Sophisticated, fresh, daytime, nighttime, feminine, alluring, vibrant, strong, and intense. As the summer is unfortunately coming to its shiny end, it’s also time to switch our L’eau’s for lingering eau de toilettes and the longer lasting luxurious eau de perfumes. Procter & Gamble Prestige recently presented their collection of fragrances for upcoming fall winter 2013-2014. Known for their extensive and luxurious portfolio, I chose to highlight Boss Jour Femme by Hugo Boss and Especially Escada Elixer by Escada for upcoming season of cold.
Boss Jour Pour Femme
An Eau de Parfum inspired by the first rays of daylight, a scent embodying freshness capturing the light of day, BOSS JOUR Pour Femme created this delight to awaken our senses and kickstart our day. An subtle elegant scent bringing together a white floral blend with energetic citrus’s. Seize the day with the feeling of excitement, embrace the unknown filled with endless possibilities. A great scent for savvy business women, busy multitasking moms and for all of us on a daily basis fulfilling different roles.
The lovely Gwyneth Paltrow once again returns as the face for Boss’s newest fragrance, Boss Jour Femme.
The fragrance opens with a note of citrus freshness of grapefruit flower and lime. The heart contains notes of freesia and lily of the valley, honeysuckle is combined with the richer and muskier earth notes of white birch and creamy amber found at the bottom of this milkier EdP.
Housed in a long lean structured flacon reflecting the timeless feminine elegance of the brand. The cap reminisces of a jewel. A golden band finishes of Boss’s latest bottle design.

Especially Escada Elixer
A very exciting new and intense Eau de Parfum is introduced by the prestigious house of Escada. The new addition a powerful interpretation of the original rose-based fragrance which builds on the classic EdP and the playful light- heartiness of the more delicate EdT notes. Especially Escada Elixer captures happiness and sophistication, an Eau de Parfum for the elegant, strong and confident. Full of live, this energetic scent is for those wanting to express their love for life with a bold sophisticated statement.
Inspired by a gorgeous evening garden at dusk where rare and exquisite, deep pink-purple rose flourish as the sun sets for the night. Especially Escada Elixer embodies an enchanting scene, a place where natures miracles reside.

Especially Escada Elixir is a perfect evening perfume. Even though it is built – like many others – around the heart of a rose, this EdP differentiates itself in some many delicate ways. The intensity of this fragrance thanks its uniqueness due to the precious blend of rare ingredients sourced from around the globe. Eastern roses from Turkey add a touch of mystery while the richer natural rose extract caresses the Elixer with a deeper Oriental facet, adding depth, color and density.
Ecuadorian Ambrette seeds push the rose accords to a new intense fragrance experience, while a note of musk provides a sense of added luxury which makes it an ideal evening fragrance. Oriental notes such as natural vanilla extract from Madagascar lie at the bottom of the fragrance to add depth. Plum and prune add a touch of gourmand richness, amber notes and a special, concentrated extract of Patchouli Heart remove the earthiness that is sometimes present in Patchouli.
Escada’s luxurious new addition is housed in a robust, square glass flacon. The iconic double EE logo, originally designed by Escada founder, Margaretha Ley, adorns on the lid and is also embossed in glass on the underside of the bottle. The lid features an especially opulent luster thanks to real gold in its finish making it an elegant addition to the fragrance collection. The outer packaging takes inspiration from the design concept of ESCADA’s new flagship stores, which feature golden metal highlight walls contrasting with light modern grey glass, reflecting the contemporary elegance, cool glamour and alluring femininity of the brand’s redefined fashion direction.
Especially Escada Elixer is available as an 30ml, 50ml and 75ml Eau de Parfum. A Body Lotion and Shower Gel complement the luxurious range.
