Words: Lauren Carbran
Move over citrus scents, this month strawberries and cream are in the spotlight, with the start of Wimbledon. These are the ones, known as gourmand fragrances, that are too delicious not to scream about. They include edible notes that will have you drooling while you’re fixed to the tennis – trust us. But the big question is, will you go for a strawberry scent or join the creamy crew?
MUGLER ANGEL EAU DE TOILETTE FOR HER
Oh em gee. This is possibly the dreamiest scent you can wear during Wimbledon season (and beyond). Mugler has launched another Angel, and this time it’s a light, summery blend of peony, praline and red berries – so you’ll get all the strawberry feels in one spritz. And can we just take a moment to appreciate the gorgeous blue and pink bottle, which now stands on its own (whoop!).
MARC JACOBS DAISY SUNSHINE FOR HER
Need a sparkling, playful scent that was created to smell like a summer’s day? Um, yes please! This one oozes white strawberries, so you’ll smell fruity and fun, whether you’re having drinks by the riverside or eating strawberries near centre court. You’ll also fall for the heart notes of marigold and sensual base accords of white woods. Mmmm…
CREAMY AND DREAMY CREW
ARIANA GRANDE CLOUD FOR HER
Cream notes are all the rage this year – and so are coconut scents (trending for summer 2019, FYI). So it’s no surprise that Ariana Grande Cloud is the talk of the town, with its velvety notes of cream of coconut, praline and juicy pear. It’s the perfect combination to take you from brunch with the girls to a night out on the town. Sweet tooth? This has your name written all over it.
TOM FORD ORCHID SOLEIL FOR HER
We could go on forever about this incredible scent, but all you need to know is that it oozes chestnut cream and will leave you smelling like an exotic dessert. Cue the additional accords of bitter orange, vanilla and pink pepper, which will be sure to get you noticed – so if you want to be the centre of attention this summer, this is the beauty to opt for.
