Pucci is headed back into the fragrance market with Miss Pucci, a new women’s scent due at the end of August.
“This scent is true to the origins of the House of Pucci,” said Laudomia Pucci, image director for the fashion company and daughter of the company’s founder, Emilio Pucci.
Miss Pucci is a sparkling floral musk fragrance concocted by François Demachy of LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton and Christine Nagel and Benoit Lapouza of Fragrance Resources. The scent’s top notes are of magnolia and Sicilian winter lemon; its heart is of Turkish rose, seductive Comoros ylang-ylang, Tunisian orange blossom and voluptuous Arabian jasmine, and its drydown is of Texas cedar, powdered iris and white musk.
The 50-ml. fragrance will retail for $74.
The bottle, designed by Ora Ito, is a clear bottle with a Pucci-print overlay in the brand’s signature orange and coral, encased in metal. The center of the bottle is meant to represent a stained-glass window into the brand, said Isabelle Gex, managing director of Parfums Luxe International, a division of LVMH, which comprises the Pucci and Fendi fragrance businesses.
In the U.S., the scent will be available exclusively in about 250 Sephora doors in August.
While executives declined to discuss sales projections, industry sources estimated that Miss Pucci could do $1 million to $2 million at retail in its first year on counter.
In 2007, Pucci revived the Vivara fragrance Emilio Pucci created in 1966, which was on counter until about 1986. In 2009, a trio of scents was launched under the Vivara Variazioni moniker — Sole 149, Acqua 330 and Sabbia 167.

Spotted last night at the @erdem x @hm launch event: Kate Bosworth, Rashida Jones, Kirsten Dunst and Selma Blair. The party, which took place in LA, also marked the opening of their pop-up shop. “I was interested in creating a collection that wasn’t in any way disposable. It was about pieces you’d create and keep forever, things that have a permanence to it,” designer Erdem Moralioglu said. #wwdeye (📷: Katie Jones)
Renee Zellweger in yellow in 2001 and again in 2017. Chosen as one of the 12 @pantone Leading Spring Colors (and dubbed “Meadowlark”), it only makes sense that the bright hue stands the test of time and is making a resurgence this season, seen already on stars like @blakelively and @gigihadid.

As one of the most recognizable models in the world, Christy Turlington Burns has an insider’s view of the fashion industry and the allegations of sexual harassment swirling around it. “I can say that harassment and mistreatment have always been widely known and tolerated in the industry. The industry is surrounded by predators who thrive on the constant rejection and loneliness so many of us have experiences at some point in our careers,” Turlington told WWD, along with her suggestions for how the modeling world should protect younger women and men.

24-year-old Jean Prounis is redefining the rules of jewelry. Formerly a studio assistant to Jemima Kirke and a design apprentice at Ghuran, she focuses on handcrafted subtleties and ancient goldsmithing techniques. “There was a really sterile feel in the environment and I wanted to have jewelry with character that shapes how you wear it everyday,” Prounis said. Each piece is hand made in New York, either by Prounis or three other jewelers in the district. #wwdfashion
