Fashion designer, stylist, model, rock star girlfriend, and, now, perfumer, L’Wren Scott seems set to take on the world with the unveiling of her fragrance created and sold exclusively (well, at least for now) for Barneys. The perfume, fittingly called L’Wren Scott, marries hints of absinthe, marigold, heart of tuberose, curry, clove buds, star anise, jasmine, germanium, mandarin, and coriander for a sensuous yet still subtle scent.

Scott worked with Raif Schwieger, the man behind scents like Hermés Eau de Merveilles and Yves St. Laurent Baby Doll, to create her perfume. But in true Scott fashion, she did her research and came prepared with ideas of what she wanted and didn’t rely on him to produce a scent just so she could slap her name on the bottle—even if it is a scarlet toned bottle.

This isn’t Scott’s first time at the cosmetic rodeo, either. Having created a holiday collection cosmetics line for Lancôme in 2010, Scott knows what’s up when it comes to playing the limited edition field. And between working on her own line, styling the Rolling Stone’s 50th anniversary tour, dressing stars for the red carpet, adding eyewear under her name, and now her fragrance, it seems the designer has her hand in every facet of the fashion world and isn’t slowing down. Grab her new perfume while it’s available and be prepared to drop $195 for the 3.4 ounce bottle.
