World famous designer Zaha Hadid has teamed up with perfumer Anne Flipo created a curvy, fluid shaped dark glass container for Donna Karan Woman, a new fragrance for women from Estée Lauder. The bottle’s design demonstrate the flexibility of Zaha Hadid’s design strategies and how they can be applied across a spectrum of objects that vary greatly in scale.

According to Architectural Digest, the architect was noted for saying that “the bottle’s dark, translucent qualities offer a sense of mystery that awakens our curiosity.” They also captured Anne Flipo’s explanation of how the scent was developed:

“Starting with an earthy base of sandalwood and Haitian vetiver, Flipo added contrasting elements to evoke the complexity of the female psyche. “I first thought about everything a woman embodies and then picked notes to match these characteristics,” she explains. Aldehydes and pink pepper top notes add a “whirl of liberty,” while softer florals like jasmine, rose, and violet are a romantic, ultrafeminine touch.”
