The world-renowned iconic luxury brand has finally made it's way into Malaysia luxury door, Starhill Gallery. It is an honour to be invited to attend Charriol's official launch of it's new-concept flagship boutique in Malaysia.

I was late for almost an hour coz caught in the mad traffic in KL city itself. Well, that's the traffic's norm on weekdays in KL itself. Luckily managed to reach Starhill before the event started and dropped my name card for lucky draw. Oh well, just trying my luck!

Charriol also have a range of perfumes/fragrances cater to both women & men. The round bottles on the left is EDT/EDP for women while the classic square on the right is for the gents. 

Here's 2 of my favorite: (Left) Show-Off, the latest Eau de Toilette for women by Charriol. It smells fresh, fruity and exuberant blackcurrant, speaks of delicate and elegant with peach velvet. The round and feminine bottle sparkled femininity with its delicate violet hues and precious floral essence of violet absolute, lotus blossom extract and rose petals.
(Right) Le Eau De Parfum of sophisticated radiance for an exceptional fragrance. The luxuriant fragrance is rich and indulging, made with its best essence of juniper berry, orange blossom, vanilla orchid and tonka bean. Simply loves the soft woody scent, classic with a modern twist!

Charriol's watch collection consist of several distinct lines with 18kt gold or steel models. They are the Actor, Alexadre, Colvmbvs, Rotonde, St.Tropez and Parisii.

The latest St.Tropez collection: A classic yellow gold-plated bracelet/jewelry watch with a fresh new twist!
