Oscar de la Renta has launched Essential Luxuries, a collection of six scents evoking the worldly life of one of fashion’s most gracious bon vivants.
Santo Domingo is a citrusy, spicy tabac fragrance inspired by the Dominican Republic, Mr. de la Renta’s birthplace.
Granada refers to his life in Spain, where he moved in his youth to study painting and became an apprentice to Cristobal Balenciaga. The scent is an homage to the lush gardens of the Alhambra.
Oriental Lace alludes to the opulent textures in his most celebrated runway collections.
Mi Corazon is a white floral bouquet associated with his devotion to family. He created it for his daughter Eliza Bolen.
Sargasso is a watery, green scent channeling the air and vegetation where the Sargasso Sea touches the shores of Punta Cana.
Coralina is named for an opalescent, ginger-colored stone indigenous to the Dominican Republic. He used the stone to unify many of his habitats and signature spaces. Now it stands for the refinement and femininity of the Oscar woman.
