last week i stopped by the elizabeth arden red door spa on 5th avenue to meet fashion icon nanette lepore (why is she so much taller than me?!).
ms. lepore introduced me (along with other bloggers) to her newest fragrance, nanette by nanette lepore. the scent has top notes of pink pepper, neroli and glazed rose petals. the heart is composed of rose absolute, violet and muguet and the drydown is punctuated by amber, incense and cedarwood atlas.
the sweet florals and spicy incense are what you really notice with this scent. when asked why she choose incense to play such a prominent role in the new fragrance nanette replied, "i like the memories it invokes. i also want men, when they around you, to feel like it's a religious experience." i'll drink to that!
the new scent is $68 at sephora.com. it's also comes in my personal favorite application method, roller ball for $18.50.
