Donna Karan releases 'Woman' fragrance
Donna Karan is releasing a new fragrance come August in the U.S. and hitting Harrod's later this fall. The perfume will feature a core of sandalwood and Haitian vetiver, the mix also includes orange flower. It is called Woman and the campaign sounds pretty exciting.
It will be shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, is intended to "celebrate the accomplished yet sensual side of multifaceted women," Carol Russo of Aramis and Designer Fragrances and BeautyBank told WWD. Christy Turlington Burns, Karolina Kurkvova and Liya Kebede will star in the ad to run in September fashion, beauty and lifestyle magazines.
The bottle is designed to resemble a free-form sculpture, with a curving shape that harmonizes with Karan's 1994 Cashmere Mist fragrance, which was a best seller. Her late husband Stephan Weiss created that bottle, so this one is also a bit of an homage to everything he did for her business.
"There is a man in every woman," Karan somewhat cryptically told WWD. "Woman -- a woman and a man all coming together for me -- that is the power of a woman."
The collection includes eaux de parfum in two sizes, 1.7 oz. and 3.4 oz. as well as a body lotion and a body cleansing lotion.
