Prada Luna Rossa

I was sent a sample of Luna Rossa ($62-102), the new Eau de Toilette from Prada (named after the brand’s America’s Cup Challenge team), and before I could even smell it my dad spotted it, opened it, and staked his claim to it! That’s what I get for stopping by my parents place for dinner […]

Versace Launches Eros

It might be obvious, but the new Versace men’s fragrance, Eros ($62), isn’t one I’d recommend a straight man go check-out. If you’re gay – and perhaps even if you’re a woman – however, it’s a nice, albeit somewhat aggressive scent….it’s inspired by a Greek God after-all! The first men’s scent that Donatella has launched […]

Marchesa Parfum D’Extase: Garden of Delight

Displaying your perfume is hardly a new concept, but never before has there been such a beautiful bottle for the task. Would you expect anything less from lavish Marchesa? Parfum D’Extase’s bottle (a decoration for your vanity if nothing else) is the perfect presentation of what the brand is all about – luxury, decadence, femininity, […]

Dries Van Noten by Frederic Malle

Dries Van Noten and Frederic Malle have partnered up to launch the designer’s first scent ($185-$265), which is the first of a series of scents Malle is doing based on “extraordinary individuals.” The pairing couldn’t be more perfect. The two brands are so nsync aesthtically in fact that the first store outside of Paris to […]

Jimmy Choo Eau de Parfum

I’m not big on snakeskin so the box that Jimmy Choo Eau de Parfum ($98) came in didn’t immediately appeal to me, making it all the more of a pleasant surprise to find the above chic bottle inside. I was expecting a more aggressive scent because I think of the brand as having such a […]

Best Beauty of 2012: And the Award Goes to…

Beauty products are like tech products – they just get better and more effective every year. I mean did you know that CC cream is already a thing? I feel like BB just made her first appearance! Some beauty buys can be trendy (dark ‘90s lip liner hasn’t aged so well), but these top choices […]
