Minimalists, please calmly glide into your functional slides and walk towards your nearest Sephora where you will, for a moment, have to deal with the glorious cacophony the rest of us love while you locate Derek Lam’s Rain Day.
Now you have obtained your signature scent; nice doing business with you.
Featuring just two ingredients and housed in a stunningly chic white cylinder, Rain Day is one of ten fragrances released by the American designer, recreating moments imagined through the window of his store on Crosby St Manhattan. As the name suggests, this pairing of Haitian vetiver and Tunisian neroli creates a beautiful sensation of a rainy spring day, wet pavement and clean skin, maybe a streak of sun between the clouds. Rain Day is urban, fresh and optimistic, simple but far from mundane. A signature scent for sure and one that could easily be layered with other fragrances.
