Alessandro Michele’s Perfume Collection (2019)

Gucci’s creative director Alessandro Michele published this picture in his Instagram Stories some days ago. It’s unclear whether all these perfumes belong to him or to somebody else, but nonetheless let’s bask in the beauty of this nocturnal shot.Starting from the left, I’ve spotted Xaris, a frankincense resinous fragrance by the Florentine brand Aquaflor.

Then there’s a French classic: Snob by Le Galion, originally created by Paul Vacher and launched in the 1950s. This is the new version by Thomas Fontaine, launched in 2014.

Next there’s a Baccarat splash bottle containing a Caron perfume. This bottle has been used since the 1930s for many different fragrances. Without a front label it’s impossible to say what perfume is sitting on Alessandro Michele’s table.

Last, there’s Rodin Olio Lusso for Women, a white floral fragrance created in 2012 by David Seth Moltz and Kavi Moltz.

Several bottles of Caron perfumes can be seen in the beauty department. Two types of bottles are displayed: one is made all of glass, with tall rectangular stopper; the other is made of dotted glass with gold fluted stopper. Unfortunately, it’s impossible to tell what scents they contain. On the contrary, we know the black bottle in the box is Nuit de Noël, a floral fragrance created by Ernest Daltroff and launched in 1922.
