Kiehl’s x Kenny Scharf Holiday Collaboration


By now I’m sure you’ve noticed the change that has occurred at retail. It went from summer to Christmas and every year it seems like it’s happening earlier. Well, no matter how you feel about that, your favorite apothecary Kiehl’s has a holiday promotion you should pay attention too.

Kiehl’s has tapped New York Pop artist, Kenny Scharf to redesign the packaging on its popular Crème de Corps collection. This promotion is part of their annual holiday tradition with philanthropic ties. 100% of the worldwide net profits or up to $200,000 will be donated to children’s charities. According to a press release in support of this promotion, “In the U.S., proceeds will support RXart a non-profit national organization, committed to fostering artistic expression and awareness through the challenging, yet rewarding task of engaging young patients through contemporary art in pediatric hospitals. RxArt is dedicated to placing original fine art in patient, procedure and examination rooms of healthcare facilities, for the engagement and comfort of patients.”

The Creme de Corps collection with Kenny Scharf’s designs are available now on Kiehls.com.

Amouage Miniature Men’s Collection

Amouage was founded 25 years ago, in accordance with the wishes of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said, ruler of the Sultanate of Oman. It was his desire to create a global luxury brand with roots in Oman under which the traditional Arabian love of perfume making and gift giving could be preserved and celebrated.

It was also his intention to tell the world about the ingredients particularly found in Oman, the rarest frankincense from Dhofar in the south of the country and the rarest rose of all, the rock rose harvested high up in the mountains of the Jebel Akhdar range towering over the Sultante’s beautiful capital, Muscat.

The Amouage miniature men’s collection contains six .25 oz bottles. Included in the set I have are Lyric, Jubilation, Reflection, Gold, Dia, and Silver. Each has very distinct characteristics but all are rich with great lasting power. The packing and presentation is simply beautiful. Right now, my standout favorites include Dia and Silver…but I’ve only just begun.

Amouage Miniatures set for men – $260 (and worth every penny)
