I’m trying to make this blog a little more interesting, which is why I’m dedicating certain days for different topics. For example, I’ve introduced ‘Wedding Wednesdays’, and now, Fridays will be dedicated to posts specifically on fragrances for both males and females.
Besides the name being clever, I love the “smell goods”, mostly perfumes. I’ve cut down a bit since having my daughter because I didn’t want her reacting to it. When I was pregnant with her, the scents did bother me some due to my pregnancy-induced heightened sense of smell. Now that is over, I can now relish in my love for fragrances. No, I am not leaving the men out.
One thing I love most is a nice smelling man. Hopefully, I can get my husband to put in his two cents about men’s fragrances because I can honestly say, his taste in fragrances is excellent. He loves Frédéric Malle, especially Musc Ravageur, Vetiver Extraordinaire, and L’eau D’hiver. Imagine how my pockets feel come birthday and anniversary time? I must admit, Frédéric Malle scents are among my favorites, as well like Carnal Flower, En Passant and Le Parfum de Therese.
Speaking of Frédéric Malle, there’s a new collection launching this month! The collection is called Perfume Portrait by Frédéric Malle. Designed to serve as a collaborative effort with experts from artistic fields such as fashion, photography and film, this collection will translate the work of extraordinary individuals, with whom Frédéric admires, into original scents – the first being a fragrance collaboration with fashion designer Dries Van Noten.
Dries Van Noten par Frédéric Malle is a modern, oriental fragrance reminiscent of classic perfumes fused with the world of Dries Van Noten. Dries Van Noten is a fragrance I’d love, especially since it is composed of notes of patchouli, musk, and bergamot along with sandalwood, vanilla and jasmine.
PRICE: 50ml Spray: $185; 100 ml Spray: $265
WHERE TO BUY: As Barneys New York was the first U.S. location to carry Frédéric Malle’s fragrances as well as the first to carry Dries Van Noten’s designs, it is fitting that that the fragrance is available exclusively at Barneys New York and barneys.com.
As always, just because this blog is to help you out and bring you better content, I’d love to hear what you’d like to see in ‘Fragrance Fridays’. I’m hoping that it becomes popular and I’m able to host a few giveaways here and there; however, that all depends on your engagement. Definitely, comment and let me know what you like or don’t like, and what you’d want to see more of.
In the past, I’ve done my ‘Favorite Scents Series’. You can check out the posts below:
