Taking ingredients more typical of masculine fragrances and enveloping them with nurturing white florals, Donna Karan and perfumer Anne Flipo recently collaborated on an interesting new blend of Haitian vetiver & Sandalwood wrapped in feminine orange flower. "I wanted to create a fragrance that would express the many facets of a woman," explains Flipo. "A celebration of their strength, passion, patience and tenderness." Prize-winning architect Zaha Hadid designed the flacon as an examination of "sensuality and infinity", itself wrapped up in an organic design that "gently balances upon itself."
The campaign was shot by Inez and Vinoodh and features three fab femmes - one in her 20s (Karolina Kurkova), one in her 30s (Liya Kebede) & one in her 40s (Christy Turlington Burns) - chosen in part because of their individual commitments to women's causes & children's welfare...& in part for the obvious: they're all three of them ridiculously good looking.
