Burberry’s New Brit Rhythm Scents
Burberry has added two fragrances to its Brit Rhythm collection. The women’s fragrance is called Burberry Brit Rhythm- Floral Eau de Toilette for Women, and the men’s fragrance is Burberry Brit Rhythm- Eau de Toilette Intense for Men. The British fashion house said the scents are inspired by “the energy and anticipation of live music.” Floral Eau de Toilette features notes of orchard fruit, Sicilian lemon and orange, Egyptian jasmine, lotus blossom and lilac. Musician George Barnett and model Suki Waterhouse star in the new campaign for the fragrances, which launch today at Burberry stores internationally. The Brit Rhythm scents will hit both department stores and Sephora next month.
Bluemercury to be Acquired by Macy’s
Macy’s Inc. has started the process to acquire indie beauty chain Bluemercury for $210 million in cash. The deal comes on the heels of Sephora’s rapid growth and expansion, which is reportedly pushing Macy’s out of the top position in the retail beauty arena. The Bluemercury transaction is expected to be complete by early May. This is department store’s first beauty acquisition in a decade.
