Images were shared online this week of the new Too Faced Better Than Sex Eau de Parfum, and the co-founder of Too Faced has shared an Instagram IGTV sharing his upset over the ‘leaked’ photos, as he wanted to do the fragrance reveal himself.
He has now shared the Too Faced Better Than Sex Eau de Parfum, and a sneak peek at what we can expect from the first ever Too Faced fragrance.
“Better Than Sex Eau de Parfum envelops you in an exotic, rich blend of golden amber, intoxicating patchouli, and raw cedarwood layered with an unforgettable combination of playful passionfruit, sparkling lychee, and seductive peach.
Intriguing pink magnolia, sweet jasmine, vanilla orchid, and romantic black rose drape over skin like an invitation delivered with an enticing wink. A whisper of spicy smoke lingers like the sensual aroma of a candle softly blown out, its memory wafting through the room.
Warmed with notes of citrus, musk, and wild wood that hint at the passionate desires of the lover that awaits you. A sophisticated, modern love potion for women and men who are ready to make a statement in the bedroom and beyond.“
The Too Faced Better Than Sex Eau de Parfum is something Jerrod Blandino has been working on for a really long time, and was his ‘passion project’, and was created to be inspired by the Better Than Sex Mascara.
Inspiration for the bottle design came from an antique Dresden lamp Jerrod owns. The bottle design marries not only traditional and modern elements – plus traditional Too Faced imagery of bows and flowers — but also design elements of the original Better Than Sex Mascara tube.
The box illustration was created by hand drawing hundreds of crossed hatched lines to mimic traditional engraving techniques.
Jerrod described the bottle as being absolutely beautiful, with Parisian architect detailing around the neck of the bottle, with a pink metal plate on the front of the bottle, to represent the colour and component of the name sake mascara.
The lid of the palette is a replica of Jerrod’s wedding ring, as he wanted the fragrance to be ‘romantic’ in pink, to complement the pink theme of the fragrance. It’s described as being sexy, modern, rebellious, feminine with a touch of masculinity.
- Top Notes: Passionfruit, Lychee, Fuzzy Peach, Luscious Citrus
- Middle Notes: Pink Magnolia, Jasmine, Vanilla Orchid, Black Rose
- Bottom Notes: Golden Amber, Patchouli, Cedarwood, Sensual Musk
Jerrod describes it as being floral, fruity, sugary and delicious, and it sounds like a beautiful fragrance. Jerrod did say it wouldn’t be launching until 2022, but it looks like it’s actually very soon, as it’s uploaded to the Too Faced website now, so it should be available in the coming days / weeks.
