Summer is coming, and without a doubt, one of the favourite seasons for many. With the arrival of the heat, apart from the change of wardrobe, it is also the time to change perfume. That means moving from darker and cosier scents to fresher and citrusy alternatives inspired by this summer season. From the HIGHXTAR. team we propose you 10 fragrance alternatives to update your scent this season.
LOEWE Paula’s Ibiza Eclectic is the name of the second fragrance launched this season. A woody, floral and gourmand Eau de Toilette. Orange blossom absolute and wild, nocturnal jasmine sambac combine with fresh notes of mandarin and black pepper from Madagascar. Exotic frankincense essential oil and Lebanon resin linger in the heart, while gourmand notes of coconut and vanilla are accented by rich ylang ylang, musk and soft, woody Australian sandalwood.
Byredo’s latest fragrance presents a scent centred on perfumery’s rarest raw material, the vanilla pod. A fragrance inspired by the ritual of night and flowers that reveal their most intense scent at twilight. The smoky, syrupy scent of vanilla bean combined with earthy, dark notes of cashmere wood, cistus and musk. An intoxicating blend. A perfume extract distilled into a pure essence using time-honoured techniques so that it radiates its scent through body heat and lingers for many hours.
It smells like pure summer. It is exuberant and smells of the sea, salt, light rocks, marine vegetation… It is an experience of summer flowers and citrus fruits. Created by François Demachy to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Hotel Cap-Eden-Roc, this fragrance is pure luminosity. If the sun, the breeze, the scents of flowers and marine pines could be captured in a bottle, this would be it. Day or night, its scent melts into your skin to fill it with the most refreshing and pure sweetness, thanks to its sunny trail of white flowers, its marine notes and its aromatic accords.
Eau de Toilette Under The Lemon Trees from Maison Margiela’s Replica collection is a woody floral citrus fragrance with accords of Kalmansi, coriander and musk. The fragrance is inspired by the memory of a sunny getaway in the countryside, evoking the feeling of taking a nap under the trees of an ancient villa, where fresh scents of cypress and lemon mingle with the warm Mediterranean breeze. This peculiar fragrance is born from the contrast between fresh citrus notes and green notes of coriander, mate absolute and tea leaves.
Light Blue by Dolce & Gabbana is a Floral Furtal fragrance launched in 2001. Lemon and crisp green apple come together in this fresh, incisive and tangy fragrance. In the heart, carnation elegantly unfurls its fruity floral facets, along with a heady blend of jasmine petals, bamboo and white rose. In addition, there is also a touch of Sacilia lemon, granny smith apple, wild hyacinth, cedarwood, amber and musk.
Alien Goddess, the new perfume from MUGLER, is a floral, ambery, woody creation that leaves a faceted trail that will captivate your senses with the most extraordinary ingredients from the perfumers’ palette. The fragrance opens with an Italian bergamot scent; in addition to the notes of Grandiflorum jasmine and Bourbon vanilla with balsamic tonalities. In addition, MUGLER’s concept of refilling fragrances indefinitely anywhere changes the vision of luxury and services.
The new limited edition TOUS Eau de Toilette, TOUS Gems Party is an explosion of colour, flowers and fresh notes. Created by perfumer Corinne Cachen, this floral, fruity and oriental fragrance is pure vitality and joy. Inspired by Turquoise, the precious stone of good vibes and positive energies, Gems Party is a true elixir of good luck and positivity. The fragrance combines Tropical Fruits with other sweeter and citrus fruits such as Lemon, Pineapple, Papaya and Peach. At its heart, Flowers reign with Jasmine, Mango Blossom and Peony. To finish, a vanilla base with a strong addictive character.
This new fragrance is characterised by contrasting notes that reflect the harsh ochre soils of Tuscany and is part of the Les Souvenirs collection by Goutal. It is a warm, deep, intense and powerful fragrance. It is entirely dedicated to emotions and memories, like the scents that moved Annick, its creator. Bois d’Hadrien combines the elegance of cedar with the resinous accents of pine and notes of fir and incense. A citrus concentrate matured under the Mediterranean sun supported by cypress wood.
PARIS-VENISE is inspired by the city of art where East meets West. With its narrow streets and canals lined with Italian palaces, Venice is one of Gabrielle Chanel’s favourite cities. With its sensual freshness, PARIS-VENISE evokes the captivating exoticism of this mythical city. An eau de toilette with sensual writing. The beauty of the contrast between a fresh and luminous neroli scent and the enveloping warmth of an amber accord with notes of vanilla and tonka beans.
It is the new fragrance in the Chloé Signature collection. A vegan fragrance that exudes a sensual, floral spirit with citrus base notes for a woody finish. Its ingredients are 100% naturally sourced and ethically sourced, even the alcohol is sustainably derived for an enveloping floral freshness that lasts all day. Organic rose is Naturelle’s main ingredient and is complemented by neroli from Morocco. Citron essence blends with blackcurrant, while base notes of cedar essence add a woody facet.
