New and Notable from Shoppers Drug Mart - Fragrance Edition - Marc Jacobs Lola Velvet, Guess Seductive, Eva Langoria and Pure Nautica!

So it was a year ago now when you were forced to listen to me whine about the new Marc Jacobs fragrance Lola and how much I hated that they had ruined what could have been a really cute bottle by making the big flower on top in rubber - hated it!  Marc Jacobs obviously reads our blog and feels bad about this so to celebrate the first anniversary of Lola, he has pleased me immensely by putting out this special velvet edition - love it!

Lola Marc Jacobs Velvet Edition - 50ml EDP - $79 - same fragrance, much better bottle!  It has top notes of pink peppercorn, pear d'anjoy and ruby red grapefruit, a heart of fuchsia peony with soft touches of rose and geranium and a base of smooth vanilla, tonka bean and creamy musk.  To be honest I didn't think I liked it in the original bottle but I was probably just being pissy about it - this is a fruity floral, but it smells a lot more fruity on me so I'm a fan!  Get it while you can - you'll also find it at Holt Renfrew, The Bay, Sears, Sephora and Murale.
Guess Seductive - 50ml EDT - $69, 75ml EDT - $85 - top notes of zesty bergamot, vibrant blackcurrant and crispy pear, a heart of orange flower, exotic jasmine and florentine orris and a base of warm vanilla, spicy olibanum and musky cashmere wood.  Love the bottle, love the fragrance.  I would wear this scent to seduce Taylor Lautner or maybe go shopping.  It's a little bit fruity, a little bit exotic and a lot sexy!  The department stores will also be carrying a Body Cream - 200ml - $35 and Shower Cream - 200ml - $35 if you like to layer!
Eva by Eva Langoria - 50ml EDP - $63 - top notes of bergamot, citruses, neroli and aldehydes, heart notes of jasmine, freesia, lily of the valley and violet and base notes of musk, sandalwood and amber.  I wanted to like it, I love her character on Desperate Housewives but alas, it's just too floral for my tastes!  If you are a floral kind of girl you might like this one so check it out!
And now that you smell good, let's give the guys a little something:

Pure Nautica - 50ml EDT - $57 - top notes of sea spray accord, mandarin, bergamot, middle notes of ambergris, saffron and lotus flower and base notes of driftwood, suede and patchouli.  This smells really fresh and masculine and is exactly the kind of scent I like to mark my men with.  It's the kind of scent you would notice but not as "what scent is that guy wearing?" but more like "gee that guy smells good"!  There is also a 100ml EDT at department stores for $75 if you like to buy in bulk!
