Since partnering with international fragrance powerhouse Coty Inc. in 2005, Kimora continues to captivate the fragrance world with her bold new fragrance, DARE ME. This captivating and flirty scent is the essence of independence, designed to encourage girls and women of all ages to “own the catwalk and take center stage.” The packaging taps into the fun, edgy and fabulous fashion that is at the heart of the Baby Phat brand. It dares to be noticed.
The luminous floriental fragrance opens with an intriguingly smooth coconut top note that blends into a heart of velvety blackberry crème and vanilla orchid with a sophisticated warm drydown of crème de musk and sandalwood. The fragrance is complemented with unabashed packaging and inspirational messaging that dares women to be fearless, smart, glamorous and sexy.
As a mother, a successful entrepreneur, philanthropist and style icon, DARE ME is the first fragrance to fully express Kimora’s dedication to inspiring young women to play the game of life by their own rules. Kimora noted, “I wanted to create a fragrance that makes women feel like they can conquer anything their hearts desire. To me, DARE ME, is the absolute essence of girl power. I went from being a shy teenager to the woman I am today by daring to be bold, fearless and comfortable in my own skin. My new fragrance embodies all of these aspects of how I want women to feel and I can’t wait to share it with my fans.”
“Over the past 5 years, Coty and Kimora Lee Simmons have been working hand-in-hand to create a fashion-forward fragrance portfolio that embodies Kimora’s natural charisma and over the top lifestyle,” stated Steve Mormoris, Senior Vice President of Global Marketing at Coty Beauty. “Now, with the launch of her newest fragrance, Kimora offers a new twist on her existing fragrance collection that captures the fun, sexy and youthful spirit of the Baby Phat Fashion Brand.”
