Words: Lauren Carbran
Got a sweet tooth? It’s time to raise your perfume game. A new batch of gourmand scents has just launched with notes that will remind you of your favourite sweet treats. We’d happily spray them all day long…
BRITNEY SPEARS RAINBOW FANTASY FOR HER = CANDY FLOSS
One glance of this bottle and we were fans. But the best part is that Britney has bottled up the smells of our favourite sweet treat: candyfloss. With base notes of cotton candy and a duo of pear and lemon, Rainbow Fantasy is in keeping with the intense gourmand trend that’s currently sweeping the scents scene. Perfection.
PACO RABANNE OLYMPEA LEGEND FOR HER = BAKED PLUMS
Vanilla and plum sparkling on your skin? Um, yes please! This sharp but sweet combo is one of a kind and, best of all, you can prolong the smell of your favourite dessert – it conjures up baked plums with vanilla ice cream on the side for us. Wear it for summer, whether you’re going on a city break or to an exotic island. Keep calm and spray Olympea Legend is our current motto.
ARIANA GRANDE CLOUD FOR HER = CREAMY COCONUT
Sweet dreams are made of this. First up, the bottle is magical – a super-cute cloud that’s totally Instagrammable – then you’ve got the sugary, syrupy notes of cream of coconut, praline and vanilla. Excuse us while we spray this all over us. Just when we thought we couldn’t love Ariana Grande any more, she smashes it with yet another world-class perfume.
ARMANI STRONGER WITH YOU INTENSELY FOR HIM = SUGAR-COATED CHESTNUTS
Guys, you’ll be enchanted by Stronger With You Intensely, the latest launch in the Stronger With You franchise. It’s so irresistible and sensual, we can’t stop spritzing it. Sugar-coated chestnuts and vanilla are the real show-stoppers here, so if you like nutty, bold and creamy smells, this one’s for you. The scent may be sexy, but don’t save it for the evenings – wear it all the time.
MUGLER ALIEN MAN FUSION = CINNAMON ROLLS
Indulge in Mugler Alien Man, the new sweet but spicy scent on the block. You’ll get hungry just reading about it, with its delicious sharp blend of tangy ginger, sweet cinnamon and bold coffee. And while some gourmand scents can be hard to pull off, this one has woody and leathery notes to make it even more sensual. It’s so effortlessly cool, it would be rude not to spritz it.
