If your nose is delighted by the scent of freshly cut fruit, vibrant and sparkly notes that are subtle, yet sexy, a fruity perfume is just for you! We’re not talking about the sickly-sweet sprays that used to fill the P.E. changing rooms at school, but the grown-up versions which are sophisticated and so very feminine. Let’s take a look at 5 of the best around today. (Note: these do not count as one of your 5 a day… sorry!)
1. Mon Paris by Yves Saint Laurent
Inspired by the romance of the French capital, Mon Paris by Yves Saint Laurent is perfect for anybody after a scent with that little “je ne sais quoi”. Ideal for everyday wear, the mouth-watering fragrance opens with vibrant, juicy notes of strawberry, raspberry and pear before combining with a bold chypre heart of white flowers and Datura orchid. The best bit? Sensual base notes of patchouli and white musk anchor it down to make this captivating blend last and last. Plus, it comes housed in an iconic multi-faceted bottle with rock leather ties to ensure it looks just as good as it smells!
2. Modern Muse by Estée Lauder
If you appreciate a complex and innovative fragrance that champions dynamic femininity, this one is for you! With an alluring contrast of sparkling florals, exotic fruits and sleek, sensual woods, Modern Muse Eau de Parfum by Estée Lauder ticks all the right boxes. Notes of sweet mandarin, honeysuckle nectar, jasmine, tuberose, fresh lily, patchouli, soft musk and amber wood may sound like a lot, but they somehow all work together to create a truly delectable scent that’s as unique as they come. The result ensures Modern Muse is destined to become a year-round signature for lovers of fruity perfume.
3. Jimmy Choo by Jimmy Choo
No single perfume has the power to evoke femininity, sensuality and seduction quite like Jimmy Choo by Jimmy Choo. Unlike anything you have ever smelled before, it’s a fruity floral that’s taken to unexpectedly warm, rich and woody depths. The fragrance opens with luminous top notes of pear, mandarin and ginger, before giving way to a soft heart of tea rose and exotic tiger orchid for a smooth, creamy touch. The lingering base of cedarwood, sweet toffee and Indonesian patchouli adds a wonderfully vibrant layer to the scent. Trust us, it’s confident and glamorous in the most effortless way!
4. Ralph by Ralph Lauren
Created for those who approach life with confidence, style, and complete optimism, Ralph by Ralph Lauren is probably one of the most uplifting scents there is! The sparkling top notes of bright apple tree leaves, freesia, and Italian mandarin will send your senses soaring before the juicy mix expertly intertwines with a floral heart of osmanthus, magnolia and linden blossom. It’s all underscored by the smooth, powdery base of musk and white orris, ensuring this is a perfume that’s hard to miss. You only need one spray of this refreshing and energising fragrance to fully understand why people say it’s a classic!
5. Bright Crystal by Versace
Fruity fragrance fans are bound to fall hard for Bright Crystal by Versace! The distinctive top notes of yuzu, ice accord and juicy pomegranate are given a surprising twist with an enticing addition of peony, magnolia and lotus flower at the perfume’s floral heart. You’ll find a smooth, warm, dry down of acajou, amber and musk at the base. Strong without being overpowering, the addictive smell will linger for hours on end without you having to worry about reapplying throughout the day. If you’re looking for a fresh, energetic and vibrant fragrance, you can’t go wrong with this scent.
