With rhapsodic roses from Givenchy and Acqua di Parma‘s dreamy Camelia, you’ll be falling for florals and swooning for eye catching flacons from Kenzo and Atkinsons. Isn’t it time to change-up your seasonal scent game?ABEL_VITA_ODOR_PINK_IRIS.png
ABEL VITA ODOR
PINK IRIS
A tingle of Sichuan pepper vibrates toward an expanse of herbaceous basil – and already we know this is no ordinary floral, a warm hum of rose, jasmine and natural musk the beautiful backdrop to a show-stopping iris. Creators of truly accomplished all-natural fragrances, we applaud this Amsterdam-based niche house founded by Frances Shoemack and utilising the talents of fellow New Zealander, perfumer Isaac Sinclair, together showing natural can mean modern, chic and oh-so-wearable.

ACQUA DI PARMA
SIGNATURES OF THE SUN CAMELLIA
A Japanese symbol of purity and everlasting love, the camellia is also known as ‘the Oriental rose’, and is often used in tea ceremonies. And there’s a bright, liquid amber tea-like tinge to the aroma, a soft, sensual freshness that seems to kiss the skin with a radiance of mandarin, softened to a hush with a whisper of magnolia’s luminescent white petals. Just so delicious to wear, even on the hottest of days.

EAU DE GIVENCHY ROSÉE
Is it possible for a fragrance to smell of a colour? Syneasthetically, Eau de Givenchy Rosée is all ballet-slipper-pink hues, a sheer, chiffon-like veil of rose. It starts off soothing, a wave of aqueous water hyacinths washing over you, before the apricot-tinged osmanthus tea takes hold, pretty and whimsical. Freshly blooming roses drip dew onto a blanket of the softest musk, while the delicate use of patchouli gives depth in the end-game.

KENZO_WORLD_POWER.jpgKENZO
WORLD POWER
A launch that sets out to celebrate empowerment, Kenzo have ‘reinvented femininity without florality’, casting flowers aside and instead deploying a combination of contemporary notes to create something delicate yet daring. An aromatic accord often used in masculine scents, is flipped on its axis here, while a sea salt accord creates an unexpected twist that is counterbalanced by an overdose of tonka bean. An intriguingly creative scent for which global domination surely beckons.

ATKINSONS
PLATINUM BLEND
A new addition to the Contemporary Collection, Platinum Blend offers harmonious contrasts between the sharp and the soft. Vibrant elemi and pepper are eased by sweet almond, fresh geranium us soothed with powdery heliotrope and jasmine, while a refined finish of oudh, tonka bean and silken musks leaves you wanting more. An uplifting fragrance to take you from day to night, housed in a flacon as slick as the scent within.
