Rochas Girl Eau de Toilette 100ml (R1599.00)
The packaging features the phrase “Spray good feel good” and never have truer words been spoken! This citrus, woody, floral fragrance features star ingredients neroli extract, whose relaxing properties have been proven by neuroscience (and it happens to smell great, too). Other notes include pink pepper, orange blossom, jasmine, vanilla and sandalwood. The scent is light and delicate, and undeniably uplifting. We’re seeing more and more fragrance houses taking a green approach to beauty (yay!) and Rochas is one of them.

Marc Jacobs Perfect Eau de Parfum 100ml (R1999.00)
Can we have a moment for the incredible design of this packaging? We are absolutely in love with the bottle. And it’s the absolute perfect fit for this scent – playful and unexpected, Perfect by Marc Jacobs is a floral scent that celebrates optimism, self-love and originality. It was inspired by Marc Jacobs’ mantra: “I am perfect as I am,” which is symbolized by a tattoo of the word “perfect” on his wrist. And like his tattoo, Perfect is all about embracing and expressing one’s true self without the fear of other people’s opinions, or self-doubt. The scent is modern, bright and feminine. It opens with juicy notes of rhubarb and bright daffodil that reveal a comforting heart of almond milk. The fragrance finishes with a soft dry down of cedarwood and cashmeran. Perfect is nothing you would expect and everything it needs to be – we like to think of it as harmoniously unconventional.

Viktor&Rolf Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum 100ml (R2720.00)
Flowerbomb may not be a new scent, but it’s become a modern classic. Since its launch in 2005, the spicy, sweet, floral explosion was instantly a hit. Today, the scent is as popular as ever, and it’s safe to say it’s earned its place in the fragrance hall of fame. Offering an explosive floral bouquet, the essence of thousands of flowers gives rise to an ultra-feminine, delicious and sensual fragrance. The scent comprises a bouquet of tens of cattleyas, hundreds of sambac jasmine, thousands of freesia, and millions of rose petals enriched by an addictive scent of patchouli and vanilla.
