We’ve officially reached the point of the spring season where, if you haven’t completed a necessary dose of seasonal cleaning, you may be feeling a sense of staleness. The joy of an annual deep clean is the freedom to replenish your life with things that make you feel fine, fresh and fierce. In 2019, what exactly does it mean to smell chic? Heading into the summer, these are the 5 fragrance trends that will keep your energy and essence on point.
A most universal scent profile, amber finds itself rooted in the category of animalistic. Christian Dior’s Ambre Nuit conveys a nocturnal wave of deep amber with a finish of velvety Turkish rose that deftly affirms that opposites do indeed attract.
The cliché phrase “less is more” has never rung truer than in 2019. A brand that relies and thrives on the basis of sustainability, Phlur has captured that concept in a bottle with Hanami, a blend of aquatic and floral notes, including fig, hazelnut, sandalwood and an assortment of white florals.
Over time, fruit-forward scents have evolved from tacky flavors to saucy, in-season staples. Elixir des Merveilles Eau de Parfum by Hermès combines candied orange with patchouli, creating a subtly sensual squirt of citrus solace.
If there’s one scent profile that is mandatory for every fragrance collection, it is leather. The king of sensuality, Tom Ford has crafted his Tuscan Leather scent to generously share voluptuous qualities of black suede and frankincense with blooming jasmine, adding a sophisticated twist.
If you haven’t begun your journey of going green, the time is now to revamp your style in the morally correct direction. Arriving at a summit beyond just floral, Arquiste’s Boutonnière No. 7 is a complex scent with notes of gardenia jasminoides and citriodora, oak moss, bergamot, lavender, and more.
