Fragrance

By Christina Hull

Knowing how to economize is a virtue, especially in a city where “studio apartment” is simply a polite word for “closet.” Fragrant body creams pack a lot in a little, efficiently combining moisturizer and perfume in one without sacrificing an ounce of luxury. Not only are these scented creams strong enough to linger on your skin all day, they come in the prettiest jars, perfect for displaying on your vanity. That is, if you had enough room for one.

Chanel Allure Sensuelle Body Cream

The rebellious younger sister to Chanel’s Allure, Allure Sensuelle combines fruity fragrances of bergamot and mandarin orange with the spicy scent of pink pepper and exotic base notes of patchouli, French vanilla, amber and frankincense. It’s mysterious and modern without being oppressive or old-ladyish. The cream itself is a dream, sinking effortlessly into skin for a dewy – not greasy – feel.

Missoni Body Butter

Exuberant, joyful and passionate, Missoni’s signature perfume is the fragrant reflection of its iconic clothing line, and the perfect scent for the warmer months ahead. Pretty florals like magnolia, peony and rose mix with luscious fruits like Italian bergamot, mandarin and bitter orange. Amber and gianduia chocolate anchor the fragrance. The body butter delivers the sensual scent in a dense, ultra rich cream that is formulated with shea butter. To get more information, go to www.missoni.com

Lisa Simon Sumptuous Sari Firming Body Cream

Lisa Simon’s beauty line pays tribute to India, a country that has long fascinated Simon with its complexity, spirituality and tradition. In particular, her Sumptuous Sari Firming Body Cream is inspired by the graceful elegance of the colorful sari worn by Indian women. The cream is lightly scented with Indian rose, a unique, heady fragrance that manages to be both lovely and exotic at the same time. Ingredients like green cardamom stimulate and energize, while kola nut, rich in draining caffeine, firms the figure.
