BEST AUTUMN FRAGRANCES

October 22, 2015

It’s also time to transition your fragrance choices for fall. The best perfumes contain rich scents such as leather, spices, wood and amber to evoke images of leaves turning golden

BEST AUTUMN FRAGRANCES

As we change our summer outfits to new knits and boots, we make the same transition to autumn by switching out the fragrance you’ve been wearing for the past few months. Now it’s the time of the year to love scents that are warm, woody and comforting—or channel the power of positive thinking with a floral or citrus one that lets you briefly forget about the gloomy and cold weather.

Here are my favorite autumn fragrances:

MiuMiu Eau de Parfum Fall 2015 Disi Couture

MIU MIU Eau de Parfum 

The very first fragrance from Miu Miu, was a big surprise for Miu Miu fans and perfume lovers. The bottle has a gorgeous blue base (etched with the brand’s signature matelassé design) and a round red cap. Stylish femininity, youthful seduction & unconventional sophistication. A classic, yet contemporary fragrance. The Miu Miu fragrance offers a contemporary vision of the Lily of the Valley twisted with Akigalawood. The spirit of the brand is captured in a bottle: a classic with a modern age.

Tom Ford Venetian Bergamot Eau de Parfum Fall 2015 Disi Couture

TOM FORD Venetian Bergamot Eau de Parfum

Venetian Bergamot belongs to Tom Ford’s collection Private Blend, that presents a unisex edition which blends expressive pepper-based notes with exotic floral notes and creamy woody shades. With Venetian Bergamot, the sun-drenched citrus from Italy’s south, precious woods and warm spices. Bergamot’s fresh elegance is underscored and intermingled with the intriguing sensuality of Venice.

Azzedine-Alaia-Alaia-Paris-for-women-fall-2015

ALAÏA Paris Eau de Parfum

A perfect modern creation with both cool and warm notes, ALAÏA Paris Eau De Parfum opens with airy top notes for a fresh first impression.  “My perfume is not reasonable — it makes time lie. I dreamed of it like an archaeologist dreams of sculptures from antiquity lying at the bottom of the sea for millennia, sculptures of perfect bodies, matched only by the women of today — an ideal and timeless beauty.” said Alaïa. The scent is based on the contrast of cool tones, such as red pepper, and oriental, hot flavors, like musk.
Knot Eau Florale Bottega Veneta for women fall 2015 disi couture
Bottega Veneta Knot Eau Florale

New Knot is a Floral fragrance for women, with top notes of mandarin orange, neroli and lavender, middle notes are rose and peony layered with the softness of musk. The Knot Eau Florale bottle – inspired by Venetian glasswork and the traditional Italian carafe – mirrors the rounded curves and clean lines of the signature Knot flacon, now rendered in pale, frosted striated glass that lends the bottle a subtly hazy quality, like sunlight through mist. The cap, meanwhile, remains the bottle’s most distinctive design element: a gold, knot-shaped closure that recalls the closure of Bottega Veneta’s Knot clutch.
givenchy-LAtelier-Gaïac-Mystique-Fall-2015-disi-couture

GIVENCHY L’Atelier Gaïac Mystique

This fragrance is a dark, romantic allure and charismatic woody oriental. The noble, rich and voluptuous Gaïac wood with an intense, powerful and contrasted smoky scent. A charismatic and powerful olfactory material rarely interpreted by the perfumery market for an atypical and unique fragrance. Top notes of Gaiac Mystique composition place powdery iris in the first plan, by accentuating it with guaiac wood in the heart of the fragrance. Smoky-mysterious veil arises from incense in the base, blended with warm, cuddly and balmy tonka.

calvin-klein-Eternity Now For Women for women

Calvin Klein Eternity Now For Women

Calvin Klein launched a new fragrant pair Eternity Now few months ago. 27 years after the original Eternity, and the year after Eternity Night editions new flankers com out: addictive and sparkling floral for women and oriental version for men. It captures the thrill and raw emotion of new love, when two people realize that it is the beginning of forever. They come together in a moment of profound clarity where emotion transcends the physical and the sheer power of the connection is unexpected and undeniable. The heart of the fragrance blooms with a floral bouquet of peony, peach blossoms, and dewy neroli petals, leading to a drydown of a soft cashmere veil and traces of sensual ambrox and precious musk that translate the attraction and power of a beautiful love story about to unfold.

ARC DE TRIOMPHE

October 8, 2015

It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership. – Nelson Mandela

Champs-Élysées-Charles-de-Gaulle-Paris-September-Chanel-Yllka-Brada-Disi-Couture-03

Bonjour from Paris! Sometimes I feel like to write about personal experiences, or just to give you a positive motivation about life, work and other circumstances. A week ago I met a smart businesswoman, who made almost a million euros business online last year. Every entrepreneur I know considers her to be very smart and successful. But guess what?  She told me that she’s depressed.  I asked, why?, “I just haven’t taken enough time for myself lately. I’m burnt out and I feel lonely.” she said.  “Wow!” I thought. “One of the most successful people I know isn’t happy.” Continue Reading…

LOST IN PARADISE

September 15, 2015

Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.

Lost-In-Paradise-Tiara-Miramar-Beach-Hotel-Cannes-France-2015-Disi-Couture-0w

People often ask me, where I find my inspiration? The answer is always the nature. In nature I have more room to think, to day dream, to come up to ideas that you maybe would never have dreamt of. Everyone needs to pause at least once a day and spend a few moments breathing silently. I use these moments to think and consciously separate the past from the present and future. Responsibilities, obligations, unfinished business, family and friends can all survive without you while you take these moments for yourself. You deserve this time away. Everyone deserve to think peacefully, free from external pressure. No problems to solve, hands to shake, or people to please. Sometimes you need to make time for yourself, away from the busy world you live in that doesn’t make time for you.

TOUT BLANC À CANNES

September 9, 2015

This summer was all about off the shoulder crop tops, paired with a high-waisted skirts and all-white-looks

Tout-Blanc-Off-Shoulder-Top-Skirt-Yllka-Brada-Disi-Couture-12

For me this summer was everything about off-the-shoulder and high-waisted skirts, and this trend will continue this fall as well. Ending up with a sophisticated style that I have embraced in both casual and formal settings, with the right amount of sexy meets sweet, the style feels just as right for a summer soiree as it does a beachside lunch. Summer’s whites reflect a pick and mix of influences, and what really counts is the craftsmanship: fine materials and delicate cutwork elevate this kind of designs from pretty to infinitely precious.

Résumé

Everything was absolutely stunning at the Tiara Miramar Beach Hotel & Spa! Beautiful pool terrace, palm and exotic garden, sun-drenched terraces with a wonderful view, where you can have a remarkable level of privacy. The rooms are beautiful and clean, spacious and updated, but the true highlight was the amazing service. The restaurant‘s food was absolutely mind-blowing. The level of service is personal – very friendly but not intrusive. Every single staff member we met exuded warmth and sincerity. Highly recommended it and I wish to visit Tiara Miramar Beach Hotel & Spa again.
