Fab Fragrances of the Moment

I’m a bit of a fragrance whore. Sure, I have my signature scents -- but given the opportunity, I play around quite a bit. So it’s no surprise that I have some new favorites to share with you! Discover the scents that have my pulse racing.

Balenciaga Paris Eau de Parfum ($50-$135 at If you’re looking for a delightfully heady floral, this is the one for you. It’s rich without feeling cloying, while violet notes give it a vintage feel. It’s definitely a scent that will catch the attention of those around you. And the cut glass bottle with cracked enamel stopper? So chic atop the vanity.

Donna Karan, Donna Karan Iris, Donna Karan Iris Eau de Parfum, eau de parfum, perfume, fragrance
Donna Karan Iris Eau de Parfum ($120 at Before trying this, I wasn’t sure whether I would like it. I had the feeling it would feel a bit too grandmothery for my taste. But a few short spritzes later and I was hooked. The iris scent is empowering without becoming overpowering ... and I love the simple cylindrical silhouette of the bottle.

D&G, D&G #6 L'Amoureux Eau de Toilette, eau de toilette, perfume, fragrance
D&G #6 L’Amoureux Eau de Toilette ($69 at From bergamot and juniper berry to cardamom and musks, this is a fragrance you won’t soon forget. It’s become my evening staple. And it’s even unisex, so you can share with your man!

Prada, Prada L'Eau Ambree, Prada L'Eau Ambree Eau de Parfum, eau de parfum, perfume, fragrancePrada L’Eau Ambree Eau de Parfum ($109 at I’m usually not a fan of amber scents, but with the balancing notes of rose de mal and cedrat, this becomes an intriguingly beautiful fragrance that I just can’t seem to get enough of. And who doesn’t want a gorgeous atomizer atop her vanity?
