Creed will debut Love in White in the United States this September, starting in Neiman Marcus (where several people have already reported seeing it), Bergdorf Goodman, and the NYC Saks, then moving on to other Saks stores in October. Creed will donate a portion of the sales for Love in White to UNESCO:
Described as a floral/oriental, Love in White features a top note of orange zest, middle notes of young iridescent rice husk, iris, white jasmine, daffodils, magnolia and Bulgarian rose, and base notes of vanilla, ambergris and sandalwood.
Lanvin will launch Arpège Pour Homme, a woody oriental fragrance for men, in September:
...concocted by Givaudan's Olivier Pescheux, [it] has top notes of pink peppercorns, mandarin, bitter orange and neroli; a heart of iris, jasmine, maté and nutmeg, and a drydown of vanilla, tonka beans, patchouli, Australian sandalwood and rare woods.
Paul Smith will launch a new fruity floral scent, Paul Smith Floral, in October:
The scent, by Laurent Eruyere of International Flavors and Fragrances, has top notes of sweet orange, pink grapefruit, fresh ginger and water lily; a heart of white magnolia, orchid and osmanthus blossom, and a drydown of amber, exotic woods, musk and tonka beans. [Note: I am assuming that should read Laurent Bruyere]
Donna Karan will jump on the layering bandwagon this October with Donna Karan Essence, a collection of oils. They will start with a quartet: lavender, jasmine, labdanum, and wenge (a dark African wood). (via Women's Wear Daily)
