I like both of these new Eau De Parfums by AERIN because neither one smells like it should have sparkly hot pink glitter floating around inside the bottle or like it would be part of a three-piece set that includes a My Little Pony and a sheet of rainbow stickers.
Iris Meadow and Waterlily Sun do not smell like something Britney Spears might’ve sprayed on the backs of her knees while running around barefoot at a gas station in 2007. (Still lovin’ ya Brit-Brit! Keep on keepin’ on, girl.)
Basically, if you like scents that smell like something someone who totally has her sh*t together and always remembers to change the cat litter would wear (scents that don’t evoke notes of cupcakes or unicorns), give these two new scents a sniff. Both have “best friend holiday gift potential” written all over ’em.
Waterlily Sun has notes of waterlily (well…yeah), Sicilian bergamot, jasmine and musk, while Iris Meadow has notes of Mandarin, blackcurrant, iris, jasmine and cedar. Both are dewy and woodsy and fresh, and $110 for a 50-ml. bottle of Eau de Parfum. Give them a sniff one of these days you pass by an AERIN counter. They’re also available online.
P.S. What do you think about AERIN’s makeup? I think they’re a good brand for subtle pretty… Expensive, though.
New for fall, their Rose Lip Balm ($30), AERIN Weekday Palette ($70), Cool Gel Eyeliner in Essential Black ($28) and Lipgloss Gloss in Weekday ($30), all new, all available now at AERIN counters and online.
