Last night I was watching the Chelsea, "Bang-Bang" Lately Show. She interviewed Jennifer Aniston about her new flick, Switch, to be released this Friday in theatres everywhere. In addition, Jen, friend of a long-ago friend of mine, actress, Leslie Bibb (really), revealed her new fragrance. Apparently, Jen loves fragrances. Well, over the years, I have invested in fine fragrances. My nose knows and I appreciate now lighter, cleaner smells. Yet some of favorite fragances rose, jasmine and sandlewood.
So Donna Karan’s newest fragrance, pureDKNY blends rose, jasmine, sandalwood with hints of vanilla into one fine bottle. In addition, Donna Karan's pureDKNY fragrance has partnered with CARE, a humanitarian group fighting poverty issues globally. Together, pureDKNY and CARE are helping entreprenurial women in this the Uganda region provide incomes for themselves and their family now and long-term.
The vanilla used in this fragrance is grown sustainably in Uganda. pureDKNY supports CARE, an international development organization, in a specific microfinance project that will reach 900 Ugandan vanilla farmers, many of whom are women.
The bottle, organic in shape and inspired by a drop of water, appears to be formed by nature. The materials include 100% recyclable glass and a cap of high-purity aluminum. Its compostable box is made of sustainably harvested paper manufactured in a mill that uses 100% renewable energy.
