Coming Soon: Ralph Lauren Notorious

Busy guy, that Ralph Lauren. Next week, he's launching a new fragrance at Bloomingdale's before rolling it out everywhere else in September. Notorious is an eau de parfum created by perfumier Olivier Gillotin that contains notes of sweet vanilla, black currant, bergamot, white peony, carnation, pink peppercorn, aged patchouli, iris, musk, orris and just wait. . . . chocolate cosmos (sadly, this is a burgundy flower, not a drink). Talk about a sweet and savory treat.

The fragrance was inspired by Alfred Hitchcock's classic films, and Laetitia Casta is the face of the ad campaign. Notorious has an overall sparkling, oriental glamorous essence and will be available in two eaux de parfum ($65-85), a body cream ($70), a body lotion ($45), and a shower gel ($40).

There's just something about the ingredients and the elegance of this square bottle that's giving me tummy flutters. And now I have an excuse to make a special trip over to Bloomingdale's — so you won't hear me complaining.

I tried the sample in the Cosmo too, it was so lovely. It instantly reminded me of blackberries and something sparkling and spicy, like champagne. Smells like a very unique and sexy fragrance, not too oriental but not too sweet. I can't wait to try it on my skin. I hope it mixes well with my chemistry, I'd be sad if it doesnt...I'm looking for a signature perfume and it seems to be taking forever to find it. Does anyone have any suggestions on nice floriental perfumes? Something classy but sexy. Just wondering, what do you think it takes to live up to the name "Notorious" ?

caernarvan No,i don't think she wants to be a model anymore i think she only works for some brands(l'Oreal).But it's rare.I don't think she is interested in modeling anymore. She focused on acting,she is an actress now and has 2 young children.

Whatever happened to Laetitia Casta? Did she retire for a while and now she's back?

This one's bound to become a million women's go to fragrance. Red Door was iconic back in the day, maybe Olivier did it again. I definitely need to check this out at Bloomingdale's!

Sounds like it would smell really good but the name is horrible. I can only think of Notorious BIG and I can't say I'd want to smell like him. I imagine he smelled sweaty and faintly like fried chicken lol.
