NOW SMELL THIS: Call it eau de nightclubbing. Only four seasons into showing on the couture runway, Alexandre Vauthier has developed a signature scent with perfumer Francis Kurkdjian, the nose behind Jean Paul Gaultier’s hit fragrance Le Mâle. “He wanted something metallic that smelled of fur,” Kurkdjian said. This translated into a voluptuous rose and jasmine accord, with a touch of spice and a green aldehydic metallic note. So far, only a handful of bottles of the scent — with the working title “AV1” — have been produced for Vauthier’s models and clients to wear.
