MANE on the web
In an ever-changing world, olfaction and gustation are very difficult notions to grasp. And yet, MANE has a unique ability to capture not only what people like, but also what deeply moves each individual, and so everyone. For eternity… or just for now.

Christine Nagel talks about her last fragrance before she left MANE for HERMES and divulges the trade secrets of The Different Co. Une Nuit Magnetique.

One of the trade secrets of Nuit Magnétique is the unusual combination of Ginger and Blueberry, two ingredients that Christine particularly likes. First, Ginger offers a spicy scent then, Blueberry delivers its tangy power. Two ingredients originally opposed but displaying a specific and unexpected alliance, offering freshness, sensuality and magnetism.

Relaunch of the famous “24 Old Bond Street” cologne, the emblematic fragrance of the house re-imagined by Christine Nagel & Violaine Collas from fragrance house MANE. A devastatingly aromatic cocktail of juniper, rose and black tea deepened with a gorgeously eccentric note of smoky, oak casked whisky. Bracingly fresh yet warmly
embracing, it is the definitive last word in English elegance.

A Conversation With… Lolita Lempicka | MANE on the web | Scoop.it

“This new fragrance expresses the story of a magnificent love. The power and the delicious thrill of being in love,” Lempicka explains. As I quickly discover, Elle L’aime seems divined from love, with the concept materialized in every detail of the fragrance, from its romantic golden carafe to its sumptuous mix of Vanilla, Myrrh, Sandalwood, Neroli, Lime, and Bergamont created by the world-renowned perfumers Christine Nagel and Serge Majoullier.

État Libre d’Orange 69 by Christine Nagel (MANE)

État Libre d’Orange 69 by Christine Nagel (MANE) | MANE on the web | Scoop.it
Didier Geraud's insight:

ELd’O/Mane partnership did produce an unqualified success, the Tilda Swinton-helmed Like This by Mathilde Bijaoui. Archives 69, to be launched in March, is a further step in that direction. Named after 69 rue des Archives, the address of the État Libre d’Orange flagship store in the Parisian quarter of the Marais, it is slated to become the brand’s “institutional scent”.

But the interesting point, to me, is the work Christine Nagel undertook on the idea of reversibilityimplied by “69”. 

 With top notes of mandarin and prune – the latter reconstructed thanks to Mane’s “Jungle Essence” technique, a CO2 extraction of the odorant molecules of just about anything, which is meant to yield an accurate “photography” of its smell – on a patchouli and musk base, Archives 69 starts out as a transparent “fruitchouli” with a slight touch of tartness lent by the mandarin.

A Movie Lover’s Guide to Fall Fragrance

“If you look at Beaton’s photos, there’s this refined elegance, especially in the details,” master perfumer Christine Nagel (Mane) explains. “We wanted to re-create that softness, the movement of their dresses, and even further, the atmosphere that she would exist in.” The resulting scent, Peony & Blush Suede, is incredibly glamorous— honestly, it even made me (a true jeans-and-flats kind of girl) feel a little Monroe-ish.

On retrouve la pivoine cette dernière en majesté dans Peony & Blush Suede de Jo Malone, même si ses pétales offrent plus de qualités décoratives qu'odoriférantes. « La pivoine plaît autant en Asie qu'en Grande-Bretagne et véhicule une image de douceur et de féminité. Pour l'évoquer, nous avons reconstitué une senteur florale douce, rehaussée de la sensualité d'une note daim », explique Christine Nagel, parfumeuse chez Mane.

Elle L'Aime, le denier opus de Lolita Lempicka, brandit une fleur de coco. « Nous voulions une note blanche inédite, encore jamais sentie. Nous avons entouré un cœur de jasmin et d'ylang de la note charnue et dense de la noix de coco, nettoyée de sa facette gustative pour éviter toute lourdeur », précise Christine Nagel, sa coauteure (avec Serge Majoullier).

Atkinsons have announced a richer, stronger version of 2013's 24 Old Bond Street named Triple Extract.

Notes for the fragrance include juniper, cardamom and galbanum in the top; rose absolute, rose Superessence, black tea and green tea in the heart; and a base of peated cask accord, incense, and tonka bean.

Prix International du Parfum Marie Claire 2014 : Prix de l'Audace pour Sì de Giorgio Armani. De l'audace, il en fallait pour créer un nouveau chypré, sublime famille olfactive un peu oubliée mais revenue en force depuis. Et aussi du cran au parfumeur Christine Nagel (MANE) pour le réinventer avec modernité, en associant à la rose de mai et au patchouli un nectar de cassis savoureux et attirant. Grande idée aussi d'enrober le tout de vanilles addictives, d'un accord bois blond ambré et de muscs soyeux, pour un sillage subtil, chaleureux, confortable et attachant. Douceur et intensité sont ainsi savamment conciliées.

Master perfumer Christine Nagel, MANE Vice President Creation Fine Fragrance, talks about making Giorgio Armani Si.

“The project was very simple and very difficult,” says Christine Nagel. “Very difficult because Mr Armani is very special; because he knows very well what he doesn’t like. He likes to be surprised and intrigued, and when he is surprised, he says ‘yes.’ But that doesn’t happen very often; most times he says ‘no’,” laughs Christine.

The best new season fragrances | MANE on the web | Scoop.it

Peonies bloom briefly later in the season, but why wait for their fleeting glory? Master perfumer Christine Nagel (Mane) has captured their delicate charm in a new Jo Malone fragrance due in store with the arrival of spring. With a crisp red apple opening, an opulent floral heart of jasmine, rose and gillyflower, and a "suede" note she has concocted to leave a lingering sensual trail, this is a fresh, feminine take on floral. We're in love with the campaign imagery, which is a modern English eccentric interpretation of circa 1950s Cecil Beaton style.

Parfum : série rose chez MANE

Comme libérée de la tradition, la rose ose ses facettes plus piquantes ou plus fruitées, et se fait moins sage, moins consensuelle. Et si cette fleur multi-facettée était une fois de plus en train de se réinventer ?

Selon qu’elle se présente en essence (effet note de tête), en absolu (idéale en fond), elle sera fruitée – litchi et coing –, miellée, «confiturée», opulente, épicée… «C’est une fleur généreuse, explique Christine Nagel, vice-présidente création parfumerie fine chez Mane, une terre d’accueil, tout lui va : comme un beau mannequin qui peut porter n’importe quel vêtement».

«En réponse, nous avons créé un absolu rose turque pauvre en méthyl-eugénol, grâce à la distillation moléculaire, qui isole une partie du produit, comme si on en sculptait les contours, et nous avons lancé toute une gamme “Purified ingredients”», explique Jean-Pierre de Mattos, directeur ingrédients & marketing de la zone Europe-Moyen-Orient-Afrique Mane. Une façon de réinventer un thème olfactif aussi ancien que la parfumerie en donnant naissance à une rose high-tech. «Cette création “low méthyleugénol” nous permet de la travailler en overdose», confirme Christine Nagel.
