Fragrances are not expensive at all, according to Sisi, a student. "I don't care how much a scent costs me, as long as it smells great." As for cheaper scents, she tends to stay away from "all that junk. I only use soap and water and a dab of Antonia's Flowers behind the ears." Meghan Cartlin, a student, said, "I refuse to spend more than $50 for a bottle of perfume. I think the prices for cosmetics are getting higher each year." She said she prefers to drown herself in The Limited's Bath & Bodyworks products. "My all-time favorite is Sun Ripen Raspberry -- I can't leave home without it."
Vanessa, a fine arts student, claimed that the company's Sunburst Melon beats Sun Ripen, and added, "As far as I'm concerned, you don't have to spend a lot of money to smell good." Vanessa really doesn't believe in overindulging oneself in obnoxious perfumes. Brooke Elkin, when asked about her favorite scent, replied, "Dove soap and water is all I need. None of that fancy-schmancy stuff. Who needs it?"
Deneen, a model, said she wears Jil Sander No. 4, "but only when I'm feeling sexy." She doesn't care how much her favorite fragrance costs, noting, "I will pay anything."
Claudia, a student, had similar tastes. "I have been wearing Jil Sander for quite some time and I just love the way the fragrance makes me feel -- womanly and sexy."
And only on special occasions, she added, "will I pamper myself with body treatments by Sander."
"I really don't wear perfumes, but lately I've been into the fruit-scented soaps from the Body Shop," says Monica Kasbir, a retailer. "Maybe it has something to do with the weather. But what I do know is that I certainly would never spend more than $15 for a bottle of anything."
"I really enjoy pampering myself with beauty products. I'm constantly hunting for something that will make me feel great," said Elaine Singer, a photographer. "So, for me, it doesn't matter how much a fragrance costs."

For the holidays, @Burberry partnered with 20-year-old artist @blondeymccoy on a series of three outdoor murals in downtown Manhattan. The murals are McCoy’s interpretation of a Christmas eve party, the idea of charity and the spirit of family. His third mural, pictured here, is the most personal. The image depicts McCoy’s grandparents and father in London’s Trafalgar Square in the Seventies. “My work often features lots of sentimental objects.” #wwdeye

The @dior-sponsored @guggenheim international gala pre-party has a history of drawing cool-girl musical acts to serenade the crowd –– and last night was no exception. @haimtheband performed songs both new and old, and lured a star-studded audience with the likes of Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara, Mamoudou Athie and more. #wwdeye (📷: @lexieblacklock)
In a partnership between the @metopera and the @englishnationalopera, “Marnie” was born. The opera, with costumes sponsored by @mrporterlive, is an adaptation of the 1961 thriller by Winston Graham. Arianne Phillips, who created the costumes, is no rookie: She’s styled Madonna for her tours and created costumes for a myriad of films in the past. Read WWD’s interview with Phillips, where she talks about her inspiration for the opera’s costumes on WWD.com #wwdfashion
@barneysnyc took a different approach to their holiday windows this year.
