The unisex eau de toilette will be available in a 100-ml. square bottle priced in the United Kingdom at 59 pounds, or $95 at current exchange, or in a more feminine ribbed 100-ml. flacon for 71 pounds, or $114.

Mood boards and wigs help determine a perfect style and color. The consultation, which is priced at 75 pounds, or $122 at current exchange, finishes with a blow-dry master class.
