    The New Fragrance by Vince Camuto

    I first heard of Vince Camuto when I scored the perfect pair of rhinestone sandals for my best friend’s wedding online. I couldn’t believe the low price and when someone asked me if they were Jimmy Choo, I knew this designer would be one of my new faves. I was even more pleased to discover Vince Camuto goes beyond shoes and clothing. The New Fragrance by Vince Camuto is available now at The Bay. Read on to find out if this scent is for you.

    Fragrance Obsession: Bora Bora

    I know I say this all the time, but I am super in love with this new fragrance. I’m becoming a total perfume junkie these days so I told myself I’d try it out for testing purposes and that was it. But it’s just too good to let go and now my luxe scents have taken a back seat to it. All I wear these days is Bora Bora by Lise Watier.

    It’s a soft vanilla scent with hints of passionflower, jasmine and rose. It’s like a fruit cocktail straight from the islands. I hate floral perfumes — no wait, I loathe floral perfumes – because they’re usually just nasty. But this fragrance is light, flirty and super feminine. I feel like I’m on vacation with this scent.

    If you hold the bottle to your nose and close your eyes, I swear you will smell the tropics! My favourite part about this aroma? It’s a total steal. It’s currently available at Lise Watier counters, online in their new e-boutique and at Pharmaprix / Shopper’s Drug Mart for $50. And trust me, you’ll use this one to the last drop so you’ll get your money’s worth. Way less expensive than a trip to Bora Bora, no?

    Last-Minute Gift Idea: Love, Chloé

    An elegant, feminine fragrance is always the perfect indulgence for the glam gal on your holiday shopping list. For the girl who has everything and is leaving you stuck in a last-minute shopping situation, Love, Chloé may be the gift you’ve been looking for.

    Just released in October of this year, this radiant, feminine scent speaks to the spontaneous, charming and graceful woman. I’m a fan of Chloé fragrances and if you are, too, you’re sure to love this utterly chic new addition.

    This gift is definitely a luxe purchase but it’s totally worth it for someone who really deserves to be spoiled a little bit (like perhaps…you?). Love, Chloé Eau de Parfum ($90, 50mL) comes in a trendy bottle that’s inspired by the same beauty as Chloé’s leather goods. Plus, in case you don’t already know, eau de parfum’s are much more concentrated than eau de toilette fragrances. That means you only need to apply a touch of the fragrance to benefit from its beautiful aroma. It’s more expensive but will last much longer. (I like to save my eau de parfums for truly special occasions.)

    If you’re looking to purchase this seductive number for the holidays, you should head to Holts. In January, the fragrance will be available at Murale stores, as well, along with the body lotion and shower gel.

    New Fragrance: BANG by Marc Jacobs

    I’ve got another one for the boys today! This month, the talented and infamous designer Marc Jacobs is releasing his latest men’s fragrance: BANG. The spicy, woody aroma of this new fragrance is definitely a lady-magnet. It smells super masculine and just gives off a strong yet very sensual vibe.

    Guys, believe me. This is a fragrance the ladies will love on you! Ladies, you’ll want to get this scent as a gift for your man. It’s one of the best men’s fragrances I’ve smelled all year. The Eau de Toilette Spray ($69) will be available at Holt Renfrew, Shopper’s Drug Mart / Pharmaprix and The Bay starting this month and for a limited time, with the purchase of the 100ml bottle ($95), you’ll receive a free Marc Jacobs tuque. It’s a fashionable grey hat with Marc Jacobs written on the front in black lettering. (It’s very trendy.)

    I’m positive this fragrance is going to be the biggest hit of the year in terms of men’s products. Marc Jacobs has a knack for releasing only the trendiest of items so it’s no wonder this fragrance is a soon-to-be-classic.

    Fragrance Alert: Nina L’Elixir by Nina Ricci

    Last year, Ricci Ricci was one of the top fragrances of the year and it’s still one of my faves. This year, Nina Ricci is releasing yet another fabulous fragrance called Nina L’Elixir. If you love fresh, subtle scents, you’re definitely going to want to try this one out.

    I’ll pretend for a second that I’m not completely enthralled by the adorable apple-shaped bottle and tell you about the scent itself. The light and sweet aroma of the apple fruit is a very soft and unique smell. The scent is modern yet classic and above all, it’s feminine and delicate. I’m really not a fan of heavy perfumes and if you’ll notice, in any of my fragrance blog posts, you’ll see the words “feminine” and “light” every single time.

    To me, those are the most important characteristics in a fragrance. I receive lots of perfumes to test for you but I only take the time to blog about the ones I really like best and I believe you won’t regret spending your money on. If you’re not big on heavy, overpowering scents, you can take my word for it: Nina L’Elixir is amazing.

    Launching next month, Nina L’Elixir Eau de Parfum will be available at Sephora (the beauty mecca), drug stores, department stores and Holt Renfrew. Keep in mind that as opposed to eau de toilette, eau de parfums are much more potent so you don’t need to use as much. It’s a pretty wise investment if you want to have one luxe fragrance you can count on for special occasions.

    Eau de Parfum Spray 30ml $52.00, 50ml $78.00, 80ml $95.00

    The Vera Wang Princess Back-to-School Set

    I have been wearing Vera Wang Princess for the last few weeks and I just can’t get enough of it. It’s not new on the market but it’s one of the newest additions to my personal collection. What is new? The adorable Back-to-School Vera Wang Princess Set.
    For $82, you get a 50ml Eau de Toilette Spray, 75ml Satiny Body Lotion and an adorable Lip Gloss Cube, all in a clear plastic Princess tote. It’s the perfect gift for any gal who’s headed back to school. Although according to me, the perfume itself is a great gift idea for any gal any time of the year.
    What I like about this fragrance most is that it’s light. It’s not overpowering and it doesn’t have a powdery or heavy aroma. It’s really just subdued, feminine and elegant. I think it’s great for women of all ages and it’s my new obsession. I have received tons of compliments. I switch perfumes often because I test them out for the blog and sometimes in one week, I can wear a different one everyday.
    So far, whenever I have sprayed this one on, it’s been noticed by my friends and coworkers. My boyfriend has an aversion to fragrances and has asked me repeatedly to stop wearing them altogether (which I can’t bring myself to do). And even he like this one. He has not even one complaint when I sport Vera Wang Princess. So for those who are sensitive to smells, trust me, this delicate aroma may be perfect for you.
    You can pick up the adorable Back-to-School Set or the single fragrance at The Bay, Sears, Pharmaprix / Shopper’s Drug Mart, London Drugs, Jean Coutu and Sephora.

    Britney Spears is Launching a New Fragrance: Radiance

    If you’re already of fan of the Pop Princess and love her scents, you’ll be very happy to know her newest fragrance, Radiance is slated to hit stores in late September! I know it’s a log way off for the blogosphere but I wanted to be the first to share the news with all you Britney fans.

    If not for anything else, I’d buy this fragrance just to keep this rhinestone-adorned bottle on my dresser. It’s so over-the-top but I love it. The top notes of the new scent are wild berries and soft, dewy petals. Very feminine! The fragrance is also bursting with tuberose, jasmine, orange flower and iris. The delicate aromas come together to form an unforgettable and utterly irresistible scent.

    Perfume junkies may be happy to know this fragrance has a light musk scent to it as well, which really makes it oh-so-covetable. I’m generally not big on celebrity fragrances but Britney has offered up some pleasantly surprising ones in the past. I think you’ll be just as pleased with this one, if not more.

    Keep an eye out for this gorgeous and sensual fragrance around the end of September 2010 (believe it or not, it’s quickly approaching!) at The Bay, Sears and Pharmaprix/Shopper’s Drug Mart ($63 for 50 mL; $78 for 100 mL). I’ll be sure to post a reminder Tweet when the item hits stores. So if you’re not already following me on Twitter, start following!
