After spending 35 years styling models for photo shoots and dressing the most formidable women in the world – including Laetitia Casta and Gisele Bündchen – New York-based fashion icon and stylist, Linda Rodin, sought a new path. Linda had always been devoted to natural skincare, and she often returned home from exotic beaches and far-flung photo shoots with essential oils and other local essences. Back in her Manhattan apartment she began concocting her own perfect elixir.

“What I longed for was something far simpler – products for the here-and-now, that caress the skin noticeably and without any delay. Nothing out there quite did that,” Linda says today. In 2007, her dream elixir, a signature Jasmine & Neroli face oil, launched an eponymous line of luxury skincare and lifestyle products. Models, makeup artists, and everyday women fell in love with the sophisticated oil and an international cult following quickly grew.

Since the Jasmine & Neroli Face Oil, the RODIN olio lusso line has grown and now includes three scented face and body oils – Jasmine & Neroli, Lavender, and Geranium & Orange Blossom – that leave skin looking and feeling instantly supple and nourished. Similarly scented soaps, candles, and hair products have also been created from the various oils which contain ingredients sourced around the world to assure the finished product is of the utmost quality. Linda’s focus has always been to make the best version of the most essential products, which led to the five richly-pigmented RODIN olio lusso lipsticks and lip pencils that are key to her signature look: natural but strikingly lovely. RODIN olio lusso exudes the easygoing Italian beauty that has long inspired Linda. As the celebrated beauty entrepreneur says, “There’s beauty in simplicity.”
