Latest New York fragrance arrives in town

New York fashion designer Narciso Rodriguez has designed gowns for famous faces, like Michele Obama and Carolyn Bessette, the wife of John Kennedy Jr.

And now everyday women have a chance to wear the designer’s latest fragrance — officially launched on the Island today.

AS Cooper & Sons will be unveiling the new scent, Narciso Rodriguez L'eau For Her, at a promotion event this evening from 4pm until 9pm.

Two representatives from the brand will be on Island for the launch and are available to answer questions on the new fragrance. A range of Narciso Rodriguez gifts sets, fragrances for men and women, lotions and shower gels will also be showcased in the cosmetics department at tonight’s launch.

Katie Dunmore, AS Cooper & Sons cosmetics manager/assistant buyer, said the store was “always trying to be on the front foot with fashion and fragrance” and therefore didn’t hesitate to stock the new version of the Eau de Toilette.

She said the brand’s original fragrance “has been very successful with the young and trendy demographic”, since launching in 2003. The newer version is said to be “even better”.

“This fragrance is very wearable, playful and appropriate for every woman,” Ms Dunmore explained. “The eau de toilette is the most sillage-worthy, meaning it leaves a scented trail when you wear it.

“The woman who wears ‘Narciso Rodriguez L'eau for her’ is confident, young and vibrant.”

The fragrance has “soft, yet bursting” floral notes consisting of Jasmine, Cyclamen and Sparkling Pink Peony. Beneath the top notes, there are hints of amber and tactile wood, Ms Dunmore said.

Narciso Rodriguez is considered one of the foremost American designers of the past two decades.

He received international acclaim in 1996, when he designed the wedding dress for Carolyn Bessette, when she married John Kennedy Jr.

The designer made headlines again on November 4, 2008, when Michelle Obama chose to wear a dress from his Spring 2009 collection, when her husband Barack Obama became the first African American President of the United States.

These days Mr Rodriguez creates women’s ready to wear collections out of his fashion house, based in New York City.

AS Cooper & Sons will be the exclusive providers of Narciso Rodriguez L'eau on the Island. Ms Dunmore said the store was looking forward to unveiling other exciting brands this year.

“We aim to reach every customer base in Bermuda and ensure that we are providing the best quality service and most inspiring products that are currently on the market,” she said.

“We have many exciting new launches coming up and we expect that consumers alike will not be disappointed with the brands that we will be stocking in our store.”
