Words: Lauren Carbran
Dreaming about surfing the waves in California? Then you’ll already know about the surfer trend on the SS19 catwalks, where tie dye, denim shorts and actual surf boards were seen on the catwalk at Etro, Calvin Klein and Prada. Channel your inner wave-worshipper and get your hands on these aquatic fragrances…
PACO RABANNE INVICTUS AQUA FOR HIM
Invictus Aqua smells of the ocean, so if you want to be transported to an exotic getaway, opt for this. Inspired by the beach, the fresh notes of grapefruit zest, violet leaves and marine accord last on your skin, while the bottle is a piece of art in itself. This is a must-have aquatic fragrance.
GUCCI BLOOM ACQUA DI FIORI FOR HER
This floral-aquatic scent is like no other. If you want a rich, sweet scent, you’ll love Acqua di Fiori, which oozes water-drenched flowers, like jasmine and tuberose. It’s powerful and intense, thanks to the added notes of musk and sandalwood, so you’ll want to sport this from morning meeting to evening dinner plans.
ARMANI ACQUA DI GIO FOR HIM
Aquatic fragrances don’t get more statement than this. Filled with notes of marine accord, lemon, lime and neroli, Acqua di Gio is a classic (it first launched in 1996 but to us, it will never get old). Spritz it in the morning for an instant spring in your step, guys.
