New York (ots/PRNewswire) – Today, the Grammy® Award Winner Ariana Grande with its new, powerful fragrance God is a Woman to a breathtaking, sensual and intimate experience. The highly anticipated fragrance, a fresh touch for the senses, is available from today in collaboration with LUXE Brands exclusively on Ulta.com and from August 1, 2021 at Ulta Beauty throughout the USA.
Inspired by the power of nature, God is a Woman is made up of 91% natural, clean ingredients – a first for the accomplished Ariana Grande Fragrance franchise – and is 100% vegan and cruelty-free. In the first two weeks after the launch of God is a Woman, a contribution from every eligible purchase of the fragrance will be donated to initiatives to clean up the oceans – worldwide.
“I’m thrilled to celebrate the launch of our first clean fragrance,” said Grande. “Of course, we have worked without animal testing before, but this further step towards a really clean product with materials from responsible sources and vegan ingredients makes us all very proud. I really love this fragrance and hope that everyone who wears it feels beautiful and strengthened with it.”
“God is a Woman stands for Ariana’s powerful message to her fans. The seductive fragrance and brand are a evolution of the franchise towards clean cosmetics,” explains Noreen Dodge, Head of Marketing at LUXE Brands. “The brand has always been cruelty-free and uses the highest quality ingredients. However, we want to switch our packaging to more sustainable materials across the entire product line. Industry leaders in many sectors are already taking these steps prudently and consciously, and you can look forward to more exciting changes in the franchise.”
Developed by Jerome Epinette of Robertet, the perfumer and artisan behind Byredo and Atelier Cologne, God is a surprising combination of luxurious, natural ingredients that envelop you from head to toe. “God is a Woman presents an unprecedented duality in fragrance – a very simple perfume structure around some of the most sought-after and exquisite natural materials available to me as a perfumer – specifically musk ambrette and the iris root. The way we created this fragrance, in my opinion, represents the future of perfumes: simplicity and luxury, anchored in nature,” explains Jerome Epinette, Vice President & Master Perfumer at Robertet Inc.
Grande launched her first fragrance in 2015. Since then, Grande’s global success in perfumes has been unprecedented, with retail sales of over $750 million since launch. The award-winning franchise has been nominated for “Fragrance of the Year”, “Media Campaign of the Year” and “Product of Choice” for the launch of the perfume “Thank U Next” in 2019. The fragrances “Cloud” and “R.E.M.” were awarded “Fragrance of the Year” in 2020 and 2021 respectively.
“I remain impressed by Ariana’s close relationship with her fans and her hands-on approach to creating unique fragrances they’ll love, as well as the authentic advertising campaigns that appeal to their fans,” said Tony Bajaj, Chief Executive Officer of LUXE Brands. “Whether it’s the fragrances themselves or the sustainable materials used in the packaging, Ariana has always been fully involved in the creative process behind God is a Woman. LUXE Brands is delighted to once again be working with such an influential icon.”
The packaging design of “God is a Woman” makes a very bold statement in a simple way. The transparent lavender vial has a high, raised shape, is thin and elegant and exudes a timeless purity, sealed with a creamy white closure. The bottle is housed in an amazing stone-like holder, a unique, divine-looking combination.
The secondary packaging shows Ariana in the midst of beautiful flowers, almost as if she were one with nature, creating a fantasy scene full of transcendence.
