Makeup artist Sue Devitt, who hails from Australia, will launch a new, limited-edition fragrance entitled Golden Temple Effusion inspired by her love of travel and encounter with the religious temple architecture of Thailand.
The scent, which was developed by IFF, is the olfactory interpretation of an "...early-morning mist rising from Thailand's bamboo forests,"...
The composition includes notes of rainforest woods, wild lily and red berries, which makes it another perfume yet to add to the Lily Trend this fall together with YSL Belle d'Opium, Calvin Klein Beauty, Mary J. Blige My Life.
The Golden Temple Effusion Eau de Toilette is the debut effort by Sue Devitt to associate a perfume to the launch of one of her makeup collections. This fall, it is a companion to The Golden Triangle Collection. Devitt said that she plans to go on with this approach,
"I'd like to continue to develop fragrance for each collection because it is part of the beauty process,"
The Golden Triangle Collection features "a lash-enhancing mascara ($49) available in black, dark brown and green black; an Eye Intensifier Pencil ($22) in green black, and a Silky Eye Shadow ($18) in rainforest green, deep charcoal and golden olive. There are also limited edition offerings such as eye, lip and cheek highlighter ($22) in golden neutral and Lip Enhancing Gloss ($22) in golden."
Price: $65 for 1.7 fl. oz.
