Bronze Goddess Lumière
Eau de Parfum Spray

Embrace the warmth of a tropical paradise with this sensual fragrance that is as relaxing as it is enticing. The freshness of a distant, lush island comes alive with the scent of Frangipani. Its slightly fruity and rosy presence paints a picture of a sunrise landscape. Bronze Goddess’ signature feminine sensuality glows from the heart of the scent, as rich, exotic Jasmine Sambac is met with the brightness of Lemon Leaves and Italian Mandarin notes. The fresh scent of Coconut Milk further evokes the essence of the original Bronze Goddess fragrance. Notes of dreamy Tuberose and earthy Cristal Moss deepen the fragrance’s base while the warm note of Amber makes it all come alive. This unforgettable combination works together to create a destination you’ll want to come back to over and over again.

Tom Ford Soleil de Feu

«Soleil de Feu is a smoldering amber woody scent evoking sunset light. It is the most sensual expression of soleil.» – Tom Ford

Tom Ford launches Soleil De Feu as the latest addition to the Private Blend collection . It joins the family of sun-inspired fragrances, that includeSoleil Blanc (2016), Soleil Neige (2019), and Soleil Brûlant (2021).

Soleil de Feu is an amber woody scent that evokes the molten sun descending in a burnished blaze over the sea, painting the sky with fiery strokes of bronze solar light. This is the most sensual expression of the Soleil perfume. Notes of sandalwood are enhanced with tuberose and warm ambers, resulting in a seductive and sensual fragrance. Personally speaking this scent could have been crafted specifically for me. It has all some of my favorite notes with a beautiful oriental touch.

Available as Eu de Parfums 30ml, 50ml, and 250ml Decanter.

McQueen’s Beyond-Amazing New Fragrance


Sometimes I receive a press release that truly makes me happy and excited. Today, I got one of those. Great news! The ALEXANDER MCQUEEN brand launches its first women’s fragrance under the creative direction of Sarah Burton after signing a deal with P&G Prestige.

Do note that there were already two scents on the market, Kingdom, in 2003, and My Queen, in 2005, that were developed by YSL Beauté. Both were disappearing very quickly from the shelves after being discontinued in 2008.

Although Alexander McQueen passed away six years ago, his legacy lives on in his label’s stunning designs by Sarah Burton, who was also in charge for the amazing juice that is the base for those two new scents, McQueen Parfum and McQueen Eau de Parfum.


Inspired by the craftsmanship of haute parfumerie, McQueen has created a unique scent made from the precious essence of three night-blooming flowers: Sambac jasmine, tuberose and ylang ylang. There are also topnotes of clove, pink and black pepper, as well as vetiver. Solid, sensual, with the artisan’s love of form, the parfum bottle is a small work of art. Gold feathers crown the perfume bottle, reflecting bespoke craftsmanship that is pure McQueen.



Top notes: Clove, pink and black pepper
Middle notes: Sambac jasmine, tuberose and ylang ylang
Base note: Vetiver


The association with these nighttime flowers launched the social media hashtag #BloomAtNight, a tag that can easily be tied to more than a few of the pieces in the new F/W 2016 collection.


McQueen Parfum
50ml – CHF 450.00


McQueen Eau de Parfum
30ml – CHF 90.00, 50ml – CHF 119.00, 75ml – CHF 149.00

Available in Switzerland from September 5, 2016.
