Power couple Ciara and Russell Wilson partnered with Hampton Beauty to try their hand at the smell good industry.
The couple will release their new fragrance, R&C The Fragrance Duo, on November 17.
Lori Mariano, managing partner at Hampton Beauty, was elated about working with the couple.
We were very excited to collaborate with them. We were very much like-minded in our visions to bring this to market through an e-commerce platform.
Ciara recently announced the exciting news on her Twitter account.
The fragrance will include two different scents.
Ciara’s scent features pink peppercorn, peony, and sandalwood, and Wilson’s scent combines black tea, lavender, and musk.
Ciara and Russell created their fragrances during Ciara’s pregnancy.
During their interview with WWD, Russell joked that “Her nose was crazy!”
Ciara said she believes being pregnant gave her an edge up on the process, due to her senses being heightened.
I think I kind of had a little edge up on the process. I was able to truly smell, really smell.
The shape of the bottle is ill! It consist of two small cylindrical tube shapes wrapped around each other like puzzle pieces and link via magnet to create a larger, unified structure.
Ciara and Russell had fun going through the process of creating their scents and they both had an idea of what they wanted their scents to smell like.
Ciara wanted her scent to be distinctive and memorable.
I like scents to be distinctive. I want it to be memorable. I always think about the feeling that I get when I smell someone that smells so fresh….You remember that scent. It leaves a mark on you.
Russell wanted his scent to be sexy.
For me, I really wanted to put out something sexy. When you walk in the room, I think you want the man to bring a presence without overdoing it. That’s kind of something I’ve always wanted to feel.
The fragrances will be available to purchase exclusively at RandCFragrance.com for $90 (50 ml each).
A portion of sales from the product will be donated to the couple’s Why Not You Foundation, a nonprofit working to fight poverty while advocating for education and children’s health.
