Three Sizzling Hot Scents for September
August 25, 2017
Keep the summer sizzling that little bit longer with these luscious and luxurious fragrances…
The Cora by Thameen
The Cora by Thameen which is exclusive to Selfridges, has the most lavish of inspirations – the world’s largest yellow pear-shaped diamond – The Cora Sun-Drop Diamond which was discovered in South Africa and sold for almost seven million pounds, weighing in at 110.3 carats!
The scent, which is every bit as special and captivating as its influence, is a radiant, fresh burst of fragrance with white jasmine, magnolia and wisteria top notes, with spicy undertones, subtle vanilla and a sharp hit of benzoin in the middle notes, giving way to base notes of amber and white musk. This particular scent lingers and gets better over time spent in contact with the skin.
Available from Selfridges, £145 for 50ml.
Pure XS, Paco Rabanne
Available now from Beauty Base , the brand new Paco Rabanne Pure XS is an explosion of raw masculinity which oozes sex appeal and out of control desire.
With purely sexual connotations and a luxurious opulence which one would associate with a powerful, brilliant, successful, irresistible male, the two perfumers behind this fragrance are actually women – Anne Flipo and Caroline Dumur who have conjured up the image of the perfect specimen through their combination of ginger, cinnamon and vanilla. Absolutely bursting with sensuality and success, oriental top note spices give way to musky base notes of hot vanilla and myrrh. ‘On fire’ and exuding ‘excess in its purest state’, it’s the absolute must-have scent for any ‘real’ man.
100ml, £64.50 available from Beauty Base
Exclusively at Selfridges, you can now indulge in the luxurious ‘Live ’n’ Loud’ and ‘Feel ’n’ Chill fragrances from Jusbox Perfumes. The collection has been inspired by a connection between music and perfume and will feature in the “Music Matters At Selfridges’ event until 18th October at London, Manchester and Birmingham stores.
With the perfumes having been inspired by the music world, you’ll find ‘Live ’n’ Loud’ (for women) exactly that, with bold notes which give off a lively energy while boosting the brain cells! With a disco and hip-hop vibe, you’ll be drawn to the bursts of citrus and spice with woody undertones and middle notes of rose and geranium.
By contrast, ‘Feel ’n’ Chill’s’ playlist is a little different! For both men and women and inspired by cool, calm and comforting reggae, blues & soul, this ‘floriental’ creation will give you watermelon and bergamot top notes, with mellowed out middle notes of coconut and woody pine, along with musky basey notes.
Both these scents combine the immersive connection of music and perfume which will evoke hidden emotion and memories, and we can guarantee you’ll be hooked on these amazing scents. With luxurious boxed packaging which makes for extremely stylish packaging, Justbox Fragrances would make the perfect gift.
£140 for 78ml – available exclusively at Selfridges.
