Alexander McQueen has launched The McQueen Collection, a collection of 8 fragrances — Amber Garden, Blazing Lily, Celtic Rose, Dark Papyrus, Everlasting Dream, Luminous Orchid, Sacred Osmanthus and Vetiver Moss — "built around" 2016’s McQueen.
Amber Garden ~ "A rich oriental scent, Amber Garden fuses comforting cardamom, nutmeg and cinnamon to represent warm incense and benzoin trees."
Blazing Lily ~ "Infused with the mysterious beauty of nature, Blazing Lily effortlessly combines the deep floral scent of red lilies with peppery pimento."
Celtic Rose ~ "A delicately aromantic [sic] floral scent, Celtic Rose's sweet essence is formed of feminine rose petal, while spice and pepper at the base create a rich finish."
Dark Papyrus (shown above right) ~ "Infused with the mysterious beauty of nature, Dark Papyrus effortlessly combines the juicy scent of blackcurrants with spicy and woody papyrus."
Everlasting Dream ~ "A woody scent enlightened by the salt-heavy breeze of the sea, Everlasting Dream evokes scenes of mineral coasts and barren seashores." Additional notes include cedar.
Luminous Orchid ~ "An intoxicating oriental fragrance, Luminous Orchid blends the floral scent of the fuchsia orchid with the warmth of roasted sesame. Finishing with a rich heart of bitter coffee and Tonka bean, it transports you to exotic locations."
Sacred Osmanthus ~ "Sacred Osmanthus exudes an uplifting fragrance produces by light flowers of the osmanthus tree. Enhanced by Lapsang Souchong tea leaves, this floral scent gives way to a smoky, leathery heart."
Vetiver Moss ~ "Harnessing the essential and mysterious beauty of nature, Vetiver Moss's natural orris root heart evokes the tranquil sense of walking across windswept moors."
