Words: Lauren Carbran
Fellow carnival lovers, rejoice! These four scents are must-haves in your day bag. Why? They’re the perfume equivalents of a full-blown party. Dance the day away in them!
YSL BLACK OPIUM EXOTIC ILLUSION
This is the original Black Opium scent of orange blossom, coffee and vanilla, but the bottle has had an exotic makeover, with silver palm trees – and we’re starry-eyed. It’s guaranteed to give you instant carnival vibes, so if you’re heading out to party, take your new BFFE with you.
MUGLER ANGEL EAU DE TOILETTE
Mugler has finally launched another Angel scent, and this time it’s subtle, light and super-feminine. So, if you want to impress but still smell delicate and fresh, it’s the one for you. The energetic notes of mandarin and berries will last from afternoon rave to evening drinks, accompanied by the delicious syrupy hints of praline and apple oil. We’re loving it right now.
VERSACE EROS FLAME
One spritz of this and you’ll be ready to party big time. It transports you straight to the desert heat, thanks to the wafts of pepper, tonka bean and orange. It’s fiery and sexy, so if you love being the centre of attention, this is your carnival vibe in a bottle. Pair with a jazzy outfit. Sorted.
DIESEL SPIRIT OF THE BRAVE
Not afraid to stand out from the crowd? This bold, electrifying fragrance is a blend of bergamot, tonka bean and sage – sounds good, huh? – and it’s just made for days out at a carnival. You’ll have footballer Neymar Jr to thank for that, as he personally created the scent with Diesel’s perfumer. Winning!
