Van Cleef & Arpels plans to launch Collection Extraordinaire in September. It will be the brand's first foray into high-end niche perfume, and will debut at around the same time as Cartier's upcoming collection, Les Heures du Parfum.
The Collection Extraordinaire fragrances, meant to pay homage to nature, are Gardénia Pétale, Orchidée Vanille, Lys Carmin, Muguet Blanc, Bois d'Iris and Cologne Noire. They will run 130€ for 75 ml.
I'll update with more details when I can find them. (via aufeminin.com)
Gardénia Pétale is a feminine floral by perfumer Nathalie Feisthauer. ["A graceful, generous, opulent fragrance that awakens the senses, Gardenia Petale captures all stages in the life of the gardenia flower. The modern composition opens with a unique accord of fresh, green and citrus notes, followed by floral touches of delicate lily-of-the-valley and exotic jasmine and finishing with the elegant, femininity of gardenia flowers in full bloom at dawn."]
Orchidée Vanille is a feminine floral by perfumer Randa Hammami. ["A floral, gourmand fragrance with asubtle blend of fruity notes (mandarin orange and litchi), combined with tasty bitter almond and dark chocolate, and accented with sensual European flourishes of Bulgarian rose and violet notes. The vanilla pod is faceted with woody cedar and balsamic tonka bean and notes of transparent white musk."]
Lys Carmin is a feminine floral by perfumer Nathalie Cetto. ["Contemporary and seductive, Lys Carmin is a sophisticated and distinguished lily of unsurpassed elegance and mystery. Enhanced by a burst of spice from pink peppercorns, the sensual lily is paired with powdery ylang-ylang to unfurl its magic. A fusion of vanilla and sandalwood completes the spell."]
Muguet Blanc is a feminine floral developed by perfumer Antoine Maisondieu. ["Muguet Blanc showcases the purity, innocence and much-anticipated beauty of one of springtime's first flowers. A green, joyous and incredibly delicate arrangement, graceful lily-of-the-valley is enhanced with exotic white peony, radiant neroli and uplifting white cedar."]
Bois d'Iris is a woody feminine fragrance by perfumer Emilie Copperman. ["Bois d'Iris imagines the scent of wood from a totally different angle, without the forest, leaves and earth. Created to replicate the scent of driftwood on the seashore, Bois d'Iris is an atypical and enchanting woody blend created by a minimalist and ultra-qualitative structure. Precious essences of exotic wood are punctuated with a vibrant, salty note of ambergris, while a beautiful powdery iris lends soft elegance,reminiscent of Tuscany."]
Cologne Noire is a spicy unisex by perfumer Mark Buxton. ["A distinctive and elegantly noble fragrance for men and women, Cologne Noire creates an aura of well-being and vitality. Fresh spices like ginger, cardamom and pepper are blended with bracing citrus notes of bergamot, bitter orange and mandarin, putting a new twist on this one-of-a-kind cologne story. The base finishes with soft, comfortable woody notes."]
