Red Dress: Heart disease is the number one killer of women in the U.S. Did you read that? Heart disease is the NUMBER ONE killer of women in the U.S.

So the master perfumers at the world-renown fragrance house Givaudan, decided to lend support to the “Go Red For Women” program developed by the American Heart Association, by creating Red Dress, a strong yet feminine bodied scent. Red Dress, a floral musk which features top notes of mandarin, freesia, and bergamot, has a heart of rose petals, jasmine and linden blossom, with a smoky base of musk, iris, and sandalwood. 100% of the net proceeds from sales of Red Dress will be donated to the American Heart Association, who are dedicated to helping all women fight against cardiovascular disease.

Shania by Stetson: October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, Shania by Stetson has introduced a limited edition pink bottle of the fragrance. The soft pink glass bottle will come wrapped in a hot pink and gold box, bearing the signature pink ribbon of hope. The robust floral scent boasts a virtual olfactory smorgasbord blending top notes of grapefruit, mandarin, berries and pomegranate, with honeysuckle, wild prairie rose, jasmine, osmanthus, and magnolia, while drying down with musk, patchouli, and white amber.

To support the cause, Shania by Stetson will be making a donation to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, an organization that is committed to increasing awareness of breast cancer through education and offering mammograms to those in need.

Shania by Stetson is available at drugstores nationwide. For more information on breast cancer awareness and research, visit

LuckyScent’s Geisha Pink (by CS): This roll-on scent with flirty, girly notes of sugared plum, orange and vanilla comes in a slender tube and smells of tart orange, sugared plum and soft vanilla. This sweet, sexy and playful scent is a perfect size to put in your purse. Strong enough after just one application, the smell is long-lasting. Plus 15% of the proceeds go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation during the month of October (you get a thank you card with every purchase in a cute pink envelope).
