Sometimes a girl just needs a good night out, and the fragrance launch party by Zadig and Voltaire was the perfect excuse to let my faux locs down. Set at the Ace Hotel in Shoreditch, we were introduced to This is her and This is Him the latest perfume duo by a brand that personifies the easy chic of a modern vagabond. The black and white bottles are cleverly designed to be slotted together, complimentary but individual.
This is Her, is the white bottle, with the fragrance created to be sensual and free. Although sweet the EDT has an earthy lasting depth, thanks to the sandalwood and the peppercorn. I know it is formulated for women in mind, but I could easily see a man wearing this fragrance if he wanted something with a candied powdery essence. The floral bouquet mixes Arabian jasmine, pink peppercorn, chestnut and vanilla, with sandalwood as the base note. The general consensus was the preference towards This is Him. My favourite was definitely for her, but more people were drawn to the more intense scent. Again I pledge that this fragrance can be unisex, it was warming with a kick of spice mixing incense, grapefruit, black pepper and vanilla, retaining sandalwood as the base also.
The fragrances will be available from the 12th September available in 30ml, 50ml & 100ml with accompanying beauty range and home candle.
