Fujifilm, For Your Face; Chanel Iman’s Diptyque Devotion; And More…


You may associate Fujifilm with cameras, but the Japanese brand has its sights set on skincare domination. Astalift, its antiaging line, has become a bona fide hit since launching domestically in 2007, and after a successful expansion into China last year, the company has orchestrated distribution deals in France, Germany, and Spain. We sincerely hope they’ve
capitalized on the opportunity to incorporate the tagline “picture-perfect skin” into their ad visuals. [WWD]

More evidence has emerged that chemicals found in common beauty products can have detrimental neurological effects on children exposed to them—in the womb and in the early stages of development. A new study from Mount Sinai’s
Children’s Environmental Health Center found that children aged four to nine who were exposed to phthalates showed an increase in depression, aggression, and conduct disorders. Yikes. [NYDN]

As an in-demand model who’s constantly on the go, Chanel Iman has a few travel essentials that she won’t leave home without, including Smith’s Rosebud Salve, Rodin Olio Lusso, and Diptyque candles. “I like vanilla or lavender. [They] make my hotel room feel homey.” [Allure]

Selena Gomez’s forthcoming fragrance is truly for the people. The teen sensation is asking her fans to sign on to a dedicated Web site to help her pick its top, middle, and base notes, for a chance to win a free sample and maybe even a trip to New York to help compose the final eau. Fingers crossed a freak encounter with Gomez’s beau, Justin Bieber, is also included in that packaged deal. [Just Jared]

Since Thierry Mugler introduced the perfume world to gourmand scents in 1992 with his smash-hit Angel, the business of food-turned-fragrance notes has boomed. So hot right now: scents with a “lickable” quality. [NYT]
