Azzaro has launched a new travel-retail fragrance for men, Jet Lag:
The juice, created by Givaudan’s Olivier Pescheux, is an invigorating airy citrus, with energising properties that reportedly help banish fatigue. The scent opens on notes of lemon, grapefruit, cardamom and pepper, leading to a heart of patchouli, cedar wood and amber. The base is a blend of incense, cinnamon and a tea-rose accord.

Jade Goody, the former dental nurse who became a star after appearing on the UK reality series Big Brother, has released her first perfume, Shh...
The scent itself was created by Robertet and features top notes bergamot and cassis with heart notes of pink pepper, cinnamon, cumin, freesia, jasmine, rose and iris. The drydown is woody with notes of sandalwood, patchouli, vanilla, amber mosss and musk. (via cosmeticsint)
I rather doubt this one will appear in the US, but who knows. Update: Jade Goody Shh... was pulled from most perfume stores after she was accused of making racist comments.
Oh, good grief. What kind of name is 'JetLag'? They might as well call it 'CarSick' or 'Hangover'. I cannot imagine anyone proudly confiding that they're wearing 'JetLag'. I also can't imagine anyone, no matter how reality-TV addicted, wanting to smell like Jade – plump, pig-nosed and alarmingly uneducated. It's the end of civilisation…has to be!
I thought it was a very odd choice for a name too…you'd think they'd want something that sounded energizing(?)
Don't know a darn thing about Jade Goody. If she is at all famous in the US, it has gone right over my head…
Jade's new Shh perfume is currently outselling all star brands including Beckham, Lopez et al. Current first year sales are projected at 1.7m USD
Wow, that is impressive. Still doubt it will make it to the US — really don't think most people here know who she is.
I reside in Toronto, Canada recently purchased JETLAG in Buenos Aires, Argentina airport. The person who says that this fragrance makes one sick, must be more sick than they think in the head, not having a clue what a good fragrance is. The first time I wore this was the very BEST Men Parfum I have ever tried. So very soft aroma takes you to a whole different world.
Thanks for commenting, I still haven't tried it and may never manage to if it stays a travel retail exclusive.
