Dolce & Gabbana The One Eau de Toilette

Dolce & Gabbana The One Eau de Toilette


The One Eau de Toilette ($100; 3.3oz; macys.com) is new by Dolce & Gabbana and a beautiful feminine, oriental-floral fragrance that is perfect for the transitional weather. The bottle design is gorgeous and the fragrance has notes of Lychee, Mandarin Orange,White Peach, Bergamot Blossom, Lily, Orange Blossom, Ylag-Ylang, Vanilla, Vetiver and Musk. Its a fabulous scent, not quite heavy so as to call it a fall-winter scent,yet not too light, so perfect for this time of the year. The opening is light, very fruity floral and crisp. I get a lot of the Lily, Bergamot and White Peach at the first spritz. The fragrance turns a bit sweeter as it dries down, while the musk, vanilla and vetiver keep it soft and sensual. The floral notes linger through the fragrance and I can get a whiff of the Orange Blossom now and again which is beautiful. It feels like a well rounded, sophisticated and grown up scent without leaning too sweet. I would wear this all through the year and particularly now as the weather is starting to cool down a little bit.

Jurlique Herbal Recovery Advanced Day Cream


Jurlique Herbal Recovery Advanced Day Cream

The Herbal Recovery Advanced Day Cream ($60; jurlique.com) is new from Jurlique and the latest addition to the Herbal Recovery line. This is a day cream that features a blend of 18 botanicals and is great for your 30’s or for anyone that needs a radiance and moisture boost. It is quite strongly scented though, in a nice way and comes with a neat little spatula since its packaged in a jar. Its a weighty glass jar and the product itself is quite a lovely, rich cream that that sinks in instantly and won’t leave a residue. I also think its a great base for makeup and is also really nice as a night cream, still light enough to wear during the day. I use this one almost everyday now and think it has made my skin pretty soft and plump overtime. If you are looking for a really luxurious, very hydrating moisturizer for the day that won’t feel heavy or greasy, this is a fantastic one to try!

Elemis x Misha Noono Luxury Travel Essentials For Him

Elemis x Misha Noono Luxury Travel Essentials For Him


The Elemis x Misha Noono Luxury Travel Essentials For Him ($62.50; elemis.com) is a six piece travel essentials kit for men featuring some of Elemis’ best sellers for skin and body tucked into a Misha Noono designed bag . The kit comes with deluxe sizes of the Skin Soothe Shave Gel, Deep Cleanse Facial Wash, Daily Moisture Boost, Sharp Shower Body Wash and Instant Refreshing Gel. The bag is super roomy just like the women’s version and fits a ton. My husband absolutely loves every product in this kit. The Deep Cleanse Facial Wash and Daily Moisture Boost go so well with each other since the facial wash is deep cleansing and the moisture boost is a lightweight, yet powerful moisturizer. The Sharp Shower Body Wash is very aromatic and the Refreshing Gel is perfect on sore muscles after a long day. The Skin Soothe Shave Gel is a basic, gentle shave gel in a handy travel size. I love how Elemis included a good mix of skin and body care for men since many brands only do one or the other. Overall, great travel friendly kit, very well packaged that also makes for a great gift!
