As we transition into full winter mode, it’s time to snuggle up with seasonal scents. Updated your winter wardrobe? Well, now it’s time to match your style with a new, trending fragrance…
WINTER STYLE: SEQUINS & SPARKLE
At the Halpern and Molly Goddard AW19 shows, sparkles, sequins and metallics dominated the catwalks – as they do year on year during this season (to our delight). Yep, put your fluffy fleeces and bobble hats to one side and prepare for party season by injecting a bit of razzle-dazzle into your fragrance wardrobe, too. If gold glitter stiletto heels float your boat, give the new Carolina Herrera Glorious Gold Collector For Her a go, with its delicious trio of vanilla, coffee and cocoa. Or opt for YSL Black Opium Click Shine On For Her, a limited-edition perfume pen that’s small enough to fit in your clutch for nights out. It’s silver and sparkly on the outside and brimming with coffee, orange blossom and jasmine on the inside. Simply click its end and apply the gel-like formula onto your wrists and neck.
WINTER STYLE: bold & brilliant
If subtle and neutral are your style, look away now. Sweeping the AW19 trend scene are strikingly vibrant colours, from dreamy red boots at Emporio Armani to eye-catching yellow raincoats at Fendi. A rainbow of emerald blue, fuchsia and orange tones are also trending this season – the bolder, the better. Looking for a matching fragrance to spritz this season? Go daring in Armani Si Passione Maestro For Her, a powerful blend of blackcurrant, pink pepper and jasmine enriched with vanilla and musk at its base. Then there’s Mugler Alien Man Fusion For Him in its bright blue bottle. But the best part? Its unique, seriously seductive formula of cinnamon, ginger and coffee. Enough said.
WINTER STYLE: LEATHER ALL THE WAY
When you think of leather, you probably picture biker jackets, sexy dresses, knee-high boots… But AW19 sees a whole new interpretation of leather as we currently know it. This season it’s all about the smart-casual, high-waisted, slightly baggy black leather trousers (seen at Tom Ford and Luis Vuitton), and we’re going wild for them. Need an edgy scent to match? Give Tom Ford Metallique For Her a go. The sleek, stylish bottle is filled with roses, lily of the valley and sandalwood, created to smell like a second skin. For men, the new, striking Valentino Born in Roma Uomo is a must-try, thanks to the woody mix of mineral salt, leather and ginger.
