It has been a couple of slow weeks for perfume news, so I’ve combined 3 weeks.
Finally the notes of the Nicki Minaj Pink Friday perfume are available. It will include notes of star fruit, mandarin, boysenberry, lotus flower, jasmine, vanilla, carmelized pear, musks and woods.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen will be launching an Elizabeth & James perfume with Sephora in the spring of 2012.
Estee Lauder will launch a new perfume, Very Estée, in October. Notes listed include lotus, freesia, cassis, pink pepper, Bulgarian rose, Rose Petal NaturePrint® (I got to smell this aromachemical in August!), Gardenia Brazil Natureprint®, jasmine, cedar, cashmere and musk.
Jil Sander will launch Everose. This is a pink juice with white pepper, grapefruit, rose, jasmine, raspberry, cashmere woods, patchouli and vanilla.
Serge Lutens has launched Un Voix Noire. It’s gardenia.
Swarovski launched a limited edition perfume, Swarovski Edition, that is exclusive to Swarovski boutiques. It contains notes of clementine, red currant jelly, wild roses, gardenia, white musk and cedarwood. The 1.7 oz bottle retails for $70. The bottle is pretty. <via press release>
There will be a new Van Cleef & Arpels, First Intense, yep, based on the 1970’s classic. It will contain notes of mandarin, bergamot, jasmine, white frangipani, mimosa, iris, vanilla and praline. As a lover of the original First, I am not optimistic. But, I did wake up on the wrong side of the bed today.
I don’t have any!
It’s been three weeks. I can’t remember what happened. I’ve been busy. I’ve also been craving “fall” fragrances – ambers, spicy scents, gourmands. And I’ve been craving pumpkin items. I’ve baked pies and pumpkin pie cake. I have also came to the conclusion that I don’t like pumpkin spice lattes. They are too sweet. But, I like pumpkin spices.
Until next time, thank you for watching!
