Want to try a new scent but not sure where to begin? We’ve rounded up a few of the best new fragrance launches for 2015. We may only be two months into the year, but already we’re seeing a major influx of stunning scents.
For the girls:
Avon Far Away Bella Sunset
Enchanting, sparkling and striking, this new scent from Avon comprises jasmine, clementine and sandalwood. It’s reminiscent of a make-believe world, and something about it screams “fairy tale.” It’s soft and flirty, and we’d recommend this for younger ladies with carefree spirits.
Bvlgari Le Gemme Collection
30ml, R1860 each
Inspired by the tradition of High Jewellery, this collection of six fragrances enters the sphere of Haute Parfumerie. The six bottles represent six rare jewels, and are as luxurious and opulent as the high quality raw ingredients used to create them. Pricey, yes, but if you’re looking to spoil yourself or a loved one with a fragrance so beautiful it almost feels like a work of art, this collection is it. Featured above is Amarena, inspired by the tourmaline. Filled with tuberose and centifolia rose, this pinky-red scent is luxurious, sensual and captivating.
Paco Rabanne Black XS Be A Legend Debbie Harry (Limited Edition)
In celebration of the 10th anniversary of Black XS, Paco Rabanne teamed up with rock legends Debbie Harry and Iggy Pop to create two new limited edition fragrances in the Black XS range. Hellebore, black vanilla and patchouli come together to form a truly rock ‘n’ roll feminine fragrance. If you’ve ever sung along to Heart of Glass, this one’s for you.
For the boys:
Joop! Homme Extreme
If you’re looking to win over the ladies, you may want to invest in this little number. Considered the ultimate aphrodisiac, Joop! Homme Extreme is a sensual oriental scent. Sexy notes like black cocoa, patchouli, spices and woods come together to form something provocative and alluring. Definitely not for wallflowers!
Ralph Lauren POLO RED INTENSE
Inspired by racing, this fragrance is designed to capture the thrill of the ride. It’s a powerful and masculine scent, consisting of red ginger, red leather and – yes, you guessed it – red roasted coffee. The sleek bottle was inspired by a red racing car, and even sports a black racing stripe down the middle. If you like strong scents that offer a burst of energy and adventure, this is for you.
Paco Rabanne Black XS Be A Legend Iggy Pop (Limited Edition)
The complementary scent to Paco Rabanne Black XS Be A Legend Debbie Harry, this sleek bottle houses a combination of masculine notes like leather, cinnamon, lemon and cypriol. We love the flip-up lid – it gives the bottle a fun twist and reminds us of a hip flask.
Avon Christian Lacroix NUIT Pour Homme
Fancy yourself a bit of a tall, dark and handsome kinda man? Then you might want to try this fragrant offering. If the dark purple bottle doesn’t give it away, then the intoxicating mix of tobacco, lavender and black violet might. It’s extremely sensual, so give it a spray when your crush is around.
