The founder of the Brooklyn-based fragrance studio Joya tells us how he got into the perfume business.

Jennifer Zuccarini’s resume was already ridiculously impressive before launching her own line last year. The ambitious designer cofounded the uber-seductive Kiki de Montparnasse before becoming design director at Victoria’s Secret—talk about lingerie street cred. But developing a line all her own was always the goal, and in 2012 she did just that with the launch of Fleur du Mal. More than just another lingerie line, Zuccarini’s vision was to create an experience that celebrates both getting dressed and undressing, and everything that surrounds it. We talked to her about how it all came about.
Here's a sexy little surprise to start off the day: For her first ever design gig, Julia Restoin-Roitfeld has designed a capsule collection of lingerie for Kiki de Montparnasse. As we reported back in September, Roitfeld mysteriously hinted that she might be working on a lingerie line, but nothing was confirmed until now, which is great because you'll only have to wait about a week to get your hands on the lacy creations. According to Elle, the collection hits stores next Wednesday.

Guests will learn "sensual techniques," learn about different "instruments of pleasure," and "explore fantasies with joy and abandon," while sipping on champagne and eating from a buffet of aphrodisiacs.
