Blurred Lines

Singapore Tatler - - STYLE -

Come au­tumn, our noses nat­u­rally grav­i­tate to­wards grit­tier, lay­ered scents that re­mind us more of cab­ins in the woods than dainty flo­rals. You’ll love these new gen­der-neu­tral fra­grances Chris­tian Dior Bois d’ar­gent, cre­ated by renowned per­fumer François Demachy, echoes the crisp­ness and ver­sa­til­ity of a sim­ple white shirt with its notes of sen­sual musk and smokey frank­in­cense. Ac­qua di Parma Chinotto di Lig­uria, the lat­est from the fra­grance house’s pop­u­lar Blu Mediter­ra­neo line, is as sen­sual as it is spicy, with hints of man­darin orange, chinotto, gera­nium and musk per­fect for ev­ery­day wear. Chanel Les Eaux de Chanel ParisDeauville takes in­spi­ra­tion from Coco Chanel’s favourite sea­side re­sort on France’s Côte Fleurie, boast­ing top notes of basil leaf, grain and orange rind over a base of jas­mine and patchouli. IIUVO EDP Fonteyn, from the Lon­don fra­grance house founded in 2015, is a trib­ute to the bal­le­rina Mar­got Fonteyn and equally in­spired by au­teur Stan­ley Kubrick. Top notes of rose­mary, worm­wood and car­damom ac­com­pany a rich core of rose, black­cur­rant and vi­o­let. Jo Malone’s Trop­i­cal Che­r­i­moya Cologne packs a punchy first im­pres­sion with its top notes of juicy pear and pas­sion flower, be­fore soft­en­ing into the warmth of Brazil­ian co­pahu resin and creamy tonka bean. Byredo Eleventh Hour, an ul­tra­com­plex fra­grance by the cult Swedish lux­ury house, ex­plores the idea of “things end­ing, a jour­ney to the end of time”, with zesty top notes of ban tim­mur and berg­amot that de­scend into a base of rum, tonka beans and cash­mere wood.
