Allen (Charlotte). However, now the show, which will premiere its third season in the fall, is debuting its own beauty line, including a fragrance called Double Infinity, paying homage to Emily’s infinity tattoo, which drives her throughout the story. InStyleshares that “The red bottle boasts a dramatic combination of jasmine, peony, & pink pepper, with citrus notes like grapefruit & orange blended into the mix,” which sounds delightful enough to try. It’s sold @Kohl’s, ranging in price from $39-$49, a perfect pre-stocking stuffer gift for the Revenge fan in your life.

Rooney Marahas certainly cemented her status in fashion, especially after co-chairing this year’s Met Costume Institute Gala with Givenchy‘s Riccardo Tisci. Now the Oscar-nominated actress is the latest face for Calvin Klein‘s new fragrance, Downtown.

In a recent article on FashionEtc, the scent is described as “With top notes of raspberry nectar, melon and bergamot mist, and a drydown of Australian sandalwood and Madagascar vanilla, the fruity floral scent is a distinct departure from the brand’s most recent perfume, Seductive, aimed toward women in their later 20′s.“
