Continuing along the path that we have undertaken with the creation of our previous fragrance Princess Blanche, we have decided to take you once again on a journey amongst treasured fragrances created specially for you.
Argentum47 is a very refined and elegant fragrance: designed for a very demanding audience and one that seeks out only the most unique of fragrances, this essence has a strong character that is, nonetheless, able to maintain an excellent balance between the “subtlety of the fragrance and the intense olfactory notes that characterize it”.
In the top notes of the perfume, we perceive “wild hawthorn” which lends extreme elegance to the scent. A touch of heliotrope and sparkling resins enrich the heart of the fragrance, rendering it complex and in perpetual motion.
The originality of the fragrance is also due to an innovative combination of raw materials (such as peony-magnolia-champagne grape) found in the heart of the olfactory pyramid, and reminiscent of the sensation one experiences when sipping an excellent Champagne…becoming, therefore, pungent with an after taste that is both bitter and sweet…And like a flute of champagne, Argentum47 is pleasurable to wear and tasty and indulgent to drink, “sip by sip”.
The intense floral bouquet of which it is composed is then warmed by the yellow flower of the helichrysum… the whole lot is splendidly captured in the end, by amber and powdery notes that render it soft and warm.
Designed for all those women who wish to wear a fragrance of great class and that is reserved only for the very few… Argentum47.
Aurum79 is a particularly rich fragrance that retraces the diverse evolutions of rare musks: vegetable and animal…fresh and sweet…the whole created in a futuristic and innovative way.
The harmonizing combination of both fledgling and traditional musks permits this fragrance to take on a truly unique complexity. All this evokes intoxicating and far-away voyages amongst spices and fresh and pungent ozone notes, like the fresh morning air, and “…a soft nocturnal embrace before a starry landscape seen from the desert…”…All this is Aurum79. The fragrance is sweet, fresh and very intense- belonging to the olfactory group of oriental musks, the scent takes on multifaceted and complex connotations from the moment it is sprayed, and throughout its evolution throughout the hours to come.
The musky trails that make up the scent, be it in the top notes, heart or base notes, make it extremely fascinating and particularly sensual for she who wears it.
The fragrance is warmed and refined by an alluring vanilla, that lends reassurance and softness. Created for all those women dreamers who love to travel…“the dream of a journey”… Accompanied by a memory… Aurum79.

Memorial Day, the holiday Americans eagerly await as the start of summer isn’t only best celebrated somewhere relaxing but also somewhere that is stately and iconic, with a classic, throwback American sensibility. Here on Vogue the best big resorts, the Breakers, the Greenbrier, among others, from coast to coast are decades old and still retain their original features.
London, Paris, Berlin, New York, Tokyo; and its New York that we speak of this time around, a trip made this past February in the name of research. Our staff goes regularly to The “Big Apple” bringing back various ideas, tips, and the newest trends. SoHo, Greenwich Village, the Meatpacking District, Chelsea, 5th Avenue… every quarter has its own personality. Let’s check it out!
One of the cooler quarters of NY, home to many celebs, and where the “industrial loft” was born; here many brands have a flagship store, clothing, luxury consignment and thrift shops, but it’s also home to interior design and art galleries. One of our favorite quarters to explore and research.
The quarter that breathed life into “radical chic” Notting Hill; tiny streets covered in green, small shops to check out – barber shops, bio food… One must stroll about with a to-go cup of coffee in one hand and a fantastic cupcake from Magnolia Bakery in the other, a bakery made famous after being seen on “Sex and the City”. (The name of a shop doesn’t need quotes!)
The Meatpacking District
Where once there were butchers now are a multitude of small and interesting contemporary boutiques; home of The Standard Hotel, which boasts one of the most famous rooftop bars in the world. Even after an intense day of research in the shops, you can’t miss out a walk on the Highline, and old metro line turned beautiful pathway that connects the Meatpacking District to Downtown.
Another district well worth the visit, where in between the red brick walls, across the street from the Google offices, we can find a gorgeous example of reclaimed architecture called the Chelsea Market: a covered market, built inside of an old factory, where you can find clothing, various items, artisan food, or enjoy a meal at one of the magnificent restaurants.
The street of lights!!! Possibly one of, if not the, most famous streets in the world. Here you can find everything, from huge flagship stores from major brands to jewelry stores, gift stores, multi-level sporting good stores, restaurants, and more. Definitely a commercial avenue, but always worth stopping by.
And you, have you ever been to New York?
