Knowing which fragrance to wear, when, how and why is something every woman worth her sophistication should know at her fingertips. And to give her a helping hand, luxury French brand Laggridore have launched four new perfumes – one for each season of the year and all named as such.
There are many aspects of this product that make it totally luxurious: the presentation, the manner in which it is applied and the fine detail that has gone into producing it. Many centuries ago, perfumes started as solids, when scents were worn in tiny jewelled pots, around the neck, like the Egyptians. Laggridore has taken inspiration from this ancient root of perfume to create a solid powder scent.
The gesture of delicately applying the scent with the fingertips is a rather touching and sensual one and part of a beauty routine. From the moment you feel the light silky texture on your finger, you can feel it melt into your skin. The powder is made so that it blends easily into the skin without leaving a residue unlike liquid perfume that can stain fabrics when sprayed. You can gently massage it into the wrist, neck and other pulse points, knowing that the fragrance will last for hours on end.
That’s because the concentration of perfume is around 31%, which considering the average high street perfume is around 9%, is rather powerful. This concentration comes from a special micro-capsulation process that allows for a more concentrated level of true perfume and is how Laggridore have been able to create this solid perfume product. The perfume is also made100% without alcohol and so is much kinder on even the most sensitive of skins.
But this perfume offers a lot more than just a scent.
The intricate presentation of this product oozes class from the moment it is encased in a silk draw-string pouch lined with velvet. The round jeweled box is made from metals that are covered in a 24k pre-gold flash layer. The perfume powder is imprinted with a different design for each seasonal scent and with Latin style lettering on the exterior of the jewel compact. The exterior also has a different design for each season and comes from a hand sculpted mold. The beautiful case is decorated with Florentine beauties which have been meticulously engraved with infinite care.
The style is unique, exuberant, esoteric and filled with poetry.
The sophistication of the symbolic details, make this a timeless treasure transcending fashions and a must have accessory in any woman’s handbag. All four scents are as unique as the seasons themselves. Spring is a gentle, fresh, floral green scent with a blend of citrus, green tea and white flowers, while the Summer scent is more youthful, oriental, fruity and floral. The Autumn scent takes on more florally tones with magnolia, iris, and patchouli. And the Winter fragrance offers a more oriental accent with rose, jasmine, vanilla peach blossoms, all featuring prominently.
The Summer and Spring scent are already available to buy online from www.laggridore.com while the Winter and Autumn fragrances will appear in the New Year. One thing is for sure though, using this perfume really becomes a sensual experience, an intimate touch a woman will want to live season after season.
