Givenchy Announces Play For Her

Givenchy Play for HerJustin Timberlake, who you may recall as the face of Givenchy’s Play for Him, has teamed up with Canadian “New Moon” actress Noot Seear to promote Play for Her. Like the 2009 men’s version, Play for Her shares a common amyris wood base adding notes of pink peppercorns, white peach, bergamot, sweet pea, magnolia, sandalwood and musks for a “sparkling” floral-woody-fruity eau de parfum in a pink bottle. There will also be a warmer Intense version (in a purple bottle) adding notes of orange blossom, orchid, patchouli, tonka bean and benzoin.

Givenchy Play for Her eau de parfum will be available in 30ml, 50ml and 75ml and the Play Intense version will be available in 50ml and 75ml.


Uma Thurman Shares Her Little Secret

Uma ThurmanIn April we heard news that Uma Thurman was set to be the face of the next Givenchy perfume. Scheduled for release in August, the perfume in question is Ange ou Demon Le Secret, a follow up to the original Ange ou Demon but this time with a little more Angel than Demon.

Ange ou Demon always played on the duality of women and how an angelic air could hide a darker, mischievous side, and the original fragrance was definitely more mysterious. This time Ange ou Demon Le Secret, a delicate floral, explores the other side of the mystery of femininity – the angelic. Chosen for her own paradoxical personality, Uma got to discover her inner angel in the TV ad for the new fragrance.

Available as an Eau de Parfum, Ange ou Demon Le Secret contains top notes of lemon, cranberry and green tea with a floral heart of jasmine and peony on a base of patchouli and woods.

Uma Thurman To Be The Face Of Next Givenchy Perfume

Uma ThurmanParfums Givenchy has announced that Uma Thurman is to be the face of their next perfume scheduled for release in September. She joins Liv Tyler who you’ll remember from Givenchy’s Very Irresistable perfume adverts and Justin Timberlake who endorsed their latest men’s fragrance, Play.

Let’s just hope that Givenchy doesn’t make the same mistake as Lancôme. In December last year Uma filed a $15 million lawsuit against Lancôme for allegedly continuing to use her image to sell products even though her contract with them expired in 2004. According to a L’Oréal spokeswoman (Lancôme’s parent company), “The use of Ms. Thurman’s image after her contract expired, however minor, was neither deliberate nor intentional.” Is that lawyer-speak for “we hoped she wouldn’t notice”?
