It seems like Tom Ford has done it all. You know him as the stylish, former designer for Gucci and recent filmmaker, but Tom Ford has also been involved in fragrance and beauty for quite some time.
We are so excited to be carrying two of his signature fragrances, Black Orchid and White Patchouli.
The exclusive and uber-rare black orchid is the definitive note in this incredibly intoxicating scent. Your senses will then pick up aromas of deep woods, white truffle, and sensual ylang ylang. Not to mention, this fragrance is contained in a beautiful art-deco inspired bottle that will be a focal point on any nightstand.
Out of the woods and into the garden is where you’ll find the aromas contained in White Patchouli. This retro-classic fragrance was named, “Best Spicy Scent,” in Allure magazines Best of Beauty 2010. The signature ingredient is Patchouli Orpur that gives the aroma of freshly pressed patchouli leaves followed by Rose Absolute, Night Blooming Jasmine and Ambrette Seed. Ideal for romance!
Both of these fragrances retail for $95 and their sensual notes and regal packaging are something not be missed.

We're so picky about what scents we carry at b-glowing because perfume is so particular and differs vastly by individual taste. It's hard to please everyone so we try to carry fragrances that withstand stand the test of time, that's notes remain classic, sexy and always intriguing. I found this quote by fragrance expert Michael Edwards which is spot on when talking about the relationship women have with perfume...
"When women are asked why they no longer buy a certain fragrance, more often than not they answer,'because no-one seemed to notice that I was wearing it.' Fragrance is a silent conversation. Would you keep talking, if no-one replied?"Read More »
Perfume creator Sarah Horowitz is an expert on the art of seduction. Is it possible to draw somebody with a hint of the right notes? I have to admit when a man wears the right fragrance it's definitely a turn-on! When we have a an occasion that calls for it, like Valentine's Day or a romantic night out how do we know pick the right perfume or notes that guarantee you will be a master in the art of seduction?
Sarah Horowitz gave us some tips in Us Weekly magazine such as pairing a a dark dress with a rich fragrance like amber or jasmine that contain natural aphrodisiacs. If you're going on a picnic during the daytime then wear a lighter scent such as sandalwood or vanilla because it feels flirtier. She also says you can't go wrong with a "food scent" because comfort food smells increase attraction. Although I don't suggest going out and buying the latest perfume that smells like McDonalds, perfumes that do have hints of chocolate, sugar or honey can be very intoxicating.
I happen to be a big fan of Tokyo Milk Dark's Honey and the Moon for a dessert perfume and Tom Ford's Black Orchid as a perfect lady of the night aroma that will seduce any man in an instant. Sarah Horowitz, who counts Jennifer Garner as one of her many celebrity devotees has a great 'date in the park' scent called Perfect Veil Roll On Perfume Oil that recreates the smell of clean, naked skin that is subtle yet provocative.

After you've prepped your base with your favorite foundation, sweep a bit of the ILIA Multi-Stick in I Put A Spell On You over the cheekbones. This romantic tangerine shade offers a natural fresh faced flush that instantly warms up the whole complexion. Made with Vitamin E and Shea Butter, it is also very conditioning for the skin. Draw in mistletoe kisses with sultry eyes courtesy of the RMS Beauty Cream Eyeshadow in Seduce, an earthy-brown bronze that adds subtle shimmer and really makes eyes pop. Create heightened drama by lining the upper and lower eyelids with Vapour Organic Beauty's Mesmerize Eyeliner in Black and finish off by coating the lashes in the Ultimate Mascara by Becca Cosmetics.
Finally, no look is complete without some color on the lips. We love the ILIA Lipstick in Humble Me because it's the perfect nude with honey brown tones and best of all doesn't dry out lips! Add a touch of Jouer's Cosmetics Essential Lip Enhancer to the cupid's bow and middle part of bottom lip to create a heart shape that will play nicely with soft lighting.
