Celeb Hairstylist Kristin Ess Has FINALLY Released A Full-Sized Perfume

Nov 12, 2019

Last winter, while on a Target run, I was aimlessly roaming the beauty aisles ISO nothing in particular when I accidentally stumbled across a random, standalone vial of rollerball fragrance from Kristin Ess’ hair care brand. What, you may ask, does a hair care brand truly know about fragrance? Oh, just a lot! The luxurious scents are one key reasons I’ve become such a loyalist of this celeb stylist’s stellar product assortment.

The aforementioned rollerball was looking squarely at me to rescue it. I had inexplicably missed the fact that the brand had issued perfumes as part of its holiday offerings — but quickly scooped up this leftover. I was already a devotee of the brand’s Reviving Dry Shampoo, The One Signature Hair Water, and Weightless Shine Working Serum because they are affordable, effective, and smell like heaven in a bottle. I legit bury my nose in my hair and inhale several times through the day — the products make my strands smell that freakin’ good. I was thrilled to now have a different version to swipe across my skin. There was no way I was leaving this baby behind.

While I unconditionally love the rich, heady, and gloriously winter-ready aroma, I was forced to use my rollerball somewhat sparingly since I didn’t want to run out. However, Kristin Ess Hair has issued a full-sized bottle of its unforgettable The One scent for Holiday 2020. And it’s just $20.

Kristin Ess The One Signature Fragrance is a limited edition and is currently available at Target stores and online. You can’t get it anywhere else.

Notes of ambrette seed, magnolia, pear water, violet, orris butter, New Caledonia sandalwood, and white amber mingle seamlessly to create this divine scent. It’s rich and musky, so if you like gourmand, bakery-inspired fragrances, this is not for you. I actually tend to like sweet, vanilla-based scents, so Kristin Ess The One is a delightful departure for me. I cannot wait to spritz it on the back of my knees, on my neck, behind my ears, in the crook of my arm, in my hair, and on my clothes through spring. Seriously, you can blast the fragrance into the air and then walk through the cloud.

The simple, downright pretty bottle will look gorgeous perched on your vanity, too.

Kristin Ess has other holiday offerings available, such as a detangling brush and sectioning clips. The Black Friday promotion is also one you simply cannot snooze upon. From November 28 through December 1, all hair tools are a whopping 30% off. That’s an amazing discount, especially since the brand’s curling irons and wave wands will give you those beachy ‘n’ bedhead-like bends that Ess’ stunning celeb clients, such as Jenna Dewan and Lucy Hale, are known for. You’ll look as though you just strutted out of your salon but with minimal time investment. That’s a win-win.
