In her decade as one of the world's most in-demand models, Anja Rubik has been the face of quite a few fragrances -- Chloé, Salvatore Ferragamo Signorina Eleganza, Fan di Fendi and Elie Saab to name a few. She's the fragrance world's dream --the perfect mix of high-fashion elegance and commercial sexy-- and now, she's looking to profit from her perfume prowess with the launch of her first fragrance, Original by Anja Rubik.

We know what you're thinking: Another celebrity perfume -- how good could it be? The answer: good. Really good, in fact. The subtle, yet sexy scent combines hints of lily, amber and green tea for a modern, unisex fragrance that, as Anja hopes, does more than just wear well -- it makes a statement. "It's about confidence to follow your dreams and your own path," says Anja of the message behind her scent. "I want it to trigger this feeling of empowerment."

We sat down with Anja to learn more about her fragrance debut, the scents that inspire her and why her perfume is just as much a nod to feminism as it is a must-have addition to your fragrance collection. To read our interview in full, click HERE!
