Your new signature scent for spring has arrived, and it’ll make you feel good too

18 October 2021

A little spritz of Girl by French beauty and fashion house Rochas goes a long way to doing good.


There are so many reasons why we’re enveloping ourselves in Girl by Rochas this season. Set to be the signature scent of spring, this feel-good Eau de Toilette is akin to powerful words of affirmation, boosting our wellbeing while being eco-conscious. 

In a world where society is forever telling us who and what we should be, Girl perpetuates an empowering message, encouraging us to feel good about our bodies, bask in nature, honour the environment, and cherish true friendships. Girl inspires us to say goodbye to artificiality, photoshopped moments, and meaningless storylines, instead favouring our authentic selves.

The scent 

Breathtakingly delicious, there’s something to be said about the power of a mood-boosting fragrance. Upon first impressions, Girl hits you with an aromatic dose of feminity and freshness. Its hero ingredient, neroli extract, is proven by neuroscience to relax the brain, not to mention it is 100% natural, responsibly sourced, and completely traceable. Crisp blackcurrant bud and sparkling pink peppercorns uplift the senses, while the radiating aromas of orange blossom, jasmine, and velvety orchid penetrate the senses. Lastly, a lingering hint of vanilla warms the skin. You’ll want to savour this feel-good moment—and hope it lasts forever. 


Girl is for individuals who consume intelligently for a better world. The fragrance’s formula is vegan, and consists of 90% natural ingredients. It’s also free from colourings, stabilisers, and UV filters typically found in traditional recipes, thereby minimising allergens. 

The understated and minimalist bottle design of Girl embodies the ethos that ‘less is best’. The bottle is made up of partly recycled glass and packaged in the bare essentials: responsible, traceable, and FSC-certified card. 

Importantly, Girl is socially responsible—1% of its revenue is donated to 1% For The Planet, an international organisation that safeguards the environment. 

Ultimately, Girl is a sweet breath of fresh air that invokes positivity and joy. Like Girl, we’re not perfect, but we stand for something. It’s this signature attitude (and scent) that inspires us to do and feel good.
