The Carolina Herrera 212 fragrance collection: history and heritage

A true icon of elegance, Carolina Herrera launched her career as a fashion designer in New York in 1981. More than 30 years later, her company continues to grow and innovate, dressing some of the world's most stylish and elegant women.

In 1997, under the creative directorship of daughter Carolina Herrera Junior, the first Carolina Herrera 212 fragrance was launched to a new urban generation of young, trendy, self-confident and sexy men and women.
