The Big Pony Collection Part 1: The Sporty

We were asked to test out the latest fragrance line from Ralph Lauren: “The Big Pony Fragrance“, and blog about our experience with each of the four scents for men. This is right in line with what I’ve been discussing with friends, how sexy it is for women to wear their hubby/boyfriend’s fragrance! Men’s fragrances […]

The Big Pony Collection

I’m a grown up tomboy so finding a scent that fits my personality and olfactory is very difficult. There have only been a few fragrances that I have ever used. My mother-in-law got a set of The Big Pony Collection for my husband which comes with 4 different scents and I tried it on myself […]

Paco Rabanne Launching Lady Million

About two months ago I went to an event to check-out Paco Rabanne‘s 1 Million men’s scent and their soon-to-be-launched Lady Million for women (appropriately enough the event took place at GoldBar in NYC!). I’ve waited this long to write about it because I didn’t want to get everyone excited about something that was still […]

Bond No. 9 Cooper Square & Washington Square Fragrances

July 4th holiday or not, I’m looking forward to fall. Why? That’s when niche fragrance perfumer Laurice Rahme, whose Bond No. 9 company is known for its scents named after New York neighborhoods, will roll out its two newest fragrances, Cooper Square, a men’s scent, and Washington Square, a women’s scent. Debuting September 1, Cooper […]

Marc Jacobs “Bang” Men’s Fragrance

I am officially counting down the days until July 30 arrives. The reason? Bang, Marc Jacobs’ highly-anticipated men’s fragrance–his first new men’s scent in a decade–bows at Marc Jacobs store and Bloomingdale’s. To promote the scent, Jacobs thought to pose himself naked for the ad campaign, shot by Juergen Teller. What do you think of […]

Voyage d’Hermès Eau de Toilette

Because it’s never too early to start looking for that Father’s Day present, may I suggest the new Voyage d’Hermès unisex fragrance. Sure, just like you, I love my Terre de Hermès (I spritz it with a passion)–but sometimes it’s nice to jazz it up for the summer. Voyage d’Hermès is lively and reassuring, new […]

Prada’s New His and Her Fragrances

Prada recently released the latest limited-edition scents in their Ephemeral Infusion collection which this year includes the first masculine eau de toilette in the series. When it comes to fragrances I stick mostly to Chanel’s Allure, Tom Ford’s White Suede, and occasionally Caleche from Hermes, and rarely find fragrances that I like enough to opt […]

Top 5 Fave Fragrance Brands to Watch for this Coming Year

Can’t wait to see what’s in store from these brands for 2010! Jeweled Fragrance Atomizer — When you’re on-the-go why not go […]

Sabon – The Essence of Pleasure

Admittedly I’m a little biased when it comes to Sabon; they’ve got a boutique two blocks from my apartment and not only is shopping there fun because there’s always someone offering to scrub your hands in something decadently soothing, but the prices are mild, the staff is super-friendly, and the line is Israel-based (I gotta […]
