Through all its ups and downs, I have to admire Kate Spade for maintaining an unwavering air of sheer giddy femininity. Think colored tights and sparkly heels, festive fêtes and tables for two. The same ideals of celebration are beautifully wrapped up in the brand’s new signature scent–its first major fragrance launch since 2002. As the press notes describe, this scent, created by Givaudan, is a true joie de vivre; floral lovers will love the feeling of being transported to a garden in bloom following a light mist–infused with a twist of fresh fruit. Among the notes are: pink watermelon, blackberry red currant, heart of orange blossom, star jasmine, tiare flower, sweet magnolia, drying down to musk and French macaroon. Yum!
The collection, launching nationwide in September, will include a 3.4 oz. eau de parfum, a 0.24 oz. roller ball, body cream, lotion and shower gel, ranging in price from $35 to $80
