Ever wished you could smell like a hotel?

Everyone really does have their own fragrance now, Even buildings are getting a signature fragrance! I am sure its a great smelling fragrance but when will the madness stop? Maybe a the fragrance from your favorite  restaurant  or Starbucks eau de toilette?


New York – March 9, 2010 – The Plaza (, New York’s iconic hotel, recently debuted a signature fragrance collection, fittingly titled The Plaza. The collection includes an eau de parfum, a candle, and soap, all available exclusively at The Plaza Beauty at The Shops at The Plaza. The Plaza fragrance is the first perfume to be launched by The Plaza, with plans to introduce additional exclusive scents to the hotel’s fragrance collection later this year.

The fragrance was created exclusively for The Plaza by one of the world’s most celebrated perfumeries, Krigler, a 5th generation fragrance house. Krigler culled exceptional ingredients from around the world to craft the one-of-a-kind scent. The Plaza fragrance has top notes of bergamot, grapefruit, verbena heart, Texan cedar, oud, and iris, delicately balanced with undertones of amber, precious wood, and leather. The result of which is an elegant bouquet that evokes the very essence of the landmark hotel – classic, timeless and romantic.

“We looked to The Plaza’s rich history situated on Central Park and Fifth Avenue to seek inspiration,” said Kristin Franzese, Executive Vice President, Retail. “The Plaza fragrance captures a moment in time. We wanted to create a modern scent that appeals to women who share the same dreams and aspirations inspired by the romance and classicism of one of New York’s most iconic and glamorous destinations.”

The Plaza fragrance collection is available for purchase exclusively at The Plaza Beauty. The Plaza Beauty is located on the concourse level of The Shops at The Plaza. The Plaza fragrance will be available in two sizes, 1.7 ounce eau de parfum ($95.00) / 3.4 ounce eau de parfum ($140.00), as well as a candle ($65.00) and soap ($18.00).

The perfect scent for Spring- Miss Dior Cherie

In a word the new Miss Dior Cherie is pure decadence, one spray and I feel like I should be strolling the Champs Elysses or sipping champagne and people watching from a Parisian cafe. From the beautiful bottle to the authentic floral bouquet you can tell from the first spritz this fragrance is a standout.

I am quickly falling for this new scent, a perfect light a fresh floral you simply can’t get enough. A trip to Paris this Spring may not be in the cards for me (sigh) but Miss Dior Cherie is the perfect way to welcome in all the things I love about Spring.

NEW! Miss Dior Cherie Eau de Toilette

A dazzling spring floral interpretation of the classic Miss Dior Chérie, this fragrance opens with a lilting fruity note for a fresh and joyful first impression. The heart’s floral bouquet evokes the sense of a garden full of flowers. An elegant, signature base note completes the captivating essence.
