Iris & Rose
Tiffany & Co Sheer, from $105.
First up I need to disclose I love Tiffany & Co fragrances. And the latest creation is no exception, called Sheer it’s the freshest in the collection yet. The same base of musk and iris, which makes it some warm, with the freshness of mandarin leaf and blackcurrant - this is luxurious and effervescent all at once.
Lilac, Violet and orange blossom
Gucci Guilty Pour Femme Eau de Parfum from, $150.
The citrus blossom oil from the mandora fruit, found in the Mediterranean island of Cyprus, once blended with pink pepper, delicate lilac and violet gives this fragrance musky warmth but a fresh bite. Oh and the GG logo on the bottle is a designer gift without the expensive investment.
Freesia & lychee
Chloe Nomade EDT from, $104.
This is the second Nomade from Chloe in a year, and this new interpretation of the original is fresh with a tangy bite. An eau de toilette, by nature, its lighter and fresher, but thanks to the presence of lychee it is also quite exotic. With only three dominant notes freesia, lychee, and oakmoss it's ideal for a woman who likes a simple, fresh fragrance that smells like summer.
Ginger orchid & ylang-ylang
Jean Paul Gaultier Classique Cabaret EDP 100ml, $182.
As spicy as the figure-hugging sparkly dress this fragrance bottle is adorned in, this fragrance is both romantic and exotic. The blend of spicy and sweet notes is from star anise, orange, blossom, tangerine, rose, followed by ginger orchid, and ylang-ylang. Finally, what makes it linger all night long is the blend of vanilla, musk, and the very on-trend amber.
Cherry blossom & Violet
Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Flora Cherrysia EDT, $123.
Delicate like the cherry blossom that is the hero bloom in this scent, it’s freshened by tangy bergamot, which gives it a cologne-like vibe. Fruity additions such as nashi pear and watermelon, blend well with two of the most on-trend ingredients right now violet and white musk. This combination after a few hours on the skin makes this pretty fragrance subtle, powdery and so addictive.
Peony & Bulgarian rose
Dolce & Gabbana Dolce Peony, $103.
First, you can't ignore the pretty lilac-coloured bottle, then it's the burst of delicate peony that makes this fragrance special. When the spicy pink pepper and tangy bergamot meet nashi pear, and cyclamen petals this fragrance becomes tart and sweet. But it's the Bulgarian rose and freesia with musky yellow plum and woody amber that makes it sweet, stylish and so sophisticated.
Apple Blossom & bergamot
Miu Miu Twist, 30ml, $110.
This new designer scent has an energizing quality thanks to the sweet pink amber accord freshened by tart bergamot. But it's the delicate apple blossom that makes it memorable. The richness of cedarwood, adds the warmth and sexy edge, precisely what the brand wanted for a new Miu Miu perfume with a twist.
Lily, rose and white musk
Narciso Rodriguez For Her EDP Pure Musc, from $94.
White musk is my all time favourite ingredient in fragrance right now. It smells like freshly washed skin and once blended with white flowers, namely lily and rose - it's divine. Like the pure white bottle, you can expect a clean, soft, lingering musky scent that stays on the skin for hours thanks to the addition of cashmere woods as a base.
