Gwyneth Paltrow has launched her first fragrance.
The Oscar-winning actress - who has already brought out her own range of skincare and make-up - has created her first scent, which she claims is free of artificial ingredients and has healing properties.
She told ELLE.com: ''Fragrance which I've used up to this point is actually really at best not transparent at all and at worst very toxic.''
So Gwyneth decided to create her own ''sophisticated, complex, beautiful, and also completely non-harmful fragrance''.
Edition 01 fragrance and candle is the first in a series of scents inspired by the four seasons, with this one being winter.
Explaining her decision, the Goop founder said: ''I like the cosiness of winter, and the family time that comes with it. Everyone is inside and together and curled up on sofas reading.''
Gwyneth worked with Douglas Little to create a smoky, layered mix of cypress, frankincense, labandum, vanilla, clove leaf, juniper, and styrax tree bark.
She hopes the smell will make you ''recall sitting by the fire place in a library''.
And speaking about the ingredients, Gwyneth revealed: ''One of the most amazing things about all these barks and herbs and things that grow in nature is they do all have, from the mystical point of view, healing properties.''
Gwyneth also revealed how she spritzes her fragrance twice a day - once in the morning and once in the evening - and sprays it on her left wrist before rubbing it on her right and behind her ears.
And she always lights a candle ''an hour before sunset''. She added: ''It's part of my evening ritual, having a smell in the house that's warming. I like to have a demarcation between the day and the nighttime, so I'll light some candles, have a glass of wine, and I always have a bath.''
