Trending For Fall: Amber Fragrance Notes with Caress

With cooler weather around the corner, it’s time to stock up on fall trends. From interesting heel shapes and velvet everything to burgundy lips and glossy eyelids, fall certainly has a touch of Victorian chic this year. Notes of Amber are the perfect complement to this dark and mysterious look and it’s considered one of the trendiest notes in niche perfumery for the season.

Givaudan Fragrances, the chemists behind Caress fine fragrances, is one of the first pioneers of fragrance chemistry and the creator of Ambermax®, a substantive amber woody note. Amber, a synthetic note created as a late 19th-century olfactory invention, is typically comprised of vanilla, benzoin and labdanum. These rich ingredients impart a soft warmth, a subtle sweetness and depth.



I’ve had a chance to try the 3 new Fall body wash fragrances from Caress and I really love these new scents. Check out the three new scents below.

I love this scent, it could be a perfume with the warm, sultry amber notes mingled with the Imperial Iris. Such a gorgeous scent and I love that it leaves my skin smelling great for hours.

Mystique Forever
The captivating, feminine fragrance features a sensual bouquet of rare and exquisite Imperial Iris that mingles with addictive amber to create a bold and alluring scent. Its breakthrough Fragrance Touch Technology releases bursts of these notes for up to 12 hours, captivating the senses and leaving others wanting more.

Sheer Twilight is a very exotic scent with Black Orchid and Juniper Oil on top of a golden amber base. This was not really in my wheelhouse while I found it pretty the scent was a bit overwhelming to me. My daughter did not agree and happily snatched it from my shower. So check it out you may love it as much as she does.

Sheer Twilight
Infused with the scents of Black Orchid and Juniper Oil, the scent’s sensual and mysterious black orchid is the centerpiece but it leads the way to a captivating blend of dark woods, golden amber, and exotic fruits.

Last but not least my new obsession Passionate Spell. Really the most gorgeous body wash scent I have ever tried. The Passionfruit and Fiery Orange Rose and earthy and warm and the base of vanilla and amber make it intoxicatingly good. As you can see by the half empty bottle I love it. And even better my whole bathroom smells amazing after my shower and my skin has a hint of the scent all day. I will be stocking up on this!

Passionate Spell
Infused with the notes of Passionfruit and Fiery Orange Rose, the scent opens with notes of plum and raspberry, has jasmine, rose and freesia at its heart and features a base of cedarwood, vanilla and amber.



You can purchase the new Caress scents at your local drugstore or mass retailer.

Get The Look: Kate Hudson in LORAC

Kate Hudson is known for her effortless beauty and last night was no exception! The A-lister looked radiant in a rose gold ensemble as she attended the launch of the new Tiffany & Co. store in Beverly Hills on Thursday evening. Makeup Artist Debra Ferullo trusted LORAC Cosmetics to create Kate’s bold-eye look.

“When I saw Kate’s rose gold outfit, I thought it would look beautiful with a bold eye and lots of lashes. I decided to keep the lip soft and the skin luminous. I recently came across an old photography book featuring photographer David Bailey’s work and I incorporated some of that inspiration into this look.” – Debra Ferullo, Celebrity Makeup Artist.
