Can you feel that whisper of autumn on the breeze? Some trees have even – very sneakily – started changing their leaves. Inspired by nature, we thought a change was in order for us too, and went off to find a new signature fragrance. With great stores at Fourways Mall, like Edgars, Foschini and The Body Shop, as well as Escentuals at Cedar Square, we’re really spoiled for choice. These are our favourite warm scents for cooler days.
Stop by The Body Shop and try out Bowhanti. Within seconds you’ll be transported to a tropical rainforest. This spicy woody fragrance is inspired by the Wacapou tree and combines a smoky blend of patchouli and incense for mysterious seduction.
Dark and mysterious
Clinique Aromatics in Black is the epitome of gorgeous, dark and mysterious – and that’s just the bottle. Inside is just as alluring. The base notes of myrrh, tonka bean and vetiver entwine seductively with exotic florals and succulent fruit. The heart of this fragrance is jasmine and neroli, on top of which float plum leaf, pink grapefruit and bergamot. Oh!
Sexy and sophisticated
We know and love Marc Jacobs scents for their sweetness and openness – just think of the sunshiney Daisy. But Decadence is a sassy fragrance that is perfect for a more mature woman. Inside this handbag styled bottle, you’ll find a perfume with a heart of jasmine and orris root. The top notes are saffron, iris and plum, while it all rests on a base of liquid amber and papyrus wood.
All the exclamation marks!!!!
The hot pink bottle of Joop! Wow! for Women shows you everything you need to know about this fragrance. With top notes of rose and wild raspberry, heart notes of peony and a base of patchouli and white musk, this is a warm and sensual blend of florals and woods. The people who are lucky enough to snuggle you will definitely say, “WOW!”
