Technically, it’s still summer, but with the passing of Labour Day and the arrival of all things pumpkin-spiced, it’s unofficially Fall. I am not one to hang on to the last few weeks of summer and pretend like it’s still all sunshine and patios in these remaining weeks before the equinox. I embrace Fall with open arms and all of its glory – bring on the sweaters, berry lipstick, ankle booties and wool hats, baby!
With that, it’s also time to consider freshening up your fragrance for the new season. Many women have a signature scent that they stick to 365 days a year, but others like to change it up seasonally. Enter Mary Kay’s new fragrance Cityscape, both for men and women.
- Top Notes: Bergamot, Pink Pepper, Red Currant, Apricot, Violet Leaves
- Middle Notes: Phantomia Orchid Scent TREK®, Orange Flower Absolute, Peony, Florentine Orris
- Bottom Notes: Sandalwood, Damson Plum, Sustainable Vanilla Beans from Madagascar Orpur®, Angelica, Amber
It’s a really light and sweet, but balances itself out with the notes of bergamot and sandalwood to make it more womanly – definitely something you can wear everyday. The eau de parfum and shower gel are great, and can be layered to build the fragrance (layered in steps, of course). The hero product, though, is the dry oil mist. It’s a spray product you can wear on your legs, arms and even your décolletage to build the fragrance while adding a soft, silky sheen look. With everyone trying to “glow” as much as possible this season (hello there, strobing) this is a perfect way to take your scent one step further.
- Top Notes: Italian Bergamot, French Lavender, Pepper
- Middle Notes: Geranium Oil Egypt ORPUR®, Orange Flower, Whiskey Barrel Accord
- Bottom Notes: Cedarwood, Sandalwood, Patchouli Oil Indonesia ORPUR®, Vetiver, Amber, Mediterranean Rockrose
I absolutely love bergamot in a men’s fragrance. Add sandalwood, cedarwood and the whiskey barrel accord to this scent and it’s a winner in my mind. I gave these to Brad to wear and try out, and while he always tends to be a bit indifferent on fragrance, I definitely formed an opinion and love how it wears on him. Is it just me, or do men’s fragrances just always seem to work way more often? Keeping things simple is key here, so having just the cologne and body wash makes it easy for him to wear it daily and leave the house smelling fresh.
