Sweet (scented) Nothings

Inspired by a spread in Nylon's style issue, here are my picks for most-coveted designer fragrances.

Hermès Kelly Caleche

As you read these, keep in mind that I can't afford any of these, but am most certainly saving up for them, and coveting them in the meantime. Okay, this perfume, besides being in a beautiful bottle worthy of any vanity, has a the smell of leather about it, mixed with some floweriness. A smell inspired by a bag inspired by Grace Kelly? Oh, honey it doesn't get much classier than that.

Chanel No. 5

So the scent has been a little updated, but it still has that quality that has made it so rosey and timeless. Even the designer-shunning beauty editors of O Magazine couldn't keep their hands off of it. Coco Chanel, my classy quilted black hat is off to you.

Marc Jacobs Daisy

This scent is inspired by youth and the innocence of teenage years and all that lovely sweet-scented jazz. If you can afford it, head over to the nearest Bloomingdale's asap. And if you're on the middle class side of the spectrum such as myself, feel free to daydream.

L.A.M.B. by Gwen Stefani

As far as stars-turned-designers go, Gwen Stefani is okay in my book. She's gorgeous and not afraid to take fashion risks. And her perfume? I want to bathe in it. I smelled it at Macy's the other day and experienced Nirvana. Kudos, Gwen.
