From March 30 to April 30, Godiva is on show at Brussels Airport. Terminals A and B each host a different chocolate dress. These chocolate works of art were created around two emblematic collections from the Godiva brand, and its chocolates that are as beautiful to look at as they are delicious to taste.
In the Walkthrough of Terminal A, passengers will be able to admire an impressive dress mostly made of “Iconic Heart boxes“, this luxurious assortment of chocolates with a couture design. This elegant gold heart shaped box with structured packaging houses 14 famous Godiva hearts in dark chocolate, milk, and white versions. A delicacy as refined as it is irresistible.
Do not miss the dress showed on the Walkthrough of Terminal B either, with its warm and golden tones, based on the Gold Discovery box theme. This selection of chocolates with perfect lines is enjoyed with the eyes first. The assortment, both colorful and varied, takes us on a real taste travel through the art of the famous Belgian chocolate maker. With its Godiva-embellished couture packaging, the Gold Discovery box will delight even the most demanding chocolate lovers.
Throughout April, Terminal A’s Fashion Studio offers its customers a 15% discount on the Spring Summer collection of four top ready-to-wear brands: enjoy this reduction from 1 to 15 April on Essentiel and Superdry Men and on Boss Orange and Twin-Set from 15 to 30 April. To mark the occasion, designers have dressed the two mannequins welcoming visitors at the entrance of the shop, thus providing you with a complete look!
Although Boss Orange and Superdry Men don’t spring to mind when mix-and-matching designers, the result is an alluring casual chic. Boss Orange is the relaxed collection of the renowned German brand specialising in well-cut business attire and elegant suits, while English brand Superdry owes its success to a clever combination of Japanese and American graphic influences with a very British attention to cut and detail.
Women have not been forgotten and the looks modelled by the mannequins associate Essentiel with Twin-Set. Since its creation in 1999 in Antwerp, the Belgian ready-to-wear brand merges timeless sophistication and contemporary style with an extra touch of originality that exemplifies Antwerp fashion. The resolutely different but highly sophisticated Italian brand Twin-Set specialises in knits and is immediately identifiable through its feminine and affirmed pieces for a modern and elegant woman.
Exclusively created for travellers, Jean Paul Gaultier Airlines perfume collection has just landed in the IDF boutiques. This limited edition comprises a fragrance for men and another for women, both of which perfectly reinterpret the famous couturier’s emblematic scents LE MÂLE and CLASSIQUE.
For this Airlines version, iconic LE MÂLE is clad with the traditional stripes of the brand. The oriental/floral/aquatic blend evokes freshly washed t-shirts worn after a hard day spent lounging by the pool. Built around the Neroli flower and mint, the virile perfume rests on a blend of sage, Tonka bean, sandalwood and vanilla, which confers it soft and sexy characteristics.
The female-shaped bottle of the CLASSIC eau de toilette is clad in an electric blue bustier. Underneath, we discover an oriental/aldehyde/fern scent that hints at ginger – an essential element of Jean Paul Gaultier’s CLASSIC eau de toilette – that adds a sweet touch to the perfume. Neo-labdanum, sugarcane and vanilla give the scent its crystalline aspect that recalls an irresistibly delicious lemon sorbet. Finally, the bottom notes of musk make this feminine perfume by Jean Paul Gaultier completely addictive.
You will find these two new perfumes in our Brussels and Charleroi IDF shops and online, in our webshop.
Two new stars have appeared in Lancôme’s constellation of women fragrances: La Nuit Trésor à la folie eau de parfum and La vie est belle L’Éclat, Eau de toilette. The latest version of the perfume that exemplifies the joy and happiness radiating through Julia Roberts’ dazzling smile is founded on neroli essence, which irradiates its warm notes around iris, jasmine and orange blossom. The resulting perfume is a light bouquet of lovely flowers ending on addictive bottom notes of musk.
The brand new La Nuit Trésor à la Folie pays tribute to the first frissons of love. A soft black velvet ribbon encircles the incandescent red, diamond-shaped bottle that contains an intoxicating, oriental perfume. Like its precursor – the iconic original Trésor – this scent is built around the queen of all flowers, the rose. A bouquet of jasmine and peonies sublimates the intense, carnal scent of Damascena flowers whilst bottom notes intermingling vanilla, Tonka bean, patchouli, amber and musk bring the delightful Nuit Trésor à la folie together for a voluptuous, indispensable floral fragrance.

Scotch & Soda, the quirky clothing brand born in Amsterdam, launched its first perfume line: BARFLY. Much like the clothes, the perfume has its own distinctive character and is full of details. Intense, but simple, young and transparent. As the scent develops from its fresh top notes of citrus- herb to the middle notes of lavender and jasmine, mixed with outspoken components such as Sandal and Cedar wood, it eventually settles down to reveal its warm base notes of musk and Madagascar Vanilla.
As we’ve come to expect from the brand, their perfume also beams the typical Scotch & Soda’s design aesthetics. With its no-nonsense bottle, carefully selected through vintage archives and crafted top with the Barfly logo embossed, Barfly is a truly special addition to the brand. It stands out by its individuality, not only by its extraordinary and surprising scent but also by its name and product design.
BARFLY is available in the Fashion Studio Store in terminal A – don’t tame your curiosity and be sure to check it out the next time you pass by the store!

If you decide to buy her some perfume, fall under the spell of blackberries with Gucci Guilty Absolute from the brand’s GuiltyNotGuilty. The intense scent boasts irresistible and addictive notes celebrating free love.
Chocolate lovers are spoiled for choice: Godiva offers a limited edition chocolate hearts in a delightful golden heart-shaped box. Dark, milk or white… they are all gorgeous.

For refined and multifaceted, dark handsome lovers, Prada’s Eau de l’Homme is an intense perfume that effortlessly treads the line between the freshness of red ginger and neroli essence and the intense amber and iris mixed with sandalwood and cedar wood.
Now for the big night… Lanson Champagne especially imagined a duet of mini-bottles: Black Label and Rose Label. The mythical Black Label illustrates the power and finesse of the Lanson style, whilst the second paved the way to the trend of rosé champagnes, which are particularly fine and delicate. Are there such things as masculine or feminine wines? Try both and decide for yourself!

As the New Year starts, Mya Bay jewellery makes its shining entrance in the Charleroi and Brussels airport boutiques (Fashion Studio and Relay). The young Belgian brand was developed by Sophie Johnen, a designer who draws her inventiveness from her travels, the personalities of the many women she met and words… that appear like so many magic formulas on bangles inspired by slave bracelets.
With is wide range of feminine and aerial bracelets and pendants, the Wild Gold collection pay tribute to nature. The sunny, trendy and easy to wear jewels all convey happy and optimistic messages and come in three colours (silver, yellow and pink gold). The clever little pieces can be adjusted with a three fastening system and bear strong messages: “You rock my world” “une amie en or”, or simply “love”. The universal word is also available in a stone-encrusted necklace.
And because there’s nothing like making a good deal, the affordability of the collection means that you can treat yourself to several pieces all at once! How’s that for good tidings!
