U.S. Raises Air Security Alert To Red

Daisy Marc Jacobs is now available in the convenience of an eau de toilette rollerball, available exclusively at Sephora for $20. The hit 2007 perfume by Marc Jacobs has seen many stages as a result of its success. Last spring I posted about Daisy eau de parfum Silver Edition, which is now available. Now Daisy can travel with you in this compact roll-on, like many new fragrances at Sephora. The last two celebrity fragrances I’ve posted about, Kat Von D and Kim Kardashian (due in 2010), are both being sold in rollerballs at Sephora.

Is it really worth paying a lot more for the convenience of a rollerball though? At Sephora, the Daisy 1.7 oz Eau de Toilette Spray is $57. That’s $33.53 per ounce. The Daisy 0.24 oz Eau de Toilette Rollerball is $20. That’s $83.33 per ounce! Don’t get me wrong, I think the rollerball is a great idea, and very convenient. You have to admit though that it’s a little shocking when you put the cost into perspective.

Tell me what you think:

  • Is the rollerball is a new trend in perfume that will take off?
  • Are you willing to pay more per ounce for the convenience of a rollerball?

Kat Von D, of L.A. Ink on TLC, has her own brand of cosmetics and perfume at Sephora now. The line includes two perfumes, named in true bad-girl spirit, Sinner and Saint. The most interesting thing about them is the perfume format. They are sold not only as an eau de parfum spray, but also as a EDP roll-on ball pen, and as a solid in a black flower ring.

Sephora describes Sinner as:

“Light, delicate top notes of orange blossom, refreshing mandarin, and fleshy plum create a provocative, sultry heart. Rich jasmine blends seamlessly with a white-flower bouquet, beautifully tainted by the spicy warmth of cinnamon, an herb associated with ancient rituals of pleasure. A dark, mysterious back of earthy vetiver, patchouli, and woods enveloped in creamy vanilla and sensual musk lingers on the skin.”

And Saint is described as:

“The sweet nectar of Mirabelle Plum and sparkling juicy mandarin create an addictive, mouth-watering top. At the heart, exotic, heady Tiare flower and sweet, tempting caramel are adorned with the velvety floralcy of jasmine, the queen of the night, as she emits her spellbinding fragrance into the sky. Sensual vanilla and creamy musk combine with the warmth of sandalwood for a comforting dry down.”

The reception from customers seems to be well, with a 4 out of 5 star rating. Check them out at Sephora.com.
