Angel and Alien Freshened up
For the spring-summer season, Thierry Mugler has recreated his first two iconic fragrances for women, Angel and Alien, with an original solution treatment offering the Aqua Chic Collection.

The original eau de parfum versions of both fragrances are composed of 15 to 20 percent perfume concentrate. They are then diluted with a blend of distilled water and alcohol to achieve the final solution. To transform Angel and Alien into Aqua Chic, the levels of water and alcohol were replaced by a hydrosol, derived from distilling some of the raw materials—for the first time in perfumery. Also known as floral water or plant water, it still contains parts of essential oil obtained during extraction.

To refresh Angel, the perfumer has chosen delicate and tender cornflower water which blends with pink peppercorn and Calabrian lemon essence to lighten the voluptuous patchouli-vanilla base.

To lend Alien a new spicy radiance, ginger water unfolds at the heart of the fragrance and harmonizes with the tonic verbena and freesia accord to refresh the amber-woody base.


Floating Magic
The Xperia Sola, the latest Android-based smartphone in the Sony Xperia series, introduces new technology invented by the company. Called “floating touch,” the technology enables the user to surf the web with a finger hovering over the panel without touching the screen itself. The user can select a link this way and then launch it by tapping the screen.

The Xperia Sola also comes with SmartTags which use near field communication technology (NFC) to allow users to change their phone settings and open applications with a single tap, so the smartphone can instantaneously adjust to their lifestyle.


Stylish Ladies’ Watch
The Fossil ES3000 watch is designed for sophisticated women who appreciate elegant and subtle accessories. The elegant watch case and bracelet are made of stainless steel and come in pink gold and appetizing chocolate colors. The watch gets an extra feminine touch from tiny crystals which adorn the bezel. The watch has a date indicator and a traditional face with hands covered in fluorescent paint. It is water-resistant to five atmospheres.


Firmness Redefined by Clarins
The Extra-Firming line of Clarins cosmetics for women aged over 40, first produced in 1978, introduces a formula which takes advantage of bonds that hold proteins together. Ignored until recently, the bonds have been shown to help the dermis act something like a stretchy mesh. As long as the bonds are strong, the skin retains its smooth and young look. A Clarins-patented complex of plant extracts from green bananas, lemon thyme and bocoa help these bonds in the structure of the skin to remain intact.

Like the products preceding it, Extra-Firming Day produces an instant face-lift effect when organic sugars from oats smoothen the surface of the skin and stretch it a little. The long-lasting hydration effect is ensured by hyaluronic acid with double molecular weight. The acid moistens the surface of the skin and rebuilds its reserves of water. Clarins has also patented a special anti-pollution complex to protect the skin from the harmful effects of different pollutants.


Hi-Tech Cuts Sweat
The Egizia 2 shoes from the new spring/summer collection by the Geox company combine Italian style with innovation. Owing to technology invented by Mario Moretti Polegatto, shoes from Geox are far more than good-looking footwear. The Geox technology uses a breathable membrane in the sole of the shoe. This feature allows the moisture inside the shoe to evaporate, but prevents water and other substances from getting inside, keeping temperature and moisture levels stable. As a result, Geox shoes are more comfortable and hygienic compared to other products on the market. Geox uses similar technology in clothes, placing the breathable membrane in the shoulder section.
