Karl announced back in October 2012 that he was cutting ties with Coty and embarking on a new fragrance venture with Inter Parfums SA.
“When lavender is too basic, I don’t like it, Especially in the modern world, there has to be a kind of sophistication and not too much of a down-to-earth garden, flowery hot-house mood. That’s from the past. There has to be a sophisticated twist in the perfume; if not, the old ones are better. The important thing with a perfume is to be new when it comes out and [then] turn into a classic in your bathroom.” Lagerfeld
The new scents for men and women are based on Lagerfeld’s desire to create fragrances that echo his edgy style, while still feeling classic as can be seen by the design of the bottle. The women’s version uses notes of lemon, peach, roses, magnolias, plumeria, and ambery woody notes, while the men’s scent is centered around an aromatic fern with lavender, mandarin zest, apple, violet leaves, sandalwood, and an amber blend.
KARL LAGERFELD FOR HER is a vibrant floral green fragrance with a fresh, metallic rose,electrified by lime and magnolia, illuminated by frangipani flower and softened by velvety peach, in a fabric of sensual musks oversewed by black ambery.
KARL LAGERFELD FOR HIM is a sensual masculine fougere aromatic, where lavender is enhanced by green violet and apple notes on an addictive, comfortable ambery woody dry-down and cold spicy notes of a race vibrant character.
