Viva la Frida Vida!
This perfume celebrates the life of Frida Kahlo; the woman and artist, her suffering, her Mexican heritage and her love of nature.
Frida was feminine, fearless and a revolutionary; she cross dressed, smoked cigars, and has been a part of pop culture for over 50 years. A world-travelled sophisticate who had love affairs with both men and women, Frida remained happiest at Casa Azul, her traditional family home.
Tuberose, a flower that the Aztecs called the Boneflower, is an important note in this perfume as an homage to Frida’s brutal calamities and artistic transformation. Other notes include the hibiscus that she wore in her hair as well as the tropical blossoms and plants of Frida’s garden. The fragrance also devotes close attention to other details of Frida’s life, such as the heat of her native Mexico City, the smells of her cigarettes and her heavy hair.
Frida Eau de Parfum is exquisitely crafted, using a very high percentage of pure extraits, natural materials, and proprietary blends.
All bottles of Frida Eau de Parfum are attractively labelled and the 1 oz. bottle is adorned with tiny gold-colored Milagros*.
*Milagros: In Spanish, the word milagro literally means miracle or surprise. Milagros are religious folk charms that are traditionally used for healing purposes and as votive offerings in Mexico and Spain. They are frequently attached to altars, shrines, and sacred objects found in places of worship, and are often purchased in churches and cathedrals, or from street vendors.
