GOOD GIRL by Carolina Herrera

"It's so good to be bad!"

As Karlie Moss struts in her heels in ad campaign, all you can think is “who is this ???”, and that is exactly the vibe this fragrance sends. The black stiletto shaped bottle may be come off as tacky to some but to others its a very sexy touch to a very sexy fragrance.

The packaging is just elegant and attractive. Deep blue with gold accent is sure to be one of the most attractive pieces on your dresser. The bottle is also made of heavy glass and doesn’t feel cheap. The “good girl” moniker, a submissive’s reward, the bad things a “girl” does that earn her a good reaction from her significant other. A very kinky, “50 Shades of Grey” vibe there if you haven’t caught it yet.

“We had so many different prototypes of different heels and shoes and labels inside and labels underneath. We went from ballet slippers to Cinderella, to stripper to elegant. We had shoes for everybody until we said, ‘That’s it,’” Herrera Baez said of arriving at the final design for the bottle.

Herrera Baez, who headed the scent’s concept and design of the bottle, said that like many fragrances for the House of Herrera, jasmine is a key component. The very first Herrera perfume of almost 30 years ago was jasmine- and tuberose-based, she explained, and this one infuses jasmine and tonka beans. A floral wave of white Sambac jasmine and tuberose is placed in contrast with the mysterious and deep notes of tonka bean and cocoa.
