Spring Awakenings New Fragrances

Excerpts from a fragrance editorial, Spring Trio and Spring Awakenings, in The Oprah Magazine, April 2011 issue.

Spring Trio - New Fragrance Collection
Next time you're in the mood to adorn yourself, indulge in one of these fragrant gems (The Essence Collection, $85 for 3.4 ounces; bloomingdales.com) created by jewelry designer David Yurman. Try the gold Exotic Essence if you're drawn to sexy Oriental scents, the pink Delicate Essence if you like light but rich florals, or the green Fresh Essence if slightly sharper, tangier florals are your thing. Wear them one at a time, or layer them gorgeously.
