The Body Shop will launch Moroccan Rose (aka Rose du Maroc, shown at left) in February for St. Valentine's Day. In addition to the rose, the fragrance features lemon, spices, vanilla and musk. In Eau de Toilette, and I'll add the sizes when I can find them. (via cosmetiquemag.fr)

Avon has introduced Wish of Luck, a fourth fragrance in the series that started with Wish of Peace, Wish of Love and Wish of Happiness. Wish of Luck is described as "a refreshing blend of green apple and sparkling florals", and is available in 50 ml Eau de Toilette. (via avon)

I love the bottle of the Moroccan Rose!
It's really pretty
the avon bottle & the juice look very much like chanel chance eau fraiche
Yea seriously. It's almost identical except for the metal band around the outside of the bottle.
Yeah, a bunch of people pointed that out when the first Avon trio launched last year. But I seriously doubt Chanel was the first to use that bottle shape!
I'm seeing a serious rise in apple-scented fragrances. Licorice, too. I may have to step away until all this fades. Love apples, hate it in perfume. Licorice? Someone else can have my share. All of it.
I like the minimalist bottle, though.
I´m buying it just to collect the bottle
I think along with antique collection in the living room, it would be nice to have a history of perfume bottle collection in the bedroom Besides, I find moroccan scent mixed with rose, a bit intriguing… Must get this one, even just for presents.
I hate apple scents. No. 1 in the hate list is Be Delicious by Donna Karan. It just doesnt like my body chemistry–.- theyre at war forever and ever. I can buy a bottle if proceeds go to war torn areas.
Wonder if Chanel will follow suit and sue Avon.
It's reasonably priced, why not?
Don't think there's anything distinctive enough to sue for — it's just a bottle shape, and doubt Chanel was the first to use it.
Really? Apple's been around for awhile, but not sure I'm seeing that much more of it — except in the sense that there's more of everything since we've so many launches. But maybe I'm just not counting!
I'll take the licorice though
But Nina Ricci is suing the makers of Twilight for their bottle design, no? Or maybe in that case the similarities were just too great.
But that was a pretty distinctive bottle, and they copied it even down to the placement of the “leaves” on the top. This is just a round bottle…and again, doubt Chanel “owns” this shape or was the first to use it.
That's a good point–there is more of everything, so there's more of apple. I'm a trainer, and I buy a lot of whiteboard markers when I see them on sale–and the ones that smell changed their green smell from mint to green apple recently. ARGHHH. I already gave up the black ones because they smell of licorice.
Oh my — see, I'm not tracking the scented whiteboard marker angle, LOL…I would not want my markers to smell like green apple!
