California-based indie line En Voyage has launched Frida, a new unisex tuberose fragrance inspired by Frida Kahlo.
This perfume celebrates the life of Frida Kahlo; the woman and artist, her suffering, her Mexican heritage and her love of nature.
Frida was feminine, fearless and a revolutionary; she cross dressed, smoked cigars, and has been a part of pop culture for over 50 years. A world-travelled sophisticate who had love affairs with both men and women, Frida remained happiest at Casa Azul, her traditional family home.
Tuberose, a flower that the Aztecs called the Boneflower, is an important note in this perfume as an homage to Frida’s brutal calamities and artistic transformation. Other notes include the hibiscus that she wore in her hair as well as the tropical blossoms and plants of Frida’s garden. The fragrance also devotes close attention to other details of Frida’s life, such as the heat of her native Mexico City, the smells of her cigarettes and her heavy hair.
Additional note include apricot, watermelon, peach, lemon, greenery, cactus flower, champaca, ylang ylang, gardenia, jasmine, light woods, sugar, oak moss, aldehydes, myrrh, frankincense, copal, tobacco, green pepper, animalic notes, musk and amber.
En Voyage Perfumes Frida is available in 15 ($75) and 30 ($95) ml Eau de Parfum and can be ordered now at the En Voyage website.
