Friday 18 June 2010
July is the month of perfume releases from the musical crowd: Mariah Carey, Avril Lavigne, and Mary J. Blige all launch new fragrances next month.
International Halal Showcase
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
The world's largest professional platform for halal products will see the launch of non-alcoholic fragrances by the French Atelier des Parfums.
Make Up In Paris
The first edition of promising new beauty fair Make Up in Paris will take place at the Espace Pierre Cardin, focusing on innovation, creativity and trends.
Singer Avril Lavigne is releasing Forbidden Rose in July, featuring notes of red apple, winepeach, black pepper, lotusflower, heliotrope, shellflower, praline agreement, sandalwood, and vanilla (but no rose). Prices start at €17. Other celebrity fragrances scheduled to launch in July include Mary J. Blige's (My Life, in collaboration with Carol's Daughter), Mariah Carey's new trio of perfumes, Ribbon, Honey, and Mine Again (all part of the Lollipop Bling line, selling at $35 each) and Bruce Willis's first signature perfumes.
Paco Rabanne will launch a flanker to his bestselling 1 Million fragrance, called Lady Million. The new scent will be both floral and woody, featuring notes of bitter orange, raspberry, neroli, jasmine, gardenia, patchouli, and amber.
Thierry Mugler, the maker of the iconic Angel and Alien perfumes, will introduce Womanity in July, a scent that the New York Times described as "a commingling of figs and caviar, a sweet-salty combination as treacly as a chocolate-covered pretzel." Prices range from $58 to $98.
