Over the years our laces, with their intricate depictions of the natural world of leafy flowers and stems, have provoked me to wonder how they would smell if they came to life. This was the inspiration to create a Hanky Panky fragrance, a scent that would blend the intimacies of fine lingerie and perfume, both very personal signatures.
The challenge was to create a perfume that reflects our fresh, flirty, sexy lingerie and this was eventually achieved by combining classic feminine florals with a fresh, modern accent. Working with the world-class perfumer, Symrise AG, I learned that because fine perfume, like fine lingerie, is only as good as the ingredients or material it is made from, it was critical to use the finest absolutes. (Absolutes are the most concentrated and aromatic form of the fragrant compounds extracted from plants.)
Fine perfumes endow each wearer with a unique, personal scent. Everyone who wears Hanky Panky Eau de Parfume will have her own personal relationship with it because the many facets of a quality fragrance will surface at different times on different skin. No two women really ever wear it the same. Each morning is an opportunity to Indulge Your Inner Flirt™.
When Hanky Panky introduced the World’s Most Comfortable Thong® in 1986, we changed the way women dressed. So who’s to say we can’t bottle the intimacy of lace?
