In launching its latest female fragrance, Woman, Ralph Lauren has chosen actress Jessica Chastain to personify the perfume.

Woman Intense is a floral oriental fragrance created for and inspired by the woman who lives & leads with intensity. She is boldly authentic, a true original. She leads like a woman”, says Ralph Lauren.

The aroma is a fusion of warm, white florals and delicious black vanilla. Tuberose reveals its many facets of solar warmth and floral creaminess.

Jasmine Sambac intensifies the white floral heart with an opulent and sensual touch, while orange flower brings a sparkling freshness.

Rich Sandalwood and delicious black Vanilla brings a warm and spicy sensation, reinforcing the addictive sensuality of the florals.

In an interview in the Ralph Lauren magazine, Tyler Thoreson asks Jessica Chastain what drew this discerning actress to the ‘role’ as the face of Woman perfume franchise. Here’s a snippet from that interview.

Jessica Chastain imbues every role she plays with an imitable mix of power and grace. The same is true of her offscreen pursuits, from serving on the jury of the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, where she eloquently called for stronger female characters, to the presence she brought to her time in front of Steven Meisel’s camera in her latest role, as the face of Ralph Lauren’s newest fragrance campaign.

In speaking with Chastain, it’s immediately clear that she’s not simply advocating for women’s rights—she’s advocating for women, period. Women at all levels, from all walks of life, and their ability to chart their own paths, to write their own stories.

All of which made Chastain a perfect choice to represent Woman, Ralph Lauren’s newest fragrance, which is inspired by the qualities of power, grace, and strength that Chastain embodies. It’s a celebration of women like those whom she’d like to see more of on the big screen, who “have their own agencies, who don’t just react to the men around them. They have their own point of view.”

Chastain offers her point of view on what it means to be a strong, successful woman today—and the face of Woman by Ralph Lauren.

“The Ralph Lauren woman to me is contradictions. She’s modern, but she’s also timeless. And she’s graceful and strong. She’s sensual and sophisticated. She’s from different times. And she’s unique. And that’s why it’s so exciting to be the face of this campaign, because we’re in a time where femininity is being redefined. And I feel that the Ralph Lauren woman does that”.
