Oscar de la Renta introduces Esprit d’Oscar‏

Esprit d’Oscar

The Spirit of Femininity

Over thirty years ago, Oscar de la Renta dreamed of creating a perfume that captured the joy and sophistication of his fashion designs. In 1977, he created his signature fragrance OSCAR, a celebration of women, timeless and feminine.

Today, Oscar de la Renta introduces Esprit d’Oscar Eau de Parfum, a modern take on his signature scent, inspired by the chic and sophisticated women of a new era.

To capture the essence of what a woman desires in her fragrance, Oscar turned to his daughter Eliza to help create Esprit d’Oscar, an unmistakably feminine floral-oriental. Esprit d’Oscar opens with a distinct sparkle, realized through a bright, citrus bouquet of Sicilian lemon, bergamot and citron. At its heart remain fresh florals: Egyptian jasmine, orange flower and tuberose. A combination of musk, heliotrope, tonka bean and vetiver give Esprit d’Oscar a warm, long-lasting base.

Inspired by the original Oscar Parfum bottle design, Oscar envisioned a package for Esprit d’Oscar that would marry the feel of the iconic original, with a fresh contemporary look. Sculptural glass and sleek feminine contours characterize the Esprit d’Oscar bottle. On top of its translucent flower cap, a glass pearl represents a single dewdrop, a symbol from the original Oscar story. When he was a boy, Oscar de la Renta imagined that if he woke up very early, he could take the dew from flowers to create a perfume…and so he did.

Esprit d’Oscar represents the spirit of femininity reimagined.

Justin Bieber releasing scented dog tags!

After his nail polish sold out across America, Justin Bieber is adding a fragrance collection to his name!

The 17-year-old’s “My World” scented dog tags in November, he’s expanding his collection of unisex scents, collaborating with Etoile Nation to craft deluxe dog tags and wristbands infused with a pomegranate fragrance he hand picked. The pink and purple “One Less Lonely Girl” and “Never Say Never” accessories, named for two of his hit songs, retail for $10 each at CVS and FYE stores and etoilenation.com, and feature a brooding photo of the Biebs. Serious fans can soon take things a step further by creating their own custom accessories; white gold and black diamond fragrance-infused dog tags (like the ones pictured here) will be available in the weeks ahead at etoilenation.com/custom, starting at $100 apiece.

Of course this doesn’t appeal to me at all, but I could totally see my oldest son wanting this. He’s just getting to the age where he’s starting to care what he looks like, and I bet he would love this!


Would you wear Chanel’s Feather Barrette?

Chanel has begun selling a selection of their popular haute hair pieces at some of their botiques.

Karl Lagerfeld’s handmade stone, metal, and feather-spiked barrettes were clipped over the base of runway model’s long, straight ponytails during last season’s Chanel show.

According to Vogue:

The monochromatic statement piece shown above seems destined to plunge its beholder into a fit of fashion ecstasy via a swath of wispy black-and-white plumes, CC-strung chains, and signature black tweed. With its ability to make even a simple white tank and slim-cut silk pants look instantly party-ready, it’s as worthy a Fashion Week investment as spring’s retooled pastel tweed 2.55 bags. Now that’s practical magic.

The barrette above is available for only $2,500 at select Chanel botiques, or if you can’t wait – you can call 800-550-0005.

Happy shopping! :)
