Perfect Fragrances for Springby Caroline Elie
published March 20, 2013
We get down to the olfactory task
Spring’s knocking at our door. As our skirt hems are getting shorter, we’re revamping our beauty routines, and running to the fragrance counter to treat ourselves to a new scent. Since our perfumes help define our personalities, as well as our style, it goes without saying that we place great importance on the selection process. And since it’s the season of love, we’ll make sure to choose a scent our many suitors won’t likely forget.
For the smoky-eyed seductress in a LBD
