Gift shopping can be challenging and while a gorgeous floral arrangement is always a sweet gesture, why not pamper the special woman in your life with a luxurious floral fragrance instead? These scents from brands such as Chanel, Dior and Gucci can be used far beyond Mother’s Day, so take her on an olfactory journey with these lovely fragrances that are also guaranteed to jazz up any vanity.
01 – Bvlgari Parfum’s latest Omnia by Mary Katrantzou EDP’s (SGD189 for 65 ml) colourful dream bottle isn’t the only thing that will put a smile on your mum’s face. Its floral cocktail echoing the fashion designer’s maximalist style will too, along with an olfactive kaleidoscope where notes of mandarin, gardenia and fig leaf intertwine like an abstract piece of art.
02 – Highlighting the summery side of Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle’s oriental-fruity scent is its limited-edition L’Eau EDT (SGD144 for 100 ml) that’s fresher, fruitier and as light as a perfume mist. Specially created for warmer days, one can enjoy its citrus and floral notes in the form of a generous mist that can be sprayed liberally on the body and hair, leaving an airy and luminous trail.
03 – The unmistakable Dior J’adore has been transformed with headier florals and precious tuberose from Grasse to create J’adore EDP Infinissime (from SGD185 for 50 ml). Described as a sensual sister of the sunny J’adore, the new fragrance leaves an infinite trail with its endless floral bouquet featuring notes of rose, jasmine, ylang-ylang and tuberose that’s refined by the woody accents of a creamy sandalwood. How’s that for a feast for the senses?
04 – An ode to tropical forests filled with sublimating solar flowers, Gucci Beauty’s The Alchemist Garden A Chant For The Nymph EDP (SGD520 for 100 ml) is inspired by the frangipani, which symbolises immortality for the heavenly smell it releases on warm nights. Blended with intoxicating ylang-ylang, sensual tiare flower and soft vanilla, the amber-floral scent can also be accentuated by layering it with perfumed oils and acque profumate from the collection to create a personalised blend.
05 – Tom Ford’s Private Blend Tubereuse Nue (from SGD478 for 50 ml) conjures up fresh petals of night-blooming tuberose and jasmine with supple suede and pepper, with a sensual dry down of soft musk for a luxurious oriental-floral scent. It’s also worth noting that the matte ivory bottle with the architectural look of a chess piece looks like a modern work of art, making it the perfect showpiece for any vanity.
