Kenneth Cole Vintage Black

Is it time to update your mans scent? I was just sent a sample of Kenneth Cole’s Vintage Black and its the great scent for the man in your life. I love the mix of mixture of scents, the black pepper adds the perfect spice to the citrus top notes and finishes off with a warm woody scent. With my husband celebrating a birthday at the end of this month it’s the perfect gift for him that I get to enjoy as well!  The black bottle has a great modern look that stands out from the usual fragrance bottle design.

Kenneth Cole Vintage Black Eau de Toilette
Top notes: Lime, Pink Grapefruit, Dewy Greens, White Pepper
Middle notes: Icy Tequilla Accord, Lavendar, Sandalwood
Base notes: Oak, Cedarwood, Musk
An edgy and provocative scent that’s steeped with seduction, Kenneth Cole’s Vintage Black is for the masculine, metropolitan man who exudes power and confidence.

A fresh aromatic with top notes of mint, fresh fruits, watermint, mandarin, basil and ginger. Mid notes of intense cedar leaf, nutmeg, incense and lotus flower make way for the rich and stimulating dry down of black suede, violet leaves, musk, ambergis and exotic woods.

3.4 fl. oz eau de toilette. $67.50

The Best-Selling Celebrity Fragrance of All Time!

Sean “Diddy” Combs may have a hit with his latest fragrance, I Am King (it sold out in 16 minutes on HSN last week) but he has yet to rule the celebrity fragrance market here in America.

According to the research whizzes over at Chicago-headquartered Euromonitor International, the venerable Liz Taylor still leads the pack in U.S. fragrance sales, bagging $67.2 million in 2008 for her White Diamonds scent, first released in 1991 by Elizabeth Arden. (Diddy trailed Taylor by nearly $20 million, with 2008 sales of $48.5 million.)

Other scent-sations include Sarah Jessica Parker’s Lovely, Derek Jeter Driven and Glo by J.Lo. Any surprises? Well, the polarizing Celine Dion ranked third, inching out SJP by a little less than $1 million. And, somewhat puzzlingly, Antonio Banderas made the cologne cut, too.

1. Elizabeth Taylor White Diamonds –$67.2 million
2. Sean John Unforgivable — $48.5 million
3. Celine Dion — $26.4 million
4. Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker — $25.7 million
5. Derek Jeter Driven — $24.1 million
6. Diavolo by Antonio Banderas — $18.8 million
7. Glo by J.Lo — 18.5
8. Curious by Britney Spears — $14.3
9. Fantasy by Britney Spears — $10.1 million


Sarah Jessica Parker’s B.O. inspired fragrance!

This picture really has nothing to do with this article, I just think it’s a really funny picture of Sarah Jessica Parker (if it’s even a legit picture of her…her head does look funny). Okay – back to my post.

Sarah Jessica Parker has taken inspiration for her new fragrance from body odor.

The Sex & The City star has already made her mark in the perfume world with her signature Lovely scent and now she’s working on a top secret follow-up for 2010.

And the idea behind the fragrance is to make it smell just like B.O.

She tells WENN, “I’m working on a new genderless fragrance that’s not out yet. I can’t even tell you what it’s called.

“It has taken me three years to decide on the scent because I really like B.O. and I think it’s sexy. I wanted to figure out a way to make it palatable to everybody. I was like, ‘How do you get B.O. in a bottle and make an atomiser of it?’

“Then it was all about trying to capture the sense of naughtiness in a bottle that it would be good for a man and a woman.”

Parker has been trying out the new scent on journalists and bloggers during her press tour for new movie Did You Hear About the Morgans?, in which she stars with Hugh Grant.
