“People are not born with elegance, elegance is a discipline of how you live life”
– Oscar de la Renta
Part of our team attended the event and even though it was a long day for Oscar de la Renta, we were able to chat with him and capture the moment.
Live-in-love opens with sparkling ginger orchid and bergamot, merged with lush hyacinth, green muguet and galbanum. The scent has a heart of florals, including jasmine sambac, orange flower and rose. Creamy white woods and sensual musk intertwine with amber, sandalwood and cedarwood at its base. The complexity of Live-in-love evokes that of a classic scent, made with ingredients of the highest quality.
The bottle, designed by Oscar de la Renta himself, was conceived much like a dress – with attention to detail and a level of craftsmanship that are the Oscar de la Renta signatures. The faceted glass represents the many dimensions of a woman’s life, each aspect lived to the fullest, in love.
Live-in-love is an expression of Oscar de la Renta’s desire to make every woman feel like the most beautiful woman in the world. With Live-in-love, he has created an unforgettable scent for a woman to fall in love with.
