With entirely different and distinctive profiles, from subtropical to woody, our roundup of this season’s trending fragrances produce experiences unforgettable to the senses.

BRAND OF DISTINCTION
Launched in the U.S. in 1986, Honda’s marquis nameplate, Acura, was the first American Japanese automotive luxury brand, its Legend flagship model quickly motivating Toyota and Nissan to launch analogous upper tier brands Lexus and Infiniti, respectively. In its 24 years of service, Precision Acura of Princeton has managed to bag, for a remarkable 20 years in a row, the maker’s Precision Team designation an exclusive award for select dealerships that deliver outstanding client experience and operational excellence. That’s not just an ongoing plaudit, explained Drew Sciaulino, president of Precision Acura, but a testament to “a very loyal base of customers and consistent customer satisfaction. We pride ourselves on minute by minute attention to not just meeting their needs but also exceeding their expectations.” 3001 US Highway 1, precisionacura.com
