Don Juan – For the olfactory senses

Mediterranean, spicy or sensual – the new attractants score high in versatility.

If you want to be a successful seducer, you need more than the power of persuasion. In the end, the nose decides, ultimately we are ruled by pheromones. But we humans play a skillful olfactory trick on nature by using perfume. The current highlights are bewitching with Mediterranean, spicy or sensual ingredients. Hugo has been one of the bestsellers on the shelf for 20 years. The classic has now been rejuvenated and is turning the fragrance world upside down with Reversed, combining Calabrian bergamot, grapefruit, rosemary essence and vetiver. Grey The One from Dolce & Gabbana creates Mediterranean freshness with grapefruit, coriander, basil, cardamom, lavender, geranium, clary sage, vetiver, patchouli, labdanum resin and tobacco. Those who prefer their fragrances a little more wicked would do well to try Guilty Pour Homme from Gucci. Sensual seduction is promised with a mix of lavender, Amalfi lemons, African orange blossom, patchouli, Virginia cedar and vanilla. L’Eau Super Majeure d’Issey will certainly join the line of the best classics. The fragrance combines the lightness of the Mediterranean with Southern temperament. This is created through a combination of clary sage, rosemary essence, black salt from dark patchouli, strong amber wood notes, cashmeran, tonka beans, Madagascan vanilla, leather and smoke. Lovers of unusual and uncompromising perfumes reach for Serge Lutens. The career changer, who began his career as a photographer for Vogue in the 60s, now indulges his penchant for the artistic and magical in his fragrances. Also true for L’Innommable. Benzoin resin and cumin take centre stage. The new Le Gemme-Trilogie from Bulgari is very much influenced by musk – the favourite fragrance of perfumer Jacques Cavallier. Whether you choose the elegant Opalon with neroli, amber and ginger, the fiery Yasep with mandarine, Szechuan pepper and sandal wood or the mysterious Falkar with agarwood and leather – the super nose has yet again created a masterpiece.

Super ClarinsMen Innovation

HYDRA RESIST PHYTO COMPLEX

Everyone has 24 hours in a day, and yet sometimes that isn’t enough, especially for men! A demanding work life, sports activities, going out with friends, a busy private life, difficult mornings… Men’s skin is sorely tested and can become dehydrated easily due to lifestyle habits, shaving, and other daily external aggressions. Also, testosterone can weaken the skin’s barrier function which in turn leads to moisture loss and dehydration. This is the new challenge that ClarinsMen Super Moisture Care takes on: deeply moisturize men’s skin, even in extreme conditions!

This new unique complex combines two plant extracts selected for their super hydrating ability. Organic houseleek lends its super hydro-resistant power to help offset the negative effects of testosterone: it helps retain moisture even in extreme conditions by reinforcing the skin’s surface barrier at these tight junctions. Organic leaf of life extract encourages the natural hydration of the skin, to help promote the production of ‘sponge molecules’ in every skin layer. The result? Skin feels supple and comfortable.
