4 Sea-Inspired Beauty Products

Giorgio Armani mother-of-pearl eye palette

Four new products inspired by the sea.

This Giorgio Armani mother-of-pearl eye palette ($98)—created by the brand’s couture jewelry designers—doubles as an allover illuminator.

An Isla Das Rocas scrub ($36) by Red Flower will soften your skin with botanical oils and sea salts from the islands off Brazil’s southern coast.

La Prairie produces nutrient-rich sea plants for its antiaging Advanced Marine Biology line, including a moisturizer ($135) for the face, eyes, and neck.

Meant to evoke the essence of a Maldivian beach, this Linnea’s Lights soy-wax candle ($30) has hints of cardamom, mandarin, and salty air.

Manolo Blahnik Owners Are Now Selling…Milk?

201109-b-last-lookjpg

To drive past the soaring modern barns and lush pastures of Arethusa Farm Dairy in Litchfield, Connecticut, is to think: lucky cows. Light-years away from the rustic dairy farms that dot the nearby hills, Arethusa is the creation of Manolo Blahnik USA co-owners George Malkemus (president) and Tony Yurgaitis (vice president). These two sophisticated and urbane gentlemen have applied the same creative vision to—well—milk that the brand does to the curve of an insole or the proportion of an ankle strap. With the addition of a pristinely elegant creamery shop (822 Bantam Rd.; 860/361-6600) in nearby Bantam, ice cream, farmer cheese, Camembert, and yogurt are also for sale, providing a gastronomic experience as well as an aesthetic one. It’s all the proof we need that true style can be applied to anything.

Five New Travel-Inspired Fragrances

Patchouli Imperial fragrance

A spicy addition to Dior’s La Collection Privée, Patchouli Imperial (from $150) sources its namesake ingredient in Indonesia. Also in the mix: Sicilian mandarin and Russian coriander.

Lubin Paris—one of the world’s oldest perfumeries—has re-created Marie Antoinette’s personal scent using a formula from the late 1700’s. Black Jade (from $130) captures the essence of her rose gardens at Versailles, with hints of vanilla and sweet-smelling tonka beans from the Caribbean.

For Baiser Volé (from $75), Cartier’s in-house perfumer Mathilde Laurent explored the fleur-de-lis—a symbol of royalty throughout Europe—incorporating extracts from the lily’s pistil, petals, and leaves.

Creed donates up to 5 percent of the proceeds from Royal-Oud ($300)—with an opulent keynote derived from Indian agar wood—to children’s health clinics in the subcontinent.

Lunu (from $120)—part of Molton Brown’s Navigations Through Scent collection, which focuses on a single country in each of its five fragrances—has a heart of white jasmine, handpicked in Egypt.

Editor Find: Loeffler Randall's Rain Booties

201109-b-rain-bootiejpg

Until recently, rainy days on vacations seemed unbearable. Packing rain boots is never easy; not only do they weigh down the suitcase, they take up half of the limited space!

But, Loeffler Randall has brightened my rainy days and made my vacations easier. I don't have to worry about the bulky boots anymore with their sleek designs. These rain booties are so light and comfortable you might even find yourself wearing them on dry days. Jessie Randall, founder and creative director, explains how her designs are so easy to wear: "These boots are great for being out on a rainy day and getting a lot of work done. I can push a stroller, grab groceries, take the dog out for a quick walk in them."

Today Loeffler Randall launches their latest season of rain boots and booties, which will add a new silhouette and colors to their existing line. With prices ranging from $150-$195, the only thing you will have to stress over will be determining which style is most appropriate for your lifestyle. Try on a pair at your local Nordstrom or Saks Fifth Avenue or, if you're confident in your size you can purchase a pair through their website today.

Great Artisanal Ice Cream Parlors

ice cream

Artisanal ice cream parlors across the country are whipping up innovative flavors to satisfy our ever-evolving palates. Here, four sweet spots.

Seattle: Molly Moon’s has gone mobile with a just-launched dessert truck that serves house-made flavors and ice cream sandwiches. Favorite flavor: Hibiscus sorbet. 1622 N. 45th St.; 206/547-5105.

New York City: Manhattanites can’t get enough of Italian import Il Laboratorio del Gelato—its new Lower East Side branch is five times the size of the original location on Orchard Street. Favorite flavor: Tarragon-pink peppercorn.

New Orleans: The cherry- and chocolate-walled La Divina Gelateria is known for its decidedly down-home ingredients. Favorite flavor: Peach Creole cream cheese. 3005 Magazine St.; 504/342-2634.

San Francisco: Owners Jake Godby and Sean Vahey have such a cult following at their retro-mod Humphry Slocombe that they’re currently penning a recipe book about their frozen treats. Favorite flavor: Blue Bottle Vietnamese coffee.

Editor Find: North Fork Fish Market

201107-b-southhold-1jpgThe North Fork of Long Island has been my family’s beach spot for over 30 years. Still, the suddenly chic spit of land 100 miles east of New York City still has a few surprises. The Southold Fish Market is very much a family shop slinging fresh scallops, flounder, and clams. But if you want some really local shellfish, don’t even bother driving home to cook your catch. This seafood shop has a take-out menu (and dockside seating) to die for.
