The House of Chanel started the fragrance fashion trend in the 1920’s, when the release of Chanel No. 5 rose in popularity among all women across the globe! Throughout the years, it is no surprise that the House of Chanel continues to turn out hit fragrances that become iconic classics.
Coco Mademoiselle is an elegant, luxurious scent said to capture the “irrepressible spirit” of the young Coco Chanel. This scent is a sexy, fresh oriental, with notes of bergamot, orange, jasmine, rose, patchouli, white musk and vanilla. This fragrance is a classic and favorite among celebrities like Ashley Benson and Coco Mademoiselle spokes person Keira Knightley!
Around the corner from the House of Chanel in Paris, another iconic fashion house, Christian Dior, has been creating classic fragrances for women.
In 1947, Christian Dior was challenged to create a scent that smells like love. He formulated Miss Dior, a fragrance that is exhilarating and sensual, and exalts extreme femininity. Nothing smells more like love than flowers, and this fragrance has a blend of damask roses and Egyptian jasmine, balanced with fruity Italian mandarins, swirled with amber, enhanced with Indonesian Patchouli, and vanilla. This is a precious and elegant signature scent worn by iconic women like Marlena Dietrich, Grace Kelly and Natalie Portman.

La Collection de Grasse is named after the world perfume capital in the South of France, and combines natural extracts that gives the purest and clearest notes. Combinations include: Jasmine & Bergamot, Magnolia & Mure, Vanille & Narcisse, and The’ Vert & Bigarade. This is a collection worth exploring – the trouble is deciding which one to commit too, because you’ll want all four!

This limited edition fragrance is a fruity floral fragrance that has notes of mangosteen, jasmine, Brassia Edua Loo Orchid and vanilla.
If you can’t get the Limited Edition, try the original Beyoncé Heat, which is a blend of rare, sensual flowers like the Red Vanilla Orchid, Magnolia and Neroli mixed with peach, Almond Macaroon, Honeysuckle Nectar, crème de Musk, Sequoia Milkwood, Tonka Bean and Amber. This is definitely a sexy scent.

My favorite fall perfume is Coco Mademoiselle because it has just the right amount of spice to make it a fabulous cold weather choice. The bergamot, orange and patchouli lend just the right amount of spice and the rose, jasmine and vanilla combine with the spicy notes to make this a perfectly balanced feminine scent for when the weather turns colder.
My Favorite is Miss Dior by Christian Dior & My hubby's The scent reminds me of the romantic getaway with my hubby last fall, he commented how good it smelled and bought me gift set for christmas, WE love it ;)
