Today, Viktor & Rolf’s newest fragrance hits shelves at Saks. Following up the wildly popular Flowerbomb, the newest, BONBON, is sure to be a huge hit. The New York store is celebrating with a personal appearance by designers Viktor Horsting & Rolf Snoeren. Other stores around the country have festivities as well! If you are a local here in Tulsa, our store will have sweet treats and champagne this Saturday – how can you say no to that!?
A little more about the scent: I’ve been testing this guy out for a couple days and find it unique, flirty and uplifting. Notes include mandarin, orange, caramel, peach and jasmine. Gaïc and cedar woods combined with my beloved sandalwood smooth out the more uplifting top notes.
The raspberry-toned glass bottle is shaped into a bow reflecting the playfulness of the scent. Craftsman Pochet du Courval achieved the challenging design with a paten process and added pink tones into the contour of the bow.
Available at Saks Fifth Avenue.

A couple weeks ago, I had the honor of hosting a Fall Trends brunch at the local Saks Fifth Avenue. We covered fashion trends in the contempory department including jewel tones, leather and lace. I combed the beauty level for what’s hot this fall for makeup to go with the season’s styles. Here are some of my picks:
Aerin Weekday Palette is the centerpoint of a new line by Estee Lauders grandaughter and current creative director of Estee Lauder, Aerin Lauder. Inspired by the busy lifestyle of working women, this fall style palette is mistake-proof and neutral. The pallette contains two eyeshadows, blush and a highlighter.
Laura Mercier Bonne Mine Healthy Glow is another palette that is all about the healthy, radiant glow. Laura designed this universal compact to “wake up” their skin. It contains a bronzer veil, two cheek veils and two glow veils. These creamy, nourishing shades can be used to contour and highlight. I love just applying with my fingers and letting my creative juices flow. 100% of the profits from the sale of this product will be donated to the Laura Mercier Ovarian Cancer Fund.
Yves Saint Laurent Le Teint Touche Éclat Foundation SPF 30 is inspired by the cult-classic product, Touche Eclat. The innovative foundation comes in 17 shades and is superbly lightweight. Coverage is medium with the radiant finish we saw all over the runways. It has that slightly heavier coverage I crave in the fall and winter without feeling the least bit heavy or cakey.
Estée Lauder Pure Color Nail Lacquer is unmatched this fall. No one has done jewel tone nails better. I love the rich blue of “Blue Bloods”. The metallic component is measured so it still is sophisticated. Viper is an equally vampy jewel tone in green.
Lancôme L’Absolu Nu in Rouge Riselle is my pick for a bordeaux lip this fall. It is the perfect balanced color with a hydrating formula. The key to this bold lip is healthy lips and this stuff can heal while you wear it. You can apply with a lip pencil for a full, opaque look or try applying with your ring finger for just a wash of the seasonal color.
