Scent-Sational Spring Scents
Spring is just such a gorgeous time of year. The full heat of Summer hasn’t yet hit, the crisp cold weather of Winter is but a distant memory, and we are starting to see the first beautiful blooms on our Spring flowers. It’s also the time of year when beauty companies launch a range of stunning Spring fragrances – lighter scents, perfect for the warmer weather. We’ve taken a look at the new fragrances being launched this Spring, and here are our favourites (for the young, as well as the young at heart!).
Molton Brown Jasmine & Sun Rose EDT
We can’t get enough of the latest Molton Brown beauty – Jasmine and Sun Rose. The opening notes of raspberry and peach contrast exquisitely with the jasmine heart, to create a captivating feminine fragrance. Combining with the jasmine, the other heart note of osmanthus harmonises with the soft base notes of labdanum and musk for a warm, bewitching finish. The jasmine in the fragrance comes from the Nile Delta, and is harvested at dusk, to capture the peak of this intoxicating fragrance. If you love fruity florals, this is the fragrance for you. EDT 50ml RRP $88.00. Also available in Bath & Shower Gel and Body Lotion.
Michael Kors Wonderlust Eau Fresh
If only you could capture the essence of travel and adventure in a fragrance. Maybe you can. The new Michael Kors Wonderlust Eau Fresh, embodies the passion for fresh adventure and the ultimate escape. The blend of vibrant citrus (Italian bergamot, pink grapefruit), enticing florals (jasmine sambac, white peony, muguet) and the airy warmth of woods (pamplewood, sheer musk, and sandalwood) combine for a breezy, freshness that oh-so-lightly lingers throughout the day. If Spring evokes long weekends away, with the breeze in your hair, this is your fragrance. EDT 100ml RRP $155.00. Also available in 50ml.
Valentino Donna Rosa Verde
Taking its notes from an Italian palace garden, and housed in the timeless signature Valentino Donna bottle, the elegant new Valentino Donna Rosa Verde radiates freshness. Bursting with dewy green notes, the scent is lush and magnetic. Top notes of ginger, bergamot and green tea provide the scent with a zesty, fresh opening, whilst heart notes of magnolia, rose and osmanthus bring a floral femininity to the fragrance. Base notes of ambrette and mate, provide a long-lasting enveloping warmth to the fragrance. The luminous ingredients bring a sparkling, fresh new dimension to the Valentino Donna family. EDT 125ml RRP $179.00.
The new Dior fragrance, with Jennifer Lawrence as the face, is happiness in a bottle. Joy has been captured in a scent, marked by the opposing forces of enveloping softness and energy. The opening notes of zested bergamot and mandarin explode in citrusy freshness, and lend an intense energy to the fragrance. The floral middle notes of Grasse rose, in essence and absolute form, as well as intoxicating jasmine, blend with the opening notes to create a vibrant energy. The warmth of sandalwood, and the softness of musks lends the fragrance a delicate finishing touch. EDP 50ml RRP $165.00. Also available in 30ml and 100ml.
Tory Burch Nuit Azur
Channeling the allure of the Mediterranean at dusk, the impulsiveness that leads to the desire for one last swim, Tory Burch Nuit Azur perfectly captures the essence of a moonlight breeze on the Mediterranean coast. Top notes of violet leaf, fig, and Sicilian Mandarin tease your senses with a crisp energy. The intoxicating heart of pink peony, freesia, orange flower and jasmine sambac envelope you in a floral fantasy, whilst the base notes of patchouli, vetiver, musk and cedarwood finish the fragrance with a luxurious warmth – not unlike a late Summer dip in the sea. EDP 100ml RRP $200.00. Launches October 7th, 2018.
Elizabeth Arden My Fifth Avenue
The limitless possibilities, the energy, the culture and the sights that are quintessentially New York’s Fifth Avenue are captured in Elizabeth Arden’s My Fifth Avenue. The invigorating floral, blends citrus notes, musks and wood notes for a fragrant reminder of the sparkling scent of success. Top notes of lemon and mandarin combine with ozonic notes and violet leaves for a sparkling freshness. The middle notes of lotus flower and jasmine create a vibrant floral heart, whilst the base notes of musks, amber woods, orris flower and cedarwood combine to bring a delicate warmth to the fragrance. EDP 100ml RRP $82.00. Also available in 50ml.
Narciso Rodriguez Rouge
We gravitate towards a bit of colour in Spring, and with red being the colour of passion and love, the new Narciso Rouge is the perfect symbol of love and sensuality. Capturing the powers of attraction, the fragrance opens with decadent top notes of Bulgarian rose and iris, before moving into the Narciso signature heart of musk. The base notes of vivid amber, vetiver, black and white cedar and tonka combine to create a bewitching, sophisticated warmth. If you are a sensual romantic, this is the fragrance for you. EDP 90ml RRP $172.00. Also available in 50ml.
