Fragrance Find - Derek Lam 10 Crosby Fragrance Collection Gift Set



While I don't own any of Fashion Designer Derek Lam's clothing, I've been familiar with his chic, modern designs for a while now.

I'm always curious to see how newer designers who've decided to get into fragrance will approach their scents - and of course the packaging design.

I loved the Derek Lam 10 Crosby Fragrance Collection Gift Set for several reasons. First, there are 10 .25 oz scents included, which make this a great value.  Second, the perfume sprays are easy to pack in a travel bag, and bring to the office or gym.  And last but not least, because the fragrances are so unique, yet still very feminine with a wide range of scent influences.

With this collection you can explore all types of scent.  2am Kiss for example, has a heavy amber presence, but it's combined with a slightly "salty" gourmand note that made this one I couldn't stop sniffing on my wrists.  Another personal favorite was Something Wild, which has a sensual blend of woods and slightly sweet and warm vanilla (this one would work on men or women BTW).  Another standout is Blackout,  which has a soothing, warm, slightly spicy tea note that is really pretty.

Best of all, if you find yourself falling in love with a particular scent(s), then you can also buy the full sized version!  I love how modern, neat and organized the packaging is  - and it looks lovely on a dresser. Note: Each perfume name is printed on the front of the tube. 

All of the scents have above average longevity* (at least 6+ hours on me) and average silage/projection*.

Treat yourself to what I predict will be a soon-to-be sold out collection or order it for the fragrance lover for Valentine's Day.  - RLB
