L’Wren Scott Launches Her First Fragrance


It’s clear that L’Wren Scott is no slacker! Between dressing and touring with the Rolling Stones and crafting Angelina Jolie’s bridal gown, the designer is also gearing up to release her first perfume. A scent savant for years, blending her own essential oils since she first fell in love with Guerlain’s Apres l’Ondée with friends buying her potions straight from her purse! The sensuality of her dresses translated straight to fragrance with sultry notes. Absinthe, star anise, coriander, mandarin, and marigold open the scent while tuberose, jasmine, geranium, curry, and clove buds sit at the heart. The base is built on Brazilian patchouli, musk, leather, amber, and moss. Inspired by the spicy scents in Mumbai, Scott told Women’s Wear Daily that the memories of the exotic location helped her create her fragrance philosophy that the scent shouldn’t overpower. “I play to the sensual and sexy side,” she told the publication. “I don’t think they would wear you, just enhance who you are.”

L’Wren Scott is available exclusively at Barneys New York and Barneys.com for $195.
