FIRST LOOK! Check out Kiehl’s new scents!

Kiehl’s fans take note: The brand’s four new Aromatic Blends fragrances offer vacation in a bottle. Each scent is inspired by a different destination. Orange Flower & Lychee is redolent of Moroccan deserts; Vanilla & Sandalwood smells like a Ugandan jungle; Nashi Blossom & Pink Grapefruit is fragrant like Japanese gardens; and Fig Leaf & Sage offers a whiff of the Provencal countryside. Many of the ingredients are sustainably sourced and natural, drawing from Madagascar vanilla beans, grapefruit extract, and orange tree leaves.

Expect a full line of products for each blend, including perfumes, skin-softening cleansers, and luxe lotions. The loot launched today on kiehls.com and will be in stores on July 10.

Jessica Simpson launches a new fragrance, inspired by her daughter, Maxwell!

Jessica Simpson stepped out over the weekend to take her daughter, Maxwell, for a walk. She Tweeted this picture, and said “Just taking a walk around the block… Street legal???”

Is that a pedometer between her tatta’s?

According to several sources, Jessica is majorly stressing over her multi-million contract with Weight Watchers to lose 50 pounds.

With the constant attention on Simpson’s body, it’s no surprise she’s reportedly stressed about trying to lose a rumored 50 pounds in just five months.

“She’s so emotional. She doesn’t want to leave her baby. Sometimes she just starts crying. It’s hard for her,” a friend of Simpson’s told In Touch of the multiple trips to the gym in recent weeks.

Simpson can at least take comfort in knowing she’s not alone on the journey back to the body she once had. Fellow new mommy Hilary Duff is also taking a healthy approach to weight loss, telling Us Weekly, “I’m working hard and I’m doing everything I can to lose the weight the right way.”

I think it’s great she’s working hard to lose 50 pounds, but that can’t possibly be all she gained. I would venture to say she
gained closer to 100 pounds. She looked like she almost doubled in size during her pregnancy.

Not that there’s anything WRONG with that. If anyone can lose the weight, it’s going to be Jessica. She’s never had a problem losing weight in the past (from what we’ve seen).

In other Jessica news, she has just launched her NEW fragrance, inspired after her daughter!

With baby Maxwell in her life, Jessica Simpson has a whole new outlook on life.

“Maxwell has changed the way I think about everything,” the new mom tells PEOPLE. “I have been loving everything floral and feminine. Even Maxwell’s nursery has vintage floral wallpaper. And there is nothing better than her natural scent! If only I could bottle that up.”

Sadly, she can’t make that happen, but she has released a new fragrance, Vintage Bloom, “a sheer scent with the freshness of citrus,” she explains. “It is extremely clean and natural.”

A departure from her most recent perfume, I Fancy You — the fourth and final fragrance in her Fancy Collection — Vintage Bloom features notes of lemon, lime and raspberry, underscored by floral accord, peony, cotton musk and Indian sandalwood.

“I’ve been wearing it all the time,” Simpson says. “It’s my favorite fragrance right now. It reminds me of summer and smells very feminine.”

Packaged in a vintage-inspired bottle modeled after a flacon from Simpson’s personal collection, the scent was “a bit of a departure,” she says. “It came about in a time in my life when everything was feeling very organic and new. Everything felt like a beginning, and that’s how this scent smells to me.”

Find Vintage Bloom ($49-$65; body lotion $30) at Macy’s stores and macys.com.

FIRST LOOK: Lady Gaga’s new fragrance smells like “tears of a Belladona”!

A photo of Lady Gaga’s first-ever fragrance, Fame, leaked online yesterday afternoon (reportedly by an editor at Flare Magazine). Instead of throwing a fit, Gaga went with it, giving up some more information.

“Looks like photos of my perfume are being leaked. Oh you fashion editors I could just crinkle my hands at you!” she wrote, before posting her own photo of the bottle. The container is deep purple/black with a gold, spiked top. The front of the box says that it is a “black fluid.”

Gaga then tweeted the back of the box, which describes what all her Little Monsters will smell like when they wear it. The description explains that the fragrance has notes of “tears of belladonna, crushed heart of tiger orchidea with a black veil of incense, pulverized apricot and the combinative essences of saffron and honey drops.”

When asked by a fan on Twitter if Fame will be followed by a men’s cologne, Gaga replied, “My perfume was designed for women, but a lot of my gay friends wear it.”

Fame has long been in the works. Gaga originally signed a fragrance deal with Coty Inc. in September 2010, and rumor had it that it would be called Monster. Stephen Mormoris, senior vice president of global marketing in the Coty Beauty division, said at the time that they wanted to work with Gaga because she is a “phenomenon” and “a fascinating cultural force” and he hoped her mass appeal would “electrify” the market on behalf of his company.

In early 2011, months after the deal was announced, Gaga had a very colorful description for the perfume, noting that it would smell “like an expensive hooker.” “[Blood and semen] is in the perfume but it doesn’t smell like it,” she told an Australian radio station at the time. “You just get sort of the after feeling of sex from the semen and the blood is sort of primal. And the blood was taken from my own blood sample so it’s like a sense of having me on your skin.”

The fragrance will hit shelves in September, just in time for her next turn as a Vogue cover girl, MTV Style reports. September is shaping up to be a big month for the singer as she will also announce the name of her next album then.
