Establishing a globally-recognized image, Carolina Herrera has resided at the helm of her eponymous label for over three and a half decades, proving with each new season that effortless elegance paired with modern refinement is always relevant. With the encouragement and endorsement of legendary Vogue editor Diana Vreeland, Carolina Herrera presented her first collection of women’s ready-to-wear at New York’s Metropolitan Club in 1981. The collection was hailed as a success and embraced by luxury retailers and fashion press alike. From there, her fashion house was born with the Carolina Herrera New York label.
When Carolina Herrera decided to create her first fragrance, “the invisible accessory,” as she memorably put it, she turned to Puig. Carolina Herrera Eau de Parfum, a jasmine-tuberose accord that ideally mirrored the designer’s aesthetic, was released in 1988. It was a great success, the first of many for Puig and Carolina Herrera.
