Five scents to buy now!

Wednesday, 28 May 2014


If you’re reading this you’re probably on the market for a new scent, right? Well here are our five new finds this month. It may be something with amber or it may be the new addition to La Vie Est Belle. Whatever it is, here are our choices.

Bvlgari Omnia Indian Garnet, 40ml, EDT, R805
Created around the unique mandarin garnet, this new scent will take you on an olfactory journey of the incredible India. With notes of mandarin, Indian tuberose and amber this is definitely a strong feminine scent full of energy.

Lancôme La Vie Est Belle, 50ml, EDT, R865
A new addition to one of my favourite scents of all time. This time it’s L’Eau de Toilette. If you like to spritz something pretty, sweet and very feminine then this scent is for you. With notes of magnolia, almond, patchouli and spun sugar, life is surely beautiful!

Fendi L’Acquarossa, 50ml, EDP, R1180
Fendi is all about femininity. And this season it’s about the passionate woman, hence the red bottle chosen for their new scent. “Rossa” meaning red and “Aqcua” meaning water, together symbolise life and the great heroines of today. Tangerine, lantana flowers and red cedarwood from Texas, are notes that definitely stand out from the rest.

Narciso Rodriguez For Her Amber Musc, 100ml, EDP, R1845
This is the 5th line extension to the Narciso family called Amber Musc. Dressed in a beautiful bottle, this scent is the ultimate luxury. Mystery and ultimate feminity Amber Musc has notes of black patchouli, oud wood accord and a deeper accord made up of leather for a velvety sensation. If you are looking for the perfect winter scent, then this it!

Fantasy Britney Spears The Naughty Remix, 50ml, EDP, R425
Britney decided to highlight certain notes from her original Fantasy fragrance and has launched Naughty and Nice. Naughty is daring and mysterious with notes of jasmine petals, white chocolate orchid and sensual woods to name a few. If you’re a Britney fan, and are after something very sweet, then try out her new renditions.

    I always say it’s important to make sure that a fragrance bottle is beautiful and attractive. That’s how you get peoples attention. Yes the scent should be amazing but we first view the bottle and that is what keeps us glued to the product.

    I got a little sample of the Lancome fragrance from a promo and it’s such a beautiful, elegant fragrance. Something I’d wear with a pretty dress to a Sunday lunch, but it’s not sweet or overpowering either. It’s on my fragrance wishlist now.

    Narciso Rodriguez For Her Amber Musc is the bottle I liked the most, when I saw the photo. Musc is a fragrance I like. But oh, my, I’ll have to ask someone else to buy it.

    Britney’s bottles are always cute. I can’t say I like the scents much. The Lancome looks similar to the Hugo Boss Femme except it has the ribbon. I love fancy perfume but sometimes the thought of dropping the bottles and breaking them can give you a heart attack, especially since its content is so expensive.

    I have seen Narciso Rodriguez For Her do the rounds on the blogs. It’s the one that appeals to me the most. However, at that price, it’s definitely going onto a birthday wish list!
