Coming next year from Kenzo: a new women's fragrance, as yet unnamed, and a new summer limited edition of L'Eau Par Kenzo, Love L'Eau.
Scented billboards? Azzaro is advertising Silver Black in Paris airports using "advertising stations" that "will diffuse the Silver Black scent to a radius of five meters around each station located in proximity to perfumery outlets in the terminals." (both above via cosmeticnews)
The next fragrance from Serge Lutens to join the export range might be named Gris Clair. Thanks to J for passing on the (completely unsubstantiated) rumor!
A new phone from Hyundai for the Chinese market emits the fragrance of your choice when you open the clamshell. The cost? $1200. (via I4U news) A cheaper option: Lenovo's Perfume Phone, which works by "heating a small chamber filled with a few drops of a favorite fragrance, infusing your wrist (or purse or pocket) whenever the phone is turned on." It's a bargain at around $200, but again, only in China. (via Fortune link no longer working, sorry)
Any news – substantiated or not – about an SL is very welcome! Thanks! Wonder what it will be like.
Exciting! R, I tried to email you today re. Osmanthe Yunnan (I got to sniff it at last!), but my email was rejected. It is firstname.lastname@example.org, yes?
Your guess is as good as mine! “Pale grey” sounds like iris to me, but they've already done that I guess. Whatever it is, I'm sure I want it
V, do try again: I think you may have just typed comcat instead of comcast? Just got the call from Hermes and trying to decide whether to order unsniffed, so will be waiting for your opinion!
And typed too quickly: meant N, not V!
R, you're right – eyes and fingers not co-ordinated! Have tried again.
N, got it — thanks so much! My credit card is cowering in my wallet, LOL!!!
My first thought was iris too. Atually I still think it sounds like an iris.
The word now is lavender & cinders (ashes), or possibly lavender & incense, depending on where you read.
Yes, I read that too right after I posted. So instead of another Iris Silver Mist we're getting another Encens et Lavande it seems. Hmm.
My current guess is that it will be lavender with smoky-dusty woods? We shall see.
