New Fragrance For Fall
You know the jewelry. Fairly pricey, but sophisticated and capable of every day wear as
well as a trip to a gala. Well, it sounds crazy, but the perfume captures the same essence.
It starts out a little strong (floral with gardenia under tones), but with a little time,
the perfume morphs into quiet luxury with great staying power.
Available at Neiman Marcus and everywhere else fine perfumes are sold. Prices start at $75.
