Senseless Over Summersent
Back to the Blog... | Post Feedback | Author Bio | Printer-Friendly

If you like fresh and romantic floral fragrances, then Summersent is for you. We know that it’s certainly for us. The heady, intoxicating fragrance is a blend of Italian jasmine, Moroccan orange blossom, cassis flower, and something called genet, not to mention some other mysterious blossoms. We’re not sure what the entire mixture is, but whatever it is, it’s so dee-vine that we are going to splurge and get some. And, we also love that it comes in bottles that are daintily embellished with Swarovski crystals, all hand-applied. (Don’t think Liberace, think Harry Winston.) The parfum is available in a diminutive flaçon, in a very elegant shape, and is $150 for .3 fluid ounces; the eau de parfum is presented in a taller, more slender vial, and is $90 for 2 fluid ounces. There is also a brand-new body crème, selling for $80 for 4 ounces, and that, too, is capped with Swarovski crystals. It’s available at Takashimaya, 693 Fifth Ave. btw. 54th & 55th Sts., 212-350-0100 and 800-753-2038.
