Lily Aldridge smelled the scent of a horse while creating her new perfume line.
The model launched her debut perfume, Haven, back in September, and recently released her second, muskier scent, Summit.
In a new interview with People Now!, the mother-of-two opened up about the development of her beauty brand and revealed that she was involved in the complex process from beginning to end.
“I did everything,” Lily explained of her hands-on approach to choosing the fragrances, adding that she was told to smell her shoulder in-between sniffing different scents to cleanse her palate.
And when asked about the strangest scent she had smelled during the creative process, she confessed it was something very unusual.
“When I went to the lab and I was creating, they were like, ‘You can bottle anything, the essence of anything,'” the 34-year-old explained. “So, I tried ‘horse’. The smell of a horse. It smelled just like a horse had been running through the fields.
“It didn’t smell great. But the second I smelt it, I was like, ‘Oh my God, this is a horse. I can see it.’ It was crazy.”
Describing her second perfume, Summit, as a “warm hug”, Lily noted that even her Kings of Leon rocker husband Caleb Followill is a fan of the spicy fragrance, as it features notes of leather, tobacco, and cardamom.
Summit, and Lily’s debut fragrance Haven, priced at $50 (£37) each, are available to buy from her website.
