Quirky, fun, and inherently amazing.
Such is the time I had at a recent press event for the launch of Too Too, a brand new fragrance from the delightfully, inimitable, Ms Betsey Johnson.
Many might not know this about Betsey, but she herself was a dancer in her youth. Inspired by the glitz, glamour, and the costumes from her dancer days, she started her label over 30 years ago, eventually becoming the lifestyle and fashion icon that she is today.
The new scent, Too Too is also inspired by Betsey’s days as a dancer. A fun, fresh, floral fragrance described as bright and boisterous, Too Too is the perfect scent for the young, hip, fashionable woman. The notes include passion fruit, mandarins, ginger, and strawberry leaves, all resting on warm musk and vanilla, jasmine, Bulgarian rose, patchouli, and sandalwood. The scent opens up strong, and ultimately settles on the skin with a soft sweetness that is undeniably flirty.
Paying homage to the fragrance’s inspiration in dance, in the house were esteemed dancers from the Bolshoi Ballet Company, as well as dancers from the Stephen Petronio Company. Attendees were treated to performing art eye candy in abundance, which was only topped by Betsey herself launching into a full split after a performance by the Company. Classically fun, and classic Betsey, to be sure.
A frolic in fun, Betsey Johnson’s Too Too Fragrance launches officially in October, exclusively at Sephora.
