Heads Up Part II

What's Hot

Multifloral Scents

Now that vanilla has lost some of its cachet in the olfactory world, multifloral scents are being hailed as the dominant aroma for the coming year. "We're moving back toward more feminine and romantic scents," says Annette Green, president of The Fragrance Foundation and Olfactory Research Fund in New York City. "People don't want to smell like a rose or gardenia--they want to have the smell [of many types of flowers combined]." Isn't it romantic?

Bright Colors

Subtlety is fading--but not to black. Instead, as trend-savvy entrepreneurs are discovering, vibrant colors are all the rage. Think lime green. Think electric blue. Think striking orange. Of particular interest, it seems, is combining brilliant colors into rainbow patterns. Even stalwart items like office supplies are being brightened with a veritable tidal wave of color. It's nearly enough to trigger a mass outbreak of . . . color-blindness.
