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!
