Scent of Summer 2016

Summer is all about the crisp warm air, sunshine bathed skin and delicate stimulation of the senses. The sensual and seductive aroma of summer breeze carries with it the scent of fresh bloom and nature’s bounty peppered by marine note from a beach close by. Travelling to some of the world’s best islands or countryside is on every globetrotter’s list but some scents do atune well to the destination you travel to.

JACQUES FATH’s Curacao Bay Eau De Parfume: Whisks us into the deep end of the Curacao Bay. Inspiring a marine escapade Curacao Bay is a voyage to the blue horizon. The scent is a true concoction of the oceanic life with grey amber infusion, citrus and iodine notes. The scent is woody with great depth like that of the ocean.

J’adore Dior Eau Lumière: Blood orange and gold are the two visuals that come to mind immediately while testing the new J’adore Dior fragrance. The exploding top notes of blood orange wakes you up and adds an extra lift to your step while the sweet aroma of magnolia, zesty lemon and hint of vanilla gives it a delicate touch. The intensity and radiance of gold stems from the Vallauris flower. J’adore Lumiere while being delicate and essential as you would wear your signature has the radiant intensity of a blooming romance.

HISTOIRES DE PARFUMS 1899: From the series of Histoires we pick the year of 1899.  Inspired by Ernest Hemmingway’s adventurous spirit, energy and his time in Paris, the fragrance pays tribute to the vivacious city. Paris is discovery, bespoke luxury, untamed yet sophisticated and the notes of the fragrance depict its essence well. Italian Bergamot, juniper, orange blossom, vanilla play with the spicy notes of cinnamon, vetiver, black pepper and amber. If you are feeling particularly daring this summer this scent is for you.

Acqua Di Parma Blu Mediterraneo Cedro Di Taormina: Away for the summer on a luxury cruise or yacht to the southern Italian or French coast? The beautiful landscape of Taormina’s coast and azure waters of Mediterranean is the inspiration behind Acqua Di Parma’s fragrance. True to the season’s fragrant whiff the citrus notes add vibrancy while the spicy black pepper add zest and warmth of summer. The base notes of vetiver and Virginia Cedarwood give depth and intensity.

DIPTYQUE Philo Eau De Toilette: This one is a travel edition and most suitable for a summer holiday out into the country or on a paradise island. The fragrance has notes of fig leaves and white cedar that offer the intensity needed to seduce and stimulate the nerves while being light and fresh.

Estée Lauder Pleasures Aqua: Do you dare to be adventurous this summer? Estee Lauder flirts with the idea of glamour, valour, adventure and exploration all in a bottle. The provocation of senses and nerves owes to the rich notes of rose, lilac, peonies, jasmine in contrast with watery accord, honeysuckle, leafy green accord. The seduction is in the distinct characters of both these essence. The fragrance is light as water and delicate while being flirtatious with the unknown.

Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess: Taking inspiration from the original scent this season a sensuous, blend of bergamot, warm amber, Tiare flower, and vanilla combined with creamy coconut adds up to the sun-bathed Bronze Goddess.
