Share Article

"Pretty Woman" immediately brings to mind that iconic Roy Orbison song and, of course, the favorite fairy tale movie. And now, the power of that name will translate to a new fragrance from Barbara Orbison, entrepreneur, publisher, business woman and wife of the late great Roy Orbison. This signature fragrance is now launching in exclusive boutiques and specialty retailers across the country and abroad.

Pretty Woman Perfume by Barbara Orbison

I believe that within every woman there is a pretty woman and my signature fragrance helps bring that out that inner confidence and spirit so they feel strong, empowered, sensual and pretty.

Barbara Orbison, wife of the late, great Roy Orbison is pleased to introduce "Pretty Woman Perfume."

"It has been a life-long dream of mine to create a perfume that speaks to women everywhere," comments Barbara. "I believe that within every woman there is a pretty woman and my signature fragrance helps bring that out that inner confidence and spirit so they feel strong, empowered, sensual and pretty."

Like the notes of a song, the notes of Pretty Woman Perfume open to reveal a complex melody of florals, spices and woods. Its crisp, luminous bergamot top note evolves to reveal a full, vivacious middle note accord of stargazer lily, red rose and carnation. The fragrance's base note accord of fresh amber, patchouli, vanilla, atlas cedar and sacred incense combine with a lingering everlasting warmth and harmony.

Barbara has been involved in every step of the development from conception to launch. She worked closely with perfumers to formulate the exact scent she desired. She selected the bottle from the prestigious Versailles de Porchet in Paris and worked closely with the graphic designers to craft a package and label that reflects the pure, elegant essence of the fragrance.

Pretty Woman is currently launching in specialty retailers including Studio Beauty Mix at Fred Segal in Santa Monica and at Korres in NY, Planet Blue, Private Edition in Nashville, Stanley Korshak in Dallas, Woodley and Bunny in Williamsburg, The Peninsula Hotel in L.A. and it is available on line at The suggested retail price is $80 for 1.7oz.
