A woman has many sides to her, and that’s just what Agent Provocateur envisioned for its eighth scent, Fatale. Creative director Sarah Shotton explains: “We [were inspired by] a woman like Kim Basinger in [the film] 9 ½ Weeks. She’s really girly and sexy yet very soft. She’s also enticing, but with a bit of an edge.” The scent, which is described as an oriental floral, is bound to be a must-have for the multi-faceted woman. [WWD
