Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s Garden Grows With Her First Scent
The mega model linked up once again with Mark & Spencer for a fresh and mysterious fragrance, almost as a follow up to her line of lingerie that will hit shelves across the pond on January 28. Aptly called Rosie for Autograph, Huntington-Whiteley traveled to New York, London, and Grasse to perfect the formula, which was modeled after a summer morning in the British countryside. She even shot the campaign in her home county of Devon. “Shooting the campaign where I grew up was a natural choice, I felt it gave the perfect backdrop and really captured the delicate, truly beautiful sentiment I wanted for my fragrance,” she told The Telegraph. “It was very important to me when creating the fragrance that every aspect be close to my heart.”
As such, the British beauty would be remiss not to include a rose note, putting a centifolia rose at the heart of the scent. “As with my lingerie collection, I was drawn to the elegance and simplicity of the centifolia rose used in the fragrance,” she explained. “A rare, vintage style flower, it really encapsulates what this fragrance is about to me – a fresh yet mysterious scent, which feels luxurious and sexy.” To amplify the fragrance’s sensuality, Huntington-Whiteley added pepper, lemon, vanilla, and sandalwood notes – making it a must for Valentine’s Day.
