7 Of The Most Popular Scents, According To Our Scentbirdies:
The fragrance that dethroned Versace Bright Crystal Absolu must be something really special, right? Well, calling Alibi special is an understatement and a great injustice to this magnificent perfume. Here’s why:
A bold step from the feminine and delicate scents bearing the de la Renta label, Alibi makes seduction its mission and carries it out in three exquisite moves. Phase one, insert juicy mandarine. Phase two: introduce it to vanilla orchid. Phase three: Invite a lick of praline to the mix, and patiently wait while the three of them forge the best zesty, powdery, and sweet friendship you’ve come across in a very long, long time.
What makes Bright Crystal Absolu a favorite accessory to a whole tribe of people across the globe? Let’s go over the facts: Chilled yuzu and pomegranate are tart and happy together. Raspberry, peony, and magnolia are uplifting, joyous, and make you put on your pink-colored glasses. Musk, mahogany, and amber are warm, cuddly, utterly peaceful, like Groundhog’s Day (the movie) taking place on the happiest day of your life.
By adding a dose of coconut into its aromatic green opening, Fearless escapes the fresh connotation and turns into a bold, sensual creation that reminds us of summer flings and other fun things. Creamy tuberose and creamier vanilla compete for the sultriest note award, turning the scent more and more gorgeous with each passing moment.
Water-drenched verbena, dripping wet bergamot, and lake-born lotus have the responsibility of conveying the refreshing character of the scent. This is not the earthy scent of petrichor after a summer storm, no. This is Rain the purifies the petals in a flower garden and with it, your soul.
Here at Scentbird, we call the all-American designer duo Badgley Mischka Midas, because everything they touch, turns to gold. Or, rather, in a best-selling scent that our Scentbirdies can’t get enough of. This time they’ve decided to honor her majesty, the rose, by surrounding the note with juicy and woody accords. The result is a perfume that calls out to you like a bed of roses. Sans the thorns. And with your crush waiting there for you.
Like an all-expenses-paid vacation somewhere far where the wifi is weak and the cocktails are strong, Brit Sheer starts with an exotic lineup of notes that keep getting better and better. Yuzu, litchi, pineapple, followed by think-pink peony, and even more exhilarating musk and woods dry-down. Can we please never go back to reality?
Paris as inspiration, strawberry, vanilla, and woody notes are thrown together into the mixer of this master perfumer to intoxicating, unabashedly salacious, and hedonistic effect.
