Five Fragrances for the Fresh New Year
Leave a lasting impression before you even utter a word with a fabulous new scent. It’s 2012! No matter what your resolutions consist of, a new man, a new job, a new look? A new year calls for a new fragrance.
A signature scent is essential for every woman. It provides a boast of confidence, an aura of sophistication, and a dash of sexy. Check out my five top recommendations to switch your scent up for the new year:
Michael Kors “Gold”
Give yourself a touch of glamour with Michael Kors’ fragrance called “Gold”. Gold has notes of tuberose, freesia, magnolia, violet, peppery peony, and ambergris. The combination of the flowery scents along with the ambergris gives this fragrance a luxurious feel and would be great for a night out on the town.
While the Sugar lip treatments have become very popular over the past couple of months, the fragrance deserves just as much shine. Sugar is for the girl who just wants a fresh, clean, non-overpowering everyday scent that can carry from going to work to shopping at the mall. The fragrance is a combination of citrus notes with a warm base. It’s lemon scent will make you feel fresh out of the shower no matter what time of the day it is.
Marc Jacobs “Daisy”
This fragrance is for the young spirited woman. It contains notes of strawberry, violet leaves, ruby red grapefruit, gardenia, violet petals, jasmine petals, vanilla, and white woods. The grapefruit and wood scents especially stick out giving it a fruity feel that is curbed by a touch of masculinity provided by the fragrance’s woodiness.
Also, there is a tamer version of this scent called “Daisy Eau So Fresh” which has less of a wood scent with more fruity additives like raspberry, pear, and apple blossoms. It’s very light, but is also one of those fragrances that just seems to make you happy when you put it on.
The Chloé scent is ultra feminine with notes of pink peony, freesia, lychee, magnolia flower, lily of the valley, and rose. Its hints of cedar wood, amber, and honey give it a classic feel. This scent is timeless.
Bottega Veneta Eau de Parfum
Inspired by the luxurious line of Bottega Veneta leather handbags and various leather goods, this fragrance seems to encapsulate the rustic scent of leather and pair it with contrasting scents of violet, jasmine, bergamot orange, and pink pepper. These combined with a hint of oak moss gives this fragrance a sense of warmth. And what’s better than a fragrance with a warm feel during this cold season? This is definitely a great choice for the new year.
And who says you have to wear the same fragrance every day? Try buying a couple new scents to rotate throughout the year. For example, wear Michael Kors “Gold” when your dressed to the nine’ for a night out at the club. Wear Fresh “Sugar” on the weekends when you’re going to lunch with your girls. Marc Jacob’s “Daisy Eau So Fresh” would be perfect for a fun date with your man. No matter which fragrance you pick, make sure it leaves a great impression that matches your personality.
