The Heat is On: 4 Spicy Scents To Wear in Summer 20204 min read
While spicy scents promise to be ideal once the temperatures nosedive, to us, there’s no time like the present to spice up your life with these bold notes. Spray them on…and then spray some more.
DEREK LAM 10 CROSBY A Hold on Me
Derek Lam’s A Hold on Me is no ordinary study in spicy scent; here the heat of the pimento berry essence note is offset with lush tiger lily for a surprisingly cool fragrance that’s refreshing but never fleeting.
Although the fragrance is obscenely fresh and spicy, flickers of the unusual pimento berry immersed in floral elixir turn sophistication on, a key element that intrigues us with its warm, almost gold-like nuance and makes A Hold on Me so very… addictive.

CARNER BARCELONA Sweet William
Concocted by perfumer Rodrigo Flores-Roux, the mastermind behind the world’s happiest perfume a.k.a. Clinique Happy, Sweet William contains the spiciest, sultriest mix of notes we’ve tried in a long time.
Warm white pepper strikes an extraordinary, but sophisticated friendship with tobacco blossom, enhancing the intense energy of the cardamom note, from its earthy root to its nose-tickling vibrancy. Carnation and vanilla add a coat of allure. Hot, aromatic, and electric, it’s date-night perfect.

HISTOIRES DE PARFUMS 1969
The combination of dark chocolate, coffee, and flavorful peach reads like the perfect confection recipe, but in the world of Histoires de Parfums, it’s the backbone of probably the raciest perfume out there.
Bitter chocolate, a note rarely used in perfumery is the scent’s X factor. It tapers the honeyed peach on top, adds a dose of excitement to the earthy, spicy mix at the center, and beautifully contrasts the patchouli and musk mix underneath. Florals only make a cameo appearance here, so if you want to experience a scent where orientals reign supreme, this is your winning pick.

COMPTOIR SUD PACIFIQUE Vanille Extreme
Vanille Extreme calls to mind the perfect cocktail enjoyed at the end of an excruciatingly long day. An homage to the queen of spices, the vanilla, the scent is all about sweet chunks of sugar cane dipped in frothy milk, and a heliotrope to stir things up, a fragrance that surely says let’s have some fun.
