For anyone who's ever seen the movie, "Scent of a Woman", you'll remember the story of a charismatic blind man, Lieutenant Colonel Frank Slade (Al Pacino) who takes his weekend "babysitter" (Chris O'Donnell) on a series of adventures that he will never forget. One of the most memorable scenes in this movie, comes when Frank Slade enters the presence of a woman. It is truly unforgettable. Blind and ornery, Frank is immediately soothed and consumed by thoughts of tousling a woman's hair, kissing her cherry-red lips and of course inhaling the remarkable scent of this woman.
Sometimes a woman's most essential accessory outside of confidence, is her scent. It can awaken a man's senses like no other. Fragrances can be soft and light, airy and fresh or bold and confident. I've come across three essential fragrances for this Fall that are guaranteed to make a blind man see. In categorical order and ironically from least expensive to most....here are Diamond Icon's top picks for the Fall.
1) Victoria's Secret's Bombshell - Flirty, Fun and Playful -
This newly-released perfume is the perfect casual scent for your daytime affairs and casual dress at work. It is a must for your fragrance collection! The fruity combination of purple passion fruit, vanilla orchid and Shangri-la peony is sure to pleasantly arouse all who come into contact with you. (1.7 oz. - $45.00) This scent is not overpowering...just feminine and delicate. It undoubtedly lives up to its motto as it leaves you "Sexy Today. Sexy Tomorrow. Sexy Forever."
2) Dior's Miss Dior Cherie - 'Round the Clock Bliss -
Ok, ok, ok. So I've raved about this fragrance before. This scent still makes the cut as it's the perfect "Day to Night" perfume. Not much is needed to experience the timeless essence of this new interpretation of the original Dior fragrance. Like my mama always said "Just a little dab will do ya!" (1.7 oz. - $75.00 at Sephora) Dab a little for work and then dab a little for happy hour or dinner and watch as heads turn in curiosity as you walk by.
3) Prada's Prada Milano Infusion d'Iris -
If you don't purchase any of the fragrances above, you have to go out and buy this perfume. It is the ultimate attention-grabber. I literally did a triple-take as I walked through Neiman Marcus and caught a whiff of this fabulous scent. Mentioned in InStyle's September 2010 issue, it is no secret as to why this floral and delicate scent is at the top of the list and selling like crazy. (1.7 oz. - $65.00, 3.4 oz. - $85.00, 6.7 oz. - $115.00 at Neiman Marcus) Treat yourself to this glamorous infusion of fresh flowers and clean linen. You will not be disappointed!
