Aerin Beauty Limone di Sicilia

«My new citrus floral fragrance was inspired by the sparkling scents and quality of light that can only be found in Sicily. Limone di Sicilia evokes that same uplifting radiance with an artisanal blend of Bergamot and Muguet de Mai paired with Lemon Primofiore. It’s as joyful and vibrant as the island itself.» – Aerin Lauder

AERIN Beauty‘s newest perfume is inspired by golden sunlight and the many lemon groves that dot Sicily’s stunning landscape. This light and airy fragrance opens with citrusy notes before revealing its floral heart. The velvety base notes will linger on your skin – enhance the aroma with the coordinating body cream.

Luminous White Floral
TOP NOTES: Bergamot, Lemon Primofiore, Italian Mandarin
MIDDLE NOTES: Egyptian Jasmine, Rose Centifolia, Pink Pepper

Jo Malone’s Newest Scent: Blackberry & Bay

Blackberry & bay

Jo Malone‘s newest scent is called Blackberry & Bay. Think about childhood memories of blackberry picking with stained lips and sticky palms – the scent of innocence.

TW_JMBlackberry_R21F11

Master perfumer Fabrice Pellegrin, who shares his time between Paris and Grasse, where he was born as the son of a perfumer, found the inspiration for this beautiful, different new fragrance “out of rambling, autumnal country walks in deepest, mellowest autumn; of blackberry picking in overgrown English woodland; of foraging for perfectly ripened blackberries in rustling hedgerows. I have always wanted to create a fruity fragrance that captures the richness of red and black berries and so I embarked on this journey to create a scent that is full of juicy sweetness, bursting with the sparkling tartness of just ripe blackberries, while playing with the green, leafy earthiness of the bay accord.”
Fabrice also created Paco Rabanne’s Black XS L’Excès.

Top notes: Blackberry and grapefruit
Middle notes: Bay and floral accord
Base notes: Vetiver and cedarwood

Available from September 2012.
In Switzerland at Globus Geneva and Jelmoli Zurich.

Cologne 30ml (CHF 68.-) and 100ml (CHF 130.-)
Body & Hand Wash CHF 64.- 
Body Cream CHF 99.-
Home Candle CHF 82.-
(All suggested retail prices)

I love this new addition to Jo Malone’s world. Try combining Blackberry & Bay with Lime Basil & Mandarin for added vibrancy with a peppery, citrus zest. Or layer it with Nectarine Blossom & Honey for sweetness with a green, herbaceaous edge.

Chanel N°19 Bath Line

PA2011_02_0012

In 1970, Henri Robert created N°19. A resolutely modern fragrance, with a daring combination of crisp green notes and powdery iris.

In 2011, Jacques Polge wrote a new chapter: N°19 POUDRÉ. An original score that gives N°19 a new powdery and musky facet.

In 2012, the N°19 bath line brings us three new ways to prolong the legen­dary accord of N°19 and N°19 POUDRÉ.

BODY CREAM

A true joy for the senses, its soft and creamy melt-away texture leaves an intense scent on the skin. The ideal way to enjoy its lingering fragrance all day long.
Glass jar, 150 g. CHF 106.-
Limited edition.

FOAMING SHOWER GEL

A bath and shower gel with an airy, generous foam. Light and fresh, its sheer texture leaves a delicate scent on the skin.
Bottle, 200 ml. CHF 60.-

BODY LOTION

Prolong the pleasure of bath time with this moisturising body lotion. Its light and exquisite texture is perfect for everyday use. The skin is soft and scented, subtly wrapped in the daring notes of N°19.
Bottle, 200 ml. CHF 68.-

Available in Switzerland end of April 2012.

Jo Malone Wild Bluebell

TW_312929-R25F04-d (Medium)

“An imaginative scent, drenched in the delicate sweetness of sapphire blooms. And wild, because it’s a pretty quirky take, inspired by a wickedly whimsical, contemporary fairytale starring Wild Bluebell herself. With persimmon, lily of the valley and eglantine, its lush transparency is decidedly naughty…but nice.”

Wild Bluebell is the newest fragrance from the world of Jo Malone and has just arrived on the market. Bluebell is a wild forest flower. Christine Nagel, the creator of the new scent, came up with an elegant, yet playful composition, combining fresh notes, flowers and spicy choord of cloves. A modern-day fairytale blend, a welcome addition for the Jo Malone fan.
