Henri Bendel Launches New Signature Scents
I was a fan of the previous Henri Bendel signature line (the rare mimosa was my favorite) so I'm curious about the new line from the luxury department store Henri Bendel. Last year Henri Bendel decided to stop selling clothing and focus on accessories and beauty products. The store has launched a new line of six signature scents with very tempting scent descriptions. Rose & Oud is described as girly but glam with strawberry leaves, violet, sugary pink jasmine and a balance of oud. Gardenia & Vanilla is a a subtle and soft scent that gently seduces with peach blossoms, lily of the valley, fresh gardenia, and vanilla. A little peppier is the Persian Lime & Pepper which has notes of Rio red grapefruit, bold black pepper and sweet-scented basil. Sunny citrus enlivens Orange Blossom & Jasmine which has sugary Clementine, tangy tangerine, and bouquets of Sumatra lily. Patcchouli fleur and lotus blossoms give Incense & Musk its exotic profile.Grapefruit & Vetiver is tangy and tart but balanced by cooling cypress and mellowed musk. All the scents sell for $65 for a 50 ml Eau de Parfum.
