Written in Saks’s millennial deconstructed-script logo in large strokes of pure black on
milky white Bond No. 9 superstar flacon bottle and topped by rose pink cap, Saks En Rose arrives just in time for Mother's Day.
The top notes of Lantana Leaves, Dry Dates, and Mace tickles the nose then the body of
Orange Rose, Tuberose, and Orris whiffs open, leaving a base of Amber, Musk, and Sandalwood offering the perfume weight.
The trust-worthy apothecary, Caswell-Massey, jumped on the organic bandwagon which ironically reaches back to its 18th-Century roots.
Introducing a new assortment of Natural products to its Luxury collection, the new, Natural Hand Lotions and Hand Wash Gels will be sold at the launch of the Caswell-Massey boutique at Limelight Marketplace, 47 W. 20th Street, on May 7th.
Founded in 1752 in Newport, Rhode Island, Caswell-Massey uses only the finest natural ingredients in their wide selection of soaps, lotions, gels, fragrances and accessories – all made in America. The company’s brands also include Dr. Hunter’s Original Remedies and Lucky Tiger.
Free of parabens, pthalates, lauryl and laureth sulfates, the Luxury collection features Natural Hand Lotions ($35) and Natural Hand Wash Gels ($30) made with shea butter and Vitamin E to gently moisturize skin. The Naturals are also gluten-free and made with recyclable packaging. They are available in 5 scents: Lemon Verbena, Lavender & Violet, Oatmeal, Fresh Cut Flowers and Ocean. Each fragrance has tailored additives to soothe, condition and protect the skin such as green tea, pea protein, lemongrass and sea kelp.
You can find them here at Los Angeles' Studio Beauty Mix or at CaswellMassey.com/luxury.
