Some folks have such a distinguishable picture which you can simply have a look at them and know precisely what sort of scents they prefer to put on — at the very least, that is the vibe I get whereas speaking to Billie Eilish throughout a quick chat over Zoom on October 8. We’re assembly to debate her first-ever magnificence product, a perfume aptly named Eilish, which hits digital cabinets in November. A mixture of candy, musky, fruity, and woodsy notes, the debut scent is a direct reflection of the singer’s music and persona: mysterious, sensual, and slightly bit melancholy (however, you recognize, in a cool manner).
Straight out of the bottle, Eilish hits you with an intense wave of sugary vanilla that calms down as soon as settled into the pores and skin. That overwhelming sweetness shortly transforms into one thing indescribably intoxicating as mushy tonka bean, cocoa, musk, and berries make their strategy to the floor. One of the simplest ways I might describe it’s the sort of perfume you’d put on beneath the coziest cashmere sweater whereas staring out the window of a dimly lit espresso store on a wet night. Or like sleeping in late on creamy silk sheets. Or an attractive marshmallow — the precise sort of scent I had anticipated from Eilish.
The perfume, the singer says, is solely a creation of her personal necessity as a result of she desperately needed to put on one thing that did not exist… but. “I had the concept [to create a fragrance] million years in the past. I’ve all the time needed to do that,” Eilish tells Attract. “I used to be chasing this one scent that I had in my head of vanilla, amber, musk, cocoa, rose, and wooden.”
This olfactory thought was simply as a lot concerning the feeling it might evoke because it was the way it really smells. Impressed by human our bodies, Eilish goals to create a way of intimacy between the individual carrying it and everybody who can odor it on them. “I’ve all the time been infatuated by necks and collarbones and again muscle groups and shoulders and armpits. I’ve all the time thought they had been actually stunning,” she elaborates. “I needed to intensify that magnificence with out making it about [sexualizing bodies].”
