A wave of fragrances have launched onto the market from some of fashion’s most prestigious fashion houses. The result? A wide range of luxe scents that leave you smelling as good as you look.
Here, we round up the chic fashion fragrances you need to add to your perfume wardrobe…
Dior Joy Eau De Parfum
No brand is as synonymous with the red carpet as Dior – with striking, structured dresses that act as a calling card regardless of who resides at the helm. Combining zesty bergamot, mandarin and creamy sandalwood, this scent has the hallmarks of a classic.
£110 for 90ml, dior.com
Givenchy L’Interdit Eau De Parfum
Hubert de Givenchy created L’interdit – his first perfume, inspired by muse Audrey Hepburn – in 1957. More than 60 years later, it has been refreshed, but notes of orange blossom and tuberose, balanced with earthier vetiver and patchouli, still capture Hepburn’s breezy spirit.
£83.50 for 80ml, boots.com
Prada Moonlight Shadow Eau De Parfum
Never one to conform, Prada’s latest fragrance perfectly encapsulates Mrs Prada’s uniquely offbeat vision for the brand. Heady notes of fig, fruit leather and cedarwood juice make for an indulgent investment piece you’ll always want to wear.
£220 for 100ml, selfridges.com
Chanel Paris Biarritz Eau De Toilette
Since No 5 launched almost 100 years ago, Chanel scents have been instantly recognisable and coveted for life. And, while this bottle stays true to the brand’s timeless heritage, the refreshing mix of mandarin and grapefruit with vetiver and white musk makes it a seriously modern classic.
£97 for 125ml, chanel.com
Jimmy Choo Fever Eau De Toilette
Sweet plum nectar, lychee and grapefruit combine to produce a sultry sensuality befitting the brand that brought sexy back to our feet. Attention to detail is a distinguishing feature of all things Choo, and even the fragrance box is covered in its signature snakeskin.
£79 for 100ml, jimmychoo.com
Calvin Klein Women Eau De Parfum
Calvin Klein is famed for pushing boundaries. After all, they produced a unisex fragrance way before gender fluidity was cool. Raf Simons’s first perfume blends eucalyptus acorns with orange flower petals and cedarwood to align the strong and the sensual.
£78 for 100ml, harveynichols.com
