It’s not the first time we get to see Julia Restoin Roitfeld in advertisement, for their Fall 2008 campaign Gap decided to choose Julia along with other fashion world persona such as Cecilia Dean from Visionaire.
This is a new image for Jil Sander, the brand is used to tranquil thinking mood models while Julia is smiling in the the fragrance ads, shot by Jan Welters.
“Jil is like a subtlety between a woman who seems very tough, very confident and, at the same time, a woman who is actually very feminine and fragile,” said Restoin Roitfeld. “That’s also how I feel about myself sometimes and what I wanted to show in the pictures.”
The scent will come in 30-ml., 50-ml. and 75-ml. versions for 48 euros, or $68.25 at current exchange; 68 euros, or $96.70, and 88 euros, or $125, respectively.

This is not the first time the name Jil has been used for a Jil Sander perfume. A previous scent called Jil came on the market in 1997 but has since been discontinued.
