Judith Leiber Night, the latest luxe fragrance introduction from Palm Beach Beauté, is a glamorous, couture perfume, perfectly resembling the sparkle and allure of the designer’s handbags.

Developed by perfumer Richard Herpin of Firmenich, the inspiration for the Oriental amber was drawn from the famous Judith Leiber black Deco handbag that produced a dramatic and memorable statement.

“The scent was created by juxtaposing the drama of the handbag design with the absolute luxury that Judith Leiber stands for,” said Theo Spilka of Firmenich. “To illustrate these notes of sensual luxury, Richard used the highest extracted qualities of night blooming jasmine, peony, patchouli and amber materials among the spiciness of lilies, incense and a creamy wood accord.”

Joseph Messina of Joseph Messina Design developed the concept for the packaging and bottle design—a black-as-night opaque glass flacon embedded with Swarovski crystal stones.

“What I have is style, but I don’t have a style.” said Messina. “I like to create pieces that look like the designer I’m designing for. This bottle embodies the confident elegance and sensuality of the Judith Leiber woman.”

According to Harold Ickovics, CEO of Palm Beach Beauté, there are several new introductions planned to expand the Judith Leiber fragrance collection in the fall.

“Each introduction will reflect the sophistication, glamour and style of the Judith Leiber brand,” said Ickovics.

Judith Leiber Night was recently unveiled at Bergdorf Goodman in New York City, where Palm Beach Beauté executives met with the retailers and celebrated the launch and eye-catching in-store display.

Available this month in specialty department stores, the fragrance is priced at $115.00 for 1.3 oz. and $175.00 for 2.5 oz.
