Aerin Beauty Mediterranean Honeysuckle Review

Aerin Beauty Mediterranean Honeysuckle Review

press-sampleIf Fall weather makes you drag a bit, it’s a great time to buy a summer fragrance! For me, scents of summer put a bit of spring in my step, and Aerin Beauty Mediterranean Honeysuckle is a great choice! This scent is a fruity floral. Notes include Italian Bergamot, Mandarin Oil, White Lily of the Valley, Gardenia, and Jasmine. The size is ideal for travel, or for beauty lovers on a budget!

Issey Miyake L’eau D’Issey Pure

Issey Miyake L’eau D’Issey Pure

press-sampleInnocence is the first thing that comes to mind when I sampled the latest scent by Issey Miyake. This scent strives to capture the scent of a drop of water on a woman’s skin, and while there are plenty of floral hints to the scent, the overall impression to me is simply acquatic and clean.

Top notes of this scent are rose water, Cyclamen accord, Peony, White Lily, and Carnation heart.  Middle notes are florals, and base notes are woods, musk, Osmanthus, and Tuberose.

L'Eau D'Issey Pure

L’Eau D’Issey Pure

The profile of an Issey Miyake bottle is instantly recognizeable. Simple, streamlined, and elegant.  Generally a crystalline sphere symbolizing a drop of water tops any bottle of Issey Miyake fragrance, but for artistic purposes this detail was skipped.  For L’Eau D’Issey Pure, the bottle is this rare and precious drop of water.  This scent is ideal for the woman who generally doesn’t like to wear perfume at all.  It’s very subtle, natural, and…pure!

Retail price is $108 for a 3.0 fl. oz. Eau de Parfum Spray, and $88 for a 1.6 fl. oz. Eau de Parfum Spray.  Retailers include Nordstrom, Sephora, Macys, and Lord & Taylor.

NEW Salvatore Ferragamo Scents

Salvatore Ferragamo Tuscan Scent and Tuscan Soul

Salvatore Ferragamo Tuscan Scent and Tuscan Soul

press-sampleThe latest scents from the house of Ferragamo are very luxe, and very exclusive! Intended for true aficionados, and sold exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue, these new additions to the Salvatore Ferragamo Tuscan Soul and Salvatore Ferragamo Tuscan Scent collections pay tribute to the splendor of Italy.

Tuscan Soul La Corte was inspired by the Italian Renaissance, with notes of jasmine absolute and almond milk chased with a heart of white lily and iris.  Dry down notes are succulent vanilla bourbon and white amber.  Tuscan Soul La Corte is the latest addition to the “Tuscan Soul” collection of exclusive fragrances available at Saks, and launched in July.  An Eau De Toilette 2.5 fl. oz. spray bottle retails for $190.

Tuscan Scent Leather Rose is a marriage of opposites: the masculine scent of leather paired with the feminine scent of the rose simply works.  Top notes of rose infusion and cardamom launch the experience, then heart notes of centifolia rose and Bulgarian rose anchor the scent.  Dry down notes of cypriol and suede finish the olfactory experience.  In my mind, this scent is inspired by an elegant woman sauntering into a Ferragamo shoe shop during his early years as a designer.  Her rose scent pairs with his leather in an electric way!  Tuscan Scent Leather Rose is the latest addition to the “Tuscan Scent” collection, and a 2.5 fl. oz. Eau De Parfum spray bottle retails for $250.

Both boxes feature weighty wooden stands to use as a display for your new treasure.  Each scent is truly unique, and I highly recommend you sample some of the scents in these collections if you are looking for a new signature scent that is uncommon!  Click HERE to shop these fragrances at Saks.com, and keep scrolling for more photos of these gorgeous bottles!

Rose Couture by Elie Saab

Elie Saab Rose Courture Le Parfum

Elie Saab Rose Couture Le Parfum

If you’re in search of a classic scent that is truly timeless, it’s time to explore Elie Saab Rose Couture! Introduced in April 2016, this scent comes housed in the easily recognized Elie Saab faceted bottle. Housed inside of a heavy glass atomizer, Rose Couture is tinted pink as a nod to the rose notes within, and matches the heavy parchment box that protects it.

This scent, quite simply, is an elegant classic.  I’m generally not a big fan of florals, but the fruity and woodsy notes in this scent provide balance. Rose Couture would make a wonderful gift for an elegant, sophisticated woman.  Notes: orange flower, jasmine, rose nectar, vetiver, sandalwood, patchouli, mandarin tree blossom, gardenia, and warm honey rose.

Retail price is $108 for a 3.0 oz Eau de Toilette Spray, and $80 for a 1.6 oz. Eau de Toilette spray.  Grab yours at Nordstrom. Keep scrolling for an image of the box!
