I have good news for fans of Valentina Pink! the sparkling floral fragrance debuted in 2015 in a select few countries where it sold out in a matter of weeks. The cheerful scent for her boasted notes of strawberries, blackberry, musk, peony, May Rose, Centifolia rose, cashmere amber and pralines. It was a lovely scent. But I honestly think most people bought it for the bold pink sculptural bottle. It is stunning. Valentino has just reintroduced this scent along with Poudre and Blush making them regular items in the lineup. So you should see it on counter very soon.

Perfume enthusiasts may want to book a summer vacation to Venice this year and visit one of the world's few fragrance museums. Museo di Palazzo Mocenigo offers an extensive history on perfume creation in Venice throughout the ages complete with the materials and machines they used to create luxe scents. It is a fascinating exhibit. Even better, there is an added exhibit on very rare perfume bottles. I was so excited to see a genuine Schiaparell! It's located at Santa Croce 1992 in Venice. It's about a 20 minute walk from the city centre.

NARS has just introduced a new generation of bronzer with is Sun Wash Diffusing Bronzers. This matte finish powder captures the natural light and diffuses imperfections for a soft-focus effect. The texture is smooth, silky and weightless. Francois Nars describes it as a soft, second-skin warmth.

Looking for a really great summer eye palette? Clarins limited edition summer look palette is one of the best I've seen. Not only do you get warm sandy tones that will play up any tan, you get a pop of warm orange. This shade has brown undertones so it is so much easier to wear. It's in stores now but I expect it will sell out fairly quickly. It's beautiful.

So honoured to have the opportunity to spend time with beauty icon Bobbi Brown this week. She was in town to launch her ninth book entitled Beauty: From the Inside Out. It's a wellness book that covers nutrition, exercise, skincare and confidence.

Dior is launching some seriously exciting skincare this month. The collection is called HydraLIFE and the brand has taken the excitement and innovation from its catwalk beauty collections and translated it into skincare for makeup lovers. Choose from Time To Glow: Ultra Fine Exfoliating Powder, Lotion-to-Foam Cleanser, Fresh Jelly Mask, and Fresh Hydration Sorbet Creme. These are lightweight formulas that deliver deep hydration and cleansing action. Really fun collection!

Guerlain Master Perfumer Thierry Wasser has just unveiled his latest masterpiece: Mon Guerlain. It's a Fresh Oriental for her with notes of Carla Lavender, sambac jasmine, Tahitensis vanilla and Australian sandalwood. What makes this scent stand out is the quality of the ingredients. Thierry travels the world looking for the very best raw materials for his creations. You'll soon see the ads for the fragrance. Angelina Jolie is the face.

I just spotted something really fun for Valentine's Day. At select Burberry fragrance counters (including Hudson's Bay flagships in Canada) you'll notice valentine's stickers to dress your Brit fragrance bottle. I hear that they were originally intended for display purposes but have been so popular that fragrance associates are handing out sheets of the stickers with a Brit purchase while supplies last. So fun!
