The JOSIE brand is multi-cultural, multi-faceted and multi-hued. The JOSIE woman has a youthful attitude and vibrant spirit. She proudly banishes beige and lives passionately in full color. Natori brings this attitude to life by using pops of color, bold graphics, and an intriguing mix of patterns & textures in her designs.

The JOSIE brands next realm is olfactive, translating the essence of JOSIE fashion into a new scent with a spirited energy and sexy edge. Inspired by JOSIE women who live life with no rules, no pretenses, and no apologies — from the scent to the rule-breaking packaging, each element of the JOSIE fragrance is juxtaposed to capture the energetic spirit of the JOSIE woman.

“I wanted to create a fragrance for JOSIE that exudes charisma. I am thrilled with the scent – it truly captures the essence of the brand. Today’s woman knows that there is value in expressing her true self and the JOSIE fragrance, a beautiful sensual scent, gives her one more way to express her irrepressible individual style.” – Josie Natori


Vibrant. Confident. Effortlessly Sexy.

The JOSIE fragrance is about sensuality that sparkles, and floats, and envelops, and effortlessly says “Im here…come closer.” JOSIE is a sexy, contemporary scent that is a beautiful blend of energetic femininity and enveloping sensuality.

The introduction

The fragrance opens with a vibrant accord of crisp Asian Pear and Bergamot showered with luscious Dewy Leaves to announce “I’m here.”

The heart

A voluptuous bouquet of Sampaguita, Freesia, and Wild Orchid playfully radiates a feminine point of view.

The national flower of the Philippines, Sampaguitas name is derived from sumpa kitawhich means „I promise you; and the Sampaguita flower is a symbol of love.

The close

The intoxicating mixture of Sandalwood and White Musk intensifies with Patchouli – leaving a sexy and addictive trail of see-through sensuality.

“There is a confidence that comes alive in Josie’s lingerie….sexy, yet still approachable. We mirrored that feeling in the fragrance, showcasing the signature Sampaquita flower from Josie’s native Philippines with texture from patchouli and woods, and bold strokes of color.” – Perfumer Frank Voelkl and Master Perfumer Honorine Blanc


A unique contemporary work of art, the JOSIE fragrance packaging captures the brand’s design aesthetic in a bold and innovative way. The bottle is unapologetically daring. In front, it has charisma to spare with bold black & white graphic columns. From the side, its distinct modern silhouette is juxtaposed with the modern transparency of a see-through dip tube in JOSIEs signature red.

The carton offers its own unique twist on the classic black & white graphic and surprises with a burst of feminine florals inside. The Collection packaging is beautifully mismatched to achieve a statement of perfect imperfection.

There are a few things I miss in the summer – Like sweatshirts, comfy socks and scarves!  I love being cozy and comfortable and with summer half over – I am actually looking forward to boot season! Call me crazy!  I recently came across the best socks ever. Bombas.

It is time to upgrade your sock closet!  They come in Mens, Womens and Kids. They have the perfect amount to stretch, a little cushion for the heel on the ankle ones and a bit of tension right around the arch of your foot. So awesome for all day wear and all the fun colors!

The word Bombas is derived from the Latin word for bumblebee.
Bees work together to make the hive a better place. We like that.
When we say Bee Better, we mean it as a mantra, a way of approaching every day.
It’s stitched into the inside of every pair of Bombas for a reason.
It’s a reminder to push yourself harder to be better at your athletic pursuits.
A reminder that these socks are engineered and designed with thought to bee better.
A reminder that you helped someone in need with your purchase.
And a reminder that we’re all connected and little improvements can
add up to make a big difference.
