Lily Aldridge wanted her debut perfume Haven to smell like the garden flowers at her home in Nashville.
The Victoria’s Secret Angel unveiled her eponymous fragrance company back in August, and her first-ever perfume was released earlier this month.
The mother-of-two worked for two years with perfumer Yves Caesar to create Haven and the process was personal, as she was trying to replicate the scent of her garden at the home she shares with husband Caleb Followill in Nashville, Tennessee.
“When I said I want a floral, they were like, ‘What kind of floral?’ You have to pick gardenia or peony or roses, and then what kind of rose, how sticky the rose, how dry the rose. So many little details, which was so fun and exciting,” Aldridge explained to Allure.
Next up for Lily Aldridge Parfums is Summit, which will drop in November. And the 33-year-old surprised herself by picking a spicy and musky scent she initially thought she never wear herself.
“Summit isn’t necessarily something I would gravitate to if I saw it in print, but I love it,” she explained of the perfume, which features notes of tobacco, leather, and spices. “It’s a side of me that I didn’t even know was there.”
She even wore Summit to the Met Gala in May so she could transform into a different character.
“My Met Ball look this year was very edgy, and I feel like it completed the story for me. It just felt moody and sexy for the night. And it’s fun to have something where you’re like, ‘Ooh, I want to wear this tonight because I want to play this character or I feel this way,'” she stated.
