Kurkdjian creates latest Carven – L'Eau de Toilette
Francis Kurkdjian has created the latest fragrance for Carven
: Carven L'Eau de Toilette
. The fragrance is a flanker to Carven Le Parfum
, launched last year, which was also created by Kurkdjian.
Carven L'Eau de Toilette contains top notes of lemon, sweet pea and peony; freesia, hyacinth and wisteria make up the heart of the fragrance; and sandalwood, blonde wood and musk feature in the base notes.
Kurkdjian says “I imagined Carven L’Eau de Toilette like a lightweight piece of clothing, with an elegant cut and a decidedly “city” look. As easy to wear as Le Parfum but made of a different fabric, probably more airy. Quite naturally, the original Jasmine became Freesia, illustrating its totally floral lightness. I also reworked the woody harmony in my composition, so it would blend delicately with the Musks.”
Carven L'Eau de Toilette
is available in 30ml, 50ml and 100ml Eau de Toilette, and also features a range of 'Light' Body Products (Body Cream, Bath & Shower Gel, Deodorant Spray) to suit the lighter fragrances.
In the UK the fragrance is available now exclusively at Selfridges with a Nationwide roll-out on 10th May 2014.
In the US the fragrance is available exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue.
