The Haute Parfumerie collection
Created by Hedi Slimane, the celine perfume collection draws its know-how from french high perfumery, in keeping with the tradition of the “couturier parfumeur”.
The celine haute parfumerie collection is comprised of 9 perfumes to date. Their names, chosen by Hedi Slimane, stem from the couturier's olfactory journal.
FOR DAY AND FOR EVENING
LA PEAU NUE
EAU DE CALIFORNIE
NATURALLY, EACH PERFUME MAY BE WORN EQUALLY FOR DAY OR FOR EVENING.
The essence of Paris, the French spirit
The Parisian spirit, pronounced classicism and dissonant sophistication are at the core of this olfactory project that raises the question of French taste and its meaning within our era.
The Celine haute parfumerie collection restates and revisits a tradition, a style and cultural roots but in a reverse sense. From an olfactory perspective, it transposes an allure, a tone and the notion of timeless wear so dearly valued by the couturier.
The journal of a couturier
The starting point and the root of the collection's creation is Hedi Slimane's olfactory journal, where each perfume relies on the memory of emotions, on the remembrance of something specific or the narrative of the couturier.
Hence, there is a personal and sentimental character at the heart of the project and Hedi Slimane's relationship with his perfumers. De facto, it takes on a personal and universal dimension where the reassurance, the memory and the emotion of a perfume resonate within everyone.
The powdery olfactory signature
All the perfumes are linked together by one singular olfactory imprint. A powdery note dominates the collection, shading the singular features of each composition.
Like a diaphanous veil placed over the skin, this powdery filter provides each perfume with an enveloping patina and the french elegance of a couture trail.
The celine haute parfumerie collection recaptures Hedi Slimane's masculine-feminine stylistic codes.
The faceted accords and compositions in the collection deliberately make no distinction or separation between traditional masculine and feminine notes. They harmonize or blend together in a continuous questioning of identities.
