Flowerbomb de Paris

L’Oréal has unveiled a limited-edition version of its Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb fragrance, which will be available only in selected travel retail doors. The fragrance, called Flowerbomb de Paris, will be available from July exclusively in Parisian airport shops.

Only 1,600 numbered bottles will be available. The limited-edition fragrance was created by the Dutch design duo Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren as a tribute to Paris. It is described as a “celebration of the City of Lights."

The original Flowerbomb was itself unveiled in Paris in late 2004, prior to its launch in Europe and the US in 2005. “Flowerbomb de Paris is an ode to the French capital in a 50ml bottle,” says L’Oréal.

Inspired by “L’air de Paris”, Viktor & Rolf aim to make consumers rediscover the City of Lights through sketches of their favorite places: the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe and the Sacré Coeur, among others. These symbols decorate the faceted diamond-like flacon, which was created to the iconic city.

2010 Global Top 100 Brands

Millward Brown Optimor created the BrandZ Top 100, a ranking that identifies the world's most valuable brands measured by their dollar value. The brand ranking provides key insights and actionable information for finance, marketing and business professionals on how to manage and grow their brand assets.

the full report:


Macon-Villages is an appellation uniquely for white wines produced in certain selected communes of the Maconnais wine-producing area in southern Burgundy. The appellation represents a step up in quality from the standard Macon appellation, and specializes in dry white wines made from the Chardonnay grape variety.

The named Macon-Villages communes are permitted to add their name to the Macon appellation on labels, giving forms like "Macon Lugny" or "Macon Fuisse" or to call their wine simply Macon-Villages. If a wine is produced from grapes grown in more than one of the named communes, then the wine loses the right to claim a particular village name, and must be labeled Macon-Villages.

The typical Macon-Villages wine is lightly floral and fruity, with a warm hint of citrus fruits. The best examples have a gently nutty character, like almonds or hazelnuts.
