Christina Aguilera’s Dresser

Screenshot_2018-01-06-10-14-36.jpgChristina Aguilera recently posted a short video collage on Instagram to commemorate the late Stinky, one of her beloved dogs. In one picture, some perfumes can be seen. We know that the singer loves floral, fruity and gourmand fragrances, and the perfumes here reinforce that. o.4773.jpgThe faceted bottle with the pink label is the first version of La Chasse aux Papillons by L’Artisan Parfumeur, a white floral perfume created by Anne Flipo and launched in 1999. o-4616.jpgThe bottle with the beige cord around the neck is Artemisia by Penhaligon’s, a lovely powdery perfume launched in 2002. I’ve been wearing Artemisia for years and I can totally see why Christina uses it: it’s a romantic perfume with a very peculiar warm milky note, very reassuring and comforting.

What’s in Xtina’s Bags

xtina_fragranceelizabetharden_untold_bornunicornLast March an interesting What’s In My Bag? video was posted on the YouTube channel of The Voice. The protagonist? The one and only Christina Aguilera, who opened her several bags and showed their content. The perfume she took out of her scent bag was Elizabeth Arden Untold, a fruity floral perfume created by Clement Gavarry and launched in 2013. I’m not surprised by her choice because we already knew she loves sweet/floral scents.

xtina_glosskevynaucoin_elegantlipgloss_vizcaya_bornunicornShe took two products out of her go-to make-up bag. The first was Kevyn Aucoin Elegant lip gloss in Vizcaya, a peachy shade now discontinued.

The second was SeneGence LipSense, a long-lasting lip colour in a beautiful red shade.

 

Thanks to Kate for first telling me about the video and to Fragrantica users for identifying the perfume.

Christina Aguilera and Matthew Rutler’s Bathroom

wpid-wp-1439383691830.jpgChristina Aguilera has never loved social networks: she rarely interacts on Twitter and hardly ever posts personal pictures on Instagram. Yesterday things drastically changed, though; she literally took over her Instagram account by posting pictures of her favourite things, many of them are fashion-related. She made my day with the picture above, shot in her bathroom. It looks like a very quiet place, with crystals, a statue of Lakshmi (the Hindu goddess of wealth), marble and mirrors. The stone tray – Matthew Rutler’s – on the left caught my attention, with many interesting men’s perfumes on it.

montblanclegend_bornunicornThe black and silver metal bottle is Mont Blanc Legend, a fresh fougère fragrance created by Olivier Pescheux and launched in 2011.
valentinouomo_bornunicornThe studded bottle is Valentino Uomo, a gourmand scent created by Olivier Polge and launched in 2014. It contains notes of hazelnut, chocolate, leather, roasted coffee beans, cedar, myrtle and bergamot.

There’s also Yves Saint Laurent La Nuit de l’Homme, an aromatic fragrance with notes of cardamom, lavender, bergamot, caraway, cedar and vetiver, created by Anne Flipo, Pierre Wargnye and Dominique Ropion in 2009.

Bonbon is a gourmand perfume, with caramel as its key note; it was created by  Cecile Matton and Serge Majoullier in 2014. Last but not least, Flower in the Air, created by Alberto Morillas in 2013, is a rose scent with notes of raspberry, magnolia, gardenia, pink pepper and white musk.

Thanks to my Twitter friends Roberto, Jon and Katie who did most of the ids for me.
