Collection: Donna Karan
The bottle for Donna Karan’s first, signature fragrance was designed by her sculptor husband, Stephan Weiss, to echo the curve of a woman’s back. Donna wanted ‘a fragrance to seduce the senses’, and called it Cashmere Mist. Women everywhere wanted to cocoon themselves in this sheer, sensuous floral, which captured the touch-me sensuality of cashmere in a bottle. Her brief: it should smell like ‘Casablanca lilies, red suede – and the back of Stephan’s neck…’ And because with Donna it’s all about the lifestyle, products to layer soon made their way onto our bathroom shelves: Body Lotion, Deodorant and more, veiling women’s skin in notes of orchid flower, bergamot, lily of the valley, amber and vanilla.
