Lancome launch new fragrance, Idôle, in super slim bottle

by Judith Brockless, 10th September, 2019

Lancôme has launched its new feminine fragrance, Idôle, accompanied by the new face of the brand, American actress and singer, Zendaya Coleman.

Described by Lancôme as ‘The Scent Of Confidence And Femininity To Conquer The World’, the musky floral chypre was created by three perfumers: Shyamala Maisondieu, Adriana Medina and Nadège Le Garlantezec.

Idôle contains notes of sustainably sourced Turkish Isparta rose essence, Centifolia rose, bergamot, pear, Jasmine grandiflorum, and a new "clean and glow" accord ‘that is set to re-write the white page on which every woman starts her story’.

The Idôle bottle, designed by architect and industrial designer Chafik Gasmi, is one of the slimmest in the world at just 15mm thick.

Coleman (above) commented:

”I am thrilled to be the face of this new Lancôme fragrance. Idôle is a perfume that has meaning. I like the fact that it's fresh and light. I am very particular about perfumes, and Idôle smells absolutely beautiful and I love it."

Idôle is available now in three refillable formats (25ml, 50ml and 75ml).

        This sounds like something my granddaughter might enjoy.

        I do have to complement them and say the pear note was a nice touch, something I wish more fragrances would do, but unfortunately this fragrance was less than amazing.

        Don't get me wrong, the ingredient note list is a wonderful combination, but this is still your standard department store perfume, which these days is not really saying much.

        (Although maybe the pear and vanilla together was a little much and gives this too much of a gourmand edge, think it would have been better if they had chosen one or the other)

        Oh, also the perfume isn't really any stronger than rose water, though it does still seem to have decent longevity.

        The opening is a little herbally but that soon dies down.

        I don't know why this is classified as a chypre floral, it's closer to a sweet musk.

        Reading some of the other reviews, this seems to be a kind of love it or kind of hate it fragrance, depending on the person. And that's not because of the pear note.

        Sounds like L'Oreal is recycling the discontinued Armani Idole.

        A nice scent, very work-safe, but easy to break the cap. It's plastic and not metal. My cap broke on the first day I owned a bottle.

        I like the top note (pear) and then jasmine opens up (my favorite note), but I can’t call this fragrance unique. Unfortunately, there are many similar fragrances now.
