Fragrance of the Month: Kate Spade and Prada

Each month the beauty examiner is going to feature two fragrances: One for the ladies, one for the guys. Check back monthly for fragrance updates to find the one that best fits your fragrance personality.

This month’s fragrances are two unique options that will get you ready for the summer, which is finally here, unofficially.

The purveyor of all things colorful, Kate Spade’s Live Colorfully ($75) captures the essence of a summer rainbow and perfectly bottles it. Orange is captured with mandarin, pink from water lily, and deep ambers layer together for a unique fragrance. It is a wonderfully light fragrance that whispers to those passing by that it is the essential summer fragrance.

For the men Prada’s Luna Rossa Extreme ($66) is a warm summer night in a bottle as the crickets wake up and hum the evening away. First you ware met with the peppery freshness of Italian Bergamot which is zesty, yet relaxing from the lavender. Then the amber has a leathery warmness mixed with fruity juniper berry. Then it is finished off with a warm vanilla that hugs you as you watch the fireflies light up the summer night sky.
