4711 has launched the Floral Collection, with three fresh florals: Rose, Jasmine and Lilac. In addition, four new fragrances kick off the landscape-inspired 4711 Acqua Colonia Intense series: Floral Fields of Ireland, Sunny Seaside of Zanzibar, Wakening Woods of Scandinavia and Pure Breeze of Himalaya.
Floral Collection Rose ~ "No other flower represents love and romance like the rose: Its gentle, lovely fragrance represents the femininity of a woman and has always been the symbol of lovers. A vibrant, fresh start of mandarin, green tea and bergamot introduces the light, floral composition. At the heart of the bouquet, the delicate, fruity aroma of the rose is transparently enveloped by a touch of freesia and cyclamen. Nestling between soft musk and sandalwood, the fragrance leaves a delicate, gentle aura."
Floral Collection Jasmine ~ "The rich floral fragrance of white jasmine portrays a very sensual femininity. The sweet and intensive aroma of this floral essence is said to have a seductive effect. The light and citrus-fresh prelude to a trio composed of neroli, tea and bergamot gently surrounds the opulent jasmine blossoms, which elegantly exude their nectar and radiate floral sensuality in the heart of the fragrance. In the background, wood nuances and the velvety aroma of the tonka bean with a hint of musk ensure a lasting, pleasurable fragrance." Additional notes include cedar.
Floral Collection Lilac ~ "The lilac is an enchanting harbinger of spring and evokes pleasing memories of a garden in full bloom. Velvety and soft, this flower essence exudes a special kind of magic. The distinctive sweet scent of lilac in all its sumptuous facets is accompanied by fresh, light fragrance notes such as bergamot, freesia and peach. In the base note, the composition culminates in a cloud of musk and sandalwood." Additional notes include rose and jasmine.
Acqua Colonia Intense Floral Fields of Ireland ~ developed by perfumer Nelly Hachem-Ruiz. "Floral Fields of Ireland conjures up mental images of Ireland's colourful meadow landscapes. Wild flowers, which sway along the hilly landscapes in the breeze, exude a floral feeling of closeness to nature. The top note of this creation opens with the rich and velvety osmanthus flower, noted for its fine perfume. Subtly embedded in mandarin and lemon, it blends into the opulent notes of black wood mimosa and white jasmine in the heart. This intoxicating floral charm continues in the long-lasting base through the use of the molecule operanide and woody notes. A special highlight: The black wood mimosa, a particularly beautiful and rare specimen of mimosa, grows in the province of Munster, among other places, and has been chosen as a representative of wild flowers in Ireland. In olfactory terms, it exudes floral, green, aqueous violet, waxy and honey-like notes and gives the heart of this fragrance its unique, floral character as well as an intense, lively signature." Additional notes include orange blossom, sandalwood and cedar.
Acqua Colonia Intense Sunny Seaside of Zanzibar ~ developed by perfumer Daphné Bugey. "Sunny Seaside of Zanzibar awakens the yearning for the white sandy beaches, the turquoise sea and the year-round sunshine of Zanzibar – an intense feeling of remembrance of the summer, captivating, attractive, unforgettable. In the top note, the sea breeze is invoked by the refreshing, aqueous fruit notes of the watermelon and a subtle touch of star anise. The combination of intensely fragrant frangipani blossom, coconut and musk makes us feel the warmth of the sun. An interesting interplay of vanilla, cedarwood and vetiver rounds off this modern oriental floral fragrance. A special component: the vanilla planifolia used in this fragrance, which is grown in tropical climates such as Mexico and South America, the Caribbean, on islands in the Indian Ocean and also on Zanzibar, gives the fragrance warm woody olfactory notes, a sensual foundation and a feeling of bliss."
Acqua Colonia Intense Wakening Woods of Scandinavia ~ developed by perfumer Geza Schön. "Wakening Woods of Scandinavia is reminiscent of impressive conifers, moss-covered rocks, flowing waters and picturesque lakes in the Scandinavian forests. An olfactory interpretation of untouched nature that seems to awaken when life is breathed into it by the delicate morning dew and the warming rays of the sun. This unisex creation with its sparkling aromatic top note of bergamot, coriander and pink pepper lures you straight into the fragrance universe of Acqua Colonia. The surprising floral bouquet of rose and jasmine gently sweeps over the perfume like a fresh breeze through the trees, enhancing the woody character of the fragrance and giving it a feminine touch. The composition is rounded off by a long-lasting base of patchouli and fir absolute with the distinctive woodiness of the fir tree. This particular fragrance stands out: fir absolute, obtained from liquid extracts of pine needles and twigs and long valued as an oil in aromatherapy, instantly transports us to the most beautiful forest landscapes thanks to its aromatic balsamic, smoky woody and slightly fruity notes. Additional notes include osmanthus and frankincense.
Acqua Colonia Intense Pure Breeze of Himalaya ~ developed by perfumer Fanny Bal. "Pure Breeze of Himalaya pays homage to the most spectacular high mountains in the world – the Himalayas, a paradise for nature lovers and explorers – and overwhelms with a fragrance world of unique visibility and crystal clear air. The citric freshness of the fragrance is provided by tangy and juicy notes of bergamot and mandarin. Together they meet the spice of pink pepper, metallic accents of rose oxide and fresh notes of the fragrance harmony Living Mountain Air – as clear, as illuminating as a deep breath. Novel tonic notes and mineral accents make this heart note truly special. Musk and cashmere give the fragrance its gentle and long-lasting finish. The perfumery sensation: the Living Mountain Air scent has been extracted by Living Technology, which enables the chemical replication of the olfactory profiles of special localities. This makes it possible to reproduce fragrances which are limited and difficult to access. It gives the composition its cool, ozone tones and the expression of unique freshness. Additional notes include lily of the valley and ambroxane.
The 4711 Floral Collection fragrances are available in 100 ml; the Acqua Colonia Intense fragrances are in 50 and 170 ml.
