Words: Lauren Carbran
We've seen notes of mimosa and even mojito in perfume, but times are changing. This winter, hot drinks are the inspiration behind the biggest scents. They’ll make you feel all cosy and festive – so, caffeine lovers, get ready to meet your new obsessions…
HOT DRINK ACCORD: MOCHA
FRAGRANCE: HUGO BOSS THE SCENT PRIVATE ACCORD FOR HIM
THE LOWDOWN: Sweet mocha accord is the hero ingredient here – the one that will warm you when you smell it, just like the hot drink. We’re sure you won’t have smelt anything else like it before, with its infusion of cocoa absolute, ginger and spices. It’s sure to seduce the socks of whoever you’re around. Date night or black-tie event? Opt for this one, guys.
HOT DRINK ACCORD: COCOA
THE LOWDOWN: We’ve seen chocolate in perfume a lot this season, but you’ve not smelt anything like this: fact. A stiletto bottle with notes of rich fragrant cocoa? Yes, please! Just like a hot choccie on a winter morning, this scent will give you the boost you’ll need from 9-5 (and way beyond). Delicious notes of almond, vanilla and coffee will make your mouth water. What a blend! Plus, it’s a Collector’s Edition, so it’s unique. How beautiful!
HOT DRINK ACCORD: TEA
FRAGRANCE:DKNY STORIES FOR HER
THE LOWDOWN: Tea notes are trending this year. Why? They’re calming and delicate, just like a herbal tea. And this is especially true of DKNY Stories, which blends white tea, pink guava mousse and sensuous woods. The vibe? Romance in New York City. We want to be there now, smelling of this. Anyone joining?
