DKNY Love From New York
when sample bottles of the new DKNY his and her fragrances, Love From New York, arrived at my doorstep, i was filled with a rush of excitement (more on the reason in a second). these travel-friendly fragrances are inspired by the excitement, allure, style and glamour of the city that never sleeps, and are described as vibrant, chic and sensual.
another reason for my excitement: i'm going to finally go to nyc this september for the first time (plane ticket booked and everything!), so i'm a little bit obsessed with the city right now, not to mention beyond thrilled!
ok, on with the details on these scents...
Love From New York for women is bold, yet romantic, featuring top notes of crisp, sparkling flowers and fruit (water lily, freesia, maderin, black currant), a heart of a floral bouquet (magnolia, white lily, and violet leaves), and dries down to a modern, decidedly urban warmth (sensual skin accord, blonde woods and apricot).
Love From New York for men is masculine and spirited, featuring bright, complex top notes (pomelo, clementine, bergamont, cardamom and violet leaves), refreshing and eclectic mid-notes (cilantro, geranium, water lily and white iris), and finishes with a creamy, modern movement (black suede, patchouli, driftwood and sandalwood).
while hubby wears the men's scent (he likes it a lot-- i love it), i have been intoxicated by the women's scent. i feel like it's so "me"-- bright and bold, yet romantic and feminine. it's an amazing fragrance that if you get the opportunity to smell, you should! :) find DKNY With Love From New York at duty-free airport stores, downtown duty-free stores, selected airlines, in DKNY retail stores and online at dknyfragrances.com
