Words: Emily Venables
When you think about it, fragrances and cocktails have a lot in common. They’re created with love and passion and they come in all shapes and sizes from classic creations to vibrant, exotic sensations. Plus, they both have the ability to make us smile! Today, we’re partnering our top 5 cocktails with a duo of delectable scents that share the same aromas of tipples of today! Cheers, enjoy!
Mojito - notes of mint
As refreshing as jumping in a pool on a hot summer’s day, a Mojito has long been a popular choice in the warmer months. Its combination of aromatic mint, sweet sugar and zesty lime combine to create a cocktail that smells fresh and revitalising! With top notes of mint, both Acqua di Gioia by Armani and Le Male by Jean Paul Gaultier pack the same aromatic punch as a classic mojito. They’d both equally make a standout choice for a summer scent, whether you’re poolside or not!
Pina Colada – notes of pineapple
If you like Pina Colada’s and getting caught in the rain (you sang that in your head, didn’t you?) then you’re going to love our pineapple infused perfumes to match. The sweet, juicy note sits at the top of both Live Irresistible by Givenchy and Polo Red Extreme by Ralph Lauren and with the first spray, you’re instantly drawn in by its flirtatious effects. Close your eyes and be transported to a beachside bar, Pina Colada in hand and tropical aromas everywhere!
Porn Star Martini - notes of passionfruit
Sexy, bold, and incredibly intense there is nothing subtle about the scent of passionfruit! Think tropical vibes with a sensual appeal our Porn Star Martini cocktail is a match made in heaven for Olympea Intense by Paco Rabanne and Eau de Mandarine by Hermes. These are bold, charming, and smooth fragrances, everything you’d expect when partnered with a cocktail that’s created with sparkle, passion, and oomph!
Espresso Martini – notes of coffee
Ask any coffee lover, an Espresso Martini on a Friday night is where it’s at after a long ol’ week! Coffee is invigorating, rich in flavour and energising, so it’s no wonder it works so wonderfully in a scent! If you live for coffee, or Espresso Martini’s, then try Black Opium by YSL or Boss the Scent Absolute by Hugo Boss to experience the uplifting and compelling effects of this dominant aroma.
Old Fashioned – notes of wood and citrus
Not all cocktails come with vibrant layers and an umbrella poking out the top! The Old Fashioned is made by muddling sugar with bitters, and only when the sugar is completely dissolved can the whiskey, ice, and garnish of orange be added. It’s silky and rich and made with passion and precision. A sophisticated cocktail deserves an equally refined scent to match such as Special Blend by Aramis, which is crafted with reserve blend whiskey for an extra earthy touch, or the warming Wonderlust Sublime by Michael Kors. Sit back, relax, and indulge!
