I just got the chance to try the NEW Jo Malone London Velvet Rose & Oud Cologne Intense perfume and it’s GOOD. I like it because it’s a very unique scent nothing I’ve smelled before, it’s woody, not at all floral or fruity (I don’t like floral fruity perfumes), it’s intense, perfect for night time, I can see you drawing some attention (in a good way).
I’ve first discovered the Jo Malone store in New York City about 10 years ago. I remember buying their (can you believe) Lime Blossom perfume, well I guess our tastes change over time, ha! If you like Tom Ford BLACK ORCHID perfume and the NEW Coco Noir by CHANEL you night also like this.

The long awaited re-launch of the Kohdo Wood Collection is almost here! The limited edition Kohdo Wood collection has been in high demand from the very first launch two years ago and will hit counters once again in April 2010. The two captivating fragrances, Lotus Blossom & Water Lily and Dark Amber & Ginger Lily were created as a modern interpretation of Kohdo, the ancient Japanese art of incense appreciation. Part of the Kohdo Wood Collection, Lotus Blossom & Water Lily can be worn alone or combined with Dark Amber & Ginger Lily to create an intoxicating scent.
The latest Jo Malone launch: the Vanilla & Anise Home Candle, Bath Oil and Body Crème – hitting counters on March 1st, 2010.
Last fall, Jo Malone presented Vanilla & Anise, the fragrance inspired by the floral landscape of Madagascar, capturing the fleeting moment that the rare vanilla orchid blossoms. The fragile cream and white flowers found on the vanilla vine are a precious discovery: only one or two appear in the morning and seemingly vanish by late afternoon. To enhance your fragrance ritual, in addition to Cologne, choose from the new Bath Oil, Body Crème and Home Candle. Your senses and your home will be infused with this comforting scent.

Bree was a background dancer in such hit films as The Big Lebowski (1998), She’s All That (1999) and Mike Myers’ Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me (1999). Bree’s love for performing and being on stage makes acting a natural transition. Most recently, Bree Turner can be seen opposite Katherine Heigl and Gerard Butler in The Ugly Truth.
I caught up with Bree Turner via telephone from Los Angeles early in the morning few months ago, to talk about her beginnings in Hollywood, her role film The Ugly Truth opposite Katherine Heigl, future career plans and even some beauty secrets!
Actress Bree Turner
Marta Walsh: How did you decide on a career in acting, and what were some of your first breaks as an actress?
Bree Turner: I started out as a dancer which got me on stage. I was pretty shy as a kid so my mom decided to enroll me in a dance class, and I fell in love with being on stage and performing. I danced all through my teens and early 20’s. Dancing brought me down to Los Angeles with a dance scholarship in UCLA. I heard that you can actually make money as dancer, so I got a dance agent and began working in commercials, music videos, and the Grammys. I did that for about 6 years. I then decided to pursue acting. I was so in love with being on set and movie making. I loved movies since I was a baby. It was the only thing that would calm me down. I was very colicky as a child so my mom would take me to watch movies. Grease was the movie that would stop me from crying. Dancing, performing, and being on stage is all I’ve done forever, it’s all I really know.
