A powerful fragrance can lead to new opportunities, studies have shown that a fragrance trail will leave a heavy impact on a new job interview, date – you get the vibes. I’ve developed a passion for fragrances early, thanks to countless magazine samples that lead to my first designer fragrance purchase (probably Marc Jacobs Daisy – iconic, right?) Now that I’m in my 30’s, my theory is to invest in what makes you smell good and feel good. See our top fragrances for November below.
CHANEL – COCO NOIR Eau de Parfum Spray
Best worn at night -This fragrance is remarkable. Long-lasting, bold and creates a striking presence while leaving a mysterious scent trail behind.

Houbigant Paris was first introduced to me during NYFW last Sep, an editor at The Cut wore this scent and I was blown away! It’s nothing I’ve smelled before, its floral but woody and has an earthy tone to it. Available in full size and sets, this is the Perfect Gift for yourself if you’re looking for a new classic fragrance to invest in.
