Fragrances I’m Loving Right Now

Tory Burch Essence of Dreams Cosmic Wood

I love trying new perfumes and today I have a holiday roundup of the fragrances I’ve been loving this holiday season. I’d love to hear about what you’re wearing right now so let me know in the comments what your go-to is!

 

Byredo Bal D’Afrique

Byredo Bal D'Afrique

Byredo Bal D’Afrique ($200 to $280) remains one of my all time unique favorites. It’s a warm creamy cozy scent I think is super unique. If you like scents that pull a little woody with an amber mix definitely check this one out. For those of you who don’t have a Byredo store or counter near you they have a few samplers you can order. Their Discovery Set ($50) has six of their best sellers and for the ultimate perfume lover La Grande Selection ($240) has 24 mini 2 ml vials. With the larger set they’ll send you a voucher for $200 to use towards

I’ve tried a few new ones this year I think are worth checking out. Here are my favorites so far.

Diptyque Holiday

Diptyque Sapin Candle Holiday 2022

You girls know how much I love Diptyque. I order their holiday candles almost every year and I think they make the best pine scents. This year their holiday candles ($48 – $84) also glow in the dark (the box does too!). Sapin (Pine Tree) is a classic and I love the packaging design this year.

Etincelles (Spark) is described as a mix of wood fire, coffee and chocolate but to me

Best Chocolate Nail Polish Colors

Sharing a roundup of some chocolate nail colors I’ve been loving this season! I’ve never received so many “what color is that?” questions about some of the shades I’ve been wearing recently. The ones that have been getting the most compliments are OPI Bonfire Serenade and Olive and June JJ.

I’ve been in a pale pink and neutral nude nail kick most of this year but love these different shades of brown for fall to winter. Here are 10 nail chocolate colors to try this fall.

Best Chocolate Nail Polish Colors

OPI Bonfire Serenade is a creamy cool-toned chocolate brown. Opaque with two coats.
