Five Scents You Should Love this Season!!!

Posted on by Icy Twan in LATEST | Comments Off on Five Scents You Should Love this Season!!!

Are you still wearing Daisy by Marc Jacobs from last Spring? Have you found your superchic “winter scent,” yet? WE HAVE!

As the seasons change so should your fragrances. In the winter, fragrances are harder to enjoy- –meaning you will need to wear scents with more BOOM, but do it tastefully! Bold scents are best when it’s cold outside. Scents like musk, dark spices, warm-tropical fruits sweet woods, vanilla and floral notes stands out, whereas, at the same time infuses the senses with a great impact. Winter scents should always be sensual, warm, sweet and earthy—the warmer the fragrance, the more intriguing.

Below, are my pro-picks of fashionable fragrances; tested and approved!!! Which one is your favorite winter scent?

CoCo Mademoiselle by Chanel


 

CoCo’s Mademoiselle is a warm-floral scent. It is infused with calming jasmine, rose petals and bergamont which is calmed on a woody-sweet background. Also, the sweet and intoxicating notes makes this fragrance long-lasting and sensually qualitative. A classic! I reccommend this scent to be paired with an evening ensemble. The woodsy-base of CoCo’s Mademoiselle is simple, elegant and timeless. This scent is perfect for the winter because it pierces the air with it’s warm and bold notes. Mere indulgence!!

Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf

Flowerbomb is an explosion of florals. The evocative notes completely awakens the senses– -mesmerizing everyone that comes in contact with you. This fragrance is infused with sambac jasmine, centifolia rose, fressia bloom and a base of patchouli. All notes together brings forth a warm embrace. It leaves the impression of one who has class and that is full of life!! Flowerbomb this winter, should be paired with your chunky knits and sheer ensembles— feminine and romantic as the scent. Why is this scent perfect for winter? It’s perfect because it warms the air with heart notes of oriental florals!

Burberry by Burberry

Burberry is classified as classic floral, yet warm. It’s scent invigorates in the crisp winter air beautifully! This scent can be worn with warmest of cottons to the best of linen—a very universal scent. It posses a blend of amber, apricot, sandlewood, cedar and musk. One spray onto the skin brings forth heart notes of a sensual warmth; a favorite amongst all fashionistas!! Burberry is a winter favorite now and always will be because of it simple and classic intoxicating based woods. A winter love thing!

WOMANITY by Thierry Mugler

Womanity is truly a sophisticated scent. It has decadence blends of citrus and musks. Infused with top notes of fig—you will definitely appear edible due to the heart notes of cavier. Fish smells, never!! This subtle ans sexy scent is to die. It encompasses energy and tenderness which invokes a high spark of interest in wearing. To spray it is to love it! Any girl who wears this scent will ring the alarm of any gents’ senses when she enters the room—an instant match he’ll think. Womanity is an acquired but lovable scent. Top notes may run you away but the heart notes will bring you running back to indulge into it. An emotion revoker it is. I would wear this scent in the evening with the body wrapped in cashmere. The warm musky background of this fragrance makes it a winter staple.

Gucci by Gucci

Gucci is a lovable warm scent. Spray at first sight—you’re hooked!!! Opening your senses with a burst of fruit, then mellowing down with a hint of orange blossom and tahitian tiare at the center of the scent, you feel a warmth. It has an initial sweetness when it’s sprayed on the skin. The top notes are of spices, creamy rose, amber and patchouli. Gucci, when sprayed, seals the

air with pure exotics. The fragrance is best described as floral, fruity an bold. The heart notes are of beautiful flowers; very delicate. It suits the dark months of winter perfectly due to the enhancement of its notes combined. Gucci is suitable for any ensemble, occasion and time of day. If you’re a love of beauty, you will adore this scent. One sniff of this fragrance you wont forget it!

I Give—FIVE SCENTS YOU WILL LOVE!!!!

Posted on by Icy Twan in LATEST | Comments Off on Tom Ford Speaks on Roots as a Perfectionist, His Transition and Fashion

Fashion design icon Tom Ford’s origins of obsessing over design details started when he was just a young boy. Go inside the creative mind and see the manual deconstruction that spearheads his design process I love that the Oprah network is showing how much hard word these designers put in today for there collections In the video below he shows how much of a genius he is when creating his famous blazers. When creating the collection your colors and everything should be in place and inspiration should make sense. He talks being an kid and knowing he was gonna be an designer from there. Tom being the head designer for Gucci all sparked all his success and of course the degree from Parson NY. Check out the video below
