4 years of improvement later, the model is unveiling unisex, rollerball perfume oils named R, O, and W. All three are based mostly in sandalwood, the creamy, heat, and grounding scent perfumers typically affiliate with a loving hug, and common individuals most likely principally affiliate with Santal 33. “Ashley and Mary-Kate’s appreciation of sandalwood coupled with its innate refinement, consolation and familiarity shortly made it the uncooked materials of our focus,” van Oosten advised the publication.
However relaxation assured the Row’s sandalwood isn’t like different sandalwood. In line with van Oosten, it got here from a collector with a “treasured stash” that “had been sealed for over 20 years,” and offers off a scent that “stops time.” That point-stopping scent is now bottled with completely different MKA-approved vibes. R is extra of an “embrace” that options recent tobacco leaves, burnt rue seeds, and rose, good for sisterly smoke breaks; O encourages you to “envision” with notes of blue water lily, frankincense, and orris (probably the most expensive products in perfumery), good to pair with the world’s most luxurious fanny pack; and W invitations you to “broaden” with notes of amber, champa, and incense woods, good for a forest stroll with machete and cocktail in hand.
The 7-ml oils will solely be accessible in restricted portions at The Row’s flagships in New York, Los Angeles, and London, however you may stare at them on the brand’s website. R and W each retail at $490, whereas O will set you again $550, which is lower than a pair of cashmere pants for your kid, if that helps.
