging-wise to respect feminine and masculine sensibilities by offering two different shapes of flacons.
As its name indicates, Eau Divine aims for a lighter, more transparent texture than usual; it is not a flanker to the debut fragrance Divine but a reference to the house's name...
The goal was to combine freshness and sensuality for a composition described as being "crystalline". The jus was composed by perfumer Yann Vasnier of Givaudan.
Eau Divine has top notes of green mandarin, star anise, rose hip, ginger, nutmeg; heart notes of orange blossom, violet, cardamom; base notes of white amber, warm musks, labdanum.
In related news, Divine is also planning to open a new standalone store in the city of Toulouse by the end of 2009.
