Abbey Lee Kershaw may have missed out on the A/W 2012 runways because of a knee op, but the Melbourne-born model is still making a splash in the cosmetics world with a new trio of fragrances which she fronts — Flora by Gucci: The Flower Garden — hitting counter next month, along with a stunning ad visual. Of the scents, Gorgeous Gardinia, Glamorous Magnolia and Gracious Tuberose, Abbey Lee reveals her favourite as Glamorous Magnolia, saying: "As a child we had a huge and incredibly beautiful purple magnolia tree in our front yard, so this fragrance brings back a rush of gorgeous memories as soon as I spray it." Ahh. Good olfactory nostalgia.
Flora by Gucci: The Flower Garden collection launches on April 8. Stockists: 02 9695 5678.
