scent of a woman: lubov azria on bcbg's haute new fragrance


From cutting-edge runway looks to feminine party dresses, BCBGMAXAZRIA creates gorgeous clothes and accessories for women from all walks of life. Earlier this fall, the fashion house made its first foray into fragrance with a chic signature scent. To find out more about the fragrance, paper + cloth turned to BCBGMAXAZRIA chief creative office Lubov Azria. In the blog's first guest post, Lubov breaks down the scent's intoxicating elements and curates some truly chic looks that embody its essence:

When developing the BCBGMAXAZRIA fragrance, the goal was to create something that would truly embody the spirit of the BCBGMAXAZRIA woman. Our woman is both trendsetting and timeless. She does it all, and the BCBGMAXAZRIA fragrance embodies that appeal, making it perfect for every woman. We worked with rare ingredients, such as the orris flower and lily of the valley from the south of France, to achieve a sophisticated yet flirty fragrance jewel.
