T+L Reports: Scents of Place
Published: April 2009
This season brings a fresh crop of fragrances inspired by glamorous destinations. Nina Ricci's Love in Paris (1.7-oz. eau de parfum, $50) is sexy and romantic—just like the City of Light. Shanghai (50-ml. eau de parfum, $73) fuses pineapple with a base of Chinese plum. Marc Jacobs's Blush (3.4-oz. eau de parfum, $85) also takes its cue from Paris, with hints of jasmine and wood. From rural America, there's the orange flower- and lime-scented Lauren Style (2.5-oz. eau de parfum, $47.50). And Jil Sander's Pure (1.7-oz. eau de toilette, $55) combines cyclamen and green sap to evoke her own garden outside Hamburg.
