New Fall Frangrances..the stragglers

Designer Bestey Johnson's first fragrance has launched this fall. Johnson is famous for her bright and funky style. Her new perfume, known simply as Betsey Johnson, has a big pink cover top that dwarfs the small bottle. The scent is described as having notes of pear, freesia and praline. The clothing lines of this particular designer has a certain girlish charm about it (and a weakness for pink). Any girl's new best friend for the season.

A 1.7 ounce bottle of the eau de parfum sells for $55.

Juicy Couture has also launched its own fragrance for the fall. The scent itself is very girly, in line with the Juicy Couture aesthetic which skews toward the young and precious. The line has gone from those iconic L.A. -style tracksuits to handbags and sunglasses. But this particular fragrance is very "girly" and is "like something Barbie might wear." The perfume has top notes of watermelon, mandarin, pink passionfruit, fresh green apple, water hyacinth and crushed leaves with a heart of tuberose, wild rose and princess lily, and a drydown of vanilla, precious woods and patchouli. Juicy is pricey. The one-ounce perfume sells for $300 and a big 20-ounce jumbo bottle will run you $3,000. A bit much for something you'll probably get sick of smelling after a few months!
