Smell Like Olivia Palermo With Rochas' New Fragrance!

It was back in February when we first heard the exciting news that Olivia Palermo is the face of the new Rochas fragrance and today, here's a first look at the fashionista looking utterly dreamy in the campaign. How beaut! 'On one hand, it’s entirely new. On the other hand, it really connects back to the core heritage of the brand,' explained Bill Brace, vice president of Procter & Gamble Prestige. 

The new spritz, named Les Cascades de Rochas, isn't the first from the house: way back in 1970, Nicola Mamounas created Eau de Rochas – which remains the brand's best selling eau despite two modern interpretations, Eau Sensuelle and Eau de Rochas Fraîche, which followed in 2009 and 2012 repectively.

This latest addition to the collection maintains the fresh, floral theme of its predecessors with mango, pinapple, musk, mango and bergamot all taking centre-stage. The more unexpected addition of notes such as Sichuan pepper however, makes for a contemporary twist which will inneviably attract a younger consumer too, a factor which we reckon was obviously key in choosing Palermo as the face too.

And the inspiration behind this one? A Parisian fountain in the middle of summer no less. Meanwhile, it’s also worth mentioning that the second part of the scent’s name is Eclat d’Agrumes or “burst of citrus, ” so named because in-house nose Jean-Michel Duriez  dreamed up the scent concept while on a trip to Sicily and cited a desire to simultaneously bottle both heat and freshness. “There, you have mandarin, the warmth of Etna, [the notion of] the red earth,” said Duriez. Cute right?

Launching in France in May, we only hope this one will role out to Blighty soon.

    2015 Chevrolet Trax small SUV rolls back to America

    For the past two years, car shoppers from Acapulco to Winnipeg could wander into their Chevy dealers and kick the tires on a city-sized sport utility vehicle named the Trax — and about 90,000 have done so. Today, Chevy revealed the version of the Trax it will bring to the United States, for those less well-heeled buyers who want the shape of an SUV without the window sticker they usually carry.

    Ford Transit Skyliner concept revives the ultra-luxury van

    “Once you do stand-up, you don’t want to go back.” No, we’re not talking about comedy, but rather an emerging trend in luxury transport that’s bringing us ever taller, more capacious, more pimpdillyicious limousines. The quote came from a Ford designer, Tim Stoehr, predicting an increase in interest in limos based on big vans like the new Transit. Of course, these are nothing new; up-fitters have taken quite kindly to the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, and apparently Ford is chomping at the bit to get in on the action, too. So Ford enlisted the help of the largest Ford dealer in the world, Galpin Auto Sports in Van Nuys, Calif., to help design and build its first super-lux Transit concept, dubbed the Skyliner.

    Automakers worldwide have gradually (some would say grudgingly) attempted to make their high-profit and highly popular SUVs as efficient and clean-running as their lower weight passenger cars — namely through the grafting of a plug-in hybrid system.

    Amazon to release smartphone later this year: report

    Amazon is preparing to release a smartphone in the second half of 2014, thrusting itself into a market already crowded with Apple and Samsung models, The Wall Street Journal reported. The company aims to announce its new product by the end of June and ship to customers by the end of September in time for the holidays, the Journal said in a Friday report, citing unnamed people briefed on the matter. Amazon, it said, hopes to differentiate its phone from other models with a screen that displays hologram-like three-dimensional images, which can be viewed without special glasses. Earlier this month the retailer unveiled a new media streaming device, Amazon Fire TV, which it touted as simplifying the experience of watching video online.

    One dead as S. Korea ferry with 476 passengers sinks

    South Korea's coastguard said Wednesday one person had been killed as it struggled to rescue 476 people -- mostly high school students -- aboard a ferry that ran aground and sank off the southern coast. "The ferry is almost completely submerged," Lee said, adding that a detachment of South Korean Navy SEALS were taking part in the rescue. Of the 450 passengers on board the ferry bound for the southern resort island of Jeju, 325 were students from a high school in Ansan, south of Seoul. The 6,825-tonne ferry, which had sailed out of the western port of Incheon on Tuesday evening, ran into trouble some 20 kilometres (13 miles) off the island of Byungpoong.
