Any fragrance junkies out there? I horde fragrances because I love pairing a scent to my mood of the day, or the occasion that I’m attending. It’s kind of like a touch of lip gloss that you put on before you step out of the house – I simply can’t do without a dash of fragrance!
If you’re still looking for a signature scent, or simply want to add on to your collection. Check out these new launches that have just arrived in the market:
Just Cavalli by Roberto Cavalli
Described as an alluring scent that represents youth, vibrancy, sensuality and fun, the new Just Cavalli is endorsed by Georgia May Jagger. You may have found her last name familiar – yes, she’s the daughter of Mick Jagger. If not for her last name, her gap-tooth smile and sultry pout would probably have made you remember some of the campaigns she’s done. This provocative fragrance opens with a dazzling top note of Neroli, followed by the scent of Tahitian Tiare Flower at its heart.
The EDT retails at SGD58 (30ml), SGD77 (50ml), SGD103 (75ml). A body lotion and shower gel retailing at SGD39 each are also in the collection to complement the scent. This is already available and can be found at Sephora stores and Robinsons The Centrepoint.
Valentina Acqua Floreale by Valentino
Speaking of signature scent, the Valentina is mine. I’m not sure if it’s because that’s the perfume I wore when I went on the first date with my now-fiance, or it’s because I just really think the fragrance represents me, but it’s the go-to scent for me whenever I want to uplift my mood and feel like “myself”. This is a romantic and ethereal fragrance that is encased in a beautiful bottle that comes with a floral detail that’s inspired by the Valentino couture. This year, they launched the Aqua Floreale, a light variant that’s super delicate. This fragrance features the notes of bergamot, neroli, mimosa, jasmine, orange blossom and tuberose. At the base, amber and patchouli take over to complete the bouquet.
This retails at SGD162 (80ml) and SGD126 (50ml), and is available at Metro Paragon, Robinsons Raffles City, Takashimaya D.S and Tangs Orchard.
Peony & Blush Suede by Jo Malone
Developed by perfumer Christine Nagel, the soon-to-launch cologne by Jo Malone is called Peony & Blush Suede, designed to capture the scent of the precious flower (that only blossoms once a year and for a short period of time) and suede. Interestingly, we were told that leather was a companion they considered, but it doesn’t complement the delicate scent of the peony. Besides these two leading scents, the fragrance also features red apple, honey and rose. Like all Jo Malone scents, this is also created for pairing. Go with English Pear & Freesia for an extra touch of freshness or with the Orange Blossom if you prefer something more invigorating.
The Peony & Blush Suede Cologne will retail at SGD97 (30ml), and SGD194 (100ml). It will be accompanied by Body & Hand Wash (250ml, SGD95), Body Crème (175ml, SGD140) and Home Candle (200g, SGD 115). The collection will be available from September 2013.
