Perfume coverage in the January issue of Allure (which is surely the thinnest in recent memory?), and please comment on any fragrance coverage you've seen in other fashion & beauty magazines lately:
Cover: Eva Mendes.
Scent strips: nary a one! I've been subscribing to Allure for several years now, and this is the first "unscented" issue I've seen.
Editorial coverage: The Beauty Reporter section includes a "Smell This" feature in which random passersby comment on the new C-Thru fragrances (sold at Walmart, p. 28) and a blurb on Ralph Lauren Love ("The $2,200 Scent", not sold at Walmart, p. 30).
That's it! The recession has arrived at Allure in full swing, apparently. The entire issue is 112 pages.
