L’Wren Scott launched her first luxury scent at Barneys New York’s Manhattan flagship as an exclusive billed by the store as “the premier of [its] designer fragrance collection.”

When creating her first fragrance, L’Wren Scott — the designer, stylist, and longtime partner to rock star Mick Jagger — set out to create a scent that takes the wearer on a journey. Essentially, it’s a perfume postcard.
The spicy and sensual scent opens with top notes of absinthe, star anise, coriander, mandarin and marigold, followed by a heart of tuberose, jasmine, geranium, curry and clove buds, with a drydown comprised of Brazilian patchouli, musk, leather, amber and moss.

The designer feted her debut with a Barneys-thrown dinner at The Carlyle. Guests — including Mark Lee, Ingrid Sischy and Daphne Guinness — dallied around during cocktails, most attempting to keep their cool and not stare at Jagger, who was joined by bandmates Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood. Others couldn’t help themselves.
