Nine West is stepping into the fragrance business with its first scent, Love Fury, due out in mid-January. This news is a little dated since they announced it a month ago, but I always seem to be a day late and a dollar short.
I thought the bottle was fairly clever. Nine West will also will include a specially designed Love Fury pump, a pointed-toe platform available in black satin and an array of other colors and fabrications. The scent features top notes of rosebud, mimosa petals, mandarin, and berries, mid-notes of jasmine, and sandalwood, and base notes of orris, musk, wood, and amber. The collection is a 1.7-oz. for $45 price point. The fragrance will be available through Macys, Nine West stores and ninewest.com.
The heel – stopper reminds me of the time I skittered across a wet marble floor years ago. I hit the ground, in cheerleader style, the heel of my pump broke off, then sort of slid into an elevator door. Then the elevator wouldn’t close because that embarrassing heel was blocking something in the mechanism. The heel part of the stopper looks like what was caught in the elevator. Only nicer.
