In 2003, designer Narciso Rodriguez successfully launched his gorgeous first fragrance collection, For Her Eau de Toilette ($40 to $87), a seductive, great-for-evening kind of scent. And this Spring, Rodriguez is about to get a little more demure with Essence Eaux de Parfum Collection ($33 to $100), a new fragrance line that also will include a body lotion, shower gel, and deodorant spray.
“Essence is very sexy but has that crisp, clean, pure quality of sunlight,” Rodriguez told WWD. This sunny floral, powdery musk will contain notes of rose, iris powder, benzoin balm, and of course, musk — his signature touch. “I love [musk] so much for its beautiful qualities, its rawness and its sensuality,” said Rodriguez.
Speaking of that sensuality, the rounded and mirrorlike bottle is futuristic looking with an intriguing, "I want to touch that" quality. Want to try out some Essence? Look for Rodriguez's creation in the US on March 1 (with a global introduction in April), where it's set to launch for a seven-month exclusive at Saks Fifth Avenue.
