Marc Jacobs new fragrance ‘Dot’ smells like coconut water and dragon fruit!

I want to smell this so bad! Just the description sounds amazing!

Marc Jacobs, the genius behind my favorite perfume (Lola) is launching a new fragrance! In July of this year, he’ll debut his new perfume, Dot.

I’m in love with the adorable lady-bug themed bottle!

Dot will be the third major scent for Jacobs, who launched Daisy in 2007 and Lola in 2009.

Dot’s dot-bedecked bottle is supposed to evoke a “ladybug with butterflies alighting on it,” which makes us think it’s going to be a super-sweet scent. For those of you who speak Fragrance, Dot has top notes of red berries, dragon fruit and honeysuckle; a heart of jasmine, coconut water and orange blossom and a drydown of vanilla, driftwood and musk.

Coconut water? Like Zico?

Ads for Dot will predictably star an ultra-young model. This time it’s 19-year-old Codie Young, whom you might remember from the Topshop “size zero” controversy fame.

Cannot wait to try it!!

Crabtree & Evelyn’s new Avocado, Olive & Basil Collection

The avocado fruit, indigenous to Central and South America, has long been hailed for its natural healing and beneficial properties, particularly the ability to moisturise and soothe the skin. In the Mediterranean, olive oil has been used for centuries in skin care, culinary, and medicinal applications, earning it the reputation of “liquid gold”. It is the combination of these two fruits with the restorative and aromatic properties of basil that has resulted in a new ultra-moisturising body and hand care range. These antioxidant-rich fruit oils and soothing basil will help to condition, restore, and moisturise your skin.

Central to this collection is a luxurious Skin Nourishing Body Butter, which will moisturise the driest skin and can be massaged into thirsty skin anytime for ultimate deep conditioning.

The unique fresh green herbal fragrance captures the scent of avocado and olive blossoms, basil, sage, and Mediterranean herbs, making it suitable for both men and women. The entire range is suitable for all skin types and is formulated without parabens, phthalates, sulfates, propylene glycol, and mineral oil.
