French niche house Divine has launched L'Être Aimé, new fragrances for women and men:
A woman, a man, sharing one name : l’être aimé.
The title-role of this double composition is played by a fiery bloom : the everlasting flower. Its perfume, filled with spices and sunshine, is so warm and so intense that it will linger on your skin and in your memory. Naturally, the two versions of l’être aimé are very different : one, feminine, flowery, sun-filled and joyous ; the other, masculine, lively, aromatic, woody and boldly spiced. But as you will discover, the everlasting flower is their secret bond, bringing recognition and applause to each one.
Both fragrances were developed by perfumer Yann Vasnier.
Divine L'Être Aimé Femme is "soaring with sun-drenched notes : neroli, bergamot and nectarine. Noble and spicy flowers at its heart : jasmine, lily, tincture of rose and everlasting flowers. In the background, amber and exotic woods : cistus labdanum, sandalwood, vetiver and vanilla." Available in 50, 100 and 200 ml splash Eau de Parfum or 9, 30 and 50 ml spray.
Divine L'Être Aimé Homme is "soaring with aromatic notes : bergamot and tincture of lavender, ginger and basil. At its heart, a spicy blend of celery, cardamom and everlasting flowers. In the background, amber and exotic woods : cistus and patchouli, sandalwood and vetiver." Available in 60, 100 or 150 ml splash Eau de Parfum or in 50 ml spray.
Grain de Musc just reviewed these and they sound pretty fab.
Thanks, will have to go read although immortelle is not usually a favorite of mine.
I really like the Divine fragrances though none of the feminine ones were “me” somehow. They seem wonderful quality and not terribly expensive but very French if that makes sense. I have high hopes of these two.
Yes, the line is wonderful, and the feminine ones are all beautifully done, but the only ones I love are the men's…
