gift guide: charriol fragrances


Renowned for its luxurious lines of watches and jewelry, Charriol once again expands its selection with a new line of fragrances.

As Philippe Charriol defines it “the art of perfume is an art of living differently”, Charriol continues to showcase collections of unique prominence. This season sees the grand launch of Charriol’s two latest scents for men and women – Tourmaline Eau de Toilette and Charriol Homme Sport.

PHILIPPE CHARRIOL WITH ANTON HUANG AT THE LAUNCH (check out his cool red trainers):
Inspired by novelty in elegance, Charriol gifts women with the Tourmaline Eau de Toilette (100ml, P4,750). Tourmaline, a mysterious gemstone for some, is a multi-faceted stone available in an infinite array of vibrant hues and a bearer of a myriad of emotions. No other stone than Tourmaline – unique, refined, and radiant – could have more deeply inspired Philippe Charriol for his new women’s eau de toilette. An Eau de Jour full of contrasts, it is designed for radiant, relaxed and fashionable women who convey modern-day elegance with admirable know-how, naturally combining a pair of slim-fit jeans with a dressy sheer blouse and a men’s jacket.
Transparency, light and sensuality are the three precious and elegant facets of this beautiful eau de jour. Its floral fragrance is a mix of top notes from the sweet and fruity flower Davana that softens the sparkly tanginess of the green notes combined with Cyclamen and Ivy Leaf for freshness. Gardenia, Frangipani Blossom and Water Hyacinth provide a unique burst of light for the middle notes while the Woody elements such as Rosewood, Musk and Patchouli give Tourmaline its distinctiveness by making its floral structure gradually evolve toward greater sensuality and refinement.

Designed for the sophisticated gentleman, Charriol Homme Sport (100ml, P4,450) represents a man who has a distinct taste for luxury and fine objects and who enjoys casual sophistication. This eau de toilette is made for the athletic men who love new challenges and the thrill derived from strong sensations. They long to experience the excitement of life and intense sports. Its colors of Marine and Azure sings the praises of blue in strong and masculine notes.
The top notes of Charriol Homme Sport offer a brisk freshness combined with the spicy, fruity, aromatic fragrances with Coriander, Guatemalan Cardamom and Mandarin. Middle notes on the other hand reinforce the intense and unique masculinity with Herbaceous Sage combined with Hot Pepper and Yerba Mate – a high-quality tea that brings a luxurious note to the fragrance uncommon in the world of perfumes. Noble and refined woods make up the base notes with the masculine aroma of Vetiver and Cedar with a touch of incense evoking an athletic spirit.

Charriol’s latest scents Tourmaline Eau de Toilette for women and Charriol Homme Sport for men both carry the label’s signature definition of elegance and sophistication. Their unique mixture of notes not only defines a personality but also the style that is uniquely Charriol.

Charriol fragrances available at Charriol in Rustan's, Power Plant Mall, Greenbelt 4.
