Fun travel fact: Shanghai has become the ultimate city to go to if you’re on the lookout for beautiful apartments, including this Swiss lodge-inspired one I had the pleasure of staying at for a night. The combination of wooden pillars, hardwood floors, linen-lined sofas, and crisp white sheets had me going “I wish this could be my home forever”.
This sense of home, coupled with the rugged wooden interiors created the perfect setting for our editorial shoot for fashion house John Varvatos’ latest fragrance, Artisan Pure. The apartment at its best, embodies the Artisan Pure ideal: luxury in its most natural form.
The Eau de Toilette draws inspiration from the light, airy natural-tone fabrics of John Varvatos’ latest fashion designs. Combining a revitalizing blend of citrus notes (such as Spanish Lemon, Calabrain Bergamot to name a few), and fresh herbs (Orange Flowers, Coffee Tree Flower, Cardamon, etc.) with a woody base of Orris, Virginian Cedarwood and Primavera Wood from Mexico, there is a conveyance of a natural and laid-back vibe from the scent that is both rugged and luxurious.
To keep to its back-to-nature theme, the bottle’s is designed with a clean, bright and almond hue colour scheme. Sandblasted for a clean, frosted look, the iconic flask bottle is wrapped in durable hand-woven rattan stem. The cap and foot of the bottle is inspired by natural driftwood adding a touch of rugged luxury to the overall design. I mean, if Robinson Crusoe had a scent, this would pretty much be it.
Artisan Pure is available at Takashimaya, Metro (Paragon, Woodlands), Isetan (Tampines), BHG (Bugis) and Sephora (Available from 1st Dec onwards).
