    Default NEW: La Collection Celine Haute Parfumerie

    Still not much information but should be interesting as, amongst others, 'Dior Homme' and 'Eau Noire' both were released unter the direction of Hedi Slimane when he was at Dior Homme. Hopefully he will do something as interesting for Celine...

    The scents will be $220 per 100 milliliters.

    1. Saint-Germain-des-Prés

    According to Burr, it smells like:
    - “A work of impressionism.”
    - “The scent of this specific, chic, moneyed Paris neighborhood and the Parisian families who have lived there for generations.”
    - Blurred photographs of those families who live there.

    2. Reptile

    According to Burr, it smells like:
    - “The scents of black pepper and crystal meth.”
    - “At once edible and thrillingly poisonous.”
    - “A guy before us in a python jacket and toting a gun.”
    - “An opaque, dangerous-looking, vulnerable-feeling man in liquid form.”

    According to Slimane, it smells like:
    - “A glittering olfactory kaleidoscope of all the rock stars that I have photographed and dressed for the stage over the past 25 years.”
    - “An elegant top note, while immoral and poisonous notes build in, leaving an addictive patina smelling of powder, incense, stardust and glitter.”


    3. Cologne Française

    According to Burr, it smells like:
    - “Shadowed, dappled and warm.”
    - “Sweet and soft.”

    According to Slimane, it smells like:
    - “A trompe l’oeil classicism.”
    - “Desire.”
    - “A kind of femininity and softness in contradiction with a masculine olfactory structure.”

    4. Rimbaud

    According to Burr, it smells like:
    - “The poet’s [Rimbaud’s] youth.”

    According to Slimane, it smells like:
    - “The idea of being 17 years old, the realm of possibilities.”
    - “Teenage subtle fragility but also the spleen.”

    5. Nightclubbing

    According to Burr, it smells like:
    - “Sharply focused photos of the club at 4 p.m., doors open to air it out a bit; the hot lights are off but the hot metal scent lingers on the leather of the booth seats.”
    - He does not recommend this scent “for a hot evening at Sound in L.A.”

    According to Slimane, it smells like:
    - “Nights I spent growing up as a club kid in Paris from age 15 at Le Palace or Les Bains Douches.”
    - “Strictly Parisian, smoky and as decadent as can be.”

    6. Black-Tie

    According to Slimane, it smells like:
    - “A strict interpretation of my style in fashion, a sharp and dark composition, completely androgynous.”

    7. Bois Dormant

    According to Burr, it smells like:
    - “The smoke of burning wood, the fir tree in the winter cold.”

    According to Slimane, it smells:
    - “Aristocratic.”
    - “Like the library of a Parisian hôtel particulier from the 18th century.”

    8–9. Dans Paris and Parade

    According to Slimane, they smell like:
    “A form of purely French neoclassicism.” Especially Parade. He likes to wear that one for day time.

    Sounds more like marketing than a review. After Tuscan Leather I suppose it's vogue now to want to smell like an abstract of a drug; however at least cocaine has an image of sexiness and riches whereas meth is missing teeth. I will not be surprised when these smell uninspired.
