The Cable Guy Charriol gets scent-ual with its premiere fragrance.

Iconic jeweler and luxury entrepreneur Philippe Charriol goes one step further in the name of all things beautiful with the unveiling of Charriol Eau de Toilette Pour Femme et Pour Homme, brainchildren of a genius collaboration between him and good friend and master perfumer Jean-Pierre Grivory. The lavish new creations herald the brand's 25th anniversary celebration this 2008 and are hitting Philippine shores this fall.

The glamorous scents—bedecked in all their precious emblematic gold, silver and plum glory, with, of course, their signature cable DNA (note the etchings on the glass bottle match the shape of those iconic bracelets)—mark a milestone for the Swiss luxury house first founded in 1983. 25 years, 88 boutiques and some 485 shop-in-shop outlets later, they decide to gift their devotees with a sensual, more intimate taste of their brand with scents that seem like liquid gold on the body and the boudoir.


Charriol Eau de Toilette Pour Femme, a delicate-yet-opulent fruity floral, brilliantly harmonizes with its fresh, luminous counterpart Eau de Toilette Pour Homme, which is a study in masculine contrasts.

Indulge in this spritzable luxury which makes its world debut in Manila—no, not even France or Switzerland got first dibs, we're that special—in their brand new boutique in Robinson's Place Manila and experience the Charriol difference. In fact MM. Charriol and Grivory were just in town to be present for the launch.
