Fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld released a new her-and-him duo of fragrances Fleur de Pêcher (Peach Blossom) and Bois de Vétiver (Vetyver Wood) in a debut collection entitled Les Parfums Matières, which is dedicated to French perfumery artisanal know-how, as well as to the building-up of a wardrobe of perfumes conceived the way you think about fabrics and cut in haute couture...
Fleur de Pêcher for women is said to evoke the tactile sensation of velvet, while Bois de Vétiver for men has asperities suggestive of grained leather. The brand compares both to "olfactive fabrics." They reference materials Lagerfeld likes to work with.
Fleur de Pêcher eau de parfum was composed as a fruity-floral by perfumer Emilie Coppermann of Symrise.
Notes and accords include silken peach blossom, vaporous jasmine tea, Nashi, Yuzu, blond woods and silken musks.
Bois de Vétiver eau de toilette is signed by perfumer Christophe Raynaud of Firmenich. It is a fresh, woody perfume.
Notes and accords include pink grapefruit, blood orange, crushed mint leaves, lightly rosy geranium, Ambrox, patchouli, vetiver and what is described as an enveloping and warm musky accord.
The scents launch exclusively at Marionnaud chain stores in France in August 2017, to start with.
Available in 50 ml and 100 ml for 35€ and 49€ respectively.
