You Got It From Your Mama!

Find out what Iskra, Yara and Aly got from their mamas and share your story! Tell us what you got from your mama or what you hope to pass on to your kids with us @Aerie #AerieREAL.

Iskra Lawrence with her mom, Wilma

Iskra: “Her gift is that she’s grateful and excited for each and every single thing in life. That’s really really wonderful and so happy and positive to be around. You show me what unconditional love truly means.”

Wilma: “I think for moms out there, it’s really important to always be positive, to bring a positive vibe each day, to tell your children how much you love them, how much you do appreciate them. Just be happy.”

Yara Shahidi with her mom, Keri

Yara: My mom is one of the biggest influences in my life. Part of it is just watching her maneuver through the world. Being able to be in your presence, I’ve watched you maneuver through the world without compromising. You’ve always been very honest and open with me.Even being able to see the times in which you’ve struggled has made it so I embrace myself and I embrace the moments when I don’t feel my best. And rather than glossing over those, you’ve taught me to really live in those moments and figure out how to grow from those moments rather than feeling as though I have to attain some random idea of perfection.”

SHOP THE LOOK: Aerie Strapless Ruffle Jumpsuit

Keri: “I feel like one of my jobs before I had her, before my husband and I manifested this creature, was to know that we were depositing goodness. And for her to reflect back and say ‘geez thank you’ without me whispering in her ear “name me a role model” is honestly more than I could ever ask. So I’m honored.”

Real Talk With Iskra: Spark x Iskra Fragrance

Introducing… Spark x Iskra! An extra-special new collaboration with #AerieREAL Role Model, Iskra. Her first fragrance comes in a eau de parfum, and a special self-care kit that also includes a bath bomb and candle. We can’t get enough of this scent for spring! Read on to see what inspired Iskra to create this new scent.Real Talk With Iskra: Spark x Iskra Fragrance

How did this amazing new fragrance come to be?

I’ve been working with Aerie for 4 years. Over the years my role as #AerieREAL Role Model has grown and I’ve had the opportunity to work on new and exciting projects with them, this fragrance is one of those! I have such a strong connection with Aerie and their consumers, I really felt like I could create a fragrance that the Aerie fan base could connect with and love. It’s amazing to be part of Aerie campaigns and be behind the camera. To create something with them from scratch was such a fun and exciting experience!

Spark x Iskra’s notes are fresh watermelon, delicate jasmine and cozy vanilla. What was the inspiration behind choosing these notes?

When I was deciding which scents I wanted, the most important thing to me was to make sure the end result was something that made women and girls feel confident, happy, empowered to be themselves, express their uniqueness, and to have a ton of fun doing it! Somehow, the notes of fresh watermelon, delicate jasmine and cozy vanilla did just that. I am so excited for people to try it.

Tell us about the bottle & design of the fragrance. What’s special about it?

Like everything I do with Aerie I want the product to be totally unique but also really accessible for my followers. I think the bottle and its design captures the feeling I want people to have when they wear my fragrance. What’s unique is the stickers that come with the bottle. The stickers can be used to customise the bottle so it reflects your personality, so you can have a one-of-a-kind bottle just like you are one of a kind!

The Spark x Iskra collection features a fragrance, scented bath bomb and candle. Can we look forward to seeing more of your signature products in the future?

Creating these products was so much fun. I absolutely loved the process. It is such a cool experience creating something tangible from scratch that people will be able to actually use and I definitely would be interested in expanding on that. That said, right now I am really focusing on the launch of the Spark x Iskra collection and excited to finally share my fragrance with my followers and the Aerie fans!
