    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.

    the collection will be launching Saturday:

    With names varying from Dans Paris and La Peau Nue to Reptile and Nightclubbing, the fragrances will have an initially limited distribution – just Celine’s three boutiques in Paris – plus the perfume store – and its Madison Avenue, New York flagship.

    By mid-month one will be able to buy the range in Celine’s network of boutiques in Europe and Japan, before all become available on Celine’s e-commerce platform end November.

    "Day" fragrances:

    Parade
    Bergamot, neroli, vetiver, musc
    Tribute to the elegance of the dandys and rockers, "entre nonchalance et tradition"

    Saint-Germain-Des-Prés
    Petitgrain, neroli, iris butter, heliothrope
    Rememberance of Hedi's favourite neighborhood in Paris, expressing "l'insolence de la jeunesse" (insolence of the youth)

    Cologne Française
    Neroli, fig tree, iris butter, tree moss
    Inspired by french tradition of perfumed linens and baths

    Dans Paris
    Bergamot, coriander, laurel flower, vanilla
    Inspired by Hedi's youth and parisian façades as seen from a boat on the Seine

    La Peau Nue
    Absolute rose, iris butter, rice powder, vetiver
    Tribute to feminine 70's icons, with an androgenous twist

    Eau de Californie
    Bergamot, Palo Santo, tree moss, patchouli
    Memories of Hedi's years in California, burning Palo Santo wood

    "Evening" fragrances:

    Reptile
    Cedar, pepper, tree moss, leather
    Reminds of rockstar's stage outfits

    Black Tie
    Iris butter, cedar, vanilla, musc
    Very elegant, evocation of a structured tailored suit or smoking

    Nightclubbing
    Galbanum, patchouli, tree moss, musc
    Memories from parisian nights at the Palace or Bain Douches, when Hedi was 17

    With the connection to the original Dior Privee line, I'm really hoping there is a fragrance reminiscent of Mitzah in the line. If anyone gets to sniff these and can comment, I'd appreciate it.

    The only connection is the first three that Hedi released when he created the Privee line, Mitzah was added long after he left the house.

    Correct. The original 3 are my forever favorites.

    I smell the entire collection minus the 2 that will be released JULY 2020.

    My thoughts:

    Overall LOVE - orris and musk everywhere.
    Throughout the collection I got the very nostalgic idealized vibe - plastic-y? (and that's a positive!)

    Parade
    sharp, clean, idealized "cologne" ( i do want to revisit)

    Saint-Germain-Des-Prés
    a bit Tide-ish, did not smell the drydown. I got vibes of pastis although not present in the notes.

    Cologne Française
    neo-classic cologne - fig makes the mix quite interesting. initially smelling and not recognizing the fig note, in my mind it was a familiar but uncommon wood - almost medicinal - ginseng-like. also it's listed as "fig tree" not fig the fruit?

    Dans Paris
    almond pastry

    La Peau Nue
    lipstick rose, après l'ondee, loose lips with a splash of champagne.

    Eau de Californie
    pretty. simple. literal. assumed the most popular - sold out on first day

    Reptile
    syrupy,leathery,powder, steamy,...mixed with the synthetic taste/smell of generic pills(?) maybe * eye roll* Chandler Burr's descriptor of meth really got to everyone's head....
    sold out as well

    Black Tie
    soft booziness ...almost like vanilla extract (the bottle i bought)

    Nightclubbing
    CIGARETTES + NEW CAR SMELL.....fading into CIGARETTE SMOKE on skin....mixed with trace amount of last night's perfume.

    thanks for the info, most likely gonna have to blind buy as there's no way for me to test these out. Parade and Cologne Française sound ideal for daily use.

    How do Hedi's Celine fragrances compare with his Dior ones? I have Cologne Blanche, Bois d'Argent, Eau Noire, Dior Homme, Dior Homme Cologne, and Fahrenheit 32. Cologne Blanche is probably my favourite with that almond note.

    I would guess that Black Tie and Dans Paris is the spiritual successor of Eau Noire and Cologne Blanche, respectively? Bois d'Argent has been a classic since its release. Do you imagine any of the upcoming Celine ones that would hold that place?

    Black Tie and Eau Noire are spiritually the same - Hedi's favorite/personal fragrance he wears - eau noire is lavender overdoes that is so well balanced. Black tie is way more subdued and contained - soft.

    Dans Paris is more gourmand-lite while Cologne Blanche is fresh and soapy (I am frighteningly low on CB....about 10mL left)

    I would say the potential classic here is Reptile. While hard to ignore and delete Burr's writing and comments, it's a beautiful fragrance.

    Original Dior Homme is somewhat reincarnated into La Peau Nue ....we have absolutely confirmed his love for iris, orris, lipstick-y/powdery smells.

    I asked my fried at celine, and he said there was no mention - only Hedi. but i am sure there were perfume technicians involved.
