Of course, it wouldn't be a Jessica-backed company without some beauty products thrown into the mix. Jessica has launched five fragrances since 2008, with Vintage Bloom eau de parfum ($49-$65) being the most recent. The sheer floral contains notes of lemon, Caipirinha lime zest, peony, raspberry blossom, sandalwood, and musk. "Creating Vintage Bloom came about in a time in my life when everything was feeling very organic and new," Jessica says. "Everything felt like a beginning, and that's how this scent smells to me." See what else the new mom had to say about developing the perfume, as well as a surprising fact about her past, when you read more.
