Carolina Herrera is an iconic and established brand, developed by none other than Carolina Herrera in 1980. Carolina initially developed her fashion house for her various designs, but it wasn’t long until she decided to delve into the world of luxury items such as perfumes and colognes. The very first fragrance the brand produced was the Carolina Herrera for women in 1988.

Powerful, Spicy & Warm

Sensation of Glowing Summer
Judging from the blue bottle, the title of the fragrance might come off as odd. However, the Orange Affair, which launched in 2017 is more than just the orange we know. It’s a floral, citrus paradise.
