GWYN: I KNOW WHAT QUIET SMELLS LIKE! 1
What does pretentiousness smell like? If you feel like plunking down $165 for 1.7 ounces of Gwyneth Paltrow’s first fragrance, dubbed “Edition 01 — Winter 2016,” you can find out! “I’ve always had a wardrobe of fragrances, so I wanted to do one for each season,” says the 44-year-old, who explains that her inaugural scent features notes of “snow” and “sensual quiet.” (We predict that Spring will make you smell like the gentle flapping of butterfly wings.) According to her GOOP website, the non-toxic ingredients include labdanum, which is “used when the soul steps out of its comfort zone,” frankincense “for magical spiritual meditations” and cypress “to alleviate the loss of friends.” That last one is a subject we think Gwyneth is probably an expert on!
