Halston Woman Perfume by Halston, Debuting in 2009, Halston Woman is an updated version of the 1975 classic of the same name.
Created by Carlos Benaim, this revised fragrance encapsulates what it means to be a sophisticated woman in the modern era. The top notes ring true with the essence of bergamot, tagetes and black currant. The heart notes strike a chord with rose, orris root and jasmine. The base is formed around a potent patchouli aroma mixed with amber and sandalwood.
The Halston fashion line has been around since the 1970s. It was created by Roy H. Frowick who made $30 million in sales from it between 1968 to 1973. It was at that point that he sold the rights to the line to Norton Simon Inc. However, he stayed with the brand as the principal designer. This gave him considerable creative freedom combined with a deep bankroll. Frowick began his career designing hats and women’s clothing, but eventually expanded into men’s clothing, handbags, luggage and fragrances. His first namesake fragrance debuted in 1975.
