When I told you about the Halle Berry scent, you expected something sweet and floral. Well, today comes more news about the forthcoming fragrance, Halle by Halle Berry, due out in March. The scent, a woody oriental, and the bottle, meant to evoke the beach, were two years in the making. Berry tells WWD, "[Before my fragrance] I was mixing other brands that shall remain nameless to make my own scent with fig and mimosa,” she said. “With Halle, I added olibanum, which is an African root, which brings spice to the fragrance, and sandalwood, which smooths everything out and makes it yummy. It’s very sensual, very natural, very much reflective of the outdoors.”
