Sexy, smoky, golden, warming… all those gorgeously good words.
Vladimir by Carine Roitfeld is a hugely addictive EDP. A citrus opening of bergamot and grapefruit gives way to smoky incense and bright amber.
When I’m wearing this, I don’t want anything else against my skin. It’s so seductive!

What They Say
“Your hand guiding me in a firm but gentle hold, we slipped into the wings of the Mariinsky theatre. While the dancers warmed up to the sound of Tchaikovsky, you lent towards me and tenderly kissed my cheek, enveloping me in a sweet, lingering odor of amber.”
A story of contrasts finding its inspiration in Carine’s Slavic roots. The story of a family, of love and transmission. Vladimir is the name of Carine’s son. The contrasting ingredients of iris, incense and amber blow hot and cold, express rigor and fluidity. The fragrance opens with the icy effect of grapefruit and natural bergamot enveloped in the aromatic notes of French sage. The heart reveals the spicy notes of natural cedar and Egyptian geranium. Then arrives the warmth of Moroccan iris, a modern leathery note and a complex ambery accord composed of sensual, woody, vanilla notes.
