The Sparkling Scent
Transport yourself to your very own remote private island with just a spray of Tom Ford’s new summer scent. An addictive, alluring fragrance that captures that holiday feel at its heart, it lingers on skin like the sun’s rays at the end of a summer’s day. Opening with spices of pink peppercorn and cardamom, its floral core of ylang ylang, Egyptian jasmine, and tuberose is brought to life with vibrant citrus and pistachio notes. At its base, warm amber and intoxicating tonka bean combine with coconut milk to make for a creamy, dreamy scent.
The Fancy Floral
The answer to a fresh summer scent that’s not sickly sweet, Jo Malone’s limited edition ‘Nashi Blossom’ cologne brings together zesty, citrus notes of lemon with sweet apple and pear fruits and the beautiful blossoms of the nashi flower and rose. Its soft, white musky base brings a sensual creaminess without weighing it down, perfectly rounding off a fresh, floral scent to wear to your beachside brunch.
The Powdery Perfume
“With the original Narciso fragrance, I wanted to create an extremely sexy fragrance. Narciso eau de parfum ‘Poudrée’ captures femininity at its core in an even more seductive way. It is both tender and powerful and immediately addictive,” says Narciso Rodriguez of his latest fragrant fancy. If you thought powdery perfumes were old-fashioned, then this scent is sure to surprise. A blend of sensual woods, white jasmine, Bulgarian rose, and a heart of musk, it’s a modern classic that kisses the skin with a delicate, powdery veil that will stay with you all day long.
The Fresh Fragrance
If you thought this product was for cleaning your bathroom, don’t be fooled – for this is one of the newest, freshest fragrances around. Sparkling top notes of bergamot and mandarin are emphasized by exotic ylang ylang, and its floral heart of peony and osmanthus has a touch of sweetness thanks to a hint of raspberry. Clear woods, ambrox, and patchouli form the base of this crisp, clean, fresh fragrance.
