THE CULT SENSATION
Black Orchid Eau de Parfum
This perfume knocks it out of the park. With its sensuous blend of truffle, dark chocolate, black currant, incense and sandalwood - it will drape you in a mysterious allure that is unlike anything else out there. In contrast to many lightweight fragrances on the market, this one is a true monster in sillage and longevity. Three sprays will project about an arm's length and last right through the day.
YVES SAINT LAURENT
Black Opium Eau De Parfum
As far as dark orientals go, this perfume raises the bar. Seductive but sweet, it smells as forbidden as a star-crossed romance. The top notes of coffee, jasmine and pear are captivating. Once you get to the drydown, the perfume evolves into an amazing blend of vanilla, patchouli and cedar. Putting it on is like falling into an opulent velvet blanket you won't ever want to leave. Definitely a special-occasion perfume.
ITALIAN COUNTRYSIDE IN-A-BOTTLE
ACQUA DI PARMA
Blu Mediterraneo Bergamotto Di Calabria Eau De Toilette
Bursting with sparkling citruses and spicy ginger, this one transports you directly to the Italian countryside, where groves of lemon trees and lush forests cover the landscape. The concoction is anchored by musk and benzoin, which give the fragrance its creamy backbone. Come for the juicy citruses, stay for the way it makes your imagination take flight.
THE LAST WORD IN ELEGANCE
Bamboo Eau De Parfum
To complement Gucci's 'Bamboo' fashion line, this fragrance was launched to huge fanfare and rave reviews. Casablanca lily is the star of the show, with bergamot and orange blossom supporting. Elegant and graceful without being cloying, this is the perfect spring or summer fragrance to wear when the weather is just beginning to warm up.
THE ASIAN-INSPIRED GARDEN
Le Jardin De Monsieur Li Eau De Toilette
Refresh the senses with the scent of photo-realistic kumquat, jasmine and mint. This bouquet of watery greens calms the soul and evokes a Chinese courtyard complete with lily-covered pond and artfully manicured shrubs. Need a soothing morning fragrance to get you up and energized? This will wake you up without getting screechy or in your face.
Burberry My Burberry Black Eau De Parfum
This bombshell of a perfume kicks ass and takes no prisoners. Amber and patchouli are up right and center jostling for attention while peach, rose and jasmine back them up. The result is a sexy, heady mix that only gets sweeter and more sophisticated as the night wears on. Ladies out for a night on the town and who need something sophisticated will adore this.
THE INTREPID ADVENTURER
Deep Euphoria Eau De Parfum
This exciting addition to the Euphoria line is a whole new take on the spirit of adventure. Combining rose, patchouli, wood, and black pepper, it creates an alluring mix that beckons you. Take a chance. Go out on a limb. Because the whole world is waiting out there. And underneath the top notes, there is the comfort of musk and cascalone - an aquatic note that conjures the ocean.
THE STATEMENT FLANKER
Divine Decadence Eau De Parfum
With its emerald-green python cap and its purse-shaped body, complete with golden chain and gorgeous black tassel, this bottle is a master class in exquisite design. We've never seen a prettier bottle, and this one's worth getting just to display on the boudoir. The scent also wows. With rare saffron, champagne, honeysuckle and hortensia as the main notes, it's a truly unique fragrance.
MADE FOR ROMANCE
Love Story Eau De Parfum
Charmingly shaped like one of the love padlocks on the famous Parisian bridge of the Pont des Arts, this flowery perfume is all about the romance. The scent explores the orange blossom, and pairs it with neroli, musk, and stephanotis to create an idyllic white bouquet. Whether you give it as a gift or you keep it for yourself, it will remind you of the wonder of young love.
GO GREEN FOR SPRING
Miu Miu Eau De Parfum
Miu Miu's first perfume captures the spirit of playfulness and innovation that the brand is best known for. Not only does it look fun to put on, but its fresh combination of rare Akigalawood, lily-of-the-valley, and vibrant jasmine creates a perfume that‘¦s both cheerful and verdant. We love it for spring dates and summer parties, where the lovely green notes will really stand out.
