Fragrances are not expensive at all, according to Sisi, a student. "I don't care how much a scent costs me, as long as it smells great." As for cheaper scents, she tends to stay away from "all that junk. I only use soap and water and a dab of Antonia's Flowers behind the ears." Meghan Cartlin, a student, said, "I refuse to spend more than $50 for a bottle of perfume. I think the prices for cosmetics are getting higher each year." She said she prefers to drown herself in The Limited's Bath & Bodyworks products. "My all-time favorite is Sun Ripen Raspberry -- I can't leave home without it."
Vanessa, a fine arts student, claimed that the company's Sunburst Melon beats Sun Ripen, and added, "As far as I'm concerned, you don't have to spend a lot of money to smell good." Vanessa really doesn't believe in overindulging oneself in obnoxious perfumes. Brooke Elkin, when asked about her favorite scent, replied, "Dove soap and water is all I need. None of that fancy-schmancy stuff. Who needs it?"
Deneen, a model, said she wears Jil Sander No. 4, "but only when I'm feeling sexy." She doesn't care how much her favorite fragrance costs, noting, "I will pay anything."
Claudia, a student, had similar tastes. "I have been wearing Jil Sander for quite some time and I just love the way the fragrance makes me feel -- womanly and sexy."
And only on special occasions, she added, "will I pamper myself with body treatments by Sander."
"I really don't wear perfumes, but lately I've been into the fruit-scented soaps from the Body Shop," says Monica Kasbir, a retailer. "Maybe it has something to do with the weather. But what I do know is that I certainly would never spend more than $15 for a bottle of anything."
"I really enjoy pampering myself with beauty products. I'm constantly hunting for something that will make me feel great," said Elaine Singer, a photographer. "So, for me, it doesn't matter how much a fragrance costs."

@imanshumpert is diving deeper into his creative endeavors and relaunching his clothing line, Post 90s, and is helping to raise money for the hurricane victims in St. Maarten with a jersey he’s designed with his brother.

Not only does #TheProfit return to CNBC tonight, but @marcuslemonis has launched @shopmarcus, a new shopping and lifestyle retail experience in Aspen and Chicago, with more locations to come. The retail stores offer in-store stylists and a variety of contemporary womenswear selections.
“It’s life, I’m going to face it,” @mingxi11 sighed. “I fell, but you know, I think the most important thing is that I get back up. I had the love, the help from my sister — the girl next to me Gizele [Oliveira] — she’s so nice. When I went backstage everybody was trying to comfort me like ‘Oh Ming, it’s OK.’ I’m really, really touched. I think it’s them who gave me the courage to go back on stage for the finale,” Xi told WWD of her fall at the @victoriassecret fashion show.

@louisvuitton tapped @therealpeterlindbergh for its latest city-centric photo book, which is part of a series called Fashion Eye. The primarily black and white book captures the spirit of Berlin in 57 images shot between 1989 and 2019. “Berlin is an inspiration for me, more than a city. I mean @millajovovich is simply Berlin!” said Lindbergh. #wwdfashion
“You know, I think audiences expect a certain performance so I have to deliver to them what they’re expecting to a certain degree. But I’m also a different actor and a different person, I have my own spin on the character,” says @noahegalvin of his takeover of the leading role in “Dear Evan Hansen” following the departure of @bensplatt, who originated the role.

“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.
