Ashley Greene Isn’t The Only Big Thing Happening At Avon

Your Avon Mark catalog will no longer arrive with fresh-faced Lauren Conrad on the cover because “Twilight” star Ashley Greene is the new ambassador of the Mark brand. If you’re not familiar with Mark, then maybe Ashley will convince you to try the affordable cosmetics when her TV and prints ads launch this fall. But she’s not the only newbie arriving at Avon.

The company is also launching two new fragrances with fashion label Hervé Léger to be called Hervé Léger Femme and Hervé Léger Homme. A body-conscious Hervé Léger dress might not be in your budget, but now you and your boo can get that upscale smell without handing over major dollars.

Eva Longoria Parker’s Fragrance Won’t Make You Sneeze

Confession time: I’m a huge Eva Longoria Parker fan. Every Sunday during “Desperate Housewives,” my girl crush on Gabrielle Solis gets just a little bit bigger. But when I heard the news that she’s joining the celeb-turned-designer brigade and creating her very own perfume, I was a little disheartened. Unlike some actresses who turn to the fashion and beauty worlds to increase their financial portfolios, Eva did it for her allergies. A lifelong sensitivity to every perfume and a major passion for scents meant Eva had to get a bit crafty so the essence she designed wouldn’t cause her to sneeze. “I wanted something clean and fresh. Something that smelled like you just got out of the shower. And that’s how I came up with the scent,” she explained. The final product, called Eva by Eva Longoria Parker, has a warm, citrus bouquet that’s simple and ideal for daily wear. [People StyleWatch] Keep reading »

Don’t Read Your Magazine, Smell It

Personally, I loathe perfume ads in magazines. It’s impossible to tell what the scent actually smells like, because after languishing on the glossy page between a hundred other fragrances, the original essence is gone. But the magazine mono.kultur #23 decided that I’m wrong, and chose to create their latest issue entirely out of smells, as an homage to their feature subject, the Norwegian scientist and artist Sissel Tolaas. You see, her entire life has been devoted to the art of sniffing. No career counselor could have thought this up, but Sissel found a love for scents and went with it. So for the inventive issue, a total of 12 scents were infused onto the pages using microencapsulation, and release their aroma into the world once rubbed. Now, I’m all for innovation, and as we’re all well aware, glossies need to create new and different forms of communication to stay alive in these trying times. But reading a magazine through odors? That’s like asking for a headache. [PSFK] Keep reading »

Artsy Moment Of The Day: Maison Martin Margiela’s Trippy Perfume Vid


Feeling a residual high from 4/20? (Or maybe you never, um, stopped.) Zone out with this arty video promotion for Maison Martin Margiela’s new perfume, the one we told you about called Untitled. We have no idea what it’s supposed to mean, nor could we explain most of the imagery to you. Not because we’re baked, but because we think that’s the point. [Hint Mag] Keep reading »

What’s Up With Fresh’s “Cannabis” Perfume?

Fresh is a high-end beauty company known for incorporating natural ingredients like soy, sugar, and milk into its products. Good, healthy, wholesome stuff. So we did a double take when we saw this “Cannabis Santal Eau de Parfum.” Mary Jane, eh? Naturally, the perfume‘s ingredients aren’t remotely narcotic—it’s a blend of patchouli, vanilla musk, and other essential oils. However, the mixture does contain a “cannabis accord,” meaning a mix of scents concocted to “captures the raw sensuality of cannabis, known for its woodsy, musky properties.” Fancy walking around reeking of Eau de Stoner? (But, like, not really, dude.) [Neiman Marcus] Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: Balenciaga Paris Eau De Parfum

If you’re a lover of lady mags like we are, then you’ve probably noticed advertisements for Balenciaga Paris in almost every April issue. It’s kind of difficult to get the full effect with those paper fragrance testers so I got my hands on an actual bottle of this new scent. My first thought after the first spritz was: “old money.” Keep reading »
