Nicole Richie’s latest project? Foraying into beauty: she’s debuting her first fragrance, Nicole by Nicole Richie, in September, WWD reports.
The scent—which has hints of vanilla, amber, and cashmere woods—was inspired by the layered oils and lotions her mother wore when Richie was a child. “I have a very traditional Southern mom—you never left the house without lotion,” she told WWD. “Over her lotion went oil and perfume—she was very put together from head to toe. It wasn’t just a one-dimensional smell— there were many different layers.”
The fragrance comes housed in an Art Deco-inspired bottle that Richie created with designer Dale Brandon Kan. “I wanted it to represent different layers of a woman,” Richie explained. “We’re in an interesting time right now where women aren’t just one thing—there are many different parts to a woman. So I wanted to create a very intricate bottle that was still elegant, but not so in-your-face girly at the same time.”
Nicole by Nicole Richie will be sold in two Eau de parfum sizes, for $55 or $69, and will also come in a body lotion for $35 and a bath and shower gel for $28, all to be found in Macy’s, Nordstrom, and Dillard’s.
Now that Richie’s in the beauty category, hair may be next. “I’m not great with makeup, so it wouldn’t make sense for me to do a makeup line at the moment, but hair is something where I know the world very well, and so I probably will be focusing on that sometime soon,” she said.
