Lancome Idole

"Idôle - Made for women, by women.
Three talented female perfumers from across the world united to create a sophisticated yet unapologetically modern NEW fresh fragrance with notes of bright citrus, clean rose, spotless jasmine, white musks and vanilla. At the core of this fragrance stands the most noble and iconic perfume ingredient, the rose. With four roses, Idole's modern, radiant, youthful rose is revealed. Jasmine absolutes accompany this unique rose scent for a clean, intense softness which blooms gracefully. Enveloping the fragrance like a cocoon, notes of bergamont explode with juicy pear and a touch of pink peppercorn. With a profound respect for our planet and its people, Idole invests in global communities by sourcing our ingredients ethically and sustainably."

It's a huge honor to be able to represent a brand like Lancöme and join such an incredible line-up of iconic women

- Idole ambassadress, Zendaya

Zendaya's commitment to charitable causes, empowerment and education, together with her strong self-identity and irresistible appeal, embody all things Idôle.

Art of Glass - Behind fragrance's most iconic bottles.

Behind The Glass
They story behind a perfume bottle is just as heady and complex as the fragrance inside. We asked designers who have dreamed up our favorite bottles in recent years to distill their creative vision.

LANCOME Idole, $96
Architect and industrial designer Chafik Gasmi creates sculptural pieces for brands such as Baccarat, Kenzo, and Bulgari. In 2019, he crafted one of the world's slimmest perfume bottles for Lancome's newest scent.

"I never imagined the bottle standing vertically. Never. In my mind, women didn't need another object to put on their bathroom shelves. I pictured a flat, refillable, ultra-portable bottle with the proportions of a smartphone, which the hand is already used to. I wanted to create a bottle so thin that we had to construct various ways to create it. The glass stuck together and explodd when we used traditional blow-molding methods. Finding the solution was a real work of science. In the end, we designed the edges with enough volume to allow the air to circulate. I've loved creating an object that has tension between sturdiness and softness. It adds dimension to the way we experience fragrance. When people tell me, 'But it can't stand!' I simply answer, 'But who cares?' Placed in your hand or carried in a bag, the bottle is close to you. It becomes an extension of you - an emotional, tactile, visual extension." -Chafik Gasmi
