I am staring at the back page of my New York Times Sunday paper right now, and there is a full-page ad: “Introducing Donna Karan, The Fragrance Collection. A wardrobe of seductive fragrances.”
Donna Karan Chaos — squeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!
Donna Karan Signature — ????
Donna Karan Black Cashmere — squeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!! they killed it off to rebottle it?
Donna Karan Fuel for Men — isn’t that one of those long lost deals Basenoters are always longing for? Like Chaos? I don’t see it on their list, oddly, but there’s a bottle for $175 at a resale joint.
And those four essences — lavender, wenge, labdanum and jasmine, which were lovely but had fairly limited distribution. I love the wenge in particular.
August 13, 4 to 6pm Beauty level, Bergdorf NYC –
Hokay, SOMEBODY IN NEW YORK, PLEEEASE GET ON THIS. I have many questions, like: do they smell the same? BTW all the bottles look the same, I can’t see anything about the sizes. They’re black cylinders with very plain colored (gold or silver) labels, no concentrations listed.
UPDATE: A friend just emailed me a photo, Chaos is an EDP. Also since the pic looks like it’s sitting on his bookshelf, I assume these are available for purchase now, not starting Weds. Can’t quite read it, but I
think it’s 1.7 ozs, don’t hold me to it. No pricing info. NOPE — 3.4 for $85!!!! That’s practically free, in my book. Go, Donna!
#2 — Dudes, you can order it! See comment below!! Cheap!! Also, Fuel’s topnotes are gasoline and pineapple, and I don’t think my leg is being pulled.
#3 — we think “Signature” is the DK robo-duck scent rebottled.
Maybe. We are pretty sure, yes.
#4 But will Chaos smell the same? I guess we will know soon enough. Here, I’m gonna consult my crystal ball and make a completely random guess for the fun of it — it will be “close” but somehow tweaked for the market — slightly more gourmand, maybe? Pink pepper? Snerk. Also, is this a trend? Are we having a Woods Moment (Sensuous, Magnifique, sort of)? I am all for it.
PS. Anyone else watch the opening ceremonies of the Olympics? Wow, they were beautiful! I was expecting something … less and was thrilled to be watching on our big-screen TV.
