Jo Malone London Wisteria & Lavender
Purple is the colour of royalty, and it’s quite appropriate for the latest release from the famed Jo Malone London fragrance house, which is nothing short of divine. Part of the Lavenderland collection (the other fragrances in the collection are the crisp Silver Birch & Lavender, and the earthy Lavender & Coriander – pricing per below), the Lavender & Wisteria perfectly captures the image of Wisteria cascading down a classic English house into a garden of Lavender. The aromatic floral notes of Lavender, sweet Wisteria, and powdery Heliotrope combine for a regal scented delight, whilst the addition of White Musk cocoons the fragrance in a soft, delicate finish. Wear on its own, or pair it with the Jo Malone London Peony and Blush Suede for a dainty, yet sensual floral combination. Lavender & Wisteria Cologne 30ml RRP $99.00. The collection also includes a Lavender & Musk Pillow Mist 45ml RRP $60.00, a Lavender & Musk Diffuser 165ml RRP $127.00, and an online exclusive Lavenderland Travel Pouch RRP $210.00.
Dior Miss Doir Rose n’Roses EDT
A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, and the Dior Miss Dior Rose n’Roses, as the name suggests, is a rose lovers heaven. The energetic floral fragrance bursts forth with energy, with top notes of Damascus and Grasse Roses (grown in the south of France), Bergamot and Mandarin, and Geranium Essence. The heart note is a further burst of Grasse Rose, whilst the base note of White Musk gives the fragrance a burst of brightness and light. The pink hued Miss Dior Rose n’Roses is the perfect antidote to these dreary times, and don’t be fooled by the Miss Dior branding – it’s perfect for mature noses too. Miss Dior Rose n’Roses EDT 100ml RRP $198.00. Also available in 50ml.
The stunning rainbow hued bottle is enough to make you want to buy the Missoni EDT scent, yet the floral/fruity/aromatic woody fragrance inside is something special. Top notes of Bergamot, Lemon, Citron and Pear give the fragrance a zesty energy, whilst heart notes of Mahalia, Sambac Jasmine and Petalia introduce the sweet floral element of the scent. Base notes of Sandalwood, Tonka bean and Ambroxan give the scent a long-lasting aromatic warmth. Missoni EDP 100ml RRP $150.00.
Aerin Wild Geranium
The scent of Aerin Wild Geranium captures perfectly, the memory of walking through a field of wildflowers (doesn’t that sound wonderful right about now). Notes of fresh cut Geranium, spicy Pink Pepper, and zesty Winter Lemon lead you on a floral adventure, whilst notes of dewy Narcisse, Orange Flower Petals, Rose Centifolia and decadent Tuberose Absolue give the fragrance a rich warmth and depth. You may not be going outside much at the moment, but this scent allows you to dream. Aerin Wild Geranium EDP 50ml RRP $180.00.
