Hi,

I'm looking for the typeface used in the commercials for the parfum 'hypnôse' of Lancôme...

does anyone have an idea?

many many thanks in advance,

best, matthijs

This looks like an extra-fine display weight of Minion. Is there a custom version running around that we don't know about?

I think it has a stroke removed from it, seen up close it is actually less than fine.

thanks marco&tim!...

It does look like a very very thin minion... so this basically means a custom-job?

I really like this super-super fine details... anyone a tip of typefaces, which come close to this design?

thanks,

m.
