CAMEO: L’WREN SCOTT ON HER COLLABORATION WITH CAUDALIE
Famed fashion designer L’Wren Scott fills Senior Writer Kelley Hoffman in on her collaboration with Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir Collector’s Edition—and her favorite ways to use it.
If you’re a devoted fan of Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir, you never forget your first spritz.
As fashion designer L’Wren Scott recalls, “I was in a French pharmacy in 1997. It was baking outside and I went in to buy a water spray to cool down and the pharmacist recommended it. I closed my eyes and he sprayed it on my face.”
The result? She puts it simply: “SOLD.”
Launched in 1996, the natural part-serum, part-toner mist of grape pulp extract, rosemary, lemon balm, peppermint, orange blossom, benzoin, and myrrh quickly became a cult favorite of actresses, stylists, models, and the like. As Scott explains, “It is very addictive if you like to feel constantly refreshed.” And, well, who doesn’t?
“Close your eyes and use it in the morning. Then [use it] to set your makeup. Mid-day as a refresher instead of a coffee. In the evening to wake up a bit before going out. And on airplanes at all times,” she says, adding, “I also use it as a stress reliever—I spray this on in the office and take a deep breath and relax and then deal with whatever the excitement or problem is at that moment.”
Lucky for Scott, Caudalie’s founder Mathilde Thomas discovered Scott was a fan, and the two women met for tea and discussed a collaboration. Thomas wanted to create a special collector’s edition that would speak to her fashion industry fans, and decided Scott was just the icon to outfit her bottle with a new look.
Today, Sephora brings you the product of Scott’s obsession—but now it’s an objet d’art available to all.
