Inspired by the glamorous world of young, urban creatives, Carolina Herrera presents 212 VIP, a scent for the ‘real’ VIPs of New York. These young upstarts don’t have an abundance of money or even fame on their side. Instead, they are infamous for their uniqueness and their character; eccentric, exotic and charming. They shine like stars in a room full of egos with their natural luminosity. They are VIP.
212 VIP is as lively a scent as you might come to expect considering the inspiration. Described as a both a ‘fun, festive and floral’ fragrance, and ‘an explosive cocktail’, this is a scent with which to make a deep and lasting impression.
The fragrance opens up with the heady top notes of rum and passion fruit, a cocktail reminiscent of languorous rooftop pools parties and stylish revelry. This explosive fruitiness is tempered with a sophisticated heart of abundant musk and gardenia, reflecting the distinguished character of the VIPs and their eternal style. The blend rounds off with a delicious base of vanilla and tonka bean; ultra-feminine, elegant and sensual. It is the scent of the luxe, the idiosyncratic and the fearless.
The bottle is a reincarnation of the original 212 flacon. Whereas 212 focused upon pure, clean lines and the luminosity of freshness, 212 VIP is luxury pushed to the extreme. An object of pure desire, the dazzling bottle drips with gold and is embossed with the hallmark of the 212 VIP. With its attractive, feminine and curvaceous lines, it is beautifully and lovingly conceived, right through to its magnetic lid.
