She smells good these days! Why you ask...well she has a new perfume and What girl doesn't love the dainty, always feminine looks of Ms. Betsey Johnson? We know we can't resist her clothes, and now, with the release of her first perfume, (the aptly-named Betsey Johnson Perfume) ($55), we know we can't resist her scent, either. Just like her duds, Betsey's fragrance is flirty and fun—layering fruity top notes of pear, tangerine and black currant with seductive bottom ones, like vanilla and musk. And topping the whole package off is this fun glass bottle, capped with pink "jewels."

Picture Amazing Race without the frenzy. Challenges are set up for maximum exposure to the culture, not as a test of speed or prowess. One challenge might be to make a 45-second commercial at a Viking museum in Oslo. Another might be to try a dead man's finger in Copenhagen (which turns out to be a hotdog). Points are accrued by completing tasks and videos are judged for creativity, not cinematography. "This isn't about using an expensive camcorder, but being creative and original," notes Belkin.
Cost is $2,850 per person, including international airfare, lodging, and transportation (by train, bus, ferry, or foot). Shorter and cheaper options are available. The first trip is being offered this spring. As inducement for those skeptical about whether this new venture can deliver the goods, participants' credit cards are not charged until after their return.
