SS23 Fragrance Edit

With the weather warming and the flowers blooming, now is the perfect time to switch up your fragrance game. Spring and summer scents perfectly compliment the lighter, brighter, and more refreshing mood of the seasons and whether you prefer fruity, floral, or fresh fragrances, there are a number of gorgeous options to choose from. Below is an edit of my current favourites...

Edeniste | Jasmin Cruel

First up is Jasmin Cruel, an innovative eau de parfum from Edeniste, a British brand delivering the first generation of active wellness fragrances driven by neuroscience.

Together with some of the world’s leading neuroscientists at the cutting edge of olfactory research, Edeniste has singled out olfactive molecules that have a proven impact on an individual’s olfactory pathways and limbic system. The result is collection of 'scents of wellbeing' scientifically proven to enhance mood.

Jasmin Cruel is perfect for women who like their spring and summer scents on the sensuous side. It is a floral woody musk fragrance formulated with patented Destress Accord to relieve stress. It features top notes of neroli, bergamot, and green notes, heart notes of orange blossom absolute, jasmine absolute, and tuberose, and base notes of musk, sandalwood, and cedarwood.

Jasmin Cruel has impressive lasting power and projection. It is bottled in two sizes, 30ml (£68) and 100ml (£130), and is available from Harrods and Harvey Nichols.

Sisley | L'Eau Revee d'Hubert

L'Eau Rêvée D'Hubert is a refreshing and captivating fragrance from Sisley, the luxury French beauty brand. It pays tribute to Hubert d'Ornano, the founder of Sisley, and his love of gardens and nature.

The fresh aromatic eau de toilette features top notes of mint accord, shiso, and buchu, middle notes of geranium, cedarwood, and papyrus, and base notes of patchouli, oakmoss accord, and ambroxan.

L'Eau Rêvée D'Hubert has impressive longevity and, despite being a light and fresh fragrance, provides enough projection to make an impression without being overwhelming. It comes bottled in two sizes, 50ml (£81) and 100ml (£130), and is available from Liberty and John Lewis.

Versace | Dylan Purple

Dylan Purple is a floral fruity fragrance that makes for the perfect spring and summer scent. It is the creation of Christophe Raynaud, the master perfumer that brought the world Jean Paul Gaultier's Scandal, Lancôme's La Nuit Trésor, and Mugler's Aura Mugler.

The eau de parfum features top notes of bitter orange, pear juice accord, and bergamot, heart notes of purple freesia, pomarose, and mohanial, and base notes of Iso E Super, ambrofix, belambre, sylkolide, and Virginia cedarwood. The gorgeous scent has good projection and great lasting power.

Dylan Purple comes bottled in three sizes, 30ml for £55, 50ml for £75, and 100ml for £99, and is available from Superdrug and lookfantastic.com.

Goldfield & Banks | Southern Bloom

Goldfield & Banks is a luxe fragrance brand that pays homage to the beauty of Australia by creating scents infused with native unexplored plants and flower extracts.

My favourite scent from the brand is Southern Bloom, a floral-woods fragrance that celebrates the scented shrub brown boronia, which is located on Tasmania, the isolated island state off Australia’s south coast. Designed for both women and men, this eau de parfum features top notes of cassis and mandarin orange, heart notes of boronia, coconut, Italian iris, jasmine sambac, and ylang-ylang, and base notes of Australian sandalwood, musk, amber, and vetiver.

It is opulent, sophisticated, and luxurious, and boasts great projection and lasting power. It comes bottled in one size, 100ml (£152), and is available from Selfridges and Fenwick.

Estée Lauder | Beautiful Magnolia

Estée Lauder's Beautiful Magnolia is a floral aquatic fragrance inspired by the emotional rush of an unfolding love story. The romantic scent celebrates the magnolia flower, a symbol of strength and loyalty in love.

The delicate fragrance was crafted by Anne Flipo - the master perfumer behind Givenchy's Irresistible Givenchy, Jo Malone's Basil & Neroli, and Paco Rabanne's Lady Million - and Laurent Le Guernec, the nose behind Sarah Jessica Parker's Lovely and Calvin Klein's Eternity Intense. It features top notes of magnolia petals, maté, and water lotus, heart notes of magnolia oil, solar gardenia, and Turkish rose, and base notes of cedarwood, sandalwood, and illumina musk.

Beautiful Magnolia has a moderate projection and great lasting power. It comes bottled in three sizes, 30ml (£60), 50ml (£78), and 100ml (£101), and is available from Boots and John Lewis.
