After living for years next to the Moulin Rouge in Paris’ Montmartre, Vilhelm Parfumerie founder Jan Ahlgren is launching a scent inspired by the glittering nightlife of his former neighborhood. “There’s something extremely sexy about it all, especially when you hear stories of how it was in the past,” Ahlgren says. His Fleur Burlesque isn’t the season’s only launch that evokes the ambience of a cabaret—there’s also Chanel’s Vamp Attitude collection, heady scents from Prada, Ex Nihilo and Arquiste and even an extravagant Givenchy face mask in seductive black lace. RéVive Skincare founder Dr. Gregory Bays Brown chose a photograph by Joel Grey for his annual Artbox. “It’s not her entire face…it’s a bit mysterious,” says Brown of the image. “Interestingly enough, my favorite movie of all time is Cabaret.”
