Body Creme for the Cashmere Mafia

Donna Karan Cashmere Mist is one of those instantly recognizable fragrances, and over the years it's developed an incredibly loyal following that rivals that of Thierry Mugler's Angel. I had a friend in college who ONLY wore Cashmere Mist and actually kept backup bottles ofit hidden in her dorm, in case the current one ran out/broke/was stolen by a jealous roommate.

Over the years various ancillary products were launched, from the usual shower gels to more interesting items like shampoo, conditioner and serum fragrance.

And now there's a new wayfor you Cashmere Mist fiends to get your fix. Cashmere Mist Silky Body Creme has a "solid mousse" texture, almost like a solid perfume when you first touch it. It feels super-thick in the jar, but goes on smooth and mousse-like, leaving a powdery, incredibly soft finish (which leads me to believe that there's some silicone in the formula). It's slightly shimmery, leaving just a bit of gold sparkle on the skin.

It's also very generously fragranced. Diehard Cashmere Mist fans will enjoy layering it with other products from the line, but you could probably get away with wearing it alone. It's been on my arm for a few hours and I can still smell it when I move around - the same can't be said for many scented creams.

Cashmere Mist Silky Body Creme is a new release and is available for $55 at Nordstrom.
