'Love' is in the center of the new sexual revolution

'Cosmétiques du plaisir' is the title of the new trend for elegant erotic-products. Never thought erotic can be elegant?

The packaging Christian Palix' aim was to break away from the traditional visual codes of the packaging for 'erotic-'products. Glamour, luxury and love should be expressed. Therefore he engaged brand designer Philippe Di Méo and his RESO Design agency. The agency has developed creations for prestigious brands, such as Moët&Chandon, Jean-Paul Gaultier fragrances and, more recently, Swarovski or the glamorous Cannes Film Festival.

Philippe Di Méo has visualized the poetry, modernity and free character of YESforLOV with the minimal packaging, a sculptural envelope in gold and white. The logo: freed from all taboos, while remaining elegant, it features a circle of stylised bodies that enlace and intertwine...
