Designer Nicole Miller wanted to develop a perfume with Parlux that would be "delicious" yet also cover the range of "energy and emotion that are constants in the life of the woman who wears Nicole Miller." The project was entrusted to perfumer Caroline Sabas of Givaudan who designed a "modern chypre".
"I don't like most perfumes," said the designer from her Seventh Avenue showroom. "I find them too florally or too old. My clothes don't age people so I wanted that same kind of fragrance that was young and modern."
Frenzy opens on cassis sorbet, bright orange and clean aldehydes; the heart rests on yellow gardenia, exotic ylang-ylang, orange flower and violet leaf; the drydown features black patchouli, oakmoss, white cedarwood and amber.
"Frenzy will be available in two eau de parfum sizes -- a 1.7 oz. for $65 and a 3.4 oz. for $95 -- as well as a 6.7-oz. soufflé shower cream for $35, a 6.7 oz. body lotion for $45 and the same size body cream for $60."
