Recessionista’s Fabuless Pick Of The Week: Cashmere Mist Deodorant/Anti-Perspirant

Posted on by daneen in Deodorant, Fabuless Pick of the Week, Perfume | Leave a comment

donna+karan+cashmere+mist+deodorant Recessionistas Fabuless Pick Of The Week: Cashmere Mist Deodorant/Anti PerspirantSince when does a deodorant turn you on to the corresponding perfume? Since now.

A month ago, Amber and I met up in suburban Philly for a Marshalls/TJ Maxx raid. While perusing the beauty selection, Amber turned my attention to a mini tube of Donna Karan Cashmere Mist Deodorant/Anti-perspirant. Its powdery vanilla scent fragrance had me at hello. But, for some reason, I bid it adieu and sat it back on the shelf.

And from the moment I got in my car and drove out of the parking lot, the fragrance haunted my olfactory senses and I cursed my retail restraint.

Then last week, while making a routine pit stop at Sephora, I spotted my little friend (the deodorant, not Amber) in one of those bins near the register. So I scooped her up and took her home.

There are no words to describe how enamored I am with this deodorant. I find myself raising my arms more often than necessary, just to get a whiff of my ambrosial armpits.

Now while $10 may seem a bit absurd for a 1 oz tube of deodorant, let me assure you that this is a sound investment. Not only is it the the best smelling deodorant I’ve ever tried, it’s the perfect size to stash in your purse (or clutch, even) for a mid-day refresh sesh.

And once you buy the deodorant, just try not to buy the perfume. Impossible.

I Wanna Rock: Vera Wang Rock Princess

vera+wang+rock+princess I Wanna Rock: Vera Wang Rock PrincessEarlier this year, Vera Wang added a new heir to the Princess throne.

Rock Princess – with notes of peach, raspberry, bergamot, heliotrope, rose, jasmine, lily, cashmere wood, musk, iris and coconut – is like Princess’ badass lil sis.

I don’t know why Gossip Girl‘s Taylor Momsen isn’t the face of this fragrance. I can totally picture her misting it on post-kohl eyeliner and pre-leather jacket.

In Bloom by Reese Witherspoon

reese+witherspoon+avon In Bloom by Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon has partnered with Avon for the launch of her first fragrance, In Bloom by Reese Witherspoon.

The fragrance is an invitation to experience the sensual side of a woman. Precious and exquisite, the scent combines a delicate femininity with a seductive allure and a mysterious beauty.

“In developing In Bloom, I found myself drawn to the scents of my childhood in Tennessee,” explains Reese. “We had a great big Magnolia tree in the back yard, and it’s that beautiful white blossom that inspired the perfume. In Bloom is indicative of where I am in my life today. I’m feeling very strong and independent, and so happy, so full of life. The fragrance truly captures that feeling—it’s very sensual, very romantic and alluring.”

Noted include: Georgia peach, tea leaves and crisp greens (top); Star gardenia, magnolias and night-blooming jasmine (heart); cashmere woods, hypnotic florals and amber wood crystals (base).


“Reese was the perfect partner on the fragrance – she was fully involved in the whole process from the development of the juice and packaging to the fragrance name,” says Isabel Ryan, Director of Avon Creative Development. “I logged many miles flying between NY and LA to work with her to make sure the end result was a true reflection of Reese’s style.”

The fragrance will be available globally in November in two sizes: a 1.7-oz. eau de parfum for $34, and a 1-oz. limited edition version for $59. A body mist, body lotion and shower gel also will be available for $15.

Kenzo’s New Fragrances: For Indigo Girls & Boys

woman+spraying+perfume Kenzos New Fragrances: For Indigo Girls & Boys

I’m a winter fragrance kind of gal. I like my scents rich, regal and gourmand. So when the mercury starts to rise and it comes time to retire my cold weather perfumes to the rear of my vanity, a part of me hibernates with them.

Yes, straightforward citrus, green grass, and delicate bouquets are more fitting fragrances for summer. But, with a few exceptions, they just don’t speak to me.

For quite some time, I’ve been on a quest to find my ideal summer scent. But I didn’t know, specifically, what I was looking for…which is probably why it’s eluded me for so long. After a while, I just pretty much threw my hands up – hoping that my holy grail perfume would, somehow, find its way to my pulse points.

kenzo+indigo Kenzos New Fragrances: For Indigo Girls & Boys

Well, I’m happy to report that I’ve finally found one I luvre. And while it didn’t magically materialize on the insides of my wrists, it did show up on my doorstep.

Last week, I received samples of L’Eau par Kenzo Eau Indigo, “a pair of sensual fragrances for him and her inspired by the seductive dance of color and scent as dusk settles on the water. The bottles, deep blue for men and purple for women, fit together to create a true indigo.”

L’Eau Par Kenzo Eau Indigo pour femme is IT, y’all. This perfume is a warm Friday evening at sunset. You’ve got on a sexy sundress and your hair is doing exactly what it’s told. There are some beads of perspiration on your shoulders and collarbone, but you’re not sweating – you’re glistening. You’re on your way to meet the girls, and there’s a sense of mystery and adventure regarding where the night might take you. Simply put, Kenzo Indigo is the personification of a summer night, ripe with promise.

This eau de parfum has a gentle, zesty start with notes of bergamot and mandarin, then unfolds into a sunny floral heart of sambac jasmine, orange blossom and ylang-ylang. Amber and tonka bean anchor this complex and seductive scent.

Like its female counterpart, L’Eau par Kenzo Eau Indigo pour homme explodes with zesty notes which unfold into a sensual base built around an amber note. Decidedly the more summery of the two, this eau de toilette also features hints of ginger, coriander, vetiver and cedar. I solicited Papa Spoiled Pretty’s opinion of the scent, so he sprayed a little on his forearm and inhaled. Then he sniffed again, this time more deeply. Then he misted his other arm and neck. “This is great,” he proclaimed. Then he made off with the bottle.

L’eau par Kenzo Eau Indigo, for him and her, are available at kenzousa.com for $55 (1.7 oz).
