Now, I don’t know about you, but there’s something extra intriguing about new perfumes; male or female. We’re all on the hunt for a fragrance that will make us smell incredible, unique and quite possibly that little bit mysterious, so if you’re tempted to try something new, here’s 7 of the best new perfume launches that you need to try ASAP…
New Fragrances For Her
Common trends: Pink juices, rose nuances, lighter strengths
#1 The Oriental Obsession
Mugler Alien Fusion Eau de Parfum Spray
Fragrance family: Floriental
White floral fans, rejoice. Your favourite Alien perfume is back, but this time, it’s had a fresh update, ready to wear for spring. Still featuring the iconic Alien fragrance note of white amber that we all associate with Mugler, Fusion swaps its jasmine core for a glazed tuberose, ginger twist.
#2 The Style Statement
Carolina Herrera Good Girl Legere Eau de Parfum Spray
Fragrance family: Floral
Imagine your favourite Good Girl fragrance, now dip it in creamy caramel. Well, that’s what you get with the new Legere. Elegant enough for the day, but tempting enough to last the night, this confidence-boosting fragrance uses the power of white florals and tonka bean to make you stand out for the right reasons.
#3 The Candid Cherry
Emporio Armani In Love With You Eau de Parfum Spray
Fragrance family: Fruity Floral
Redolent of the exciting feeling of butterflies, Armani’s In Love With You perfume sparkles. Just like a fizzy cherryade, this syrupy signature is sweet and addictive, but as the perfume warms on your skin, the warmth of patchouli creates a rosy-jam dry down that’s deliciously understated.
#4 The Shy Rose
GUERLAIN Mon Guerlain Eau de Toilette Bloom of Rose
Fragrance family: Fresh Floral
Rose fragrances are having a moment, and GUERLAIN are here for it. Subtle, soapy and utterly sophisticated, for Bloom of Rose, GUERLAIN have pared back the creaminess of vanilla in favour of the freshness from crunchy apple and zesty mandarin; which is then all tied beautifully together with elegant threads of silken rose for a feminine finale.
#5 The Subtle Show-Off
Lancome La Vie Est Belle En Rose L’Eau de Toilette
Fragrance family: Floral
Hailed as the best La Vie Est Belle flanker to ever grace Escentual, La Vie Est Belle En Rose is a sugared rose scent that’s subtly sweet, but feminine and empowering. A fresher, lighter interpretation of the iconic La Vie Est Belle, this new floral addition still has everything we love about the original, but with a rosier edge.
New Fragrances For Him
Common trends: Fresh, green notes. Lighter interpretations with staying power.
#6 The Fresh Favourite
Mugler Alien Man Fusion Eau de Toilette Spray
Fragrance family: Spicy Woody
Alien Man Fusion is what I call a real spring/summer scent with staying power. A sportier take on the original Alien Man, Fusion plays with hot cinnamon and cold leather facets to bring you a fresh (subtly spicey) fragrance that’s still recognisably Mugler.
#7 The Spicy Signature
Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb Night Vision Eau de Toilette Spray
Fragrance family: Fresh Aromatic
If you love the classic Spicebomb aftershave, the new Night Vision scent from Viktor and Rolf should be your chosen signature this spring. Intense, and intriguing, but fresher than Spicebomb Extreme, green sage simmers with black spices to bring you a bracing burst of invigoration.
