Fragrance Review: Fan di FENDI Blossom Eau De Toilette - Smell Like A Model With This Floral Perfume

Now you can have a piece of FENDI without the hefty price tag — think the new limited-edition $1,750 Karlito fur charm that was spotted all over Fashion Week.

“Offering a new dimension of desire, Fan di FENDI Blossom ($71.00)  is a luminous floral based on the delicate Sakura Cherry Blossom. The fragrance opens on a deliciously fruity gourmand accord that blends the Japanese Nashi Pear with succulent raspberries, which leads into the heart of the fragrance — the Sakura Cherry Blossom. Fan di FENDI Blossom’s final note ends on an elegant vanilla essence with the subtlest hint of powder, resonating with the daintyness of Sakura Cherry Blossoms.”

A definite mood-lifter, this fresh fragrance is the perfect day-time scent. Wear it the office for that hint of elegance without upsetting your cubicle neighbors with an over-bearing aroma. When you spray Fan di FENDI Blossom, discover a bouquet of florals and soft notes of vanilla. As the day goes on, the scent turns slightly musky for a sexy yet light day-to-night fragrance. It shifts and adapts to your body — a luxurious scent for a lady with luxurious taste.

fan2 Fragrance Review: Fan di FENDI Blossom Eau De Toilette - Smell Like A Model With This Floral Perfume

This scent is perfect for women that enjoy a minimalist look. FENDI Blossom doesn’t give you that overbearing powder smell that spicier scents give you. It’s neither exotic nor is it specific. It’s just… lovely. Safe, soft and beautiful. A great layering scent to diffuse other fragrances with as well. Everyone is sure to love it. All of the models rocked this scent during FENDI‘s recent show! So now you can smell like a model — look at you!

  • Top Notes: Pink Peppercorns, Nashi Raspberry Accord
  • Heart Notes: Jasmine Absolute, Magnolia, Sakura Blossom Accord
  • Base Notes: Vanilla Accord, White Musk

Sexy Fall Scents 2014,15 Best-Of Fragrance Review: 4 Sexy, Musky Perfumes, Oils To Wear This Fall 2014! deadofnight, Caudalie, Elizabeth And James Nirvana, Agent Provocateur

When the cool air has us reaching for an extra layer or scarf, you’re bound to want to pile on some alluring scents as well. As much as we love our coconut body spritzes, fall is a time to get (and feel) sexy! Some of the latest scents for fall have us trying some luxurious scents in the form of  oils and aromatic combinations that will linger on our skin way after the ball drops! Read on to find out some new body oils, perfumes and brands to change up our fragrance routine!

Nirvana Black Scent 2014,15 Best-Of Fragrance Review: 4 Sexy, Musky Perfumes, Oils To Wear This Fall 2014! deadofnight, Caudalie, Elizabeth And James Nirvana, Agent Provocateur

Elizabeth and James Nirvana White & Black Perfume Oil: These alcohol-free, pure perfume oils offer a novel form of fragrance application for a more intimate experience. They are a natural extension of the Elizabeth and James Nirvana fragrance line; even Mary-Kate  Olsen boasts her adoration for oils and how they sink into skin and stay with you throughout the day. The perfume oil uses a carefully concocted base of evening primrose oil and vitamin-rich safflower oil mixed with the scent’s signature violet, sandalwood and vanilla for our moody fave, Nirvana Black. Apply to all your pulse points as it harmonizes with your body’s chemistry, or, layer it under one of your got-to Nirvana Eau de Parfums for more intensity. Available at all Sephora stores and Sephora.com.

Caudalie Agent Provoc Scents 2014,15 Best-Of Fragrance Review: 4 Sexy, Musky Perfumes, Oils To Wear This Fall 2014! deadofnight, Caudalie, Elizabeth And James Nirvana, Agent Provocateur

Parfum Divin de Caudalie: We love it when skincare aromas make us want to bottle it… We love it even more when brands receive our beauty-obsessed thought waves telepathically and go ahead and create it! For instance, Mathilde Thomas, Creator of Caudalie, along with Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier have created Parfum Divin de Caudalie. Bottling the exact scent of the Divine Oil, you can now wear it everyday on your face and body. Notes combining Bulgarian rose absolute, Moroccan rose essence, Virginia cedar, vanilla and spicy pink pepper are adorned in a gorgeous mirrored bottle, topped with a beautiful beechwood stopper. The look of the bottle seems as though it is being infused with pure gold! You’ll want to spritz this perfume all over as you dose yourself with Caudalie products… while sipping some much-needed French wine!

Agent Provocateur Fatale: The latest scent from the experts in seduction, Agent Provocateur, comes the 1940‘s-inspired scent: Fatale. She’s mysterious, seductive and charms all that brush past her. If you feel like you’re an exotic, dangerous treat then this elegantly mastered scent should belong atop your vanity. The bottle’s sharply faceted angles and planes reflect a woman’s myriad sides with an ode to Film Noir. Innocuous enough, top notes of spicy pink pepper juxtaposed with succulent mango and exotic blackcurrant cling to skin for onlookers to take notice. Once that settles, you’ll find a floral heart of heavenly gardenia, orris absolute and patchouli. What lingers behind is a sultry base of musk, vanilla and labdanum for a truly sexy aroma. Available at Saks Fifth Avenue in stores and online at Agent Provocateur boutiques.

dead of night 2014,15 Best-Of Fragrance Review: 4 Sexy, Musky Perfumes, Oils To Wear This Fall 2014! deadofnight, Caudalie, Elizabeth And James Nirvana, Agent Provocateur

New to the fragrance world is deadofnight, created by ERH1012, a new fragrance company launched by Elizabeth Gaynes, Founder & CEO, and longtime friend and model/photographer, Helena Christensen, serving as the brand’s Creative Director. This unisex perfume oil uses pure and natural oudh extract, a defining fragrance from the Middle East that has been used as incense, oil and perfume. Sourced from sustainable plantations in Boreno, this scent is unlike anything you’ve ever smelled before!

The aromatic, dark, animalistic wood resin lingers on your skin with a thick musk that later simmers to a more understated version to go with your body’s chemistry. It opens with green top notes (think of scents similar to frankincense) that are balanced with floral hints of jasmine and rose. Sandalwood, amber and white musk turn this organic fragrance into a mystical experience. The oil slowly absorbs into skin and leaves behind a unique scent all your own. A little goes a long way, so use the roller ball sparingly on your pressure points, making sure to rub excess amounts on your hair and elsewhere. Available at Harrods of London, MiN New York in a 20Ml, 10mL roll-on glass bottle and 1.25mL necklace online at www.erh1012.com.

How To Apply Fragrance: The Do’s And Don’ts To Wearing Perfume, How To Find Your Signature Scent

New to the whimsical and equally fashion-forward Marc Jacobs fragrance line comes Daisy Dream, inspired by the spirit of daisies and blue sky — Daisy Dream is Marc’s newest Dream Girl. To help us get a sense of what this light and airy floral scent is like, we enlisted the help of our dear friend, Fragrance Expert and President of Scenterprises, Inc., Sue Phillips. Read on to learn more about where this fragrance will take you!

Bottle Design

The curved glass bottle reveals the sky-blue liquid within. Highlighted with white daisies, it’s topped off with a silver cap adorned with the same white floral motif and gold daisy accents.

Notes

This is a young, feminine, airy, fruity, fresh floral fragrance that is delicate yet delectable. It evokes days of summer — free-spirited and lively with hints of elegance and mystery!

The initial impression of blackberry, fresh grapefruit and succulent pear imparts a youthful vibrancy, which warms as notes of jasmine, exotic lychee and blue wisteria emerge in the heart of the fragrance. The fragrance further reveals a medley of white woods, musks and creamy coconut water to make this one of the more distinctive fragrance offerings this season.

The gorgeous bottle on display at the launch event

Having only tried the light and airy, dreamy Eau de Toilette, it has great promise and generated compliments, but has to be applied more frequently as it fades and doesn’t have the staying power as Eau de ParfumDaisy Dream adds a sweet signature to the Marc Jacobs fragrance family with a completely original design.

Heart notes – Jasmine, Lychee, Blue Wisteria
Base notes – White Woods, Musks, Coconut Water.

How To Make Summer Last: Wear Avon Flor Alegria Fragrance With PassionFruit, Rose, Blue Iris Notes

All this talk about pre-fall makeup, hair and everything else has left us already reminiscing about summer. It technically doesn’t end until September 22nd, so is it so wrong to want to still smell like coconuts and not immediately switch to a more mysterious, musky scent? We might be slowly integrating a berry lip stain into our everyday look, but let’s relish in the last few days of summer with Avon’s latest fragrance, Flor Alegria.

Maria Sharapova Joins Avon As The Face Of New Luck Perfume Fragrance For Her & Him

For over 127 years, Avon has been creating memorable fragrances by partnering with some of Hollywood’s most-talked about ladies including Fergie, Megan Fox and now Mexican actress Kate Del Castillo. Reflecting an optimistic and bright aura, Flor Alegria will immediately put a smile on your face even before you take a whiff. The bottle’s fuschia and orange ombre design is accented with an adorable fabric flower, reminding us of one of Barbie’s more wild summer night outfits.

How To Make Summer Last: Wear Avon Flor Alegria Fragrance With PassionFruit, Rose, Blue Iris Notes

Master Perfumer Rodrigo Flores-Roux wanted to create a complimentary balance between the saturation of colors and luminosity of oranges, corals, fuschias and shocking pinks; translating those punchy and vivacious colors into an equally colorful fragrance. This non-complex formula has top notes of passion fruit, which is naturally full of water, making it an ideal fruit to be mixed with citrus-y scents like peach and pineapple; squared off with the oh-so watery watermelon.

How To Make Summer Last: Wear Avon Flor Alegria Fragrance With PassionFruit, Rose, Blue Iris Notes

Once the top notes settle, the Bulgarian rose petals possess a strong yet delicate aroma. And finally, the base note of the blue iris with its violet woodiness makes for a creamy conclusion to leave you feeling happy and uplifted. So don’t give up on summer just yet. We still have some hot days ahead to get away wearing this seasonal treat. Available at www.shop.avon.com.
