Fragrance Finds for the Season
Now that the weather is warming up it’s time to change up our signature scents. The latest fragrances for the season include something for every taste—seductive musks, spicy florals and sweet, candy-inspired splashes. Here are some of our top picks.
Chanel Misia EDT (75ml), $180
Steeped in nostalgia, Misia is named after Gabrielle Chanel’s friend and confidant Misia Sert. As Misia was a well-known patron of the arts, the fragrance was inspired by the beauty products theatre performers would use backstage (and sure enough you can smell the vintage quality to the ingredients). This feminine and slightly musky “floriental” features May Rose, Violet and hints of leather. Available at Chanel Boutiques and Chanel beauty counters at Holt Renfrew.
Dolce & Gabbana Dolce Floral Drops EDT (50ml), $106
How does the design house of Dolce and Gabbana describe its latest fragrance? Like spring in Southern Italy captured in a bottle. White Amaryllis, papaya flower, white daffodil and energetic bursts of Neroli leaves make this fresh, sweet scent perfect for warmer days ahead. Available at Hudson’s Bay, Holt Renfrew, Shoppers Drug Mart Beauty Boutique, Sephora and Ogilvy.
Azzaro Pour Elle EDP (75ml), $88
Azzaro Pour Elle is a sultry and glamorous perfume that speaks to the confident woman. The female counterpart to Azzaro’s popular men’s fragrance, this scent captures the sexy sophistication of Azzaro’s couture garments. In fact, the bottle design is inspired by a Parisian showroom filled with mirrors. It features notes of cardamom, rose, lily and cashmere wood. A beautiful fragrance for day or night. Available at Hudson’s Bay, Shoppers Drug Mart, Jean Coutu, Sears, Familiprix, Brunet and Uniprix.
Nina Ricci Les Délices de Nina EDT (75ml), $86
Nina Ricci’s newest fragrance takes us back to the sweet treats of childhood. The bubblegum pink bottle is covered in melting “caramel”–a hint at what kind of fragrance is stored inside. This tangy and fruity scent features lemon, tangerine, strawberry, caramel and praline, but please remember that it’s for wearing and not for eating! Available at Hudson’s Bay.
