The youngest winning grammy artist in history, Billie Eilish, has just announced in an Instagram post that she is finally releasing her debut fragrance after dreaming of it “a million years ago.”
“i am SO EXCITED to finally share my debut fragrance “Eilish” with you!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!! this is a scent that i’ve been chasing for years and years. this is my favorite smell in the WORLD.🤎🤎🤎 fragrance has always been such an enormous part of my life and existence since i can remember, and it was a dream to create this scent and bring my ideas to life. this has been one of the most exciting things i’ve ever done. i can’t wait for it to be yours so soon!!!!!”
The fragrance, titled ‘Eilish’, is set to be released in November.
‘Eilish’ comes in a sculptural amber-bronze bottle and is priced at $68 (around £49.30)
The bottle represents a miniature bust sculpture with most of the detail sits in the neck and clavicle, where you can see the hills and valleys of tendons. The very top of the bottle cap has a diagonal slant, cutting off the head right above the nose. The perfume is more than just a simple fragrance; it represents her relationship with her favourite body parts, which are the chest and neck of a woman.
Eilish told Vogue in an interview, “I’ve always had an infatuation with back and collarbones and just like, bones and bodies… I didn’t want to have it be a certain body type.
I think that the human body is so beautiful as it is, and we should stop changing all of our bodies and just be appreciative of what they naturally are because they’re so beautiful… I wanted it to feel like you could see anybody in it, and you could be it,” she explains. “I like the idea that you can see the person that you are in love with in it, somehow; I feel like it could match anybody, almost—or you.”
The star told Vogue the fragrance is a “warm, caramel, smooth, velvety thing.”
“My favourite smells are these like, amber-coloured smells, to me, in my brain, I have a really strong nose, and since I was like a little kid, smells are all I think about.”
According to the press release, the fragrance is “a warm, cozy scent that feels like home no matter where you are. [It] opens with sugared petals, accented by juicy mandarin and red berries. The heart of the fragrance unfolds with soft spices, rich cocoa, and creamy vanilla. The scent is anchored by base notes of warm musks, tonka bean, and sleek woods.”
