Smell This: Degree Launches New Collection

Women everywhere may be cutting back on the indulgences but a recent study by Degree shows that it’s the small indulgences that are non-negotiable. 40% of women refuse to give up chocolate, while 35% say 'no' to nixing their morning coffee or latte. And although women have trouble forgoing chocolate cravings, it’s beauty that trumps all. Nearly six in ten women (56%) would give up their sweet treats to be able to afford their favorite beauty products and nearly seven in ten (66%) would rather give up their favorite heels before giving up their favorite fragrance.

Armed with this knowledge, Degree is launching the new Fine Fragrance Collection, which features a line of body mists and matching anti-perspirants created by one of the most prestigious fragrance “noses” in the industry – Ann Gottlieb. They kicked off the launch with a stylish blogger event last week at Dylan's Candy Bar.  Actress Lindsay Price was on hand for the festivities too, so be sure to click through the gallery for a few pics from the party.

Three scents are included in the Degree Fine Fragrance Collection: Delicious Bliss (a blend of apple, peach and raspberries with hyacinth and magnolia), Sexy Intrigue (a blend of jasmine, rose and vanilla) and my personal favorite, Classic Romance (a soft rose and peony fragrance with bottom notes of citrus and bergamot.)

The three anti-perspirants and matching body mists are available now for $3.99 each. Or visit the site to print a $1.00 coupon!
