Spoiler alert. Your favourite fragrance is about to be replaced. We’ve found five of the most desirable scents on the beauty shelves. Spritz away!
My Voice. My strength. So who better to be the ambassador of Valentino Voce Viva than Lady Gaga. This new floral woody fragrance is based on Valentino creative director Pierpaolo Piccoli’s three codes: colour, cool and couture. Colour from Calabrian bergamot top notes, which has been infused with hints of juicy mandarin and spicy ginger. Cool is embodied by the woody and mineral facets of the scent’s crystal moss, milky sandalwood and Madagascan vanilla base notes. Couture is expressed through a bouquet of sunny orange blossom, golden gardenia, and morning jasmine grandiflorum heart notes. You’ll find it at Edgars and Truworths stores from R1300.
Blackberry and pear. Whipped cream and marshmallow. Frangipani and vanilla. All our favourite scents wrapped up in one floral, fruity, pink package. Ariana Grande Sweet Like Candy is perfect for anyone who boasts of having a playful, sweet, fun personality, and who loves gourmand scents. It’s flirty and fabulous, and you’ll find it at takealot.com for R599.
Berdoues Collection Grands Crus Somei Yoshino is a delicate perfume inspired by cherry blossoms … a noble blend of shiso from Japan, jasmine sambac from India and patchouli from Indonesia, which all meld into a harmonious balanced, floral bouquet. It’s light and delicate and utterly feminine … much like the amazing Yoshino cherry tree. R1595 online and in select Foschini and Truworths stores.
