It’s the most wonderful time of the year — no, not the holidays (yet). It’s Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale, the annual event eagerly awaited by fashion and beauty editors like us that’s chock full of exclusive deals. These aren’t your typical 10 percent markdowns; they’re major discounts with special pricing on cult favorites and products that never go on sale.
This is arguably the best time to get your hands on Tom Ford, Dior, Diptyque, and more beloved brands. Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale never fails us. The deals are just too good to pass up, so run, don’t walk, and shop them now. There’s no code needed; just add what you want to your cart.

The first time we received this scent in the office, a group of us took a big whiff and went, Ahhhh. You hope your favorite movie star smells like this. To me, it’s woodsy and spicy, with a touch of citrus and Alexander Skarsgård in Tarzan. This set is exclusive to Nordstrom. —K.H.
