This summer, as a bouquet of floral and fruity notes reigns supreme, I’m drawn toward fresh fragrances that take inspiration from far-flung destinations, offering an olfactory escape with a single spritz.
Crafted for the sophisticated and confidant woman, Creed’s Love in White for Summer is a sensual scent that transports wearers to the French Riviera where chic white accessories, crisp waves, and long holiday escapes are key. The dreamy fresh floral scent bottles Bulgarian roses, iris and cedar to create a serene summer scent.
Equally captivating is Amouage’s Love Tuberose, a romantic and floral scent by the house’s genius creative director Christopher Chong. An alluring scent blending the warmth of gardenia, tuberose, and jasmine with tender gourmand notes of vanilla and Chantilly cream, Love Tuberose is a rich-scent perfect for the ultra-feminine.
French perfume house Lubin’s latest fragrance Princesses de Malabar is modern and feminine. Ideal for the warmer months, the scent is inspired by the Kerala forest, which abounds with fruity and exotic aromas. It opens with cotton flowers and bergamot, before revealing a heart of peach flesh, white magnolias, jasmine, and ylang-ylang for a unique and joyful easy-to-wear perfume.
One of the most esteemed British fragrance houses, Clive Christian, has launched in Australia with the house showcasing beautiful scents for summer. A cult favourite is the No.1 collection, crafted using the rarest, most precious ingredients from around the world. Bursting with fruity notes of pineapple, plum, and white peach cut with spicier notes of cardamom and pimento oil, No.1 Feminine offers a sophisticated, tantalizing depth this season.
Equally special for men is Clive Christian’s No.1 Masculine, an understated yet distinctive woody fragrance. Heroing luscious notes of bergamot, lime, and pink grapefruit, with the twist of cardamom, nutmeg and thyme, is a perfume that speaks to an accomplished and confident man.
