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.
