In the fragrance world, looks are as important as scents. In 1981, Jacomo won a Fifi Award for the “Best Packaging of the Year by a Fragrance,” and the company is crossing its fingers for another win this year with the newest “It’s Me” collection.
The latest fragrances from Jacomo, It’s Me for Her and It’s Me for Him, break the rules of perfume bottle design. Instead of encasing the fragrances in heavy, thick bottles, the packaging is instead an homage to the pure lines and high-tech designs of the latest smartphones. The bottles are svelte, fit perfectly into a pocket and include an integrated pump. The scents and bottle design capture the happenings of today’s modern world, as cell phones seem to forever follow their owners.
It’s Me for Her offers a colorful, musky fragrance with tangy and fruity top notes. Dive further into the scent to uncover a gourmet touch of spring flowers and dried fruit. The base notes of musk, sandlewood, iris powder and jasmine help round out the scent for a fragrance that’s perfect for day or night.
It’s Me for Him is a mature fragrance that steers away from the aftershave-like scents every other guy seems to wear. The fresh, woodsy fragrance at first hints at citrus notes such as grapefruit and lemon, then gently lead you into a field of jasmine, violet and lavender. The base notes of amber, vanilla and musk mature the fragrance into a scent that will make a man out of a frat boy.
Smiling is a universal gesture that means the same thing in just about every part of the world – contentedness. But to really sell your smile, you have to smile with your eyes, too. Take a look at da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa.” She barely has a smirk on her face, but the way the corners of her eyes turn upward gives you no doubt that she is happy about something. Smiling is a great way to give off an air of confidence, appear hospitable and convey happiness.

With the help of the Kevyn Aucoin Eyelash Curler, you, too, can transform your lashes into the red carpet-worthy look that graced magazine covers for years.

The days of sleek, super-straight hair are out, and natural hair is in. So go ahead and Free Your Mane. The red carpet is full of your favorite celebs unleashing their naturally curly and wavy tresses. But here’s the caveat: While wild and natural is in, the f-word (frizz) is still a big no-no.
Naturally curly and wavy locks can seem like a nightmare to maintain because they are generally drier and more fragile than “normal” hair types. To help control the frizz and flyaways, you need to give your hair what it craves – moisture. Free Your Mane pomade delivers the moisture your tresses desire as well as the hold you seek. Plus, it’s perfect for smoothing down those unruly little hairs that always seem to escape your do.
