Just as every year, the big perfume houses pamper us with new flavors and limited editions, each more special than the other. For the perfume aficionadas, this is a really tough try: what to choose with so many available options? I hope to ease your choice with a shorter list (somewhat) of new fragrances. To me, at least, they are all worthy of being tested, bought and loved. All summer long!
Gucci Bloom Aqua di Fiori
It is the second fragrance from the Gucci Bloom line, the first being launched in 2017. Aqua di Fiori is a fresh and floral eau de toilette, inspired by the sincere friendship between women. It’s a flavor that makes you think of spontaneity and enjoying life. Created by Antonio Morillas, Gucci Bloom Aqua di Fiori has an amazing composition: it contains tuberose, jasmine, but also green, fresh accords, and woody notes.
Elie Saab, Le Parfum in White
Are you dreaming to be an Elie Saab bride, wearing a fabulous dress, as only the renowned Lebanese designer knows how to create? Well, until then, we have a more accessible, yet tantalizing, proposal: Le Parfum in White from Elie Saab, an eau de parfum inspired by the wedding day. It’s a chic and modern aroma, with red fruit, orange blossom, dry jasmine, white musk and white amber notes. And you can wear it every day, not just at special occasions!
Carolina Herrera, 212 VIP Party Fever
Be honest: don’t you just wait for this summer’s party season? Me too! So I was very glad when I learned that the Carolina Herrera brand launched a new, limited-edition fragrance, inspired precisely by parties. It’s a sophisticated, energetic, seductive aroma that contains litchi liqueur, raspberry, jasmine and musk notes. And best part is that it doesn’t matter what time you leave the party. With this perfume, all the guests will surely remember you!
Davidoff Cool Water Sea Rose, Carribean Summer Edition
The House of Davidoff introduces limited editions quite often, so, naturally, we were expecting a special launch this summer. I’m talking about Cool Water Sea Rose, Carribean Summer Edition, which gets you thinking of a tropical paradise: white sand, calm waves and not even a cloud in the sky. It contains mandarin, nashi pear and rose notes, as well as woody and sophisticated cashmeran accords.
Issey Miyaki, L’Eau d’Issey Summer
Relaunched in a new bottle, with a tropical design, L’Eau d’Issey Summer from Issey Miyaki is a floral-fruity fragrance inspired by the exotic dragon fruit. It’s an extremely feminine aroma that combines the pink grapefruit and litchi notes with the delicious guava and passion fruit flavors. And all of this is intensified by the floral harmonies, woody notes and just a hint of vanilla.
