The fragrance was inspired by the ambition and glamour of Hollywood. (Think wide-eyed starlet waiting to be discovered.) And much to our joy, the scent actually captures the fresh, young, and enthusiastic feeling of a charasmatic, charming woman. It's floral and sweet yet spicy and exciting. It opens with zesty ginger and lush Mandarin as well as a touch of red currant. Then it blends to a more feminine, floral scent of pink peony, light wisteria, and potent orange flower. With a musky, wood base, this fragrance has a heavier, sexier element, which gives just that extra touch of zing for a night out. Basically, this fun, versatile fragrance allows us to channel our inner Cali girl—day and night.
