3 Distinctive Fall Fragrances

Posted on Aug. 30, 2014

The French have a certain je ne sais quoi that comes with being French (lucky ducks!). They're also famous for breeding master perfumers, so it's no surprise our Fall fragrance picks are all French scents. 

1. If you're into fresh bouquets, clean lines and are an opptimist, Carven Le Parfum is your juice. The airy blend of neroli, white hyacinth and jasmine, among other uplifting florals, doesn't try too hard. It's simply pretty without being overly recognizable.

2014 Emmys: Fashion White Out

The biggest color on the red carpet was no color -- crisp, clean, pure white. Each of the celebs in white wore styles that embodied their personalities. Plus, the white provided a beautiful canvas to show off their makeup. From Robin Wright's powerful suit to Camila Alvez's romantic gown to Julianne Hough's stunning number, the variety offered something for everyone to adore. Personally, Julianne Hough wins my best-dressed vote, but I am a bit biased. Her look was a faint reminder of the dress I wore to my rehearsal dinner, which you'll see in the last slide. And for anyone who is planning on getting married, after seeing all of this gorgeousness on the carpet, I wouldn't be surprised if we see similar looks going down the bridal runways.

Every so often there comes a new product or accessory that editors devour. Right now, it's Flash Tattoos. It's pretty impossible to not see a photo of a trendsetter showing off hers on social media.
