Zadig and Voltaire have released new flankers of two fragrances, “THIS IS HIM!” and “THIS IS HER!”. The pair was originally released in 2016, one of which was created as a dark oriental, and the other was blended to become floral and gourmand. Zadig and Voltaire Vibes of Freedom focuses on being two contrasting scents with slight nuances that connect the pair.
Zadig and Voltaire Vibes of Freedom: This Is Him features a fresh set of top notes and warm pairing in the heart and base. First off, the fragrance opens with Lavender and Mandarin at the top. Below in the heart is Cardamom and Incense while the base concludes with Cedarwood and Patchouli.
The flanker For Her is very fresh and floral off the top and heart, concluding with a gourmand touch. Peony and Pear kick off the top, subsequently meeting with Jasmine and Rose in the heart. The base comes to an end with Chestnut Cream.
The original This is Him release utilized a similar set of top notes: Black Pepper and Grapefruit. Vanilla, Incense and Sandalwood complete the rest of the original release. Comparatively, the note breakdowns are extremely similar. Vibes of Freedom appears to be taking a bit more of a clean, fresh approach with the absence of Black Pepper.
Last year, the house released This is Him! Art 4 all which leaned much heavier towards the Vanilla and Sandalwood. In comparison, the new release is seemingly better suited for warm weather and as an easy, everyday wear.
The 2016 release of This is Her! was a gourmand fragrance that had top notes of Pink Pepper, Silkwood Blossom and Jasmine Sambac. In the heart were notes of Whipped Cream, Vanilla and Chestnut while Sandalwood and Cashmere Wood concluded the scent.
It appears as if the new flanker is only going to carry on the Chestnut and Cream aroma from the original release. There is still the use of floral, although they are much different in the scent that they create.
Zadig and Voltaire Vibes of Freedom is a great collection for any couple! The house utilizes similar notes when releasing fragrance pairs, creating synchronicity between the two scents.
The release for Women will retail for $63, $93 or $124 USD depending on if you grab the 30ml, 50ml or 100ml. On the men’s side, expect to pay $73 USD for the 50ml and $99 for the 100ml.
