Singer Billie Eilish first ventured into the world of perfume in November 2021 with Eilish N°1. 

She recently released the second titled Eilish #2. Speaking to Harper's Bazaarof the inspiration behind the fragrance, she said, “The things I was thinking about for this one were rain, water, and a kind of silver, metallic, dark world. I just wanted rain and water, but also drops and mist – anything that looked like something wet, basically.”

And to add: “I had a lot of inspiration in dark and abyssal places, and this is what I saw in my head. I also really liked the idea of ​​pine, woods, pepper and things like that, which were my main inspirations for Eilish #2. I've always had an iron deficiency, and so when I was younger – and honestly still today – I really liked the taste of metal. It has this specific, almost sweet, but dark, cold taste, and I wanted Eilish No. 2 to feel kind of like in a weird way.”

Describing her second fragrance as sensual and mysterious , she specifies that if the perfume is housed in a female bust, like the first, this time the bottle is black as opposed to gold. Talking about the process of creating a perfume, the 21-year-old said it was helpful to have more knowledge the second time around.

“It was good to already know in what I was getting on board and knowing what was coming, so I was ready for all the things, all the little steps in between,” she revealed.
