Need a pick-me-up? Look no further than a fruit fragrance; they’re bound to lift your mood, whether you’re spritzing for everyday wear or a special occasion at night. Here’s our round-up of the very best new fragrances that have hit stores of late.
If your favourite fruit is: Raspberry
If you love this berry topped over Greek yoghurt or crushed in your smoothie, you’ll also enjoy it all day long in the following spritzes that’ll tease the tastebuds.
Great for day: Dior Miss Dior Absolutely Blooming EDP smells just like a fruity sorbet. Discover notes of raspberry, red fruit, pomegranate and blackcurrant, along with a bold heart of rose for balance. It’s feminine, it’s sweet, but totally wearable.
Great for night: Inside the glitzy bottle of Paco Rabanne Lady Million Privé EDP lies a combination of fruit and oriental notes. There’s sweet raspberry, creamy vanilla and a heavy hand of cocoa to top it all off. The result? A decadent yet guilt-free sweet treat that you’ll fall in love with instantly.
If your favourite fruit is: Orange
Known to help with depression by energising your mood, try these revitalising orange-based spritzes that’ll awaken the senses.
Great for day: Chanel No 5 L’Eau is as inviting as an Aperol Spritz; it’s zingy, fresh and floral all at the same time. You’ll spot citrus notes of lemon, mandarin and orange, along with rose in the heart and grounding ylang ylang to round it all off. We’re calling it now - it’s the new classic you have to have.
Great for night: Orange, cherry, rose, saffron and vanilla inside Estée Lauder Modern Muse Le Rouge Gloss EDP may sound like an unlikely match, but surprisingly, they all work together like a delicious fruit punch. The scent is sexy and alluring. Add to cart!
If your favourite fruit is: Fig
Not all fruits are created equal; fruity fragrances may be traditionally sweet, but figs lend themselves well to floral and aromatic scents.
Great for day: The delightful Atelier Cologne Jasmin Angélique has fig in its core, and calls upon supporting ingredients from all around the world; think Sicilian lemons, Chinese Sichuan peppers, Somalian incense and Brazilian tonka beans. Beware, it’s so good that your partner may ask to borrow it too.
Great for night: Calvin Klein One Gold EDT is shouty for all the right reasons. Fig, bergamot, sage, violet, neroli, vetiver, wood, and patchouli come together in this shiny number that’s truly memorable and one that you’ll love to keep on your dressing table.
If your favourite fruit is: Mandarin
Brighten your day with a serving of mandarin in these delectable fragrances that you’ll reach for over and over again.
Great for day: Similar to a refreshing breakfast cocktail, Prada Mimosa EDP is simply delicious. You’ll find a muddle of mandarin essence, star anise oil, rose absolute and mimosa, which will go down nicely for any occasion.
Great for night: Gucci Bamboo EDT brings together orange blossom, Sicilian bergamot, mandarin, pear and ylang ylang in a beautiful medley that’s truly mouth-watering. It smells fruity but it’s not overpoweringly citrus, and the dry down is just as nice as the first impression.
If your favourite fruit is: Peach
The aroma of peaches are undeniably synonymous with spring and summer. Get your dose of the delicious fruit right now with these perfumes.
Great for day: The composition of Hugo Boss The Scent For Her EDP is simple yet complementary; there’s honeyed peach, freesia, osmanthus flower and roasted cocoa that work together to form the most elegant juice that’s sweet (but far from sickly).
Great for night: The sequel to the best-selling Burberry My Burberry EDP is Burberry My Burberry Black EDP. They’re similar in that they share original notes of rose and patchouli, but the additions of delicious peach nectar and invigorating jasmine take this new fragrance to the next level. A serious must-have.
