Fruity, floral notes for those who can’t get over the mush
1. Dior Sauvage is a wildly seductive masculine fragrance, where fresh top notes of bergamot run into ambroxan, obtained from precious ambergris.
2. Live Irresistible by Givenchy is a lively composition of fruits, flowers and spices. It opens with juicy accords of pineapple, followed by a bouquet of roses, and ends with notes of amber.
3. Love Story by Chloe is a reminder of the Parisian love locks. It is a floral composition of orange blossoms, neroli and jasmine from Madagascar.
4. Poison Girl by Dior is aimed at the younger fan club of the brand. Made for rebellious young women, it consists of Sicilian bitter orange, heart of roses, Venezuelan tonka bean, sandalwood from Sri Lanka, tolu balm, almond and vanilla.
5. Estée Lauder Modern Muse Le Rouge is a fruity-floral oriental that plays on the provocative contrast between two distinctively different accords — rich roses awakened by ripe fruit and velvet crème.
6. Nina Ricci L’Extase is an erotic scented offering that is built around two accords — barley rose and musky amber.
