Sunday SCENT N°3
Today’s pick - my Sunday scent No. 3 - is a really special one. HELMUT LANG has finally returned to the world of perfume, for good, and that’s something I haven’t been able to fully comprehend yet. The wonderful creation that I chose in celebration of this is the classic EAU DE PARFUM. Find out here what makes this creation one of my all-time favourites:
This scent reminds me of: Skin, touch, feel. Yes, this perfume is definitely something that perfectly reflects the fashion statement of the brand. Touch and feel the simple way - but nevertheless super intense and extraordinary. When you spray it on your skin it feels like you’re wearing one of those elegant and yet simply chic pieces, clean cut, solidly coloured, but completely impressive.
What it feels like: It feels like wearing a second skin. Something smooth and sensual that surrounds you. And every breath you take is full of feelings. Feelings that remind you of something remarkable - a night, an occasion… To put it simply: something special… special, but for your eyes only. Making the only thing that matters, at any given time, you and your personal moment.
For: EAU DE PARFUM is definitely a statement. An olfactory creation that brings together modernity and tradition - perfectly reflected in the high quality ingredients with which it was created. Therefore I can see a modern woman with ambitions wearing this perfume - chic, simple, but also sporty, and possessed with knowledge of this classical beauty. Beauty without borders, beauty without confession and age. Sensual - at this moment in time. But a man also creates a significant aura wearing EAU DE PARFUM – no question, only a real perfume lover can deal with something as unique as this, someone not afraid to show who he is - likewise simply sensual and definitely also cool.
Side note: Like his well-known fashion designs, the fragrances of HELMUT LANG are also legendary. Sadly, production stopped in 2002. But 12 years later, in 2014, they came back: EAU DE PARFUM is one of them, alongside two further creations - COLOGNE and CURION, which are all remarkable unisex fragrances.
