Carolina Herrera bottles her trademark chic.
Easy Luxury Carolina Herrera bottles her trademark chic.

Crisis or no crisis, choosing quality over quantity is always the way to go. Foregoing trendy for timelessly classic investment pieces is a wise choice—these are things that will pay you back in the end, either with their cost per wear value or with the durability and sophistication that only quality pieces have.

The same goes for beauty, sometimes even more so, with the emergence of many new products promising to be the best and latest. In times of beauty overload, we look to names we've trusted in the past.

Catering to a discerning clientele is Carolina Herrera. The brand's DNA of easy, feminine elegance is now bottled up in a fragrance and ready for to spray anytime one needs a chic style boost. The fresh floriental gourmand hybrid (yes, and it smells gorgeous—sweet, but full and grown-up) was conceptualized by Carolina Herrera, Jr. herself, subscribing to a 10-item creed of ideas like “Start every day feeling free to be yourself,” “No two Carolina Herrera women are the same” and “A fragrance that will accompany you wherever you are from morning until night.” Her glamorous, iconic mother, her warm, carefree upbringing and her cosmopolitan lifestyle served as inspirations for the scent, the bouquet of which is a whimsically luxurious mix of Italian bergamot, Sicilian lemon, Bulgarian rose, Sambac jasmine, praline, Sri Lankan cinnamon, suede and cashmere. The leather-encased bottle, both sturdy and tactile, punctuates the fragrance's bottom line perfectly: sexy, comfy sensuality that translates easily from day to night.
