sparkling twilight orchid, an exotic floral scent that can only be
captured at nightfall. Sparkling citrus notes and lady apple give
it a sunny feel, while hints of English ivy add woody warmth.
The white lacquer bottle is a bright, fresh take on the original,
splashed with vivid watercolor blooms and accented with the
iconic handcrafted Victoria bow, reinvented for spring in modern,
frosted white. The fragrance collection includes an eau de parfum,

In other updates, to celebrate their mother Natalie Wood,
Natasha Gregson Wagner and Courtney Wagner have created a
fragrance inspired by a scent the actress wore for most of her life.
The perfume was developed by the luxury private label and packaging expert Crafting Beauty and French fragrance house Mane.
The story started years ago, when child-actress Natalie
Wood met movie legend Barbara Stanwyck while filming the
movie“The Bride Wore Boots.” She immediately fell in love with
Stanwyck’s perfume, and the actress generously gave Natalie a
bottle as a gift. From that day on, Natalie Wood always wore the
perfume, which became her signature scent. The 50ml bottle is
a little curved cube featuring a heavy base, and topped with a
transparent“diamond” cap. The final personal touch is the reproduction of Natalie Wood’s actual signature on the bottle.
The fragrance, created by Claude Dir, master perfumer at
Mane, is made of pure distilled essential oils and high-quality
raw ingredients. The top notes are a heady blend of freesia, neroli,
bigarade zest and rose. The heart notes are composed of lush gardenia, wrapped with orange flower, narcissus, jasmine and hyacinth. The base notes include fresh vanilla harmonies, soft woods
and sheer musk.
Marketers are thinking outside the box this season with one-off
approaches to fine fragrance.
“Artisanal fragrances are more intriguing than ever. One-of-kind scents are nothing new—hand made perfumes have been
trending in major cities for several years—but now retailers are
inviting shoppers in for a first-hand, one-of-a-kind experience,”
said ten Brink of Scentbird.
