Gucci’s Mémoire d’une Odeur, Eau de Parfum

Killian’s Rolling in Love Eau de Parfum
Killian’s perfume released this year is one not to miss. It exudes romances while perfectly capturing the glorious and all-consuming sensation of falling in love. Collaborating with perfumer Pascal Gaurin, Killian Hennessy took a different direction than previous scents. A more direct and monochromatic fragrance, Rolling in Love focuses on one emotion but layers different textures and aromas with key notes of almond milk, iris and musk. From the olfactive family of narcotics, this scent has aromas of rose, tuberose, orange blossom and gardenia, depicting the addictive nature of falling in love. The packaging for Rolling in Love also does not disappoint and is probably our favourite on the list. With a beautiful colour scheme of red with golden accents, Rolling in Love exudes luxury with the red-laquered flacon and golden plate with its name engraved manually. Rolling in Love is available in a 50ml refillable spray bottle. W m.bykilian.com
Carolina Herrera’s BAD BOY Eau de Toilette
Last but definitely not least on the list is Carolina Herrera’s BAD BOY Eau de Toilette, a fragrance that expresses duality – highlighting elements of strength and sensitivity, power and empathy, heroism and vulnerability. This fragrance has oriental scent which highlights its opposite notes: the brightness of Sage, Green Bergamot and Pepper is blended with the sensual darkness of Tonka Beans, Cocoa and Amber Wood. BAD BOY expresses, in a conscious way, the light and dark of contemporary man’s nature. A great way to round up our list.
