They’re sweet without being sickly

If you find that a fruity fragrance is too perky for your liking, then it might be worth looking into a fruity floral blend. Typically consisting of a juicy fruit like peach, raspberry and apple, mixed with a light or grounding floral like peony, rose and jasmine, a fruity floral scent is super easy to wear, and one that all ages will love. Here are eight new fruity floral perfumes hitting counters now that we highly recommend.
Acqua Di Parma Peonia Nobile Special Edition EDP
Just by looking at the pretty bottle, we knew it’d be something we’d love. And lucky for us we were on the money when we spritzed it - this raspberry, black pepper, iris, jasmine, rose and patchouli fragrance will brighten your day.
Bottega Veneta Eau Sensuelle EDP
Bottega Veneta’s version of a fruity floral fragrance is delicious, yet still refined. Take a whiff and spot notes of peach, gardenia, Indian jasmine, vanilla, patchouli, and even the animalistic character of leather - which is a nice nod to what the Italian brand is most famous for.
Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Bloom EDT
The latest from the innovative fashion house is Flowerbomb Bloom; a fragrance that binds sweet pomegranate and mandarin with bergamot, vanilla, and patchouli. If you normally find the regular Flowerbomb too heady, we’re sure you’ll find this lighter spritz much easier to wear.
Calvin Klein Deep Euphoria EDT
This EDT is a lighter and airier version of what you’d remember of the spicy Deep Euphoria scent. Built with waterlily, cassis leaves, jasmine rose, musk and sweetened with juicy pear, it's a delightful fragrance that’s great to wear to any occasion.
Gucci Flora Gorgeous Gardenia Limited Edition EDT
If you’re obsessed with floral fragrances, then you’re going to want to snap up this collector’s must-have immediately. This version carries Gucci Flora Gorgeous Gardenia EDT’s same juicy notes of red berries, white gardenia, patchouli and a touch of brown sugar, but is housed in a limited edition bottle with a darker juice colour and a floral box that you’ll want to keep forever.
Dior J’Adore in Joy EDT
What’s not to love about a Dior fragrance? The latest iteration of the best-selling J’Adore scent has the same peach and jasmine notes that we have all come to love, along with an interesting addition of salt to spark the senses. We think this spritz is the perfect reminder of summer days.
Michael Kors Collection Sexy Blossom EDP
This new spritz from Michael Kors is unapologetically bright and fun to wear. Featuring a blend of lychee with rose, peony, orchid, freesia, ambrox, musk and sandalwood, it’s a scent that evokes a spring garden and isn’t sickly sweet.
