Perfumes are sensuous, invisible accessories that add the finishing touch to an outfit. Just as having great style is more than having a wardrobe full of clothes, so having a signature scent is more than putting on a perfume diligently everyday. As Christian Dior once pointed out, “A woman’s perfume tells more about her than her handwriting.”
For as long as I can remember, my mother had used a small spritz of Escape by Calvin Klein as the finale of her makeup routine. She liked the fruity, floral notes of mandarin, apricot, and ylang ylang, mixed with a base of vanilla and sandalwood – a crisp, refreshing scent that was welcoming but not overwhelming and lingered throughout the day. She was such an adherent to the perfume that she bought a bottle whenever she travelled. Unfortunately, it was discontinued several years ago and became increasingly harder to find in stores. It felt like the end of an era when she settled for Chanel N°5 as a replacement because I had grown so accustomed to her old signature scent, which captured her daydreaming personality.
The crowning moment of womanhood is choosing a signature scent that embodies who you are and who you want to be. After some years of sampling fragrances in department stores and looking at their various campaigns, I have finally found my signature scent: Good Girl by Carolina Herrera.
Perfume is an accessory. As with Couture, creating a scent is a long and thoughtful process. GOOD GIRL’s fragrance is inspired by Carolina Herrera’s unique vision of the modern woman: audacious, sexy, elegant and enigmatic. Forever pushing and crossing the limits.
Powerful, playful and a lady on the edge, the GOOD GIRL is never afraid to be herself, challenging the expectations of everyone she meets. Her magnetic sensuality captivates men and women alike as she knows exactly where and when to reveal her true self.
Like the city of New York itself, GOOD GIRL is bold, powerful and daring. In a town where everything is possible, GOOD GIRL empowers women to be their total self and to make the city their own.
The complex duality of modern femininity is captured in this sophisticated yet multifaceted women’s perfume […] with the luminous facet of tuberose and best quality Sambac Jasmine contrasted with the dangerously addictive notes of roasted tonka beans and Cocoa.
I like that the scent is not overwhelming but lasts throughout the day and transitions subtly from dawn to dusk, from sweet and fruity to spicy and floral – perfect for a woman on the go.
Heels are the ultimate symbol of power, igniting passions with their extreme sensuality. Completing that ‘femme fatale’ look, the GOOD GIRL bottle defies the laws of earthly attraction, combining haute couture aesthetics with technical expertise. If you give a girl the right shoe, she can conquer the world.
The beautiful bottle can really add flair and personality when displayed on your vanity or night stand.
Inspired by Herrera de Baez, embodied by Karlie Kloss and immortalized by Mario Testino, GOOD GIRL is showing the world what the power of femininity looks like, smells like, feels like… In this campaign, Testino brings a third dimension to the concept of duality by casting a light on the mystery of woman and putting her true self on display.
