Ever wonder what designers prefer when it comes to fragrances? We discovered three new scents that were conceptualized by designers Mary Katrantzou, Jimmy Choo, and Kate Spade. Now, you can have matching scents with your designer wear, because why not?

Bulgari X Mary Katrantzou
Roman jeweller worked with London-based Greek fashion designer Mary Katrantzou with via its Omnia Capsule Collection by Mary Katrantzou. With Katrantzou’s trademark use of colorful kaleidoscope picks, she worked with master perfumer Alberto Morillas in bringing joy to this special collection.
It’s a colorful bouquet of positivity with its pick of the most vibrant flowers in her picks of mandarin, gardenia accord (the designer’s favorite flower) with notes of fig leaf. It also had blond wood accord and musk accord. “For this collaboration, I re-imagined the Omnia bottle as a sculptural vase holding a bouquet of flowers and colours that represent the notes Alberto Morillas used to create together this universe of optimism. The combination of gardenia and the luminous notes of mandarin and orange blossom, resulted in an uplifting scent that settles like a memory into your soul,” says Katrantzou.

Jimmy Choo
Playful and confident, this is what comes to mind when one thinks of the Jimmy Choo woman. Known for making a grand entrance at red carpet events, the woman who wears Jimmy Choo is daring, fun, and glamorous. Aptly named “I Want Choo,” this new scent is a combination of powerful florals and sparkling fruits of mandarin, peach, red spider lily, vanilla, jasmine zambac, and benzoin. Encased in a potion-shape like bottle with shimmer gold cap and JC monogram logo. The feminine peach tint of the fragrance adds a touch of prettiness with every spritz.

Kate Spade
Fun, feminine, and colorful—these are what comes to mind when one thinks of the Kate Spade woman. And their newest scent Kate Spade New York was launched with actress and dancer Maddie Ziegler who can be seen dancing with friends on the city streets. And the scent evokes vibrance and positivity. Perfumer Marie Salamagne took inspiration from the carefree nature of wild strawberries, “My objective was to capture the unique scent of this lush and extremely elegant red fruit to feature joyful femininity, sublimated by gorgeous rose essence, the queen of flowers.”
Take a whiff of its scent mixed with bergamot, strawberry, roses, freesia, ambroxan, and cahmeran; and get mesmerized with how fun this fruity floral fragrance is. Fall in love even more with this ultra-girly bottle in pretty shades of pink.
