New Fragrances for the New Year and Valentine's Day

Monday, January 14, 2019

The smell of different perfumes always brings back great memories to me and I love to start each year off using something new. I also use a new one when I go on holiday or have a special event so that each time I smell it I'm instantly transported back to that happy time.

There are a lot of amazing fragrances out at the moment for both men and women and I'm really looking forward to sharing some of my top picks for 2019 with you. 

First up is DKNY's newest kid on the block, DNKY Stories (£43.50 - £79.50). DKNY fragrances are usually known for their iconic apple shaped bottles, but Stories has had a city slick new makeover and focuses on the New York skyline and a slightly more grown up glass bottle. 
Inspired by the endless possibilities of New York City and the freedom to make it your own, DKNY Stories is alive with the inspiration of a new generation of dynamic women - living inventing and re-inventing themselves and their stories.
DKNY Stories eau de parfum could be described as fl-oriental, slightly floral with a modern, almost spicy edge, each time you wear it, the fragrance re-invents itself in the sense you can pick out a different fragrance note which I love.  

Top notes: Pink Pepper, Pink Guava Mousse, Black Cardamom
Mid notes: Jasmine Sambac, White Tea, Black Iris
Base notes:Vanilla Bean, White Sandalwood, Grey Amber Accord. 

Buy this if you love: Sweet but spiced, sensual scents without overpowering florals. 

For lovers of the Big Apple style bottles, fear not, as some new releases of these are set for 2019 too. The DKNY Pool Party collection comes out early February and features delicious scents Mai Tai, Bay Breeze and Lime Mojito... yum.

Aramis is one of my absolute favourite male grooming brands. I love the rich, masculine scents and the newest fragrance, Aramis Tobacco Reserve eau de parfum (£50 - £70) is a delight. 
Inspired by the finest tobacco from Havana and the fine things a man seeks in life, Tobacco Reserve is alluring, warm and bold with notes of Tobacco, Clary Sage and the subtle sweetness of Tonka Bean. 
My partner really enjoyed wearing this and to be honest I've had a sneaky go of it myself, its just lovely. 

Buy this if you like: Warm, slightly sweet tobacco scents. 

Some Scents to look out for coming soon are Michael Kors Sparkling Blush and Tory Burch Fou de Toi Love Relentlessly launching just in time for Valentine's Day too!

With Valentine's Day looming I'd be more than pleased with any of these scents and I'm sure my other half would too!
