Luscious Pink by Mariah Carey – Coming Soon

As reported by india-server.com, popcrunch.com, and highbridnation.com

Mariah Carey has recently announced details regarding the new perfume that she has been working on with Elizabeth Arden. The fragrance is set to be a flirty floral, with notes including the Tahitian Tiare flower, lily of the valley, pink peony, and white musk*.

Set to launch in August 2008, the bottle will be the same shape and design of her original fragrance (“M”), but this time with a girly, romantic hue of pink with a mother-of-pearlesque sheen in which blue and yellow will also be present. Interestingly enough, the bottle was not designed by Mariah – it was created by Jean Antretter, the senior design director at Elizabeth Arden.

Says Mariah, “Elizabeth Arden has been a fantastic partner and the end creation of Luscious Pink is beyond my expectatons. The response from my fans with my debut scent was overwhelming, and I can’t wait to see what happens with my second Luscious fragrance.”

Of the scent, Mariah explains that it is, “feminine, flirtatious and fun, and truly reflects where I am in my life now.”

Mariah will have some competition this August, as that is also when fellow songbird Jessica Simpson will release her debut perfume, Fancy, which is an altogether different scent (word has it that Fancy will be a floral-oriental fragrance, which can sometimes be a bit on the stronger/spicier side of scents).

NOTES (as listed on sephora.com): Grapefruit, Seringa Flower, Apple, Pink Peony, Apricot, Hibiscus Flower Tea, Violet, Musk.

I was captivated by all things Salvatore Ferragamo, and decided to give this perfume a go. I figured with the success of the other scents we’ve sampled in his line, no harm would come of this purchase. Plus, anything in a cute bottle with grapefruit as a top note is worth the price of a mini.

CLASSIFICATION: Feminine, floral, fresh, fruity

AGE GROUP: Perfect for anyone

At work, a new girl that we had just hired always smelled wonderful to me. I finally asked her one day what she was wearing, and it was Ralph Lauren Blue. It was always in the back of my mind to go out and get it for myself, but I had put it off for years, until about a month ago. Some things just aren’t the same as you remember them…
