CARINE, AN INTIMATE AND ADDICTIVE SCENT
It's a portrait-perfume, a sensual and disconcerting olfactory reflection, a new interpretation of a woody floral with notes of black Patchouli.
AN AMBIGUOUSAND IRREVERENT FRAGRANCE
« It is my most intimate journey, laying myself bare. Opening the door to my emotions, my memories, my thoughts, my dreams, and my fantasies. », says Carine Roitfeld.
Emblematic of her abiding quest to arouse sensuality and stir curiosity, 'Carine's notes of Patchouli, Jasmine, and Gardenia emphasize emboldened, instinctive and ambiguous feminity.
CARINE'S REBELLIOUS VISION
Shot by photographer Max von Gumppenberg, a close and long time collaborator of Roitfeld, the campaign for Carine's perfume embodies the rebellious essence of the fragrance. "I've never seen myself like this. And it's precisely what I love about it." says Carine Roitfeld. An umpteenth reinvention, free and empowered, defying rules and expectations.
A NEW SUMMERY DESIGN
"Khaki is my favorite color, along with black. It's my other black. it's a more open, mor eluminous, less formal." tells Carine Roitfeld. The soft and powdery accents of the pebble-shaped bottle are full of character for a box designed like a book that opens adventurous chapters.
A FRAGRANCE BY DOMINIQUE ROPION
To reveal the woman behind her original fragrance debut collection 7 Lovers, Roitfeld worked closely with master perfumer Dominique Ropion, the nose behind some of the world's most iconic scents. "When I think about perfumes, I conjure up feminity, not a woman, or a book, or a painting in particular, and I make perfumes because I love talking about Love, Sexuality and Freedom." says Dominique Ropion.
THE MAGNETIC SCOPE OF " CARINE'S" INGREDIENTS

And finally, a sensual, feminine, white flral bouquet composed of the warm, mysterious, and voluptuous notes of Jasmine and Gardenia.
