I know it’s still summer time in my part of the world, but the fashion industry is getting ready for the cold weather. Summer clothes are being moved to the clearance rack and coats are starting to occupy the window display. Magazine September issue, the most important fashion issue in magazine circulation, is going to be released next month. Fashion week is approaching too…new ads are coming and new fragrances are being launched. And there’s soooo many new fragrances to choose from. As it’s always been, there’s more new fragrances in the fall than in other seasons. I’m more in the mood for fragrances during the fall too I wonder why!. I’ll be sure to sniff some of these away when I visit the beauty counter.
From the Power Houses
Fendi Palazzo. The newest Fendi fragrance since 20 years ago. Karl Lagerfeld is involved in the project and he was the one who shot the ad campaign with Raquel Zimmerman as the model.

Prada Infusion d’Iris. The print ad is photographed by Steven Meisel featuring Sasha Pivovarova.

Gucci by Gucci. The first Gucci fragrance since Frida Giannini took over the reign. The beauty industry estimates that it could generate up to $100 million in sales for its first year at the counter. The ad campaign is photographed by Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matain and features Raqual Zimmerman, Freja Beha and Natasha Poly.
The smell: A rich, soulful chypre scent with exotic notes and warm florals, blend of guava and pear with a touch of sensual femininity from the creaminess Tahitian Tiare flower and sensuality from musky notes and honey and the strength of the patchouli.
