February calls for fresh fragrances that beat the heat.
These 7 scents could be your next beauty staple.
L’Occitane Terre de Lumiére EDP 50mL
Mmm, this must be what Provence smells like… Terre de Lumiére is a stunning, exotic new fragrance from L’Occitane, “inspired by the Provincial Light”. This fresh fragrance has honey and lavender notes, as well as hints of almond and florals. It’s deliciously rich on the skin on warm days, but also refreshing and light. Not to mention, it’s an Eau De Parfum, so it lasts.
Marc Jacobs Honey EDP 50mL $120
Oh, honey… Aside from the childish-looking bottle (trust me, appearances can be deceiving), this is a gorgeous fragrance with subtle fruity hints of honeysuckle, pear and mandarin orange over the base notes of honey and the woods, which glides effortlessly over your skin. Such a beautiful, natural scent.
Chloé Fleur de Parfum EDP 50mL $130
A spritz of the new edition of the classic Chloé fragrance reveals warm notes of rose, verbena, cherry blossom and rice. Perfect for daytime wear, Chloé Fleur de Parfum will turn you into everyone’s source of envy with its delicate composition of fleurs blooming.
Tom Ford Neroli Portofino EDP 50ml $325
If you’re willing to fork out $325, Neroli Portofino is an excellent summer staple that dazzles the senses with white florals, musk and citrusy goodness. It’s sweet, vibrant and sexy, smells like the sun and above all, it’s long lasting. What’s not to love?
Jo Malone Grapefruit Cologne 30mL $95
A must-have unisex classic that lends its wearer elegance and the fresh scent of grapefruit and spice. It may be a simple concept, but anyone could tell you that Jo Malone Grapefruit evokes the beauty of a blazing summer’s day – a fragrance that turns heads.
Lush Vanillary 30mL $39.95
Don’t be fooled by the price. Lush Vanillary is a long-lasting, mouth-watering scent that emulates – you guessed it – pure vanilla with touches of jasmine and tonka. Oh, and it’s cruelty free. A great choice for vegans and/or anyone looking for a bargain.
Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess 100mL $105
With a bottle like that, this sexy fragrance looks like it belongs on a tanning bed. Bronze Goddess certainly does live up to its name – its heady citrus and coconut notes are the perfect companion to take with you to the beach. Who doesn’t want to smell like summer?
