Under the creative direction of Hedi Slimane, Celine is releasing its first ever fragrance collection. The launch is a highly anticipated homecoming for both the fashion house, whose only scent in a 75-year history was released in 1964, and Slimane, who hasn’t flirted with fragrance since his Dior tenure in the early aughts. To house the 11-scent Haute Parfumerie collection, the designer also created a Paris boutique dedicated specifically to the fragrances, which opens today.
The Haute Parfumerie shop is designed to reflect the heritage of the Celine fashion house. Antique marble, abundant mirroring, and traces of art deco inspiration infuse the brand’s French modernism with retro whimsy. Nine fragrances will be peppered throughout the store among works of art by Luisa Gardini, Rochelle Goldberg, Camilla Reyman, and Soren Sejr. The remaining two scents will be released in 2020.
The perfumes draw deeply from Slimane’s life and conscious, laced with unmistakable notes of the French fashion house’s elegance. Each of the fragrances stem from a memory of Slimane’s, from the aromatic notes to the distinct name and everything in between. The collection boasts eight daytime scents, such as the patchouli-cloaked Eau de Californie, and three evening scents, including the vanilla-musky Nightclubbing. However, playing between all scents at all times of the day is highly encouraged.
The collection is genderless, echoing Slimane’s signature aesthetic in defiance of the gender binary—or lack thereof. Similar to the overcoats and silk blouses on a Celine runway, every scent flirts with both masculine and feminine notes to create a collection open to anyone and everyone.
Pulling from both Slimane’s upbringing and the deep Parisian roots of Celine, the entire collection heralds the French capital’s historically glamorous allure. Slimane called upon warm, musky notes of the French perfumeries of the ‘60s and ‘70s. The rectangular bottle is an homage to Celine couture, with a chic combination of fluted glass, black lacquer, and gold.
Nine of the 11 Celine Haute Parfumerie fragrances are available online now, in the Celine Haute Parfumerie Boutique located at 290 Rue Saint-Honoré Paris, France, and at Celine’s New York Flagship at 650 Madison Ave, New York, NY.END
