Celebrities, fashion icons, and music stars arrived in New York to celebrate the opening of the latest exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute, "China: Through the Looking Glass.”

Mother Nature has been teasing us with glimpses of warmer weather and in turn, our daydreams have been filled with tropical islands and girly cocktails. Unfortunately, summer is still quite some time away and that’s why we’re putting the scent spotlight on Serge Lutens’ Datura Noir.
