Superfoods don’t just belong on your dinner plate. Nope, you can now smell them in your favourite scents. Enter the fragrances with superfood ingredients – they don’t guarantee you a healthier lifestyle, but they sure smell energising and delicious. Here are our top superfood saviours…
JUICY COUTURE OUI FOR HER – ACAI BERRY TEA
A good fruity perfume is tricky to find, but this superfood scent has hit the spot. Juicy Couture Oui not only contains water lemon (a fusion of watermelon and lemon) and pear, but also rich, antioxidant-packed acai berry tea. The smell? Super-sweet and fresh, especially when the heart note of honeysuckle comes through…
JIMMY CHOO FEVER FOR HER – PLUM
When Jimmy Choo brings out a party scent, we wear it 24/7. And it’s hard not to love Fever, which combines the sexy and playful notes of black plum nectar with vanilla and sandalwood. Plums are a superfood – and did you know you should always eat the skin as it contains most of the antioxidants? We’re totally in love with it.
LACOSTE L'HOMME INTENSE FOR HIM – GINGER
This bold scent contains powerful ginger, which helps you fight colds and flu. It creates a super-spicy and electric fragrance, which, when mixed with black pepper and vetiver, gives off a fresh smell like no other. There's nothing quite like Lacoste L'Homme Intense.
HUGO BOSS THE SCENT PRIVATE ACCORD FOR HIM – COCOA
What do you get when you mix cocoa absolute and ginger? Hugo Boss The Scent Private Accord for him. This magnetic, sophisticated scent is not only the male scent of the moment (everyone’s raving about it), but it’s also a superfood concoction like no other. The ginger at its top is fresh and sharp, while the middle notes are of mocha accord, with a base of cocoa absolute, which is dark chocolate, a superfood that promotes muscle growth and reduces stress. Oh, and it’s also a favourite in our snack cupboard…
