    Loooooooove that ad!

    • Robin says:

      You know, I thought it was striking too. But the proportions of her upper torso look really weird to me. Wondering if it got a bit too much attention in the post processing.

      • JolieFleurs says:

        Was just going to say that her bosom area looks incredibly long and bizarre and her upper torso over all is practically at a 45 degree angle to the rest of her.

  2. DiamondsAreForever says:

    I love that ad! That dress she’s wearing is GORG!

    The notes sound promising. Red velvet cupcake? Hmm. Sounds delicious!

    • Robin says:

      It does not sound like my sort of thing, but the red velvet cupcake part might be fun.

  3. jonr951 says:

    Red velvet cupcake?! One of my favorite things in the world! Yum! : )

    • Robin says:

      If only they’d left out the peony & pear, I’d be more interested :-)

      • jonr951 says:

        Looks like their always going to have pear in the Pulse line. Sorry Robin! And you’re not a fan of peony?! Who knew! Haha! : )

        • Robin says:

          I don’t mind peony so much, but peony + pear = shampoo to me.

          Hope you will love it though!

          • jonr951 says:

            I guess I love me some shampoo. Haha!

            And thanks, I hope I do too. Haha! : )

    I see Beyonce’ is gonna pump out the fragrances every year…who know’s she might catch up with JLO who has made millions off of her 18 or so perfumes.

  5. thomkallor says:

    She’s as distorted as a comic book superheroine! And as a Native NYer, let me tell you – nothing about those notes suggest an olfactory journey through NY! lol

    So, a fragrance named after a US city won’t be released in the US.
    Here’s what Coty emailed me:
    “We’re sorry to disappoint you, but this product is not available for sale in the United States. Unfortunately there are no current plans to launch this product and there are no retailers that will deliver product into the U.S. Our decision to not carry a product is based on market trends.”
    What a bummer! Here’s hoping I find it online sooner or later. : )

    • Robin says:

      Funny! But betcha the discounters will get it.

      • Robin says:

        And Sears in Canada has it already.

        • jonr951 says:

          Yeah, I’m sure it will show up somewhere in the US or online sooner or later. : )
