NEW Designer Fragrances for Spring

NEW perfumes and fragrance accessories for spring.
Spring 2016
Spring is in the air but so are these lighter, seasonal perfume releases. To start, here are two NEW designer fragrances you should know about:

Scent your world this spring!
Perfume shouldn't stop at the pulse points. Fragrances can extend beautifully to layering via bath salts, body lotions and scented candles. Create that special aura this spring! First let's look at this new fragrance from Lanvin Paris, Eclat de Fleurs:

Eclat de Fleurs
Lanvin, Paris Eclat de Fleurs
Is a new fragrance from Lanvin, Paris. This high fashion design house was founded by Jeanne Lanvin in 1889. Her first perfume was My Sin created in 1925 and was unique and described as an animalic - aldehyde  based on Heliotrope.  Fast forward to today, Eclat de Fleurs is a more floral expression of their popular previously released, Eclat d' Arpege which came out in 1927. Actually this newer version, Eclat de Fleurs was released in 2015 but is getting a second breath for Spring Summer 2016 due to it's light, fruity/floral top and middle notes: 
Eclat de Fleurs was created by Anne Flipo and Nicolas Beaulieu. Top note is pear; middle notes are jasmine, rose and freesia; base notes are white musk and sandalwood. Available at Nordstrom, Lord & Taylor and other fine stores or online at

Frankie by Ariana Grande
Frankie by Ariana Grande, Limited Edition
Frankie is a NEW limited edition perfume,  just released earlier this year and named for Ariana's older brother. This new perfume spray, although unisex is reminiscent of Georgio Armani's "Si". Frankie's strongest top note is pink pepper which blends well with the apricot, pear and wild orchid middle notes.
Base notes for Frankie include: cedar, sandalwood and musk. It is a bit more masculine than the Armani "Si" which is a dedicated woman's fragrance. However, as I mentioned before, Frankie is a unisex perfume, made to appeal to men as well as women. You can remove the little puff charm and add it to your handbag. So posh! Available for a limited time at
Thierry Mugler's Alien Eau Extraordiaire
The first fragrance in the Alien series was simply Alien Eau de Parfum which comes in a purple glass spray bottle. The second, shown here is Alien Eau Extraordinaire and comes infused with gold shimmer offering "luminous freshness". The main notes or accords include warm amber and white floral. It has a "powdery" scent overall with citrus top notes. More suited as a warm weather fragrance but transitions well from spring to summer. See the other fragrances by Thierry Mugler at
