The next days are full of celebrations and festive events for most of us. A special occasion calls for a special perfume.
Here are a few suggestions of my favorite festive fragrances to wear for the upcoming Holiday celebrations.
Parfumerie Generale Une Crime Exotique
The ultimate Christmas Scent. Spicy, warm, fruity, Un Crime Exotique is mulled wine, ginger bread and eggnog all in one.
Somber, dark and deeply elegant, Nuit de Noel is an elegant lady going to Midnight Mass in her fur coat.
Amouage Opus IV
My friend Dee’s great favorite, Opus IV smells very much of Christmas to me. Incense, spices, coziness. A warm cocoon of luxury.
Every vanilla fan will adore Vanille. Its spicy smoothness is comforting, but festive as well. Not even my mother’s Vanillekipferl (a cookie eaten in the holiday season made with vanilla and shaped like crescents) are quite that good!
Hot and spicy. Cinnamon and clove warm you up and make you smile.
Puredistance I is always, always a great bet for any important occasion. I don’t go out often, but when I do, in nine out of ten cases, I wear Puredistance I. I feel elegant, poised and perfectly at home in it. And it is simply, heartstoppingly beautiful.
Iris as dessert. A wonderfully satisfying nougat ganache with the softest iris powder mixed in to take it from edible to admirable.
A sparkly champagne of a perfume, it whirls you around the dancefloor and entertains you the entire night without ever stopping to be elegant and refined.
A deep, dark amber like a fur stole. It is warming, retro, elegant and full-bodied.
Because Shalimar is always perfect. ‘Nuff said.
What will you be wearing for celebrations with your family or friends?
