Fragrance

By Amy Sciaretto

The most delicious thing about Clean perfumes are the simple yet subtle variations of crisp, shower fresh auras. The line is a celeb fave -Jennifer Aniston and Jamie-Lynn Sigler are fans – and has launched a back-to-basics, soap-inspired scent, dubbed Simply Soap. The sudsy fragrance has notes of sweet citrus, apple, lemon and violet, but it smells exactly like a lathery bar of soap. One spritz will leave you smelling like you just stepped out of a bubble bath, all day long! The formula consists of an organic corn-derived alcohol base, so it’s safe for even the most sensitive of skin. Suds up!

L’Occitane’s Honey & Lemon Shimmering Eau de Toilette isn’t merely a fragrance that will leave you scented with the warm, comforting scent of Honey & Lemon. The glitter encased in the honeycomb embossed bottle will bejewel your hair and skin with a golden, luminous sparkle and sheen. Best of all, it doesn’t stain the clothes. This sweet/tart scent will remind you of a cozy Sunday afternoon cup of tea being sipped while lounging on an overstuffed couch on a chilly day.

Available at L’Occitane locations or http://www.usa.loccitane.com


Brooklyn…it’s not just for hipsters anymore! Thank God New York City perfumer Bond No. 9 has recognized this fact with its first ode – or is that Eau’d – to Brooklyn? Bond No. 9 Brooklyn is as edgy as the 718 location it’s named after. It’s a sassy swirl of grapefruit, cardamom, cypresswood, juniper berries and leather that’ll remind you of the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. Who needs to head over the Williamsburg Bridge when you’ve got your own spritz of Brooklyn right here in NYC?

Available at http://www.bondno9.com or Saks Fifth Avenue locations.

Cereus fragrances aren’t afraid to tout their status as luxe and somewhat unattainable. They’re bold, yet are packaged in unassuming, classic-looking bottles with leather-styled caps, yet the scents are meant to be worn by ladies and gents with attitude and ambition. Number 3 is a masculine and strong aura, yet it pairs nicely with stilettos. The men’s Number 4 cologne is morning dew fresh without being too clingy or heavy.

Jo Malone’s nose has knack for oddly enticing combinations. Her absolutely elegant Sweet Lime and Cedar cologne boasts notes inspired by Thai cuisine, including zesty citrus, coconut, blood orange, pink pepper and tamarind. As is the Malone tradition, It’s a rich scent, but it’s also one that lasts and lasts, well into the evening cocktail hour. The line also features a Dry Body Oil, which when layered, ensures the staying power of the fragrance and super smooth, divinely scented skin.

Available at Jo Malone counters at Bergdorf Goodman or http://www.jomalone.com.
