Tommy Hilfiger will launch his annual summer limited editions of Tommy this month. For 2007, the fragrances were inspired by Cape Cod. The men's version, Tommy Summer, embellishes the original Tommy fragrance with notes of sea air, mandarin, bergamot, seaweed, lavender, and the smell of the woods on Cape Cod. The women's version, Tommy Girl Summer, has strawberry, rhubarb, beach roses, magnolia, Cape Cod wildflowers and cedar. Both scents will be available in 100 ml. (via cosmoty.de)
Loewe will launch Quizás, Quizás, Quizás, a fragrance inspired by the song of the same name. The scent was developed by perfumers Carlos Benaim and Emilio Valeros:
The non-pyramidal composition combines red fruits with Italian lemon, Indian and sambac jasmine, rose absolute, underpinned by notes of patchouli, vanilla, amber, sandalwood and lavender honey.
It launches this month, but it doesn't look like this one will be introduced in the United States. (via cosmeticnews)
Embarrassing admission: I like Tommy Girl. I sometimes sneak into my daughter's room for a guilty sniff.
How do you think that Loewe is pronounced? I' m reading it as 'Quizzes, quizzes, quizzes', but there has to be some kind of Spanish pronunciation involving a lot of lisping and coughing up hairballs?
It is more like key-zas, with the accent on the second syllable.
I like one of the Tommys, and now I can't remember if it is Tommy Girl. But it probably is, right?
Thank you. A lot of spitting and dribbling…for me. I'm never sure when the 'z' becomes a 'th'..or is it the 's'?
Ah, I'm never sure either. It depends on where your Spanish teacher hails from. If you learn from someone from this side of the pond, you can hardly understand someone speaking Castilian Spanish. I just muddle though…the only language I come close to pronouncing correctly is English, unfortunately. And sometimes I mangle that too.
…and my ear worm of the day is now Doris Day…
a Castilian accented Spanish speaker.
Did she sing it too? Was trying to remember, but now I've got Que Sera, Sera stuck in my head
So many perfume lovers admire Loewe Quizas Quizas. I havent worn it, but it smells UNLIKE any other perfume. It is stunning in a way.
I have not tried it! It's hard to find Loewe here.
