smells so glorious

My obsession with perfume and fragrant lotions and soaps began when I was 14 years old.  I would take money received from allowance, birthdays, and holidays, and head straight to my local Bath & Body Works.  I collected just about all of their scents, but my all time favorite was Cucumber Melon.

Since then, I have graduated from B&BW to a full fledged designer perfume junkie.  Now my wishlists are filled with perfume from designers such as Bvlgari (btw, I need to restock on Jasmine Noir), Missoni, Chanel, and Kate Spade (naturally!)

Currently, I’ve been wearing Gucci’s Flora scent, and so far, it’s been the perfect scent for Spring . . . but I’ve got my eyes on the next fragrance for Summer.

I was considering trying Tom Ford’s White Patchouli, which seems to be the sister fragrance to his Black Orchid and my go to fragrance in the fall of 2010, but then  . . . I came across this:

Neroli Portofino, which is a limited edition and exclusive to Neiman Marcus,  is described as citrus oils, floral notes, and amber undertones.   A must-have for summer!

bent on chris benz

There’s no denying that designer Chris Benz has an amazing eye for color and texture.  While I’ve already marveled and posted some of his Spring 2011 collection, I still find myself oohing and ahhing over that very same collection.  This time the collection is featured in an editorial in Teen Vogue and his beautiful studio provides the backdrop.  Check it out:

Oh, the soft peaches, golden yellows, cornflower blues, and ivory provide such a beautiful color story.  A perfect inspiration piece to start my day!
