Bunch o’ limited edition collector bottles (& some other stuff) 2017, part 9

More limited edition collector fragrance bottles, with the usual disclaimers: in most of these cases, the juice is unchanged, just the bottle is “special” (or not, as the case may be), and some of these may not be available in the US. Today’s post includes special edition bottles from Jo Malone and Carolina Herrera, plus the summer 2017 version of Paul Smith Rose and the new Eau de Toilette version of Yves Saint Laurent Mon Paris.

Jo Malone Poptastic

From Jo Malone, the Poptastic collection, with Tuberose Angelica Cologne Intense (£78) and Orange Blossom Cologne (£60), both in 50 ml. The “paint-splattered bottles were designed by Poppy [Delevingne] during a day spent messing around with inks and oils at the Jo Malone London Townhouse”, and you can find them at Selfridges in the UK…

Carolina Herrera Good Girl ~ fragrance review

Carolina Herrera Good Girl

It has been the top-selling fragrance among multiple countries for three consecutive months. The launch is also their largest of it’s [sic] kind for the United States in 20 years. The initial sales projection for the fragrance has since been shattered, now corrected to reflect roughly $200 million in its first year.1

***

[Jose Manuel] Albesa [of Puig] said Good Girl is “breaking historical records.” The eau de parfum has doubled both sell-in and sell-out objectives in all markets and has been top selling female fragrance in several countries for three consecutive months, he added.

It’s unclear whether the success is due to the scent’s atypical packaging (it’s housed in a teetering stiletto bottle); a racier than usual marketing and advertising campaign with a tag line of “It’s So Good to Be Bad”; the juice itself (jasmine is a key accord, like many of the house’s fragrances that came before it), or a combination of the three — but it’s working.2
