Look By Vera Wang

Look is the name of Vera Wang’s newest fragrance, and when I saw the bottle and the ad campaign, it seemed to me that this was a departure from the bridal feel of Wang’s fragrances and branding. It’s not up to me to say whether that’s good or not, but I thought it was reflected […]

Get Notorious With Ralph Lauren

Ralph Lauren has a new perfume out called Notorious. This one takes a departure from other Ralph Lauren fragrances in that it’s an oriental.

No. 5 Eau Premiere by Chanel – Same Story Different Ending

Chanel’s No. 5 continues to be  one of the best-selling perfumes in every country, every year, and in France it is almost always number 1.  I, personally, don’t really like the scent so I think it has more to do with heritage and prestige than how the scent actually smells, but anyways.

The Beckhams Do Good with Their Newest Perfume

Have I mentioned that I love fall fragrances? I love fall fragrances. The newest fragrance you have to check out is Victoria Beckham’s Signature for Her. It’s completely different from the Beckham fragrance that was released last year (which I found too cool and masculine). This one is warm, with heavy vanilla notes that aren’t […]
