Hana Elite Flat Iron 1″ – 100% Ceramic

Of the hundreds of flat irons available in the market you can categorize them down to Titanium (or other metals), Metal Alloy Coated in Ceramic, 100% Ceramic. 100% Ceramic is the only material that will generate results better than Titanium while also providing the highest level of hair damage protection.

The Hana Elite Flat Iron is 100% true, solid ceramic. This means it will never peel or chip to expose hair to damaging metal – it also means Hana can include large ceramic heaters that cover the entire plates for the best possible heat distribution and retention. As the pros know, the secret to ceramic hair straightening is in the ceramic technology itself – and Hana focuses on bringing you the best flat iron money can buy. (Compare to the other pure ceramic flat irons on the market today.)

The Hana Elite is now available in a new 1.5″ model for thicker/longer hair types – the FIRST and ONLY pure ceramic plate flat iron in the world to be available in a wide plate size!

Hot New Fragrances!

These fragrances listed below are new, and I haven’t smelled any of them. If you have any of these – let us know which one is your favorite!!



Chloé Eau de Toilette
by Chloe.
The rose sparkles with simplicity and joy. A free and fresh interpretation of the Eau de Parfum, this reflection of the multi-faceted Chloé is feminine, bold, and natural. The rose reveals new olfactory colors in the Eau de Toilette, creating a light, luminous character. Hints of mandarin orange zest shine through in the head notes. Freesia and watermelon enhance the initial impression, and touches of sandalwood and fresh iris complete the base. Subtle elegance pervades every layer of this deliciously mischievous scent. The fragrance’s luxurious flacon is graced with an ivory-colored ribbon.

Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf.
This floral explosion releases a profusion of flowers that has the power to make everything seem more positive. Magically evocative notes immediately awaken your deepest senses, giving you the impression of living life in your own secret garden, away from reality. Sambac Jasmine, Centifolia Rose, Cattleya Orchid, and Ballerina Freesia bloom on a base of Patchouli.

Flora Eau de Parfum by Gucci.
Experience this more concentrated and captivating formulation of Gucci Flora—a subtle, sophisticated, floral fragrance inspired by princesses from the past, present, and future. The Flora Donna is a young, classic, and refined woman with the ‘Gucci edge’ of power and sensuality. She is elegant, natural, and spontaneous. The first Flora scarf was exclusively designed for Princess Grace of Monaco in 1966 and soon became one of the most popular Gucci icons. This scent is an expression of the Flora legacy. Its seductive layers mirror the playful details and bright colors that channel the heart of a fashion empire.

Hanae Mori Butterfly
Hanae Mori, the great lady of Japanese fashion and Parisian haute couture, introduced this fragrance in 1996 and the subtle composition of scents make it unlike any other.

The fragrance is a rare blend of berries and flowers, with a distinctive tone of strawberries and almond, giving an impression of vanilla. The bottle’s top is distinctly made from glass, a first for any fragrance. The top represents the beauty and delicate shape of a butterfly with folded wings.

THE PLAZA INTRODUCES FRAGRANCE COLLECTION

New York – March 9, 2010 – The Plaza (www.ThePlaza.com), New York’s iconic hotel, recently debuted a signature fragrance collection, fittingly titled The Plaza. The collection includes an eau de parfum, a candle, and soap, all available exclusively at The Plaza Beauty at The Shops at The Plaza. The Plaza fragrance is the first perfume to be launched by The Plaza, with plans to introduce additional exclusive scents to the hotel’s fragrance collection later this year.

The fragrance was created exclusively for The Plaza by one of the world’s most celebrated perfumeries, Krigler, a 5th generation fragrance house. Krigler culled exceptional ingredients from around the world to craft the one-of-a-kind scent. The Plaza fragrance has top notes of bergamot, grapefruit, verbena heart, Texan cedar, oud, and iris, delicately balanced with undertones of amber, precious wood, and leather. The result of which is an elegant bouquet that evokes the very essence of the landmark hotel – classic, timeless and romantic.

“We looked to The Plaza’s rich history situated on Central Park and Fifth Avenue to seek inspiration,” said Kristin Franzese, Executive Vice President, Retail. “The Plaza fragrance captures a moment in time. We wanted to create a modern scent that appeals to women who share the same dreams and aspirations inspired by the romance and classicism of one of New York’s most iconic and glamorous destinations.”

The Plaza fragrance collection is available for purchase exclusively at The Plaza Beauty. The Plaza Beauty is located on the concourse level of The Shops at The Plaza. The Plaza fragrance will be available in two sizes, 1.7 ounce eau de parfum ($95.00) / 3.4 ounce eau de parfum ($140.00), as well as a candle ($65.00) and soap ($18.00).
