There's nothing women like more than flowers (OK, diamonds perhaps). To promote its new Pure Beauty cosmetic outlets, Watsons' merchandise director Maria Norrman and model Lisa Selesner spent part of yesterday handing out white roses in Times Square.

No surprise, free stuff doesn't last long in Hong Kong and all 500 stems disappeared in about 10 minutes.

'Flowers represent the beautiful women and we believe with the opening of our store, we can make them blossom,' Norrman explained. Whether all those people with their paws stuck out to grab a free bloom were aware of Watsons' new counter is another issue.

The Pure Beauty store in Times Square's basement also offers a free makeup service by beauty consultant Yuji Tong every Friday to Sunday.
