Craving a new summer fragrance? Well, it’s the perfect time to update your current scent. Yes, as the sun comes out, our wardrobes change and we may update our hairstyle –and probably opt for a fragrance revamp, too. Take a look at these spring-to-summer updates for inspiration…
SPRING SCENT: JIMMY CHOO L'EAU FOR HER
SUMMER UPDATE: JIMMY CHOO FLORAL FOR HER
First came Jimmy Choo L’Eau for crisp springtime days, with its floral-fruity combo of hibiscus flower, peony and nectarine. Now Jimmy Choo has further answered our prayers by launching a new summer scent that doesn’t stray far from our firm spring favourite. Introducing Jimmy Choo Floral, a delicate, ultra-sweet blend of apricot flower, magnolia and delicious nectarine. This time, the added zest of bergamot and mandarin oil sparkles on you, making it the one to take with you whether you’re jetting off to sunny beaches or having a staycation.
SPRING SCENT: YSL MON PARIS FOR HER
SUMMER UPDATE: YSL MON PARIS FLORALE FOR HER
There’s no doubt that YSL Mon Paris is the perfect potion for all seasons, with its sensual pear, white flowers and musk accords. But if you want something super-summery, with an injection of sweet flowers, grab YSL Mon Paris Florale. You’ll smell irresistible smothered in magnolia, jasmine and orange flower – just like a flower garden. We say it’s the perfect perfume to switch up your scent this summer, whether you’re a YSL girl or not.
SPRING SCENT: PACO RABANNE INVICTUS FOR HIM
SUMMER UPDATE: PACO RABANNE INVICTUS LEGEND FOR HIM
Paco Rabanne knows a thing or 10 about fresh, aquatic scents, so there’s no wonder Invictus has been big news since it launched in 2016. Its undeniably sexy, refreshing mix of marine accord, grapefruit peel and gaiac wood is the perfume equivalent of a water mist – SO cooling and it really lasts. There’s now a tropical edition, which channels those vacation vibes you’ve been longing for. Welcome Invictus Legend into your fragrance collection, with its tropical smells of salty grapefruit and honey-mead. That’s not to say we won’t be spritzing Invictus all the time, too – obviously.
