There are a few new fragrance launches for Valentine’s 2020 and clearly pink is a key colour for the season. Online beauty retailer Escentual.com have picked out five of the best which are sure to dazzle; Jean Paul Gaultier and Paco Rabanne have added new flankers for 2020, Guerlain and Issey Miyake are always popular and Ariana Grande is still doing remarkably well as a celebrity fragrance offering. The perfumes smell as luscious as the bottles look, from floral to woody and creamy vanilla notes, and any of them will make a perfect Valentine’s gift.
The world-famous torso perfume has a new identity, intertwining floral fantasies into the Classique story, and taking them to the next level. La Belle is an exploration of attraction and of all things that seduce, its provocative bottle is the perfect match for its alluring, feminine aroma; one spray of this ‘boozy’ vanilla scent just isn’t enough.
Paco Rabanne Lady Million Empire Eau de Parfum Spray is another flanker from the hugely popular fragrance range. Created by Anne Flipo (original nose behind Lady Million) in collaboration with perfumer Jean-Christophe Herault, Lady Million Empire is a modern chypre with patchouli at its base. Top notes of orange, neroli essence, candied currant, heart notes magnolia, orange blossom, osmanthus and Mirabelle plum, base notes of cognac, white patchouli and white musk. A deliciously bold floral chypre fragrance for women that blends sophisticated fruity sweetness with a smooth cognac accord.
A sweet and woody oriental scent for women, it is the latest flanker fragrance for the best selling Mon Guerlain collection. Created by Thierry Wasser (the nose for many Guerlain fragrances, Dior Addict and Hynose by Lancome). Top notes are lavender, mandarin orange and bergamot, middle notes are iris, rose, jasmine sambac, Tahitian vanilla and Madagascar vanilla, base notes are patchouli, benzoin, licorice, coumarin, Australian sandalwood and white musk. It is a sensuously sweet juice with an oriental woody base.
A new floral fruity fragrance for women. Perhaps not surprisingly given the name, rose scent features strongly at the centre of this fragrance. Top notes are pink pepper, raspberry and pear, middle notes of Bulgarian rose, rose and osmanthus, base notes are amber, patchouli and cashmere wood.
