There’s nothing quite like a beach vacation: in your bikini and sunglasses, watching the waves crash into the sand, and doing so much, yet nothing at all. Besides packing along your sun protection products, don’t forget the right fragrances too! Perfumes have a memory-triggering effect on us, which means wearing the right fragrances on that relaxing beach vacation can make your holiday memories last even longer.
Here are the latest summer launches that you should look out for as you pack your bags for that well-deserved mid-year break.
1. AZZARO WANTED GIRL EDT
This new fragrance comes from a family that practises sustainable sourcing practices. The four main ingredients that constitute the fragrance – ginger essential oil, patchouli essence, pink peppercorn essence, and vetiver essence – are all harvested responsibly from Azzaro’s partners in Madagascar and Haiti. You can now worry less about your environmental footprint and more on the things on your to-do list.
Azzaro Wanted Girl EDT is available in 30ml (SGD90), 50ml (SGD 129), and 80ml (SGD165) at all major department stores.
2. CAROLINA HERRERA GOOD GIRL DOT DRAMA EDP
Polka dots are a girl’s best friend! They are simple yet sophisticated, timeless, and versatile all at the same time – reasons why they’re the theme of Carolina Herrera’s new Good Girl Dot Drama EDP. This sweet and spicy fragrance is housed in a bottle that is shaped like the high stiletto that we all know and love.
Carolina Herrera Good Girl Dot Drama EDP retails at SGD197 (80ml) and is available at Tangs, Metro, BHG, Isetan, Robinsons, and Takashimaya.
3. HERMETICA ALCOHOL-FREE FRAGRANCE
If you’ve been searching for an alcohol-free fragrance formula, you’re in luck. Hermetica has just launched its line of 13 molecular perfumes made with both natural ingredients and synthetic molecules. This technique of perfume-making, inspired by ancient alchemy practices, yields a formulation that immediately reveals the heart of the fragrance upon application.
Hermetica Alcohol-free Fragrance is available in 100ml (SGD305), 50ml (SGD215), and a 100ml refill (SGD207) for the scent Source. All other scents are available in 100ml (SGD265), 50ml (SGD175), and a 100ml refill (SGD167). You can find Hermetica at Robinsons Heeren.
4. MOSCHINO TOY 2 EDP
Moschino Toy 2’s adorable yet sophisticated packaging has certainly caught our attention. This second edition of the iconic fragrance features floral, woody and musky notes that come together in a joyful scent, housed in a teddy bear-shaped bottle that reflects the cheekiness and sophistication of the brand and fragrance.
Moschino Toy 2 EDP is available in 30ml (SGD85), 50ml (SGD115), 100ml (SGD150) at Metro Takashimaya and BHG.
5. MUGLER ANGEL EAU CROISIERE EDT
With notes of mango, grapefruit, blackcurrant, and patchouli, the Mugler Angel Eau Croisiere fragrance reminds us of a juicy cocktail on the deck of a summer cruise ship. The bottle is also one to turn heads – just think about how pretty its gradient multi-coloured finish and iconic star shape will look on your vanity.
Mugler Angel Eau Croisiere EDT retails at SGD123 and is available at all major department stores.
6. PACO RABANNE OLYMPEA LEGEND EDP
We love a good confidence booster and this is exactly it. Paco Rabanne’s Olympea Legend puts a twist on its original formula with green vegetal notes of desert palm flower and fruity accents of salty plum, which perfectly balances freshness and sensuality. This fragrance is presented in a bottle that resembles a trophy – invoking feelings of glory, which is all we want to feel after we’re done with the beach getaway and walking into the office on a Monday morning.
Paco Rabanne Olympea Legend EDP is available in 80ml (SGD166) and 50ml (SGD129) at Tangs, Metro, BHG, Isetan, Robinsons, Takashimaya, and Sephora Ion.
7. BOSS BOTTLED INFINITE EDP
The man of today’s needs and wants can be summed up in Boss’s new Bottled Infinite fragrance, crafted by master perfumer Annick Menardo. The top layers of the fragrance are spicy, while its heart features warm, aromatic notes of patchouli, rosemary, and lavender. Boss Bottled Infinite is also the first fragrance that has been produced using “diamond technology”, which helps to prolong the lifespan of the scent.
Boss Bottled Infinite EDP is available in 200ml (SGD214), 100ml (SGD134), and 50ml (SGD107).
8. BVLGARI LE GEMME MEN EDP
Bvlgari’s latest trilogy of men’s fragrances will take you on a journey through ancient spice trade routes as spicy top notes from the collection are seamlessly incorporated with the musk bases. This launch is the brainchild of Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier and Bvlgari, and features three rich scents: Opalon (tribute to Australian white opal), Yasep (inspired by red jasper) and Falkar (embodiment of Brazilian Falcon’s Eye).
9. PACO RABANNE MILLION X PAC-MAN EDT
Pac-man glo-ed up! Paco Rabanne has just unveiled limited collectible editions of its Million fragrances, housed in gorgeous gold metal cases and embossed with chrome pac-dots. Fun fact: the number 3,333,360 which has been engraved on the bottle is the highest score ever achieved on a game of Pac-Man. Talk about feeling like a million bucks every time you step out of the house.
Paco Rabanne 1 MILLION x Pac-man EDT retails at SGD138 for 100ml. Paco Rabanne is available at Tangs, Metro, BHG, Isetan, Robinsons, and Takashimaya.
