Her Scents For You

If she has been sneakily using your perfumes, it’s payback time.

Angel by Thierry Mugler: This Nineties scent kick started the trend towards gourmand perfumes. With notes like caramel, chocolate and cotton candy, Angel is a medley of all her food ‘urges’ in one bottle. That’s probably good news for you if you need external intervention to create some chemistry. If this scent doesn’t make you good enough to eat, nothing else will. There’s a flip side though – Angel is also one of the potent scents that works best only if used judiciously. An overzealous spritz could leave both of you and everyone in the room with a headache.

Jean Paul Gaultier Classique: Launched first as ‘Jean Paul Gaultier EDP for Women’ this was the first ever fragrance from the ‘enfant terrible’ of the fashion world. It debuted around the same time Jean Paul Gaultier designed Madonna’s conical bra. The female torso bottle might remind you of the male torso that houses Le Male, one of the boldest men’s fragrances ever. This scent is a blend of florals and notes like orange and ginger that keep getting tossed into men’s scents these days. The strong presence of vanilla effectively neutralizes the florals.  

D&G Light Blue – Dolce and Gabbana for women: If you forgot to pack a bottle of perfume for that beach holiday all you can do is hope she has a spare bottle handy. If it’s D&G Light Blue you might actually be in luck. Crafted by master perfumer Olivier Cresp (the nose behind Versace’s crisp summer fragrance Eau Fraiche) this sparkling summer fragrance is inspired by a spot of Mediterranean ‘La Dolce Vita’. With fresh and calming notes like Sicilian lemon, apple and bamboo, it’s just what you need for a day on the deck chair.

Eau des Merveilles Hermès for women: Hermès has its share of unisex fragrances, and this women’s fragrance could walk into that list. Perfumers Ralph Schwieger and Nathalie Feisthauer set out to create a sparkling women’s scent that broke stereotypes about women’s fragrances and deliberately avoided floral notes. This is one scent that smart sales staff at fragrance counters might actually try selling to gentlemen. It’s probably the strong presence of orange and lemon in the opening notes that could conjure images of your favourite refreshing after shave lotion.

Mon Jasmin Noir L'Eau Exquise Bvlgari for women: If you wake up in her pad and need to rush to work, pick a mild women’s scent unless you want to be the butt of your co-workers jokes. A lighter version of the original Mon Jasmin Noir, this scent combines citrus fruits like Pomelo and grapefruit with almond that push the Jasmine to the background. If you like inoffensive, relaxed scents to help you get through a frenetic day at the office, this mild Bvlgari perfume should do the trick.
