VERMILLION, South Dakota (June 27, 2012) – “Oscar-nominated screenwriter Nora Ephron, known for romantic comedies “When Harry Met Sally” and “Sleepless in Seattle” as well as books and essays, has died in New York after battling leukemia. She was 71.The New York Times cited her son, Jacob Bernstein, as saying Ephron died of pneumonia brought about by acute myeloid leukemia. Bernstein is a freelance reporter for the Times”, Bob Tourtellotte writes for Reuters.

Being the director/writer/producer of some of Hollywood’s finest movie and novel pieces, Ephron is surely among the privileged people who had quite the access to all things luxury. A good example of that would be the ever exquisite Chanel Coco Mademoiselle spray perfume, known to only be available to people of really high caliber. With her reputation in the movie industry, she of course, also deserves to pamper herself with such niceties, every once in a while.


“New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg issued a statement calling the loss “a devastating one” for the city’s arts and cultural community. Ephron, who often parlayed her own love life into movies like “Heartburn” and gave her acerbic take on aging in the 2010 essay collection, “I Remember Nothing: And Other Reflections,” had kept her illness largely private except for close friends and family. The elegant Ephron, known for habitually dressing in black, urged aging friends and readers to make the most of their lives”, Tourtellotte continues.

For people inspired by the luxury embodied by well-known personalities like the late Nora Ephron, there still exist alternatives to the store-priced niceties like these, which for your information could go cost you for around $200 or even more. Thanks to the countless innovations on the web, great offers like being able to purchase legit and reasonably-priced perfumes online.

“She began her career as a journalist but transitioned into movies, leaving behind a legacy of more than a dozen films, often featuring strong female characters that she either wrote, produced or directed. She was nominated for three Academy Awards for “Harry Met Sally”, “Sleepless in Seattle” and the drama “Silkwood” with Meryl Streep playing an anti-nuclear activist”, he ends.

Just like how these online-bought discount fragrances can leave that trailing scent of luxury on your body, Nora Ephron also has left her mark here in this world. And even if 10 or 20 years have passed, people just need to watch her movies and rediscover her innate talent and the warm person that she is.
