5 All-pink fragrances to celebrate your inner femininity
In the pink
Who says the colour pink isn't a representation of power is likely mistaken. If it doesn't remind you of sugar, spice, and everything nice, you might incline more towards its association of universal love and inner peace—something we all could use from time to time. From heady musky notes of sandalwood to refreshingly light florals, which pink-bottled scented goodness are you?
For a full-on, feminine fragrance that's potent enough to last for four hours without being overwhelming, Shiseido's new scent Ever Bloom is one elegant olfactory must-have in our books. Orange blossom absolute, gardenia, and Sylkolide musk make up its inner accord, while sophisticated notes of cyclamen, lotus, and rose essence blend together for a radiant, fresh finish. Need a scent that's empowering yet feminine? This one is right up your alley thanks to its addictive notes.
Shiseido Ever Bloom is available November 2016 at all Shiseido counters nationwide.
For the free-spirited girl who loves nothing but an unpredictable adventure, Juicy Couture's Viva La Juicy Rosé (RM300 for 50ml) is a toast to your exuberant nature with a bouquet of honey-like pink blossoms. Cloaked with citrus notes such as Italian mandarin and William pear with dewy jasmine petals, the heart notes bloom with floral notes via Provence roses, white peony and jasmine sambac. And of course, no perfume for the extroverted female is complete without a decadent touch of ambrox, benzoin and orris absolu for an air of michief. Extra points for that ombré pink-gold glittered bottle and snazzy pink bow—just about the pink-est (and girliest) addition for your dresser!
Can't resist a fruity fresh fragrance that reminds you of springtime in a blooming garden? DKNY Fresh Blossom Crystallized (RM275) comes in a reinterpreted crystal bottle with a scent that's inspired by the apple blossoms found in New York City's Central Park. And as with every DKNY scent, the delicate apple notes take center stage here while aqueous notes add fluidity. A combination of rosewater, pink freesia and honeysuckle offers a refreshing floral twist, while raspberry, white musk and sandalwood gives it a warm enveloping feeling tantamout to an embrace.
Those who love woody, musky scents would be beguiled with Michael Kors Sexy Blossom (RM310 for 50ml). As per its name, you can now embrace the sexy side you never knew you had with a heady combination of sweet lychee, pink peonies and sandalwood. Inspired by the essence of spring, the scent begins with top notes of rose petals and dewy leaves, leaving accords of pink orchid and freesia at its trail. The base notes that are made up of ambrox, musk and sandalwood round off the fragrance beautifully with a touch of velvety smoothness.
To boost your confidence and channel your best #BossGirl attitude, take on Rihanna's new scent, RiRi (RM255) that brings a bout of floral fruitiness unlike any other. If you prefer understated perfume bottle designs, this one is made for you. Its top notes include mandarin, cassis, rum, and passionfruit with a floral heart of pink freesia, jasmine, orange blossom, and honeysuckle. This Eau de Parfum has an undercurrent of sweetness thanks to vanilla in its base notes of Indonesian sandalwood, skin musk, and Siam benzoin.
