As she revealed her debut collection of fragrances, Terry de Gunzburg told us that some of the five initial scents had been 14 years in the creation. Well, this renowned make-up artist – creator of YSL’s Touche Eclat and then of her own fah-bu-lous By Terry make-up line – is nothing if not a perfectionist.
Explains Terry: "I had to progress slowly in order to learn and understand about essences that felt right, which was a humbling yet enriching experience. I had to ignore the dos and don’ts imposed by trends or a commercial brief. Free from any restrictions, I have followed my instinct to create pure, original and extravagantly high-quality fragrances."
