Choosing the right perfume or cologne is no simple decision. It’s about more than just what smells nice. In fact, the selected scent says volumes about what you stand for. Fragrance is it’s own language—full of olfactory colloquialisms. A sweet fragrance may allude to an uppity personality, while muskier undertones might scream sexy, daring even. And while some spend their lives in loyal companionship with one fragrance, we believe a seasonal addition to your perfume repertoire can act as sort of a scrap book, documenting memories as they occurred in the time you wore said scent. Our fall fragrance selection is a dynamic one; from Gucci and Clive Christian to Dolce & Gabbana and Hermès, the season’s new releases are here to serve you, telling your story to all who come close enough to catch a whiff.
