For the last few years, Vogue Nippon fashion director Anna Dello Russo has been the star of many a street style blog thanks to her extravagant ensembles and unambiguous love of fashion. Now, she is sharing her personal brand of opulence with the world via a new eponymous fragrance that has been billed as “part cult accessory, part enchanting fragrance, part decadent indulgence—like freshly baked cookies on Christmas day.” So, what does Christmas day smell like? According to Anna Dello Russo, it is a sweet mash-up of vanilla and almond that calls to mind the childhood memory of warm cookies coming from the kitchen.
But the best part about the new fragrance is not the aroma. It is the bottle. The fragrance comes in an ornate gold slipper-shaped bottle evocative of the Cinderella fairytale. Most importantly, it fits in your clutch and, once you have finished with the fragrance, the “shiny shoe can be hung as a memento on the Christmas tree.” Don’t let its shimmering silhouette fool you, though—this fragrance comes with a warning: “This object isn’t a traditional perfume bottle and must be handled with extreme care for it is extremely fragile. It could easily break into sharp fragments. Keep out of reach of children.”
Anna Dello Russo’s fragrance is available exclusively at Yoox.com for $25.
