Coming this month from Aramis, Aramis Classic Reserve, a new limited edition variation on the original 1964 Aramis fragrance for men:
The company compares the fragrance to a bottle of vintage wine or aged scotch. "We harnessed the most premium ingredients from the original Aramis Classic fragrance to create an unparalleled luxury scent," explained Trudi Loren, vice president, global fragrance development worldwide, Aramis and Designer Fragrances.
The notes include citrus, juniper, cinnamon, sage, myrtle, clove, thyme, cumin, jasmine, galbanum, aged woods, amber, patchouli, moss and leather.
Aramis Classic Reserve will be available in 100 ml Eau de Toilette. (via cosmeticsinternational)
And coming soon from Demeter, Frozen Margarita:
...Margarita mixology is simply: 3 to 2 to 1. That is, three parts tequila to 2 parts triple sec to 1 part lime juice (FRESH lime juice, in our version!). No sugar required. Just combine the ingredients in a cocktail shaker along with a scoop of ice, shake briskly a few times, and strain into a glass. Garnish with a bright wedge of lime, and Viola!
[...] It is crisp, fresh, cool and full of Fresh Lime citrus-an escape from the mundane, anytime and anywhere.
Demeter Frozen Margarita will be available in 15 ml Cologne Mini-Splash, 30 or 120 ml Cologne Spray, and in matching bath & body products and Room Spray. (via press release from Demeter)

Yay, you're back! What are your opinons on the Aramis line? I have yet to try any of them.
I liked the original Aramis, and LOVED Aramis Devin, but gosh — it's been YEARS since I smelled either. Will be curious to give this new one a try.
Took a quick spritz of the Classic Reserve today on the back of my hand, and sprayed the standard Aramis on my forearm to compare. The Classic is more boozy and more mellow, and I like it better. But its longevity and silage can't match the original, which has a lovely dry-down. I like the Classic Reserve better, but don't know if it's full bottle worthy, especially when I already own Nicole Miller Men, Escada PH, and Michael by Michael Kors, fine boozy fragrances all.
Interesting, thanks! Will have to make another mall run to try it.
I wouldn't mind trying that Aramis CR as well. I've loved their men's Tuscany for many, many years, but have never actually tried the original Aramis.
And I don't think I ever tried Tuscany. For that matter, don't know where I'll find Aramis line, but guessing Macy's?
