Fragrance of the Month: January
In January, the holidays are done and over; all you want to do is hide under the covers. The temperature never seems to give you a break. There is not much to look forward to, so adding a little bit of luxury to your life makes the struggle a little easier. From the most luxurious brands, these fragrances will make you feel like you are strolling Madison Avenue.
From the house of Cartier, La Panthere ($110) musk, gardenia and tiare flower marry for a great winter fragrance. The floral notes balance with the musk for a strong, sensual, feminine scent. Everyone will be intrigued when you enter the room. Keep them mystified with this one. You may not be dripping in their diamonds, but you sure can feel like it.
He did not get where he was without understanding how everyman wants the all-American luxury. From his polo shirts to his preppy sensibility, Ralph Lauren’s Supreme Leather ($125) has you in the ski lodge, sipping hot cocoa on a the cushiest couch available. There is cardamom, nutmeg, saffron and honey. The honey smooth out the fragrance and the spices layer the intrigue.
