Review of Benefit's New Crescent Row Fragrances

You Might Want to Be Friends With Benefit

If you're a fan of Benefit's original three Crescent Row Eau de Toilettes ($36 each), you'll probably be excited to hear that the brand has released a trio of new scents to round out the line. While the originals are a bit more traditionally distributed — one's a woody fragrance, one's a floral, and one is an oriental — all three of the latest scents are more experimental florals.

The Garden of Good and Eva ($36) is described as a "citrus floral," but more accurately, it could be described as a sweetened, softened neroli. Lookin' to Rock Rita ($36) smells like an actual margarita, with lots of lime, sweetness, and even a little saltiness. It's fresh, gourmand, and light. The last of the scents, and my favorite, is So Hooked on Carmella ($36), a warm, slightly fruity vanilla. It's not complicated at all, but it smells like comfort. Which one appeals to you most?
