BEAUTY’S SUPER BOWL: When the New York Giants head off to Tampa this weekend to prepare for the Super Bowl, they’ll have a little something extra with them: care packages stuffed with goodies from the DKNY Fragrances men’s personal care collection. The kits, which include the soon-to-be released DKNY Men’s Deodorant-Antiperspirant and Energizing Body Wash, will at least insure that the guys smell nice — no matter how they play.
