TREND: Floral for Fall Fragrance
As the fine folks at fragrance house Jo Malone say, “this fall, fragrance is all about florals.” While summer can be a bit more tropical – coconut and pina colada, anyone? – fall will bring us back to the feminine scent of the flower. Simple, stunning with thousands of choices.
Here, a few NEW fall fragrances to consider for the season. A new smell, a new you…
Jo Malone Wild Bluebell Cologne – This quirky and imaginative scent is dewy and floral with bright notes that includes fresh bluebell, clove, Lily of the valley, jasmine and musk. This is the first scent to be inspired by a whimsical Jo Malone™ fairytale – a story of Wild Bluebell, a curious girl mesmerized by the scents of English Bluebells in the British woodlands. $55.00 for 30ml
Molton Brown NEW Fine Fragrance, Lijiang – A floral musky scent capturing the light, delicate softness of silk and crisp tea. Its lead ingredient, osmanthus absolute, brings a fresh delicacy and sophistication to the Chinese-inpsired fragrance. $120.00 (exclusively at SAKS)
Chanel No 19 Poudre– A rich blend of floral and green notes, followed by May Rose and Iris from Florence. The finale: a chime of Chypre with a subtle, woody Vetiver note. TRIVIA: August 19 is the date that Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel was born. $119.00
Balenciaga Paris L’Essence – An intimate fragrance with the intensity of violet. A leathery violet with vibrant woody notes. L’Essence intensifies the Balenciaga Paris violet essence. While the first Balenciaga Paris fragrance captured the classic side of the brand, L’Essence gets closer to the skin with leather and vibrant woody notes revealing the modern facet of Balenciaga. $95.00 for 1.7oz
Burberry Body – Mario Testino directed the scantily clad Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and, if the ad is any indication, the fragrance exudes sex! Notes: fruity composition that begins with notes of fresh green absinthe, peach and freesia. Roses and iris are in the heart, leaning on the base of sandalwood, cashmerean, musk, amber and vanilla. $75.00 for 2 oz
