Tom Ford, Open Bouquet | Cafe Rose

CAFE ROSE Tom Ford Tom Ford, Open Bouquet | Cafe Rose
Iconic American fashion designer Tom Ford knows a thing or two about smelling good. It’s rumored that he enjoys bathing, quite often; some say even up to four times a day. Thus when a bottle of his Cafe Rose Eau de Parfum (1.7 oz, $215) recently fell into my lap (gifted) I was intrigued and pleasantly engaged. On one part questioning does Ford bath in parfum, and on the other enticed as I’m quite fond of anything that contains elements of rose. Café Rose is part of a series of four fragrances’ comprised in Jardin Noir, which are said to represent the ‘darker’ and more ‘thrilling’ side of the flowers: hyacinth, rose, lily and narcissus. Essentially three precious rose essences ballet with striking spices and coffee to make up the aromas of Café Rose. The notes unravel with saffron, black pepper and Rose de Mai at the top, and continue with middle notes of Turkish rose oil and Bulgarian rose and then finish with base notes of incense, resin, amber, sandalwood and patchouli.

Exploring the opening bouquet invites the olfactory sense into a light fresh and sugary rose smell that moves toward a large dose of white musk and smoky incense. The white musk is rather substantial initially, yet decreases over time where tiny elements of coffee and incense emerge. Overall this is not too rich of a composition; it’s well-blended, even and not overly sweet-smelling. The projection is long-lasting; I smelled remains of it the subsequent morning. Since a fragrance is reasonably one on one with your body chemistry and with any of the five senses individual recollections arrive; it is relevant to sample Cafe Rose. Perhaps one of the four Jardin Noir blooms will conjure up an individual aroma personally to suit your style.

Bonus buy: unique to Tom Ford parfum this scent is unisex; it is just ‘another’ something special to share with your lover.

Langham Place, Centrally Located Luxury with Plenty of Room

Langham Place Studio Place and Empire Studio Place with Nespresso 785x523 Langham Place, Centrally Located Luxury with Plenty of RoomNew York City post war is small scale living, hotels and apartments are usually tiny in caparison to other metropolises’. As a seasoned traveler to the Gotham City I’m accustomed to packing lightly for smaller spaces, think grandeur lobbies and quaint rooms. However on a recent jaunt at the Langham Place on 5th Avenue I was pleasantly surprised by the vastness that welcomed me. I stayed in one of the 214 guestrooms, my specific room; the Prime Place was 420 square feet. This was a hefty proportioned room with a generously large marble bathroom fitted with an immense garden-sized soaking tub and TV (which is conveniently situated within the mirror). Inside I was able to unpack and arrange my belongings sans the tight claustrophobic feeling some lodgings ration. Each room is enveloped in relaxing shades of beige and highlighted by Italian walnut and rosewood finishing’s. The beds are divine; the sleeping arrangements included well-appointed Pratesi linens. As for the in-room dining, I treated myself to dinner and breakfast; it was served in a timely fashion and absolutely delish on both occasions. Langham Place Spa 785x533 Langham Place, Centrally Located Luxury with Plenty of Room Langham Place caters to those that enjoy a one stop shop: spa (future home of Chuan Spa), Julien Farel Salon, gym, restaurant and lounge on site. The Measure Lounge entices visitors who desire small bites with an American / Brit twist, unique drinks and hosts live jazz nightly at 8 p.m. Then Ai Fiori, Alta Marea Group’s Michelin-starred space caters to those that desire a more formal foodie experience of French and Italian food. With room to stretch and a view to die for, I felt as if I were sitting on the lap of frills, the ultimate Manhattan treasure for travelers looking for space is the Langham Place on 5th; it tops my list of best five star hotels in New York City.

NARCISO: sensuality in a bottle

NARCISO EDP 2014 90 with pack CMYK A4 300dpi 785x523 NARCISO: sensuality in a bottle
As an admirer of the American fashion designer Narciso Rodriguez, I’m all ears when something fresh is buzzing via the press waves. His perfume, Narciso Rodriguez for her, is a fave of mine. For nearly ten years people often stop me on the street and ask, “What’s that fragrance,” clearly it’s evolved into my signature scent. With the debut of, NARCISO, a musky warm and sensual parfum, I am swooning, could it be his latest hit has caught my attention? Per the designer this fourth parfum concept is a shout out to Rodriguez’s namesake, “Narciso is such an uncommon name and one can’t help but think of the Greek myth of Narcissus.” Rodriguez hit the jackpot with NARCISO, the woody notes of vetiver united with gardenia and Bulgarian rose truly encapsulate womanliness. To its counterpart, Narciso Rodriguez for her, I admit the rose is a tad delicate and lighter on the nose. Is it premature to say I’m cheating on my unique scent? I confess I’ve begun layering the two, and the response from passersby is amazingly affirmative.

Ad wise Rodriguez left no stones unturned by using the Brazilian top model, Raquel Zimmermann, as the seductress who conveys this effortless glamour—she’s definitely not sore on the eyes. Playing part to the Narciso Rodriguez woman, Zimmermann characterizes joie de vivre and splendor. She mirrors images of the new-fangled container design that embodies this idea of romance and femaleness. “The stone-white color of the bottle was matched to a stone I found on the shore in Cypress on a visit to Aphrodite’s birthplace,” commented Rodriguez.

Thank you Mr. Rodriguez for making me feel like a lady each and every day. Is it valid to say I’m turning into the Narciso Queen?  Perhaps it’s a ménage à trois of the two, Narciso Rodriguez for her and NARCISO, sharing me to fashion my personal aroma.

Go ahead a see what’s in store for you. The NARCISO product range includes: eau de parfum spray (two sizes: $112/$95), scented body lotion ($54) and a musc oil parfum ($155), all sold exclusively at Bloomingdales.
