Ralph Lauren will launch The Ralph Lauren Collection Fragrances, with 10 unisex fragrances "positioned around the opulent experience of travel". There are two fragrances each for five destinations: Riviera Dream, Legacy of English Elegance, Song of America, Portrait of New York and Treasures of Safari.
Legacy of English Elegance
Rose ~ developed by perfumer Calice Becker, with black currant, Damascena rose and patchouli. ["Exquisite and full-bodied Damascena Rose is enhanced with fruity Black Currant accord and subtle Patchouli to create a classically feminine scent that balances fresh green notes with warm honey wood accents, reminiscent of a lush London garden."]
White Tea ~ developed by perfumer Carlos Benaim. ["Leafy and subtle woody notes of Maté leaves open the smooth White Tea accord. Fruity Apricot and the floral texture of Osmanthus add graceful accents to the aroma of tea leaves for this delicate blend that honors a grand tradition of high tea in the English countryside."]
Portrait of New York
Vetiver ~ developed by perfumer Harry Fremont, with cardamom, black pepper and vetiver. ["A rich fragrance of pure distinction, the smoky woodiness of the finest Haitian Vetiver is enhanced with contrasting fresh Green Cardamom and fiery Black Pepper, capturing the enchantment of a New York City soirée."]
White Lily ~ developed by perfumer Harry Fremont, with pink pepper, Casablanca lily and vanilla. ["A dramatic bouquet inspired by the grandeur of Ralph Lauren's Madison Avenue Mansion, featuring captivating White Casablanca Lily, a voluptuous white floral with hints of peach, nuanced with creamy Madagascar Vanilla and spicy Pink Pepper."]
Lime ~ developed by perfumer Calice Becker, with a headspace note taken from a thawing frozen lime. ["The freshest essence of Lime is masterfully captured and nuanced with aromatic Lavandin, vivid Bergamot and Cedrat for an invigorating fragrance that conjures the pristine brightness of a coastal retreat."]
Orange Flower ~ developed by perfumer Harry Fremont. ["The purity of Orange Flower blossom is captured in the freshest way. A luminous fragrance that carries the elegance of a garden party, featuring a sparkling blend of delicate Orange Flower bloom with Neroli and accented with juicy Mandarin and warm amber woods."]
Song of America
Sage ~ developed by perfumer Harry Fremont. ["Rugged yet refined, Sage possesses a rare balance of green, aromatic and chocolate notes. This spirited blend of herbaceous Sage, fruity Green Fig accord and earthy ambery Fir Balsam is inspired by the majestic beauty of the Rocky Mountains."]
Magnolia ~ developed by perfumer Carlos Benaim. ["The rare bloom of Magnolia offers a brightness and velvety floral texture. The fragrance opens with bright Lemon and finishes with woody Patchouli, translating the warm brilliance of an early spring sunrise into a fragrance of casual grace."]
Treasures of Safari
Amber ~ developed by perfumer Carlos Benaim. ["One of the most treasured accords in perfumery, precious Amber accord is textured with dark Bourbon Vanilla, rich Labdanum resin and enveloping Benzoin to create a warm and velvety fragrance, painting a vision of a sunset over the Sahara."]
Oud ~ developed by perfumer Carlos Benaim. ["Oud, one of the world's most precious oils, is masterfully blended with smoky Guaiac Wood, smoldering incense and earthy Cedarwood to create an exciting, exotic scent with the spirit of the African Savannah."]
