This German girl loves me some Heidi Klum. I never miss an episode of Project Runway and I think she and Seal and so cute together. Coming from a German family myself I can see that she can be tough and bossy (like me) but also sweet and charming (like me) :) That said, I’m not a big fan of celebrity scents–it’s not that I’m too discriminating, Lord know I don’t have a sophisticated nose, it’s just they are usually too… well too. Too sweet, too spicy, too cloying, TOO something!
Here is what Ms. Klum has to say about creating Shine:
The Process: “It’s been a lot of back and forth with the perfumers because I’m quite anal. I couujldn’t really describe it as flowers. It was more emotions, feelings.”
The Scent: “I didn’t want something that was super-sweet. I wanted sensual. That was my main word. I didn’t want clean. I want to smell like a woman. I wanted something that is long-lasting but not hovering.”
The Name: “Why did I call it Shine? My husband had a little bit to do wiht it. I get dressed a lot for my husband. A lot of times he’d say ‘You’re beautiful. You shine.’ It’s a very beautiful word, a positive word.”
On Fragrance: “It kind of competes your look, even though you can’t see it. It’s kind of like the underwear that you wear that people can’t see.”
