On a Roll

Dior J’adore Huile Divine and Roller-Pearl are available at Hudson’s Bay and online at dior.com.

Dior’s golden fragrance, J’adore, can now be enjoyed in two new exciting formats. The eau de parfum has been made portable by way of a roller-pearl housed in a mini amphora, perfect for on-the-go application throughout the day. The iconic floral scent, ripe with jasmine and ylang-ylang, is now also available in a dry oil, which envelops skin in a soft satin finish and enhances its radiance. Together, the duo offers an elevated experience sure to enliven your existing perfume ritual.

Message in a Bottle

Louis Vuitton Les Colognes is available at select Louis Vuitton stores.

Foraying further into the world of scents, Louis Vuitton is launching
its first-ever unisex fragrance collection. Les Colognes comprises three scents crafted by the brand’s master perfumer, Jacques Cavallier Belletrud, who sought to evoke the ease and natural beauty of California. It’s easy to get lost in the escapist quality of this trio with titles like “Sun Song,” “Cactus Garden,” and “Afternoon Swim,” and their simplistic emphases on orange blossom, maté, and orange zest. This vacation mindset can also be observed in the collection’s brightly coloured bottles and the boxes they’re housed in, embellished with artwork by Los Angeles–based artist Alex Israel. Israel’s work also adorns a special Louis Vuitton fragrance travel case made to transport the eaux de parfum in style.

O Face

The Orgasm Collection features an oversized compact of the iconic warm pink blush, which gives the illusion of a natural flush, as well as three new offerings: a liquid highlighter, oil-infused lip tint, and a multi-use palette. Together, the risqué lineup gives wearers an enviable peachy glow while highlighting and complementing their individual skin tone.
