The vitamin C trend
The benefits of this antioxidant vitamin have been known for a long time: it helps protect against cell aging and strengthens the immune system. More effective than existing supplements, liposomal vitamin C appeared on the market after the discovery of the American Les Nachmans, who was able to avoid heart transplantation by treating himself with intravenous vitamin C injections. This food supplement specialist then sought an alternative to injections, which was simpler but just as effective, and filed a patent for his discovery: liposomal encapsulation. This process offers a bioavailability close to 100%, whereas with a cachet or a food, 85% of its active ingredients are destroyed by the digestive system. Shield against oxidative stress, vitamin C boosts the production of collagen and elastin, with visible effects on the skin. At the same time, it contributes to the proper functioning of the immune system and helps to fight against fatigue and exhaustion.

Perfumer of the perfume house Le Couvent, Jean-Claude Ellena delivers a new opus for the signature collection. Vetivera highlights the root of vetiver, a love potion in Africa, spiced with pepper and supported by cedar wood from Virginia. For his new extract, whose concentration is higher than a perfume, Thibaud Crivelli chose amber, worked by the perfumer Quentin Bisch. Inspired by a jungle that is both dark and colorful, Ambre Chromatique blends the sensual benzoin and Bourbon vanilla with the syrupy fruitiness of osmanthus. The new Franco-Brazilian brand OUI Paris is launching Paradis Rouge, imagined by perfumer Pierre Aulas, at the heart of which Damask rose comes alive on contact with notes of cardamom and sandalwood.
