Fleur du Mal x Kilian – Scented Lingerie

Ladies and gentlemen, this is amazing! For the festive season, Kilian Hennessy and Jennifer Zuccarini unveil a capsule collection of scented lingerie, combining the expertise and aesthetic unique to each brand. And it is perfumed with one of my favorite fragrances: KILIANicon’s LOVE, don’t be shy.

KILIAN Love, Don’t be Shy Eau de Parfum –
Orange Blossom, Vanilla and Marshmallow, 50ml

iconEach piece in the collection features handcrafted Leavers lace from the Solstiss lace mill in Caudry, France that is woven from threads scented with microcapsules holding KILIAN’s LOVE, don’t be shy fragrance. Taking inspiration from the marshmallow, this fragrance is a sweet treat for sensuous connoisseurs that perfectly compliments Fleur du Mal’s feminine chic designs and continues KILIAN’s mission to make perfume visible.

Great news is that you can wash your lingerie pieces up to 10 times by keeping the encapsulated fragrance within the lace.

Those will vamp up every outfit: Lace cuffs by Fleur du Mal x Kilian

The pieces are now on sale on the fleurdumal.com website and will be as well available in Kilian boutiques and exclusively at Printemps department store (Boulevard Haussmann) in Paris from November 15, 2017.

My Favourite Niche Fragrances

IMG_2114

I have to admit that I am a total fragrance addict. Scent is such an important part of your identity. It communicates more than your clothes because one can smell you without having eye contact or talking to you.

We all know the big perfume blockbuster brands, but there are plenty of niche fragrance houses which deserve attention as they use very luxurious ingredients. And after all, who likes to smell the same as everybody else? Today, I would like to show you my eight favorite perfumes that you could call my personal signature scents, like my wardrobe of fragrances.

Spotted first on the F/W 2013 runway and now on most fashionistas, such as Natalie Massenet and Anya Ziourova during fashion week, this jewelry-candy is flying off the shelves.
