Godea by Bulgari

Bvlgari-Goldea_zpse1q2sbukGoldea is a tribute to the golden goddess of beauty and sun. Gold is the divine interpretation of splendour of the sun on earth. Unique expression of Bulgari perfumes, Goldea is a sensual and oriental fragrance that pays tribute to the olfactory richness and the infinite nuances of a palette of stylised white musks. A profusion of luscious sweet sparkles mingled with the intoxicating scent of ylang-ylang and orange blossom and, finally, a caressing addictive base note, radiating pure splendour.


Poison Girl by Dior

Dior-Poison-Poison_GirlPoison Girl is the fragrance of a modern-day girl, free and sexy. A delicious trap that instantly poisons and draws out the pleasure to the point of addiction. A bitter-sweet floral with mouthwatering orange that is delightfully swathed in Venezuelan Tonka Bean and blossoms in the biting sensuality of Grasse Rose.


Dolce Rosa Excelsa by Dolce & Gabbana

Dolce_Gabbana-Dolce-Rosa_ExcelsaFollowing the floral tradition initiated by Dolce, the new Dolce Rosa Excelsa eau de parfum captures the boldness and pure spirit of the rose with the essence of fresh petals in bloom. The precious heart of Dolce Rosa Excelsa seduces with two delicate and noble rose notes. Used for the first time in perfumery, the African Dog Rose premieres in this exquisite fragrance creation. This rare note is combined with the enveloping femininity of the Turkish Rose Absolute, highly-prized in perfumery for its olfactive intensity. Iconic, timeless and unique, the rose is a recurrent motif throughout Dolce & Gabbana’s runway collections.


Rose Couture by Elie Saab

Rose Couture, the latest scent signed by ELIE SAAB, echoes the infinite shades of blush found in the couturier’s dress creations from soft yellows to the palest of possible pinks. Lips, cheeks, silk petals and the draping of silk chiffon – Rose Couture raises an iconic floral straight to the luminous heart of couture.


Hidden within the heart of the original ELIE SAAB Le Parfum lies a note of rose petal honey, brightening the perfume’s signature orange blossom scent. French perfumer Francis Kurkdjian chose to magnify this majestic Rose, uplifting but also lightening it into an entirely new Eau de Toilette, Rose Couture.


Pera Granita of Aqua Allegoria collection by Guerlain

1179526The spirit of bergamot with a note of pear. The Aqua Allegoria are among Guerlain’s most emblematic fragrance collections. Their launch in 1999 was a bold gamble. That of taking nature as sole muse and creating a unique olfactory genre: the first collection of eau fraîche in perfumery. The Aqua Allegoria for 2016, is called Pera Granita, translating to pear sorbet. The idea is a clear and bright impression of a summer treat. Pera Granita is a juicy and cheerful eau de toilette, a walk among the garden of the Hesperides.
