Perfume Essentials

February 17, 2011

My greatest source of inspiration (my mom) has always been an avid perfume lover, and has made me come to appreciate them over the years. I say appreciate because like wine, perfume is something that takes great time and consideration to make before getting the right result. She has been wearing the absolutely addicting line of perfume Bond No. 9 New York for years now. With their meticulously designed bottles and enticing scents, I guarantee you’ll be hooked after just one wear. Each bottle represents an iconic part of New York and they are split into categories like Uptown, Midtown, Downtown and New York Beaches. Personally, I adore Chinatown, Astor Place (which is pictured above as I was recently gifted a sample), Chelsea Flowers and High Line. The line is rather expensive, but a little goes a long way and you’ll undoubtedly be left smelling unlike anyone else in the room.

Serge Lutens is another exquisite line that is the maker of one of my all-time favorite scents: Chergui. It just recently became available in the U.S. (before it could only be bought in Europe), but I remember when my mom and I found it in a small boutique in Italy this past summer we were ecstatic. Try looking for samples on The Perfumed Court , a wonderful website where we’re had samples of Chergui shipped to us in the past.

The entire line of Creed has been around for generations and is another timeless, classic perfume. Along with Virgin Island Water and Spring Flower (which was originally made for Audrey Hepburn), Love in White is probably my favorite from the line. It has also been worn by the past two First Ladies. With top notes of orange zest and base notes of vanilla it makes for a heavenly combination that can’t be confused with anything else.

    Creed with the vanilla sounds like the one that would smell amazing.
