SET SAIL FOR A NEW SCENT The new Nautica Life Energy men’s fragrance ($38 to $62.50) seems almost tailor-made for Southwest Florida. Evoking a crisp ocean breeze and time spent by the sea, it includes notes of sparkling bergamot, grapefruit, fresh sage, lily of the valley and ivy, complemented by touches of cedar wood, musk and vetiver. The clear glass bottle features an orange stripe, white cap and navy accents that bring to mind a sailboat out on the water. Look for the new scent at local department stores like Macy’s at the Edison Mall in Fort Myers (239-477-3300, macys.com).
SOUPED-UP SKIN CARE Even if you do not have an Ivy League pedigree, your skin-care routine can. Caudalie’s new Resveratrol Lift Collection uses technology protected by a patent application filed jointly between Caudalie and Harvard University’s Office of Technology Development. The line’s Firming Serum ($82), Eye Lifting Balm ($62), Face Lifting Moisturizer SPF 20 ($66) and Night Infusion Cream ($76) include a combination of stabilized vine resveratrol and micro-hyaluronic acid that has been shown to result in an overproduction of the skin’s natural hyaluronic acid cells. That increases skin hydration and boosts the activity of genes that produce collagen and elastin, helping reverse the signs of aging. Want to give the high-tech products a try? Head to Sephora at Coconut Point in Estero (239-390-9889, sephora.com) and inside JCPenney at Edison Mall in Fort Myers (239-936-8101).
