3 Luxe fragrances to get you party-ready this season

Got a slew of parties and events lined up this holiday season? Complete your outfit with a chic, nuanced fragrance that serves as the perfect finishing touch to your Insta-worthy #OOTD. We explore three redolent scents you can get your hands on this month:

If you liked Annick Goutal Tenue de Soirée’s sweet notes, their latest Nuit Et Confidences is one to add to your collection for its sensual composition. Inspired by the intellectual mise en scène of Paris, the fragrance has a full-bodied character by way of bergamot and pepper alongside frankicense and tonka bean for a slightly earthy touch. The scent rounds off wonderfully with vanilla and white musks that give it a sophisticated denouement.

Available at Kens Apothecary.

If heady, evocative scents are a mainstay in your fragrance arsenal, opt for the new Penhaligon’s As Sawira. While the cacophony of notes might cause your sensory receptors to go to overdrive, take a moment and dwell in its Oriental, woody facets that are more than meets the nose. Notes of saffron and bergamot open the scent along with astringent hints of absinthe and davana, jasmine and rose. But we aren’t done just yet—a combination of cardamom and clove add a spicy kick that complement the delicate notes of myrrh, gaiac, sandalwood and patchouli. 

Available in Isetan KLCC.

Put on your best dress and highest heels to take on the town this season. But before you go, take on Carolina Herrera Good Girl for a dash of allure. With notes of jasmine, cocoa and Tonka bean, the fragrance has a dual nature that gives it an edge. Notes include the delicate tuberose—touted as the scent’s ‘wild card’; almond, and coffee for vibrancy. If you aren’t captivated by the sleek, ultra high and thin gold heel that the eau de parfum is encased in, feast your eyes on the midnight blue glass bottle that comes in a glittery edition this season, thanks to sequins in three different hues.

Available in key departmental stores and Sephora.
