I’ll admit, I have always been drawn to pretty packaging, so naturally Tory Burch’s first fragrance caught my attention. I love the over-sized square shape with the orange and gold metal design—so Tory! To be honest, I was expecting something overwhelming and intense but my first whiff was nothing of the sort. I smelled a burst of grapefruit and peony (the perfume also has notes of neroli, cassis, bergamot, tuberose, jasmine sambac, vetiver, and sandalwood), making it a refreshing floral scent that’s equal parts sweet and playful but polished. I live by the philosophy, “you’re never fully dressed without your perfume,” so lately Tory Burch Eau De Parfum has been my go-to. My only complaint is that it fades quickly (somewhere in the 2nd or 3rd hour), which only means I need to scoop up a mini or rollerball size version so I can stash it in my purse. Oh, and it’s fiancé approved.
Tory Burch Eau De Parfum 3.4 oz, $110; available at Neiman Marcus
