Laura Loves: Autumn Must Haves

Scent is one of life’s great pleasures, a simple spritz can change your mood in an instant. For many years, we have enjoyed floral fragrances, aquatics that bring a wave of freshness to the skin, and citrus scents that bring a little sunshine into our day.

20_hbeu58022200_999_21In recent years a new trend has emerged, that of the mysterious scents. They come sometimes in black bottles, or have the words Noir (black) or Nuit (night) attached to their brand name. One example is the Gwyneth Paltrow endorsed Boss Nuit, a peach, floral and sandalwood fragrance that epitomises sophistication (Boss Nuit 30ml is on special at €17.95, a saving of €32.05 while stocks last).

Calvin Klein Euphoria Essence Female (1280x824)

As we move into the colder months more of these exotic scents are launched. From Calvin Klein we have Euphoria Essence. For her, the fragrance has raspberry and pink pepper to start, a floral scent develops and cashmere wood, patchouli and white chocolate linger on the skin. For him, ivy leaves and bergamot are the first flourishes of the scent, followed by white pepper, suede, amber and Tonka beans. All this pepper, no wonder they’re spicy scents.

(To launch Euphoria Essence or Her €48.30, and For Him €40.60, LloydsPharmacy are giving away a free Calvin Klein tote bag for women or a duffle bag for men with every purchase, don’t miss out).

originalAlso this month some fragrance favourites have new scents on the scene. Mad Potion from Katy Perry is a vanilla-infused musky fragrance (€23.95), while designer label Armani’s new Code Satin (€46.50) has orange, pear, neroli and a chocolate element, divine.
