Gwyneth Paltrow looks beautiful as Estee Lauder’s spokeswoman! (Forget the fact that the picture is entirely photoshopped!)

When you find a fragrance you love, you want to wear it forever. Now, Estée Lauder brings you a new addition to the irresistible collection of Pure White Linen fragrances that you can live in all year round. New Pure White Linen Pink Coral is an utterly feminine, tender and peaceful fragrance that gently sweeps over the senses in soft waves, capturing the feeling of being by the ocean at daybreak, just as it is blushed by dawn’s warm light.

With a composition of perfectly blended sea-kissed Apple Blossoms, Waterfruits, Sweet Peas and Camelias blushed with Honeysuckle and Sandalwood, Pure White Linen Pink Coral is a scent that is feminine, peaceful and wonderfully, perfectly pretty.

Pure White Linen Pink Coral is the perfect feeling and fragrance to complete the Pure White Linen collection,” said Karyn Khoury, Senior Vice President of Fragrance Development Worldwide, Estée Lauder. “The Pure White Linen values of sophisticated simplicity and relaxed elegance are reinforced, but with a unique view that is tender and feminine.”

The Fragrance
Sweeping over the senses in series of soft waves, Pure White Linen Pink Coral opens delicately with a gentle mist of Chinese Berry and Pink Peppercorns. When combined with juicy Apple Blossom, Waterfruits and Clear Aldehydes, a sparkling crisp wetness and a dreamy bright floralcy greet you in the top notes of the fragrance.

Next comes a perfect floral fusion that lingers with the pure innocence of Jasmine, Camellia Flower and a perfect accent of Honeysuckle. A blushing bouquet of Sweet Pea, Cherry Blossom, and Pink Peony follows closely behind, evoking the tender serenity of the ocean at daybreak.

In the end, the petals float softly away leaving in their wake a peaceful whisper of creamy Sandalwood, sheer Vanilla and a caressing touch of Heliotrope.

Pure White Linen Pink Coral will be available on www.esteelauder.com and all Estee Lauder counters in June, 2009.

UPDATE: Pure White Linen Pink Coral is now available for sale!!

I just started using this and I love it! Around this time of year when the weather gets really hot I am prone to breakouts around my hairline from sweat. Not very pretty! I was just starting to breakout and it was not making me too happy.

Patricia Wexler’s glyco peel is worth every penny. Its tingle a bit but even on my sensitive skin it wasn’t overpowering I was worried it might burn or leave my face red but I am a week in and no problems. I just noticed this morning all my little blemishes along my hairline are gone and my skin looks bright and radiant. Definitely a new staple to my beauty routine.

New L’eauparKenzo eau Indigo

bottles2.jpg

I love L’eauparKenzo new fragrances eau Indigo! The bottles, as usual are beautiful enough just to display on your counter, the bottles are carved to fit together seamlessly and when the color of the bottles blend become indigo! How cool!

As for the scent, the men’s fragrance is very sexy and bright the citrus and coriander blend perfectly and balance out with a woody scent. I think the men’s is my favorite with its spicy fresh smell.

The women’s eau Indigo has a great mandarin and floral scent and while its strong enough to smell throughout the day it doesn’t overpower me or leave me sneezing. Both are great summer scents that my hubby and I will be enjoying as the weather warms. The women’s is so popular it it temporarily sold out but should be available on the Kenzo website shortly.
