Nina Ricci Teams with Ladurée: La Tentation de Nina

Here’s a pairing that would have likely never happened were Olivier Theyskens still at the helm of Nina Ricci (I so miss him there!). The brand has collaborated with Ladurée for a new scent, La Tentation de Nina. Well, it could have happened with Theyskens, but I feel like it would have resulted in a caviar macaron-inspired perfume or something!

Cartier La Panthere Eau de Parfum: Wild at Heart

I am creature of habit when it comes to fragrance. Partly because I want people to know who’s there when I creep up behind them (no, but really), and partly so that my boy will think of me when he smells my perfume. Florals are my favorite – especially white flowers like gardenia – which is why the new Cartier La Panthere eau de parfum seems made for me.

Escada Born in Paradise

Escada Launches Their 22nd Limited Edition Fragrance

Escada’s limited edition scents have developed a cult following and their latest, Born in Paradise ($20-75), will no doubt serve to further that tradition. Why? Because it’s inspired by the piña colada. I feel like everyone has a deep relationship when it comes to the piña colada. I can totally remember the first time I had one – I was eight, and it was in Hawaii. It was love at first sip.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen Launch Two Scents: Elizabeth and James Nirvana

The Olsens just released two fragrances as part of their Elizabeth & James line exclusively at Sephora. Two years in the making, and I love everything about them! Called Nirvana Black and Nirvana White, they range in price from $22 for a rollerball to $75 for a 50ml bottle. They’re affordable, but they smell luxe.

I got Sephora Favorites Fragrance Sampler for Him for one of my favorite trainers at Barry’s Bootcamp who I happen to know is a total fragrance snob…how perfect is this for a discerning olfactory lover! For $65 you not only get 14 samples, but you also get a voucher to get a full size bottle of one of the scents.

CB I Hate Perfume Gingerbread

CB I Hate Perfume Gingerbread

I can’t say that I’ve ever wanted to smell like gingerbread, but the CB I Hate Perfume gingerbread scent just re-launched and OMG does it make me want to eat a gingerbread house…like give me a whole house and let me bite into it like a food-deprived animal….that’s how yummy it smells.

A New Perfumer at Hermès

A New Hermes Perfumer: The Nose Knows

I have only met one nose in my life. No one told me her name. They simply whispered, “she’s THE nose.” I can’t imagine the pressure of having such gifted olfactory senses. Are yours so heightened that you can smell things a mile away? Christine Nagel’s are! She’s developed more luxury fragrances than we can even count, including Miss Dior Cherie and a slew of Jo Malone London scents…
