Trust me, you’ll be smelling so good that he won’t be able to keep his hands off you!
Fresh, clean and light, this perfume reminds me of those innocent teenage years and puppy love. There’s pear, freesia, jasmine, rose, musk, and sandalwood, which lend Lanvin Eclat De Fleurs a soft, delicate, and endearing quality.
This aquatic fragrance with notes of mandarin, pink pepper, peach, lilac, geranium, amber, and patchouli are just the thing you need for a relaxed, laid-back date night to channel that sophisticated, well put-together vibe.
3. Michael Kors Sexy Sunset (Rs 7,442 approx)
This limited edition fragrance is captivating and seductive. Top notes include pear, blackcurrant syrup, freesia and lotus. They give way to peony, gardenia, rose, magnolia and jasmine, which fade into base notes of sandalwood, cedar, vanilla and ambrette. It’s a heady fragrance that is sure to remind you of sunsets at the beach.
4. Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream (Rs 5,278 approx)
By now, I’m pretty sure you’re bored of winter and can’t wait for warmer days. Daisy Dream is the perfect reminder that summer’s not too far away with its top notes of water lily, bergamot, and violet, which fades into honeysuckle on a base of vetiver and musk.
5. Clean Reserve Blonde Rose (Rs 6,089 approx)
I like the clinically clean, neat looking bottle. It’s a welcome relief from the overtly feminine packaging we’re so used to seeing. But make no mistake about its scent. This fragrance is as feminine as they come. This sensual, edgy perfume is lightweight and has essences of peony, sandalwood, rose, jasmine, cedarwood, and musk. It’s perfect for the day as well as for date night.
6. Alaïa Paris (Rs 7,050)
Some scents are so powerful, elegant, and intense they actually make you feel like you are all of the above. The notes: Pink pepper, freesia, peony, and white musk. This complex and mature fragrance does exactly that with its prominent musk and leather notes. It’s as much masculine as it is feminine with it well-blended ingredients.
7. Victoria’s Secret Love Me More Eau De Parfum (Rs 5,266 approx)
A follow up to the original Love Me, Love Me More smells like a warm vanilla-flavoured canelé. The warm eau de parfum has distinct notes of golden grapefruit, French canelé and liquid amber.
8. Beyoncé Heat Kissed (Rs 1,136 approx)
This warm fragrance is as exotic as Queen Bey herself. The top notes are entirely fruity with litchi, mango and pitaya, followed by Red Fury orchid, Sambac jasmine and Moroccan rose oil in the middle notes, and exotic woody notes of African sandalwood and patchouli with a dominant vanilla infusion. It is warm, deep, and intriguing.
9. Annick Goutal Rose Pompon (Rs 10,081 approx)
This heady fruity-floral scent hits all the right notes with raspberry, black currant and pink pepper in the top notes, and rose and pink peony in the middle notes, which fade into white musk, cedar and patchouli, making it a sweet fragrance but not overtly so. The touch of woody and spicy notes makes this perfect for warm weather.
10. Chloé (Rs 3,924 approx)
This fresher, lighter version of Chloé’s classic rose fragrance is an (inoffensive) sweet, dewy fragrance based on white roses. The feminine, sensual, and delicate smell is complemented by bergamot, lemon, magnolia, gardenia, rose buds, cotton flower and musk.
