Darling - Kylie Minogue's first fragrance
Everybody's darling, Kylie Minogue, launches her very first fragrance.

Sensational singer, successful businesswoman, sexy, playful, glamorous yet down to earth and approachable Kylie. Men like her for her sweet, sensual charm ... women for her strength and talent. Her universal appeal makes her a role model, a global icon that transcends borders and age groups.

As in all areas of her life, Kylie has taken a passionate approach to fragrance and worked in close collaboration with Coty on the development of darling. She says, "The launch of my new fragrance coincides with a new chapter of my life." It captures the many elements of her personality and all the contrasting qualities she shares with today's contemporary woman.

Sensual, sweet, seductive, strong, glamorous and delicate in equal measures -- Kylie is irresistible. A woman whose warmth forges a tremendous bond with her fans, as the popularity of her latest Showgirl concert tour reveals.

Kylie's outstanding qualities are reflected in one fabulous fragrance. An evocative, enticing essence called darling, representing the richness, sensuality and glamour that is Kylie Minogue.

Darling, the fragrance
A glamorous Chypré-Floriental, as multi-facetted as Kylie herself.
Top note -- A sensual, floral bouquet with a heady, sparkling yet sweet top note of passion fruit, freesia and lychee.
Heart note -- The heart is brimming with a delicate, feminine floral blend of lily and boronia.
Base note -- The base note projects the sensual, enveloping essences of sandalwood, amberwood and vanilla.

The Perfumer's Note - Thierry Wasser
"I wanted to combine strength and movement in order to reflect the intensity of my encounter with Kylie through this fragrance. The freshness of starfruit and the fondant of lychee express her optimism and energy. The powdered sweetness of Boronia and the creamy force of Australian sandalwood evoke the memory of a beloved country: Australia. The transparency of freesia and the delight of lily reveal a contrased femininity. The greediness of vanilla and the sensuality of amberwood show the affection aroused by talent and passion." --Thierry Wasser

Darling, the bottle & box - Designer: Lutz Hermann, LH Design

Darling in Kylie's Words
The name... "I chose the name Darling because it can represent any thing. It represents femininity but with a glamorous overtone. It's also a term of endearment and affection which I use for my favorite people."

The fragrance... "Through this fragrance, I wanted to express today's women multi-faceted personality. We can be playful, adventurous, serious, funny and sexy and that's what Darling represents -- the many sides of Kylie and today's woman."

The design... "I love the advertising campaign. It was great to work with William Baker as he's a good friend as well as my personal stylist. He knows me so well and I feel he's captured the real me on the visual."

Kylie Minogue Darling Perfume

Fragrance News - Dollars & Scents -- Don't judge a book by its cover -- or a perfume by its bottle. Fragrance experts single out the best scents under $60 (and explain why "smelling like cheap perfume" isn't the insult it used to be).

Britney Spears Midnight Fantasy, $37.50 -- Dark berries, powdery florals, and amber are the hallmarks of this sexy scent, which Chandler Burr, curator of the department of olfactory art at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York City, calls "absolutely extraordinary." Whatever your feelings about pop music, many of its stars are cranking out superior fragrances, such as Midnight Fantasy, J.Lo Glow (a zesty, clean floral), and Kylie Minogue Darling (sugared fruit). Much of the credit goes to the perfumers behind them, who also created the luxurious Fresh Cannabis Santal and Chloe Love, Chloe.
