In regards to working with the iconic brand, Lively said in a statement, “It is a pleasure to collaborate with Frida Giannini. I admire the qualities of the Gucci Première woman and feel honored to represent the fragrance.”

The scent is comprised of top notes of bergamot and orange blossom, middle notes of white flowers and musk and a base of leather and wood.
The new scent will be launched worldwide starting in July 2012, accompanied by a print campaign shot by Mert & Marcus. The commercial film for the fragrance was directed by Nicolas Winding Refn (who was awarded best director for Drive at Cannes) and will be presented during a special event at the Venice Film Festival in September.
