Emily (performed by Lily Collins) – Lancôme La Vie Est Belle
Optimistic, assured (although her French, vogue sense and romantic choices are typically stunning) Emily’s joie de vivre typically will get her in bother, however her plucky spirit and nice concepts save her. She embodies the enjoyment of this free-spirited perfume by a trio of top-notch noses (Anne Flipo, Dominique Ropion and Olivier Polge), which was reportedly with 5000 trials within the making.

Alfie (Lucien Laviscount) – Jack Piccadilly ’69
Suave, sarcastic, however with a seemingly good coronary heart, Alfie’s the formidable banker [NB: not a spelling error] who’s absolutely London-born and pleased with it, with no intention of becoming in to the French approach of doing issues. Piccadilly was the third perfume from Richard E Grant’s home, and equally swaggers with delight. Based mostly on Grant’s personal first enterprise to the large metropolis in 1969, and dealing with proficient perfumer Alienor Massenet, these extraordinary reminiscences spring to mind through wealthy patchouli, Earl Gray tea, ginger and leather-based swirling towards the backdrop of a vibrant metropolis, cool automobiles, petrol fumes, illicit events, a buzz of pleasure. Thrillingly addictive!

Gabriel (Lucas Bravo) – DS&Durga Bistro Waters
A proficient chef conflicted by the continuing battle between his coronary heart and head (and presumably different elements, too), Gabriel will get away with an terrible lot by trying soulfully confused and working his fingers by means of his hair. Whereas dreaming up new concepts for menu, he ought to liberally spritz this: a savoury particular of juicy inexperienced peppers and fragrant, just-chopped herbs with undercurrents of fancy cocktails to observe, late-night lock-ins and snogging the chef (if you actually shouldn’t be), this at all times enjoyable area of interest home nonetheless serve up severely nice fragrances. It’s the scent of an awesome night time out and, very possible, will scent the morning after the night time earlier than.

Camille (Camille Razat) – Histoire de Parfums That is Not a Blue Bottle 1.2
Ah, Camille – the gal pal unfairly turned love rival with secrets and techniques of her personal to cover. I believe her love of artwork can be intrigued by this modern area of interest French home’s scent impressed by ‘The Treachery of Pictures’ – a famously surrealist work from the Nineteen Twenties by Belgian painter René Magritte. It resonates the dualities of glowing gentle and fiery feelings, so excellent for Camille. From a brilliant starting of ivy leaf with a fizz of pink pepper, the softness of lilac and lily of the valley are interrupted by passionate ylang ylang’s embrace, with the bottom of sandalwood and vanilla-lapped musk being attractive in a luminously insouciant however now subversively attractive approach.

Sylvie (Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu) – Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche
Being the boss isn’t at all times straightforward, particularly if you’re undecided you are the boss anymore, and also you’re doubting your romantic entanglements; so I believe Sylvie would attain for a traditional that reminds her of extra carefree occasions and boosts her confidence. Utterly stylish however with a bohemian soul, Rive Gauche was launched in 1971 and – shockingly, then – introduced in tin casing so a lady on-the-go may throw it in her bag . Timelessly French Chypre in type however with that rebellious Left Financial institution spirit. Soapy, glowing aldehydic bubbles burst to clean-cut woodiness with claws out, whereas the wealthy oakmoss dry down is an irresistibly seductive purr.

At all times dapper, barely eccentric, however ever reliable in a disaster – even when everybody appears to abandon Emily, Luc is a good friend certainly and thus deserves a scent to match his quirky however heat persona. Composed by grasp perfumer Michel Almairac (who runs the home together with his sons), count on mischievous names paired with immaculately blended fragrances that mix nice style with not taking your self too severely. This one wafts fragrant notes of espresso and funky, rooty vetiver with undercurrents of naughtiness implied by a easy infusion of leather-based.

Julien (Samuel Arnold) – Christian Louboutin Loubicrown
Dramatic? As if! Okay, properly typically he can go a tiny bit excessive in his reactions, however Julien’s tantrums by no means final that lengthy, and he’s a kind of mates you’d undoubtedly need to social gathering with (so long as you weren’t held liable for their actions). By no means precisely averse to a designer identify with a little bit of boldness and bling, his ever-colourful wardrobe wants a perfume that’s simply as unbelievable, and I reckon he’d love the topped bottle, too. The scent itself is one which beckons the crimson carpet through oodles of cedar, deliciously resinous patchouli and a tonka bean accord that can draw crowds of admirers for one more sniff.

Mindy (Ashley Park) – L’Orchestre Parfum Rose Trombone
Gregarious, loyal and super-talented, Mindy is a favourite of Emily in Paris followers – a powerful singer with a troublesome background of a household who undoubtedly don’t approve of her busking profession selections. Mindy’s fortunes could also be altering, however which means additional problems for her romantic life. This area of interest French fragrance home couldn’t be extra excellent – all their fragrances have songs impressed by them, written by world class musicians; this one’s a fantastic raspberry-tinged rose that turns right into a smoky smooch of vanilla-laced rum. Suppose: torrid glances, forbidden kisses and the sultry voice of a chauntress rising above all of it, aching with emotion, hushing a crowd.
