Here in New York City, the weather has officially broken out of what seemed to be a neverending cold snap, and I am loving it. The evenings and early mornings can still be a little chilly and, much to my mom’s chagrin, some parts of the state are still getting snow days! But that’s way up in the Adirondacks. I’m extra happy to be downstate at the moment dousing myself in these three floral, feminine scents.
These have been putting a little extra spring in my step since before the weather got warm.
The first one is…
Narciso Rodriguez for her Eau de Parfum ( $97 for 1.6 oz., or $124 for a 3-oz. bottle)
I’m a sucker for packaging, and this bottle is everything my little heart (or should I say my eyes?) desires. Like the scent itself, it’s feminine, it’s pink, it’s delicate — everything I secretly love while trying to retain a hardcore princess persona.
Also, can we talk about this bottle? As someone trying to expand her style into more of a sophisticated look, this bottle could not be better. It feels heavy in my hand, and that beautiful creamy pale pink? That’s the bottle, not the liquid.
I am mildly obsessed with the bottle… .
As for the fragrance, the brand describes it like this: “Radiant notes of rose petals, iris, and hints of amber, the result is a pure fragrance of soft florals and powdered musc.” The only argument I have with that is the spelling of musk. 😉 The outcome is a soft, ultra-feminine fragrance that lingers on my skin and clothes and kind of makes me feel like a woodland creature.
