Mariah Carey’s Fragrance Earns Fifi Nom; Guerlain Brings Back Shalimar



• The Fragrance Foundation announced the semi-finalists of the Fifi Awards, the Oscars of the fragrance industry (what industry doesn't have its own Oscars?). Mariah Carey’s “M” scored a nod in the luxe women’s category. Those ads weren’t airbrushed in vain! [Now Smell This]
• Guerlain relaunches the classic Eau de Shalimar in two weeks. It was first created in 1925. [Moment/NYT]

• The China Glaze eco-collection launches with nature-inspired colors. Neon green is “Tree Hugger,” bright yellow is “Solar Power,” deep gray is “Recycle,” and bright aqua is “Shower Together.” So, what — now we all know what a girl is trying to say if her nails are bright blue? [All Laquered Up]
• Sun exposure isn't just bad for your skin, it could turn your nail polish yellowish too. Such a waste. Yello-Out is a top coat that prevents discoloration. [BellaSugar]

• Aromatherapy comes in a spray can with H20’s shower mist. It’s offered in three scents, but might be a bit strong for small bathrooms. [Beauty Snob]

• Sephora launched its Natural + Organic initiative today. Even though no FDA regulations exist for “natural” beauty products, the folks over at the makeup superstore set their own standards, and are showcasing the brands boasting natural ingredients — like Urban Decay, Skyn Iceland, and Bare Escentuals — more prominently in stores.
