Jocelyn’s Christmas Must-Have, Number 1!

mhumust-have10.jpgmj-lola-line-up-3_r60lr.jpg

Two years ago, Marc Jacobs launched the wildly successful Daisy. I love Daisy, it’s such a great scent. I never actually splurged on buying it – but everytime I go to a Sephora – or Macy’s I definitely spray it on.

I was recently sent a sample of Marc Jacobs LOLA (in quite possibly the cutest packaging I’ve ever seen) and immediately I want to claim this scent as my own. It is so ME! I wonder if everyone will feel this way. It’s just the best scent ever, probably one of – if not the one favorite perfume I’ve ever smelled.

Those that follow this site probably know that I never really review many fragrances, because I’m so darn picky. But this scent is amazing. It’s so unbelievably intoxicating – that’s a great way to put it. When it’s released – you need to go check it out. See for yourself. You won’t be sorry!

LOLA is my favorite fragrance of 2009 – in my opinion is the best scent of the year. LOVE IT! Perfect Christmas present! Look how beautiful the packaging is!

LOLA is a warm floral bouquet – irresistibly alluring, vividly tempting. The fragrance is an intoxicating swirl of rich layers, wrapping the skin in sensuous florals blooming with a signature of the fuschia peony.

LOLA sparkles with fruity topnotes of delectable bright pink peppercorn, seductive pear d’anjou and succulent ruby red grapefruit. The ultra-feminine heart is highlighted by the lavish dischia peony with soft touches of rose and geranium.

The base lingers on skin exuding a warm and seductive aura with enveloping notes of smooth vanilla, tonka bean and creamy musk.

“Where Daisy is more innocent and sweet, Lola is more sensual — the name conjures up a flirtatious, warm spirit,” Jacobs told WWD.

Taylor Lautner for Giorgio Armani fragrances?

Taylor Lautner is poised to become the next face of Giorgio Armani.

According to a fashion insider, the Italian designer is trying to sign the Twilight hunk for a new ad campaign for fragrances, as well as for his more affordable line of clothing, A/X Armani Exchange.

“Giorgio has offered Taylor a deal rumored to be worth millions for the ads,” the insider reveals.

And although a rep for Taylor denies the story, the insider adds, “Taylor is flattered and really considering it.”

If he does take the job, he’ll have some big briefs to fill.

Soccer star David Beckham sent huge crowds into hysterics when he turned up at Selfridges & Co. in London to unveil his underwear ad.

Taylor completely bulked up to play the werewolf Jacob in New Moon. “I went from a men’s small to a men’s large,” he says.
