Tired of your old scents and looking to spruce up your wardrobe with some needed new scents?
We’ve compiled a list of newest perfumes to look out for with the arrival of summer, from bright and zesty to cool, graceful, sophisticated and sexy.
1. Dolce&Gabbana’s Light Blue Italian Zest
What better way to start the season of summer than with Dolce&Gabanna’s zesty, citrusy new scent: the Light Blue Italian Zest, a limited edition meant to celebrate the joyfulness of Capri, the summery island paradise of which it was based off.
Italian Zest features zesty scents like lemon zest and peppers with floral undertones such as jasmine and roses for the ladies, while Pour Homme features the same zesty scent with more masculine, woody undertones like rosewood and amber for the gents.
Light Blue Italian Zest retails at SGD127 (50ml), SGD164 (100ml), and the Light Blue Italian Zest Pour Homme retails at SGD119 (75ml), SGD165 (125ml). Both are available at all major departmental stores.
2. Guerlain Paris’ Aqua Allegoria Passiflora EDT
First of all – we couldn’t possibly go without a mention of Aqua Allegoria Passiflora’s beautiful looking bottle, that will have you feeling like royalty, with its intricate-looking gold coloured netting that we absolutely dig.
Passiflora blends the fruity flavour of sun-soaked passion fruit blended with ylang-ylang flowers, which incorporates an aquatic freshness to evoke a summery, exotic getaway.
Guerlain Paris’ Aqua Allegoria Passiflora EDT retails at SGD103 (75ml), SGD143 (125ml) and is available at any counter or boutiques located at Takashimaya D.S., Metro Paragon, Sephora and TANGS Plaza.

4. Mugler’s Aura
We absolutely love how the packaging exudes a feeling of boldness and fantastical, which is exactly what Aura Mugler is all about.
Aura is all about the senses and unleashing the wild, primal side of the woman: it features Tiger Liana as the main ingredient, known for its sweet and smoky scent, blended with rhubarb leaves, orange, bourbon vanilla and Wolfwood which creates the dark, beating botanical core.
Spritz this bad boy on and join us on the dark side.
Aura retails at SGD149 (30ml), SGD188 (50ml), SGD250 (90ml), and is available at all major departmental stores.
5. Carolina Herrera’s Good Girl
Stilettos: the ultimate height of sexiness. It is a thing made of dreams, glamour and female empowerment.
This is precisely what the Good Girl does – it is all about the modern femme fatale, who teeters the line between the sweet, vanilla-like scent of Tonka, and the seductive scent of Dulce de Leche, with hints of sandalwood, ylang-ylang and jasmine for sophistication.
Carolina Herrera’s Good Girl retails at SGD143 (50ml), SGD184 (80ml) at boutiques and counters at the following locations: Takashimaya D.S., TANG Plaza, Vivocity, Metro Paragon, Centrepoint, Woodlands, Robinsons Heeren, Raffles City, JEM, BHG Bugis, Isetan Scotts and any Sephora outlet.
6. Bvlgari’s Omnia Pink Sapphire
Are you bold enough to dive into the world of magic, enchantment, living out your every dream, every whim?
The sparkling fragrance reflects exactly that: it features floral notes like fizzy pink pomelo and pink pepper for that bit of whimsy and daring, and floral and woody notes to top it off.
Do you believe in magic? We certainly do now.
Bvlgari’s Omnia Pink Sapphire retails at SGD84 (25ml), SGD114 (40ml), SGD139 (65ml) and is available in all major departmental stores.
7. Calvin Klein’s Eternity Air
Calvin Klein’s Eternity Air is a fragrance that capitalises on its namesake: the air, of the power and beauty of natural elements, and the sensuality of love.
It features fresh and crisp accords, with female editions blending it with more feminine, airy floral notes like peony, and male editions blending it with denser, more sensual notes like berries, lavender, violet leaves, and sea moss.
It is a scent that will leave you smelling fresh even in the hot, sweltering Singapore.

8. Burberry’s Mr. Indigo
This is a fragrance for the gents – it is bold, masculine, but also fresh and energetic, combining an aromatic blend of violet-leaf and spearmint oil with citrus and woody notes, reminiscent of the crisp air along the British coast, with a touch of sophistication.
Spritz this fragrance on and walk each step with confidence and poise.
Mr. Burberry Indigo retails at SGD106 (50ml), SGD149 (100ml), SGD172 (50ml) and is available at any of the boutiques at Marina Bay Sands, ION Orchard Mall, Paragon Shopping Centre, T Galleria by DFS, Singapore and counters in any Sephora outlet.
