Favorite Fall Fragrances

Fall is finally here! Have you picked out your favorite fragrance for the Fall season? If not,in this post you can check out a few of my favorite fall fragrance's that I will be using all season long. Picking out the perfect signature fragrance for the season can be very difficult,so to get you started check out my favorite fragrances then head to your favorite beauty store.....( or just steal your boyfriends cologne)

1.) Tom Ford, Black Orchid
If you are looking for a perfect scent that you and your man can share this Autumn, Black Orchid just might be your pick! Tom Ford Black Orchid is a scent that both men AND woman enjoy and can share. 

Bergamot, Citrus, Mandarin, Black Gardenia, Jasmine, Ylang-Ylang, Lotus Wood, Orchid, Spicy Floral Accord, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Incense, Vanilla.

2) Viktor and Rolf, Flowerbomb

The perfect flower explosion all inside one bottle. This is the perfect perfume to feel feminine  and chic all day long.

Notes: Sambac Jasmine, Centifolia Rose, Cattleya Orchid, Ballerina Freesia, Patchouli.
3) Guilty, Gucci Guilty
This scent is daring,rich and sexy all in one. This is one of my favorite fragrances EVER, and I am guaranteed to use a few spritz during the Fall season. Not only do the ingredients work seamlessly together, but the product packaging is simply perfect.

Mandarin, Pink Pepper, Peach, Lilac, Geranium, Amber, Patchouli.


4) Estee Lauder, Modern Muse
This fragrance is the New Kid on the Block but won't let anything get in it's way of being the hottest scent of the season ( or year!). This is Estee Lauder's first fragrance release in over a decade, and it is well worth the wait! This is the perfect scent with rich florals, but is light and will not smell like your Grandmother's perfume.

Gone Rogue

Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick in No.21 Rivoli 
Today I wore Chanel Rogue Coco Lipstick in No.21 Rivoli. This particular lipstick is a creme lip color that glides on seamlessly for easy application. The lipstick features Hydratendre complex which helps hydrate the lips all day (perfect for my dry lips). I typically apply EOS (Evolution of Smooth) sphere lip balm before applying lipstick, however with this particular classic Chanel lipstick it is not needed. I would highly suggest this product for someone with lips that tend to be more dry (like myself). Although the best part about this lipstick is that it applies easily, I would say that this is not a lipstick that will last ALL day. If you are looking for a product that will not require you to re-apply throughout the day, this may not be the best lipstick choice for you.

Nordstrom Beauty Trend Show

Every year Nordstrom has a Beauty Trend Show to showcase all of the latest beauty trends and products. The Trend Show is located at 20 cities around the country, and brings together beauty junkies and all of the industries top global makeup artists. This past weekend I attended the Fall Beauty Trend Show at Nordstrom downtown Chicago. The show itself is in the morning [before the store opens], then following the show all of the beauty counters have global makeup artists,free consultations and special promotions. The event was MADNESS! The event was a lot like shopping on Black Friday, and was very overwhelming. The show itself was very informational and fun, and of course the shopping was the best part!
