Where does one start when talking about the Valentines Day fragrances you should be rocking on this, the day of love? It hardly matters since, Annick Goutal, Caché Beyond Haute, CLEAN and L’Artisan Parfumeur all kill.
Make a Natural Impression
Launched in 1986, cult-classic Annick Goutal Eau Du Ciel Eau de Toilette ($149, annickgoutal.com, Annick Goutal Boutique: 646-964-4819, ships nationwide) is back with its fresh and soft appeal. Top notes include linden and Brazilian rose wood, seamlessly meshed in the middle are violet leaves, neroli and iris, while bottom includes notes of orange blossom, which enriches the woodsy melody of this so pure and so innocent fragrance.
Make A Statement
After giving us 30 years of much-needed retail therapy, Caché Boutiques have gotten into the fragrance game with Beyond Haute ($64, cache.com). Known for selling clothing that makes a woman feel uber-feminine, consider Beyond Haute the ultimate statement-making accessory- a seductive mix of fruit and floral notes with a touch of sophisticated woods.
By clean, I mean wear the NEW CLEAN AIR ($69, cleanperfume.com) that I’ve personally fallen head over heels for since receiving it. AIR begs of woody notes that gently wash your skin with a refreshing, crisp scent when worn alone. When worn with other CLEAN fragrances, AIR has a floral bend.
Feel effortless and blissful with a scent that is uniquely you. The NEW CLEAN AIR ($69, cleanperfume.com) is a woody floral fragrance that is refreshing, crisp and feminine when worn alone. AIR can be transformed into a floral experience when layered together with all CLEAN women’s fragrances. Ruhi Patel, Perfumer at IFF & Creator of this lovely fragrance says…
[su_quote]“Clean Air evokes the expansive airiness of a hot air balloon ride over the Himalayas. For the introduction, Mountain Air Accord conveys the invigorating rush and liberating feeling of a limitless horizon. In the heart, the sheer floral bouquet of Sparking Freesia and dewy Peony unveils the fragrance’s luminous grace and ethereal femininity. In the background, whispers of Powdered Aldehydes and silken White Amber are wrapped in enveloping Cashmere Woods and Musk to create a blissful feeling and weightless sensuality.”[/su_quote]
Think Feminine and Flirty
Fill thoughts of Parisian nights with the addictive and unwavering feminine fragrance L’Artisan Parfumeur Nuit de Tuberose ($120, artisanparfumeur.com) – ooo la la mon cherie! Tubéreuse is a sparkling pink pepper topped with clove and mandarin. The center of this fragrance is softened by rose and ylang-ylang with mango for freshness and harmony. And the base? Precious woods, layered with aromatic musks and balms. Make Nuit de Tubéreuse your new scent of luminous Parisian nights, narcotic and unexpected, romantic and compulsive. An incandescent exploration of one of the world’s most luxurious blooms.
