Gri Gri perfume for tattooed skin

Gri Gri perfume for tattooed skin

I’m sooo not the tattoo type; I’ve never got the attraction and I’m scared of needles. But there’s something intriguing about this new fragrance brand, created ‘for tattooed skin’.

Gri Gri was launched by perfumer Anais Biguine and takes its creative lead from tattoo history and culture. It’s quite clever because god knows tattoos are a mainstream trend now, yet of course they have a historical significance too. The branding is clean and elegant and very French (it’s a Parisian brand), while the scents sound spiritual and exotic.

So far there are three ‘masculine’ scents. Tara Mantra is a blend of saffron, cardamom and jasmine that’s described as woody and animallic (yes please). Moko Maori sounds more fresh and green with fern and grass notes, while Ukiyo-E sounds suitably Japanese with its combo of green tea, yuzu and cherry blossom.

I discovered the brand on my friend Amanda’s perfume site We Wear Perfume, which is all about fragrance and storytelling (you can find out all sorts of things, such as why Gri Gri’s Anais Biguine wears perfume on her heels). If you’re interested in fragrance and are a little bit nosy (ahem), do check it out. And for info on Gri Gri, head to the brand’s Facebook page.

What’s the deal with Gosha?

Gosha Rubchinskiy Fila collaboration

Oooh so much bemusement from the not-young fashion contingent re Gosha Rubchinskiy! I get it. I struggle sometimes too, but you just have to supplant your own knowledge and references for the mindset of young people for a change. (more…)

Ports 1961 Resort 2017

While Alessandro Michele has been successfully shaking up Gucci, someone else has been quietly reinventing another heritage Italian brand. Over at Ports 1961, womenswear creative director Nataša Čagalj is properly getting into her striding, adding a cool wonkiness to otherwise staple separates. (more…)

Quote of the day: Bob Colacello

The business of being an influencer

“If everybody’s promoting themselves and everybody has two million hits or followers… it’s like if everybody’s famous then nobody’s famous. All of these selfies, where are they going to go? Where are they all going to end up?”
Bob Colacello in WWD’s article on the Business of Being an It Girl
