It’s not easy to find the fragrance that suits you perfectly. Your perfume is kind of like a business card. That’s why it’s important to find out which perfumes you like. Are you more into floral fragrances or woody scents for example, or maybe something else?
I no longer believe that there are perfumes that you can only wear in summertime and others that you can only wear in wintertime. When you’ve finally find your match, you can often wear it both in the summer and winter months.
This is my personal top 6 of fragrances that you can wear all year round, no matter which season we’re in.
Chanel Chance – Three Moods, Shimmering Scented Gel Trio
Chanels fragrance launches are always impressive. These 3 cute little containers contain 3 gel perfumes. You can easily put them in your handbag and use them anytime throughout the day. You can choose from Chance Eau Tendre, Chance Eau Fraîche and Chance Eau Vive and match your eau de toilette to your mood. Travelproof trio of shimmering scented gels, available in Chanel boutiques, € 120,00.
2. L’Occitane en Provence – Terre De Lumière Eau de Parfum
This fragrance by L’Occitane is addictive and versatile. A surprising blend of sensual sweetness and aromatic freshness. Terre Lumière is L’Occitane’s first gourmand fragrance. Available in L’Occitane en Provence boutiques, € 89,00. Don’t forget to visit the recently renewed boutique in Maasmechelen Village!
3. Tom Ford – Velvet Orchid
Velvet Orchid by Tom Ford is an extremely feminine fragrance. A true oriental, floral fragrance, with a blast of cool freshness, dramatic petals, honey and rum. This perfume suits any occasion, but I myself tend to wear it most often at parties. Available in cosmetics stores, € 102,00.
4. Carven – L’Eau de Toilette
Not only do I love their fashion collections, I also like their perfumes. This eau de toilette is perfect if you’re not really into heady fragrances. Its composition is light and exudes a pure freshness. Available in cosmetics stores, € 45,90.
5. Etro Profumi – ManRose Eau de Parfum
ManRose is a scent both men and women can wear. The fragrance combines a fresh note of Calabrian bergamot with spices like Szechuan pepper and cardamom, softened by floral notes of rose and geranium. The fragrance ends in a smoky, woody mix of patchouli, vetiver, leather and musk. A bold combination, in my opinion, but the result is fantastic. An intriguing scent that you can’t get enough of. Available at Parfuma, € 130,00.
6. Thierry Mugler – Aura Mugler Eau de Parfum
Aura Mugler is a fragrance for women looking for something original. The perfume is composed of 3 hearts: the beating heart with an overdose of Tiger Liana, a green, vegetable heart sustained by a hefty dose of rhubarb leaf and an animalic heart with vanilla and Wolfwood. More woody than floral, but 100% irresistible. Available in cosmetics stores, € 80,95.
