Ever wondered what an oriental scent actually is? Clue: it’s NOT a scent from Asia. Orientals are warm and sensual, and include vanilla – possibly the most delicious smell in the world. There are variations of oriental perfumes, too, such as floriental, which is a combo of floral and oriental. Too much info to take in? You’ll learn all about oriental perfumes by taking a look at our faves…
Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb for her
If you love flowers AND vanilla, your heaven’s right here. The notes of roses, jasmine and patchouli with vanilla in Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb are something to write home about. They put floral bouquets to shame, and you’ll want to spritz this floriental fragrance all over you everywhere you go. Warning: it’s highly addictive.
Marc Jacobs Divine Decadence for her
Marc Jacobs Divine Decadence is one for the luxury seekers. You only have to smell the notes of champagne, honeysuckle and vanilla to want to befriend it. Elegant, huh? And that bottle puts the traditional designs to shame. We challenge you not to love this, girls.
Calvin Klein Deep Euphoria for her
Warm and woody, just like a classic oriental scent, Calvin Klein Deep Euphoria is a bold choice – thanks to its notes of black rose, mandarin leaves and musk, which create a vanilla-like smell. Don’t believe us? Try it for yourself.
Hugo Boss Boss Bottled Intense for him
Guys, we may have found your best friend. Hugo Boss Boss Bottled Intense mixes cinnamon, apple and vanilla for a delicious oriental scent. After all, it probably reminds you of your grandma’s homemade apple pie – and who doesn’t love that? But trust us, it’s modern, sexy and totally on trend.
Paco Rabanne 1 Million Privé for him
All hail Paco Rabanne 1 Million Privé. If you haven’t heard of this new oriental scent, where have you been? It’s an updated twist on the classic 1 Million (and we know it’s up there with your faves), with notes of cinnamon, tonka bean and blood mandarin. The overall smell? Sweet and sharp – and we’re its biggest fans.
