With the summer season still going strong — not to mention the new Songkran dates coming up this long weekend! — it’s definitely prime time to go for scents that are refreshing, airy, playful, and crisp. Below are some of our top picks.
A dove taking a flight marks the fragrant creation of Bond No. 9. The idea behind the Scent of Peace was to bring love and reconciliation worldwide. Michael Almairac, the creator of the perfume, placed spicy, green, fresh grapefruit and blueberry at the top of this female woody floral fragrance. The heart opens with fresh and gentle nuances of lily of the valley, while the juicy and ripe notes of the base consist of musk and cedar.
The new Miss Dior Eau de Toilette is a thrilling and refreshing floral whirlwind: A mad waltz danced around Grasse Rose and a veil of Lily of the Valley as light as a tulle petticoat. Grown in the fields of Grasse by the exclusive partners of the house of Dior, the rose is harvested each year in May by hand in keeping with tradition and to preserve all the properties of this precious, delicate flower. The radiant Miss Dior is a never-ending whirlwind of life and love.
As passionate as a sunset, mandarins make up the iridescent fragrance of California Dream. Louis Vuitton Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud holds on to the moment and captures the resonance of a sunset. The ardent mandarin is consumed by joyfulness, tempered by the diaphanous ambrette and its subtle warmth. The evening gets underway as graceful, vanilla-tinged benzoin envelops the skin in an affectionate balm, as light as a summer night.
Issey Miyake’s L’Eau D’Issey is a sunny, feminine fragrance with fruity floral scents. The top notes are lychee and grapefruit. These fresh scents harmonize beautifully with the punchy passion fruit and guava scents that form the middle notes. For the base notes, rounded woody scents and vanilla melt together to create a warm, sun-kissed fragrance. The packaging is also specially designed in a collaboration between two young French designers, Tyrsa and Alice Auboiron, featuring an iconic bottle and eye-catching bright lettering.
Dolce Shine is inspired by the moment between winter and spring when the first rays of sunlight trickle into the gardens of the Amalfi Coast, a place that is dear to Dolce & Gabbana. The fragrance is sunny, cheerful and irresistibly fresh with a fruity floral scent that bursts with glorious Italian joy of life. Colorful juicy mango and bright jasmine combine with sun-drenched blond woods to create a sunny fruity floral fragrance.
