Tailor made by Diptyque, the Parisian cult perfumer, Essence of J.G. distils the spirit of Maison John Galliano in a warm, intense fragrance infused with subtle sensuality. Declined as both a home candle and home spray, the scent is built around an enigmatic and enduring accord of Russian leather, incense and iris. The signature perfume casts a heady spell of burning birch wood, delicate raw fabric and carnal flower – a dreamy evocation of the caravan post on the silk route and a testament to Diptyque and Maison John Galliano’s commitment to using unique, natural materials. A nod to Diptyque’s Parisian heritage and John Galliano’s precise mastery of the cut, the packaging displays a beautifully pared down contrast between black and white, associating the trademark Maison John Galliano lettering and Diptyque’s signature oval medallion logo.
Renowned for his unique, innovative take on millinery, Stephen Jones works for the most prestigious luxury and fashion brands. Since his first collaboration with John Galliano, in 1993, he has, with ever renewed imagination, created all the hats for the Maison John Galliano runway shows. Whether they are refined or infused with a sense of pure magic, the creations of the London-based “Mad Hatter”, who graduated from the prestigious Central Saint Martins school, rise above the boundaries of fashion: they are, in truth, works of art. His faithful alliance with Maison John Galliano, spanning over more than two decades, is not only outstanding for its longevity but also for its ever-preserved vitality and creativity. Military caps or goat hair head pieces, animal-like masks or feather wide brimmed hat: with each new season, Stephen Jones delivers his whimsical translation of the collections. His hats are more than mere accessories. They stand as a reflection of the values he shares with Maison John Galliano: an utmost respect for savoir-faire, a vivid taste for risk-taking, topped with a dash of oh-so-British rebelliousness.
