Estee Lauder Emerald Dream, Teo Cabanel Alahine, Serge Lutens Rousse ~ new fragrances

Estee Lauder Emerald Dream perfumeEstee Lauder is introducing a new travel retail-exclusive fragrance in 2007, Emerald Dream:

Close your eyes and you’re there – your own private oasis. Enter a sun-drenched garden hidden away from it all. An exclusive and luxurious retreat filled with intriguing scents and brilliant color. Wander down sun-dappled paths to a refreshing pool of blue-green water. Float away and feel the warmth of the sun caress your skin. This is your dream, this is your moment all to yourself. Discover Estee Lauder Emerald Dream, a captivating new fragrance which will exhilarate your senses, gently beckoning with an invigorating blend of sparkling freshness, alluring warmth and smooth sensuality.

The notes will feature tangerine, apricot, honeysuckle, blue basil, mimosa, violet, blue iris, emerald orchid, plum, marigold, cyclamen, beach skin accord, blue cypress, sandalwood and Hawaiian kamani wood. (via press release from Estee Lauder)

Teo Cabanel Alahine perfumeFrench niche perfumery Teo Cabanel has launched their third fragrance, Alahine:

Created by in-house perfumer Jean-François Latty, Alahine opens with notes of bergamot, lavender and ylang ylang then moves into a heart of Bulgarian and Moroccan rose, orange flower, jasmine and pepper plant and then dries down with iris concentrate...patchouli, benzoin, vanilla, sandalwood and musk.

Next year, Teo Cabanel plans to introduce a fragrance for men with notes of vetiver and lavender. Update: Teo Cabanel Alahine is available in 15 ml Parfum, or 50 or 100 ml Eau de Parfum.

And as hardcore Serge Lutens fans are already aware, a new fragrance will join the export range in March. Rousse is described as a "spicy wooden concoction formulated around the cinnamon wood note." (both above via cosmeticnews) Update: the notes for Rousse, according to Osmoz, are floral notes, aromatic notes, fruit, cinnamon-wood note, spices, amber, musk and vanilla. Not very illuminating, is it? See a review of Serge Lutens Rousse here.

    Oh, look Estee Lauder has launched a fruity floral. But what in heaven's name is “beach skin accord”? People on the beach sweat. On second thought, don't tell me.

    What's a 'travel retail-exclusive fragrance'? One that's only available to poor, unfortunate people who are forced to wait at airports for delayed flights?

    Another fruit salad on the market. Great, not.

    Exactly! Also known as duty-free-only.

    I don't care what anybody is writing about the new trends — fruity florals are NOT over.

    Has anyone tried the new SL Rousse yet? Any thoughts on it? Thanks :).

    I have given it only a very quick try so far — hope to try it again over the weekend, and perhaps will review it next week. It is dry and quiet, not so embellished as some of his other spicy woods scents — therefore, possibly more wearable.

    Bois de Jasmin reviewed it some weeks back I think, you might want to look over there :-)

    Does anyone know the U.S. Retail price?

    The only places on the web i could find Emerald Dream were Amazon.com and another site called fragrancestop.com, but they don't list the retail and I don't want to get ripped off b/c there is no competition yet.

    Thanks
