Without a doubt the transition period between winter and summer is definitely one of my favorite - the air would change and you would start to see flowers here and there. There’s something so magical about it that makes it far more spectacular than the other three and it’s also a great opportunity to not only update wardrobe but also your fragrance collection.
Last week i was lucky enough to be invited to Paris in order to celebrate the launch of the new James Bond Fragrance 007forWomen II. We were welcomed at the Hotel Mandarin Oriental which is in the most fashionable part of town right on the Rue St. Honore and next to the flagship Chloé store.
Right at the beginning we were seperated in two groups and started our day with a presentation of the new perfume which was hosted by Will Andrews who works as a principal fragrance scientist at P&G and talked us through the world of perfume. He shared his passion that goes into creating new scents and finding new methods of capturing smells – you could truly tell that he follows the concept of ‚doing what you love’.
To enjoy the 007-event to the fullest we also got the chance to meet the make-up arrtist Naomi Donni who’s known for her work on Chocolat, Cinderella but also on 007 James Bond. While she was showing us how to achieve one of her Bond Girl-look she created in the past she also told us a few funny and interesting stories of the movie world.
To top it all off we also met italian actress Caterina Murino who gained international fame after playing Solange Dimitrios in the 2006 adaptation of the James Bond novel Casino Royale and is now the face of the 007 Fragrance for Women which reflect the contradictory characteristics of the women in the Bond universe. The flacon was cerated with numerous facets providing a kaleidoscope effect to accentuate the numerous faces of a women. In comparision to the first edition which embodies a mysterious Bond lady the 007forWomen II offers a charming daily variation in response to the evening debut. It’s lighter and opens with a combination of pink pepper, pink freesia, rasberry and pink champagne – obviously perfect for spring and the perfect option for the day. So thank you P&G for having me and for this lovely event!
