Fragrance Friday - Philosophy's Grace Scents.

One if the most fantabulous things about the Philosophy fragrances are that you can layer them. Fragrance over fragrance, over shampoo, shower gels, or moisturizers. Anywhere you wear them, particularly any of the "grace" fragrances, will leave you smelling super sweet, and fresh. Never, ever overly done.

In case you do not know of the Philosophy Grace scents, let me introduce them to you.

Amazing Grace
The original grace fragrance is Amazing Grace. This scent is a very light and feminine blend of soft, floral blossoms. With a hint of musk, more noticeable on some people than others, this scent is an everyday fresh and airy choice.

Pure Grace
Like almost the prettiest smelling soap and water, clean and fresh, this scent is not like any other I have used in a fragrance. The fresh blossoms in this scent are lighter and the musk more clean, almost crisp.

Inner Grace
This is another very soft floral scent. Light and fresh, like sniffing blossoms through the air. This one is the lighter and almost more "girly" of the scents.

Baby Grace
If you want to conjure up thoughts of a baby or want to smell like the most pure and innocent, cleanest of bambinos, then this one is for you. I love this scent, and I have yet to meet someone who doesn’t. It almost evokes calm and memories of childhood right after spraying.

You can mix and match any of the scents to make them lighter or more floral. And as everyone is unique, every combination is as well. On the weekends, I love to use the Baby Grace perfumed body lotion, layering it with one spray of the fragrance and then dab the Pure Grace on my pulse points. Dreamy!

My lovely friend Christina from eBeautyDaily went to the secret preview party back in February with the Heatherette boys. You really need to check out her experience to learn all about the collection, the inspiration, and a bit about how star struck she was to meet Traver Rains and Richie Rich.

Whether you are a good girl or a bad girl, Heatherette is tailored just for you. 

Let me know what you are able to get your hands on!

CHANEL Summer 2008 Makeup Collection.

April cannot get here soon enough. Making me long for warmer days and a little bit of a golden glow (fake), are the Summer collections being announced. And this one is another beauty.

The CHANEL Summer 2008 Summer Collection is a definite must-have for the season.

The heat-baked sands, golden browns, and beautiful sunset bronzes have me heading off somewhere tropical.

FACE: For a summer face based on the ultimate bronze, CHANEL offers the new SOLEIL TAN DE CHANEL Moisturizing Bronzing Powder in five versatile shades, plus BRONZE UNIVERSEL DE CHANEL Sun Illuminator.

EYES: Complement this sun-kissed skin tone with OMBRE ESSENTIELLE Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Tigre (bronze), Nomade (pink rose), Khaki (khaki green), and Safari (stone brown); amp up the shine with LUMIÈRES FACETTES Iridescent Effects Eyes in Oasis, a quad containing khaki, bronze, coral, and pink shimmer, or OMBRE D’EAU Fluid Iridescent Eyeshadow in Atoll (golden sand). For long-lasting definition, STYLO YEUX WATERPROOF Long-Lasting Eyeliner comes in an exotic new shade, Vert Bronze (green bronze), while INIMITABLE WATERPROOF Mascara Multi-Dimensionnel is now available in Emeraude, a shimmering, jade-green.

LIPS: For warm-weather lips, ROUGE HYDRABASE Creme Lipstick arrives in Leopard (golden coral) and Rose Flamingo (a flamingo pink); ROUGE ALLURE Luminous Satin Lip Colour keeps things soft with Naïve (pinkish nude) and Curious (nude brown). AQUALUMIÈRE Sheer Colour Lipshine SPF15 adds a sheer shot of colour in Zanzibar (soft peach) and Mauritius (bronzed coral).

NAILS: For a final touch, LE VERNIS Nail Colour arrives in Antilope, a frosted golden-brown, and Flamingo, a bright tropical pink.

Look for this beautiful collection next month at your favorite CHANEL counter, specialty store or online, of course, at chanel.com.
