Weekly World Fumes – September 6th,13th, and 20th, 2012

It has been a couple of slow weeks for perfume news, so I’ve combined 3 weeks.

Nikki Minaj Pink Friday perfume

Celeb Gossip:

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.

Serge Lutens Un Voix Noir

New Launches: 

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.

Perfume News:

I don’t have any!

pumpkin pie

EauMG Etc.:

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!

  1. I like the idea of an Elizabeth and James scent to match their line, but I’ll have to wait and see on the execution, especially if Sephora is heading this one. I like the Nicki Minaj bottle in that it’s so different from others out there. The gold and white masked feeling does bring to mind Star Wars, however.

    1. I love the Elizabeth & James line. I really don’t have an expectation for a fragrance.
      I like the Minaj bottle in a weird way. It’s “off” but at least it’s making a statement! And yes, it does bring to mine Star Wars 😉
