Spring is in the Air at Nordstrom – Somerset Collection
By Robere Lett, Publisher
The onset of spring always brings lots of fabulous new products, smells – and another great reason to stop by the perfume counter at Nordstrom, Somerset Collection. I always enjoy this time of year, as a walk through this space can be reminiscent of a beautiful spring garden teeming with floral fusions that delight the soul. On this resplendent afternoon, I ran into sales specialist for Kate Spade, LaVita LaVant (and yes that’s her real name).
LaVita gave me the scoop on all things Kate Spade. The beautifully designed beach tote of colorful woven strips is the “must have” carry-all for the warm weather to come, and it pairs perfectly with Kate’s latest fragrances Walk on Air and Live Colorfully.
Walk on Air was created with a mixture of soft green violet leaf, cyclamen and intoxicating jasmine sambac; with background notes of lentisque, vetiver and sensual white peach. This enchanting composite makes for a fun, sophisticated scent with contrasting facets for irresistible texture and buoyancy.
Live Colorfully speaks to bright florals, citrus and musk, shifting between top notes of sparkling mandarin, pink water lily, and star anise; middle notes of tiare flower, golden gardenia, and coconut water; with base notes of sheer amber, musk, and Tahitian vanilla.
A few steps away, but not by chance, I ran into another great sales specialist, Nawal Kassab. Nawal represents both the Viktor & Rolf and Armani fragrances.
For those who have yet to discover this rousing fragrance, Flowerbomb is a refreshing floral explosion embodied by notes of bergamot, tea, freesia, jasmine, orange blossom, orchid, rose, patchouli – here’s that exquisite garden I mentioned earlier, but in a bottle.
Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Rose Explosion (Limited Edition) Eau de Parfum is a sensual, powerful rendition of the iconic fragrance, rich with a heart of rose and boosted with the intensity of spicy saffron.
Nordstrom has an exclusive collection boasting four signature Armani scents: Eau de Nuit, Eau D’ Romes, Eau de Cedre and Eau pour Homme. On your next visit, be sure to peruse and explore these amazing scents; along with the plethora of others Nordstrom has to offer, and tell them Haute is…Magazine sent you!
