As previously reported, Serge Lutens will launch Gris Clair into the export line later this year:
This wandering pollen, like ashes dropped on a dead city, deploys its humble crowning with despair in the name of light from an adolescent sky.
This magic dust brought by wind, has come to this austere and arid landscape made of rocks, luminous and sublime.
Inaccessible, surrounded by stones, this flower – is it really a flower? – has made dew its watering hole. Insensitive to the burning of the sun, miracle in abandon, it survives.
A more detailed list of notes for the latest from Giorgio Armani's Armani Prive line, Cuir Amethyste: the perfume includes bergamot, coriander, crystalline rose, violet, birch, benzoin, labdanum, leather accord, patchouli and Bourbon vanilla. It seems to have launched in France last year, but as of this writing, still hasn't made it to the United States.
