How much do we love, Helmut Lang? Let us count the ways. Well, first, there’s the impeccable ready-to-wear collection—no one does an asymmetric hem quite like the house of HL. Then, there are the shoes, the glorious shoes—designed for the realities of city living. And now, to top it all off, there’s fragrance.
Barneys couldn’t be more thrilled to relaunch—after a 15-year-hiatus—Helmut Lang Parfums, a collection of three divine scents that can be worn by men or women. (These are modern times, after all.) Helmut Lang Eau de Parfum is sensual and ephemeral, Eau de Cologne is seductive and direct, and Cuiron is minimalist and classic. However, it should go without saying that they are best experienced in the flesh. Drop by one of our flagship stores to give them a try.
“Powder gives way to a deep, musky soul. Floral top notes of lavender, rosemary, and orange tree clarify and brighten. Sandalwood, cedarwood, amber, and patchouli soften and mellow. Moody, confident, transitory.”
“Seductive and direct. A clean, bright opening. Rosemary and orange tree yield to a caramelized, musky heart of cedarwood, vanilla, sandalwood, and patchouli. The calm of the morning after. Complex, intriguing, familiar.”
“The minimalist nuance of fine, worn-in leather. Bergamot, mandarin, pink peppercorn, and cassia oil deliver crispness and transparency. Rich woods, ancient resins and suede notes ground and equalize. Energetic and sensual on the skin.”
