Marilyn Monroe on a Scent That Never Loses Its Sex Appeal; When It Comes to Miley, We Called It; Double Your Fragrance Fun With the Olsen’s Latest Launch; and More


Chanel released its new ad for No. 5 (dropping November 11) and the recording the house dug up in Marilyn Monroe’s archives. Makes us want to swap out our oversize sleep shirts for the far sexier fragrance.

Not to brag or anything, but we figured out Miley Cyrus’ Lil’ Kim Halloween costume long before she debuted it on Instagram. Perhaps we should have gone as Long Island medium Theresa Caputo last night…

Two is often better than one—especially when an Olsen is involved. Mary-Kate and Ashley’s latest endeavor: two Elizabeth and James fragrances dubbed Nirvana Black and White launching in January at Sephora.

Those monthly beauty-box subscriptions filled with sample-size products often leave much to be desired, but the latest Glossybox by Net-a-Porter (available November 4) is seriously impressive. A full-size, bullet-shaped Ellis Faas Mascara, RGB Cuticle Oil, and Kevyn Aucoin eye shadow duo are included, along with trial tubes and cans from luxe brands like Natura Bissé, Klorane, and Philip B.

Makeup artist extraordinaire François Nars is releasing a book published by Rizzoli—Faery Lands: Tahiti—filled with sepia-toned imagery from his island (yes, all his), Motu Tané, off the coast of Bora Bora. It hits the shelves of NARS boutiques and bookstores mid-November.

When they talk about the Axe effect, we don’t think the brand had asphyxiation by body spray in mind. After being spritzed in a sixth-grade Brooklyn classroom, eight children were sent to the hospital. Unlike the commercials, no bodacious models in bikinis appeared. We can only imagine the disappointment of those 12-year-old boys. [Time]

Eau De Elizabeth And James


Fresh on the heels on another set of successful Spring presentations for their lines The Row and its more contemporary counterpart Elizabeth and James, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have officially announced what they alluded to at the latter show just yesterday: Starting next year, the sister duo will be back in the fragrance game, creating a signature Elizabeth and James scent with Sephora. Back in 2006, before the fashion fame, the Olsens dabbled in fragrance with a series of body sprays that were evocative of travel destinations (Malibu Style, London Beat, and South Beach Chic were the toast of the tween beauty game). Their newest perfume project will prove a much more sophisticated offering, and if Sephora’s recent partnership with Marchesa is any example, it should be pretty luxe, too. Stay tuned. [WWD]

The Olsens Mouth Off On Canadian TV


Fresh off the launch of their much discussed Elizabeth and James line at Holt Renfrew stores, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen visited the Toronto set of MuchOnDemand, the Canuck version of Total Request Live. Both girls sported heavy black liner, but MK favored a matte red lip while Ashley went with a creamy nude pout. A small difference, yes, but one that definitely made it easier to tell them apart now that they’ve both gone back to blonde. Which look do you prefer?
