New Zealand fashion designer Karen Walker has launched a debut trio of perfumes called A, B and C eaux de parfum to express the fact that eveything in life is possible...
Walker explains that,
"We wanted to make a trio with an effortless expression of optimism. For us, A, B, C is the first thing that rolls off the tongue when we think about anything being possible," Walker explains. "It's about stimulating creativity. We wanted the names to describe the effect - a sense of inspiration and stimulation - rather than the ingredients."
A and B were composed by perfumer Dorothée Piot of Robertet (formerly of Charabot) while C is signed by perfumer Emilie Bouge of Charabot. A fourth fragrance by a third nose is said to be in the works.
A is about happiness featuring notes of cassis, mint, grapefruit and rose. B is about femininity with notes of bergamot, white rose, vanilla and iris. C is a bouquet of Walker's favorite blooms with gardenia, magnolia resting on sandalwood.
A is the happiness potion. It's sparkly, bright, herbal and fresh. It's a sunny garden bursting with flowers.
B is feminine, lush and delicious, a warm, balmy breeze after the heat of the day.
C is opulent and generous. It's the most sensuous of the trio, containing Walker's favourite flowers.
Prices: $130 and $175 for 50 ml and 100 ml respectively.
