Review: LANVIN ME, The New Fragrance By Lanvin

Friday, June 14, 2013

Stop, enough, let me vibrate, catch fire, love, captivate, become the woman I really am

This summer, Lanvin launched the latest fragrance for women which is the new LANVIN Me. It's credo "Be myself, become ME”, and it embodies elegance, style and Parisian chic. This fragrance is specially dedicated to women, individuals, who are not pretentious, but unique and confident in their own way. 

Every LANVIN ME is a special gift as the golden thread which wraps the outer carton resembles ribbons that decorate gifts. The flacon is so beautiful, with Lanvin's logo engraved on the black stopper and a gold-colour chain with crystal pendant is on the neck of the bottle. Everything is so simple and nicely done, I really love the whole packaging.

Leonardo de Vinci said, "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication" 
Is this who I am? Whimsical and bold, yet fragile? 
Designer Alber Elbaz collaborated with perfumer Domitille Bertier to create this new, unique fragrance without false modesty, to accentuate strong will, intimacy and sensuality. The restrained and massive black cap contrasting with the lusciously thick bottle, made feminine, made fashion with the sparkle of a precious shining gemstone. The bottle works it's intoxicating magic on me and I'm irresistibly hooked.

What's in ME?
Top notes of Lanvin Me is delicate floral notes supported and sweetened by fruity zest of blueberry combined with liquorice in the heart. The seductive hues are offered by intense tuberose complementing sweet-fruity passions rounded the base.

The fragrance picks up it's delicious floral references with vivacity and spirit. To me, it has quite a strong sweet and fruity scent. It's not like many of those fruity-florals around, because it is very strong and draws on the blueberry. The liquorice in this fragrance is not overpowering, supports the berries nicely, the dry down is woody.

Alber Elbaz says “LANVIN ME is more than a fragrance. It’s composition tells a story that expresses each separate shade. It resembles a partitive of feelings and emotions of a moment, like a fascinating melody of senses”

So what's my story? 
I would love to travel around the world to discover and experience new things in life. I want to view the world in another perception and go beyond my imagination.
I love nature and being outdoors. The outdoors represent freedom to me, being away from a schedule and connection to the world is sublime. There’s always something to learn outdoors. 
I love fashion. As you know, action speaks louder than words. A person's dressing does exhibits the character, attitude and the feelings of someone.
But in the end, who am I? A sensual, independent, carnal, desirable, wild and assertive woman. Determined and loving with a touch of self-centeredness.
