Makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury has just ventured out into the beauty industry creating her first-ever fragrance. To hit it even bigger, she has teamed up with model Kate Moss for the official launch of her Scent of a Dream fragrance.
Formulated to generate “an emotional pathway to the brain and to the sex receptors” or, to put it in other words, “to incite a desire that you can’t control,” Charlotte Tilbury’s debut fragrance is probably one of the most highly anticipated beauty products of the year, and the fact that the makeup artist tapped iconic Kate Moss as the brand ambassador of the fragrance makes everything even better.
Tilbury, who is often described as one of the world’s leading makeup artists and is mainly renowned for her notorious “the Tilbury tap”, launched her eponymous makeup line less than a few years ago, with the Magic Cream being one of the line’s most demanded products. She has launched the highly covetable Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips lipsticks inspired by 16 celebrities just recently.
Now that she finally entered the world of the fragrances, we can’t help but hope the red-haired artist will keep on (literally) infusing the hair with similar sophisticated and philosophical scents for many years to come.
The Charlotte Tilbury Scent of a Dream fragrance is not an average perfume, as its balanced formula is reportedly capable of producing “olfactory ecstasy” that, as a result, functions as a sort of olfactory version of the mythological Mermaids Singing.
“I have been mixing my own secret scent for years and have been fascinated by the idea that one’s perfume can attract others and also change the energy frequency of the people and environment around you,” Tilbury told British Vogue in an official statement, revealing that besides makeup and art she literally likes to play with the chemistry of seduction.
Whether the Scent of a Dream is a sort of snake charmer for humans or not, only time (and a few volunteers) will tell. What we do know for sure, however, is that the Kate Moss x Charlotte Tilbury combination is seductive for sure.
Kate Moss, who was one of the first to receive a sample of the fragrance, got captured by talented photographer Sølve Sundsbø in the perfume’s campaign, who skillfully managed to translate the fragrance’s seductive concept to a dreamlike array of sophisticated, free-spirited pictures that could charm anyone for sure.
Overwhelmed with glittering golden shadows and sparkles (which recall the fragrance’s packaging too), Moss is seen sporting a Chloé dress out in the wild, with an au naturel look and a perfect foundation that, in return, recalls Tilbury’s makeup style.
Fairytale-like and glamorous, the campaign will likely enter the Fashion Hall of Fame and quickly become unanimously regarded as iconic for sure, as everything that Moss touches turns to gold.
Developed by perfumer François Robert, the Charlotte Tilbury Scent of a Dream fragrance will be available for purchase in 30, 50 and 100 ml (£49, £69 and £96 accordingly), on CharlotteTibury.com and in Selfridges starting from the 15th of August.
