Galliano’s Sweet New Scent

A perfect wedding day fragrance from Galliano.

We’re always into romance, all things pink and Parisian which makes John Galliano’s latest scent Parlez-moi D’Amour ($79 for 50ml at Holt Renfrew) a fitting obsession. Named after the famous Edith Piaf song, which translated, means “Speak to Me About Love,” this juice is a cypre featuring cypre absolute concentrated in amber dry-down notes to give is a musky, woody finish. Combined with crisp, bright notes like zingy ginger, blueberries and bergamot, and sultry florals like jasmine and Turkish rose, Parlez-moi D’Amour can be described as fruity, sweet, spicy, romantic and edgy—it pretty much has something to suit everyone. The face of the fragrance is Taylor Momsen who isn’t particularly a favourite, but I do love what photographer Ellen Von Unworth has done with her in the sexy little commercial for the fragrance, where Momsen sings her own song “You.” Check it out here.
