[Sharing] Dolce&Gabbana Light Blue Collection


The Mediterranean love story of the celebrated Dolce&Gabbana Light Blue perfumes returns with a fascinating new chapter. Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana worked closely with Mario Testino to create the sequel of the Light Blue story. Bianca Balti’s character portrays the Italian femme fatale. She represents the Dolce&Gabbana woman: a self-assured beauty who her lover cannot resist.

When the Designers built on the Light Blue story last year with limited edition scents Living Stromboli and Dreaming in Portofino, they sought inspiration in other enchanting seaside Mediterranean ports close to their hearts. Portofino and Stromboli, where the Designers have homes, are magnificent places that also represent the wild beauty of the Mediterranean with their views, the scent of the air, and the blue shade of the sea.

The First Fragrance by Repetto


Recently, I was invited to the launch event of Repetto’s first-ever fragrance that was held at VivoCity.

A group of ballet dancers waiting to be performed.

I’m not familiar with ballet and it was fun getting a glimpse into a world of ballet during the event. Elegance is the first thing that comes into my mind when I see ballet. The graceful dancing, the lovely ballet tu tu, the ballerina shoes (that are tied with satin ribbon around the ankle) and the ballerina bun.

repetto fragrance

Repetto, the icon of French heritage for ballerina shoes, has now created a fragrance of their very own, an elegant aura, like a ballerina performing an arabesque driven by a subtle signature providing self-confidence and lifting the body into the air like a Carlotta ballerina.

Repetto was founded by Rose Repetto in 1947 when she decided to design a pair of shoes for her son, the dancer and choreographer Roland Petit. Using the famous ‘stitch and return’ process, the hand-sewn shoes were soon loved by all the dancers at the opera house. The brand now represents French style around the world and remains loyal to its ballet heritage with beautiful stores.

Miss Dorothée Gilbert, Principal Dancer of the Opéra National de Paris, has been the Repetto ambassador since January 2012. This key visual was photographed by James Bort in the privacy of her dressing room, the Danseuse Etoile prepares to go on stage.

The First Fragrance by Repetto

Repetto Fragrance has a musky powdered rose scent that opens with the pear and cherry blossom accords. Middle note of rose fusing with orange blossom. Base note of vanilla pod and the warmth of the amber wood.
