Gwen Stefani has clearly defined herself by her unique talent and abilities on the music charts. She has also managed to translate her unique sense of style into her own clothing line called L.A.M.B which is an acronym she created that stands for Love, Angel, Music, Baby (she incorporates this into her song lyrics which helps solidify her brand as well). What else would possibly come next, but a new fragrance? Following in the footsteps of many other celebrity endorsed product brands including Jennifer Lopez, Stephani has made the jump into the cosmetics industry with the introduction of her new fragrance called “L”. It is suspected that this will be followed up with the other letters A, M and B, but at this point that remains to be seen.
What does the new fragrance smell like?
Apparently, Gwen wanted to create a very light, clean, refreshing green fragrance that could be worn by just about anyone. The scent may remind you of the first day of spring with just a slight hint of sexy. The top notes include: leafy water hyacinth, sparkling green freshness, violet leaves, fresh pear and white freesia. The heart or middle notes are: rose, jasmine petals, brush stroke of orange blossom, sweet pea and muget. The base or final notes come from: sensual musk, heliotrope flower, peach skin and frangipani blossom. The scent is subtle and not overpowering. It is more of a clean smell and less like wearing your grandmother’s perfume, which for most young people today is a good thing.
What forms of the product are available?
Gwen Stefani’s “L” from the L.A.M.B line includes several forms including a .11 oz solid perfume compact, three sizes of eau de parfum sprays: 1 oz, 1.7 oz and 3.4 oz as well as a shower gel and body lotion. Fragrance professionals usually recommend layering the product by using all of the various forms in order to create the most lasting effect.
The presentation and packaging
The packaging appears to have somewhat of a uni-sex appearance with an elegant rectangular shaped top that is engraved with line that steps over and drops down from the center and rainbow colored translucent glass bottle. The “L” appears engraved with an old English style. The shower gel and lotion come in turquoise colored tubes with a gold “L” on them and the solid parfum compact is very elegant in all gold. Overall, the look is very elegant, maybe even indulgent and very upscale. The print ads are nothing short of glamorous with Gwen sporting a Marilyn Monroe look and plenty of glitz and shine.
Some reviewers have claimed that Gwen Stefani’s new L.A.M.B fragrance “L” is not as unique and original as the singer herself is, but she has attained her goal of a fresh, subtle, green scent. Her packaging and presentation are beautifully elegant and the print ads are extremely glamorous with Stefani channeling Marilyn Monroe.
