Bloom serves as Alessandro Michele's first women's scent for the label.

After much anticipation following a New York City launch event back in May, the campaign for Gucci Bloom, Alessandro Michele's first women's scent for the label, is finally here — and damn, does it deliver. The series of dreamy photos, which the Italian house rolled out on Instagram on Tuesday, depict Dakota Johnson, Hari Nef and Petra Collins (What. A. Trio.) standing serenely in a lush garden and wearing head-to-toe Gucci florals, of course. The campaign, photographed by Gucci favorite Glen Luchford in New York City, was inspired by "urbanity and how scent can be a way to travel somewhere that does not exist, that is purely imagined," according to a statement from Michele. "It's a surreal idea of wearing a garden." In...

How To Wear The Right Perfume For Your Skin Type

MERMAID N° 1 MERMAID PERFUME BODY OIL, RM295

Orange blossoms and the scent of ocean waves anchored in warm tropical coconut oil.
We’re all aware of the importance of picking the right skincare for your skin type, and the right clothes for your body shape, but have you ever thought about matching your fragrance to your skin type? The type of skin you have on your face stays largely the same for the rest of your body. The larger pores and more active sebum glands that characterise oily skin are found on the body as well as the face. In the same way, dryness or sensitivity are rarely limited to just the face. So when picking your signature scent, take your skin into consideration! Along with your diet, hormones, skin chemistry, microbiome, and body temperature, the type of skin you have also plays a...

The Simple Elegance of Linda Rodin’s Namesake Beauty Brand

361602
Who? Those familiar with our particular proclivities at AnOther Magazine will be au fait with Linda Rodin – a woman whose approach to self-presentation and cosmetics alike have firmly established her as one of our favourites. 67 years old and almost impossibly chic, the former model-slash-stylist's namesake skincare line, Rodin Olio Lusso, is as remarkably appealing as she is herself. A simple series of oil-based products which not only come in our favourite packaging but work with impressive vigour, Rodin explains that “my tag line is 'there is beauty in simplicity,” and thus, each incarnation exists without all of the bizarre bells and whistles that are so often extraneous to a product's efficacy. “I only make products that I personally want, need and use,” she says. Essentially, it's an...

From luxe and lavish to boho and flirty, there is a fragrance out there for every type of woman. Here, we break down the best new scents to suit your style.

Ladylike & Feminine

1480694209-hbz-perfume-comp-720
Big white floral perfumes are making a comeback this season, the perfect accompaniment to the sophisticated, refined elegance we saw on the runways. This new crop, however, isn't like the aggressive boutiques of the '80s. "What you want is to smell like flowers, not mixed with too many different notes," explains perfumer David Seth Molts of D.S. & Durga. Look for creamy tuberose, velvety ylang-ylang, or heady gardenia, combined with warming elements, such as powder, cedar, or sandalwood, which help the fragrance settle...

What a Lovely Molecule You’re Wearing

hd-aspect-1480445330-elle-elleinbook-december-chemicalattractionlead
1889. The Eiffel Tower was inaugurated, its 984 feet of wrought-iron latticework making it the tallest structure in the world. Charlie Chaplin and Adolf Hitler were born, Vincent van Gogh painted The Starry Night, and American journalist Nellie Bly circumnavigated the world in a record 72 days, picking up a pet monkey along the way. Change was in the air, literally: The year also marked the debut of Guerlain's Jicky, the first perfume to combine both synthetic and natural notes to create an abstract olfactory effect that was simultaneously spicy, strange, and striking. Before this, if you had pressed your nose to a woman's wrist or a man's lapel, you would have smelled only flowers. Jicky contained two relatively inexpensive and...

Meet the J-Pop Band With the Best Hair in Music

embed-j-pop-perfume
In a downtown Manhattan studio, three impossibly petite women stand at attention, their hands shifting in a series of minute gestures as their high-gloss hair sways smoothly. The scene is an impromptu dance demonstration from Kashiyuka, Nocchi, and A-Chan of Perfume—the beloved J-pop trio, in town to promote their fifth studio album—and the hypnotically harmonized twists and turns draw awestruck whispers, as they have now for thirteen years. “There’s a beauty in the synchronization that just gives you goose bumps,” Nocchi says of the band’s trademark movement, devised years ago by choreographer Mikiko Mizuno and one secret to their enduring appeal. “Actually, it’s nowhere near perfection . . . yet,” A-Chan adds, in playful deadpan. Given the otherworldly way they bob and...

Jared Leto’s Sexy Menage A Trois For Gucci Guilt

landscape-1472830971-hbz-gucci-jared-leto-index

Maybe you love Jared Leto from My So Called Life (Jordan Catalano, you have our hearts). Or maybe you're more of a haunting Requiem For a Dream Leto fan. It's also worth mentioning he's genius in Suicide Squad this summer. Whatever way you come at your Jared Leto fandom, his latest appearance in the campaign for Gucci Guilty—which we excitedly announced back in December—is pretty much a must watch. Leto's Gucci predecessors include actors Chris Evans and Evan Rachel Wood, both of whom have appeared in steamy Gucci Guilty ads.

The campaign was shot in Venice by director Glen Luchford and features Leto alongside models Julia Hafstrom and Vera Van Erp. And as much as we hate to crib from...

Kate Moss Wears Naked Dress In New Fragrance Video

landscape-1471289275-hbz-kate-moss-swap

To celebrate her very first fragrance, Scent of a Dream—she launched her now famous makeup line at the end of 2013—British makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury couldn't tap just any member of her illustrious Rolodex. She went straight to the top, calling on longtime friend and muse Kate Moss to perform in a sexy cool video that does not disappoint. And just what does a good friend do when you ask them a favor? They turn TF up. Moss flips her hair, shimmies her body, and hypnotizes a roomful of suitors—all while wearing a slinky, see-through jewel-encrusted gown, not dissimilar to the one Rihanna made famous at the 2014 CFDA Awards.

While the video is spectacle enough, the actual fragrance is...
