Believe it or not, ALEXANDER McQUEEN was one of the few luxury fashion brands without a signature fragrance until now. Sarah Burton changed that with McQUEEN PARFUM ($395) and McQUEEN EAU DE PARFUM ($115 to $165), launched exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue. “I wanted these fragrances to come from night flowers, the kind that exude an eternal freshness once the day is gone”, says Burton.
Inside the beautiful and mysterious bottles, the formula has three star ingredients from the golden age of perfumery: sambac jasmine, tuberose and ylan ylang. Combined with pink pepper and vetiver derived from using CO2 extraction, the result is an opulent, commanding, sensual and romantic potion that defines the modern woman who wears is. Its richness makes it ideal for the coming season.
A wreath of gold feathers crowns the heavy black flacon of the parfum, whereas the eau de parfum is the opposite with a clear glass bottle and a light pink solution. Simply exquisite. Available at Saks Fifth Avenue beginning Fall 2016.
