Terre d’Hermès Eau Givrée
Eau de Parfum 50ml, £72
First there was Terre d’Hermès. Now there is Terre d’Hermès Eau Givrée. Created by Christine Nagel, Hermès’ master perfumer, this new fragrance sets out to capture the smell of the earth waking up from a morning frost. Building on the original fragrance’s woody character, Nagel has added sharp citrus notes, cut with the freshness of juniper berry and a spicy kick of Timut pepper. The result is a fresh, but powerful fragrance housed in a refillable bottle.
Eau de Parfum Eclat
Eau de Parfum, 100ml, £95
The supremely elegant Italian label has released a luminous new scent that epitomises dazzling summer mornings in Italy. The long-lasting scent is crafted from an intoxicating blend of sustainably sourced ingredients, including sandalwood from New Caledonia, frankincense from Somalia, pink peppercorn from the Indian Ocean, rose from Turkey and patchouli from Indonesia. The sharpness of the grapefruit is given a depth and resinous finish thanks to the frankincense and creamy sandalwood, allowing the scent to evolve throughout the day’s wear.
Dries Van Noten
Eau de Parfum, 100ml, £195
In keeping with Dries Van Noten’s interest in clashing elements, this new fragrance from the Belgian fashion designer is a complex and intriguing mix of green, earthy ingredients and musky notes. A base of cannabis and patchouli ground the scent, allowing vetiver, musk and sage incense to playfully come through. The unique bottle is crafted from bio-sourced woodland deep glass.
Acqua di Parma
Eau de Cologne, 50ml, £84
This light and bright cologne is intended to inspire confidence, joy and energy. A burst of botanical freshness, thanks to citrusy top notes of lemon and bergamot, is layered with spicy pink berries and black pepper and an aromatic heart of cedarwood, rosemary and shiso, the earthy and slightly spicy herb native to the mountains of China.
Parfums de Marly
Eau de Parfum, 125ml, £295
A refined offering from the luxurious Parisian perfumer, Haltane is inspired by the debonair gentlemen of the 18th century who would gather in the Chateau de Marly. A contemporary take on traditional French perfume making, this bright, herbal perfume is a zingy summer spritz. Fresh, crisp top notes of bergamot, lavender and clary sage is balanced with soft, spiced heart notes of saffron, cedarwood, praline, oudwood. A base of leather, patchouli, vetiver, musk and natural agarwood grounds the perfume in a sumptuous, warm mood that allows the scent to evolve throughout the day.
