Scents of Style

Arielle Noa Charnas (perhaps better known to her
one million followers as @SomethingNavy) has an
incredible eye for style. Here, she shares her best tips for
incorporating fragrance into her undeniably chic world.

When we first sat down with Something Navy (yes, she has a real name, but after ten years of running her must-follow style blog, her handle has become iconic), we developed an instant girl crush. The style star we’d seen in so many street-side fashion poses was somehow also incredibly relatable and down to earth. We talked everything from family (she has two young daughters, Ruby and Esme, who are as fun to follow on Instagram as Arielle herself) to friendships (she sees herself as a girlfriend to her followers, many of whom feel like they’ve grown up with her) to, of course, fashion.

But when it comes to fashion, one often-overlooked feature is fragrance, and the final touch it can add to an outfit. Arielle confesses to never leaving home without it, citing AERIN Rose de Grasse as an all-time favorite. Now, having fallen in love with the latest AERIN offerings—the collection of Eau de Rose Colognes—Arielle shares how she incorporates scent into every aspect of her life.

Of the 3 AERIN Eau de Rose Colognes, do you have a favorite? If so, which one?
Garden Rose—I’m obsessed with it!

How do you incorporate fragrance into your routine?
I’ll do a quick spritz on my wrists before I leave for a meeting. For a date night or a night out with friends, I usually do a big spritz and walk into the mist.

Do you have any tricks or secrets to applying your fragrance?
I love to do a spritz on the tips of my hair!

Many women consider their bathrooms to be their sacred “girly” space. What is your bathroom vibe like? Do you put any of your products
on display?

I like to keep it minimal, but I love to put a few special pieces on display. I have this really beautiful crystal tray that I display my favorite perfumes on, along with a ring holder that I keep my wedding band and engagement ring on when I’m not
wearing them.
