Lalique Group and Brioni present the third opus in their fragrance wardrobe: Brioni Eau de Parfum Éclat

Brioni unveils a new scented signature with a blissful facet of the modernman: Brioni Eau de Parfum Éclat. It is Brioni’s third opus and bursting with top-tier and sustainable materials and is housed in a sleek, eco-responsible glass bottle.

To complement its leisurewear pieces, the House is proud to present a new opus in its fragrance wardrobe, as a last, refined, joyful touch: Brioni Eau de Parfum Éclat – a word that means “brightness” or “brilliance” in French.
Brioni has once more turned to Master Perfumer Michel Almairac at Robertet, who already composed the House’s first two signature fragrances. He delivers the most radiant fragrance in the collection, working closely with Norbert Stumpfl, Brioni Design Director. 

“Timeless yet current, the fragrance is both sober and sparkling. An intriguing contrast of pureness and electricity”, 
says Norbert Stumpfl.

Michael Almairac adds: 
“The spirit of the Brioni Eau de Parfum Eclat was inspired by an enchanted
day, from sunrise to sunset. In this new fragrance, you can feel both the freshness of the early
morning and the reassuring softness of nightfall. Each note that composes it, has been carefully
chosen from our finest raw materials.”

The streamlined formula of Brioni Eau de Parfum Éclat blends high-performance materials and sensuous olfactory notes. For Brioni, Michel Almairac worked on a short formula with top-tier ingredients, tailored for freshness and brightness such as juicy grapefruit, precious frankincense, radiant roses and creamy sandalwood. A perfect balance of technicity and artisanal craftsmanship, refinement and fluidity. The new fragrance is both long-lasting and remarkable – it is a scent that marks one’s presence with a radiant aura and an unforgettable trail.

In a continued spirit of sourcing in more sustainable ways, the House selects environmentally and socially responsible ingredients for its fragrances. The Grasse-based fragrance house Robertet pays special attention to the farming populations and their partnerships to protect natural resources andimprove crop conditions, with traceability from planting to harvesting. The Brioni fragrances blendznatural sustainable materials, are vegan, cruelty-free and free from artificial colouring.

LUSH: Protection, Restoration and Regeneration of West Toba Forest

LUSH supports the SOS Sumatran Orangutan Society with the aim of increasing global awareness of the wildlife paradise of West Toba. LUSH is committed to the local communities and supports them in protecting their rainforests. In 2018, LUSH funded a study that mapped the habitats of orangutans in Sumatra. The study concluded that West Toba is considered a critical area in the Sumatran rainforest for the conservation of endangered megafauna. The West Toba area is home to orangutans, Sumatran tigers, gibbons, hornbills and sun bears.

In West Toba there is a forest corridor that connects the habitat of orangutans and other wildlife in this biodiversity hotspot. Forest Edge Communities, Frontline Partners, SOS and LUSH support conservation efforts to preserve this vital ecosystem.


SOS urgently needs money to secure the long-term protection of the forests in West Toba. The funds will be spent on conservation initiatives jointly created by the local communities in West Toba, the organization SOS and local partners:
Securing a wildlife corridor between the forests to bring the orangutans and other endangered megafauna back together and secure their future.
Providing the needed tools for the forest-based, local communities in West Toba to give them the tools for sustainable management and development.

To support this project, LUSH created a limited-edition Orangutan bath bomb. All profits from this product go to support the protection measures in West Toba. The orangutan bath bomb and contains restorative Sumatran patchouli oil, which exudes an enticing, grounding scent.
Inside each bath bomb is a ticket. This invites bathers to “immerse themselves in the sounds of the Sumatra rainforest”. The ticket also has a QR code that leads to a website where customers can download a soundscape from the depths of the Sumatran rainforest in West Toba.

Held annually on the last Saturday of the Islay Music and Malt Festival (Fèis Ìle), Ardbeg Day is a worldwide celebration of all things Ardbeg. This year, the event will take place on June 4, and the festivities will take place at the Distillery, online, and at local events around the world. To celebrate the launch of its latest 'punk-turing' limited edition, Ardcore, the Distillery is calling on its fans to rally for the loudest event on the whiskey calendar.


Ardbeg, a Distillery that's had more ups and downs than a punk, presents Ardcore. Created from roasted dark malt – an unconventional choice, and a first for Ardbeg – this spirit focuses on what's happening up front, center stage. Incinerated to exhaustion, the malt is what defines its distinctive profile. Described by Dr. Bill Lumsden as "tasting like a bullet of fire", this delicious and devilish spirit is a product for posterity. Inspired by the easygoing attitude of Ardbeg fans, this whiskey is bottled for them. Arcore also draws inspiration from Islay's unsung punk past, celebrating the characters of "PUNK ELLEN", the supposed nickname for Islay's main port, Port Ellen, in the 1970s.

Colin Gordon, Director of Ardbeg Distillery, said: “This year will be my first physical Ardbeg Day. Whether at the Distillery or at home, we hope that many of you will be ready to party on June 4th."

Dr Bill Lumsden, Head of Distillation and Whiskey Creation at Ardbeg, says: "Ardcore is a whiskey that has its heart on its label - its black heart! Created from roasted dark malt, burnt to the bitter end. exhaustion, this spirit is all about substance, notes of charcoal and sweet smoke give it an intense nose, while powerful notes of anise and dark chocolate make this bottle a product for the biggest fans of Arcore."

Ardcore will be available for purchase from Ardbeg Embassies, Whiskey Specialists, online and the Distillery Visitor Center. Events on Ardbeg Day will comply with local authority guidelines and attendance may be limited for everyone's safety and enjoyment.
