STAR SCENTS

The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - OPENERS -

PRADA CANDY L’EAU A lighter ver­sion of the orig­i­nal Candy fra­grance (pretty much the Brit­ney Spears of the scent world) this one has the ad­di­tion of cit­rus notes on top which serves to freshen it up for sum­mer. Its fa­mil­iar base of musk, ben­zoin and caramel will have food lovers sniff­ing at their pulse points and con­sid­er­ing a taste test. 50ml, $116, Myer and David Jones. GIOR­GIO AR­MANI SI This one is for the woman who fan­cies the idea of turn­ing into Sophia Loren for a day. This is the woman with the am­ple booty and tiny waist belted into a red dress. A heart of dark cas­sis nec­tar sur­rounded by notes of rose, freesia and light musky wood on a base of patchouli will hit a night event with im­pact. 50ml, $100, Myer and David Jones. BAL­MAIN IVOIRE This one is the Cate Blanchett of “fumes” (as they are known in fra­grance-lov­ing cir­cles). A bit fierce and envy-in­duc­ing but un­der­neath it all, just clas­sic, clean and down­right stylish. It is one you’ll fall more in love with as the day goes on. Notes of rose, jas­mine, iris and ylang ylang, all wrapped up in a pow­dery, soapy smell. 50ml, $110, Myer.
