“I wanted to create something that reflected the house, but something fresh and new,” Rodriguez told WWD. For Her, made its debut in fall 2003, and an eau de parfum version was launched in fall 2004. His sole men’s scent, For Him, was launched in 2007.
“Essence is very sexy but has that crisp, clean, pure quality of sunlight,” continued Rodriguez. “It’s a bit of a collage — the iris, rose and amber that I love — and how you can layer these things over the musk and create that feeling of joy. It’s about a different facet of a woman. As there is day, there is night,” he said, referring to the difference between the two brands. “This is a clean take on that same girl.”
The collection consists of eaux de parfum in two sizes, 1.6 oz. for $78 and 3.3 oz. for $100; as well as a 6.7 oz. body lotion, $48; a 6.7 oz. shower gel, $40, and a 3.3 oz. deodorant spray, $33.
