I Smell Pretty.....So, So Pretty!

A fashionista loves a great fragrance....
Totally smitten with Yves Saint Laurent Paris at the tender age of 8. My mom received this as a gift and from the moment I laid my eyes on it I knew this would be my signature scent. The delicate fragrance has made it's rounds with me to the Prom, to the dorms at Morgan State, special events and even the delivery room.

The diamond edged bottle was a mere representation of royalty, class and distinction to fashionistas everywhere. Mr. Laurent, an incurable romantic created Paris in 1983 and dedicated it to the city of inspiration and love.

YSL transformed the fragrance industry with his product design and luxury packaging. Today many fragrance insider's are mimicking his attention to detail and providing stellar marketing, and carefully designed packaging.

Here's a few Pretty...Pretty fragrances to add to the list.....

Branding guru & celebrity Jessica Simpson recently unveiled Fancy (her debut fragrance), developed by perfumer Alexis Dadier. The lovely pink packaging is soft, romantic & playful and let's face it, it'll look good on any dresser or boudoir.... $30-$50, Macy's

Coty, the world’s largest fragrance company, has created La Voce by Renée Fleming, in honor of Met star Renée Fleming. The launch 9/22/08 launch coincides with the Opening Night Gala of the Metropolitan Opera's 125th anniversary season, starring Fleming.

The perfume La Voce Renee Fleming is available in a very luxurious 50 ml bottle 50 for $200, presented in a limited edition. It will be sold only in exclusive locations.

Mommy & Fashionista Jenifer Lopez has struck gold with her successful line of fragrances. Launched in February 2008, it is her first fragrance to showcase her Hispanic heritage. The very first time, a bottle of a Jennifer Lopez scent offered a different shape from the usual long-necked bottles in the Glow series. The new flacon designed by JLo with the help of the Coty team is meant to represent a diamond in the rough, perhaps a statement about the future of the Hispanic community in America. $49.50-$59.50, Macy's

Fashionistas just can't seem to get enough of the Juicy Couture Brand..... Juicy has developed Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy for Juicy girls who want it all! A combination of Wild berries and Juicy Mandarin, Honey suckle, Gardenia, Jasmine, Amber, Caramel, Vanilla, Sandalwood and Praline. All boldly-goldly bottled, dangled with Juicy charms and rocked in fuchsia wrap. Yours for $65 at Macy's
