City Pulse

I once worked with a beauty editor who was obsessed with what celebrities smelled like up close. No joke. She would always search for the inside scoop on their signature fragrances and even found a website in which you could locate a celebrity and it would tell you their favorite scents. Crazy? Yes, but highly entertaining.

On that note, I bring you the scent of actress Anne Hathaway. Up close she smells…drum roll please…quite rosy with notes of spicy saffron and exotic wood, also known as Lancome’s Magnifique Eau de Toilette. As brand ambassador, Hathaway filmed the fragrance’s latest commercial at famed NYC night club, The Box. In the commercial she’s sexy yet elegant and uses her flowing black dress to seduce the clubs patrons.

In celebration of the new commercial, we’ve teamed up with Lancome to offer one lucky reader the chance to smell like the movie star. Just send an email to with “Scent of the Stars” in the subject like and be sure to include your name, telephone number and email address. All entries must be received by Thursday June, 11th.

I currently wear Talisman, but it has been discontinued for several years now. It’s getting harder to find it online. I get so many compliments on it, and no one else I know wears it.
I’m looking for a new perfume with the a similar scent, but not something everyone wears.
