BeneFit has introduced their newest foray into fragrance with a particularly creative and whimsical idea. Crescent Row is a trio of fragrances embodying three different feminine universes. The label imagined three girls who are neighbors, as in a Georgian-styled twist on Friends. Inspired by a visit to the Royal Crescent, a spectacular example of Georgian architecture of a row of townhouses laid out in a semi-circle in the town of Bath, England, the new collection, Crescent Row, features three feminine scents corresponding to three different flats:
Laugh with Me LeeLee, Something about Sofia, My Place or Yours Gina...The perfumes were entrusted to perfumer François Demachy of LVMH and developed by BeneFit founders Jean and Jane Ford over two years with fragrance companies Robertet and Firmenich. That's some heavy duty developing, ladies!
Laugh With Me LeeLee, a woody floral designed to be fun and feminine, has top notes of cassis, melon and citrus; a heart of black violet, lily and jasmine, and a drydown of blond wood, amber and santal.
There's Something About Sofia, an oriental created to be bit more free-spirited, consists of top notes of mango and freesia; middle notes of sheer lily, jasmine sambac and peony petal, and a drydown of musk, white caramel and vanilla bean.
The more provocative My Place or Yours Gina has top notes of pink pepper, bergamot and tangerine; a heart of peony, wild raspberry and white lily, and base notes of patchouli, tonka bean and vanilla.
The perfumes are bottled in flacons inspired by an American lady's cocktail shaker excavated from the founders' grandmother's belongings from the 1920s, back then when they knew how to party. The design was slightly modernized and recreated by Ateliers Dinand.
Laugh With Me LeeLee, Something About Sofia and My Place or Yours Gina come packaged in a 1-oz. bottle for $36. A holiday gift set will contain a 1-oz. juice and a 2-oz. body lotion, retailing for $46." Crescent Row launches in July 2009. The Crescent Row trio will launch in 750 U.S. doors July 1, including Sephora, Macy's, Bloomingdale's and Henri Bendel, as well as in Benefit's freestanding boutiques and online. The San Francisco-bred brand will simultaneously launch in 950 international doors across the U.K., Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Russia.
Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder is fast becoming a favorite best-selling product for the brand. You've read about it here already, and you'll read about it all over the internet if you're beauty savvy. There's a reason - it's wonderful!
What makes it special?

Join Chanel for the journey to No 5 ~ The Film
French film actress Audrey Tautou, famous for her role in Amelie and soon playing legendary Coco Chanel in a film about her life, has become the muse in a Chanel No. 5 mini film, directed by Jean Pierre Jeunet. While in the past, Chanel No. 5 commercials ran on TV and in the cinema, this is the first time a Chanel marketing campaign has kicked off on the internet, launching online globally on 5 May 2009. The brand is renewing its campaigns to appeal to younger consumers who are unaware of No. 5. The film unveiling takes place on 5/5 (Chanel No 5 ...), the same day the designer first introduced her fragrance to the world.
Make an online reservation to see No 5, The Film on May 5th. Click here to view the prelaunch teaser of the picture and confirm your reservation.
Couldn't wait to try the new wholly french organic fragrances by perfumeur Olivia Giacobetti. These are scents even the most sensitive nose will admire. I've tried them all and what I can say is that they are intrinsically subtle. They're a hint of fragrance not at all overpowering. That they are petrochemical and synthetic free allows us to experience the integrity of the ingredients and enjoy each combination for what they are in essence.
You can read more about the Honoré des Prés line of ECOCERT fragrances here. There are currently five fragrance combinations to choose from, all with their own unique story. My favorite? Well, surprisingly it's Honoré's Trip - an explosive cocktail of pure tangerine extracts, Mediterranean oranges, all yellow and green lemons, together with spicy pepper taken from trees in the Philippine Islands. Before trying, I expected to fall in love with Bonte's Bloom for its summery freshness or Sexy Angelic with its descriptive, powdery sweet elixir of love, but Honoré's Trip won my heart.
You can find the collection of Honoré des Prés fragrances at one of my favorite, chic, green-minded shops - Spirity Beauty Lounge. Settle in a bit before clicking as you'll want to devour everything you find there. xo

Combining nature and science to benefit skin, new high-end skincare brand Luxtural is fast becoming a celebrity favorite. Among those purported to be fans - Demi Moore, Angelina Jolie, Mariska Hargitay, Jenny McCarthy, Lucy Liu, Simon Cowell, Debra Messing and Joy Bryant.
The three launch products Silk Premonition, Sophisticated Veil and Mystique Fountain all claim anti-aging benefits, but the main focus of these luxurious products, created by Pnina Vilinsky, is extreme hydration.
These formulas are very light and easily absorbed into skin. They are delightful in texture. Receiving fragrance from their essential oil ingredients, they are not heavy, overbearing or harsh. These are products that leave skin with a silky feel, even and smooth. They're both fresh and exhilarating.
SOPHISTICATED VEIL - 35ml - $186
Facial Anti-Aging Deep Moisturizing Serum
It works to prevent your skin’s biggest challenge - premature aging. While supplying your skin with the most effective and advanced anti-aging ingredients (peptides, and Vitamin E and C with long-term benefits), Sophisticated Veil immediately enhances your skin, making it plumped and firm with a distinctly supple and beautiful look. Its deep moisturization improves and refreshes your skin’s appearance on a daily basis. As its name implies, this unique serum gently wraps your skin in a nourishing “veil” that is sheer, breathable and very protective. Preventing loss of hydration, it instantly gives your skin a “lifted” and brightened appearance, and makes your skin smoother and softer to the touch.
SILK PREMONITION - 40ml - $150
Facial Deep Moisturizing Anti-Aging Lotion
As it moisturizes, nourishes and enhances the natural skin barrier, it also protects your skin from free radicals with our Special Exotic Extract, a one of a kind complex. Elegant and rich in natural ingredients and essential oils, Silk Premonition helps refine your skin’s look instantly, rejuvenating its overall appearance, giving you glamorous looking skin that feels soft, smooth and silky to the touch.

MYSTIQUE FOUNTAIN - 100ml - $78
Facial Deep Hydrating Rainy Mist
A superb hydrator for any skin type. Mystique Fountain tones and calms, cools and refreshes your skin, naturally protecting it from environmental damage as it reduces inflammation. Based on our Pure Pacific Ocean Rainwater (clean, soft water gathered before ever touching the earth, naturally free of harsh chemicals or contaminants) Mystique Fountain actually aids your skin in drawing moisture from the air. This also allows it to be absorbed faster and, most importantly, helps your skin retain the moisture it has.

We first introduced you to RMS Beauty in early February. There, you learned about this remarkable brand of organic cosmetics, created by Rose-Marie Swift, a renowned makeup artist in her own right. Based on living and organic principles, each product is created to hydrate and illuminate vital, radiant skin. This is color cosmetics with a skincare-bent, for sure.
The products are balmy and very easily applied. My first introduction to rms was via the "un"cover up concealer. It's quite unique in its balm-like texture yet impeccable ability to hide imperfections, conceal and illuminate skin. My next foray into the line was to try the lip2cheek. This is a unique formula that combines hydration and protection with mineral color for both lips and cheeks. Rose-Marie called upon her over 20 years of experience as a makeup artist to some of the world's most beautiful faces in deciding upon the shades and colors for this product. They are universally flattering. As with the "un"cover up, the lip2cheek is skincare quality in its balmy yet creamy texture and applies effortlessly with either the swipe of a finger or brush. You only need use rms products one time to notice the difference in texture, quality and benefit.
rms beauty is offering our For the Love of Beauty readership the opportunity to win one of their fabulous products. Fill in the little form below and enter to win a Cream Eye Shadow in the shade of Myth. Their cream eyeshadows double as an eye cream to nourish and moisturize the eye area. The formula creates a subtle refined metallic glow without large glitter particles that can detract from a modern look.
NOTE: One (1) winner will be chosen at random to receive this prize. Duplicate and incomplete entries will be disqualified. Some restrictions may apply. Entries will be accepted through 11:55 pm on Sun., 5/10/09.

Extracted from herbs (rosemary, basil), plants (green tea, watercress, turmeric), and fruits and vegetables (blueberries, grape seeds, tomatoes), these antioxidants have complementary effects that strengthen, protect, and promote healthier, more youthful-looking skin. These products are as scrumptious as they are effective. You'll always find several of their products in my bathroom. (read more of my items on Alchimie Forever here.)
