Oscar de la Renta introduces Esprit d’Oscar‏

Esprit d’Oscar

The Spirit of Femininity

Over thirty years ago, Oscar de la Renta dreamed of creating a perfume that captured the joy and sophistication of his fashion designs. In 1977, he created his signature fragrance OSCAR, a celebration of women, timeless and feminine.

Today, Oscar de la Renta introduces Esprit d’Oscar Eau de Parfum, a modern take on his signature scent, inspired by the chic and sophisticated women of a new era.

To capture the essence of what a woman desires in her fragrance, Oscar turned to his daughter Eliza to help create Esprit d’Oscar, an unmistakably feminine floral-oriental. Esprit d’Oscar opens with a distinct sparkle, realized through a bright, citrus bouquet of Sicilian lemon, bergamot and citron. At its heart remain fresh florals: Egyptian jasmine, orange flower and tuberose. A combination of musk, heliotrope, tonka bean and vetiver give Esprit d’Oscar a warm, long-lasting base.

Inspired by the original Oscar Parfum bottle design, Oscar envisioned a package for Esprit d’Oscar that would marry the feel of the iconic original, with a fresh contemporary look. Sculptural glass and sleek feminine contours characterize the Esprit d’Oscar bottle. On top of its translucent flower cap, a glass pearl represents a single dewdrop, a symbol from the original Oscar story. When he was a boy, Oscar de la Renta imagined that if he woke up very early, he could take the dew from flowers to create a perfume…and so he did.

Esprit d’Oscar represents the spirit of femininity reimagined.

Esprit d’Oscar 3.3 oz Eau de Parfum Spray Suggested Retail $98.00

Esprit d’Oscar 1.6 oz Eau de Parfum Spray Suggested Retail $78.00

Esprit d’Oscar is available in early April 2011 at select department stores.
