FOF Lisa Hoffman, wife of A-lister Dustin Hoffman spent her child-rearing years traveling the globe with her celeb husband, loving her role as a full-time mother and wife. But once the kids were grown, she longed to indulge a new passion and start a fragrance and beauty line. This time, she'd have to make her own way. "Dustin's very supportive and would help me in any way that I asked," said Lisa in an interview with FOF last year
. "But really, the beauty business is very much a woman's world."
In 2007 she launched her fragrance line, Lisa Hoffman Beauty. Lisa’s perfumes are all inspired by exotic destinations she’s visited, and each scent comes in four variations for different times of day: morning, day, evening and bedtime. Immediately upon its release, her fragrances were welcomed with accolades--the “Newcomer of the Year” award in 2008 by Women’s Wear Daily
, two consecutive Allure Best of Beauty
awards in 2008 and 2009 and her fragrances “Madagascar Orchid” and “Japanese Agarwood” were nominated for FiFi awards alongside Acqua di Parma, Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel, and Tom Ford.
But, Lisa didn’t rest on her laurels--instead, the FOF got to work on her next product--fragrance jewelry, "a new way to wear perfume that puts you in control," says Lisa. "On when you want and off just as easily." The fragrance jewelry, launched at the end of 2011, is comprised of earrings, pendants and bracelets featuring a round charm “featuring a proprietary delivery system that slowly releases perfume as...exposed to air,” according to Lisa’s press materials. The design for the fragrance-emitting charm was inspired by a pair of Victorian era earrings given to Lisa by her husband, Dustin. Already, the fragrance jewelry has been picked up by HSN and nominated for a FiFi award. Lisa says fragrance jewelry will particularly appear to women over 50. "As we age, we are more apt to develop sensitivities and allergies," she says. "I can’t tell you how many times women approach me and are so thankful they can actually wear fragrance without it touching their skin."
So, what's Lisa's favorite scent a la mode? "My daughter was just married and I’m still reeling in the romance of the occasion--Madagascar Orchid, my current favorite just smells like love."
