Just like last week’s Fragrance Friday post, I’m taking one fragrance…
Whether you know their signature scent or you want to grab something special for someone special, I’ve curated a list of my fave fragrances from the past year to help you out.
MY BURBERRY BLACK
This one is a dark floral with a hint of sexy, syrupy fruit. Notes include: Sun-drenched Jasmine, Peach Nectar, Candied Rose, Amber Patchouli. It’s a bit spicy and mysterious. And it can be very bold, stong and can sometimes turn a bit smokey depending on body chemistry.
The lovely peeps at Burberry sent this over to me already engraved, so I don’t know if that’s something retail stores are doing (but OMG it looks so cool!)
MISS DIOR SILKY BODY MIST
This is a little different than a regular EDP or body mist. This combines a non-oily body care mist with the iconic scent of Miss Dior. Think luxurious, feminine and floral. Notes include: Italian Mandarin Essence, Egyptian Jasmin Essence, Indonesian Patchouli Essence.
ATELIER COLOGNE NECESSAIRE (Founder’s Collection)
If you want a little bit of everything, this collection of Atelier Cologne is curated by founder’s Sylvie Ganter and Christophe Cervasel, and it is a great introduction to the brand. Scents include: Atelier Cologne Travel Sprays in Sud Magnolia, Pomélo Paradis, Orange Sanguine, Vanille Intensée, Bois Blonds, Cédre Atlas.
MARC JACOBS DIVINE DECADENCE
The latest edition in the woodsy Decadence line, Divine Decadence adds a hint of champagne effervescence to the mix. And look at that amazing bottle. What a showpiece! Notes include: Champagne Extract, Orange Blossom, Creamy Bergamot, Gardenia, Hydrangea, Honeysuckle, Saffron, Vanilla, Liquid Amber.
MARC JACOBS SPLASH in CUCUMBER, COTTON, PEAR, RAIN
The Marc Jacobs line of Splash fragrances are simple, natural perfumes that were released to capture the essence of summer.
Cucumber is green and fresh, featuring notes of cucumber, freesia and musk.
Cotton is a floral woody musk fragrance featuring notes of bergamot, jasmine, cotton accords and musk.
Pear is a fruity and delectable woody scent featuring notes of pear, gin accord and wood.
Rain is a watery floral fragrance with lush and pure notes of wet cut grass, tropical rain accord and musk.
If you really want to give something personalized, grab a few scents from Demeter and create your own combos! Here are my two go-to combos:
Tea Time = Condensed Milk + Coriander Tea
Ron Burgundy = Mahogany + Paperback + This Is Not a Pipe (get it?)
Still to come: my gold-themed round-up and Bite Beauty kits and sets!
