Singer Shakira is launching her second perfume following on her debut fragrance S by Shakira in 2010. The new fragrance is called S by Shakira Eau Florale. It is described as a "floral gustative musk" scent. The artist said,
"I wanted to find a way to express the feeling of pure happiness through the medium of fragrance."
Developed with fragrance company Puig, it was co-created with perfumer Elizabeth Vidal of the Puig Perfumery Center in collaboration with IFF. The brand offers their characterization of the perfume saying that it is a,
"...floral explosion which lingers sensually on the skin, an expression of youthful joy, optimism and vitality. Discover a new floral freshness full of positive vibrations and notes of pure happiness. A fragrance that introduces us to a new sensuality through an exploration of Shakira's most feminine and delicate side."
Three accords were developed with the singer: floral freshness, notes of happiness, skin-musk sensation. The perfume opens on a top note of green citrus freshness which features notes of bergamot and cassis. The heart is floral and gourmand with heliotrope, jasmine, blackberry, raspberry, blueberry. The base notes are fresh vanilla and a high content in musk creating a modern, contemporary accord.
