Choosing the perfect scent is not just about finding one that smells pleasant; it should also reflect your personality.

Here are a few classic fragrances that will fit different attitudes and lifestyles.

Feminine flair

Paco Rabanne’s Fame Eau de Parfum invites you to discover the essence of Parisian glamour, crafted to embody the spirit of a fun-seeking it-girl.

This fragrance brings a more intense, addictive chypre woody–floral incarnation.

At the top, creamy incense, the signature of Fame, mesmerises with a hypnotic effect, while at the heart, a jasmine trio tailor-made for the brand is harnessed in an essence that envelops with the luminous clarity of the flower itself.

The base brings a newfound intensity and richness with mineral musk, also known as Helvetolide, which delivers a softer facet with a fruity pear feel and smooth ambrette undertones.

Classic appeal

Bulgari’s Omnia fragrance trio was crafted around three gemstones: crystal, amethyst and red coral.

Crystalline is inspired by the aquatic transparency of the lotus flower, sublimated by the airy generosity of a white peony accord, Amethyste embodies the myriad scents of iris gardens dappled with morning dew, while expressing the soft shine and noble refinement of amethyst.

Coral, inspired by the solar vitality of red coral, brings to life the incandescent energy of the vibrant gem in a striking signature.

Fruity and floral

From Hermes, the Tutti Twilly d’Hermes Eau de Parfum was created to capture the essence of the strong-willed girls.

A floral and fruity fragrance with rebellious character, it is crafted with sweet ginger flowers, soft lychee and enveloping musk.

Its lantern bottle has a square shape and is decorated with an inverted lychee-red gradient, its white cap adorned with a silk ribbon, each one hand-knotted and unique.

Vivacious energy

Carolina Herrera’s Bad Boy Extreme is a fiery new fragrance that boldly explores a daring new tension between fresh ginger and the warmth of vetiver des sables, with a hit of deep cocoa absolute and a woody base of patchouli.

At one end of this tension lies a shimmering spicy citrus top note, the prime component of which is a completely re-invented use of ginger.

To amp up this vitality, ginger is joined by a zesty note of fresh bergamot, which adds a linear and long-lasting brightness to the scent.

The complementing contrast to this vivacious energy is the warm heart of vetiver des sables.

Fragrance of warmth


Sisley’s Eau du Soir Eau de Parfum Limited Edition features the work of French painter Ymane Chabi-Gara on its bottle.

The painting of vegetal scrolls and rich, warm shades of yellow and soft blue fit perfectly with the impressions evoked by the fragrance, in which the freshness of citrus fruits is combined with the sensuality of flowers, highlighted with an elegant chypre signature.

The fragrance has top notes of grapefruit, mandarin and pepper, middle notes of syringa, jasmine and rose, with base notes of oakmoss, patchoulli and musk.
