Stop what you’re doing because we’re about to introduce you to the hottest new perfumes launching this month. These are the ones everyone will be talking about and spritzing this September…
PACO RABANNE LADY MILLION EMPIRE FOR HER
Love Lady Million? Big fan of Paco Rabanne perfume? You’re in for a treat. Put 11 September 2019 in your diary because that’s the day the new Paco Rabanne Lady Million Empire arrives. With its pink diamond bottle makeover and updated concoction of cognac brandy, vanilla and orange blossom, this is sexiness in a bottle. Made for power girls, it’s fierce and unapologetic – just the way we want to smell when we’re living our best life.
Editor review: ‘There’s so much sass in this bottle, and I’ve been looking for a scent like this for ages! You know when you’re going out (on a date or drinks with the girls) and you just want to smell incredible? Lady Million Empire is THAT scent. Expect loads of compliments when you wear it. It’s dreamy.’
HUGO BOSS THE SCENT ABSOLUTE FOR HER
Think you knew what sexy smelt like? Think again. Hugo Boss The Scent Absolute for her is a new, richer blend than the original The Scent fragrance. It’s deeply seductive and daring, making it perfect for date night or when you’re out mingling. After one spray, you’ll get the hints of creamy, honeyed peach coming through. Then comes the roasted coffee and finally the smooth vanilla. It’s a scene-stealer, and you’ll have no problems wearing it if you like being the centre of attention.
Editor review: ‘The new Hugo Boss perfume, Hugo Boss The Scent Absolute for her (and the male version, too), is launching on 11 September 2019 and I couldn’t be more excited for you to try it. I’m a big fan of the original versions, but in the autumn I look for something warm and creamy – and makes me want to cosy up on the sofa. This does the trick for me and – even better – when you wear it on a night out, you won’t go unnoticed. Warning: this is not for the faint-hearted.’
GUERLAIN MON GUERLAIN EAU DE PARFUM INTENSE FOR HER
Guerlain Mon Guerlain is back, this time with an autumn makeover. The new Eau de Parfum Intense is what dreams are made of, with its updated blend of rich lavender, vanilla and sandalwood. Looking for something classy and sophisticated that will also last for ages on your skin? You’ve found your match. And if you follow sustainable beauty brands, Guerlain is one to choose. It produces perfumes with sustainability and the environment in mind – even the transport used from factory to store reduces its carbon footprint.
Editor review: ‘When I tested this out on my friends, they were big fans. I spritzed it on family members, and they were sold. Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum Intense is a scent for everyone, and I love its femininity and vibrance. Top tip: you only need a spray or two of it. Last week, I sprayed it in the morning and could still smell it at the end of the day.’
JIMMY CHOO URBAN HERO FOR HIM
Jimmy Choo has created a new, bold blend for men who like to stand out… and we want in. Perfect to start your autumn off in style, Urban Hero blends unique notes of lemon caviar, black pepper and leather. Our verdict? We’re big fans – it’s powerful, rebellious, and you won’t have smelt anything quite like it before. Wear it to those all-important events in the calendar, whether that’s a big meeting or a black-tie shindig. Oh, and it’s available to buy right now. Whoop!
Editor review: ‘You would never think a blend of leather and black pepper could smell so divine. This ultra-warm combo is really one of a kind and super-daring, and lemon caviar top notes bring added zest. It could be your signature autumn scent, with just the right ratio of woodiness and freshness to keep you smelling your best.’
