In the fashion world, many designers and design houses make signature scents to go with their clothing lines. Carolina Herrera is one of these designers. With the help of famous perfumers worldwide, she creates unique scents to delight the senses. There are a few things that you should know when you are shopping for your next perfume purchase.

Who Is Carolina Herrera?

Carolina Herrera is a fashion designer raised in Brazil who later moved to New York City to launch her fashion company. With no formal fashion training, she started with her first runway show in 1981.

Although she had little interest in fashion originally, she designed her first dress at the age of about 14 after seeing a fashion show with her grandmother. It wasn’t until the 1980s that she officially decided to begin designing fabrics and clothing.

She believed that all great designers should have a perfume line to go with their unique style of clothing. As h designs became popular, she branched out, launching the Carolina Herrera Perfume and cologne line in 1988 in cooperation with the Spanish perfumer Puig. Today she has around 212 perfumes available for purchase.

Depending on the release date and type of perfume, you can purchase them as a consumer or retailer, sometimes at a discount.
