Michelle Pfeif­fer Is Eau So Cool

InStyle (USA) - - Beauty -

She’s known as one of the world’s most iconic beau­ties, but ac­tress Michelle Pfeif­fer never dreamed she’d ever work in the beauty in­dus­try. “It wasn’t un­til I looked at the world [as] a new mother that I be­gan to pay closer at­ten­tion to what I was putting in and on my body,” she says. And so started a decade-long jour­ney to cre­ate a fra­grance that would be both cap­ti­vat­ing and clean. She col­lab­o­rated with the non­profit En­vi­ron­men­tal Work­ing Group to craft safe scents, avoid­ing ques­tion­able and potentiall­y toxic com­po­nents. “We nar­rowed down the usual palette of 3,000 in­gre­di­ents that per­fumers typ­i­cally work with to roughly 300.” The re­sult is five dreamy uni­sex blends, but, she says, Torn, a blend of ve­tiver, patchouli, and vanilla bean, is her fa­vorite. “It re­minds me of what my fa­ther smelled like while I was grow­ing up, which is an ex­am­ple of how strongly fra­grance is tied to mem­ory. But I re­ally love them all.”
