Note-worthy: Justin Bieber Someday Valentine

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Justin Bieber has launched a special Limited Edition packaging of his hugely successful perfume Someday. At Macy’s in NYC your gift with purchase is Someday boxed rose — chemically treated to last forever! It also comes with a $15 gift card for 1-800-Flowers.

ADDENDUM: I used my $15 gift card to send flowers for my grandmother’s funeral in St. Louis. They never arrived. Eventually, I was issued a refund but I am very unhappy about it.

 

Note-worthy: Zsa Zsa Gabor

Happy birthday Zsa Zsa Gabor! After numerous health scares, it is wonderful to report that Zsa Zsa has just celebrated her 95th birthday.

Gabor had her own short lived fragrance called Zig Zag. I need to do more research on it before I write anything definitive. But below are some photos of various items from the Zig Zag collection as well as an image of “The Book of Seven Secrets” for which Gabor was a spokesmodel.

Note-worthy: Snookie

Get ready America! Snookie The Fragrance launches today! Really.

Yes, the Jersey Shore reality TV star has her own fragrance which she will launch today on HSN. Directly from the HSN website: “Playful, flirty, sweet and sexy, the Snooki namesake fragrance is inspired by Nicole Polizzi’s favorite treats – no, not pickles! This premiere fragrance embodies the essence of Snooki from head to toe – all 4′ 9″ of her. Involved at every stage of the creation process, Snooki incorporated her signature style in everything from the bold animal print patterns and spike details on the bottle to the delicious notes reminiscent of sweet cotton candy from the boardwalk. To Snooki, it’s simply ‘the kind of fragrance that makes you hungry for more Snooki.'”

Snookie perfume

Snookie features top notes of lychee, quince flower and kiwi; middle notes of pink cupcake accord (really, I’m not making this up!), white jasmine flower and beach flower; and base notes of woods, seaside driftwood and sugared musk.

I am thrilled to say that I already have mine, along with the gift-with-purchase leopard totebag (with Snookie logo lining).

And I have to admit that I just love the packaging. It’s really playful and 80’s — a campier version of Sarah Jessica Parker’s SJP NYC. The best part: the Snookie celebrity barcode on the back of the box. Whoever designed that deserves a raise! Bravo.

Note-worthy: America’s Next Top Model

America Next Top Model perfume

America Next Top Model perfume

Tyra Banks is one of the few celebs out there who probably SHOULD have a fragrance and doesn’t.  Instead, we will have to settle for the first America’s Next Top Model fragrance, “Dream Come True”, when it launches in January.  On a recent episode of America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 17: All Stars, Lisa D’Amato won a challenge that would make her the face of the fragrance.

As far as the notes go, “Dream Come True” opens with red currant, honeydew and pink freesia. The heart of Amazon lily, plum blossom and empress peony is laid on the base of blonde woods, musk, pink sugar and Tahitian vanilla.

It will be sold at Target for $21.99 for a 1-oz. eau de toilette, or $12.99 for a 30-ml. perfume.

In 2008, Jennifer Hof won her own fragrance on Germany’s Next Topmodel, which is hosted by celebrity scentster Heidi Klum. LR Fragrances (who also released Klum’s first 3 fragrances) released “Jenny K.L.” in 2009.

Kardashian/Odom: Unbreakable

Reality TV star Khloe Kardashian and her baller husband Lamar Odom have launched their unisex fragrance, Unbreakable, at Perfumania. It was supposed to be in stores on February 12, but none of the stores in NYC had it that day — clerks at several stores didnt even know about it at all. On February 17, Khloe posted on her Facebook page that it was completely sold out. Regardless, you can order it now at www.kardashianfragrance.com. Perfumania clerks say that it will be on store shelves in early March.

Notes are: Italian bergamot, sparkling clementine, Asian saffron, green apple, African geranium, sheer jasmine, lily of the valley, juicy red fruits, texas cedarwood, tonka bean, vanilla bean and dark chocolate. It retails for $45 for 3.4 fl.oz.
