Imperial purple

Purple, with its veil of mystery, hint of solemnity and stunning elegance, is a colour that tells wonderful tales – sometimes on the dark side.


Tom Ford Beauty
Sensual purple.
Heady. Sultry. Palpably sensual. Tom Ford’s signature perfume Black Orchid is even more desirable in its new
purple outfit.. Inside its matt purple bottle, Velvet Orchid Lumière has a bewitching heart of rich floral notes: jasmine absolute, Turkish rose oil and Cattleya Leopoldii orchid.

Serge Lutens
Deep purple.
The woman of Serge Lutens’ dreams hovers between fine materials and literary outpourings. Purple rules
all in the new De Profundis collection, which plays with words and our imagination. “Beauty to die for” says the aesthete. The lipstick called Grand Deuil is “for the joyful widow”, the nail varnish for the “Big Night”.

Annick Goutal
Elegant purple.
Tenue de Soirée body cream flaunts the codes of the moreish chypre launched last autumn. The cream, rich in oils of coconut, shea nut and camelia, luxuriates in the addictive sillage of the perfume and dons the deep purple familiar from the perfume bottle with its oversized pompom (reproduced on the jar top). As elegant as an evening gown. Whence the name.
