BATH AND BODY—If you're not on Team Valentine's Day, you'll appreciate this video from Lush. The brand turned their "Ex Factor" bath bomb into a viral video star. Because, really, what says true love more than a nice relaxing bubble bath on a cold day? [Racked Inbox]

MAKEUP—Chanel is also getting in the Valentine's Day spirit by launching Love Letters, a website where Peter Phillips has "remixed" Chanel beauty products into gorgeous love notes. You can also make your own. Let's hope you're in love with someone whose initials are double Cs. [Racked Inbox]

FRAGRANCE—Socialite Olivia Palermo will be the face of a new perfume from Rochas. So far, the name and concept are being kept secret, but there will be an official presentation after the Rochas show at Paris Fashion Week on February 29th. Maybe they should call it Leap Year? [WWD]
