    Default Harajuku Lovers Fragrance by Gwen Stefani



    Launching September 1, 2008 I am sure this will be on every fashionistas Christmas list, mine included!

    Seldom has the term "doll-like" been so applicable as in the case of Gwen Stefani's September fragrance launch.

    That's when Stefani will introduce her new Harajuku Lovers collection. For the project, Stefani created dolls based on herself and her four real-life backup singers, Love, Angel, Music and Baby — and turned them into scent bottles.

    "I didn't think this project would actually come to life," Stefani admitted to WWD. "The idea that Coty would let me do five different fragrances for Harajuku Lovers was a fantasy. [But] it really had to be five, because that's what the world is. Each girl has her own personality and sense of style. We're all saying something different with unique personalities."

    Stefani has long been fascinated by the whimsical style of girls in Tokyo's Harajuku area — so much so that they have inspired her music, a streetwear apparel line, handbags and watches, to name a few.

    That whimsy is reflected in the Harajuku Lovers bottles, which consist of two pieces: a glass base that holds the juice and hides the spray top, and a personalized doll that lifts off the base. Each doll is meticulously crafted, with a different mold and hand-applied detailing, down to the bows on Lil' Angel's dreadlocks. The outer box gives each doll's backstory.

    The project itself came together quickly, said Stefani. "So much had been done already with creating these girls — dreaming up the entire world while I was working on the first solo album, living the fantasy on tour — the actual fragrance selection wasn't that hard," said Stefani. "I was just so inspired that it came together really fast. It was a little bit easier than when I was creating the L.A.M.B. fragrance. This time it wasn't just about me, so there was a little more freedom. And when you get to do five different things, you get to go in five different directions. You get a lot more space to choose."

    The scents are all inspired by Stefani's views of her backup singers. Love is described as "sweet, caring, free-spirited and always off in her own little world." Lil' Angel is "constantly looking out for others," but is no saint. Music is "always looking to make someone laugh" and is "charismatic." Baby is "enticing in her frilly innocence." (And, naturally, G is the leader of the pack.)
    From WWD.com

    Music — a floral with notes of clementine, pear, jasmine, sweet pea, honeysuckle, vanilla and musk

    Baby — a powder musk with freesia, bergamot, rose, jasmine, musk, heliotrope, vanilla and violet

    ^^ No problem!
    I adore the bottle but I will have to smell them to see which one I want. Lil' Angel, G, and Music sound like scents that I would like. I am more of a sweet, fruit, and spice kind of girl.

    These are out at Nordstrom now, I bought G and Little Angel today. They are so beautiful. The G fragrance is incredible, I don't usually wear fragrance but it's unbelievably fruity and delicious, I'm going to wear it every day. The bottles are so cute, too!
