Six Beautiful Fragrances to Try Now

Whether it uplifts your mood, brings back old memories or gives you an extra confidence boost there is no denying the allure of a beautiful perfume. Here are six beautiful fragrances to try now.

1. Chanel Coco Noir

The perfect evening perfume, Chanel Noir is deliciously sophisticated and seductive. Rich, heady scents of bergamot, rose and and narcissus make it both alluring and mysterious. We also love the simplicity of the black bottle – our favourite in the Chanel perfume collection.

2. Acqua di Parma Rosa Nobile

On a trip to Milan we had the pleasure of visiting the flagship Acqua di Parma store. This stunning space was the perfect place to test the beautiful Rosa Nobile fragrance. The scent is an elegant ode to the stunning Centifolia rose and to us a perfect daytime scent – delicate, floral and refined.

3. Louis Vuitton Le Jour Se Leve

Would you believe we purchased this perfume by accident? On a recent visit to our local LV store, with plans to purchase the Rose de Vents fragrance, we were served by a very charming Frenchman, however somewhere along the way our communication became crossed and we ended up walking out with Le Jour Se Leve instead. It was an expensive mistake to make however it turns out to be one the best purchases we have made recently. The scent is so sophisticated, and the bottle is also beautiful. A total splurge buy that is worth every penny.

4. Gucci Flora Gorgeous Gardenia

If you are a white flower lover, Gucci’s Gorgeous Gardenia should be on your radar. Hints of brown sugar, pear blossom and jasmine this is a sweet floral scent that will fill your days with joy. Bonus- the relaunched packaging will look beautiful on your bathroom shelf.

5. Diptyque Do Son

One of our all-time ele favorites, this is one of those scents that gets noticed every time you wear it. Feminine and refined notes of rose, iris, African orange flower and musk it is a classic for every collection. It also comes in a handy roller ball design and as a solid perfume, perfect for when you are on the go and need a touch up during the day.

6. Estée Lauder Spellbound

An old school fragrance that is not for the feint hearted, it is a rich floral oriental fragrance that was launched in 1991 and has been a classic ever since. Wear this when you want to make an impression.
