We’ve rounded up the best scents on the site that we feel need to be in your cart, immediately.
Sisley Paris Eau Tropicale Eau de Toilette For Women
The first scent on our list will have you yearning for a sneaky getaway on a tropical island in the middle of nowhere. Sisley Paris’ Eau Tropicale EDT smells like summer and here’s why – the sensual, woody scent has all the right notes to put you in holiday mode. Interestingly enough, the fragrance opens with a fresh, citrusy combo of bergamot, mandarin, grapefruit and lemon. Purple ginger, osmanthus, rose and violet are responsible for the floral heart notes of the EDT, while vanilla, musk, patchouli and vetiver give us a warm, exotic base. Exquisite!
Jo Malone London Star Magnolia Cologne
If spring is your thing, then you’ll love Jo Malone London’s Star Magnolia Cologne. Inspired by the enchanting blossom trees in the parks of Shanghai, this scent opens with crisp notes of lemon, ginger and shisho. The star of the show lies within the heart notes, and if you’re a true white floral fan, you’ll notice magnolia and neroli taking centre stage. Once the cologne has settled, you’ll be greeted to a creamy sandalwood base. It’s soft, feminine and so enjoyable to wear.
Tom Ford Beau De Jour Eau De Parfum
If a perfectly groomed gentleman were a fragrance, this would be him. Tom Ford’s Beau De Jour EDP is classic, floral and eau-so fresh. Upon first spritz, you’ll find a fusion of combined lavender notes, namely, lavender from Provence. The middle notes were definitely designed to tantalise our senses, with their combo of floral green geranium, African rosemary, oakmoss and basil. Are you ready for the base? It’s incredibly earthy with amber, patchouli and musk wrapping up this crisp, clean EDP.
Estée Lauder Desert Eden Eau De Parfum
Before we even start talking about the juice, can we have a moment for the bottle? Estée Lauder’s seductive Desert EDP belongs to the woody floral family and lasts for an impressive 12 hours thanks to its scent capture fragrance extender technology. Inspired by a desert sunrise, the note line-up includes sandalwood draped in hints of olibanum and Turkish rose. Dreamy, right?
Tom Ford Soleil Brulant Eau de Parfum 100ml
We couldn’t resist including a second scent by Mr Ford on our wish list. This supremely luxe EDP is unisex and part of the amber woody fragrance family. The golden bottle encapsulates the high-shine brilliance of the sun beaming on a private oasis. You can’t get more Tom Ford than that. Pink pepper, mandarin orange and bergamot make up the top notes, with orange blossom and honey making up the fresh floral heart. Woody notes of amber, resin, olibanum, vetiver and leather make up the masculine base. Swoon.
