New fragrances from Avon

IN CELEBRATION of its 43rd anniversary in the Philippines, Avon is unveiling the newest addition to Imari — its original line of sensual fragrances — with Imari Rouge, “its most daring fragrance to date,” according to a company release. “Each spray is designed to elevate one’s sensuality and pushes you to go after what you want with an unquestionable attitude and drive.” This Chypre-Oriental fragrance greets with top notes made from rich mandarin, dainty pink peppercorn, and upcycled apple oil. The scent later reveals a soulful mix of rose, iris, and peach accord. Finally, the base notes are made from Indonesian patchouli, benzoin, and warm notes of vanilla.

Rustan’s Beauty Addict sale is on

RUSTAN’S annual Beauty Addict event is a bit more restrained this year, and has a different trajectory, considering the times. In line with the theme “Transcend,” Rustan’s The Beauty Source is placing a focus on “Looking Good, Thinking Good, Feeling Good, and Doing Good.” What was once a month of scoring beauty deals is now a series of talks throughout the month (the beauty deals are still there). The next talk will be on Sept. 15, with Tatler Homes editor-in-chief Stephanie Zubiri preparing a healthy recipe and beauty tips (from inside out), via her Instagram account (@stephanizezubiri) to promote Rustan’s Feel & Do Good campaign. As for the scoring deals on beauty products, exclusive offers await Beauty Addict members for the rest of the month (and beyond). From Sept. 1 to Nov. 30, get a Viajecito Splashkit Sport Set for a minimum purchase of P20,000, and enjoy up to five times more points on all purchases in all Rustan’s Stores and through the Personal Shopper on Call program from Sept. 11-30.
