Gap unveils its 1969 fragrance!

This season, the brand known most well for their 1969 classic denim jeans is rolling out its new 1969 fragrance collection, and we have a feeling that this collection will be as favorable as the classic must have denim. Sorry guys, the Gap is only catering to women with this scent, but the fragrance is perfect for that girl you know who loves a citrusy, floral, yet woodsy smelling scent.  It's girly, it's sweet, and it's available at Gap stores nationwide.  Would you wear a Gap fragrance?

Dita Von Teese's New Liberty Perfume

Today is the day Dita Von Teese's fragrance launches! The very glamourous Dita Von Teese paired up with Liberty of London to create the scent, named of course after who else, herself, and will be the perfect addition to her already sexy products (her very own Louboutin shoe and Von Follies lingerie line).  This one however, is not just for 'showgirly' girls; she defines it as 'pink', and the bottle? "The bottle of Dita Von Teese is something you find in a black satin handbag of sophisticated women," she said.  "However the tassel and the small emblem, which is refined with a martini glass, feathers and a corset, speak in a subtle way to my Burlesque side."

Odin Fragrances Launches Pop Up Shop

Who doesn't love a pop up shop, especially one that is reflective of the Odin fragrance brand? Odin has recently launched a pop up shop in Manhattan that is set to stay open through Memorial Day and provides a quiet, sensorial space to take in the brand and reflect on it's surrounding art installation.

“A lot of the stores [where Odin is sold] tend to be crowded and noisy, but this gives a more isolated experience so [visitors] can focus on their own experience with the fragrance,” said Odin partner and Purpose-Built co-owner Larry Paul.

The pop up shop, only 400-square feet, features 'Odin bottles' suspended from the ceiling and is a heavenly experience. 

“We wanted an installation that was a very different experience for Odin,” said Paul Birardi, co-owner of Odin New York. “Odin packaging is very black, dark and moody, and we decided to flip it. Everything is white other than the product on display.”

Kiehl's Enters Into Fragrance Business

Kiehl's is stepping out of their skin care, hair care, and beauty shell and into the fragrance business.  A new Aromatic Blends line is due to launch in July and according to Chris Salgardo, the president of Kiehl's USA, “It’s an unexpected category for Kiehl’s, but it actually was inspired by our company heritage."

The new line will offer four scent blends: Orange Flower & Lychee, Vanilla & Cedarwood, Nashi Blossom & Pink Grapefruit, and Fig Leaf & Sage.  Kiehl's worked with three different oil houses to create the four scents, Givaudan, Firmenich, and Mane. Why not stick to one? “We worked with multiple houses because each had a specialty or major point of difference with the principal ingredient,” noted Salgardo.

Are you ready for what is just the beginning of Kiehl's fragrance collections?
