Nicole Richie Launches First Fragrance 'Nicole by Nicole Richie'

Nichole Richie is quickly making a name for herself in the fashion, accessories and now perfume industry. Lionel Richie’s daughter was met with success when she launched jewelry line ‘House of Harlow 1960’ in 2008. The line has since expanded to include apparel and shoes. In 2010 Nicole added a women’s line called ‘Winter Kate’ after her daughter’s two middle names.

This week Women’s Wear Daily announced the 30-year old’s plans to launch her first fragrance ‘Nicole by Nicole Richie’. The scent is a layered mix of blackberry, Seville orange, golden amber, Moroccan rose, lily of the valley, papyrus, cashmere woods, sandalwood, sugared patchouli and vanilla absolute.

Nicole revealed the inspiration of the fragrance to WWD last month,

“I have a very traditional Southern mom — you never left the house without lotion. … Over her lotion went oil and perfume — she was very put together from head to toe. It wasn’t just a one-dimensional smell — there were many different layers. I wanted it to represent different layers of a woman, which is what I try to do with Winter Kate and House of Harlow 1960,”

As if launching a new fragrance and managing a successful retail empire wasn’t enough Nicole agreed to complete a limited edition clothing line for Macy’s. The Fashion Star attended an event late last week celebrating the collaboration. You can get a sneak peak at the collection from Nicole’s outfit: she wore a print chiffon blouse and leather pants from the collection.

Both the fragrance and Macy’s collection will be available in September.
