GUESS by Marciano Introduces Sexy, New Fragrance for Spring 2008
The GUESS by Marciano fragrance celebrates the power of the fashion-forward woman and was created to inspire glamour, and sensuality. This delectable fragrance is united by zesty, invigorating fruits and vibrant florals and then balanced by warm, rounded, woody notes. Star fruits, Curaçao oranges and hand-picked grapefruits are blended and mixed with the alluring spice of Cardamom. Bouquets of Peonies in full bloom, pink Honeysuckle and Jasmine blossoms embrace the scent with gestures of strong raw Woods, Vanilla and Dulce de leche.
The Eau de Parfum in the GUESS by Marciano fragrance collection comes in a sleek, refined amber-tinted bottle featuring climbing exotic blossoms in gold. The GUESS logo appears on the bottle’s facade in a rich chocolate brown. Neil J. Katz, Chairman and CEO of Parlux Fragrances, Inc, said, “This introduction to the GUESS by Marciano fragrance portfolio continues to complement the lifestyle of the GUESS by Marciano woman. Daring yet sophisticated, it embodies confident sensuality with a fashion-forward sensibility.”
Eau de Parfum Sprays at $49.00 for the 1.7 oz. and $65.00 for the 3.4 oz., plus a Body Butter at $35.00 for the 5 oz. and a Body Lotion at $30.00 for the 6 oz.
I’m excited to try this! I’m just starting to get into fragrances, so I’m on the hunt for something exciting. I’m lovin’ the packaging, it seems so… sultry. Have you taken a sniff yet?
MAC Mineralize SPF 15 Foundation (Loose) | A lightweight loose powder foundation that utilizes the power of minerals to provide the skin with a smooth, radiant, natural finish. Brushes on the skin for sophisticated, medium-buildable coverage. Special mineral complex helps keep skin healthy and nourished while the blend of moisturizers and conditioners in the formula help create a smooth, flawless application. Provides essential everyday SPF 15 sun protection.
Launched at Nordstrom’s and Nordstrom.com yesterday. We won’t see this in freestanding MAC stores until later this spring (April, I believe!).
I’ll be checking it out this morning (in about an hour!) when I go for Heatherette swatches! 😉

To celebrate Christopher’s sexy designs, flair with color and international mindset, Lancôme asked him to collaborate on a project for the iconic, oft-imitated Juicy Tubes franchise. The result: The Juicy Tubes World Tour, nine new lip glosses, each decorated with an illustration by Christopher. The shades, names and flavors were born from his fashion travels: from Rio, where, “the girls have an incredible kind of beauty,” to Paris, “the fashion capital of the world,” to New York, where”girls are groomed, sophisticated and so well dressed,” each captures the excitement of the hottest cities around.
Christopher is thrilled to be part of the Lancôme family and equally excited to be part of what he deems the “Juicy Tube phenomena.” “I have always loved the way a Juicy Tube can transform a lip with its patent texture and appearance,” he says. “It plumps the lip to perfection.”
