Five Sexy New Fragrances for Fall
Spray a little romantic scent on your bare skin.
Fall indicates many things: cute layered looks, snuggly sweaters, fun hats and other things. However, feeling sexy can be stifled under all those layers. How can you feel like you’re wearing a sexy summer dress in the middle of autumn? With scent of course! One whiff of these new fragrances and you’ll feel sensuous and romantic.
1. Tom Ford Violet Blond
First you see the purple box. Then you open it up and stare at an Art Deco-type glasss bottle. All curves, lines and a touch of gold. Before opening it up to sniff, you intuitively understand that this is a glamorous scent. It’s rich, heady, filled with seductive violet leaf, Italian mandarin, pink pepper that curls around suede, musk and vetiver notes. It lasts and lasts and lasts.

2. S by Shakira Eau Floral
One sniff and you’re carried away into a garden filled with sunlight and butterflies. It’s that good. The florals explodes in a burst of jasmine, heliotrope and settles in with teasing notes of blackberry, raspberry, and blueberry with end notes of musk and vanilla. Unlike a lot of fragrances that utilize vanilla, S by Shakira Eau Florale is not a sickeningly sweet scent. It’s adult and oh so sexy. You spray and sniff, spray and sniff etc., etc. Warning: It’s very addicting.
S by Shakira Eau Florale (0.5 oz, $17. 1 oz, $20, 1.7 oz $35, at Target, Wal-Mart, Kohls, Sears and Walgreen stores nationwide).
3. Eau de Nous
Eau de Nous is actually a brand new fragrance company developed by Daya and Vally Fernandez. The four scents: Bebe Breeze (fruits and oils), Citrus Charm (bright citrus summery scents), Gardenia Gift (gardenias, jasmine, orange and cloves) and Jasmine Joy (jasmine, Sandalwood, and honeysuckle) are reminiscent of their favorite childhood scents. Demi Moore has all four and uses them a lot. Other celeb fans include Rachael Leigh Cook, Hayden Panettiere, Mila Kunis and Odette Annable.
You can wear them alone or blend two to create your own signature scent.

4. Christina Aguilera Royal Desire
Okay, two confessions: I love her Christina Aguilera By Night fragrance (delish and seductive), and I was like, “Huh?” when I saw the name of this one. Just spray, sniff and enjoy. It’s a very sexy oriental scent that’s not too heavy or overpowering. It can be worn for day and night. Royal Desire’s a yummy and interesting mix of white marshmallow, blackberry, mandarin, honeysuckle, rose, lily and spicy Sandalwod, musk and cedar.

5. Lovestruck Vera Wang
You know that giddy feeling you get when you’re going on date with a guy that you really like? That’s how Lovestruck smells. It’s al flirty energy and feminine thrills. Who knew that when you blended pink guava, angelica flower, tuberose and woods together, you’d get a scent that makes you feel like you’ve just touched the hand of your crush? Long-lasting and really lovely.
