Laura Marano's exciting new fragrance line just hit stores, and her three custom-blended scents are absolutely to die for. So obviously, we had to get the scoop on what went into the amazing collection straight from Laura herself. TWIST chatted with the Austin & Ally star at the recent Nintendo 3DS Girls Love Gaming event, and she dished all the details.
"I never expected to make a fragrance," Laura tells us. "It’s not something when you’re like a little girl and you’re like ‘One day, I hope to make a fragrance.’"
Although creating fragrance line wasn't a longtime dream of hers, she was totally down as soon as the idea was pitched to her.
"I got approached a few months ago, and I liked the idea. But I think what really took me and got me decided was not only all the creative control," she explains. "But also, you know, I kind of came up with this idea for the packaging of ‘Inspire kindness.’ And each scent has a different like fortune cookie ‘inspire kindness’ tidbit, which I think is so important and so lovely."
When it came to picking the scents, Laura says she knew exactly what she wanted.
"My favorite smell is vanilla, so I wanted everything to be vanilla. I have three different names – three scents. It’s Kiss You, Hug You and Love You. So ‘Hug You’ is a more simple vanilla. ‘Kiss You’ is like vanilla mixed with like cotton candy. And then ‘Love You’ is vanilla mixed with like a floral scent."
So cute! Laura tells us that picking 'Kiss You' and 'Hug You' came easily to her, but choosing 'Love You' was a bit tough. So how did she ultimately decide? By asking other people for help, of course.
"They actually sent scents to my house. It was like a little scratch-and-sniff," she says. "I asked my girl who was doing my hair and makeup. I’m like, ‘Which one do you like?!’"
As if the fragrances aren't enough to be thrilled over, the packaging seriously rocks too. Laura went for retro inspired spray bottles, which we totally love.
"The packaging is really fun and cute to me," Laura tells us. "It’s super classy and old fashioned."
It's great to see that Laura had so much creative control for this fragrance collection, and we are so proud of the wonderful outcome.
