Italian label Marni to release first ever fragrance


Italian fashion label Marni, in collaboration with Estée Lauder company, is to release a new female scent, called Marni, in February 2013.

Marni was established in 1994 and has developed a longstanding reputation for quirky prints and playful Italian tailoring. Marni now turns over in excess of $100 million every year.

Because it’s a perfume that’s quite individual, that doesn’t evoke anything in particular. It’s for a woman who dresses for herself, who doesn’t follow trends but is sophisticated and also maybe a little eccentric

Consuelo Castiglioni, founder

The scent was produced with Aramis and the Designer Fragrances division at Estée Lauder. The 65-ml eau de parfum will sell for $105 and a 120-ml size will cost $155.


The Marni fragrance line will also include body lotion, shower gel, a deodorant and a body cream. In the U.S. the brand will debut with six-month exclusive availability at Saks Fifth Avenue and will then expand to 2,000 points of sale worldwide.
