I NSIDER'S GUIDE / ENTRE NOUS A Perfumed Reminder of Paris Le doux parfum du Souvenir de Paris
This season four of our favourite perfume brands will be your scented souvenir of your trip to Paris, sensory reminders of those precious moments spent along the Seine and walking through the cobblestone streets of the French capital, rustling through the beautiful fallen autumn leaves. Mon Guerlain, the latest scented offering from French house Guerlain, created by the talented nose Thierry Wasser, embodies femininity and seduction. The sweetness of Tahitian vanilla mixed in with soothing lavender and the freshness of jasmine come together to bring a perfume that is both feminine and bold, creating a signature scent for all women with each note playing differently on each lady’s skin with a unique result for each.
For gentlemen who love the smell of fresh notes, and for the ladies who love a hint of woody notes on their men, Givenchy’s limited edition Gentlemen Only eau de toilette is this season’s must scent. With notes of mint and citrus mixed in with woody sage, the French house’s new scent will awaken all the senses.
Perfume house Comptoir Sud Pacifique specialises in niche scents that are inspired by the four corners of the world, bringing appreciators of unique perfumes an interesting range of unisex scents. One of the house’s latest additions is Pomelo Fizz, which brings tangy grapefruit, sweet mandarins and musky amber together, creating an explosive scent that recalls summers by the water with fizzy cocktails in hand.
Another house that focuses on unisex scents is Atelier Cologne with the house’s noses taking us to California with their Clémentine California cologne. Sweet clementine from California and mandarin from Italy are deliciously mixed in with pepper from China and basil from Egypt to bring cologne lovers a sweet and spicy scent that will linger on the skin.
