NST Perfume — Gwen Stefani will launch a new set of limited edition Harajuku Lovers fragrances next month under the name Harajuku Lovers Wicked Style:
The Harajuku Girls and G have made their way back to where it all started, the streets of Harajuku! One of their favorite places to see and be seen in Harajuku is Takeshita-Dori â€“ a narrow pedestrian only street packed with young fashionable people. Takeshita-Dori is definitely the place to go if you are crazy about fashionâ€¦and the Harajuku Girls and G are certainly CRAZY about their fashion!
The girlâ€™s [sic] are prowling the streets of Harajuku dressed in fashions that originated in Japan â€“ Sweet Lolita, Gothic Lolita, Visual Kei, Kawaii and the OmotesandÅ Girl. Each girl has her own distinct â€œwicked styleâ€ that is expressed from her brightly colored â€œflockedâ€ hair down to her super cute shoes.
Love (shown above far left) ~ A fruity floral by perfumer Maurice Roucel with notes of nectarine, mangosteen, pear, orange blossom, lotus, violet, osmanthus, blonde woods, musk, sandalwood, patchouli and praline. â€œThis Lolita look is heavily influenced by Rococo styles. It consists primarily of a knee length skirt or dress, headdress, blouse, petticoat, knee high socks, and â€˜rocking horseâ€™ shoes.â€
Lil Angel (above second to left) ~ A sparkling floral by perfumer Celine Barel with notes of plum, champagne, bergamot, pomelo, lotus, Queen rose leaf, waterlilies, satin wood, amber and skin musks. â€œThe gothic fashion has been adopted into this Lolita style through the use of darker make-up, clothing and themes. Dark lipstick and smoky eyes are typical styles.â€
Music (above second to right) ~ a woody floral by perfumer Adriana Medina with notes of apple, watery fruit, bergamot, jasmine, gardenia, fuschia, peony, cedar, iridescent musks and crystallized amber. â€œMusicâ€™s attire refers to a movement among Japanese musicians that is characterized by the use of make-up, elaborate hair styles, and flamboyant costumes.â€
Baby (above far right not shown) ~ A vanilla floral by perfumer Honorine Blanc with notes of white peach, apple, freesia, plumeria, orchid, jasmine, amber, musk and creamy sandalwood. â€œThe style uses lots of layering in bright or pastel colors. The accessories include plastic furry toys and jewelry.â€
G (above center) ~ A fruity floral by perfumer Christelle Laprade with notes of apple, peach, pineapple, watermelon, butterfly bush, peony, raspberry, musk and water accord. â€œDriven to be a fashion forward individual, the OmotesandÅ girl scours the high end and cutting edge shops and boutiques of OmotesandÅ â€“ otherwise known as â€˜Tokyoâ€™s Champs-ElysÃ©Ã©s.â€™â€
The Harajuku Lovers Wicked Style fragrances will be available in 10 and 30 ml Eau de Toilette. (via press release)
