Our theme at Lore this month is Viva Las Fragrance, inspired by Sin City in its golden age. Accordingly, we’ve put together a list of products we think some of those colourful Las Vegas characters might have used.
Time to buckle up and get ready for that crazy nightlife, those neon lights and the city that will set your soul on fire!
Electric Wood – the scent of a new guitar – wood, lacquer and metal. With a fusion of traditional citrusy notes (reminiscent of what Elvis would’ve worn back in the day) plus some modern ones (which symbolise the revolutionary impact he had on music), this scent will pack a punch even after you’ve left the building.
Feathers, sparkles, glittering smiles and mesmerising performances that attracted audiences from far and wide… those were the Las Vegas showgirls. Elixir de Bombe’s sweet juiciness with its zing of spice and rich floral character transports us right to one of those Vegas residency stages… Encore!
Think the Rat Pack – clean cut and shaven, with soft, low voices singing sentimental songs with undeniable charisma. After their performance, with cigar smoke in the air and glasses of whiskey in hand, we imagine the green rooms they hung out in smelt like Nuit de Megève – aromatic, yet smokey and earthy with that old-school touch.
Luck be a lady tonight… she’s 60s glitz and glam, covered from head to toe in jewels and fur, her hair coiffed just so. She blows on the dice before you roll, clutching her martini glass, her intoxicating scent filling the air of the casino. She’s wearing The Beautiful Ones; the tuberose, fruit and spice notes mingling with each other thrillingly as you wait with bated breath to see if your bet paid off…
The owner of the joint, tight with the talent and entertainers (as long as they get bodies in seats!) the Mobster is the most powerful person in the room. Naturally he wears Aventus Cologne by Creed – strong, bold, but not overbearing, just enough for people to know he’s there, and he’s important.
The newlyweds are on their way back to the hotel – there’s a romantic suite and champagne waiting for them. To really top off the night, they should tip a capful of the Library of Flowers True Vanilla bubble bath into the spa to create a memory that’ll last a lifetime… or maybe just one night.
