From floral and fruity to spicy and fresh, there’s always a scent for everyone. Scents generally play an important role in forming your identity. Wouldn’t it make a better impression if you actually looked and smelled good at the same time too?
Fragrance has the power to elicit all sorts of emotions, which is why this year, luxury brands such as Chanel, Chloé, and many more, have taken things up a notch with their blend of scents. We’re not talking about the same old classics — nope. Among new exciting releases, we’ve also noticed many brands debuting fresh additions to their fragrance lines.
So if you’re thinking of picking a new scent to spice things up this year, you might want to check these new releases out.
1. Louis Vuitton Attrape-Reves
Far from your usual, conventional scents, don’t be fooled by how demure this little beauty may look: this fragrance by Louis Vuitton, is anything but subtle. Louis Vuitton’s Attrape-Reves, which also stands for “Dream Catcher”, captures the essence of euphoria with an explosive, lively and surprising composition. Made with a combination of peony, cocoa and patchouli, this refreshing scent will leave you breathless and starry-eyed in ways you’ve never been before.
If we had to choose one scent that took us by surprise, the Louis Vuitton Attrape-Reves is a sure win.

The third instalment to Gucci Bloom’s fragrance line: Nettare Di Fiori, takes on a new spin on the original scent.

After hopping from one city to another, Gabrielle Chanel surprises us with different scents in the new Les Eaux de Chanel. A must-have if you’re looking for a fresh scent with every spritz. The Les Eaux de Chanel comes in three variations — Deauville, Venise and Biarritz. However, we particularly like how the Paris-Venise fragrance comes with an oriental accord with a hint of vanilla and tonka note.
We’re no stranger to the scent, but what’s new is Chanel expanding the range with a scented bath line, set to release later this September. The new collection features a delicate foaming shower gel and a silky body lotion for that satiny finish that we’re all obsessed about. Who doesn’t love smelling like just got out of the shower?
