Tory Burch - The First FragranceFriday, August 29, 2014
You all know just how much I adore perfume. I have always felt very strongly about associating scents with memories, and generally like to take a different perfume per trip when I travel. Back in the day, I bought a new perfume every school year or each season. (Of course, those “perfumes” were more like shimmer-sprays, but they still had a scent, however short-lived.)
Tory Burch has just come out with her first fragrance and I have to say, I am positively head over heels for it. As you might have guessed, it is the epitome of her brand aesthetic: modern, colorful, classic, and unexpected.
Every time I have worn it for a night out, someone has complimented me. I already wish the bottle I had was much bigger (I’ve let my mom and sisters try it and they all want to take it for themselves). The magic of this “first fragrance” is that somehow it makes the room brighter and more beautiful with its bright and optimistic notes, like crisp grapefruit and mandarin, sweet bergamot, succulent neroli, and tangy cassis. There are also feminine floral touches like pink peony, lush tuberose, luxurious jasmine sambac, and sweet alyssum. And underneath it all are hints of warm cedar and sandalwood for depth. You only have to imagine how perfect it is for the hot days of summer. The packaging is stunning, too, with the signature Tory Burch design and also inspired by the elegant bottles on her mother’s own vanity.
There is a scented Bath and Body collection to complement the fragrance which I might have to go pick up myself :) You can find more info at ToryBurch.com/Beauty.
