Women know that nothing says I love you better than a beautiful bottle of perfume. Saks Fifth Avenue at the Prudential Center offers a beautiful bottle of Clive Christian Noble VII Cosmos Flower that she won’t soon forget. This feminine perfume offers a beautiful blend of sweet benzoin and caramel combined with a twist of bitter cocoa, dry amber and a touch of leather. We love the scents of fruity plum, ylang-ylang, and jasmine.Photo Credit: Saks Fifth Avenue
