Theirry Mugler's first fragrance, and one of our personal faves, Angel, is a gorgeous oriental gourmand scent with a hint of bergamot and helional. If you're that glamour girl that wants to get noticed, try a spritz of this all-out glam scent ASAP!

Fashionable and fun, Jimmy Choo's first perfume is fun, warm, rich, and good enough for the confident, intelligent, fashionista type of girl! Snag a bit of this fragrance with fruity chypre and woody depths.

Feel like a million in Paco Rabanne's Lady Million perfume, a scent that is sure to please the noses of those who suround you. Lady Million includes notes of raspberry, orange flower, white honey, lemon, neroli, and jasmine. Ideal for any type of night, this mature scent will be sure to last through any situation.

This beautiful blend of floral orchids, violets, roses and blackberry musk create a sensual aroma that will bring the a good way! Spray a bit into the creases of your arms before you leave for a luscious scent that will last all day and night. 

The equivalent to the 'little black dress' of fragrances, Nuit pour femme is chic, sensual, and super feminine. Mix it up with notes of jasmine, peach and sandalwood with Nuit Pour Femme by Hugo Boss.

Be the center of attention when you let everyone know you're wearing the first black perfume that sprays on clear...the fierce fragrance, FAME, of Lady Gaga is the only one that can manage. Notes include atropa belladonna, incense, honey, saffron, apricot, and tiger orchid.
Marc Jacob's Dot is a fragrance for the young and lively, capturing a charming, upbeat spirit. Dot carries a lush, floral scent perfect for every eclectic, spontaneous female.  Would you try it? Notes include jasmine, coconut water, orange blossom, creamy vanilla, driftwood, and sensual musk.

Light and fresh, set the mood with Dolce and Gabbana's Light Blue, a light floral fragrance with a combination of fruity notes, including apples, bluebells, jasmine, bamboo and white rose. It's fun, it's light, and fresh...what type of night will you set with this scent?

What We're Wearing: Fragrance & Beauty

Ever wonder what the staff at is wearing?! We'll we thought you would be wondering that...which is why we're letting you know what we're wearing today!

Mary Lou, from our accounting department, says she wears a variety of perfumes, each day it's different. She loves Calvin Klein Euphoria, Tresor and Hypnotic by Lancome, Ellen Tracy, and Sarah Jessica Parker...oh and let's not forget Juicy Couture

Carole, our creative director says her hair is 'frizzy' and 'it's just not the bomb'. Her new hair care stylist recently used 2 L'Oreal products for her color treated, frizzy, dry, (even crinkly) hair, the results? AMAZING! Carole promptly went and picked out those same 2 items her stylist used from our warehouse and made her puchase. Wondering what those miracle products are? L'Oreal Serie Expert Vitamino Color Shampoo, which has a UV filter, helping to keep colored hair last longer. Then the other product? L'Oreal Serie Expert Absolut Repair Masque for very damaged hair. Carole said, "Let me tell you that stuff really worked like a charm. My hair styled wondrously after that treatment. I highly recommend the repair masque as a twice a month – you just can't go wrong."

Assunta, that's me, is with Mary Lou...I have a ton of perfumes (thanks to working at, it's almost impossible to NOT want (and try) every new fragrance that comes in and out of the warehouse. Some of my faves that I wear on a daily basis, well lately it's been Angel by Thierry Mugler. The scent sprayed on me at first is super strong, but after say, 30 minutes, it smells amazing and works great with my body chemistry. Another fave of mine is Flowerbomb by Viktor and Rolf, but I have to say... I am definitely an Angel by Thierry Mugler kinda girl, I have the Angel Violet, Angel Lily, Angel Rose, and probably another few variations of the Angel scent. What can i say, I love his scents.

Steve, a marketing team member here, wears his Versace Man Eau Fraiche. He says he wore it here on his interview and definitely thinks it helped him make that good first impression. The masculine scent includes notes of lemon, rosewood, tarragon, musk and sage, a great cologne with flexibility to wear it in a number of situations, whether it's hanging out on the weekend catching a game at the bar or a day at the office.

And last but not least...

Janene, a member of our creative team, loves a spicy scent, especially Gucci Guilty, which mixes mandarin, pink pepper, lilac, geranium, peach and patchouli notes in one that will really make an impression wherever you wear it. She says, "I love Gucci Guilty because a sprtiz of this makes me feel's an instant pick me up."
