Redefine Wild. Reinvent Your Scent.
For Immediate Release --- May 10, 2018
A new independent fragrance Brand WILD SPIRIT to Launch July 14 in Walmart stores nationwide and online June 1 at walmart.com and wildspiritfragrances.com
Wild Spirit is the fragrance brand with real ingredients at real prices that celebrates your individuality- they believe what we put on our bodies is as important as what we put in them. That’s why their products are vegan, contain natural essential oils and are free of parabens, sulphates and dyes. They are also proud to be cruelty-free and made in the spirited USA! The brand was specifically created to democratize fragrance by crafting affordable luxury fragrances that give the value savvy beauty shopper an opportunity to explore new and exciting scent profiles and to reinvent their scent.
Wild Spirit was born from sister brand Raw Spirit led by general manager Joyce Lanigan and renowned fashion photographer Russell James. The fragrance collection consists of four scents, “Spring Jasmine,” “Driftwood,” “Chill” and “First Snow,” each embodying distinct personalities with seasonal attributes designed to resonate and connect with a specific consumer. The fragrances can also be layered, mixed and matched giving the consumer tons of ways to reinvent their scent by creating a new fragrance that’s personalized to them.
The names of the 4 fragrances each have double-meanings; Spring Jasmine, Driftwood, Chill and First Snow may sound seasonal, but the scents are versatile and can be worn all year round. The names are also metaphors that represent personality traits. The Spring Jasmine girl’s personality is likely to resemble the season of spring- peppy, cheerful and full of life. The First Snow girl’s personality is likely to be bold, fierce and cool much like the season of winter.
Each bottle features unique female influencers of diverse ethnicities, shot in natural backdrops, showcasing infectious personal style, reflective of each respective scent. The influencers featured include IMG models Ashley Moore

We invite you to reinvent your scent!” - Joyce Lanigan. “Let us redefine wild! To be a ‘Wild Spirit’ is to be true to you. It’s celebrating your individuality by embracing your authentic unique self.

We want to take the wearer on an adventure in scent that introduces new ingredients and aromas to their scent wardrobe.” - Gino Percontino, Wild Spirit Perfumer.
