Two days ago when I came back from holiday, and I was in the airport, I couldn’t help myself to find out what’s new in fragrances. I’m a fan of Chanel since I was 17, but for me it doesn’t work in summer.
One of the perfumes that I really liked and possibly I will purchase it soon it’s the one from Guerlain ‘La petite robe noir’. Inspired by the eternity of the little black dress, the perfume exudes gracefulness and Parisian chic. The smell it opens with sparkling and playful aromas of black cherry, bergamot, almond and red berries. Turkish and Bulgarian roses rule the heart, further developing with notes of liquorice and smoked black tea including aniseed, vanilla, tonk a bean, patchouli and iris from the base.
Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gioia is another perfume that I fell in love with. Inspired by the idea of escape into nature, its perfect for summer containing crushed mint leaves and lemon Limone Primo Fiore Femminello from Calabria.
Maison Martin Margiela Untitled, The lentiscus, galbanum, boxwood, and incense notes make this a crisp grassy scent that dries down to a powdery finish.
Opting for a marine fragrance inspired by the ocean or water can be almost as refreshing as the real thing. This one has notes of rose and pear water for a crispness that’s still feminine…..Issey Miyake L’Eau D’Issey Summer fragrance
Last, but not least, another favorite perfume for this summer is Hermes Un Jardin Sur le Toi including a combination of apple and pear with magnolia for a fresh scent.
