Ariana Grande’s CLOUD Eau de Parfum and Nicki Minaj’s QUEEN Eau de Parfum are both light and fresh scents that are unique in their own way.

The intoxicating fragrance opens with sexy top notes of Asian Pear and Bergamot.  The smooth sensual creamy dry down is wrapped with notes of Sleek Woods, Praline and Musk. Nicki’s iconic bottle is dipped in gold and further adorned with a removable headpiece that can be worn as a bracelet – a little something extra for her Barbz.

Carolina Herrera Welcomes Good Girl Légère Eau de Parfum

Calling all “good girls”. What better time than International Woman’s Day to introduce a fragrance inspired by strong women that celebrates female empowerment. Say hello to Carolina Herrera’s latest addition to the Good Girl EDP family, Good Girl Légère Eau de Parfum. Légère (which means Light) pays homage to women’s alegría de vivir (the happiness of life) and invites all women to be who we want to be and embrace all the roles we want.

Carolina Herrera GOOD GIRL Legere Eau de Parfum

Good Girl Légère Eau de Parfum invites all to have fun, a little bit naughty, and a lot outspoken. Built upon the eloquent pair of Tonka and Jasmine, Good Girl Légère combines notes of Wood (Sandalwood) with flowers (Ylang Ylang and Jasmine) and a hint of sweetness. The combination of  Sandalwood, Ylang Ylang, and Jasmine is a sophisticated tour de force that communicates glamour and female empowerment. Even the textures speak: Crystallized Absolut Tonka, a sugary textured and sensual desert made of sweetened milk, wraps and embraces the other ingredients for an innovative and sophisticated fragrance. Good Girl Légère Eau de Parfum speaks of a modern femme fatale who dares to play.

“The radiance of this fragrance opens like a flower and resonates day and night. It does not impose, it adapts to women’s chameleonic personality. It pays tribute to daring and strong woman. Légère (light) is not a synonym for fresh here, EDP Légère is as intense as the previous one. The quality of the raw material is high and the permanence on the skin, really long”, describes Louise Turner, the perfumer.

Good Girl’s unforgettable stiletto is back with Légère housed in a stunning black-lacquered bottle with a ribbed-gold heel; this time with gradient glass that shifts from midnight blue to transparent.

“We wanted an object, not a bottle, and what more power is there but being in a heel? The system took four years and 600 tests to perfect, for this new flacon, we have needed a hundred more”, explains Carolina Herrera de Baez, creative director of Carolina Herrera Fragrances. The color was a challenge: midnight blue on top and transparent at the bottom. The shoe, the symbol of female power, has captivated the public: “A girl has never enough shoes. If they tell you you have too many, stop talking to them,” recommends Carolina Herrera.

Good Girl Légère Eau de Parfum comes in three sizes: 2.7 oz ($117.00), 1.7 oz ($94.00), and 1 oz ($68.00); all available at Macy’s and www.macys.com.

The Cartier Fragrances We’re Loving for the Fall 2017 Season

It’s time for another season of change…….literally. As we go from the warmth of the summer season to the coolness of fall, we, much like the leaves on a tree, change. Our wardrobe, food, sometimes even our personal appearance changes. And of course, our fragrance choices change to match the new season. We put away the sweet, fresh and vibrant Eau de parfums for bold, musky scents. So we say goodbye to summer fragrances like Cartier Baiser Fou for women (a fragrance we admit we’ll continue to wear well into the fall season), and swap in fragrances that evoke the beauty of the fall season. Today we’re highlighting two wonderful Cartier fragrances created by Cartier Perfumer Mathilde.

First is our beloved Cartier Baiser Fou a fragrance that has captivated may during the warmer months, and Cartier’s newest fall fragrance for men, L’Envol de Cartier Eau de Toilette. Both of these fragrances elicit a feeling of power, boldness, and unstoppable verve.

 

Cartier Baiser Fou

Meaning “crazy kiss” in French – the sweet-scented Cartier Baiser Fou fragrance is mischievous, yet feminine, confident and playful. This sultry floral Eau de parfum is made up of the iconic sensual purple orchid, along with a touch of white chocolate, creating the balmy scent of a lipstick. For the first time, lilies and orchids have been explored in all their facets to create this memorable floral scent. Baier Fou is housed in a modern jeweled bottle, capped with a crimson cabochon.

L’Envol de Cartier Eau de Toilette

New for men this fall is the fresh and woody l’Eau de Toilette The Envol de Cartier. This fresh oriental features bold citrus notes and gaiac wood to give the wearer the confidence to fly this fall. Hesperide cloud, the sap of Gaiac wood and hydromel notes meet in a magnetic, luminous and liberating fluid. This is all the power of the masculine perfume L’Envol de Cartier. The bottle encapsulates the fragrance like a vital bulb. This precious object is part of Cartier’s great stylistic tradition, that of the guillochage, whose corks take up the famous motif.
