Fall Fragrances

I’ve been adding to my perfume stash with the change in seasons in mind. The cozy, warm herbal fragrances are definitely my favorite and this is the perfect time of year to work these into the rotation. Here are my current favorites:

Lollia Relax Eau de Parfum is probably my new most favorite fragrance (and actually beauty item). I am addicted to the gentle, soothing fragrance with lavender, white orchid, Tahitian vanilla, bee blossom honey, and Indian amber. It sits by my bed, ready for part of my nighttime routine to practice some aromatherapy relaxation. But I find myself reaching for the beautiful bottle in the morning as well.

A Dozen Roses Amber Queen Eau de Parfum Spray is on the floral edge of the spectrum with apricot, clementine, a hint of ginger and amber. It finds femininity in an exotic Bengal rose accord but still manages to stay light and fresh on the skin. This fragrance is youthful but regal at the same time.

Bvlgari Mon Jasmin Noir Eau de Parfum has the musky, woody flavor I have been craving with the arrival of cooler evenings. The stunning bottle screams modern and feminine. No wonder with the top note of lily of the valley and middle note of Sambac jasmine.

Chanel COCO Noir is the first Chanel perfume I have been drawn to in a while. For me, it is a departure from classic Chanel with patchouli and sandalwood. Grapefruit and bergamot give it lightness and the floral theme persists with rose and jasmine. On me, the finished product dries down fairly rosy, but the sandalwood gives it the sophistication I am craving.

Houbigant Paris Orangers en Fleurs Eau de Parfum is a warm, luxurious translation of the Orange Blossom, one of my favorites. (Did you know the Orange Blossom is a symbol of fertility, of abundance—because Orange trees produce flowers and fruit at the same time?) Turkish rose and Egyptian jasmine absolute round out the brisk orange blossom. At first, the tuberose is prominent, but as it dries, Nutmeg, Ylang and cedar wood round it out. The result is a woody, musky floral.

Right now, Neiman Marcus is celebrating 10 days of beauty. Just by purchasing any cosmetics or fragrance item, you earn an entry to win a beauty bundle.One lucky lady will win ALL of the bundles (whoa!)
