girlie_by_debra_rodman02NEW YORK, Dec 5, 2009 / FW/ — Multi-talented Debra Rodman, known for her writing and poetry launched her second career as a fashion designer designing Yogini, a fashion yoga line and her eponymous label focuses on girlie dresses. And now, she is adding a perfume to her line, girlie by debraRodman.

Described as “a provocative look at the eternal feminine state of being girly,” girlie by debraRodman is tough and tender, sweet and sexy, carefree and coquettish- it is the freedom to decide.

Each layer of scent has been carefully fused to paint the impression of a woman who equally loves her femininity as her edge, her seduction as her independence, her sexiness as her innocence.

The result is a modern yet classic scent built on ancient ingredients with dark and mystical tones to evoke energy and mystery.

Developed by Pierre Bourdon of Fragrance Resources, girlie is made in France and features Bergamot, Lemon, Clove Buds as top notes, Turkish Rose, Egyptian Jasmine and Chinese Magnolia as heart notes and Oud, Benjoin, Labdanum, Myrrh, Amber Musk, Vanilla as base notes.

girlie is available exclusively at and half of all sales will be donated to benefit the children who are attending The Man-Rod Academy in Lamu, Kenya.
