Ooh la la. Houbigant Paris Launches A Beautiful New Perfume

If you’re looking for a new fragrance for fall, Houbigant, the French perfume house of European royalty and nobility should be on your radar. With a rich history that started in the 1700’s, they brought the famous Quelques Fleurs to life and are one of the oldest perfume houses still in existence. Their newest scent, Orangers en Fleurs Eau de Parfum, $180 — their first in five years and well worth the wait — is centered around the warm head notes of the orange blossom, along with notes like rose absolute, Egyptian jasmine absolute, tuburose, ylang-ylang and a base of cedarwood and a touch of musk. It’s ultra sophisticated, yet youthful too. True to the brand’s history, Orangers en Fleurs is composed of only the finest raw materials with the highest level of purity — hence the high price tag. I can tell you that when I wear this, I feel elegant and glamorous, but not overdone. I highly recommend it.

I typically choose my fragrance based on my mood. How do you choose your perfume?
