Helena Christensen & Elizabeth Gaynes Launch Their Niche Fragrance Line – strangelove nyc – at VIP Luncheon in Bergdorf Goodman
Helena Christensen, Creative Director of the niche fragrance brand strangelove nyc, along with Founder Elizabeth Gaynes, celebrated the brand’s official debut in Bergdorf Goodman this week.
Brooke Shields, Camilla Staerk and Danielle Snyder (of Dannijo) joined a celebratory luncheon at the BG Restaurant inside Bergdorf Goodman.
“It’s hard to find a perfume that you would want to put on every single day, spray it in your hair, spray it all over your body, and that’s how I felt when I got to smell the first samples,” Creative Director Helena Christensen said. “When you first try deadofnight, your senses are stimulated in the most magical way; you are simply transfixed by its power. With meltmyheart, you first fall in love with the scent itself; it is so tender and poetic, so full of yearning romance. It makes your heart flutter. It’s about surrendering to love and experiencing it fully.”
Sourced from exotic locales like Borneo, Madagascar, Mauritius and India, strangelove nyc uses some of the rarest natural oils and selected ingredients in the world, creating completely original scents that are long-lasting, extremely sensual and unquestionably unique. The company launched its two oudh-based scents, deadofnight and meltmyheart, this fall. Prized for centuries for its deeply complex scent and aphrodisiac affects, oudh is a rare, aromatic resin from the ancient East.
Hey Boyfriend: Try @ThirdManEau
The THIRDMAN Contemporary Eau de Cologne fragrance line translates the long standing tradition of scented waters, or Eaux de Cologne, for today: modern formulae with the highest grade of natural essences stored in large bottles and meant to be splashed on liberally, reintroducing a long lost gesture in Fine Fragrance. Both for man and woman, the scents by THIRDMAN, are uncommon and indispensable.
THIRDMAN’s identity is less important than the scents and the new olfactory sensations he spearheads. He is the ghostwriter of a new generation of scents. In an environment crowded with names and brand, THIRDMAN wants to put back the focus on the quality and inventiveness inside the bottle. He creates scents that will become part of the personal journey of the individuals who wear them.
The house of THIRDMAN is founded on a clear principle: to reintroduce the original purpose of a scent. THIRDMAN is inspired by the long standing European tradition and craft of the eau de cologne reimagined for today. Beginning in the 18th century, scented waters made with botanical extracts were used primarily for their beneficial tonic-like qualities. These later evolved into the classic ‘eaux’ which were stored in large bottles and meant to be splashed on liberally.
Refreshing and invigorating, their generous application was as gratifying as their scent. They became an essential part of a daily regimen. THIRDMAN translates their bygone splendor into modern high-end perfumery by designing the indispensable eau de cologne for today.
