NEW PERFUMES 2019 SCENTS TO TRY THIS CHRISTMAS

YSL Beauty’s much anticipated fragrance has been a long time in the making. Master perfumers, Anne Flipo and Carlos Benaim turned a masculine scent structure into something undeniably feminine. Orange Blossom, Lavender create balance, but a spiciness comes from vanilla and amber. This has a lot of structure, kind of like a fine wine. I’m a fan. WHY YOU WILL LIKE: There is floral and spicy notes but none overwhelm the other. If you like a classic scent, this is…
