DKNY Exclusive - Snap up the limited edition PureDKNY A Drop of Verbena Collection -- plus this gorgeous bag -- to aid CARE's microfinance programs. Last time we checked in with DKNY's dedicated front woman and our favorite supermodel, Angela Lindvall, she was tracing the saga of PureDKNY, the company's decidedly eco-chic fragrance, and sourcing the scent's signature ingredient, Ugandan vanilla, in East Africe (check out marieclaire.com/uganda). Now she's been to Togo to source the verbena-basil for PureDKNY's latest incarnation, A Drop of Verbena. This month, DKNY is offering MC readers a collection that includes the Scent Spray, Body Butter, and Body Wash in A Drop of Verbena -- all wrapped up in a buttery-leather metallic tote made to haul your goods on adventures near and far. All proceeds will benefit CARE, a humanitarian organization that implements Village Savings and Loan Association microfinance programs for farmers to borrow money and manage their businesses, with an emphasis on helping women. What a fresh way to make a difference. The Goods: PureDKNY A Drop of Verbena Collection, $295. The Cause: CARE, a non-profit that provides microfinancing programs predicted to reach 30 million people in need over the next 10 years. The Deal: Available exclusively to MC readers at marieclaire.com/beautygivesback starting October 25.

CITRUS - Citrus scents can smack you in the face -- or remind you of Pledge. But the subtle lemony aroma from the verbena and basil in Pure DKNY A Drop of Verbena just makes you want to breathe it in...again...and again. Women's Scent - $45 to $85, depending on size, Macy's, Dillard's, Nordstrom, Bloomingdale's, Sephora, Ulta.

Pure Goodness - Donna Karan has always had a knack for making doing good look good. And now she makes it smell great, too. Her latest scent, PureDKNY Verbena, is not only beautiful, it's also sustainable and socially responsible. From the 100-percent-recyclable teardrop-shaped bottle to the Certified Forest Paper, this citrusy-sweet, lighthearted fragrance makes a positive impact. PureDKNY has pledged to lift more than one million women out of poverty through it's association with the humanitarian organization Care's Access Africa. Karan's goal is to use a portion of the profits to open Village Savings and Loan programs in 27 African countries. Global spokesperson (and eco-advocate) Angela Lindvall, who went to Uganda to see firsthand the impact of PureDKNY's contributions, explains, "We are helping to change lives one drop at a time." The true smell of success. (nordstrom.com)
