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!

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.

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.

beauty blog, makeup blog, product reviews blog, beauty reviews blogMother’s Day is coming up in a few months!  If you’re a fan of treating Mom to a new scent each year, the recently released Salvatore Ferragamo Signorina Misteriosa should be on your list of fragrances to consider. This deeply sexy scent has top notes of wild blackberry and neroli, heart notes of orange blossom and tuberose, and a finish of black vanilla mousse and patchouli. The scent is considered a member of the “oriental fruity” family, but those of you who shy away from spicy oriental scents really need to sample this fragrance.  To my nose, the vanilla and fruit notes are more dominant than the spices, delivering a scent that is soft, sensual and simply yummy!
