Cosmetics company MAC will launch Shadescents, a collection of six fragrances inspired by the brand's lipsticks: Candy Yum-Yum, Créme d'Nude, Lady Danger, My Heroine, Ruby Woo and Velvet Teddy.
Candy Yum-Yum ~ a fruity floral gourmand with tropical fruit and cotton candy. ["Electric fruits and a shock of pink are at the heart of Candy Yum-Yum. Pink guava gives energy to this iconic M·A·C shade. The contrast of delicate cherry blossom and sophisticated Moroccan iris bring to life the girl who likes what she wants and wants what she likes. The gourmand aspect of the scent makes it irresistible and addictive, with a flourish of pink cotton candy woven throughout and a luscious vanilla to finish."]
Créme d'Nude ~ an amber musk intended to evoke naked skin. ["The nude-coloured pigment of Crème d’Nude Lipstick inspires a scent capturing the vibrant sexiness of clean, radiant, glowing skin. A cocoon of velvet musk envelops the structure of the fragrance, while neroli emits a freshness and luminosity of sensual skin. Texture comes through with a soft butter suede accord that blends pure ambrette seeds with a lip-smooth Madagascar vanilla bean. Universal in its appeal, wearable day, night, everywhere in between."]
Lady Danger ~ a woody floriental with wild cherry. ["A dramatic fragrance, sexy and powerful, inspired by our famed fire engine-red shade. Make a head-turning entrance with a burst of golden patchouli and a touch of exotic saffron. Mouth-watering tangerine leads into a sizzling fusion of tiger orchid and jasmine. Superbly feminine, confident and centered, gorgeous black amber frames the bold floral notes. Once you leave the room, all that is left is the trail of a scent leaving them breathless…"]
My Heroine ~ a woody leather with saffron, incense, smoke and cordovan leather. ["Intoxicating and totally unexpected. A fragrance essence derived from the arresting purple of Heroine and articulated throughout the composition by rich and primal Cordovan leather. A complex of saffron, earthy labdanum and smoky incense illustrate and amplify the leather note. In the back, assertive patchouli and luscious tobacco provide a seductive and sinister finish to this edgy fragrance."]
Ruby Woo ~ a woody floral featuring red leather. ["An arresting rouge-red fragrance inspired by the legendary shade of Ruby Woo. Sultry deep red leather commands attention, while luscious bites of mouth-watering wild cherry pop with rich saffron and pink pepper, making a memorable first impression. A scent of suede violet, Orris Florentine and timeless Centifolia rose adds a hint of floral. Finally, a sensual trail of bold sandalwood and mahogany wood leaves them desperate for more."]
Velvet Teddy ~ with wild honey and creamy musk. ["A silky smooth current of wild honey and creamy musk runs through this oriental fragrance inspired by the sensuality of our Velvet Teddy shade. An opening of bright bergamot and spicy ginger zest is tempered with a rich and sensual tobacco flower. The heart of the fragrance is one of soft golden mimosa, vanilla orchid and an almost edible wild honey accord. A beautifully rendered finish of liquid musk, smoky papyrus root and an addictive infusion of exotic tonka bean make this your go-everywhere-and-anywhere fragrance."]
