Tommy Hilfiger Woman – Its creator says this perfume was inspired by a woman who is smart, chic and elegant, and it reflects the simple glamour of the American woman.
The fruity and floral fragrance includes notes of pink grapefruit, mandarin, raspberry, bergamot, Egyptian lotus, pink Yulan magnolia and Moroccan jasmine, vanilla, sandalwood, patchouli and vetiver.
Available only at Hilfiger counters at Super Pharm. NIS 360.
Burberry Body – The scent was launched this year in what was described as “the most exciting launch ever created.” It is meant to capture the iconic spirit of the brand today in a “striking and sensual way.” Actress-model Rosie Huntington-Whitley is the face of the new fragrance, wrapped only in an iconic raincoat.
The fragrance itself is luxurious, with a composition of fresh absinthe, peach and freesia, midtones of roses and iris and a base of sandalwood, cashmerean, musk, amber and vanilla.
Available at all Pharm chains and perfumeries. NIS 580 for 85 ml. and NIS 450 for 60 ml.
Tom Ford – Private Collection and Signature Collection – For the first time in Israel, the distinctive collection of fragrances by Tom Ford will be available at select stores. The designer, who is known as the modern Midas, positions his fragrances at the highest end, with prices to match.
The Private Collection presents 16 nuances with unique accords of scents from the lexicon of scent artists. It is a unisex collection of scents, each based on only one note – such as amber, tabac, gardenia – and then develops into more complex combination of rare components. The result is a collection of sophisticated and intriguing perfumes, the most irresistible of which is the Musk Pure, a soft heart of white musk enriched with floral citrus notes.
The Signature Collection includes four perfumes – The Black Orchid for women, Tom Ford for Men, Tom Ford Extreme and Grey Vetiver.
The Black Orchid starts with notes of black truffle, ylang-ylang, bergamot and blackberries, followed by dark flowers such as black orchid, black plum, black pepper, rum and lotus, and finished with notes of pineapple, vanilla, ginger and coconut, cinnamon, patchouli and algom, to name but a few.
Grey Vetiver will be very popular with the confident businessman – an elegant and sophisticated blend of very masculine yet refined scents.
Prices vary. Black Orchid, NIS 450 for 50 ml., NIS 650 for 100 ml. Grey Vetiver, NIS 450 for 50 ml. and NIS 595 for 100 ml. In the Private Collection, the prices are higher.
White Musk, NIS 795 for 50 ml., and NIS 995 for 100 ml. of the other perfumes.
The Signature Collection will be available at April and Hamashbir. The Private Collection will be available at only a few of the shops in the main shopping centers.
