Norell New York / Navy Dress / Nude Sandals

Fragrance is created to evoke a mood and elicit a memory.  For me, the new Norell New York does both.  My mother wore the original Norell fragrance when I was very small and the scent brings back wonderful memories of happiness for me.  I am honored to partner with Norell to celebrate the fragrance’s 50th Anniversary.

Designed in 1968, by Norman Norell, the original Norell was the first fragrance by an American designer.  Mr. Norell was renowned for his translation of French Couture to his New York showrooms and revolutionized American ready-to-wear combining American ease with understated glamour.

Created with more than 200 Jasmine petals in each bottle had the most pure and luxurious ingredients.  Now, to celebrate it’s 50th anniversary, the original fragrance has been remastered to create Norell New York for today’s woman while still honoring the legacy of this iconic designer.  This new scent is a also green floral with a playful effervescence and a sensual finish.  Each bottle still contains the legendary 200 Jasmine petals.

Two additional fragrances were also created in Norman Norell’s honor: Norell Elixir and Norell Blushing. Inspired by Mr. Norell’s quote “If you’re going to go out at night, for heaven’s sake wear something that explodes and goes pow” Norell Elixir is a sexy, modern scent with notes of cool spice, white flowers and dark woods.   The recently released Norell Blushing features more than 500 petals of Damask Rose.  The elegant glass stopper is encrusted with sparkling diamante details paying homage to Mr. Norell’s legendary aesthetic.

Each of these special fragrances has an equally special presentation.  The boxes are charming and a treat themselves.  I have enjoyed wearing these fragrances for the past several weeks and it is hard to choose my favorite.  Norell New York is perfect for both day and night.  Norell Blushing has become a go-to for everyday wear and Norell Elixir for special evenings and date night.

Each of these beautiful fragrances is available exclusively at Neiman Marcus.

Color Crush: Coral

Color Crush: Coral

Lately, I’ve found myself having a color crush on coral! It is such a flattering color on all skin tones. I love that coral comes in so many shades! It can lean more pink, orange or red depending upon the fabric. You can shop all of my coral picks in my boutique!
