With warmer days ahead, we’re excited to shed those extra winter layers—and this includes our wardrobes as well as our skin. “The beginning of spring is great news for our skin, as the increase in temperatures and humidity is beneficial for moisture levels as well as overall healthy appearance,” says board-certified Miami dermatologist Dr. Ileana Perez-Quintairos.

Spurred on by her love of exotic locales and interest in aromatherapy, Kim Spadaro has created a line of fragrances that will break through your daily grind and transport you to faraway places. The collection, simply called Spadaro, takes us on an olfactory journey to Majorca, Marrakech and Sicily with fragrances that can be worn by both men and women.
Noche del Fuego ($155), the first scent developed by Kim, conjures up memories of a trip to Majorca, Spain, including a visit to a former 13th Century palace complete with ancient, aromatic Mediterranean gardens. This fiery number features notes of bergamot, patchouli, sandalwood, vanilla, paprika, saffron and black pepper.
We’ve heard of people, places and food inspiring fragrances, but what about a bra? Victoria’s Secret has just launched Gorgeous, a new fruity-floral scent that was inspired by the Gorgeous bra, which debuted earlier this year.
The new Gorgeous scent launched this month during an event hosted by Victoria’s Secret Angel Lindsay Ellingson on September 21. Described as “effortlessly glamorous and made to be noticed,” the fragrance features notes of strawberry, sheer jasmine, purple freesia, sandalwood and musk.
Gorgeous is available as an Eau de Parfum (1.7 oz., $49; 3.4 oz., $59), fragrance body mist (8.4 oz., $25) and fragrance lotion (8.4 oz., $20).
