Why a Meryl Streep x Frédéric Malle Fragrance Will Never Be; Special K: The Nail Polish; And More…

-------

Frédéric Malle isn’t much for celebrity fragrance. The perfume purveyor is much more interested in characters with “strong aesthetics,” like Dries Van Noten, with whom he has created a new signature scent that will be the first offering from his forthcoming collection range. Meryl Streep, he contends, does have a “Hermès quality about her. She’s a beautiful woman and a solid actress,” but the frequent Oscar winner isn’t fragrance material. “She doesn’t smell,” says Malle. “She’s Mrs. Thatcher one day and Julia Child the next. Meryl Streep can be anything. But basically we don’t know anything about her as a person.” [NYT]

Avon, it appears, is also looking for characters with strong aesthetics—or make that athletics. The brand has tapped L.A. Clippers guard, Chris Paul, to be the new face of its Untouchable men’s scent. [ESPN]

Nicole by OPI’s latest collaborative collection has nothing to do with movies or celebrities and everything to do with cereal. Yes, cereal. The lacquer line is creating three custom colors for Special K, which will debut next month. [OPI]

The latest trend in nails—other than breakfast-food-inspired varieties? Feather-finish polishes, according to London’s Nails Inc, which has tapped Brit It girl Poppy Delevingne to be the face of its newest adventure in texture. [Daily Mail]
