Every girl (not so secretly) dreams about wearing a long, whimsical princess gown from the Fashion Week runway. Christian Siriano understands his ladies, because when he designed his premiere fragrance (out today!), he was inspired by an ultraromantic blue tulle dress from his Spring 2013 collection. Thus the name of the scent, Silhouette, was born.
And just like that famous layered tulle dress (pictured below), the fragrance has layers of notes; cassis, wet greens, and purple berries were inspired by the fabrics in Siriano's dreamy designs. Spritz the eau de toilette, and you'll be greeted with feminine jasmine petals, rose, and freesia, juxtaposed by more masculine woods and moss. The scent was infused in the air at Siriano's fabulous launch party last night at his pop-up shop, The Silhouette Shoppe (402 West 13th St. in NYC, open Sept. 4 through 21), where the fragrance will be sold in addition to online at christiansirianofragrances.com. The Silhouette range includes a 100 ml Eau de Parfum Spray ($92), a 50 ml Eau de Parfum Spray ($68), a 200 ml Body Lotion ($40), a 200 ml Shower Gel ($35), a 6 ml Rollerball ($22), and a limited edition Eau de Parfum Candle ($45).
At this chichi event, we rubbed elbows with Marisa Tomei, Alexa Chung, and Mena Suvari before we caught up with the man of the hour himself as well as his muse, Coco Rocha (who stars in the Silhouette campaign). Read on for exclusive quotes from Siriano and Rocha about what just may be the most fashionable fragrance of them all.
