Fragrance serves us more purpose than just smelling nice or completing an outfit, it creates a mood, an ambiance of sorts that can uniquely make us feel vulnerable and confident at the same time. It’s the burst of energy, the awakened senses, the heightened aroma, a childhood memory or a spritz that takes you back to the sweet but salty Mediterranean air. In whatever way you understand fragrance to be, its position within your beauty cabinet is undeniable.
Some favourites include:
YSL – BLACK OPIUM, Sweet, sultry with a depth, the notes read between vanilla, black coffee accord, cedarwood and white musk.
DIOR, MISS DIOR, Light, sweet and on the body fills the room with a refreshing floral scent. Blended with bergamot, rosewood and grass rose.
GIORGIO ARMANI – SI, An everyday scent that is infamous to any nose. Serenaded with blackcurrant liqueur, patchouli and rose. With the amber and musk undertones, the warmth sits on the skin with a sultry and silk finish.
GIORGIO ARMANI – SI PASSIONE, Injecting an essence of heat compared to the Si fragrance, Si passion is blended with pink pepper, blackcurrant, vanilla and jasmine. Exuding a smooth and sensual note, this fragrance is sexy and feminine.
SANA JARDIN, SANDALWOOD TEMPLE, Sustainable and eco-friendly, Sana Jardin is a recent discovery that I plan on continuing to adding to my collection. Opening with bergamot, sweet neroli, sandalwood and vanilla – you only need a little to go along way.
SANA JARDIN, NUBIAN MUSK, Combining rose, jasmine and moroccan grapefruit, the musk settles into a deep yet sophisticated scent that can also be layered with a light scent such as Miss Dior for the perfect balance.
BYREDO, BIBLIOTHÉQUE – Sweet, mellow yet smokey, the scent is built with peach, plum, vanilla and leather.
