New Lancome Idole Perfume

Lancome Idole Perfume

{gifted} Say hello to the Idole, the latest fragrance release from Luxury beauty brand Lancôme. As soon as I took this bottle out of the box I thought ‘WOW!’, it is so unusual, elegant and sleek. The glass bottle is just 15mm thick with gorgeous gold accents and I think it is the slimmest perfume bottle I have ever seen and utterly gorgeous with a very feminine feel. Although slightly precarious as you can’t stand it up on your vanity, it still looks beautiful and the fact the bottle is so sleek means it is pretty & portable The fragrance is also as wonderful as the bottle it comes in (which was a relief).

New Lancome Idole Perfume

Idole by Lancôme 50ml – £75.00

If you like floral scents with a modern sexy twist then you are in for a treat with this latest offering from Lancôme. They have dedicated this perfume Idole to strong women who defy expectations, uphold unity and transcend the limits of the individual to shape the future and influence the next generation of leaders, the essence of modern femininity. I do love it when brands empower and support women and the message at the centre of this perfume is that strong women support each other, encourage each others successes and that their bravery and determination are what defines them.

The perfume itself reflects the beautiful, delicate but interesting bottle and Lancome have layered some of my favourite scents to create a whimsical, elegant perfume with layers of floral, sweet and warm notes. This perfume also includes, a sustainably sourced Isparta Rose Petal Essence from Turkey exclusively made for Lancôme (which is a move by Lancôme to be environmentally friendly).

Top Notes: Bergamot Essence

Heart Notes : Rose Essence, Rose Absolute and Rose Water, Jasmine Infusion and Jasmine Absolute

Base Notes : Patchouli Heart Essence, Cedar Essence and Vanilla Extract

Pretty new rose fragrance Idole from Lancome

Idole Lancome Perfume 2019

What I like about this perfume is that the rose notes give this a modern, fresh, sexy feel not the usual powdery old-fashioned scent that rose usual takes on. I think the floral rose and jasmine notes work so well layered with patchouli and vanilla to give it a warming elegant vibe. I urge you to pop to your nearest Lancôme counter or perfume shop and test it out, It is the perfect fragrance to wear Summer into Autumn, with the mix of floral, fresh, warm and musky notes.

I am also a huge fan of Zendaya Coleman who is the face of Idole, she is gorgeous and very accomplished actress. If you haven’t watched her in the hit HBO series Euphoria, you need to. It is nice to see Lancôme taking their brand to a younger market, it keeps them relevant and modern and I think that is really reflected in this perfume.

If you’re looking for a lovely treat for yourself, a new Summer fragrance to add to your beauty stash then this Idole by Lancôme has to be top of that list, it ticks all the boxes for me.

You will receive a discount too. This is wonderful news in terms of the beauty industry trying to combat the impact of waste and encourage people to reuse their perfectly good bottle!

As I get older celebrity endorsed fragrances seem less and less appealing to me, they’re something I associate with being a teenager, in fact, I’d almost written this one off before even trying it. I thought it was just going to be mediocre and not very me, but I have to say of all the products I have tried this year, makeup included this perfume from Michael Bublé has been the most surprising and has quickly become my go to scent. Who would have thought it!?

From the get go you just can’t fail to notice how beautiful and luxurious the bottle is, if feels very weighty and its HUGE. I love the way the bottle is suspended in the centre of a gold circle and it looks sophisticated and very elegant and that feeling is definitely reflected in the scent too. I like that the bottle isn’t aimed at a teen / younger market but its more classy and the details are subtle but pretty, it looks so nice sat on my dressing table.

New Fragrance from Michael Bublé

This is a very sexy scent and I think that is what most people would expect from Michael Bublé but it has a real sophistication to the mix of notes and I like that it has a sweetness that once settled turns into a more musky scent. It has notes of,

  • Top notes of red fruits and bergamot
  • Middle notes of lily-of-the-valley, jasmine, peony and rose
  • Base notes of sandalwood, musk, vanilla and praline

I think you would be quite pleasantly surprised at how lovey and luxurious this perfume is. The scent is a result of Bublé’s collberation with leading French perfumer Karine Dubreuil-Sereni who is behind some gorgeous scents such as Yves Saint Laurent Vice Versa, Gucci Envy Me and is now in-house perfumer at L’Occitane.

What I like most about this perfume is that it feels quite classic but has a modern edge to it, the combination of notes mean that throughout the day it settles giving you a lovely warm, rich, musky very elegant scent. I love peony and sandalwood in fragrances so actually, its no wonder that I have fallen in love with this scent after all.

I urge you to give this a test and I know you will fall in love with it, even if like me you’ve not been a huge fan of Mr Bublé’s music.
