Up Close and Personal with Halle Berry

The fragrance perfectly marries the opposing fragrance facets, enveloping the masculine fougere accord with a luscious feminine blend of violet flowers and mimosa, one of Halle’s favorite flowers, and a presence in all of her perfumes. A rich, warm center is surrounded by delicate notes and a bubbly ozonic top accord, it melds seamlessly into the skin and leaves a complex and intriguing aura. The result: a woodsy floral fougere that is utterly modern and original. Closer by Halle Berry borrows from the masculine and is perfected for women.


Closer by Halle Berry


Known for her impeccable style, radiant skin, and being classy in every sense of the word, Halle Berry is an inspiration and a role model to many. She is the epitome of talent, beauty, and sophistication. I usually don't jump at the opportunity to try out celebrity-branded perfume. Yet, I couldn't resist trying out this perfume since I knew I wouldn't be disappointed.

Like Halle, this perfume is strong and bold, yet feminine and sophisticated. The box playfully depicts this, because she is wearing a man's white oxford button-down adorned with her monogrammed initials and tie, a sliver of her black, lacy bra showing, Halle stands provocatively, eyes steadily gazing at the camera, a pair of bare, muscular male arms wrapped around her waist. “I wanted to create a unique fragrance for women that would also appeal to men," says Halle Berry. "Scent is very closely linked with desire and attraction and I love the idea that a fragrance can bring a man and a woman together. Closer creates a new level of intimacy through the power of scent."

You can find Closer at drugstores and department stores throughout the country.
