Tom Ford Neroli Portofino Collection

I wouldn’t wear all of them, but I have yet to smell a Tom Ford scent that doesn’t leave me marveling at how distinctive it is…

Is this the most gorgeous cologne or what?

Father's Day Beauty Picks

Father’s Day Beauty Picks

If your father is anything like mine he’s a total Beauty Snob. While my mother has a handful of go-to beauty products and is completely unadventurous, my father will try anything and everything and loves to pamper himself.

Moscow-Based Beauty Brand Rouge Bunny Rouge Comes Stateside

Anglo-Russian brand Rouge Bunny Rouge recently launched stateside, and I had the chance to play around with some of their products. Initially I was intrigued because it’s a Moscow-based brand, and well….I’ve never, that I’m aware of, come across a luxury makeup brand from there.

Comme des Garçons x Stephen Jones Perfume

Comme des Garçons x Stephen Jones have just launched their second fragrance in six years. Available at the Trading Museum Comme des Garçons (54 Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré in Paris – there is currently an exhibition of Stephen Jones hats), and at Dover Street Market for $165, it fittingly comes in hat box-shaped packaging stuffed with white netting.

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

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.
