January 9, 2017
Picking your fragrance, or perfume, can be a daunting challenge. A fragrance often alters itself based on each individuals body chemistry, or maybe it just sweetens up over the hours in the day. With the beginning of the year, we often set new goals for ourselves and decide to change our daily routines to become healthier and “fresher,” per se, in the new year. I think one aspect of this trend that is often overlooked is selecting a new fragrance for the upcoming year. So, today I wanted to discuss with you 5 Fragrances to Try in 2017, in hopes of inspiring you to think about your current fragrance option, and think if it could use a little updating!
If your anything like me, you generally stick to one fragrance and use it until the bottle is completely empty, which is not a bad thing. I think it’s important to stick to a few fragrances and not wear something completely different every single day. However, with the changing of seasons and a variety of environments we experience in throughout each year, sometimes we need to have a few different fragrances handy to ensure that we are always scented for the appropriate occasion. Something for the correct season, nothing too light or too heavy, something for work, something for date night, and well… you get the idea! Here are 5 Fragrances to Try in 2017:
Giorgio Armani Si Eau de Parfum
This new Giorgio Armani fragrance is sweet and powerful. Something that stands out as a significant, and bold, scent but is still soft and feminine. This one reminds me quite a bit of YSL Black Opium but is a bit more classier. It is transitional in the way that it would be appropriate for work, but is still sexy enough for date night. I love this one!
“Si, the new fragrance by Giorgio Armani, is a luxurious scent for the modern woman who’s strong yet feminine, sophisticated yet charismatic. It’s a modern chypre, reinvented with deep blackcurrant nectar, airy florals and musky blond wood.”
Chloé Love Story
This Chloé scent is fresh, lights and feminine. Very chic and perfect for those who don’t love a heavy scent. It’s notes of… provide youthful fragrance. Perfect for anyone trying to revive their everyday life! One of my favorites!

Passion flower comes to spread its audacious and playful femininity, and is enhanced by a sensual and enveloping complex of cedar, amber and musks. The emblematic lock flacon, a real icon of the Chloé fashion house, is adorned with a new hand-tied ribbon twisted into a sensual blush-pink shade, inspired by the house’s fashion collection. The bottle is detailed with an engraved gold metal plate and features pleated glass at the back of the bottle that shows off the new, blush-pink juice.
