Style Icon, Creative Director and TV Star, Nicole Richie is excited to add her first-ever fragrance to an already impressive list of accomplishments. Nicole, the fragrance, was developed in collaboration with TPR Holdings LLC and marks the Fashion Star mentor’s entry into the beauty category. To celebrate the launch, Nicole will unveil her fragrance at Macy’s Glendale on August 29th and Nordstrom at the Grove on September 20th, 2012.
Inspired by Richie’s childhood memories, the eponymous fragrance is reminiscent of the uniquely layered scent her mother would wear—a distinct combination of exotic oils and fragrant lotions. “I knew exactly what I wanted to do because my mom would combine different oils and lotions, and the blend of scents became very special to me,” said Richie. “Nicole blends the smells of my childhood memories with the aromas of the present.”
Richie worked closely with esteemed fragrance nose, Steve DeMercado to create the soulful scent, which celebrates the everyday moments in life. A fragrance for every woman and any occasion, Nicole embodies Richie’s style, spirit and wide breadth of creative talents.
The Inspiration: “Nicole was inspired by the scents of my childhood. It’s very much a reflection of my individual style—a spiritual balance of femininity and bohemian. It’s the notion that fashion can be easy, comfortable and offer juxtaposition between casual and luxury.” – Nicole Richie
The Fragrance: “From bottle design to packaging to the fragrance itself, all of the elements work synergistically. The scent is unique and beautiful, classic yet modern. Nicole is a feminine fragrance with a touch of sensuality. It’s the perfect blend of Nicole’s past and present.” – Steve DeMercado
The Packaging: Richie worked closely with luxury design expert Dale Brandon Kan, to create a design that draws from her personal style and bohemian flair. Elements of art nouveau and vintage design are incorporated. The combination of these distinct styles is complimentary and unexpected and very much an extension of Nicole’s artistic vision.
