Juicy Couture to Launch a New Scent
Juicy Couture is expanding its fragrance collection with Viva La Juicy Noir, created to be a seductive version of the original scent Viva La Juicy. The scent has top notes of fruits and wild berries. Gardenia petals, honeysuckle, and jasmine are at its heart, and the base notes are vanilla and sandalwood. The fragrance is more intense and bold than other Juicy Couture fragrances.
“We wanted Viva la Juicy Noir to shift away from the fresh sparkle of the original Viva la Juicy into a tempting and ultrafeminine scent,” Honorine Blanc, the creator of the scent said, adding that the scent was designed to “evoke a feeling of the limitless possibilities that nighttime can bring.” Viva La Juicy Noir will be available in three sizes of eau de parfum. The scent will be launched next month and the campaign, starring Sasha Pivovarova, will debut in the August issues of fashion glossies.
Stylist Annabel Tollman Passes Away
British stylist Annabel Tollman died Thursday in her West Village apartment. Tollman was in her 30s and reportedly died of natural causes. She worked with many stars including Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Scarlett Johansson, Shakira, and Mariah Carey.
Johansson said Friday, “Annabel was the epitome of class and elegance, the English Rose personified. She celebrated the female figure and taught me how to dress the part of an independent, self-possessed and confident young lady, as she represented all of those qualities. I will miss her friendship deeply; she touched all of those that knew her with a warmth, intelligence, thoughtfulness, beauty and grace.”
