Narciso Rodriguez grew up in New York, where his Cuban father worked as a doctor. After taking styling courses at the Parsons School of Design, he joined Calvin Klein as an assistant stylist. In the mid-90s, he created the wedding dress for his friend Carloyn Besset-Kennedy, placing himself at the same time on the front of the stage. Unfortunately, her friend tragically dies with her husband in an accident. Devastated, Narciso Rodriguez decides to pay tribute to him by dedicating him an ultra feminine essence “For Her” .
Tribute to Carolyn Besset-Kennedy
More than a perfume, “For Her”, which means “For Her”, is a magnificent proof of friendship and affection. “For Her” is the couturier’s most famous and also the most appreciated fragrance. “For Her” expresses the woman in all that she has most touching, her beauty of course, but also her fragility and her strength. “For Her” is an essence that has a strong power of fascination, a very particular attraction, but above all inexplicable. Her charm is irresistible and the “For Her” woman is subtle. “For Her” delivers a message of eternal love, a message of beauty and grace. A final appeal to her friend , Carolyn Kennedy.
For Her and Egyptian musk
What is certain is that the “For Her” fragrance is unlike any other. One of the main reasons is the presence of Egyptian musk. The latter is an oriental olfactory richness very little used. Egyptian musk is a noble and luxurious raw material. Christine Nagel and Francis Kurkdjian created the “For Her” Eau de Toilette. It begins with the warm notes of orange blossom associated with the luminosity of osmanthus. The heart, loaded with musk, is exalted by floral, amber and woody facets. Then, the base delivers a trail that is both sensual and carnal, thanks to the presence of precious woods, vetiver and musks. Architectured, the bottle is refined and also artistic. It mainly plays on a duality.
For Her Fleur Musc made a very remarkable appearance this year, a very promising future awaits it …
“For Her” is the first perfume to have an interior lacquering. The result is perfect and a patent has even been filed by Narciso Rodriguez to protect this technique. The black heart of the bottle contrasts with the pure and transparent edges, thus offering an unexpected elegance.
According to Narciso Rodriguez, “The idea was to create a very special fragrance with an air of mystery that would endure… For Her embodies the ultimate with pure grace”. Before being a perfume, “For Her” is and will remain a tribute of sincere affection to Carolyn Besset-Kenedy, the creator’s friend forever.
