2012 may have brought us The Avengers, but 2013 promises a dream team of even bigger proportions for Miss Dior! The beloved Natalie Portman stars as the objet de désir for Miss Dior Eau de Parfum in a little film directed by none other than Sofia Coppola!!!! Wearing beautiful floor-length dresses, we catch of glimpses of Natalie splashing through fountains or against a stunning wall of roses, not to mention snippets of Ms. Coppola sitting in the director’s chair.
It’s not every day that the ultimate in young pop superstars comes out with a sensitive new fragrance; it’s SOMEDAY by Justin Bieber!
“SOMEDAY by Justin Bieber is more than just a fragrance: it’s energy with a state-of-mind that inspires. It is a personal gift straight from his heart, giving fans a chance to get one step closer to Justin.”
The scent is fresh and floral, and completely age appropriate for the younger crowd. I imagine you could keep it in your gym locker for a dab of clean-smelling essence after a long hour of field hockey. Just make sure your girlfriends don’t steal it all!
Hearts are indeed abounding, not only in the colorful bottle design, but with all of the profits going to charities like Make-A-Wish Foundation and Pencils of Promise, Justin seems to be carrying a very big heart beneath that black pleather jacket. (Not such a bad place for you or your little sis to vicariously cuddle up to.)
With so many fine reasons to wear this fragrance, I’d like to leave it up to our readers.
Perfume is a funny thing. While it’s extremely personal (umm…it’s what you smell like), it’s also very public (everyone else can smell it too).
Choosing a scent to make your own is almost like a journey of self discovery. Am I a sugary vanilla sweetie or a sultry smoky vixen? Do I bathe in the stuff or just put a tiny dollop behind each ear?
I love perfume, considering it doesn’t reek or burn my nostrils. When tastefully applied, it can make you feel more glamorous, put togther and even make memories. Certain perfumes will always remind me of a specific time in my life. Getting ready to go to the 8th grade dance, my college dorm experience, that summer vacation by the beach…a scent can bring you back in an instant.
So here’s a couple of the Lulu*s staff favorites, and I must say, we smell pretty darn good.
The timeless Coco Chanel is a staple of the ever posh Heather (photo assistant), while the ruby red Absolutely Irresistible by Givenchy is a favorite often worn by yours truly. I love to get the roll-on tube because it’s more affordable, and you can just keep it in your purse.
A great collection of scents by Tokyo Milk keeps Lulu*s model, Laura, smelling lovely during photo shoots. Kellen (Web Operations Manager) loves her Sensi perfume from Giorgio Armani. A sensual scent with exotic floral tones, this would be perfect for an evening out.
The Fresh and Floral
I’ve only heard great things about the popular Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf, a scent Renee (returns Dept) adores. Dolce & Gabbana’s Light Blue is described as being cheerful, crisp and summery, which is perfect for Shandi (customer service) on her typical Mon-Fri work week.
Jonathan (inventory) keeps on his feet with Allure Homme Sport by Chanel, while Brittani (sample girl) loves her Abercrombie & Fitch 8 and even steals some of her boyfriend’s Abercrombie & Fitch Fierce from time to time.
For those who prefer an earthier, natural scent, take a hint from Matt (inventory) and use a little Patchouli essence. I also love how both Sienna (copy writer) and Marty (photographer) use a little citrus peel zest to keep things light and fresh.
So what’s your signature scent? What do you think it says about you?
