CREED Acqua Fiorentina
Master perfumer Oliver Creed with his son, Erwin, offers a fragrance of lasting
artistry and permanent value. The inspiration is 15th century Florence in
Italy, where artists and innovators such as da Vinci and Michelangelo lit a new
flame of beauty and culture, sparking a Renaissance of art always growing in
worth, even today.
Creed Acqua Fiorentina is hand made with flowers and fruits from the orchards
and gardens around Florence. Greengage plum is the masterpiece top note. Warm
base notes of Virginia cedar and Indian sandalwood are the sculpted wood frame
for this work of art. Available exclusively at Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf
Goodman. One ounce, $130.

A Graceful Presence
Prada introduces L’eau Ambrée
A refined and carefully balanced meditation on beauty and desire, L’Eau Ambrée is a fragrance that has a graceful presence, empowering but never demanding.
It is a discreetly impressive scent that balances its classic influences within
the modern tone of the Prada Parfums vernacular. L
’Eau Ambrée is a new addition to the Prada Classic range, which combines an intricate and
fresh approach to the balancing of the notes of citron, may rose and amber.
Feel Good Hosiery
FUTURO BY 3M
You probably know that hosiery can make you look good, but what if it could make
you feel good and even help you live healthier?
FUTURO hosiery applies controlled, graduated pressure, that is strongest at the
ankles and decreases as it moves up to help maintain blood flow up the legs.
Perfect for work or travel, FUTURO can help prevent the development of blood
clots as well as swelling and that tired, achy leg feeling.
Available in four graduated levels of support—Energizing, Restoring, Therapeutic and Anti-Embolism—FUTURO improves circulation, relieves symptoms of tired and achy legs and
varicose veins, massages legs as you move and helps chronic symptoms such as
ankle swelling and fatigue.
The FUTURO Energizing product provides an invigorating feeling for high-energy women who are
frequently on their feet, travel, wear high heels and maintain stationary
positions for prolonged periods of time.
FUTURO helps you stay in stride with its Restoring solutions for men and women.
Ideal for active workers, pregnant women and post surgery patients, the
Restoring line helps relieve symptoms of moderate varicose veins, ankle
swelling and edema.
For more acute cases of varicose veins, ankle swelling and chronic leg fatigue
or heaviness, FUTURO Therapeutic open toe and open toe/heel stockings can help
relieve these severe conditions.
FUTURO also offers an Anti-Embolism stocking that helps reduce the danger of
thromboebolic disorder, which is linked to 100,000 deaths each year. Available
in assorted sizes for both men and women including trouser socks, stockings and
pantyhose, FUTURO products are designed to promote a better quality of life and
look good, too!
