Now we're talkin'! Samsung Mobile is taking fragrance to a whole new level, and quite frankly, we're loving it! Forget about spraying your perfumes from a bottle, atomizer, or rubbing it off from a solid stick...what better way to simply charge your phone for a glorious, fragrant scent?
THAT, my friends, is a true smart phone.
Samsung has put out a patent which entails a phone having the unique ability to emit perfume.
HOW will it work? It will contain a rechargable sponge that gets its smell back whenever you recharge it.
What do you think of Samsung's new patent?

Jean Paul Gaultier chose Agyness Deyn as the face for Ma Dame, his 2008 woman fragrance. Ma Dame is a fragrance which is described as a fresh floral scent that is electric and sensual, kinda like the face of the fragrance.
“There is a great deal of strength and a great deal of softness in the fragrance,” Francis Kurkdjian, Ma Dame's perfumer said. “The same could be said of girls today.”
Gaultier describes Ma Dame as the daughter in his collection of perfumes, “She is energetic, modern, and young in attitude, and that concludes the family.” ”Ma Dam is my type of woman—at the same time fragile and strong, like a tomboy that is a little androgynous in attitude so, you know, she can cut her hair if she wants.”

Natalie Portman is a natural beauty, a newlywed as of this week, and is now baring it all with Dior's new ad campaign for new foundation, NUDE.
We absolutely loved her in the commercial and ad campaign for Dior's Miss Dior Cherie fragrance, but we may just love this new daring, baring Dior Nude ad campaign more.
The actress stripped down to absolutely nothing but was very careful to not show the obvious. In the photo below, she is draped topless over a chaise lounge chair pulling her hair off of her face. In other close up shots, she is facing the camera with her arms and hair covering her chest. Modesty, classiness, and effortless beauty if you ask us.

Who other to embody that? Actress Gwyneth Paltrow, who stars in the ads of the fragrance in an asymmetrical, black Hugo Boss dress. She told WWD, “[Hugo Boss] came to me and approached me with the idea of the Boss woman, a very delicate balance of someone who’s hard working and focused but also soft and feminine at the same time,” said Paltrow at the launch at London’s Sanderson hotel. “I like that approach very much.…I’m a very hardworking woman, I’m a very loving mother, I’m a wife, I do a lot of different things and I think that the blend of femininity and strength is what really drew me to the [fragrance].”
The scent itself has white peach and aldehydes as top notes, jasmine and violet as it's heart, and crystal moss, warm woods, and sandalwood as it's base. The fragrance is planned to rollout this month in Germany and the UK and later, most likely this sprin, in the US.
