Celine Debuts Haute Parfumerie Collection by Hedi Slimane

No contributor

Celine recently introduced its newest olfactory collection, Haute Parfumerie, developed by Creative Director Hedi Slimane. Featuring a selection of 11 masculine-feminine scents, the collection was inspired by Paris and the French spirit, and imagined using the maison’s attention detail.

A powdery note envelopes each perfume with a sophisticated luster—found across a selection of eight daytime varieties and three for night wear. Inspired by Slimane’s exploration of societal notions of gender throughout his career, the collection reimagines his personal stylistic codes. Emblematic scents from 1960s and 1970s perfumery—like tree moss, iris, chypre accord, and rose—form a harmonious singular experience.

The fragrances also take a personal dimension, as each tells a part of Slimane’s personal olfactory journey. One scent at a time, variations like Parade, Cologne Française, Eau de Californie, and Black Tie each act as the reminiscence of a moment, place, or person dear to him.

The collection is presented in a rectangular bottles—created from traditional French glassmaking—and packaged in a box embossed with designs reminiscent of Grand Siècle moldings. Topped with a black lacquered cap that reads “triomphe,” essences of 17th century Classicism and the Modernity of Art Deco are seen in the spare touches of black, which allow the golden-amber liquid to shine through the bottle.
