Regular readers may notice that I don’t write a lot about perfumes or fragrances. Its not that I don’t like them. Which girl doesn’t? Its just that fragrances have a character all their own and from previous experience, I found that I was smelling things no one else was! For example, I would smell a rose scent when no one did and would be absolutely puzzled that anyone would smell lemons when I don’t. That’s when I realised that I don’t have a nose for perfumes.
That said however, there’s going to be a new offering from Escada perfumes that promises something big. The scent is Escada Incredible Me.

I popped by Dior the same time that I saw the Estee Lauder Chocolate Decadence collection. This time, I was able to swipe swatches of the Fall 2008 collection and get away with it. Make me sound like a nefarious robber eh?
Anyway, I’d read quite a lot of hype on the online community about the Dior Fall 2008 Collection.

I cannot believe that Stila Cosmetics is 14! Was it only yesterday that I found out that Jeanine Lobell (Founder of Stila) was the wife of Anthony Edwards (of ER fame)? Well apparently not, because they have now been around for 14 years – first as an independant company, then as part of the Estee Lauder family and after they were sold by Estee Lauder in 2006, they are now under a company called Sun Capital Partners Inc.
I’m just happy that someone is keeping Stila going because it would be a pity to have this brand die out on us. For me, Stila has always embodied everything that’s girly and pretty. Interestingly it doesn’t show in their packaging (to me) which is quite staid but who can resist falling in love with the “Stila Girls” artwork? I do wish they’d bring them back. They were adorable!
