A summery, citrusy, coconut-milky scent inspired by coming of age novels / 1.7 oz
Ellis Brooklyn Fawn is, to us, the perfume equivalent of a sundress. Neroli, coconut milk, and vanilla mingle with bergamot, edited florals, and musk for a fun, summery, and multilayered scent that reminds you of something that you can’t quite put your finger on — approachable, yet intriguing.
Like all the Ellis Brooklyn scents, Fawn is free of endocrine-disrupting phthalates and parabens, but far more sophisticated than the typical essential-oil fragrances that are typically the only option if you're avoiding those questionable ingredients. It’s no wonder the Ellis Brooklyn scents are so excellent: they’ve been created by Bee Shapiro, a beauty and style writer for The New York Times, Vogue, and others, and famed perfumers like Jerome Epinette and Pascal Gaurin.
Bee describes Fawn, a collaboration with Gaurin, as follows: "Sun-warmed skin, a breeze of spring citrus and the addictive milky tones of coconut, Fawn is inspired by coming of age novels—how memorable and lingering they are—and the sweet innocence and underlying sexuality of growing up."
The phthalate-free fragrance, made in small batches in New York, is housed in an environmentally-friendly glass bottle from an Ecocert supplier; the biodegradable Bakelite compression cap is petrochemical-free. And it all will look gorgeous on your dresser.
