Luis said that there will be a new release in fall from the line. Try as I might, I couldn't get too much info out of him, but he did say that it will be a darker fragrance, and not floral.
Darphin: I did not know that Darphin had released fragrances. They have 3 and they are quite lovely. I couldn't find them on the website even, and do not remember the names. One was a lilac blend. Very airy and light and pretty. One is tea and a coffee note . Again, really nice. Very green tea more than anything. They retail for 75.00 for 2 oz at Bergdorfs.
Guerlain: Had the new Terracotta Spray tested on me. The SA sprayed all over my face, it dried immediately , and then she dusted on some bronzer powder on cheeks. The spray gave me a very tanned look, but not too overdone ( I asked some fellow shoppers what they thought). No orange -ness. It seems like a pretty good product. It also has SPF 10, comes in 2 shades and last for 130 apps. 54.00
Mayotte , the fragrance is a sort of new release from Guerlain. It was Mahora , and now is the same fragrance with a new name and in the bee bottle. This is a great frangipani based white floral. I was and am a fan of Mahora, but it didn't find an audience at the time. Maybe this time it will.
Iris Ganache is the new Art et Matiere fragrance. Not out yet, but a tester was available. I liked this, and was unsure due to the ganache chocolate note. It a light iris with a hint of ganache. It was the first frag. I tried so my memory of it is not of all the notes, but an overall one. It is very nice, but not overwhelmingly new or interesting. The fact that it is light was good, but it's not a full bottle fragrance.
Chantecaille: I tested the Corail powder that I posted about back in January. The one with the Coral Jeweled Compact. The Compact is by Jay Strongwater, and 550.00. You can buy just the powder in the plain compact for 90.00. I really wanted to think this was better than average colored powder, but it wasn't. Yes , it's nice, but not out of the ordinary
It was a nice Spring weekend and I was able to go to so many great stores and try new things. Many I have sampled and am ready to give impressions on.
One of the highlights was Bond 9. I got to meet Laurice Rahme, the owner and founder, and a lovely lady. She gave us a sneak peek at the new Bond 9 summer fragrance Coney Island. Save your pennies up, because this is one great fragrance. The notes are meant to be reminscent of a Margarita. It really does smell like that with other notes mixed in to give depth. Superb. It will come in a blue bottle as pictured here. She also hinted at a Gardenia perfume that may be coming in fall.
I will have info on upcoming products, on some of things I have posted on here before, bath products and more.
