Long, hot summer days are coming to an end and fall is fast approaching, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make the most of the remaining days of sunshine. Beauty News NYC has put together a few fab fragrance choices to help you make sweet memories of the final days of summer and transition smoothly into fall.
Elie Saab fragrances are quite possibly the queen bee of feminine scents. If romance had a smell, Rose Couture Eau de Toilette by perfumer Francis Kurkdijan, would be it. Launched earlier this spring, it explores the rose flower with a delightful mix of orange blossom, fresh peony and silken rose petals. Rose Couture EDT symbolizes love and romance with its pastel pink shade and iconic Elie Saab bottle finished with gold lettering. A dash of vanilla, vetiver, gardenia, fruity tones, and fresh patchouli bottom notes make this scent long-lasting, promising to carry you from days in the city to a romantic dinner date.
Available in 1.6 oz & 3 oz at Nordstrom (A Nordstrom exclusive)
Issey Miyake has outdone themselves with L’Eau d’Issey Pure. The perfume is a reinvented version of the acclaimed 90’s fragrance L’Eau d’Issey. Dreamy and fresh, this Eau de Parfum is effortlessly fancy and like its name, classically pure. It opens with a marine accord of sea salt maritima which is then perfectly paired with floral notes of rose damascena, white lily and ostentatious jasmine. The irresistible scent contains ambergris along with subtle musky and woody hints of Cashmeran setting a narrative of calming nature – an anecdote that Issey Miyake repeatedly plays with. The minimalist refined glass bottle has been crafted by American designer Todd Bracher and reinforces the true essence of purity. He explains that “the most basic image of water, (is) a droplet. The droplet symbolizes the fragrance and becomes the bottle.” A spritz of this scent is endearing on bare skin and is perfect for women about to head off on their final summer vacay!
Available in 3.0 oz at Sephora
The lavish Signorina Misteriosa Eau de Parfum by Salvatore Ferragamo is a simultaneously commanding and mysterious perfume. Unshockingly this captivating scent sits in the same family as another of our favorites, Signorina Eleganza, yet it instantly attracts attention all on its own. The opaque bottle and classic Vara bow have been paired with pink gold metal reminding us why Ferragamo scents are for the contemporary, stylish woman. It was created by perfumers Sophie Labbe and Nicolas Beaulieu and opens with a sensual fusion of wild blackberry and neroli. Tuberose and orange blossom are its beautiful heart notes which are delightfully combined with accents of black vanilla mousse and patchouli. If you’re after a glamorous, fruity oriental and bold fragrance then Signorina Misteriosa EDP is for you.
Available in 1.7 oz at Macy’s
