Crabtree & Evelyn will launch two new fragrances, Lost and Found, next month. Both scents target "younger women":
Lost is aimed at "the intuitive and confident girl who is waiting to discover the world" and features notes of ginger flower, pear, papaya with a heart of sea spray, cognac and orange blossom grounded in white amber.
Its sister perfume, Found, embraces a "fun and spontaneous sense of style" with a warm heart of cassis, bay rose and cardamom lightened with pink grapefruit, caramel and spun sugar. (via cosmeticsint)
Yves Saint Laurent has introduced YSL: Young Sexy Lovely, an Asia-exclusive fragrance:
The light and joyful Young Sexy Lovely is the result of a perfect blend of well-selected fruits. The aromatic recipe includes luminous Nashi pears, sparkling Italian mandarin and fresh blackcurrant. This fruity bouquet is then wrapped in a mist of cherry blossoms, transparent and light, a few Chinese magnolia petals here and there and the velvety scent of vineyard peach. The comfort of crystalline musks, the roundness of amber and the generosity of cedarwood also help reveal the tenderness and sensuality of this new eau de toilette. (via bangkokpost)
