Arm yourself with Revolver, Urban Decay’s new ”sexy and powerful weapon of love.” The fragrance oil opens with top notes of lychee and pineapple leaf, then mixes with the middle note of fig. Sheer, yet potent base notes of amber and Egyptian musk round out the scent.
Eau de toilet perfume sprays often dissipate and fade as the day wears on; but this concentrated perfume oil comes in a perfect, go-anywhere roll applicator that can be targeted right at your pulse points (wrist, inner elbow and behind ears) – ao the fragrance seems as captivating at the end of the day as when you first put it on. Revolver tucks easily into the smallest evening bag without fear of unloading.
Flora by Gucci Eau de Parfum, which follows the debut of the Flora by Gucci Eau de Toilette, is the latest product developed for the growing Flora fragrance world. The light, feminine touch of Flora resonated immediately with consumers around the world when it launched in April 2009. This new EDP possesses the same youthful and optimistic spirit but in a deeper, more concentrated scent. The result is a sophisticated, warmer version of Flora that makes it ideal as an evening fragrance.
“I was just as involved in the creative development of this new Eau de Parfum as I was in the original Flora fragrance,” says Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini. “I used the freshness of Flora as the foundation but wanted to bring a new sensuality to this scent. The Eau de Parfum feels a bit more grown up. I think it will still appeal to our Flora customer but now she has the choice of whether she wants to keep her scent light and easy or a bit more rich and dramatic for evening. It is for a different moment in the same woman’s life.”
Giannini relied upon the same base of Rose and Osmanthus flower balanced by Sandalwood and Patchouli for the scent’s structure; however the notes are now stronger and more sultry in the Eau de Parfum version. Top notes of fresh citrus and peony finish off the bouquet. Not only is the effect more intense and luxurious, but the scent also lasts longer on the skin.
For the EDP, Giannini has created a new white on black Flora pattern for the package interior, which gives a twist to the original and creates a new, richer look. The bottle’s cap has been crafted from gold metal and the label in gold paper give it a precious and luxurious feel.
The new Eau de Parfum will be complemented by a special collection of luxury gifts that will launch in exclusive doors. The new products include a white scented candle decorated with the black Flora pattern, a luxury purse spray as well as a solid fragrance that is packaged in a sophisticated gold metal compact.

I always thought Marc Jacobs Daisy smelled great in the bottle, but not so hot on me. I’m much more of a Lola gal, myself. So, today, while perusing Sephora.com, I noticed a new version of Daisy – called Daisy In The Air – and thought I’d check it out.
But after doing some research, I found that Daisy In The Air isn’t a new version of Daisy at all. It’s actually the original Daisy fragrance in a limited-edition bottle, adorned with light blue flowers. It comes with “a scented daisy chain to hang in your room for a touch of inspiring scent and playful visual appeal.”
It’s not clear at all, on Sephora.com, that this “new” Daisy isn’t a re-imagination of the original scent. So I just wanted to warn Daisy owners not to be fooled into purchasing a bottle of Daisy In The Air – that is, unless your bottle is almost empty and you need to replenish anyway.
