Michelle’s HERNY ROSE also officially introduced their 7th scent — Smyth, from their 100% transparent fine fragrances collection.
Michelle Pfeiffer’s Henry Rose Nails The Perfect Summer Scent With Smyth
Imagine the perfect summer scent: it’s clean, fresh, and light and lifts you up even during the most sweltering of days. Henry Rose—the transparent fragrance line founded by Michelle Pfeiffer made with ingredients that are not harmful—may have nailed it with its new scent Smyth. The crisp scent has top notes of Granny Smith apple, watery notes, and melon-pineapple sorbet; mid notes of apricot nectar, star jasmine, and white tea; and dry notes of sheer white woods, sandalwood, layered musks, and amber.
The scent was inspired by an apple tree in Pfeiffer’s Northern California home. “In my home in Northern California, there is a 100-year-old Granny Smith apple tree in the front yard,” said Pfeiffer. “It’s small and looks like something out of a fairytale. Every year, it produces so many apples that its gnarly limbs drag the ground from the weight. When it is in bloom, it gives off a light, sweet smell that usually means spring has arrived and summer is just around the corner. Smyth is really the essence of what that scent is like for me.”
“When approaching the idea of a fruity fragrance for Henry Rose, I immediately thought of the Granny Smith Apple,” added International Flavors & Fragrances (IFF) perfumer Yves Cassar. “I like the gender free aspect of the Green Apple, which is very commonly used in both men’s and women’s fragrances, and I wanted to place it at center stage encompassed by a delicate construction of sheer ingredients that give it a beautiful transparency, backed by subtle woods. It is a gentle dialogue between this fresh fruity top and a deep layering of woods, enveloped in slowly unravelling musks.”
The non-gendered Smyth has all the elements of the perfect summer scent and will keep you smelling fresh and clean even during the hottest and most humid days of the year.
Pffeifer founded Henry Rose after her own decision to stop wearing fragrance after discovering the multitude of bad ingredients. Henry Rose is free of all endocrine disruptors, parabens, phthalates and carcinogens. “I had given up wearing fragrance altogether, and I missed it,” said Pfeiffer. “I finally decided to create a line that could compete with other premium fragrances in the marketplace, but was fully transparent with its ingredients and didn’t feel like a compromise.”

I can’t describe how much I LOVE this picture of Michelle & Lucas but I really love the atmosphere and the art direction, there’s still no official release date yet but hopefully a teaser will be dropped out sometime very soon.
According to Collider by Allie Gemmill:
Michelle Pfeiffer & Lucas Hedges Are Sad Socialites in ‘French Exit’ First Look
Step right up because your first look at Michelle Pfeiffer and Lucas Hedges in the dark comedy French Exit is finally here. The forthcoming Sony Pictures Classic movie is directed by Azazel Jacobs and penned by Patrick DeWitt, who also wrote the novel this movie is adapted from. Fancy that!
Sony Pictures Classics casually dropped what might be actual, Louvre-worthy art onto our Twitter timelines on Tuesday afternoon. This first-look photo from French Exit gives us a full view of Pfeiffer and Hedges as the forlorn, fallen socialite mother-son duo of Frances and Malcom Price. Oh, and that cat? Yeah, that’s Small Frank, the Price’s cat who will be voiced by Tracey Letts. The photo teases what is, most likely, an early event in the French Exit story, which follows Frances, a tart, possessive Manhattan socialite, and her emotionally-stunted adult son Malcolm as they abscond from New York City to Paris following the scandalous death of her husband.
This first image from French Exit is truly a breath of fresh, especially considering it’s been more than a year since we first reported on the project. Jacobs and DeWitt previously collaborated on the 2011 feature Terri, co-starring John C. Reilly. The two have remained creatively connected since then, with Jacobs giving Reilly a copy of DeWitt’s 2011 novel The Sisters Brothers, which the actor then bought the rights to, produced, and co-starred in. I love me a dynamic duo, so I’m fascinated to see what this here French Exit will look like with Jacobs and DeWitt re-teaming — and adding in a little Pfeiffer and Hedges for good measure.
