#beautynews: our 4 fave floral fragrances

Nikki Yazxhi



{so pretty, we can’t actually pick a favourite}


La Vie Est Belle Bouquet De Printemps is a cleverly composed Fruity Floriental that feels as spontaneous and wonderful as the discovery of a new zest for life. The bouquet features the iconic iris, the flower of happiness, sweetly complemented as always by notes of vanilla. At its side is Jasmine Sambac Absolute LMR, the flower of femininity, delicate and sensual, joined by a scent of green Williams pear.

And at the heart of this composition we find a new lily of the valley accord, a joyous symbol of renewal and deliciously endearing, thanks to a slightly retro, addictive candy accord with accents of vanilla icing sugar and crystallized fruit.

A lovely, soft patchouli-based trail warms this intrinsically charming bouquet, a fragrance which captures all the feminine charms of spring.

Keeping the addictive imprint of Viktor&Rolf’s first, iconic Eau de Parfum, Flowerbomb Bloom’s floral signature becomes more aerial and is defined as fruity floriental. The top of this new Eau de Toilette is sparkling and juicy, led by the delicate pomegranate accord, bergamot and mandarin oils.

The heart is perhaps most notable as it is freshly infused with unexpected pure air molecule – an innovative molecule captured at the top of the mountain ranges of the Pacific Northwest, and recreated synthetically. A subtle touch of living liquid air brings a fresh and aerial mountain breath, elevating the fragrance’s thousand-flower heart and creating a surreal bouquet of scents. The strong, memorable base remains addictive with musks, vanilla and patchouli. This burst of fresh flowers brings upward movement and a breath of fresh air.

3. AERIN Rose Cologne Collection GARDEN ROSE

“There’s something so natural and free about the fragrance of an English garden rose. The exhilarating scent comes from its strength as much as its beauty. It’s like a rush of energy.” – Aerin Lauder

The fresh, floral scent of Garden Rose Eau de Cologne explores the English countryside – filled with the irrepressible scent of wild roses – lively, lush and free spirited. Visions of country estates in Hampshire, with its undulating hills and fields of orchards and farmland guided the creation of this fragrance. Natural green notes of Geranium wrapped around the fresh floralcy of Rose Bouton Sauvage open the scent. Like a bud blooming, the heart of the fragrance unfolds to reveal the splendor of White Bulgarian Rose, the rich, full-bodied Rose Bulgare and lush Rose Centifolia. Together, they capture the irresistible spirit of the English garden rose, blooming boldly in the sun, enhanced with the smooth warmth of Sandalwood and Amber and softened by Musk.

Available at David Jones, MYER and www.esteelauder.com.au.

4. Sisley Paris  IZIA 

A distinctive bouquet with an assertive and sensual character. A modern and feminine composition with a unique and solar floral heart. Izia is a fragrance built around a Rose with a unique scent. A rose like a rendez-vous, that blooms for a short time, only once a year. The starting point of a modern and multi-faceted new fragrance. Imbued with radiant and sophisticated top notes, it seduces with its airy, floral heart and the warmth of a woody base softened with musks.
