Fall is a time for new fragrances and many of the stellar new launches recall floral scents of the 1970’s reimagined for a new generation. Here is a look at some of the best new fragrances for fall.
Last week Diane von Furstenberg launched her first fragrance called Diane. The mantra for the fragrance is “Be the woman you want to be” and was kicked off by a Wrap Rally of women wearing the designer’s iconic Wrap Dress in SoHo, Union Square, Times Square and the Meatpacking District passing out ribbons scented with the fragrance.
The launch finished with Diane signing autographs at Bloomingdales surrounded by the women in the wrap dresses creating a wrap flash mob to signify the start of the brand.
