Why We Love It

A scent of cool air, pale sun, new life unfurling on the forest floor, this mystical perfume channels the energy of spring: sensual heat against cool, damp air. Shiso leaf (also known as perilla) is the unexpected star of this scent: It has a slightly spicy/fresh characteristic that’s green, earthy, and delicate all at once. Its complex simplicity is similar to Ikebana, the art of Japanese floral composition: The shiso note is closely hinged on the other notes, so the scent begins simply and then slowly opens up into spicy greens, crushed stems, and ancient exotic woods.
Goop Fragrance, a collaboration between Gwyneth Paltrow and star perfumer Douglas Little, takes the concept of niche artisanal perfume to an enchanting new level, with scents that are not just not-bad for you, but that harness the mystical, homeopathic, and Ayurvedic benefits of pure plant essences. The scents themselves—rendered as perfumes and candles—are complex, sophisticated, sexy, and wildly original, composed using the same process used by perfumers hundreds of years ago, before the synthetic chemical industry took over fragrances.
Launched in the fall of 2008 out of Gwyneth Paltrow’s kitchen as a homespun weekly newsletter, Goop is a lifestyle brand with its roots across six key pillars: Wellness, Travel, Food, Beauty, Style, and Work. Goop has created a new standard in beauty, simply called “clean,” with a luxurious, high-performance skincare line made from organic ingredients, a regimen-based vitamin program, and a gorgeous line of fragrances, crafted from entirely natural and powerful components.
