Press Release – IDÔLE


To every woman who seizes her life with decisiveness and power, Who stays on the path of optimism and confidence, Who refuses to compromise and always stays true to herself, Who gets involved resolutely and lives her life absolutely, Who sees her success as a means rather than an end, Who pushes back the limits and creates the world of tomorrow:



“2019. The world is going through profound changes. The cards are being shuffled. A new generation of women is questioning the status quo, breaking free from tradition and re-defining the meaning of success.

The digital revolution has inspired a shift in our society away from the old model of success, to allow for the emergence of new, inspiring pioneer figures. These leaders are much more than just examples for women to follow. They express the absolute conviction that each woman has the power to change the world by stepping resolutely towards her dream.

To change the world, you first have to change yourself. To push back your own limits. Brought by new models of success, women are taking a new look at their own ambitions. The old schemas of achievement are giving way to the pursuit of success according to your own rules, by yourself and for yourself. But also for others.

Collective and beneficial for all women, this new confidence is inciting them to raise the bar a little higher every time. Further. Stronger.






Lancôme has imagined its new great fragrance in the wake of this contemporary femininity. Lancôme is pursuing its dream: to celebrate women and accompany them on their path to happiness.

Because throughout history, women have continued to change, to reinvent themselves, the brand has continued to follow their evolution and remain as close as possible to their aspirations.

A new vision of success is taking shape. Idôle is the fragrance of a conquering feminity.”

– Françoise Lehmann, Global Brand President









More Than A Name,

A Rallying Cry

Idôle. It is in his own legacy that Lancôme, has found the name of his new feminine fragrance. This word, present in his universe for several decades, has become obvious. Through this choice, the Maison proudly asserts its coherence with itself and claims her story to write the future.






The five letters of this word, so important to Lancôme, say it all: the aura and the power. But also softness and delicacy. All the values of a new generation of women who are conquering their success without sacrificing their femininity, all rallied under the iconic Ô hat of Lancôme.

A clever reference to the emblematic bottle of this new fragrance, a subtle reminder of its characteristic halo, Idôle crystallizes a new vision of success: one that rallies rather than separates. A success that turns women into inspiring leaders. An individual success to be shared and passed along to incite others to believe in themselves and to succeed in turn. A personal fulfillment that transcends the limits of the individual to influence the collective power of the community.

Because there is an idol in every woman, and because every woman is an idol, Idôle is a rallying cry. A name that resonates, now more than ever, with a unique strength. An invitation to believe in yourself, to surpass yourself, to forge a new path: your own.






A Powerful Totem

A great deal of technical achievements and innovations have been made based on the conviction that the impossible is just a possibility waiting to be accomplished.

We think that the Idôle bottle is the slimmest in the world to date at just 15 mm thick. This finesse emphasizes its rigorously geometric structure and ideal proportions. It is easy to handle. A breeze to grasp. The hand immediately fits around the object as if it has always been familiar to it. Inspired by the grip of the object that never leave our hands. A bottle as light as a virtuality. The glass surfaces are so thin that the fragrance appears to be holding itself in the palm of the hand. An emotional grip. A magical sensation. Unprecedented.

But more than just an achievement, the Idôle bottle is a symbol









As clear as can be, simply outlined with a golden frame, the Idôle bottle does not call for long speeches. It is a blank page that remains to be written. A promise of infinite possibilities in which every woman may project her own reality and her own dreams.

At the center of its perfectly smooth facade, a concave halo vibrates like a beating heart, evoking the courage and passion that it takes to be bold.







A crystalline container revealing a liquid subtly tinted with a warm, joyful pink, the Idôle bottle evokes a filter through which to view the world. A woman’s loyal companion, it helps her—little by little—to take a confident outlook, a fearless posture and a decided step towards victory. A dynamic silhouette, sharp as the will, surrounded by a golden hoop as a frame of determination. «A powerful totem» ready to be brandished to rally other women.










The perfectly timeless Idôle bottle asserts itself as an object impervious to fleeting fashions and trends. Available in several refillable formats to reduce environmental impact.

It is accompanied by a perfume fountain at point of sales called “La Recharge” (list available on to refill it in a very intuitive way.

This durable object is also nomadic, thanks to the cases that may be used to protect it, accessorize it and take it along anywhere.









Chafik Gasmi,

Creating The Bottle

Of The Futur

The architect, industrial designer and artistic director Chafik Gasmi enjoys world-renown fame built on the strength of his unique talent.
Who better than this radiant figure, a creative jack-of-all-trades and longtime Lancôme collaborator, could have designed the Idôle bottle? Indeed, it is in Chafik Gasmi, founder of Chafik Studio, that Lancôme entrusted the design of this bottle of an unprecedented finesse, comparable to a beam of light. With its perfect harmony, balanced proportions and sensuous concave shape, the Idôle bottle is part of a true design approach: a cross between a talisman and a jewel. A ceaselessly timeless creation designed to be able to adapt to new technologies, crafted so that it will not be necessary to dispose of it or even to replace it. An absolutely modern object.



«While for many decades, exterior status symbols partially dictated the design of beauty objects—those created to reign in our bathrooms, to dethrone the ordinary—, in today’s world it is weightlessness and travel-friendliness that set the tone for the scale of value. This is why a fun, easy-to-handle perfume bottle that fits into the palm of the hand—that may be laid flat, slipped into a pocket, and taken along anywhere—is a companion whose extreme discretion contributes to its extreme distinctiveness.» – Chafik Gasmi



IDÔLE, For Women

Of A New Era


Lancôme is moving into new territory, creating tomorrow’s addiction on a register that has remained unexplored to this day: «clean.» “Clean”, a fragrance field of refreshing purity, is where well-being meets reassurance. Like an untouched territory harboring infinite promise and possibilities, «clean» is the fragrance translation of a white page on which each woman is free to write her story.



Basing its departure point on a “clean” accord” that would break with tradition, Lancôme looked at re-inventing an accord that had always been close to its heart, ever since it was chosen as the first symbol for the brand, and turned to the rose. To create a note consistent with the flower—both verdant and tender, fresh and voluptuous, four exceptional qualities—, two essences, an absolute and a rose water come together to form the heart of the formula. Lightly enhanced with a touch of jasmine, this kaleidoscope of roses radiates a sparkling floral light. In the background, a trace of patchouli and an assembly of white musks compose a white chypre base that brings Idôle its full elegance.


A new kind of musky chypre floral fragrance, Idôle is a true achievement. A skin scent that is both delicate and high-impact, both comfortable and powerful. A sensation of purity; a luminous, enveloping halo. An aura of confidence and femininity to conquer the world.

The Creation Of IDÔLE,

A Feminine Adventure

A collective creation, Idôle emerged from the combination of three talents. Three female perfumers from three continents. Three different life paths, three sensibilities, three characters. One love for fragrance. Brought together by the desire to create a new, universal addiction, Shyamala Maisondieu, Nadège Le Garlantezec and Adriana Medina worked together to craft the Idôle note based on its original clean accord. Combining discipline and intuition, each one brought her unique contribution to the one-of-a-kind signature of this fragrance.



Benefiting from a dual culture, Shyamala Maisondieu grew up in Malaysia, studied in Europe and then worked in Hong Kong and Paris. With a strong attachment for nature, she struck upon the perfect proportions of the various types of roses and the jasmine to form a radiant floral heart with a natural glow.
A true Parisian, Nadège Le Garlantezec represents France with her elegance and affection for the tradition and expertise of perfumery. Precise and meticulous, she performed countless tests to find the right balance between the patchouli and the musks to bring Idôle its lingering, full-bodied, bright white chypre scent.
An American born in Colombia, Adriana Medina instantly wins people over with her sparkling, spontaneous personality. Her creative style reflects this facet, bringing immediate appeal to her fragrances. For Idôle, she crafted a beaming, playful opening allure where invigorating bergamot enhances the juicy accents of a pear note.
These close-knit, complementary creators brought forth the first clean floral chypre on the fragrance market. A universal addiction created by women, for every woman.



The Rose Of IDÔLE,

A Symbol Of Lancôme’s Commitment

Glowing at the heart of the Idôle formula, the floral accord illustrates the commitments of Lancôme, a fragrance house determined to push back the limits of the perfume industry. In the perfume world—one often perceived as opaque— Lancôme claims both the transparency and traceability of the ingredients within its formulas. We refuse to compromise between the fragrance quality of its creations and the protection of the natural resources and people who produce them.





As part of L’Oréal’s socially productive purchasing program, «Solidarity Sourcing», created to put the momentum of the group for social inclusion, Lancôme benefits from exclusive raw materials, custom-crafted for its fragrances. One of these, the Isparta Rose petal Essence (Turkey), essential to the fragrance signature of Idôle, is the subject of a development project of which the objective is to improve the positive impact of the supply chain on a social, economic and environmental scale.










Cultivated in the cradle of rose cultivation in Turkey, this essence is exclusively made for Lancôme. It intensifies the refreshing, verdant facets of the flower, contributing to the sparkling natural expression of Idôle. Lancôme supports this family-based industry by helping to improve agricultural practices and work conditions and by assisting in the obtainment of a «fair trade» certification. The project also helps the women working in its production to be recognized for their contributions.
