Whether you’re after a floral fragrance or a sultry nighttime scent, we’ve got the perfect pick for you. Read on to discover the five new perfumes we’re lusting after this season and shop them in our roundup, below.
The Modern Classic
Tiffany 'Eau De Parfum'
They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, and that certainly rings true with this gemstone-inspired scent from Tiffany & Co., which will definitely be your new fragrance BFF. The first-ever perfume from the luxury jewelry brand to launch in the Middle East, it’s sure to fly off the shelves – fast.
Created by world-renowned master perfumer Daniela Andrier of Givaudan, it’s a modern interpretation of a classic note: the precious and powdery iris flower. It has been a part of the Tiffany DNA since 1900, when an iris brooch won the house a grand prize at the Paris Exposition. A sparkling floral of patchouli, mandarin, iris flower, and musk, it is dazzling, and delicate – just like a Tiffany jewel. The diamond-inspired glass flacon and Tiffany-blue box are just the (very pretty) icing on top.
The Unisex Scent
Ex Nihilo 'French Affair'
Unisex scents are all the rage at the moment, but they bring with them one big beauty problem: you’ll be fighting your man for them. ‘French Affair’, the stunning new olfactory offering by Ex Nihilo, is particularly appealing. Inspired by the free thinkers and rule breakers of the 70s, this creation is oh-so-chic and oh-so-unexpected, bringing a touch of Parisian charm and charisma to your bottle.
Playing with the notion of gender, it magically mixes more masculine notes of vetiver, atlas cedar, and oak moss with feminine notes of lychee, rose, and angelica together with crisp bergamot and rich patchouli to make for one raw, slightly spicy, and intoxicating addition to your fragrance wardrobe.
The Oriental Offering
Floraïku 'I am Coming Home'
Transport yourself to the Orient with the exotic fragrances from Floraïku. Inspired by the rituals and haikus of Japan, and made with more than 50 percent natural ingredients, each has a story to tell and is adorned with exquisite and unique artwork by Victoire Cathalan.
Be sure to check the back of your beautiful bottle, too, where you’ll find an engraved poem that perfectly sets the mood for your scent. ‘I Am Coming Home’ is inspired by ancient tea ceremonies and spices, and delights the senses with a unique and delicate blend of ginger oil, white tea, and cardamom oil.
The Eco-Friendly Fragrance
Sana Jardin 'Revolution De La Fleur'
Sustainable scents that are vegan, 100 percent free from artificial colorants and parabens, and contain at least 15 percent of natural plant essential oils? Yes, they really do exist, and they smell just as good as the good they do for the planet. Introducing Sana Jardin, the world’s first luxury and socially-conscious fragrance brand that not only supports indigenous women around the world, but also embraces sustainable and fair-trade practices to protect the planet and its resources.
‘Revolution de la Fleur’ contains healing ylang ylang, which is linked to the heart chakra to provide physical and emotional support. There’s also Moroccan jasmine, frangipani, rose, and vanilla for a fabulous floral bouquet bursting with goodness.
