Some women sleep in nothing but their signature fragrance, while others prefer to wear only their jewels to bed. This season, Tiffany & Co. offers both audiences something suitable with a new namesake perfume.
"This fragrance is for all the women who love jewellery," says Daniela Andrier, the Givaudan master perfumer who created the eau de parfum. When setting out to capture the iconic Fifth Avenue brand in scent, Andrier took a personal approach. "I chose the parts that I am the most touched by – the romance, the joy, the promise and also the elegance of Tiffany."
The result is a sparkling floral musk that offers a contemporary take on the classic ingredients of haute parfumerie, mirroring the design ethos at Tiffany.
"It's a very beautiful way to mix romance and modernity, because it allows us to create something with a lot of tradition that smells really different than ever before," says Andrier.
Opening with vert de mandarine, the fragrance transitions to a heart of iris, a French flower found in some of the earliest sketches at Tiffany. Finally, a base of patchouli wrapped in a blend of musks dries down to a sensual finish. "It's very chic, clean and sophisticated," Andrier says.
This uptown sensibility is matched by the glass bottle, which takes its cues from the house's signature diamond cuts. The faceting at the base is reminiscent of the world-famous 128.54-karat Tiffany Diamond, while the lines at the shoulders nod to the Lucida-cut engagement ring. Of course, like any purchase made at the jewellery house, the fragrance comes packaged in a signature Tiffany-blue box.
Tiffany & Co., from $120 for 50 mL at Tiffany & Co., Holt Renfrew, Hudson's Bay and Saks Fifth Avenue. For more information, visit www.tiffany.ca.
