I recently hosted a lunch for some of my closest friends and colleagues to introduce the Woman by Ralph Lauren fragrance. We enjoyed a delicious, Asian meal while we talked about the fragrance and the inspiration behind it.
This is the first female scent Ralph Lauren has created in 10 years, taking inspiration from the mix of masculinity and femininity. The scent captures both so well with bold tuberose and rich, vibrant woods.
The bottle is designed differently than most fragrances I've seen, and could easily serve as a piece of decor in the home. The shape design resembles a flask, with rose gold finishes to embody the feminine side of the fragrance.
Putting together the table setting was so much fun and something I definitely wouldn't mind doing again. I really wanted the decor to resemble the fragrance, feminine yet bold. I chose light colors and gold accents. I am obsessed with these plates and the monogrammed boxes each of the girls got to take their fragrances home in.
It's always such a good time when this group gets together. I say this often, but the celebration of womanhood is so important to me, so being able to collaborate with this fragrance and the story behind it was the highlight of my week.
I hope the girls enjoyed themselves and left feeling full of delicious food, smelling amazing and like always, feeling proud to be a woman. #leadlikeawoman Xx Darja
