Giorgio Armani Privé SS 2012

”Metamorphosis”:that’s how the theme for the new Summer/Spring 2012 Giorgio Armani Privé Make Up Collection is called and it’s all about sensuality!

Linda Cantello, International MUA  for Giorgio Armani, shares with us her secrets and her techniques.

To prepare the skin, Linda Cantello uses Regenessence High Lift Cream. Then she applies Fluid Master Primer, a subtle base for even complexion. To finish with skin she is using Maestro, the first invisible foundation which promises to do miracles. Unfortunately, Maestro will be available in October, so we will have to wait…

For the eyes she uses a mix of the pastel green eyeshadow from the palette #1 and the Gloss d’Armani #100. To finish the look she applies lots of Eyes To Kill Lash Stretching mascara layers.

As for the lips, Linda goes for a natural and fresh look. She creates her own nude shade blending different colors like Gloss d’Armani No105 and 508. Don’t forget to give your lips a touch of light using the golden hue from palette #1.

LE PARADIS by Cacharel

Fragrances with a unique story, mythical elixirs full of sensuality and femininity, all closed into beautiful bottles. That’s the world of Le Paradis Cacharel, a limited edition of temptation fragrances…

For this unique collection, illustrator Charlotte Gastaut designed a fresh and colorful paradise, revisiting the floral pattern which has been the symbol of the famous brand for decades. Colorful flowers and exotic birds decorate the packages.

Are you ready to discover Le Paradis?

Created in 1978 by Roger Péllegrino, Paul Léger, Raymond Chaillan and Robert Gonnon, Anaïs Anaïs was the first luxury fragrance created for young women. It is an original paradise, tender and unsettling, that guides young women in establishing their femininity. Thanks to its tones of lily, jasmine, orange blossom, it is romantic and innocent, but still sensual and powerful. Without upsetting the vivacity of the floral notes or disturbing their vibration, the sweet honey- scented base wreathes them in intimate sensuality.

Created in 1998 by Olivier Cresp, Noa is a paradise of tender and luminous musky floral scents. It features different tones that make it so unique: a base of white musk in combination with pink pepper, peony, essence of Bulgarian Rose and sandalwood. 
Harmony and serenity, radiant and subtle sensuality, delicate and airy femininity. In other words, everything that a woman wants in her aura. 
Created in 2003 by Laurent Bruyere and Dominique Ropion.
The paradise of Amor Amor could be described as the paradise of Love at first sight: explosive, gourmand, addictive. When you’ll smell Amor Amor, you will instantly feel the natural orange and mandarin essences, joined by a berry accord. Then, a floral bouquet of jasmine, rose, lily of the valley and Melati flower will gentle tickle your nose.
Love isn’t just about romantic and sweet mood. It’s also about sensuality. That’s why the warm notes of sandalwood and cedar in combination with a hint of vanilla and caramel don’t miss from the formula.
Just like a secret love elixir, Amor Amor shoots its intoxicating arrows into the heart of an entire generation of lovers.

Created in 2009 by Honorine Blanc, Olivier Cresp and Alberto Morillas at Firmenich.
The Paradise of Scarlett plays between two worlds, floral softness and gourmand notes. On one side is the bouquet of immaculate petals than unfurls, unveiling orange blossom,  with the gentle sensuality of jasmine and the virginal sillage of honeysuckle. On the other side, wisdom makes way for gourmand passion, full of surprises and seduction. Warm creamy and unctuous sandalwood are combined with the gourmand notes of pear and amber-scented Provence honey, confident in character.

These four fragrances have everything we could possibly ask from our fragrance. They promise to travel us in our personal Paradise, not only with their unique scents, but also with their pretty designs of the packaging.

Have you tried these fragrances? Which one is your favorite?
Let me know, angels!
