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.
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?
If you could describe WHOA! ! in one adjective, what would it be?
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?
What other Aerie fragrances should we be keeping our eye on?
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.
Thank you for the behind-the-scenes look Jessica!
