WOONSOCKET, R.I., Sept. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CVS/pharmacy, the nation's leading retail pharmacy, today announced new introductions to their number one best-selling fragrance and body care line, Essence of Beauty. The expanded and refreshed bath and body collection, available exclusively at CVS/pharmacy, delivers four new evocative fragrances created by renowned perfumers and features luxurious formulations with premium ingredients in beautifully-designed packaging. With the addition of the new scent collections expertly crafted by master perfumers, as well as the launch of a new shea treatment line and the enhanced Signature Collection, the Essence of Beauty Fine Fragrance Collection brings a touch of indulgence into the everyday.
The newest introductions to the comprehensive collection of pampering bath and body products allows women to choose among a variety of indulgent fragrance options crafted by expert international perfumers. Bringing their diverse experience and passion for innovation to the Essence of Beauty brand, the master perfumers drew inspiration from a variety of sources, including the duality of natural wilderness and chemistry, famed cities and exotic locations, and the imagined scents of a special photograph, childhood story, or time period in life.
Essence of Beauty's advanced formulas contain fine ingredients, including nourishing and calming passion flower seed oil, high in anti-inflammatory essential fatty acids and Vitamin C, as well as antioxidant-rich rice bran oil, which contains Vitamin E to help protect and hydrate skin while fighting free radicals. Products in the Essence of Beauty line are now free of parabens, phthalates, petrolatum, gluten, and artificial dye, responding to customer desires for more natural formulas. Additionally, Essence of Beauty is not tested on animals.

"By partnering with some of the best master perfumers in the industry to create new fragrances and enhanced formulas exclusively for our customers, we've developed an extensive line of high-quality products that offer at-home indulgence while maintaining the accessibility and affordability that shoppers have come to expect from CVS/pharmacy."
The Essence of Beauty Fine Fragrance Collection now consists of fourteen distinct scent offerings, including four new master-crafted scents and the Shea Indulgence treatment line.
- Secret Woods: Evoking the alluring mystery of a hidden forest, mesmerizing pomegranate, soft jasmine petals, and warm vanilla musk entice and intrigue you.
- Forever Paris: Like a new romance blossoming in the world's most famous city of love, decadent Parisian roses, just-blushing tulips and notes of strawberry sweep you off your feet.
- Wind Kissed: Spring flowers dance delicately in the breeze as cotton flower, mimosa and white amber combine in calming harmony.
