CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN BRINGS MAGIC AND PURE DELIGHT WITH THE LAUNCH OF HIS THREE FRAGRANCES: BIKINI QUESTA SERA, TORNADE BLONDE AND TROUBLE IN HEAVEN, ALL IRRESISTIBLE, ALL BY CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN, ALL FOR WOMEN


“ I wanted to celebrate woman and her desires. I wanted these fragrances to enhance an aspect of her personality, or perhaps reveal something about her that no one knew before, maybe not even her, tell a secret, a story. In a way creating these fragrances is like being a film director, some directors want to control the acting process, others want to reveal the power of character and personality. This is what I try to evoke with shoes and now with the alchemy of fragrance. I want to give women the means to express themselves and to delight in their femininity.”

Bikini Questa Sera takes the heat into the night. The heat of the day, sun on hot skin, the voluptuousness of the beach that she doesn’t want to let go. Hold onto the intensity, feel the heat and the happiness, there is the scent of the sun and the scent of the sun becomes the scent of the woman as day turns into night. In the cool of the night air, the headiness of the fragrance shimmers still in the moonlight, jasmine and tuberose, opalescent against the skin. Intimate, hot and compelling, she is wearing only her Bikini Questa Sera.

She went by so fast; she turned me upside down. I didn’t see who she was, but she left all this golden light and luminosity. Was she dancing? I know she was laughing. I can’t get her out of my head. Tornade Blonde, not a colour, but a fragrance and a state of mind. The scent of love and adventure, a gorgeous red rose lies deep in a bed of sweet violet and cassis. Feminine and potent, animalistic yet floral, Tornade Blonde leaves a trail of light like a comet in the night. It is a burst of potent sensuality, an invitation to follow. Tornade Blonde is the scent of desire.

Trouble in Heaven is a fragrance that lights the fire. Mysterious and sexy, for the woman who wants to provoke and is at ease with her provocation. Turn heads, raise the heartbeat, be noticed, make dangerous liaisons. It is both intimate and overt, an intoxicating fragrance to wear close to you, to be loved by others. A second skin of perfect iris, patchouli and tonka absolut, resonates with the dry heat of oriental amber, makes Trouble in Heaven.

Each of these Christian Louboutin fragrances has its own unique personality, what unites them is Christian’s idea behind their construction.

“ I want you to experience the fragrance in the same way as you experience a piano note being played. So there is the ‘ping’, the first burst of the scent like the striking of the piano key, followed by a beautiful resonance as the note echoes its sound. There is one present moment, and then there is the trace, le sillage, I think of it as its memory.”
