Celebrating the arrival of warm, sunny weather, the spring/summer season brings a variety of new fragrances that emphasize fruity and floral scents. Below are FAJO Magazine’s favourite picks.
Chrome United by Azzaro
This eau de toilette for men is a tribute to the French-Italian fashion designer Loris Azzaro. The scent is inspired by a cheerful summer trip to the beach.
The top of this fragrance is made up of Sichuan pepper and coriander, followed by hints of bergamot, Ceylon black tea and violet leaf. The fragrance finishes with cedar wood and white musk. The blue bottle is inspired by the sea and the clear summer sky. The Chrome United collection also introduces a new deodorant stick.
Place Vendôme by Boucheron
Boucheron has launched an eau de parfum and an eau de toilette as part of the Place Vendôme collection. Both bottles use worked, heavy glass that is inspired by the stone paving of Place Vendôme. The luxuriousness of these fragrances is shown in the bottles’ pattern and silver and gold detailing.
The eau de parfum starts off with pink peppercorn and orange blossom and continues with jasmine and honey for a floriental, woody scent. The last notes of the perfume are cedar wood and benzoin.
The eau de toilette is pink to represent the sky at dawn. The woody floral scent starts with yuzu, osmanthus and peony. At its core, you can catch hints of iris, rose essence and jasmine petals. The fragrance finishes with notes of cedar wood and white musk.
Burberry Brit Sheer and Brit Rhythm
Burberry Brit Sheer is a fruity, floral fragrance that is soft pink to represent youth, grace and personality. It starts off with notes of yuzu, mandarin, pineapple leaves, litchi and grapes. At its heart, you find peony, peach blossom and sweet pea. The perfume ends with white musk and amyris wood.
Burberry Brit Rhythm’s launch starred British model and actress Suki Waterhouse. The scent exudes power with a rock ’n’ roll edge. Its powdery, floral notes are created from a mixture of British lavender and orange blossom, and it is inspired by the adrenaline rush from watching live music.
Exotic by Jimmy Choo
Jimmy Choo is usually associated with shoes, but the company also specializes in fragrances. The Exotic collection radiates hot summer days, and its sexy and colourful packaging aims to attract diverse, edgy and poised women. The scent’s top notes include black currant sorbet and pink grapefruit. Passionflower and tiger orchid can be found at the heart, and raspberry and patchouli finish it off.
Legend Special Edition by Mont Blanc
Bergamot, Peruvian lime, lavender and spearmint are the top notes of this limited-edition fragrance.
The heart notes are violet leaves, green apple, cardamom and pomarose, while the bottom leaves notes of oak moss, white cedar wood, sandalwood and dry amber.
