Not sure about you but when it comes to fragrance, we're all about less is more. We're also in the "subtle is better than high-octane" camp. Seems like Neiman Marcus (SF) Cosmetics Manager Crystal Fink agrees. At a recent Fall Beauty event in the Union Square store, she introduced a small well-manicured army to several of her must-haves for the season. In between delicate sips of bubbly, nibbles on ballet-pink macarons and lipstick applications, Crystal grabbed a lovely little bottle and spritz, spritzed away.
The just-launched Mimosa & Cardamom fragrance by Jo Malone London seduced schnozes instantly. Its three main notes are Cardamom, Mimosa and Tonka Bean; altogether warm, spicy, bohemian and ethereal. Just yummy. The collection includes fragrance, candles, body crème, and body and hand wash. Yeah, we want them all, and so will you. The cologne comes in two sizes: 100 ml for $125 and 30ml for $65.
Remember spray softly and carry a chic stick.
