Summer is here (not like it was even gone in the first place) and with that in mind, comes a new splash of fragrances. I mean there’s always an excuse to treat yourself to a thing or two every once in a while, no?
But what’s in it this year for Summer? No matter whether you’re someone who sticks to a single scent or someone who rotates between bottles, getting a new fragrance for yourself (or even as a gift) might just be the next thing you should be splurging on this season. From carefully crafted bottles to fresh, floral or musky scents — there’s a whole new slew of niche, smartly packaged fragrances, made for him and her, that you should be on the lookout for. Peep the new launches below:
Versace Eros Flame
Passionate, intense and masculine. Three words that best describe this fragrance by luxury fashion house brand, Versace. The new men’s fragrance is unequivocally diverse and strong with notes of lemon, tangerine and bitter orange, warmed with hints of black pepper and rosemary. A multi-faceted scent that envelopes the feeling of love, passion and sensuality for the modern day man.
Versace Eros Flame (100ml) $150, available at Sephora, Metro, Takashimaya and BHG.
Bvlgari Le Gemme Opalon
From Bvlgari’s Le Gemme trilogy series, the new Opalon fragrance is a new men’s fragrance that pays homage to mother nature and the urban city. The latest expression distinctively imbues the freshness of the day, revealing notes of Indian lemongrass, geranium, musk, and a hint of citrus for a fascinating depth that harnesses a clean and crisp scent. In short, it basically smells like summer in a bottle.
Bvlgari Le Gemme Opalon, $499, is available at Sephora and other major departmental stores.
Moschino Toy 2
You know Summer is in season when you take a whiff from this fragrance! The cute teddy bear that once housed the Moschino Toy fragrance in 2014 is back with a new makeover to its design — and we’re obsessed! Encased in a clear bear-shaped bottle, the fragrance comes with a floral woody musk scent — with top notes of mandarin orange, apple and magnolia for a fresh introduction before it transforms into the perfect summer wonderland dream with notes of peony, white currant, jasmine (and hints of sandalwood and musk).
Moschino Toy 2 (100ml), $150, is available at Metro.
Whether it’s a new scent you’re looking for, or an aesthetically pleasing bottle to add to your ever-growing shelf of things, this opulent bottle by Hermetica is a definite must. This delicate fragrance is an ambery and oriental number that mesmerises your senses with its unique blend of sweet and velvety facets that leave a powdery dry-down to its scent — a summery amber olfactory that’s made for him (and her)!
Hermetica Amberbee (100ml), $265, is available at all Robinsons stores.
Heretic Florgasm Parfum
A spritz of this evocative perfume takes that memory of lounging in a garden of flora to a whole new experience. Be sparked with pleasure with this sweet, floral scent by Heretic Parfums. Eponymous to its name, the new fragrance gets you into the mood of things with top notes of Linden and orange blossom, accompanied with narcotic jasmine and ylang-ylang accords for that soft, sensual, and intimate scent. A spot on for your date night scent.
Heretic Florgasm ranges from $225 — $295 (50ml), available from 16 June to mid-August at Siri House.
