With one memorable quote from 90210 alum Jennie Garth, indie fragrance Child became a full-fledged phenomenon in the Nineties. Stingy divas were ripping off the labels in order to conceal their scent secret from friends.
This decade’s answer to Child may well be Clementine, a neroli-based floral scent that’s keeping Hollywood starlets smelling sweet. Creator Melissa Flagg, 41, spent her preteen spring breaks in Palm Springs inhaling the orange blossom-laced air during cool, lazy evenings.
“I wanted to capture it in a bottle,” says Flagg. Nicole Cardi, director of retail at Fred Segal Beauty, where Clementine roll-ons sell exclusively at $40 for 0.125 oz. and $70 for 0.33 oz., is pleasantly surprised that the fragrance has quickly collected a devoted following.
Lindsay Lohan, Michelle Trachtenberg and Scarlett Johansson have taken a liking to Clementine. Ironically, the star of the upcoming Nanny Diaries says the fragrance reminds her of her youth.
Cardi remembers one shopper in particular who dabbed on the scent, but didn’t buy it, only to come back after her husband insisted she become a regular wearer.
“I was touched by the fact that she lost her father, really before his time, and it was a real shock. She had two young children, she was married and she was expecting that she would have her own life for a good 25 years,” said Claire Foy about playing a young Queen Elizabeth in Netflix’s The Crown.

“It transcends the genre that is you think of a sci-fi show — you don’t expect it to be so profound or emotionally riveting,” Evan Rachel Wood told WWD of her Emmy nominated role in Westworld. styled by @samanthamcmillen_stylist 📸 @emmanmontalvan #emmys2017 #wwdeye
