Vamping Up with HBO True Blood Forsaken Perfume & Beauty Collection (2012) {New Fragrance} {Beauty Notes}


The HBO hit show True Blood has inspired a collection of beauty and perfume products which will launch from August 9, 2012 on HSN. Leading fragrance company Givaudan crafted the signature perfume of the TV series called Forsaken eau de parfum. But that's not all. Deborah Lippmann was tapped to create one iconic nail polish, Let it Bleed, which is - surprise! - scented with Forsaken perfume, as well as two additional libraries of nail lacquers to add more variation (more details after the jump). And even more exciting news for beauty fans is the fact that Lippmann has taken this opportunity to design her first lipstick ever dubbed what else but Bite Me...

true-blood-perfume.jpgForsaken edp is described as "an addictive blend of light and dark notes. Pulpy fruits paired with crisp pear notes are followed by mid notes of night blooming jasmine, also fittingly known as Queen of the Night. The scent closes with the dark muskiness of amber and patchouli. Ultra feminine, yet sultry, the fragrance will cast a spell on everyone."

The bottle presents two drops of blood as charms.

The scent will be incorporated besides the nail polish, in home fragrance products developed by D. L. & Co.

Lippmann said that a lippie being a first for her, she really wanted to bring something new to the table,

"We worked hard to create an innovative lipstick formula that provides a nail lacquer-inspired fashion-forward intensity, shine, and color."

If you are not following the series, here is a summary of it,

"Mixing romance, suspense, mystery and humor, True Blood takes place in the not-too-distant future, when vampires have come out of the coffin, thanks to the invention of mass-produced synthetic blood that means they no longer need humans as a nutritional source. The show follows the romance between waitress Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), who can hear people's thoughts, and her soul mate, 173-year-old vampire Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer). Alan Ball (creator of the Emmy®-winning HBO series "Six Feet Under") created and executive produces the show, which is based on the best-selling Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris."

You know where this is all leading, right? Prepare early for a Halloween True Blood party!
