The Scent of a Woman

Fraulein Jill Sander, the creator of the mega expensive fashion label, decided that she’d had it with the co work with Prada and dramatically walked out from them in November last year. The German designer has been commonly associated with her clean-cut suits and subtle colours, mostly loved by the well-off, middle aged woman. The collections have also been described as “..the collections of Jil Sander avoid loud colours, are spartan in print, and are economical [read boring] in the use of accessories…”

Since the split from Prada, it seems that Jill Sander has been very busy on some new scents that will be aimed for a much younger age group. Apparently we’re in for a sporty concept of flashy colours due to be launched in April - an orange version for the men and a pink one for the ladies (what the actual scent is like, seems of no relevance). Hmm, sounds like a perfectly good reason not to try this perfume...

Haha. Nowadays, the scent of the perfume doesn't seem to be as important as the bottle, packaging and the advertising. But the fashion & beauty industry is a commercial one after all...

Jil Sander caters to a minimalist aesthetic. While the phrase IS often code for boring, matronly, fuddy-duddy, her spring 2004 collection was lovely, and no one handles chiffon the way she does. Save Allesandro and Alberta.

"Nowadays, the scent of the perfume doesn't seem to be as important as the bottle, packaging and the advertising." Someone should have given J. Lo that tip before she released her fragrance in a granny-got-this-at-CVS bottle.

Du är en klok kvinna så jag lyder ditt råd. Jil Sander har alltid varit tråkigt, och detta låter bara än mer in the dark, så jag låter helt enkelt bli att intresseras. =)
