We round up some of our favourite fragrances, from new launches to reimagined scents.
Dior Rouge Trafalgar
Reinterpreting the Dior red into a new fragrance, Rouge Trafalgar, perfumer François Demachy concocted a fresh bouquet of strawberries, raspberries, mandarins and blackcurrants. For balance, he added violet leaf absolute, wood, patchouli and musk.
Celine Haute Parfumerie collection
The Celine Haute Parfumerie collection consists 11 unisex scents, each with interesting names chosen by Hedi Slimane from the couturier’s olfactory journal. Eau de Californie is a tribute to his Californian period, while Saint-Germain- Des-Prés and Cologne Francaise hark back to the essence of Paris.
Twilly d’Hermès Eau Poivrée
Hermès introduces Twilly d’Hermès Eau Poivrée, the first flanker of the Twilly scent launched in 2017. The eau de parfum features three main ingredients – pink peppercorn, rose and patchouli – that come together for a softly spicy and vibrant fragrance.
Yves Saint Laurent Libre
Yves Saint Laurent’s Libre scent mixes florals such as orange blossom and lavender with warm notes of neroli and amber to reflect the maison’s masculine-feminine code, recalling the iconic Helmut Newton’s black- and-white shot of a female model in a tuxedo
Calvin Klein Eternity for Men
Calvin Klein’s Eternity for Men Eau de Parfum is the latest version of the original scent which was launched in 1989. While it retains the herbaceous fougère essence, new additions of sage add a pop of freshness, cypress lends a sensual mid-note and a woody suede accord trail at the end gives it an elegant edge.
