Parisienne (Yves Saint Laurent)
The noses at YSL hit it bang on with the creation of Parisienne.
A fittingly romantic name for a scent that combines roses, violets and peonies on a bed of earthy tones all the while infused with the slick scents of lacquer and vinyl.
All in all this fragrance is soft and gentle yet hot and sexy at the same time.
Chanel No. 5
All Coco Chanel wanted was “a woman’s fragrance that smells like woman” and when designer Ernest Beaux nailed it on his fifth attempt, the name of his forever classic masterpiece was simple and obvious—N°5. A bouquet of ylang-ylang, neroli, jasmine and rose starts off this scent and is completed with sandalwood, vanilla and other woody notes. The first Chanel N°5 was presented in a simple rectangular bottle with the top representative of the Place Vendome inParis. In 1959, the packaging was honoured by a spot in the permanent collections at theMuseumofModern ArtinNew York.
Gucci by Gucci
Modern, alluring and feminine best describe Gucci by Gucci. Fruity top notes of guava and pear reminds us of luscious and refreshing cocktails on a beach while the fragrant scent of the tiare flower only conjures further visions of sunny places far away.
The underlying aroma of the honeyed patchouli in this delicious fragrance only serves to keep us far from home.
Prada Infusion d’Iris
Prada Infusion D’Iris is a modern scent that fortifies its connection with the time honoured methods of traditional perfume making. Using only the best natural ingredients available, Infusion D’Iris is crisp and airy while maintaining modern and mature overtones. “Infusion D’Iris” is taken from the time honoured infusion process required to distil the delicate notes from the root of the iris. The perfume opens with hints of mandarin, galbanum, orange and orange blossom and leads to the heart of the scent, iris, cedar and vetiver. It is presented in a simple bottle representative of fine glassware of days past.
Daisy (Marc Jacob)
So cute! The fanciful daisies atop the pretty golden bottle is enough to catch the eye of any girl—young and still young. This fun filled fragrance abounds with fruits and florals on a bed of warm woods making it suitable for both work and play. Daisy is bright and sparkling yet not overly sweet—captivating and attention grabbing but not overtly sexy and edgy. Who says being all sunshine and daisies is not a good thing?
