Fall 2015 | Staff Picks

Osswwald NYC Staff Picks, Fall 2015

Asking one of us to pick a favorite product is like asking a parent to choose their favorite child. With such a large selection to choose from, we barely know where to start! Still, here are our favorite items this fall:

La Colline NativAge La Crème

“I love the La Colline NativAge La Créme and La Serum – these two products, when applied to skin, turn free radicals into water and oxygen, leaving my face moisturized, plumped, and radiant. The texture of both products is fantastic, too: soothing and luxurious without ever irritating my skin. I also can’t be without my Bellefontaine Eye Makeup Remover, as it gives my skin a fresh and toned feeling. As for fragrance, I’m currently loving Profumum Roma Meringa, which was made exclusively for Osswald! Meringa is the ultimate fall fragrance: a balmy, sweet gourmand that dries down to a warm, sensual scent reminiscent of a cashmere sweater.”

“You would think that it’d be hard for me, as the Fragrance Director, to choose a favorite amongst everything we carry at Osswald, but it isn’t: I cannot be without Roja Parfums Creation-R pour Femme. It’s a sexy, dirty rose chypre with a bit of light thanks to hyacinth, and it reminds me so much of my much beloved and long-gone L’Arte di Gucci. I’m also really thrilled by our new exclusive fragrance from Chabaud, Nectar des Fleurs for Osswald. It’s a creamy, voluptuous floral that never fails to illicit an appreciative smile from my boyfriend. Oh, and I can’t forget my face – I’m a huge fan of ‘Instagram brows’ but I prefer to get them naturally rather than by overdrawing them, so I use M2Beaute Eyebrow Renewing Serum to give me the Cara Delevingne brows of my dreams!”

Valmont Hydra 3 Regenetic Serum and the La Colline Cellular Vital Eye Mask

“Everyone here can tell you that I’m coated in about ten layers of product a day – and always different products – but the two I always return to are the Valmont Hydra 3 Regenetic Serum and the La Colline Cellular Vital Eye Mask. The Valmont serum encourages the resynthesis of hyaluronic acid in the skin, restoring its moisture barrier without ever feeling too heavy or greasy on the skin. The La Colline mask is a savior for those mornings where I’m dark and puffy since it hydrates and decongests the delicate under eye skin.  As for fragrance, I fall in and out of love with something new each day, but lately I’ve been reaching for Moresque Parfums Nero Rand more and more.”

L’Elixier des Glacier, Teint Precieux Votre Visage“I love Valmont L’Elixier des Glacier, Teint Precieux Votre Visage foundation because, although my skin is sensitive and oily, it provides excellent and lasting coverage without irritating it - and it has anti-aging benefits, too! My beloved summertime fragrance is Profumum Roma Acqua di Sale; when I wear it I feel like I’m on an endless beach vacation, bathed in a fresh and salty sea breeze. But now that it’s fall, my newest fragrance discovery is Atelier des Ors Aube Rubis!”

Parfumerie Generale 08 Intrigant Patchouli “I’ve been wearing Parfumerie Generale 08 Intrigant Patchouli for years now! I think Pierre Guillaume is a genius: this fragrance is spicy and sexy and I get constant compliments on it. If I had to choose something else to wear, though, I’d go with my new favorites AJ Arabia Black IV (so unique and mysterious!) and Atelier des Ors Lune Feline (so cozy and beautiful!).”

Stephane Humbert Lucas 777 Khol de Bahrein “I just can’t get enough of Stephane Humbert Lucas 777 Khol de Bahrein; it’s a powdery, sexy amber with a devastatingly addictive drydown. Usually, I don’t go for fruity perfumes, but M. Micallef Mon Parfum is a perfectly balanced blend of tangerine, passionfruit, vanilla, and musk that just sings on my skin. Lastly, I’ve been also been reaching for Le Premier Parfum from By Coolife. I love how this sexy, edgy perfume also manages to be both warm and comforting.”
