Donna Karan will launch DKNY Summer, shown at right, a...
...“spirited twist” on the original DKNY fragrance, the limited-edition scent is said to represent “summer in a bottle”. The juice features notes of blood oranges, chilled vodka, red thyme and tomato leaves, on a base of white birch and tulip tree wood. (via moodiereport)
DKNY Summer is available in 100 ml Eau de Toilette.
Men's skincare line Nickel has released their second fragrance, Eau Maximum. Described as a "treatment fragrance" for men, it was developed by perfumer Jean Pierre Bethouart. The notes include grapefruit, orange, cinnamon, spearmint, rosemary, sage, thyme, nutmeg, coca leaf, tea leaf, cedar, patchouli and white musk. Nickel Eau Maximum is available in 40, 75 and 125 ml Eau de Soin. (via osmoz, sephora.fr & nickel)
Guerlain Muguet, a fragrance with lily of the valley, jasmine and sandalwood, will be sold at Guerlain's Paris flagship store on one day only: April 29. There are only 190 bottles, so get there early if you must have it. According to Beauté Conseils, it is a creation of Jean Paul Guerlain, but I believe it is a reissue (in honor of its 100th anniversary) of a 1906 fragrance by Jacques Guerlain; perhaps Jean Paul Guerlain is responsible for the current formulation.
As previously reported, Revlon will launch Flair, "its first launch in the selective fragrance segment since 1982", this summer (launch put off until 2007). Here is the bottle (see picture at right), in case you were dying to see it. (via cosmeticnews) Update: the launch of Revlon Flair was postponed after Revlon experienced serious financial difficulties.
