We've heard it before, and we're hearing it again, but this time...is it more 'true' than before? Skip the gym and lose weight with a new slimming fragrance launched by French perfume house Robertet and Veld's. The fragrance named Prends Moi, meaning 'take me' in French, promises to slim and trim with pleasure.
How does it work? Apparently the parfum releases B-endorphins in the skin, which you may already know theoretically make you happy, which in hopes, will decrease the desire to overeat.
Other ingredients in the parfum include caffeine, carnitine, and spirulina extract. All of these together formulate into a "slimming complex" that works to activate enzymes involved in your body's ability to break down fat.
Will you choose to diet, exercise, or spray some perfume...that's all up to you...but do tell, which one would you choose? Would you try Prends Moi by Robertet and Veld's?
Now, more than ever, does it feel we are changing up our manicures to try the next trendy nail look. But when it comes to doing the switch-a-roo, we hate the fumes of the nail polish removers, don't you? That's why we were more than ecstatic to find out there are some polish removers that DON'T give off a nasty, alchohol chemical fume odor.
A few favorites include those that smell of floral bouquets, candy, and some fab fruity aromas.
Go ahead, pause, and take a sniff of roses. Deborah Lippmann has a product called The Stripper Lavender Lacquer Remover Twist-Lock Pump that is ever so lightly scented with a calming and hydrating lavender scent.
Essie, well known nail polish brand, has a 'Naturally Clean Purifying Polish Remover' that disgueses it's removing chemical scents with a sweet pea perfume.

The fragrance contains notes of fresh apple, caradom, sandalwood, and vetiver.
According to WWD, “The aromatic feugere fragrance family came to prominence in the Sixties — it was unmistakably masculine — mossy and ferny,” said Bill Brace, vice president of fashion brands for P&G Prestige.
“But that was a while ago, so we wanted to move it on and give it much more modern and sophisticated shell, which is why there’s fresh apple, cardamom, sandalwood and vetiver.”
The fragrance was created in tandem with Givaudan and Eon Productions.
The eau de toilette will be available in 30-ml., 50-ml., 75-ml. and 125-ml. sizes ranging in price from $30 for the 30-ml. bottle to $65 for the largest size.
Dolce and Gabbana has announced their new, glamorous face for their origianl sent Pour Femme; it's been confirmed that Laetita Casta, French model and actress, will be the new face of their fabulous fragrance campaigns.
According to Domenico and Stefano, “Laetitia has always bewitched us with her sensual and natural charisma: she is the perfect interpretation of a Dolce&Gabbana woman of today”.
The newly relaunched Pour Femme fragrance is finely tuned version of the original scent, with neroli and rasperry notes in the mix.
