Donna Karan DKNY Women is the holder of 2001’s FiFi Award for Best National Advertising Campaign for a Women’s Fragrance and was introduced in 1999. The fragrance is a floral fruity which captures the essence and energy of New York City to deliver you a feminine rich scent built with innovative ingredients. DKNY Women represents the perfect choice for a day to day stylish fragrance that reflects the elegance of the woman who wears it.
The construction of this perfume starts off with a brisk shot that combines notes of green tomato leaves, red orange juice and a hint of cold vodka. Then, as the fragrance advances into the mid development phase, an aroma of flowers enters the stage, thanks to a blend of water lily, orchid and daffodil. This beautiful and unusual structure dries down slowly within a couple of hours, into an enchanting mix of white birch and tulip that leaves a pleasant trail on the skin.
The flacon that holds DKNY Women was designed by the artist Stephen Weiss, the late second husband and co-CEO of the Donna Karan Company and features a perfectly cut structure made of white frozen glass that brings to mind a Manhattan sky scraper. The perfume and the brand’s name are printed vertically in grey, while the bottle is topped by an elegant rectangular stopper.
The most recent version of the video advertisement has the models Anja Rubik and Sasha Knezevic (who are married in the real life) as central characters in a New York love story that takes place in a cab.
