An #AerieWHOA Moment with Jessica P., Associate Buyer of Fragrance & Beauty

We had the opportunity to sit down with the woman behind our newest fragrance, WHOA!!. Feminine and luscious, the WHOA!! fragrance is the perfect addition to your already chic cosmetics morning ritual.

Read on to learn more about Jessica P., Aerie’s Associate Buyer of Fragrance and Beauty, and join us as she gives us a behind-the-scenes look at the new arrival and exclusive beauty advice.

Aerie Associate Buyer for Beauty and Fragrance, Jessica P.

We are so excited about the new WHOA!! fragrance! What was your (and the team’s) inspiration for this new addition to our fragrance line?

We wanted to add a scent that was bright, juicy, mouth-watering and luscious to the collection.

The scent smells so beautiful and there is definitely a hint of florals. What other base notes were used?

Thank you! Some of the other notes include clementine and lulo fruit, as well as rosewood and sandalwood.

If you could describe WHOA! ! in one adjective, what would it be?

Juicy!

The design of the bottle is so feminine. How was the design decided upon?

When designing the bottle, the team was looking for the bottle to fit perfectly within the Aerie brand focusing on the look and feel to be feminine and elevated, like a precious jewel.

Where do you recommend applying fragrance?

On your pulse points, such as your inner wrists (without rubbing wrists together, this can breakdown the fragrance), neck, and inner elbows.

Are you an everyday fragrance girl or do you wear it for special occasions only?

I’m an everyday fragrance girl.

How many perfumes do you own?

Around 10!

What other Aerie fragrances should we be keeping our eye on?

I would keep an eye out for Aerie, Daydream, and Hidden Love. Together, they complete Aerie’s fragrance collection. We have re-packaged these best-selling, most popular fragrances.

What’s the best way to test a fragrance?

The best way to test fragrance is on your skin. (Versus just spraying it into the air.) Apply a little fragrance to the inner wrist, wait a few minutes, and then smell.

Do you prefer a bottle, a rollerball, or both? 

Both! I like that the spray bottles disperse the fragrance when applying. The rollerball applicator is great to use to keep your scent fresh and to use when traveling.

What’s your WHOA!! moment?

It is hard to pick just one; my favorite WHOA!! moment is spending time with family & friends.

AE Fall 2013 Press Preview Recap

AE Fall 2013 Press Preview Recap

Every season, a group of lucky editors from some of the biggest fashion and lifestyle publications lining your local mag racks stop by our NYC design headquarters for a sneak peek at our upcoming collection. We set up all of our favorite looks in one room, letting the editors see everything layered and mixed, to show the full style-defining potential of every piece. We also share logos, stories and other creative elements beyond the clothes themselves to further illustrate our inspiration for the collection as a whole.

Pretty sweet, right?

Well, we figured, why should the editors get to have all the fun? We want to know your thoughts on our upcoming looks even more! So without further ado, we proudly and enthusiastically present to you our Fall 2013 collection…

MEN’S

Continuing the AE tradition of designing the coolest men’s denim fits, we’ve tweaked a few time-honored favorites with updated details—and they all feature rich, rugged washes. We’re also adding two new fits to the mix: Original Taper (a modern, tailor-inspired fit that’s relaxed in the hip and narrows to an awesome slim leg) and Relaxed Straight (our update to Relaxed, which gives this laid-back classic a more made-for-today feel with a straight fit through the entire leg). We even have new fits to our chino assortment, with dark khaki washes and rich, rustic fall colors.

Extending our focus on American heritage beyond jeans, we’re introducing amazing surplus- and workwear-inspired elements throughout the men’s collection. You’ll be able to find new denim Westerns, chambray button-downs and military-inspired outerwear that all embody vintage cool in fresh, individual ways. Sartorial vintage prep plays a big part in the Fall collection, too, especially with our new polos, extended array of Sharp Shop shirts and trim blazers. Rugby stripes and vintage crew sweatshirts also continue the theme of vintage prep.

WOMEN’S

For over 30 years, we’ve been dedicated to bringing you the very best in denim. The AE Fall 2013 collection upgrades your all-time favorite fits with vintage washes and city-inspired details like moto stitching, zippered pockets and subtle deconstruction. To ensure we have the perfect pair of jeans for everyone, we’ve added two new women’s fits. The Kick Boot is a clean, refined take on the classic bootcut with a structured and subtly flared leg opening, while the Jegging Ankle offers our slimmest, sexiest fit in the must-have length of the season.

We’ve carried our commitment to quality and attention to detail over into all other elements of the collection, too. We’re excited to introduce truly amazing statement jackets crafted to combine elements of glam and grunge, girly and edgy, rock and romance. Touches of delicate lace come together with airy boho-inspired crochet and classic feminine silhouettes to create looks that are both modern and vintage-inspired. We’re also embracing the effortless sophistication of old school prep by adding in timeless accessories—like the perfect hobo bag, accent scarf or embellished flats.

MEN’S AND WOMEN’S

Lastly, we presented something we’ve never offered before and are SUPER excited about: an entire line of all-new performance wear for guys and girls. Made for everyone who makes their workout fit how they live their life, the line is perfect from class to coffee to cardio. Our shorts, tops, hoodies and more have pops of vibrant color and small details that really matter, both for exercise functionality and style.
