Celebrity makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury is breaking into the perfume world with her first fragrance, and she has called on supermodel friend Kate Moss to act as its face.

Named 'Scent of a Dream', the fragrance has been described by Tilbury as "mind-altering" and "fleurotic". A photo posted to Instagram by the cult beauty star reveals a delicate prism-like glass bottle in the shape of a spinning top, with Moss in the background sporting a glamorous combination of iridescent metallic disco eyeshadow and berry-toned lipstick.

The scent, according to WWD, has been a long time in the making. The site reports that Tilbury, who hails from Ibiza, first concocted the fragrance herself at the age of 13 using materials procured from the island's markets. Top notes include lemon, peach, black pepper, saffron, mandarin and bergamot, middle notes feature jasmine, frankincense, violet and patchouli and base notes of fire tree, Iso E Super, hedione and ambroxan round things out.

Moss will star in a photographic and video campaign shot by Sølve Sundsbø and Baillie Walsh respectively, expected to launch from August.

The news is the latest milestone in Tilbury's rapidly growing beauty empire, built upon the premise of making makeup accessible via set looks and video tutorials, occasionally starring her high-profile fashion friends. Recent attention-grabbing moves include the launch of a lipstick with Kim Kardashian this June, as part of her 'Hot Lips' range, which saw her create 16 lipstick shades inspired by various celebrities.

Scent of a Dream, which was created with the help of Francois Robert, president of the Technical Commission of the French Society of Perfumers, will launch on August 15 at charlottetilbury.com, Selfridges and the London Charlotte Tilbury Covent Garden Beauty Boudoir. Launches in Nordstrom, Bergdorf Goodman and Net-a-porter will follow in September.
