For a number of years, I reviewed some of the newest Caron fragrance on the Advice Sisters Web Site on my What Works Beauty, Cosmetics & Fashion review column . The fragrances were all quite distinctive, and the actual perfumes are housed in elegant flacons (works of elegant art that can be refilled from astounding, tall, elegant urns of fragrance, at places like Phyto Universe near Bloomingdale’s in NYC or at a Caron boutique in Paris). But when you purchase an Caron Eau de Toilette in a (natural) spray bottle, one thing is constant: the iconic, “polka-dot: bottle with shiny, gold, fluted cap. It feels sensual and special in your hand, somewhat reminiscent in it’s look, to a Rubenesque-woman’s body.
Valentine’s Day is nearly here. You can go with a pretty but predictable fruity floral, but what better way to win a woman’s heart, than with a fragrance that says: “Love Me” and smells sensual and exciting? You can splurge on the bottle, which looks like a sun drop with a gold and blue crown, or get the $85 50ml EDT Spray version in the iconic, polka-dot bottle, available at the Caron Paris Boutique in New York, Bergdorf Goodman, Henri Bendel, select Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue stores. Whether your’e asking for love, or hoping to give your heart to someone special, Aimez Moi is a way to make a romantic, confident impression. You are sure to get a “Bien Sur” (‘YES!”)
