Sexy lingerie, glam loungewear, vivid colored flowy ensembles…these are just some of what the House of Natori is best known for. Designer Josie Natori now launched a new fragrance, simply called JOSIE.
Her new multi-floral fragrance embodies the scents of crisp asian pear and bergamot with luscious dewy leaves, amidst a bouquet of the national flower of the Philippines, sampaguita, with Freesia, and wild orchid. Finally, there is a mixture of sandalwood and white musk and patchouli. The packaging is bright and uplifting – red with black and white diagonal stripes – and is both playful and modern with a mix of textures and a pop of color.
Having founded her eponymous brand in 1977, Natori also just opened his first boutique in Nolita in New York City brimming with her signature clothing lines, art work, and an eclectic collection of decorative items.
The House of Natori partnered with prestige beauty company LUXE Brands to develop the JOSIE fragrance. The new fragrance collection contains five coordinating pieces; two sizes of eau de Parfum, an eau de parfum rollerball, a rich body cream, and a body lotion, priced from $22 – 95.
“I wanted to create a fragrance for JOSIE that exudes charisma. I am thrilled with the scent – it truly captures the essence of the brand. Today’s woman knows that there is value in expressing her true self and the JOSIE fragrance, a beautiful sensual scent, gives her one more way to express her irrepressible individual style,” says Natori.
JOSIE can be found at Bloomingdale’s and Dillard’s.
It’s a known fact that women tend to take good care of their face and delicate eye area, but we get lazy when it comes to the skin below our chins. The all important neck and decollete are often neglected—not receiving their fair share of rejuvenating anti-aging creams, serums, and a daily dose of SPF50. The result is not so pretty. Lines, wrinkles, creases between the breasts, and premature skin sagging are the consequences, especially in an area that is so often exposed to the sun’s harmful rays. Just as your hands can give away your age, so too goes your chest.
Ultherapy has made a big splash as the first and only FDA cleared non-invasive treatment for the neck, eyebrow, and under-chin lift. Now Ultherapy is poised to tackle the chest area too. It has recently received an FDA nod to improve lines and wrinkles of the décolleté.
The Ultherapy Décolletage Treatment uses the same signature imaging and focused ultrasound technology that delivers energy deep below the skin. It stimulates the natural formation of collagen and elastin in the skin’s foundation to gradually smooth chest wrinkles to make them less noticeable.
According to New York Plastic Surgeon Bryan G. Forley, “Results from Ultherapy are typically visible after about three months, and in some cases, a second treatment is advisable at that time. The treatment takes less than an hour for the full face and neck, and you can go back to work or resume your normal routine right away. I think it will be a great addition to treat the decolletage as well.”
As with the FDA-cleared Ultherapy procedure for lifting the neck, eyebrow, and under the chin, results for the décolleté can be achieved with a single treatment with no downtime. “There is a high patient demand for a safe and effective solution to treat the chest, but the only options available involved needles, multiple treatments, recovery time, and/or restricted sun exposure,” said principal investigator Sabrina Fabi, MD of Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego. “Now, with the Ultherapy Décolletage Treatment, I can offer women a solution that consistently works and can be done on their lunch hour, at any time of year.”
The Ultherapy Décolletage Treatment will soon be available at more than 1,500 dermatology and plastic surgery practices across the U.S. Find an ultherapist near you at ultherapy.com.
