Spring means time for a fresh new fragrance and we’ve found some fabulous scents that are flirty, feminine and best of all available in SA – for less than R500 each!
Fragrances are often on our birthday or Christmas wish lists – they are special treats that we hint at for gifts, or something we treat ourselves to when we get a bonus at work or a refund from SARS.
But spring is a reason to celebrate too, and we’ve found some gorgeous perfumes that won’t put too much pressure on the credit card. From playful, everyday fragrances to sultry date night scents, there’s something for everyone…
New from Elizabeth Arden: Green Tea Pomegranate
Women all over SA love Elizabeth Arden’s tea fragrances – from white to green, scented with cherry blossom and fig, these value for money 100ml fragrances sell out at beauty counters as soon as they’re released.
The newest one – Green Tea Pomegranate – is a fresh and fruity fragrance, perfect for a vibrant and energetic woman, and described by the brand as Sparkling. Bright. Delicious.
A fresh blend of fruity and floral (imagine delicious notes that include scarlet pomegranate, granadilla, Earl Grey tea, white Magnolia, violet leaves and rasberry blossom), this new addition to the Green Tea fragrance collection is one of my favourite daytime fragrances. And at only R460.00 for 100ml, it’s going to last all through spring and summer.
Sunflowers Sunlit Showers – the new fragrance from the Elizabeth Arden Sunflower range
Iridescent. Playful. Dewy. Three words that sum up the this fun summer fragrance.
A clean, earthy fragrance inspired by the perfumer’s sighting of a rainbow after a summer rain shower, the latest addition to the Sunflowers range is a youthful, happy summer scent.
With notes of mandarin, red currant, bergamot, magnolia, violet, summer peach, pink Jasmine, musk, sandalwood and white amber, it’s the prefect choice for the outdoor girl – or to evoke the scents of summer holidays on a day in the office.
