Salvatore Ferragamo Emozione Dolce Fiore Review

Salvatore Ferragamo Emozione Dolce Fiore Review

Salvatore Ferragamo Emozione Dolce Fiore Review

press-sampleThere was a time that the name Ferragamo made me think of beautiful leather handbags. Now when I hear mention of house Salvatore Ferragamo, I think of fragrance.

The brand has launched so many spectacular scents in the past few years, it’s frequently one I mention to friends when they are shopping. This year, leveraging off of the Emozione name, Ferragamo has released Emozione Dolce Fiore Eau De Toilette. This more feminine take on the original Emozione design features a rose gold bottle, and the scent itself even has a rosy hue. The bottle features a spray applicator and peachy-pink accents.

Emozione Dolce Fiore Review

Emozione Dolce Fiore is sexy, soft and subtle.  This fragrance works well for a woman who wants to project sophistication and class. The elegant scent features some of the same notes you enjoyed in the original Emozione, but with a slightly sweeter finish. Top notes are grapefruit, bergamot, and white peach.  Middle notes are rose damascena, peony, solar accord.  Base notes are white musk, vanilla, and suede.

Retail prices: 1.7 oz Eau de Parfum Spray $79, and 3.1 oz Eau de Parfum Spray $99. Retailers include Bloomingdales.com and Macys.com.

One of the latest by Narcisso Rodriguez is Narciso Eau De Parfum Poudree. Housed in a sleek and simple peachy-neutral box, this fragrance features a cube-shaped heavy glass bottle with a peach lined interior to house the scent. The lovely bottle features the word Narciso Rodriguez embossed on top, and a spray applicator.

In the past few years, I’ve become very fond of Narciso Rodriguez fragrances. This scent is very feminine, soft, and inviting.  It’s a classic, and subtle.  To me it’s something I would wear on vacation. It smells playful and has a clean powdery finish. Top notes include Bulgarian Rose and White Jasmine Petals, middle note is a powder musk, and base notes are Vetiver and Cedarwood.

3 oz. Eau de Parfum Spray is $114, and a 1.6 oz. Eau de Parfum Spray is $97.  You can buy this new scent exclusively at Bloomingdales.

Sleek MakeUP Blush By 3, Lace

press-sampleMy last two posts focused on makeup that’s ideal for dark skinned beauties, so it seemed appropriate that I continue along with the theme and introduce you to the Sleek MakeUP Blush By 3 Palette in the combination “Lace“.  This large mirrored palette contains three shades designed to either be used stand-alone, or layered for different looks!  In the Lace color trio, the shades are variations of orange.  The center shade has a gleaming metallic finish, and the other two are matte.

The shades included in this palette are (left to right): Crochet (a medium tangerine), Guipure (a gleaming coral), and Chantilly (a deep coral).  If you’re a fan of vivid blush that make the cheeks pop than this trio is for you. The formula is so amazingly rich, you really don’t even need to layer this product to get that color payoff!  I’m especially a fan of the shade “Guipure” because it features a unique golden finish.

Retail price is only $14.99!
