Weekly beauty agenda: June fragrance launches
Friday 28 May 2010
The perfume releases for June include Jennifer Aniston's first signature fragrance, Puma's Animagical and a new scent by Comme des Garçons. Also coming up in beauty: the US Fifi awards and Australia's Hair Expo.
Hollywood actress Jennifer Aniston is introducing her first fragrance, Lolavie. Set to go on sale exclusively at London's Harrods department store this June, Lolavie will become available in other countries such as the US later in the year, priced from $46.50. According to the actress, her scent will be "sexy and clean" and "floral, but not too flowery" - a discreet "nonperfume perfume."
Hotel heiress Paris Hilton will release her tenth fragrance, Tease in June. Miraculously, the scent is both "based on her fascination with Marilyn Monroe" and "more evocative of who Paris Hilton is." Notes include Fuji apple, white peach, bergamot, white flowers, amber, blonde woods and warm sand, and prices start at $45.
Puma's new fragrance, the Usain Bolt-fronted Animagical scent will hit stores in June. Inspired by "the magic of Africa," the floral and fruity perfume will be available for men and women.
Lancôme will introduce a variation of its Ô de Lancôme scent, called Ô d'Azur in June, with summer notes including lemon, rose, and peony.
Dior has added a third fragrance to its Escale series, due out in June: Escale aux Marquises is based on the tiare flower, combined with notes of blood orange, pink pepper, cinnamon, ginger, coriander, lemon peel, and vanilla.
Comme des Garçons will launch its latest perfume, Wonderwood, at London's Selfridges and Dover Street Market on June 24. Described as "wood gone mad" by the avant-garde makers behind the brand, the scent will include notes of Madagascan pepper, bergamot, incense, nutmeg, cedar, sandalwood, and vetiver.
