A new season means one thing – time for a new scent. And with an array of new olfactory offerings to choose from, there’s something for everyone… says Frankie Rozwadowska
The Floral: Jo Malone Peony & Blush Suede – £78, 100ml
This feminine, floral scent brings a bloom of peonies to your perfume with a bursting bouquet of petal power. Combining sensual, soft blush suede with floral notes of jasmine, rose and gillyflower and a cheeky bite of juicy red apple, it’s flirtatious, luxurious and seductive.
The Musk: AERIN Amber Musk – £85, 50ml
In the words of Aerin Lauder, “Amber Musk is a warm, inviting scent you want to wrap yourself in – like a soft cozy blanket on a cold snowy night”, and we couldn’t agree more. Creamy, comforting musk is enveloped in amber and sensual florals to create a rich, velvety scent, contrasted by a succulent burst of coconut water and delicate rose absolute. This is one sublime scent you will want to slip into this season.
The Oriental: La Perla Just Precious – £45, 50ml
Inside this beautiful bottle you will find one precious perfume. Inspired by the multiple facets of a gemstone, this is no ordinary Oriental. This is a woody, floral oriental, where top notes of mandarin, bergamot and orange blossom blend with a floral heart of jasmine and ylang-ylang to reveal a dry-down of sweet vanilla, warm amber and sensual sandalwood.
The Citrus: Shay & Blue Sicilian Lime – £55, 100ml
Hand-made and full of fragrant, natural ingredients – this is a citrus lovers dream. Sharp, sparkling and as refreshingly crisp as a citrus cocktail, it will transport you right to the salty sea air of the Mediterranean coast. A rush of lime, rosemary and masculine moss cut with a hit of salt margarita – with just one sniff you’ll be sipping one too!
The Oud: Tom Ford Oud Fleur – £140, 50ml
The latest offering from Mr. Ford celebrates all things Arabia with this ode to oud. Using the most highly regarded, precious Middle Eastern materials, rich oud and smoky birch tar create a sultry scent reminiscent of burning incense, combined with a heady blend of rich rose, patchouli and warming sandalwood. A bazaar in a bottle.
