Find your inner Parisian with Ted Lapidus Orissima + Giveaway

When it comes to style inspiration, I look to the French. There’s an elegant simplicity, a subtle sensuality, and an effortlessly feminine allure about the woman on the streets of Paris. J’adore! I love scrolling through Pinterest and Instagram snaps of French street style, picturing myself strolling along the Champs-Élysées, ordering Crêpe Suzette or Pain au chocolat with a polite s‘il vous plaît, careful not to spill on my loose button-up blouse and soft silk scarf.

Yes, I am playing into the typical tourist fantasy but indulge me here.

This month Ted Lapidus has launched their new Eau de Parfum, Orissima, inspired by the elegance, charm and style of a Parisian woman.  The scent was developed by Perfumer Alexandra Monet, who wanted to “paint a multi-faceted woman through the senses.”

The scent will definitely appeal to those with a sweet tooth. Think peach tarte tartin at a sidewalk café, or a box filled with luxury chocolates. You’ll instantly catch the caramel note intertwined with soft peach and a hint of sparkling grapefruit. This softens to reveal the floral heart of peony, iris and orange blossom.

Like the juice, the bottle has been inspired by the various facets of the Parisian woman, shaped as a glass tower with sculpted sides topped with an octagonal copper gold cap. “City architecture [symbolizes] the many different faces of The Parisian Woman,” says designer Marc Touati. “The bottle represents a sophisticated woman full of natural grace.ʺ I found the final look simplistic with a classic, retro elegance. What do you think?

Ted Lapidus Orissima launched in July 2017. It retails from R495 and is available at Edgars, Foschini, Truworths and leading retailers. Want your own bottle? Scroll down for details.
