If the idea of being away from your smart phone sends you into a state of shock or you simply love technology then I bet you'd also happen to fall in love with a fragrance that is inspired by the gadget that takes over a big part of our lives, the iPhone. Jacomo's It's Me For Her looks so much like your it you could end up grabbing it off the kitchen counter before you leave for work rather than your acutal phone! Now don't get me wrong, the packaging is very, very modern and cool but the bonus part of course is the amazing scent! Spazmag.com thought it was such a cool concept they had to blog about it and gave it two thumbs up. It comes in both a his/hers fragrance option with the woman's being warm and sensual with notes of pineapple, mandarin and jasmine and the men's vivacious and woody with lemon, patchouli and amber aromas. Both are incredibly classy scents and the bottle alone makes for a wonderful gift!

I always get a kick out of the lacquer names every season from Butter London. Although most of them have 'brit-slang' origins I tend to have heard them before, however for a few from the latest Fall/Winter 2012 collection I had to hit urban dictionary…
Butter London Trustafarian is a sage green shade flecked with gold. You don't have to be a 'privileged white kid who subscribes to the hippie lifestyle,' as urban dictionary explains to wear this particular shade.
Butter London Lovely Jubbly is a vibrant magenta flecked with red, blue, and gold micro particles. I haven't been on a drug induced trip but it definitely has a throwback to the 70's with a distinct retro vibe. This is a Studio 54 polish if there ever was one.
Butter London Gobsmacked is a heavily pigmented charcoal gray lacquer that gives a slightly textured appearance. I for one love anything gray borderlining black shades and I like that is has some subtle glitter to it. It's comparable to a starry night!
Butter London Shag is my favorite standout from the range. I haven't seen a shade like it before with it's orange burgundy fusion. Almost looks like an antique polish and think it's perfect for the fall season.
Butter London Dodgy Barnett blurs the line between gray and silver. Highly holographic it almost resembles liquid metal on your fingertips...

1. With a coveted line of chic products that stand alone are simply elegant in every way, what made you want to create a perfume?
Well, I adore the scent of my oils. And it seems everyone else does too. So I made a perfume to mirror the scent of the oils, so it would be a lasting fragrance.
2. As your line is known for it's exquisite hair, face and body oils, when I heard you were doing a perfume I figured it would be a rollerball perfume oil. What went into the decision to create an eau de parfum?
I am old fashioned I guess. I am not a big fan of rollerball perfumes. I wanted exactly what we made.
3. Upon smelling this lovely fragrance one would know that it's unmistakably Rodin, however with a twist. Can you let our readers know what the inspiration was behind the fragrance and the notes used?
It was quite simple. I just wanted something to mirror the delicious fragrance of the jasmine and neroli of my oils.
4. There seems to be a big customer demand for more, more, more Rodin products. Can we expect anymore fabulous additions in the future?
Yes. We are making a scented candle for holiday, and a wonderful facial cleanser for early 2013.
