Tom Ford Violet Blonde The New Fragrance For Fall

To me the Tom Ford fragrance collection is like the Christian Louboutin shoes of the perfume world, super chic, elegant, sophisticated, sexy, classic & timeless, a must-have. My latest favorite is Tom Ford Violet Blonde. It’s exactly the type of smell I love, woody, tough to describe, and exotic. It’s also like wearing a nice suite, it makes me feel strong and beautiful in an instant. Ha! If you want to stand out and not have this what I call a ‘generic perfume’ you’ll might want to give this perfume masterpiece a go.

Tom Ford says, “Violet Blonde has the spirit of a classical, European fragrance. It is formal, polished, and yet draws you in closer and closer, like a beautifully dressed woman whose refined presence charms, then fascinates, and ultimately seduces you.”

L’Eau D’Issey Issey Miyake Parfums Summer Limited Edition

Since 1995, Issey Miyake fragrances have pioneered the reinvention of their summer limited editions. For Summer 2011 (this one launched May 2011),  L’Eau D’Issey for her was inspired by the waters warmed and brightened by the sun. Created by Jacques Cavallier. Fragrance notes include: rose, pear water, peony, carnation, osmanthus, and precious woods. Like all Issey Miyake perfumes they are fresh but complex fresh, never ordinary, and unusually good.

OH! Lola! Marc Jacobs, Chloe, Forbidden Euphoria, Lovestruck, Gwen Stefani Super G

Coty Prestige Fall 2011 Fragrance Launches. These are no ordinary perfumes, they smell good, the bottles & packaging are a work of art, they will go down in history as very classic. Today I’m wearing Calvin Klein Forbidden Euphoria, I love the original, these become one of my all times most favorite perfumes.

Marc Jacobs Oh, Lola!

Oh, Lola, the re-energized twist on the iconic fragrance. This sparkling and fruity scent is refreshing and light, personifying Lola’s flirtatious free spirit. The bottle is girly and vibrant pink with the new campaign featuring Dakota Fanning.

Narciso Rodriguez In Color For Her and Essence Perfumes

Loving the new Narciso Rodriguez In Color For Her and Essence limited edition Perfumes for fall 2011. The bottles are beautiful. In Color is a bit more woody and warm than Essence. Just in case you’re wondering. Although Essence smells more floral and powdery than In Color it’s a more complex floral, woody floral if you will. I would say I’m more In Color For Her than Essence because I tend to wear warmer perfumes & not into florals.

L to R: Narciso Rodriguez In Color For Her and Essence Perfumes available September 15th, 2011 at Saks Fifth Avenue.

“I love color when it’s pre; it can be subtle or it can be very strong, bit most of all I love it when it’s very pure. Pure color elicits profound emotions and memories and that’s what fragrance should be about.”-Narciso Rodriguez.

Estée Lauder LIMITED EDITION Bronze Goddess Eau Fraîche Skinscent

Summer Perfumes. Estée Lauder LIMITED EDITION Bronze Goddess Eau Fraîche Skinscent. Fragrance Type: Solar Floral. Top Notes: Sicilian Bergamot, Mandarin. Middle Notes: Tiare Milk-Tahitian Gardenia Petals, Coconut Oil, Orange Flower Buds, Jasmine, Magnolia Petals, Myrrh. Base Notes: Amber, Sandalwood, Vetiver, Caramel, Coconut Cream.

Although Estée Lauder LIMITED EDITION Bronze Goddess Eau Fraîche Skinscent is described as a warm type of perfume in Estée Lauder’s website my verdict is it’s not so warm and more of a sharp citrus. If you’re into that kind of scent it’s perfect for you. However, for my own taste I would come up with yet another Bronze Goddess Limited Edition perfume with an added sweetness and woods to it.  I would make it the ultimate warm sweet/woods summer classic perfume.
