With her Topshop line, Kate Moss has commandeered the clothing market, and now with her fourth fragrance, Kate is building upon her perfume empire. Kate Moss Vintage is the most recent launch by Kate Moss franchise after Kate (2007), Velvet Hour (2008) and Kate Moss Summer Time (2009). The fragrance was just introduced in September.
The main inspiration for the perfume is Kate Moss’s self-confessed love for anything vintage. It opens on both a powdery and fruity accord (mandarin) which seeks to be slightly innovative, with almond-y and woodsy undertone. The composition immediately smells familiar besides Johnson and Johnson baby powder accord which dominates.
The title, Vintage goes quite perfectly with her personal style and inspiration. Ad campaign features the model lounging effortlessly in a display to promote the new fragrance. The perfume packs top notes of pink peppercorn, mandarin, white freesia; mid tones of jasmine, heliotrope, almond blossom; and base notes of tonka bean, vanilla and musk. It’s a fruity floral oriental fragrance, developed by perfumer Olivier Polge, available in 15 and 30 ml Eau de Toilette, and in matching body products.
