2010 What's New in Review Spring/Summer Edition

Dave & I just returned from the NY trade show and we wanted to share with you the highlights of the many new fantastic fragrances and products launching in 2010.

Nest Fragrances is launching a new candle, Blue Garden. The fragrance has lush green notes, a dew drop accord and hyacinth on top, forget me not, blue hydrangea and honeysuckle mid notes, and plush oak moss, sandalwood and cotton flower base notes. This new scent is a great compliment to their already fabulous Everyday Collection. It's a fresh, garden scent, sure to brighten any day. The proceeds for Nest Fragrances sale of the Blue Garden candle goes to Autism Speaks. Harry and Laura Slatkin have a child with autism so this is a great way for them to raise money for an important cause.

Tocca is launching a new fragrance for their eau de parfum collection. Bianca has notes of rose, tea, lemon and sugar for a perfect summer scent. It's slightly feminine, slightly sweet and simply divine!

The new Ella fragrance by DayNa Decker was a fragrance finalist at the 2010 NYIGF. Ella is a glamorous, sexy, sweet floral explosion of mandarin, citrus, jasmine, tuberose and sandalwood. Ella is available in their signature, translucent wax chandel with a wood wick as well as a reed diffuser.

K. Hall's new Shore-Line fragrance is already their #1 best seller. Shore-line has watery notes, perfect for summer, and is a great compliment to their washed cotton collection. Shore-Line is available in vegetable wax candles, diffusers and bar soap as well as counter top cleaner and dish soap.

Archipelago Botanicals launched their Private Reserve Collection featuring black wax and black containers. The collection includes five fragrances: Stem, Lust, Grass, Leather and Zest. The simple fragrances pop in their bold, black packaging.

Archipelago also created a new bath/body collection based on their best selling scent, Havana. The new Boticario de Havana collection includes a soy wax candle, reed diffuser, bar soap, body lotion, bath salts and more. The fragrance blends coffee, tobacco flower, sugar cane and pineapple. The addition of the pineapple note makes this a sumptuous bath/body scent and this is a great new unisex scent that works well across all products.

Voluspa is replacing their Basic Black and Basic Creme Collections with their new Maison Noir and Maison Blanc Collections. The new selection includes a 12oz (100 hour) chunky candlepot and an adorable 2-wick tin (55 hour) tin that is a must-get gift. There are 8 fragrances in each collection. Vervaine Olive Leaf, Saijo Persimmon and Crisp Champagne are the only fragrances from the basic collection to transfer over into the new collections. There are so many new, amazing fragrances in these new collections that you'll never miss the old Basic Black and Creme.

Our favorite new fragrance at the show goes to Voluspa's Suede Blanc. We like it's leathery notes, it's unisex appeal and cozy scent for these cool winter months.

All of these products and more will be available in-store and on our website in the coming months. If you have any questions regarding these fragrances or any new products, please do not hesitate to contact us.
