And while the new scent (an amber floral) will pay homage to the original, featuring centifolia rose, Italian iris, tonka bean, and vanilla, Initial will get an up-to-date boost with notes of caramel, Calabrian bergamot, and the hedione molecule (which makes the juice smoother). Initial is currently available in Guerlain's Paris boutiques, with a US launch slated for August.
Whenever I need to feel like a luxurious lady, I take a stroll through Neiman Marcus. Joke all you like about the stratospheric prices at "Needless Markup," but you've got to admit, it's a great place to window-shop.

The Dallas-based retailer is celebrating its centennial this year, and it's whipped up plenty of beauty exclusives for the occasion. And guess what, they're all being sold at 1907 prices! Just kidding. The most affordable item is this $36 Nars highlighting duo, which packages Albatross highlighter with Torrid blush.
