The men's fragrance, Hypnôse Homme
, just came out. I don't often go for his and hers, matchy-matchy fragrances, but this smells amazing on my husband. It's a seductive amber aromatic of spicy black cardamom, a heart of lavender and the warmth of amber and musk. It's fresh and sexy at the same time. Plus, who can resist Clive Owen as a spokesmodel?
So, you may ask, is Hypnôse for Kids next? Well, yes, in a way. The company asked the two of the hottest emerging designers in America, Proenza Schouler, to design a dress that evokes the Hypnôse scent, bottle and woman. The dress, a couture creation valued at $20,000 in the fragrance's signature violet, will be auctioned on eBay beginning April 1st. The proceeds will go to benefit Save the Children
, an organization that helps children in need. The auction listing will be reachable through the Hypnôse Couture
website. Watch a behind-the-scenes video
with Daria Werbowy and Proenza’s Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez that celebrates this project.
This is not the only Proenza Schouler partnership with Lancôme this season. You may have read
some of the buzz about the Le Rouge Absolu lipstick in "Proenza Pink
", a surfer-girl milky pink. Sorry to inform you that it's sold out, but hey - while you're on eBay looking at the Hypnôse dress, you can see if there are any Proenza Pink lipsticks listed!
