I was lucky enough and delighted to be invited on a trip to Paris last week, to celebrate the unveiling of a lovely new fragrance. A luxurious and feminine fragrance by the name of Soleil Lalique. The launch was set in an ornate and elegant building in the historic 13th arrondisment, amongst a leafy enclave and with a scent in the air that would soon become pleasantly familiar.
Upon arriving, it was an amazing assault on the senses! We were treated to champagne and petit fours at every corner, accompanied by a tour that took us on a journey of how Lalique’s first perfume came to be.
Inspired by free-spirited woman drawn to the sun and a zest for life, you can instantly sense how feminine and fresh this fragrance is. It has top notes of mandarin (cardamon & bitter almond), heart notes of cafe latte (pear granita & jasmine), and musky base notes (sandalwood & pink praline). All of which create an intoxicating combination and are designed to elicit a real sense of that glorious burst of sunshine.
And it was a delight to be given the opportunity to explore in-depth and taste these ingredients at an interactive workshop area. It was here that I really got a sense of the passion and care that has gone into creating this scent. It really resonated with my need for being carefree and letting go.
The bottle design is something to enjoy and surely a concept that will entice buyers to make a purchase before they have even appreciated the full scent! It is sleek and simplistic yet with an air of extravagance, synonymous with the rays of the sun as the designers would have you imagine. Sunshine in a bottle indeed, as the perfume slogan is written.
The fragrance is available in three sizes: 30ml, 50ml and 100ml spray. The 100ml version is adourned with an exclusive and delicate charm bracelet, inspired by an art deco Lalique earring design and finished with a golden disc tab that bears the name of the perfume.
I was kindly gifted the 100ml bottle with the beautiful bracelet and it is safe to say that this will certainly be my go-to scent of the summer.
