Narciso Rodriguez will launch Essence, a new fragrance for women, this coming March. Rodriguez says Essence is "very sexy but has that crisp, clean, pure quality of sunlight”, and is a daytime scent for the woman who wears Narciso Rodriguez For Her at night.
Essence is a floral powdery musk and was developed by perfumer Alberto Morillas; the notes include iris, rose, benzoin and musk notes.
Narciso Rodriguez Essence will be available in 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum and in matching body products. (via wwd, where you can see a picture of the bottle on today's cover)
Update: more on the upcoming Narciso Rodriguez Essence, from the press release:
This spring, world-renowned American fashion designer Narciso Rodriguez reveals his latest signature fragrance called 'essence', an olfactory homage to the duality of a woman's nature - the intense and the ethereal, the simple and the complex. [...]
As the designer's olfactive signature, musc lives at the heart of 'essence' with a renewed perception and a new vitality. Internationally celebrated perfumer Alberto Morillas magically enhanced the modern heart of musc with radiant notes of rose petals, powdery notes of iris and hints of amber resulting in a floral, powdery musc fragrance.
Narciso Rodriguez Essence will launch exclusively at Saks in mid-March. (via prnewswire)
