What’s that smell? New perfumes and classic fragrances are in the air.
Perfume fragrances can be powerfully evocative—and provocative. The scents of peppermint and pine can unleash memories of holidays past, while a whiff of spicy musk can stir hidden passions. Perfumes are designed to be an invisible accessory, one that complements as much as clothing or jewelry. They speak volumes about the wearer’s personality.
Fresh and sporty, sophisticated and chic, light and floral, warm and sensual—the scent you choose makes close encounters infinitely more memorable.
