Today’s post includes special editions from Armani, Victoria’s Secret, Jean Paul Gaultier and Repetto; plus new packaging for Juniper Ridge and Carven Vétiver; and a new travel size from Tocca.
From Armani, Sì in white: “This holiday season, experience Sì the White Edition. This limited-edition bottle embodies the same Eau de Parfum fragrance as the classic…”
A bunch of men’s fragrances have recently hit the market (what’s new? there’s no let-up!); to stay as current as possible (or start to catch up), I’m reviewing two perfumes today in one post: one fragrance I had no interest in (I’m being honest) and the other was a wild card (accent on “wild”).
